Meizu MX’s Flyme OS Ported to the AT&T Galaxy S II
When the Meizu MX was first released, many talked about its unique FlymeOS. It’s an OEM skin similar to Samsung’s TouchWiz and HTC’s Sense. It has several fun features and a very nice looking interface. Unfortunately, it was only available on the Meizu MX. It has now been ported to the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II.
XDA Senior Member estabien has begun porting Flyme OS to the AT&T Galaxy S II. It’s a slow process, as it usually is when porting OEM skinned ROMs. There are a few things working, but many bugs as well. Here’s the list of things working and not working:
What doesn’t work:
Cannot hang up on call (Have to reboot in order to hang up)
Some system settings FC
Doesn’t read SD card
Music Player doesn’t display music
Please report if anything else doesn’t work!
The essentials (data, signal, SMS) do work, but there are a lot of things that still don’t. So this likely won’t be anyone’s daily driver right now. It’ll definitely be fun to test. But for many, it may be best to wait a few more updates for some of the bugs to get squashed.
If this looks like something you’d like to try out, go to the original thread.
