XDA member irtehun has just released a brand new custom ROM based on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Nexus S. It’s called Nuhetri reloaded v 2.3.0, and is touted to be the fastest ICS ROM to date for the Nexus S. The same developer also developed a similar ROM for the Nexus S 4G as well, which we posted a couple of hours ago here.
Read on to learn how you can install Nuhetri Reloaded on your Nexus S

If any damage occurs to you or your device, we won’t be held liable — you only will be responsible, you’ve been warned!
This guide is applicable only for the Nexus S. Check your phone’s version in Settings – About Phone. It has to be GT-I9020 for this procedure to be compatible with your phone. If it’s not GT-I9020, please do not try this.
Developer: irtehun (XDA)
-Extended Power Menu
What doesn’t work:
Whats to come:
-Status Bar widgets (i hope)
- Rooted Nexus S with Clockworkmod recovery installed
- This procedure will wipe all your apps, data and settings (but it will NOT touch your SD card, so don’t worry about those). Backup your Apps and important data — bookmarks,contacts, SMS, APNs (internet settings), etc. This Android backup guide would help you.
- Make sure the battery is sufficiently charged. At least 50% is recommended.
How to Install Nuhetri Reloaded on Nexus S
- Download the latest version of the Nuhetri ROM from the original development page. [ Filename : nuhetri-reloaded-v2.3.0.zip | Size: 163 MB ]
- Now, transfer the file you downloaded in step 1 to your phone sdcard via USB cable
- Turn off your phone. Boot up into Clockworkmod recovery. To do this, hold Volume Up & the Power button until the device boots to the recovery. In recovery, use Volume buttons to navigate and the Power button to select.
- Now scroll to the option “Install zip from sdcard” and select it. Then select “choose zip from sdcard”. Scroll to the ROM file you downloaded in step 1 “ nuhetri-reloaded-v2.3.0.zip” and select it. The ROM will now start installing.
- Now, perform a selective wipe:
- Select “wipe cache partition”, then select “Yes” on next screen to confirm cache wipe (will NOT wipe your SD card). Wait for wipe to complete.
- Select “advanced”, then select “Wipe Dalvik cache”, then select “Yes” to confirm.NOTE: Do NOT wipe data/factory reset, there is a bug and your phone won’t boot if you do. Check the original development thread (linked above) for updates to this, and for now DON’T WIPE.
- After the wipe process has been completed, , select “go back” then select “reboot system now” to reboot the phone.
- You should now boot into the Nuhetri Reloaded ROM powered by Ice cream Sandwich.
