This is one of the most stable roms I've used and as a bonus it's an ICS rom.

If your looking for a decent root guide have a look at this one.

This looks like what Im after. Ive been looking at Cyanogen but this rom looks better tbh. Ive looking at a tutorial for Cyanogen and it says I will also need to install google apps via zip through the clockwrok recovery. Will I have to do the same with your rom?? Sorry if my question sounds stupid but I dont want to make any mistakes and screw my nexus up. I have already backed it up to be on the safe side. Thanks.

Trying out your ROM now,nice and smooth. I like that you used the stock kernel,I seem to get problems with most custom kernels.
