Developer builds custom ICS ROM for Nexus S

A few days ago, Google released the source code for Ice Cream Sandwich and in the process offered details how to get started with it. It has not been even a week, since the said source code has been made available, but a developer has already released a custom ROM of Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich for the Nexus S. According to a post by Kwiboo over at XDA developers, a custom build of ICS AOSP for the Nexus S is available and it is apparently stable.

The post goes on to read that most of the features of Ice Cream Sandwich are working, but there are a few features, which are not functional such as data usage statistics, USB storage support as well as the camcorder. The developer also states that this kernel is the custom build from the aosp source (same as stock 2.3.7). The same post goes on to detail that other kernels would not work, unless mxt224 patch for the touchscreen and the pvr-driver patch is installed first.

The developer notes that one should download at their own risk. To get the custom build of Ice Cream Sandwich on a Nexus S, click the link here.
