Default Anyone else using ICS?

I just installed the ICS ROM ported (with permission) from Koush's official Nexus S ICS build.

You can get it here:

[PORT][WIP ROM][NS4G] Koush's ICS Build for CDMA [Koush Alpha 10 Based] - xda-developers

Note: you'll want to install the gapps ROM, too, in order to get full functionality.

Just curious if anyone else is using an ICS build on NS4G and what your experience with it is.

I am, but I'm using AOSP's ROM.

[ROM][WIP][ALPHA][NS4G] oICSv13-Working Incoming MMS | AOSP 4.0.1 (ICS) - xda-developers

Working out very well for me thus far. I miss 4G, but oh well, you can't have everything.

I am (using Koush's rom), but so far I am still having trouble with calendar sync and the GPS.

Really awesome otherwise, though.

Yeah, eager to know how its going for other peeps. I decided to finally root my stock Nexus S 4G, there is only one tower here in Modesto, and so long as I have 3G and WiFi, I should be just fine.
(You think still worth rooting, or better off waiting for official OTA update through Sprint?)
Thanks and god bless.

I eventually landed on this one built from the AOSP source:
[ROM][28.11.2011] Brainmaster's tweaked ICS v6 - xda-developers

Flashed the NS4G version after a full wipe, and haven't had any problems at all (well...ok...one lockup in a week, maybe). In my opinion (purely my opinion) ICS is worth jumping on board now, rather than waiting a month or more.
