Via my rooting video, I’ve already provided you with the necessary steps needed to over clock, backup your system and have free tethering on your Nexus S 4G. Rooting allows you to do all of those things and more, but I know what you may be thinking: “my phone still looks the same!” This is where custom ROMs come into play. There are several of them out there and if I tried to make a list of all of them you’d get sick of reading this article, so for timesake I’ll let you know now that I’ve chosen the CyanogenMod ROM (just as I did with my HTC Hero). If you’re skeptical of flashing this ROM on your Nexus S 4G then check out the video below to see what it looks like. Take note of the changed color of the icons in the notification bar, the lock screen and YES, a notification light! No more having to turn on your phone to see if you received a text/new tweet/new mail/ etc.
