Getting ones device to the newest Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread is perhaps the hottest topic right now. Although we weren’t able to find 2.3.5 much different from it’s previous versions, but still the latest version has it’s own significance to Androiders across the globe. Previously we have been discussing on how different Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread ROMs made it to certain devices and today it’s about the Samsung Nexus S / Nexus S 4G. Although there are plenty of 2.3.5 boasting ROMs out there for your flashing pleasure, but if you really need to keep it AOSP, minimal and super fast, then Dev-Null AOSP Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread custom ROM might be the natural choice. For those who don’t know, custom ROMs are 3rd party Android firmware that intend to enhance user experience on select Android devices by deploying different tweaks and packaging useful apps / utilities. Custom ROMs require the users to have permanent root with custom recovery on their device prior to installing / flashing the firmware / ROM zip file. The ROM comes from Dev-Null Team of which AdamG, the Oxygen AOSP ROM fame, is an active part. Other able developers in this group are Python08, thelamus and schiznik. The main features of this AOSP 2.3.5 GB ROM for Nexus S are:
- Android 2.3.5 GRJ90 AOSP Built
- Empowered by Version 126.96.36.199 of Linux Kernel
- Minimalistic Google Apps
- SuperUser, BusyBox
- Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi Network Support
- HSPA Icon
- SIP Calling Over 3G
- Text Reflow With Zoom Option

You can download Dev-Null AOSP 2.3.5 Gingerbread ROM [Nexus S, Nexus S 4G], copy it to your SD Card / SD Ext Root, boot into ClockWorkMod Recovery, perform complete WIPE [Factory Reset] and flash the ROM using Install Zip from SD Card option. In case you are stuck or need Live developer support, then please head to the official XDA ROM thread posted here. We believe that you understand all the risks involved as any damage incurred due to this ROM won’t be claimable through ROM developers or us.
