Android ICS 4.0 experience on my Nexus S
When I saw the footage of the OS 4.0 version of Android, I was both dissapointed by the "IceCream" designation, but really excited by what I saw.
So I decided to root my stock OS 2.3.7 Nexus S 4G, and go for the upgrade via ROM, instead of just waiting for the 4.0 upgrade to come to all Sprint users.
(I rooted the phone using ShabbyPenguin's amazing one click Root app), and then downloaded the ICS Rom from XDA Developers (oICS) version 25, which worked absolutely fantastic. (you may want to google for the file oicsv25.zip, 187MB). Used TWRP 1.1.1 to flash the zip.
I have working WiFi, and everything else. Still buggy are:
- No 4G support
- Video capture (still laggy)
The rest is really marvelous, the menus are snappy, the phone operation is very smooth. Anyhow, thought I would share, feel like its been a great improvement (not that it was bad, but it is better now).
