MIUI Will Get An Interface “Face Lift” This Week

MIUI is one of the few complete UI changes you can make to your Android device. It’s a ROM that once installed, switches up the entire OS, making it mostly look like iOS in our opinion, but one that has been incredibly popular. It made its first big splash back in September 2010, so we’re excited to see the improvements that the MIUI team will unveil next week to this already clean and completely smooth/working ROM. 

MIUI is available for most devices, and from their site you can see if a developer has ported it to your phone. In most cases, if your phone has root, then you can enjoy some MIUI love. Anyone here using it already? If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a go.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    MIUI has developed way beyond being an iOS imitation.  It is an extremely beautiful, customizable, and fast overhaul of android 2.3.4. The theme engine is incredible.  It updates weekly and is available for many devices. See MIUI.us for more info

  • Manjyot Singh

    If you do try it out make sure you use a kernel that plays nice with MIUI. I loaded it on my OG Droid and it was amazingly slow i guess because i had the cm kernel before it. Can’t wait to check out the new UI.

  • SprottheDestroyer

    Nope. I like what I have. My phone, my choice. Don’t fix what ain’t broke. Looks nice though. Like a more advanced Ios.

    unlike here, MIUI is much more popular in CHINA , IMO most users just cant afford an IPHONE and like to have one alike , and check out the  supported devices   only a few devices can run it
    BTW not that anybady care MIUI will launch a cellphone next month  designed by motorola

      While it is true that they are making a device, it has not been confirmed to be designed by Motorola. That is only rumor.

    i’ve been using MIUI for a couple of months now and it’s hand down one of the best roms out the.. its beautiful and easy to use.. they also have a large support group and massive customization options.. they’re also consistent with their upgrades and bugs (if any) doesn’t last long. anyone hating on it beacause it “resembles” IOS is just as bad as those dumb fanboys

    arguably, MIUI did resemble iphone originally..and to some extent there are some little similarities here and there with the menu settings screen and some icon similarities. But now, MIUI is full fledged, especially with the amount of theming the community has done.. Their goal is ultimate simplicity…It’s amazing that I can theme for a device and have NO conversion issues whatsoever for another device.  Theming fonts, messaging, notifcations, lockscreen..its awesome. And its a simple hit of a button.  No porting of system files or The new lockscreen mods are awesome as well.  The notification pulldown bar is stacked the right away..holding them down accesses the settings menu for that item. 

    I have the droid incredible, and i love this rom. I am definitely excited for Sense 3.0, but this rom does a whole lot more without bogging down the device!

  • http://twitter.com/GRZLA Grizzly Atoms

    To anyone knocking this, you obviously haven’t tried the rom out. The only thing that is iphonish about this rom is that the launcher and icons(on the larger side.) IMO, this is one of the best roms available that offers something different. Built in theme system where you have the option to download new themes within the application!

    I love me some deadstock ASOP Gingerbread, but I also enjoy customizing my phone. MIUI is top dog for me.

    • George Fungus

      well hopefully this rom you cosndier “the best” is also in english. since most if not all android users speak english. and i didnt see much english in those screen shots.

        “most if not all android users speak english” . . .
        What? Really? What do you base this on? Considering the number of apps in the market written in Chinese, I’d have to say disagree…

  • http://profiles.google.com/bzchickin Aaron Verhoeven

    I have been VERY impressed with MIUI so far, and I am disappointed in the hate that it’s received. I feel that in it’s resemblance of the iPh*ne, it’s gotten hatred, and that’s very sad. It’s not how something looks, but how it works, and I feel it’s simply a MUCH more detailed, and polished version of Android. I with that the Google android team had done some of the things that MIUI has done. Examples are… rethought popup menus, that, rather than popping up, they slide down, in a very smooth and clean fashion. The lock screen, and the entire system is also theme-able, and so to say it looks like the iPh*ne, is simply wrong. It had MANY looks, and almost all of them work very well.

