Galaxy S II i9100 Users Now Have Android 4.0 Based MIUI

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 26, 2012

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.

MIUI Officially released for the Epic 4G Touch

by: AlexanderJanuary 16, 2012

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 [...]

How to Update HTC Incredible S with MIUI Custom ROM Firmware

by: JoseDecember 29, 2011

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 [...]
