SIMPLISTIC - ICS for optimal speed, stability and useability!

This ROM is based on CM9 from Arco, but heavily improved and optimized!
This ROM contains no fancy mods or themes and is purely made for a clean, fast and smooth experience!

Improved Functions


  • CM9 Alpha 8
  • New boot animation
  • New default wallpaper
  • Disabled automatic debug mode
  • Changed date format to: dd-MM-yyyy
  • Optimized Heap-size for improved multitasking
  • Optimized WiFi scan interval for improved battery
  • Several basic and other tweaks i forgot to mention
  • Removed the face unlock function since its bugged and not working
  • Improved the Google Apps installation package (removed useless apps and updated the remaining)
  • Increased overall free space and memory performance by cleaning the ROM (removing useless apps)



  • Please visit: Arco's Thread for the most recent bugs and fixes
  • If you come across other bugs or non working functions, please let me know and i will try to fix them



  • Install CWM5 or CWM6 and make a backup
  • Do a complete wipe (System/Cache/Data/Sdcard/Emmc)
  • Copy the Simplistic ICS Beta file on your phone and install the zip (do not reboot)
  • Copy the Gapps file on your phone and flash the zip directly after the ROM installation
  • Reboot the phone and enjoy your latest and greatest Simplistic ICS Beta 1 installation

    I am not responsible for any damage to your phone
    Special thanks to ARCO for making ICS possible on our SGS+

Angry More ICS ROMS are awesome
Very interesting.
I think its an idea to help with fixing the last bugs and than considering making your own ROM based on Ice Cream Sandwich.

Keep up the good work however, it took a while.. Your other topic was "under construction"

Hey Durch, great to see a new Rom from you. Perhaps this can replace Simplistic Plus Final I as my Rom of daily use. Hail to the King, Baby

It's good to see You again! Simplistic was my first and the best light custom rom. Now I'm waiting for download links this going to be awesome
PS is it possible to return to stock ics music apk? I personally don't like Apollo.
