If you’re an owner of a Samsung smartphone and have tried installing custom ROMs on it, you would most likely have heard about VillainROM. It is one of the custom ROMs that ring a bell in many people’s ears, especially when talking of custom ROMs for Samsung handsets. Developers of VillainROM have made a name for themselves, especially with their work on custom ROMs for popular Samsung devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S2.
This time around, the ROM’s developers have set their eyes on a new target: the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the hottest thing from Samsung right now. Just recently, the ROM developers have released version 1.1 of VillainROM. This new ROM is intended for the Galaxy Nexus and is compiled from the open source code of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (branch android-4.0.1_r1.2 (ITL41F) from the Android Open Source Project repository) rather than the stock ROM on the Galaxy Nexus.
According to the developer, release 1.1 of VillainROM includes or features the following:

But, first, some requirements:
Follow the instructions carefully in order to successfully install this custom ROM. If you are not sure about what you are doing, then it is advised for you not to proceed or get someone with some experience in this stuff to help you out.

Congratulations! Your Galaxy Nexus now runs VillainROM release 1.1 based on Ice Cream Sandwich.

I don’t see the point of installing a 3rd party ROM on the Galaxy Nexus because the Stock ROM is built from AOSP just like every other 3rd party ROM. It is a Nexus device after all. I do however see the benefit in unlocking the phone and running a 3rd party kernel as those can increase the performance of the device.

How about you kill yourself? Sorry if people like to have a nexus because it isn’t full of the touchwiz $H1tware. It’s just that it destroys the $hi77y GSII in every way.
