Xiaomi may only have released its MIUI 7 operating system a couple of weeks ago, but eager developers have already ported the ROM to a number of handsets from other brands. 69 different devices to be exact, which is quite an accomplishment.
I won’t post the entire list here, as it would be far too long, but there are a range of popular flagship and mid-range handsets on the list. You will find support for the Nexus 4 and 5, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and S4, the LG G Pro, G2 and G3, a number of Sony Xperia Z handsets, the HTC One M8, X and Desire 816, and the OnePlus One, along with a selection of smartphones from Huawei, OPPO and ZTE.
The ROMs are all based on the Chinese version of MIUI 7 and were created using the Patchrom tool, which was only released last Thursday. As usual with these early build types, there are likely to be some bugs and not all features are guaranteed to work, so you’ll have to weigh up the pros and cons if you’re thinking about trying out MIUI 7.
You can find downloads and a complete list of all supported handsets so far over at the MIUI Forum. The forum also contains a flashing guide for each of the smartphones, to help guide you through the process of installing the custom ROM. As always, make full backups and proceed at your own risk.
If anyone out there tries out MIUI 7 for themselves, please share your experiences in the comments below.