    Been running MIUI for about 6 months now using LauncherProPlus.  Looks nothing like iOS.  I run it because the ROM is stable and quick.  Menus are i$hone like, but that’s about it.

    i had MIUI in my OGDroid. when i bought a DInc a few months back i decided to stick with OMGB, and was very happy for months. But when i saw the improvements on the new releases, i decided to give it a try and boy was i impressed. Very nice work indeed.

    I haven’t used MIUI in about 8 months, so I’ll probably give this another shot. Let us know when the new version is out.

  • Mkemvp32

    Miui in no way makes your device less functional or desirable.. It actually enhances the phone by giving it much more functionality and personalization options than other roms out. there. I’ve run Bugless, Project Elite, Liquid, Ultimate Droid, Saphire, …. all of which are great…but they all look the same. Just color changes. Miui is a whole other creature…..beautiful, sleek, unique, inviting… I can tell you that my OG Droid has never looked better. It’s like a new phone.

    I love MIUI, can’t wait for this weeks update.  It looks so much better then stock android…I don’t know how anyone could hate on it, if you have actually tried it in on your phone!

  • Travis Erickson

    I just looked at all the screenshots of this rom. and a few seconds later I had to pick up my phone, unlock it with one of my custom lock screens and appreciate the gingerbread rom with version 2.3.4 and HTC sense 3.0 on my 4g thunderbolt. Just seeing those pics makes me appreciate how advance my rom is even more.

    • Mkemvp32

      Are you rooted? cause if you’re not….you don’t have a rom on your phone. Gingerbread is an OS, not a rom

      • Guest

        Actually, if you knew anything you would realize that ROM= Read only memory.  Every phone comes with a ‘ROM’ installed, otherwise you wouldn’t have any software on there it would just be a brick.

        • Mkemvp32

          I’m not attempting to give a textbook definition of what ROM means. From the comments, I read I could perceive that the use of “ROM” in this case was being used as what the rooted community commonly refers to when they ask, what “ROM” are you running? Like the ones I listed in previous posts. Not the obvious Read Only Memory that comes with every phone. Mr. Sanchez’s comments seemed to imply that he felt he was running a “ROM” other than his onboard “ROM”, hence my question, “are you rooted?” I would like to encourage you to have some respect when replying to others. I guarantee you my friend, that if we were face to face…. you would not have started your comment the way you did.

            Your question, in the end, was pointless though. HTC Thunderbolt, in an out of the box state, is still running Froyo with Sense 2.0. A Thunderbolt running Gingerbread (2.3.4) with Sense 3.0 would have to be rooted and running a custom ROM.

    • tanknspank

      The features of MIUI runs laps around every other rom out, even it’s custom lockscreens such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QZILW67QXU&feature=player_embedded. Can you create your own lockscreen for sense?

  • tanknspank

    Still no love for the Thunderbolt :(

    And I bet those who claim iPhone clone have never used it. I’d challenge you to find another AOSP rom with as much valuable functionality added to the rom. Once you use it, the last thing on your mind is how it is slightly similar to iOS.

    • http://twitter.com/eatmode4life Ray Mendoza

      I have read a few tweets saying that the MIUI team in China will not support the Thunderbolt (or any LTE device) as it does not work in their country. I could be misreading those though.

      • tanknspank

        MIUI doesn’t really support any devices in America, but rather devs over here port it to our devices from other similar devices that they do support. The ril is just really difficult to port into MIUI, even more so when MIUI China declined to help.

  • GeeDee82

    I know a lot people who are into rooting and ROMing their android phones, but I’ve never met anyone who used this.  You might as well just buy an iphone.

    • tanknspank

      Well, my brother and his friend in our neighborhood both run it. I run it on my spare Droid. I don’t think any of us are complaining about it supposedly looking like an iPhone. 

      • GeeDee82

        OK Good to know.  I’m sure it runs smooth and has some nice features, I just don’t like the UI, it does have some sick looking themes though.  I would give it a try if my current phone didn’t have an effing encrypted bootloader.  I still prefer cyanogen and AOSP roms though.

