Modders, hackers, developers and lovers of all things root, your time has come. It has just been announced over on the Android Building Google Groups page that the source code for Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0, is available now.

Now that the source code for Ice Cream Sandwich is available, it should only be a matter of time before custom Android 4 ROMs, like CyanogenMod, start making their way online. Not only that, but it means that the official update for the Nexus S should be available soon.

The exact version of Android that hit the Android Open Source Project today is Android 4.0.1. According to Google developer Jean-Baptiste M. “JBQ” Queru, it’s the build that will ship with the Galaxy Nexus.

According to a poll we ran here at Android and Me just a couple weeks back, a lot of you out there like to root and are all about the custom ROMs. So what do you think, who will be the first dev to publish a legitimate ICS ROM from source? And what kind of goodies are tucked inside the code? There will definitely be some surprises to come out of the release, so be sure to stay tuned for any updates.
