MIUI Port Hits Sony Xperia Neo
MIUI has been making its way around the Android world pretty fervently recently and it’s march continues on to the Sony Xperia Neo.
The port is brought to you by XDA Senior Member taaviu, who was kind enough to port it based on the latest MIUI source.
Included is all the features of your typical MIUI ROM along with a few extras, including:
I added AltDrawer, modified theme, some speed, battery tweaks and edited build.prop
I want to keep this Rom clean and fast. Also Stable and no FC.
As well as language packs for the following:
Arabic French German Russian Slovak
Brazilian Greek Hebrew Vietnamese
Czech Hungarian Italian Thai
Danish Korean Persian Turkish
Dutch Polish Portugese
English Slovenian Spanish
That isn’t to say there aren’t a few issues with it. Here’s the list of things that aren’t quite working right yet:
BUGs: FM, HDMI, call recording and few small bugs.
BUT another part ROM is good and fast like hell.
Additionally, the first boot will be a little slow. The solution is dead simple, just reboot and you should be good to go with a smooth, fast experience. However, if you can live with the bugs and want to experience the MIUI goodness, you can find the download links, installation instructions and further information in the original thread.