        • tanknspank

          Pr0tip: MIUI is an AOSP rom. ;) It even has a base of Cyanogenmod iirc.

          But I agree. It does some drastic changes and some people could easily be put off by that. Still, the whole iPhone deal is pointless.

        You know… maybe before you all bash him think about why he won’t try it.

        I personally won’t try it because there is an MMS bug and according to MagicMan7 ” If you NEED video mms, DON’T USE THIS ROM.”

        Therefore I’m not gong to use this ROM.  Cause I use Video MMS.  

        SO I guess that makes me a Baby according to Trey and a Troll to Tank.

        I can understand pride in someone who does ROMing; but seriously grow the hell up.  Not everyone is going to want to use your ROM.

          I dont use Sense either. I started running SPB Shell 3d home replacement the day i got my Tbolt also since its alot faster then Sense. but with Sense 3.0 you can still use one of the custom lock screens on other home replacements. Couldn’t do that with previous versions of Sense.

      I agree.  As an early adopter, it’s amazing to see how much this rom has evolved.  It is truly like no other rom out there.  Theming is a breeze as is personalizing your device, new lockscreens are taking the android world by storm, don’t like the stock iOS look a like launcher?  Run launcherpro over it.  People are so quick to judge because of it’s iOS looks.  Just try it.  Explore miuiandroid.com.  What do you have to lose?  Just nandroid and give it a shot.

        Because it is A LOT of work.  CVPS put so much time into the 2nd int and the Cyanogen ROM and I doubt other devs are willing to do the same for an out of date phone.  I have a DX as well and it is just more motivation to never buy a locked down phone again.

  • Jack Sanchez

    why would anyone want their android phone to work like an Iphone? it’s like making your playstation 3 function like a playstation 2. or an xbox 360 to function like the first xbox. no one wants that from the more advanced device.

    • TripEm

      I would have gone with making an XBox 360 function like a Playstation 3.

      But anyway, it really just looks like iOS, which honestly isn’t all that bad if that is what you are looking for. However, if you are looking for options, you have Android to give it to you. And here is another option.

      • Jack Sanchez

        2 different systems. xbox 360 and playstation 3 are completely different in so  many ways. it wouldn’t even make sense to compare xbox 360 and playstation 3. i figured comparing ps3 to ps2 and xbox 360 to xbox made more sense and sounded alot smarter

        • http://twitter.com/Almighty_Reptar Travis Erickson

           And comparing Android and iOS is any different than an xbox and a playstation? he was simply stating superiority. and your argument of them being so completely different makes no sense, android and iOS are completely different as well. As commissioner im gonna have to give the win to TripEm

          • Jack Sanchez

            android and iOS are not that different. they are both smartphones. they both have their own app stores and they both have text messaging abilities. they even sort of look the same with having apps on the homescreen and swiping left to right to switch between pages. they both have web browsers and music players. there are even a few iphone themes on android and android themes on ios (if you jailbreak). the only difference is that android can do alot more. with xbox 360 and ps3 the entire OS looks completely different. the setup of everything is different between ps3 and xbox 360. the only thing xbox 360 and ps3 have in common is that they can both play music, movies, and games. but every other thing is completely different between the 2 systems. so you may want to reconsider that “win” you gave to TripEm. lol

          • GotSka81

            If you could elaborate, I’d like to know what’s completely different about the two?  Sure, the hardware specs are way off, but other than that they both do essentially the same thing.  Win is granted to TripEm.  umad bro?

