Team GreenMods Brings MIUI to the Samsung Galaxy 3
Not too long ago, we brought you news that Samsung Galaxy 5 had received a CyanogenMod 7 port, effectively extending its life just a little further. Now, the closely related Galaxy 3 has received a MIUI port, care of some crafty work by XDA forum member jazux and the rest of the GreenMods team. While the device is marginally faster and more capable than the aforementioned Galaxy 5, it’s still quite a long way from being a high-end device.
