If you are into custom ROMs at all, it's likely you have heard of MIUI. While its "fruity" UI is a deal-breaker for some, if you use any third-party launcher (LauncherPro, ADW, etc.), you'll find a well-built and speedy alternative to the standard list of ROMs (and you don't have to look at rounded squares all day).


Yesterday, the folks at MIUI Developers gave owners of the Desire HD and EVO 4G a tasty treat - namely, a new version of MIUI based on Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). The EVO and DHD aren't the only ones lined up for a taste of Gingerbread MIUI, either; on their news page, the developers state that versions for the Droid Incredible, Desire, Milestone, and Nexus One are in the works (in that order). The Nexus One is at the back of the line because of issues surrounding moving full apps to an ext partition of the SD card.

Other than a few bugs with text and the lockscreen, it looks to be running just dandy, so if you are looking to try something new, or if you are already a MIUI fan, hit the download links and get in on the action.

    What's wrong with a rounded circle? Isn't that the idea of being a circle?

      It refers to the bacgrounds that MIUI puts on the icons.

      It's a really good project.

    I feel that owners of the Mytouch 4G are being left out of all this ROMs :/

      If you like Sense, you could check out RoyalGlacier at XDA...

    The Galaxy S line has a pretty decent port going as well. It's still a beta, but not bad.

    Installing now. Pretty pumped

    I tried this with savage zen kernel and it boots for like 5 minutes and the boot logo loops and never loads. miui is awesome to death. I am in love. Way cooler than cyanogen or any sense...i just wish themes worked on all versions of miui instead of malfunctioning. I have 1.3.5 themed with chase black and blue and dont wanna have to start over with that blue dialer lmao

  • Joel

  • Milad

  • Sir Steed

    It's bites there is no 4G. What's up with that? Deal breaker.

    hey guys, miui-evo dev here, there is no 4g because miui is a closed source project by chinese devs at miui.com
    but there is always a possibility it could happen ;)

    feel free to drop by our forums if you have any questions, or follow my twitter @stiffspliff for the most up to date news hehe

    I tried this ROM a few times and got FC for everything I tried to do the first time I thought I pushed it wrong but I started from scratch and wiped everything and still just FC. It does look awesome underneath the FC screen though. SupersonicEVO
