DROIDX and DROID2 Finally Receive MIUI Ports


You all know MIUI by now, don’t you?  This would be one of the few ROMs that actually gives you a completely new user experience.  We released the port of the new overhaul last week for the original DROID, but today, it’s all about the DROIDX and DROID2.  This has been one of those ROMs that wouldn’t make its way onto either device because of its stingy bootloader.  Well, thanks to our boy @cvpcs who figured out his 2nd-init magic for some CM7 goodness, we now have MIUI.  Huge props to the MIUI team (Frameworks43) for getting this out to us.  

Download:  DROIDX | DROID2


1.  Drop on .zip on SD card.
2.  Boot into recovery and make a backup.
3.  Wipe data/factory reset.
4.  Load up MIUI.
5.  Enjoy!

Full support can be found at these two RootzWiki threads:  DROIDX | DROID2

Cheers BMc!

    What did hot lingerie have to say? He laughed her insecurities away sexy dresses

    for sale, for he was always excited to return corset

    and skirt to the comfortable lap of his sexy

    christmas costume! The ever bubbly Mitchell who had to squeeze

    herself into plus size lace leggings even on her wedding

    day had never felt so insecure until Henry landed this job. You could

    include a sexy game dress that you wrote, which contains words that

    have been well sexy short skirts thought of.

    Anyone get the Camera to work on Droid 2? I’ve checked the forums and some people say they have a work around but no one puts what it is or how to do it. I need my camera to work. It’s the one thing making me think about leaving this rom.

    • SFC Airborne51

      I found a patch that was deleted from Rom Manager but it fixed my camera and camcorder so I’m good now. My contacts are the only thing that seems screwed up now. Other than that I love this ROM and how fast and responsive it is.

  • Tayyab 0307

    very nice post.

  • Hmmmmmm…curious! 

  • sadly when i do this on my droid x it says aborted, then i look that CM7 isnt out for the droid x so maybe thats why…any ideas anyone?

    • jthai

      CM7 is out but you need to SBF back to Froyo first as CM7, and MIUI, use the Froyo kernel

  • JL

    loaded this last night….ran Quadrant and was blown away with the results. After 3 consecutive runs, my DX topped out at 2400+!!!!! that’s just loading this ROM as is (downloaded from mini.us) without any cpu tweaks, just bone stock as is at 1GHz….. battery life appears to have taken a minor hit, default lock screen can be a bit laggy at times, but overall a killer ROM!!!

  • Boogogee

    If I’m running 2.3 on my rooted DX is all hope lost?  Can I go back to 2.2 and flash MIUI?

    • jthai

      Nah you can SBF back to Froyo first then you can install

  • Djflan

    Love this rom, makes Android beautiful. Yes…it is reminiscent of an iphone, but come on guys….Apple was not the first company to use icons on a home screen. Who really cares anyway….. The UI is wonderful. The system menus really shine on this one, compare it to the stock and it blows them out of the water. 

    Google should hire these guys to do the UI.

  • Hugebeefinjection

    Did not like it. Not smooth. I like some of the blur apps-HDMI out, Panorama stich, etc. There isn’t always a better alternative on the market.

  • Kyfry85

    So I cant use this with my rooted gingerbread DX?

    • DBK

      You would have to sbf back to froyo first.

  • law

    Does this support Droid 2 global?

      No it doesn’t.

  • I paid $32.69 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Sony laptop for $94.87 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 $51.77 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

  • Thinking about running this but havent been rooted for some time now, dont feel like loosing all my data and such and starting from scratch. looks good though

      Titanium Backup to backup your apps. Clockworkmod to backup your system. You won’t lose anything.  🙂

      • Lakerzz

        After flashing this. You can restore the app with Titanium, but they say not restore data, because it will cause force closing issues.

        • DBK

          Yeah I learned that the hard way.  🙂

  • joanthan

    a little confused about something….is this the new MIUI with the new “facelift” that was released a little bit ago for the DROID? or is it the older MIUI?

    • DBK

      This is a newer version. MIUI 1.7.22.

  • DBK

    Been running it on my D2 for the last 24 hours. Some minor problems, but overall awesome, as always. Going to throw on ADW Launcher now.  🙂

  • Brewbake

    Ive got a droid 2 global…. just installed and now cant seem to get it out of airplane mode… everytime i click it off, it goes straight back.  I cant make calls, no service, no nothing.  Any suggestions?

  • Anonymous

    Sure wish we’d get some love for our Tbolts. My Incredible gets amazing battery life on this.

  • Restless

    Might want to check the Forums and see how many problems they are having with this, Sure it’s pretty but..

