F1 GalaxyNexus ROM – Turn your Galaxy S II into pure ICS device

If you are looking for an AOSP ROM for your Galaxy S II then I strongly suggest the F1 GalaxyNexus AOSP ROM. I must say that this ROM is 100% pure Galaxy Nexus experience. It is very stable and battery friendly ROM. It uses CyanogenMod 9 Kernel and also it runs on Siyah Kernel if you want to use it.

The sole purpose of this project build is to give Galaxy S II users the pure Android Ice Cream Sandwich experience. I am using this ROM for almost a month now and I have no complains whatsoever.