          • Jack Sanchez

            I’ve used a playstation  and an xbox 360. the setup of every icon is different. like i already said the only thing similar is that they can both play games, music, and movies. but getting to the games, music, and movies options are completely different between ps3 and xbox 360. if you ever used both systems you would understand. xbox 360 doesn’t even have a web browser or Playstation Home. ps3 does. thats 2 differences. ps3 doesn’t have facebook. xbox 360 has facebook. if you want to watch movies or listen to music on ps3 its all on the main screen along with everything else. if you want to watch movies or listen to music on xbox 360 you have to select “music” or “movies” and it will open a new screen where everything is.xbox 360 has the ability to listen to music during the game. ps3 doesnt have that ability yet. even the controllers are different between ps3 and xbox 360. i remember a new android phone getting sued recently by apple for looking too much like an iphone. and some of the android phones even look like an iphone on the outside. but not enough to get sued by apple. Maybe you should reconsider that “win” also. still trying to figure out what the point of granting “wins” over something like this even is

            chill ladies…. it was a joke

          • Jack Sanchez

            i know. i just wanted to point out that comparing an xbox 360 and a playstation 3 makes no sense if they are different in so many ways. but comparing an iphone to an android phone makes more sense since they have alot more in common. even though android is so much better the iphone in every way.

          • Jack Sanchez

            that doesn’t even make sense. but if you want to go that way then i guess you can compare an iphone to a desk. or an android phone to a chair. i mean we can hold them all and they all fall victim to gravity. according to you. right? Thats true but you see the flaw in the logic behind your theory?

            exactly
             

          • Jack Sanchez

            well lets see. Travis said “if we want to get way down to it…. we can hold them both and they both fall victim to gravity” so he basically compared an iphone and android since if you drop both of them they fall due to gravity. but if you hole a chair or desk or any object they all fall. so according to travis does that ment you can compare an android phone to a chair? since they both “fall victim to gravity”.

            yea. i agree with you on that. juct couldnt figure out why you even started to reply to me since i was never talking to you. and idk why your name was showing up for my replies

            in essence you contradicted your self because what you are arguing that comparing xbox to playstation is not a good comparison. And in your previous comment ” xbox 360 and ps3 have in common is that they can both play music, movies, and games.” Really thats their main purposes and sony and microsoft implement tem in very different ways but again that is the main functions of the systems. In reality the main purpose is video games but they throw all that other crap in there so we are more likely to buy one or the other. On the notion that android and iphone are almost the same, you have a point to a certain degree. But until you get into the deeper parts of android and iphone then its like your saying about the differences of android and iphone. So win still goes Trip em. And really if your going to go into the whole hardware control thing like you mentioned then honestly again like your previous argument the controllers might be different per say but they ultimately have one purpose which is to control the game your playing just implemented a little differently. I mean come on PS3 has r1 r2 l1 l2  Xbox has a right bumber and trigger left bumber and trigger. I mean come on really that different?! Both sticks can be pushed down again their is 2 joy sticks on both. There is a Ps3 button and a Xbox button conviently located somewhere around the middle of the controller. Anyways i wont go on. Acutally its pretty funny how me and all these other individuals made such a big deal about that one comment. Oh and another thing if you want to talk about differences hardware wise. All android phones have atleast 4 buttons on the bottom most of them are capacitive some are hardware but again 4 buttons. Iphone has one button that serves one funtion. Android has sd card slot. Iphone does not. Android has removable battery. Iphone does not. Shall i go on? And ill probably bashed as that is mostly hardware but my point still stands

            yea maybe like 5-10 years ago the main purpose of a video game system was to play games and the main purpose of a cell phone was to make phone calls. that was back when the best game systems were playstation 1 and xbox and the only options were to play a game or watch a movie or listen to music with a cd. and when cell phones were all flip phones with no keyboard. but now its 2011. now the game systems have options to play the game, watch a dvd movie, watch movies saved on the system, listen to music on a cd or saved to the system, save pics to the system, browse the internet, browse an online game store where u can download games, movies, music, or themes. and even use facebook on the game system. I have about 15 ps3 games and only use like 1 or 2 of them alot and use the others every once in a while. but i barely use those 2 games anymore. my ps3 is always on but i barely use those games since i have movies and music saved on my ps3 and netflix. maybe you will realize what year it is and that game systems are used for alot more then just games. and remember those flip phones with no keyboard? now they have smartphones with touch screen keyboard, built in app stores, and tons of games and other apps. cell phones arent just used for calling anymore even though thats still its main purpose. yes i said ps3 and xbox can both play music, movies, and games. those rtheir only similarities. but you still can’t compare the 2 systems since they both have alot more differences then similarities. the controllers look, feel, and are shaped different. xbox 360 has facebook but ps3 doesnt. ps3 is a bluray player but xbox isnt. yes some of the features are different but the entire OS for the ps3 and xbox 360 are completely different. the icons are all setup completely differently. and thats what i said was different.You mentoned all the physical differences like the removeable battery and sd card slot on android that iphones doesn’t have. i wasn’t talking about that. i was talking about once you turn on the android phone and iphone they look the same in alot of ways.ps3 and xbox 360 look different in so many ways physically and once you turn them on they still look different in so many ways. i wonder if you even read my first comment. and this is Jack Sanchez. If it says its Travis idk why.

