LG SU660 ICS ROM Ported to Nexus S
Most ROMs typically seen on Nexus devices are derivatives of AOSP. That’s to be expected, as the developer friendly nature is a selling point for many. Sometimes, though, it’s fun to see software typically found on OEM-skinned devices on a Nexus. Such is the case with the Samsung Nexus S, which now has a LG SU660 port.
XDA Senior Member GalaxyUser released the ported ROM. While we’d like to tell you that the ROM is fully functional, it unfortunately isn’t. As it is an initial release, there are some issues. The not working list includes:
Can’t unlocking sim card correctly (see screenshot)
Vibrator (i think i know how to fix that)
android.process.media is force closing sometime (because of External SD)
Camera (because of External SD)
Sometime blocking status bar and home
It was also mentioned that phone calls and text messages aren’t currently possible either. These are issues that are being fixed currently, though, so it is only a matter of time before the ROM is usable. As always, anyone who wants to help out should feel free.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
