Baidu is sometimes considered the "Chinese Google", starting with a powerful (and relentlessly censored) search engine and expanding into things like email, maps and even mobile services. Now the company has taken it one step further, releasing a complete ROM for the Nexus S, replacing all of Google's services with their own. It's kind of like some of the Bing-branded Android phones Verizon has released, only creepier.
Android Open Kang Project: when it comes to taking advantage of the Galaxy Nexus, no one's going faster or harder. The custom ROM team has one of the most comprehensive modifications to the Galaxy Nexus' nearly unique soft navigation buttons out there already, with custom shortcuts, icons, colors and widgets.

HTC One S. A quick look at the free ROM hosting site Goo.IM shows that noted developer Jacob "ProTekk" Bell has a version of Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) Milestone 5 ready and waiting for the "ville", or One S. He showed off the build on his Twitter account yesterday, but offered no download or instruction.
HTC's bootloader unlock tool. But those few who have access to AT&T's LTE version of the One X have found that using the previously posted bootloader unlock simply won't work - the unlock process returns a failure, and says that the American model isn't allowed. Without an unlocked bootloader, custom ROMs will be difficult, and custom kernels will be almost impossible.
A generous XDA member has posted the Android 4.0 ROM for the HTC EVO 3D, straight from the source and ready for flashing. This particulate software build is intended for Virgin Mobile's US version of the phone, but it will work with The Now Network as well.
