Before you get too excited, the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the Nexus S currently floating around over at XDA is far from a complete build. Nevertheless, some intrepid developers have managed to tack together a working build of Android 4.0 for last year’s Google flagship phone. Without a proper source code release to work off of, the build is based off of the SDK released by Google shortly after the announcement of the new version of the Android OS.
Some icons are missing, facial recognition doesn’t work, and data connectivity isn’t flawless, but the ROM gives Nexus S owners a preview of what they can expect when Google ships out a final build for the Samsung-made handset.
