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 [...]

There’s good news for those of you using Nexus S devices. A MIUI ROM based on Ice Cream Sandwich has finally been released.

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 [...]

Their hardware is top notch and improving significantly each year, they have a good brand name, and can also distribute their devices in over 130 countries. But there’s one element that hasn’t been so great throughout most of its history, and that is their Touchwiz skin. Although, it has constantly improved and new features have been added, I think a lot of people could live without it. This, and the fact that they want to be as good in software as they are in hardware, seems to lead them to a recruiting spree of the top ROM makers from the Android [...]