          • Jack Sanchez

            I’ve used a playstation  and an xbox 360. the setup of every icon is different. like i already said the only thing similar is that they can both play games, music, and movies. but getting to the games, music, and movies options are completely different between ps3 and xbox 360. if you ever used both systems you would understand. xbox 360 doesn’t even have a web browser or Playstation Home. ps3 does. thats 2 differences. ps3 doesn’t have facebook. xbox 360 has facebook. if you want to watch movies or listen to music on ps3 its all on the main screen along with everything else. if you want to watch movies or listen to music on xbox 360 you have to select “music” or “movies” and it will open a new screen where everything is.xbox 360 has the ability to listen to music during the game. ps3 doesnt have that ability yet. even the controllers are different between ps3 and xbox 360. i remember a new android phone getting sued recently by apple for looking too much like an iphone. and some of the android phones even look like an iphone on the outside. but not enough to get sued by apple. Maybe you should reconsider that “win” also. still trying to figure out what the point of granting “wins” over something like this even is

          Am i the only one that thinks the PS3 UI completely destroys XBOX UI?

          I have both systems but PS3 Interface is beautiful, Xbox is like.. windows98 lol

      Its like iOS5 pretty much except it has Widgets. Since iOS went and copied our notification pulldown.

      • Jack Sanchez

        o well its good to know that even our iphone roms are more advanced then the Iphone OS. lol

        • TripEm

          Well yea I mean Android rules.

    • Mkemvp32

      Jack, have you ever used Miui? It may SEEM to resemble iOS but from someone who actually uses Miui, let me say that this is much better, not only with the look of it, but also the functionality. It’s totally customizable, mixing themes….etc. There are so many options and possibilities. Miui does not work like an iphone, the only similarity would be the lack of an app drawer. That’s it. Miui ROCKS!

      • Jack Sanchez

        no i never used it. but before even reading the article i looked at the pics and first thing i thought of was a much more advanced version of an Iphone with widgets. I still prefer my gingerbread rom running 2.3.4 on my thunderbolt

      There is a trade off running different hardware with similar OS’s…

      This is why the iPhone iPwns many phones out there despite the fact it uses older tech which
      allows Apple to reap a higher net profit than *

      I don’t mind MIUI nor Samsung for making software that mimics anothers’ OS (like Apple)
      I didn’t buy my Droid Charge for Touchwiz.

    Are there themes? Im have ApeX right now but I enjoy themeing my device

    Will it look less like an iPhone?

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Not likely. That’s why it is popular. People like zebras because they have stripes. Take away the stripes and then they’re just weird looking horses. No one wants that…haha

        Lame. I like some of the tweaks of MIUI just not the iPhone look.

      • Malonzo85

        take away the black stripes or the white stripes?

        • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

          Either or I suppose. :)

    I*phone clone. No thanks.

    • http://twitter.com/TreyMotes Trey Motes

      have you even installed it? It is FAR from a clone. Do you even SEE the screenshots above?

      • Anonymous

        All it takes to be an iPhone clone is square icons.  It doesn’t matter if MIUI has widgets, a different (far more useful than even the default Android) lockscreen, and most of the other features that set Android apart from the iPhone.
