Ice Cream Sandwich sure seems to be the flavor of the day. But whats the next best thing to a full fledged Android 4.0 ICS ROM?? An ICS themed Gingerbread ROM, what else?

So for those of you who went ahead and installed one of the ICS Alpha builds on your beloved GS2s, and loved the ICS look, but wished to go back to regular Gingerbread till the kinks were ironed out in ICS ─ we present to you ICScrewD. ICScrewD has been developed by XDA member jivy26, and is a Gingerbread 2.3.6 version based ROM. It is pre-rooted, completely deodexed & zipaligned, based on the XWKK5 firmware, and comes with all of the Samsung bloatware stripped. At first glance, I must say it looks awesome.

  • Jkay 13.2 Deluxe
  • Roboto Font
  • Android 4.0 Keyboard (See below for APK)