    • DroidzFX

      you need to get some rest cause Im not sure what issues you are talking about

  • I am just commenting to make you understand of the perfect encounter our daughter went through studying your web site. She picked up plenty of things, most notably what it’s like to have a wonderful giving nature to have the rest completely grasp specified tricky things. You actually did more than her expected results. Thanks for coming up with those insightful, trustworthy, edifying not to mention fun guidance on the topic to Emily.

    I have tried MIUI for the DX and it is nice, but I prefer something more AOSP based.  I think I may try to play with MIUI more tomorrow though and try to customize it some more.  

  • Crgsmal

    ii dont get why people are complaining.. if you dont like it move on. im glad they ported it.
    it was refreshing to reboot into a new rom and not find a ton of bloatware installed,!

  • Stangcf2

    This is a cool rom. No video player works for me. Cant change bootanimation with tool in the rom. I do like the lay out.

  • lupaphiasco

    Love it on my D2  except for the fact the camera, camcorder and youtube dont work

  • MJZ

    been running for a few hours now. I’ve loved MIUI since my OG Droid days and it does not disappoint now. 
    Only issues are:
    Cannot find Bank of America or My Verizon apps on the market. 

  • DBK

    Put it on my Incredible and loved it. Going to put it on my D2 now!!!!  🙂

  • been watching alot of videos about miui and some are in Chinese , is this one all english?

    • yep

    • Heymondt20000

      yes it is. they ported it over with english translations

  • George Boyd85

    does anyone know if we can flash a gb update on top of this rom? I know you have to sbf back to froyo to load it, but can we then update either ota or otherwise to gb?

    • Sketch2000

      It IS gb, just with a froyo kernal

    I installed this on my backup DX… No problems so far, very smooth transitions. having a hard time getting used to the fact the settings are completely rearranged. Makes downloading themes a breeze. I installed an i*hone theme just for kicks… Been parading it around at the office telling people its a hybrid XD

  • RolandK21484

    Anyone know how to get the Droid X BlurCamera.Apk on to this MIUI rom? Everything is awesome, but I don’t like the old Droid Camera that comes with it. If I could fix this I would never use anything else. This is by far most the best rom out there. Can any one help with this? I would really appreciate it. Thanks

    • Rishi

      Roland, you can’t…if you look through the rootzwiki forums, you’ll see that there is a download for the MIUI themed app, see if you like that.  no widescreen though. 🙁

  • R Ortiz0620

    ok I know this is probably a stupid post and I apologize in advance. But what do I need to do to my droid x to get MIUI on here 🙂

    sorry for the dumb question 

    • jthai

      Are you on Gingerbread rooted or otherwise?

    • KingJames713

      ROOT ROOT ROOT ROOT ROOT! thennnn FLASH FLASH FLASH FLASH FLASH! Just kidding. You must root, then back up, then wipe, the flash. I won’t go into detail but there is so much information online on this whole process. It is scary. You might think you lost your phone but just don’t give up. Good luck!

  • I ended up downloading this for my Dinc2, to see if it fixes my audio issue with CM7; It seems my native mic turns off when headphones/AUX are plugged in since I rooted. This never happened with my OG, so hopefully MIUI doesn’t have the issue. Otherwise….I don’t see the need for this personally

  • Corbin Lissabet

    I just sbfed back to .340 and am having trouble installing. I boot into clockwork recovery and clear data factory reset. When I install the zip it aborts and i get a message:

    assert failed: run program(“/tmp/check_kernal”)
    == 0
    E:Error in /sdcard/MIUI.us_shadow_1.7.22_Eng_Deo_ZipA_ Signed_Framework43.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    • Mygolazo

      same shit,, big problem,,what to do now?

      • Corbin Lissabet

        No idea man! I posted the same question over at rootzwiki. If I get a response I’ll let you know

        • Mygolazo

          I just sbfed back to .340 and no trouble, just start everything back again, and without backup, what a shame , everything stared when i just turned the DX off and get the battery out, and the M logo never move away…and bla bla bla, just use the RSD LITE v4.8 Multi-flash/ multi-flex tool..keep it in touch

          • Corbin Lissabet

            Just did the same and now its running great! Love this rom

    • DBK

      How come your’s says “shadow” in the file name? Mine doesn’t.

      fyi – I was able to install mine with no problems.

  • Downloading this right now… Love CM7 but I’m going to try out my other options.

  • Anonymous

    So if this is built off of cm4dx does this mean it has all the bugs as well?

  • Matt

    Hey i accidently somehow removed FILE EXPLORER. how do i get it back!?
