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.
Most of the device functions and OS highlights are operational, though the lockscreen and MIUI launcher are currently no-shows. In the words of the developers:
MIUI – Redefining android, on SG3
ok so if you already didnt know GreenMods are porting MIUI ROM to SG3! it will be based on android 2.3 and it will simply be awesome!!!
heres a list of what is done and who is porting/helping
-Theme is almost done [pauri]
-some apps [jazux]
-launcher [akash.gpta and anonymous]
-lockscreen [no porters yet]
Continue on to the original thread to get a taste of MIUI on your Galaxy 3. As with any ROM installation, you would be wise to do a full Nandroid backup prior to beginning the installation.
