Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 ROM available for rooted Nexus S

October 25th, 2011

beezy over at XDA Developers is getting credit for the porting of Ice Cream Sandwich to the Nexus S.

Link the the Androidcentral.com forum dealing with this topic
*This is not for novice Android users*

Google has said the the Nexus S will receive ICS sometime in the near future. (could be months?) The awesome developers over at XDA have, yet again taken matters into their own hands and ported the SDK release to the Nexus S and also the Nexus One.

As you can see, the screen shots show off Android 4.0. But they do not prove that ICS is actually running on the Nexus S. I do not believe that anyone on XDA would try to pull a fast one…so I would believe that this is 100% correct. The video below helps to convince.


The ROM shown in this video runs particularly smooth. This bodes well for those of us excited by the prospect of getting this running on our phones soon.

This Halloween Live Wallpaper has an interactive function that can be activated by enabling the ‘Animation’ function. Clicking on some of the Jack-O-lanterns will light them up.

The image above shows the stretch across your Android screens and is also nearly big enough to use as a standard desktop wallpaper at 1280X800.
