Default Looking for a stable stock ICS ROM w/out bloatware

The title says it all. I am looking for a ROM that is as identical as possible to the ICS version distributed to the S2 i777, but without the bloatware. If you guys can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Thank you in advance.

You may give this a try.

I haven't tried it yet because I am in CM9 right now.

You could try ShoStock2. While it does use the Apex launcher, it's built upon TouchWiz, so it's very Samsung-like. It is quite bloat-free.

This was a good one. Used it for a bit, then went back to AOKP.

Shostock is good but didn't like using exchange for e-mail.

Been running ShishirROM for a few weeks now. I also get pretty good battery life out of it.

Lots of options for this model of phone.

The thing is you are going to have to use a rom built on stock if you want the Swype keyboard that comes with Samsung Phones. If a rom that is not built on the stock rom comes with Swype, it is doing so without permission and definitely not condoned around here.
