T-Mobile LG G2x Receives MIUI Port
It’s always good news when a device gets MIUI. Along with CyanogenMod, it’s among the most popular ROMs out there and a “must have” for pretty much any Android device.
The Chinese ROM has found it’s newest home under the hood of the T-Mobile LG G2x thanks to XDA Junior Member stormageddon, who was kind enough to port it over from the LG Optimus 2X.
The features are pretty standard for an MIUI ROM and include a couple others:
*All features of Official MIUI
*Wi-Fi Calling (Yes it works!)
*Zipalign and Permission scrips by Team Kang
*Trinity Kernel by morfic
There is also a 2nd build with a different kernel in case you’re more into overclocking your CPU than you are saving on battery life so whichever fits your need better is available to you.
As with any ROM there is a few known issues. With this ROM there is a surprisingly low amount, just a few users getting an “invalid SIM” message when trying to use WiFi calling after a reboot. Nothing too bad and stormageddon has even taken the liberty to post patches that fix an annoying theming bug should anyone get it. Isn’t that just super nice of him?
So if you’re aching for some MIUI love, then you can head on over to the original thread for all the change log, shout outs, download links and discussion goodness. You can never go wrong running MIUI.

At I/O 2015, Google tackled the information problem in mobile once more, this time through pictures: “how incredible is it that we all have a camera in our pockets at any moment? (...)
