Install Android 2.3.4 Based Custom Oxygen ROM On Nexus S

samsung-nexus-sOxygen ROMs are AOSP ROMs, ones that are similar to CyanogenMod ROMs, in nature and in recognition. These ROMs are super fast, minimal and give you the most pure Gingerbread experience. While these ROMs started out for the HTC Desire and Desire HD, it has now found it’s way onto the brilliant Nexus S, thanks to XDA-Developers forum member AdamG. The ROM is the first of its type for the Nexus S and hence it has been labeled as a test ROM. More on it and how to install it on your Nexus S after the break.
