HTC did a great job with the Incredible S. This smartphone is nicely built from the inside out. The device is packed with a decently powered 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 4-inch Super LCD display. Combined with its sleek design, the HTC Incredible S made it to the list of popular Android smartphones.
One of the things that made this device popular is the ever-dependable Sense UI which is preloaded on the device like most HTC smartphones that run the Android platform. And, as popular and dependable as it may seem, we still have to acknowledge the fact that there will be people who’d prefer something else. This is where the idea of building custom ROMs come into play.
The highly customizable nature of Android made the concept of custom ROMs possible. When it comes to custom ROMs, MIUI is one of the best. The ROM originated in China and eventually made it to the U.S. through the efforts of the Android community. MIUI is known for its stability, its fast processing speed, and its iPhone-like user interface.
You may already have some idea of where we’re heading right now. And yes, your hunch is indeed correct. We are going to look into the steps on how to install or port MIUI into the HTC Incredible S. You may now be asking: why bother? Basing on experience and user reviews, putting the two together did generate a very good outcome. The Incredible S seems to run a bit faster with MIUI and the battery seems to last longer, too. So, are you up for the challenge? Go ahead, read on.
As in any other Android hacking endeavor, we have to prepare the device first so that things will be smooth and orderly. The preparation stage will involve a lot of processes; please do carefully follow these processes to avoid messing up the device.
Now that everything is already set, we can now install the MIUI custom ROM into the HTC Incredible S. Just to reiterate, please proceed with caution and do thoroughly read the steps before proceeding.
The steps in porting MIUI into the HTC Incredible S may look somewhat long, but they are worth it. Have you tried putting MIUI on your HTC Incredible S?
