MIUI, one of our all-time favorite ROMs, was updated this weekend to Jelly Bean and then released for a couple of our favorite devices of all time. The Galaxy Nexus (both LTE and GSM) and Nexus 7 each received a build that apparently has little to no issues or bugs. The changelog itself is massive, however, it doesn’t dive into many new features per se. The upgrade from ICS to JB appears to be more of a bug fixer than anything.
1. Download the ROM to your device’s internal storage.
2. Reboot into recovery and create a backup.
3. Wipe data and cache.
4. Choose the .zip file through recovery and flash it.
*Thoughts – It’s definitely still MIUI, just as you have grown to expect. Google Now is included since it’s Jelly Bean. I’ve noticed a notification bar bug already, along with a lengthy drop from 4G to 3G. Overall, the build is really polished and looks stellar, but it’ll take some time before I can tell if it’s incredibly stable or not.
