Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Nexus S 4G Leaked

The wait for Nexus S 4G's Ice Cream Sandwich update, it seems, is finally going to be over. An Android 4.0 ROM that pretty much resembles an official release has been leaked onto the XDA Developers forum. The ROM highlights the OS version as Android 4.04, and is accompanied by the handset's baseband.

Google started pushing the ICS 4.0 update to the GSM variant of the Nexus S back in December itself. Despite the availability of unauthorised 3rd party ICS ROMs in the market, Google has so far refrained from disclosing any concrete information regarding when the official update is finally going to hit the 4G variant of the device.

So far, the initial feedback from the XDA forum members has been fairly on the positive side, meaning the overall performance seems to be pretty much stable. Also, there are reports that the WiMAX speeds increase to a great extent on installing the new baseband.

"If the performance of the leaked ROM is anything to go by, Sprint can't be too far from pushing this update out to the public," reports the Verge.

If you want to get give this leaked ROM a go, you may try it but, you may do it at your own risk.
