    As far as I know this isn't possible. Out of interest, why would you want to?

    I tried the Galaxy Nexus for 2 weeks and I enjoyed it. Not enough to stick with it but if I could have it as a secondary OS on my 4S I definitely wouldn't mind that.

    Nexus devices always piqued my interest.Nexus one caught my attention,instead got an iPhone.But ICS looks cool id like to run it on my 4S just for the hell of it and to see how well it runs on an A5 device

    Yeah I'd definitely be interesting in trying that if it doesn't affect iOS functionality. The Galaxy Nexus was my first android phone so I don't really know much about them. It was fun rooting my phone, installing custom roms etc but I just missed my jailbroken 4S too much.

    Closest thing I can think of is some dreamboard themes.

    That option is not available for your phone.
    I believe on the iphone 3G and early bootrom 3GS there was a package that installed a dual boot option for an early version of android but not 2.3 or 4.0

    Ice Cream Sandwich combined with HTC's Sense 4.0 is a really nice OS.

    Nope. It's not a simple process to say the least.

    Oh that stinks so all most of these youtube videos showing iPhones running ICS and webOS are probably fake then?

    On YouTube you will find windows 8 running on the iPhone too.

    It might be an Android DreamBoard theme they're showing.
