I’ve reviewed the MIUI ROM months ago when it was in still its beta stages. After months of upgrades, I’ve finally got a chance to review it again and wow, MIUI ROM for the Nexus S and Nexus S 4G have gotten really spectacular with a ton of more features.
First and foremost, the MIUI ROM doesn’t have 4G support for Nexus S 4G but other than that, there’s only good things I can say about the latest MIUI ROM.
When I first tried MIUI ROM on the Nexus S, it was very laggy and slow but the recent versions have cleaned up all that lag.
Coupled with Trinity 1.544Ghz overclocked kernel, I was getting Quadrant benchmarking numbers over 5000!
MIUI ROM comes with a completely different UI from Android stock UI, something some of you may enjoy.
MIUI ROM has a clear, distinctive menus plus the ability to change to hundreds of free themes using the Themes app.
There’s also DND feature to block any calls from telemarketers and your ex-girlfriend.
You will find many extra features in the MIUI ROM you won’t find anywhere else. My suggestion is to give it a go and let me know what you think.
The MIUI ROM doesn’t come with SU and SuperUser so you will have to flash Superuser again, just flash this in CWM after flashing ROM and kernel:
