Surly it is far easier to to do this and just install apps to SD?

I have this version of MIUI installed and there is approx 100mb left over for apps - this is typically enough for my essential needs - any others you can just put on the sd card?

The issue is that installing the blackrose thing and then installing one of the ICS roms that use it (texas) is quite complicated - and there are no instruction for the entire process - that also explain the more advanced functions to do this.

Hopefully i'm wrong and someone can point me in the right direction for this?

How hard would it be to release a non blackrose version of a rom (say texas) as well as the usual one - like the aforementioned miui rom?

There was a non blackrose Medroid ICS build but people didn't care too much about it so it got discontinued. IMHO it just doesn't make sense.
Blackrose is no rocket science and it's quite safe if you read a bit before flashing. You can change the nand layout later on so that you can use old roms without wasting nand space. The instructions are in the blackrose thread.

Can you point me in the direction of a good tutorial for blackrose to installing the roms - is it just like flashing a normal rom once the partitioning is complete?

I think some day Nexus One will get full functionality of ICS. I have MIUI on my N1 but still have problems with A2SD. I hope to have ICS on phone soon because it's great!

As said, we already have a couple of pretty nice ICS roms, TexasIce here and MedroidMod here.

They actually have all the functionality of ICS, including HWA but with some minor bugs, check the threads for more info.
