MIUI ROM for Rooted Nexus S and Nexus S 4G! [5000+ Quadrant][1.544Ghz OC]

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.

Download ROMs here:

Download MIUI ROM for Nexus S
Download MIUI ROM for Nexus S 4G

If you want overclocking, download Trinity kernel here and flash after the ROM: (Works on both Nexus S and S 4G)

Trinity 1.44Ghz OC

Trinity 1.544Ghz OC

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:

    Why, why, why do you not have AdFree installed?

    • Nexus S Hacks says:

      AdFree doesn’t allow me to go to certain sites like statcounter which I must use to check stats on the site. So, it’s not really great for me.

    Hi I cant get muimui on, I installed the nscollab which works ok but want to put mui on. it wont load into recovery. I go to ROM manager, then flash clockowrkmod recovery, then reboot into recovery. It just comes up with the google and unlocked padlock and stays frozen- no booting into recovery with blue writing. Even if I do the power+vol up button then click recovery it does same thing. AM I missing step? I tried factory reset. just froze at same screen did nothing.

    • Nexus S Hacks says:

      how did you do factory reset then if you couldn’t get into recovery, did you get into stock recovery?

      • oliver says:

        oh, I did it via settings> privacy> factory data reset. I take it that’s not proper reset. I just can’t access that damn recovery menu

        • Nexus S Hacks says:

          Turn off your phone hold down Volume Up and Power button then you will see.

          • oliver says:

            ye did that, have 4 options:reboot bootloder, reboot, recovery, power off. I chose recovery, goes to google with unlocked padlock underneath and stays like that,frozen. Won’t load. Note that I have followed ur guide and installed nscollab so not total noob.

  7. Nexus S Hacks says:

    reinstall recovery from fastboot then goto recovery?

    fastboot flash recovery cwm-xxx-xx.xxx

    something like that.

    • oliver says:

      got it= I went to rommanager, flashed, turned off phone straight away, boot up (power + vol up) and it let me into recovery. I swear I did that few times. got lucky.

  8. oliver says:

    cheers for help
