How to Install MIUI ROM on Kindle Fire

January 15, 2012

The Kindle Fire is surely getting a lot of developer support lately as it gets MIUI 1.12.29 ROM based on Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread. This ROM comes straight from XDA Developers forum member Leech2082. It certainly is another great news for folks who love to make the most out of their Kindle Fire. In this article you will know how to install MIUI ROM to your Kindle Fire.

This MIUI version of Android for the Kindle Fire has a user interface that is said to be more iPhone-like (a good thing if you like how the iPhone’s interface looks like). Every time a user installs a new app in his or her Kindle Fire, it automatically shows up on the home screen. It’s great because you are allowed to arrange the shortcuts according to your preference.

Android settings and notification areas have also been tweaked by the developers, so you can quickly get to your wireless network, display, screen rotation, and other settings from a “toggles” menu. Also packed into this MIUI ROM is a custom file browser, a custom media player, and support for themes. Android Market is preinstalled and works, so you won’t need hacks just to get Android Market. The ROM also has a Button Savior app that activates on-screen home, back, menu, or search buttons from any screen.

So far, this MIUI ROM for the Kindle Fire is working nicely. The audio, wireless, and touchscreen features are working really great. Though, never expect the ROM to be completely flawless.
