NexusBeam 5.0.0

Hi guys, today i am announcing a brand new ICS based ROM for the Nexus S.
The ROM is using the latest stock Android 4.0.4 IMM76I firmware and works very smooth! The UI feels very fast because Google implented HWcomposer in the latest build and this gives you overall speed improvements.


Screenshot time! :)

Guide:

1) Unlock bootloader (using adb)
2) (If you used adb you have drivers) double click run.bat on your computer when your phone's connected to your computer. This will root and put cwm and SU.
3) Now that you have cwm, put 5.0 in your sdcard
4) Flash via Aroma. Wipe data, cache, and dalvik.
5) Reboot and flash glados if you want.

Thank you for the ROM, but the custom DPI makes it impossible to download a significant portion of my favourite apps from the Marketplace. Any way to reset the DPI to stock settings?

download a density changer from the market, or change density in build.prop from 230 to 240.

no maps in this too? :(
v1.1 will have Gmaps 6.0
