I'm reading some guides on how to build my own ROM, but in the interim I'm wondering if what I'm looking to do is even possible. I came from a Nexus S 4G and had a completely bare-bones ROM (SlimICS). I want to do something similar, the intent being to completely remove all traces of TouchWiz. I want to know if this is even possible, if it's been done, and if not I want to know what the issues are. Also, links to any sort of guides are greatly appreciated.

I highly doubt u will accomplish what u seek by reading some from making guides. Most of the current ones are for gingerbread and not ics. We will not have a touchwizz free rom (otherwise known as also) for quite sometime. That being said our current devs have done a great job of themeing over it and replacing most things. Sky ics 4.2D-6 and NexusMOD are good examples.

Impossible no but it will take a massive amount of knowledge gotta say our boys have been doing a top notch job for having basically nothing I think the project will have better chances once kernel source drops for ics
