Some owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 will stick to what Samsung officially throws their way, while some others will prefer to grab the latest (read: Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich) code based on AOSP builds. But, some others won’t settle for anything less than MIUI 4 on their Galaxy S2 GT-I9100. And, there’s good reason for that.
MIUI is one of the most well-designed custom ROMs for Android. It blends Android’s power and flexibility with the polished user interface of iOS (which, arguably is much better than iOS’s user interface). That is why MIUI, the latest of which is version 4, has a cult of devout fans and loyal followers. XDA Developer member adyscorpius is one of them and has cooked up a version of MIUI 4 (based on CyanogenMod 9) for the Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100.
Aptly called the AdyScorpius MIUI v4 ROM, the custom firmware brings not just Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich to your Galaxy S2, but also the following lip-smacking features (among others):
Think MIUI 4, Ice Cream Sandwich, and those aforementioned features–who wouldn’t be tempted to check out this ROM? If the temptation is too great for you, read on for our quick tutorial on loading up your Galaxy S2 with the AdyScorpius MIUI v4 ROM.
Congratulations! You’ve installed MIUI 4 (AdyScorpius version) with Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100.

Tried it and it was pretty awesome, I do have 2 bugs to report and that’s the video player (even in YouTube) the colours are funny and there’s a green bar at the bottom.
Bug 2 is that when you change the notification bar from page to compact you can’t change it back.
There is also a performance issue with SD write speed (on my S2 AnTuTu Benchmark tells me the SD Write is >50mb but with this ROM it’s about 9.)
It’s really good though and it’s worth flashing especially the widgets are awesome. You may or may not like it but it is really good!
hi i’ve just installed miui 4 and it looks great. But there is NO KEYBOARD. have any suggestions?
hey thanks it works perfectly …. but no ad hoc support :-( is there a fix ?
Can I install this MIUI ROM on my rooted S2 GT-I9100 which is currently on the 4.0.3 firmware?
