One of the most popular ROM’s for the world of Android along with CyanogenMod is MIUI, and today we have good news regarding their development of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the Galaxy Nexus. MIUI has been available for multiple devices for a long time and we’ve seen a few hacked or ported ROM’s for the Galaxy Nexus but now the official MIUI ICS for “toro” the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is available in all its glory.
Originally MIUI started off looking a bit like iOS and still holds true to that with no actual app launcher, but it has evolved into a beautiful and popular version of Android. Their lockscreen shown above, for example, is awesome and gives users more options than anything you’d ever need — and we love it. This is Android 4.0.3 ICS but it has been improved and tweaks for the ultimate user experience, look, and speed and anyone that has tried MIUI in the past should know what to expect.
Obviously this is a custom ROM, you’ll need to be rooted, unlocked, and all that other good stuff but we’d suggest giving it a try. This coming direct from the MIUI team, not a kang, and it appears to be fully functional with just about everything working. The RootzWiki thread has a few issue reports but for the most part it seems to be running great for everyone. If you’ve not tried MIUI yet, or wanna give something other than CM9 a try feel free to hit the Rootz link and give it a try today. Let us know what you think of the speed and performance.
