    Hey guys. I'm not a noob and I know how to handle my droid. But I have been away from this forum for some time due to work and school. I get back and I'm reading about UD MIUI. So far these screenshots have catched my interests. they look sweet. Now, how would I come across getting this custom UI rom? I'm expecting it's a theme for UD. Can anyone explain to me please or perhaps link me to a proper thread? Thanks in advanced. Cheers :)

    UD and MIUI are very different roms...I suppose there may be a MIUI theme or icon pack for UD but this is the first I've heard of such thing and I can assure you there is no rom out there called UD MIUI...

    Probably a simple mistake. D1 Miui, not UD Miui...

    Hmmm...I know I found that someone was using this term. And thank you for your replies. I am well aware that UD MIUI would not exist, and I too suspected it to be maybe like a theme pack or something. But in any case, any body mind helping me with this MIUI business? It looks pretty sweet and I thought I'd check it out.

    You'd probably have better luck in the miui section. Anyway, I've tried miui but ended up going back to UD the next day. (As happens with all roms I try) Its too iphoneish and the only way I could use it was to use launcherpro as the launcher to hide this. The rom rebooted randomly a time or too but it has a few nice touches such as the lock screen, icons, messaging app, and notification pull down. Try it and see if you like it, but I bet you come back to UD.

    I demos MIUI for a bit. Totally different kind of rom that for sure. Try it out and back it up. Tru UD 2.5 and back it up, that way you can load either one. My favorite is UD 2.5 with Redmanx theme. Try the one's that catch your eye!

    i see. thanks for the input Mark. i will definitely try out MIUI. i've seen it, and i've actually been attracted by it. but i've also read about bugs and stuff, but you never know til you try it right? i'm actually on LFY right now and i was on UD before. UD was def my fav out of all. now does UD have a theme like that of MIUI? because i've seen guys say they're on said-rom, with a theme on it backed up with a MIUI theme on TOP of the theme for the rom.

    The Sourcery Rom is very much worth checking out and possibly staying with for a while. The rom just recently released on Christmas day exclusively for the O.G. Droid 1. To me it is up there in the top 3 roms made for the Droid 1. Eagle and Gflam added a lot of features/magic that other roms don't have. They added transparent widgets and stock apps. They added a scrollable contacts widget that is killer. They added........ a lot of magic. lol
    One of the neatest things about Sourcery rom is the fact that it has a built in update/theme/fixes manager. When it is time to update the rom you just go into the settings menu.... When you want to try a new theme you just go into the settings menu..... When you have an issue with the rom you contact Eagle and Gflam through there website or IRC chat room and they will send you a fix that you can activate and run right from your settings menu. You don't have to plug into the computer for any of that. I could go on for an hour or so about how cool the rom is but that would hold you guys up from checking it out for yourselfs. Go to there page or website and download the rom. The links are below. If you have any questions then hit me up. I beta tested the rom and whenever I have the time I hang out on there IRC chat site so I should be able to help.

    And as far as the original post. I want to qoute what a lot of people was saying when MIUI first came out.
    "If you want something that looks like an Iphone then go and buy an Iphone!"

    It's a good rom. I just don't like how it trys to be like the Iphone. I had it on one of my phones for less than 24 hours before I did a Nandroid back to The Ultimate Droid. A lot of people like the rom though. The beauty of having a rooted Android phone is that you can try out all of the roms (make backups before hand) and decide for yourself what rom is best. Enjoy.

    take it as it says.... looks like an iphone.... thats all.... d1 with miui and iphones are completely different in many ways.... plus you can change pretty much everything on the rom including the menus and customize to your liking with a very fast theme manager

    i like UD and MIUI but after many many issues with UD recently I switched to MIUI... i'm currently on miui 1.7 which isnt the latest build.... its very fast and everything works as it should.... i'm not going to sit there with my phone for hours figuring why wifi or the market doesnt work so i'm sticking with a build that has been working perfect... as new features come out i'll be looking for the next best STABLE build whether its UD or MIUI.... its all about what you prefer

    You guys make very good points about MIUI that I didn't touch on in my post. I'm not bashing on it at all. I just really like U.D. and Sourcery. If I get a third Droid I might just try MIUI for a longer period of time to see what it can do. Like I said earlier. With all of these choices who am I to say what is best for somebody else. I personaly haven't had any major issues with The Ultimate Droid since U.D. 8 and I think that was because of the kernel that I tried with it. Whatever rom you guys choose will be much better than the stock droid. The rom developers really kick butt. :)

    One-MIUI has very few bugs. Reboots here and there and a few theme manager issues and that's really it. Jamezelle fixes most if it not all most of the time. Second-You can make MIUI look nothing like the iPhone. The settings layout will be the same and you'll have the same looking folders but you can make it look like any other ROM really. Especially if you use an alternate launcher such as LauncherPro. Then it looks just like any other and you still have all the features/goodies. It's amazing. Definitely worth trying out.

    Personally, I like the iPhone shaped icons because I hate how icons for the Droid are different sizes. I used to have very busy screens and I didn't like having a row of icons that varied too much so it gives the phone a nice clean look when they're all the same shape. But, you can have AOSP based icons with it if you don't like that as well as many other icons from different themes. A lot of possibilities.

    I will have to thank Ballmore for the good points on the sourcery rom. i didnt even know that it came out becuase like i said, i was on vacation lol. but i will def try it out. i am currently on MIUI as of yesterday, and so far i sorta like it. i just wish the UI was more fluid and fast without having to put launcher pro in it. and what's also annoying is the weird conflict that the sound settings run into. either you have it in silent, then vibrate, or other settings, kinda annoying. it's hard to explain. but you're right, if you want an iphone-style phone then get an iphone. since most of us have droids, wait next month til iphone4verizon comes out lol
