F1 GalaxyNexus is a ROM built entirely from Google's ICS source code. The main idea behind this was to give users the experience of pure ICS as it is on the Galaxy Nexus with no visual changes and ZERO bloatware or any 3rd party app. F1 GalaxyNexus is just plain AOSP ICS with under the hood tweaks, optimizations and the features to make AOSP a little bit better. Big Kudos to Teamhacksung as without them this ROM was not possible. This ROM will be updated on a daily basis and will be also updated whenever Teamhacksung improves the device tree or patch new stuff.
