Universal MIUI Theme Editor

One of the biggest appeals of Android---aside from it being open source---is the ability to customize every aspect to get a completely individual and unique experience. Users and developers alike have used countless tools, ROMs, themes, modifications, and whatever else they can get their hands to customize their Android experience. MIUI users running Windows now have another tool, with which to customize Android. XDA Forum Member Clever_Name_Here has released a PC based tool that will allow the average user to...

DianXin OS; A Unique Android-Based Chinese OS

There is a new ROM that's looking to make that very exclusive "all phones must have it" list. Say hello to DianXin OS, or DX OS as it's being referred to. As XDA Senior Member qtwrk will tell you: i know you guys may think it looks like MIUI , but i asure you it's totally different ROM nor MIUI-based modification. As with MIUI, it's based in Asia, so the ROMs available to try currently still have some translation to...

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...

MIUI Makes Its Way to the Kindle Fire

We all knew it would be happening soon, as the AOSP ROMs are essentials for most new phones and tablets and the Amazon Kindle Fire is the latest and greatest device that MIUI calls home and the development of the Amazon Kindle Fire remains on fire (bad pun ftw!). XDA Senior Member leech2082 released the port which, for a first release, has a surprisingly low number of things not working in comparison to most ports that make first appearances on...

Samsung Galaxy SL i9003 Receives MIUI Port Based on CM7

In the spirit of the now passed holiday, XDA Senior Member fuss132 has brought the Samsung Galaxy SL i9003 a little post-Christmas magic in the form of a MIUI port. The port is working pretty well, with a very short list of things not working so far and it's still, as fuss132 puts it, like 70% CM7 and 30% MIUI. So it's not a pure MIUI release just yet and it is still in the testing stage. If you happen...

MIUI Theme Bonanza!

MIUI is something that I don't feel gets enough attention here on XDA. As an MIUI user, as of yesterday, I now understand what our own Chad Hughes of XDA TV meant when he said "it's as close as it comes to an OS replacement". Disregarding the speed and stability of this type of ROM, something fun to do with it is to play with the theme engine, much like Cyanogen Mod's. XDA member krunalkp has put together a fantastic thread...
