    MIUI Custom Rom First Impressions


    By Gonzo13 from NexusOneForum.net

    So I rooted my Nexus One not too long ago and was pretty impressed with Cyanogen mod 6, the very 1st ROM I ended up using. The extra customization and enhanced features were what made me decide to take the plunge. Well, as was to be expected, I've since got the itch to try more of the many, many ROMs available out there and this post is to tell you about the one I've decided to stick with... for now. It's called MIUI ("My UI") and it's vastly different from the stock Froyo or Cyanogen mods I was used to using.

    Now before I get into the thick of it let me just start by saying this is NOT going to explain the process of installing this on your phone. You can search these wonderful forums of ours if you want to give it a spin but you're doing so at your OWN risk. We are not responsible for any damage, permanent or otherwise, that is done to your phone if you decide to root and install this or any other ROM.

    The first and most noticeable difference is the lack of any sort of launcher and/or app drawer. This particular ROM chooses to place all your applications, iPhone style, on your home screens. Now, seeing as my 1st smartphone was the iPhone 3G I've had plenty of time to get accustomed to this type of interface. That said, I do prefer the Android app drawer over this style but not enough to make me stop using this ROM. If I wanted to I could install ADW Launcher or something to that extent but, in my eyes, that would fragment the experience that the dev is trying to create here. I'll just suck it up and take the hit on this one.

    I'm using this on my Incredible and has quickly become my favorite ROM. Extremely fast and clean. Being able to set up folders and categorize apps is amazing. I had Desire HD loaded for less than three hours before going back to this one.

    Absolute winner. Plus, it's fun to terrorize people with iPhones by showing them this.

    i love this rom and metickone's new version is really snappy even at lower clock rates, i actually run my droid at 700mhz now instead of 1ghz because its feels the same and i save on battery.
