The looks of pure Ice Cream Sandwich appear tantalizing on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but for some people, the device dons a better look if it wears the face of MIUI 4. Owing to a clean and easy-to-use user interface, MIUI is one of the world’s favorites when it comes to custom Android ROMs.
Using the freshest and latest builds from Chinese sources, DroidVicious (the ROM’s developer) took pains to port the Chinese build, translate it, and deodex it so that the rest of the Galaxy Nexus world can enjoy MIUI 4 on their handsets. MIUI, in case you haven’t heard yet, originates in China.
Based on MIUI 4, DroidVicious’ ROM is aptly called [...]
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.

That is why MIUI, the latest of which is version 4, has a cult of devout fans and loyal followers. XDA [...]

If you already know what MIUI is, you’re well aware that it looks nothing similar to the Android versions that are on your device. For one thing, the MIUI is light while the Ice Cream Sandwich has a dark exterior. It is also simple, whereas ICS is full of different menus. Also, MIUI is sleek compared to the others that are clunky.
But because the Android 4.0 version is taking a while to be adapted to other smartphones and tablets other than the Galaxy Nexus S, many are growing tired of waiting. Considering that the Nexus S is still the only device where the ICS OS is officially available in, it is understandable why developers are getting impatient.
The Nexus One is the device that many people had once craved for. But, let’s face it–it is not a hot thing anymore, as better devices are popping out in the market. This is inevitable, though–a time will definitely have to come when a product becomes obsolete. In this case, obsolete in terms of the “What’s the hot thing?” criterion. But, for those who have kept their Nexus One alive, there is great news for you. The time for your Nexus One to get some slick and classy upgrade has finally come.
For those who still do not know, version 4 of the popular MIUI ROM based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich has arrived for the Nexus One. If you want to load up [...]

Finally the Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Epic 4G Touch, now has an official MIUI release. For those who do not know what MIUI is, it’s a ROM that – in many peoples’ opinions – feels a lot like iOS. Mostly due to the fact that there is no app drawer, and all your apps are placed on your homescreen. While others can and will argue that it does not feel like iOS because there is to much customization on MIUI for it to be iOS-like. But we can all say, it’s closer to iOS then Android right?
Anyways let’s get down to business, if you’re an Epic 4G Touch owner, and have rooted your device then you may want to [...]

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 [...]
