Flashed another version of MIUI v4 for the Evo 4G

I try to stay update with the world of MIUI, but Ive been so busy lately its hard to do so. Well I stumble across another version of MIUI the other day on XDA but was a bit hesitant to flash since a lot of users could not get it to boot. Well the OP had some trial and error work to fix and uploaded an updated version of the ROM a few hours ago so I took it for a test spin.

First, the about phone:


This is by far the best, smoothest MIUI v4 I’ve tried so far. It booted up fast, I mean less than 2 mins. Took off animated wallpaper and everything is running great.

To tackle OP issues

1. USB Toggle works wonders, thanks.
2. It found my music just fine and loaded it pretty fast. The music sounds more crisp, not sure if thats because of this rom, but it does sound better.

No F/Cs yet, scrolling is smooth. I haven’t tried MMS yet, but this is the major factor for me. Gallery couldnt find all my folders, and I cant hide some of the folders, at least there is no option too. Pinch to see all screens isn’t working for me, unless there is a new way to do? The clock widgets are in a different time, no love for the US? Lol.

I did have one reboot when trying to add my contacts vcard. Once the phone rebooted, loaded up, I added the vcard with no problem and phone is running great throughout the process.

Here is another quick pic,

Great build, fast and can def be a daily beast. Thanks Brownmc77.

EDIT 1: It found all my gallery folders.

EDIT 2: MMS works and Im not using Go SMS either!

Finally running MIUI v4 ICS

Hello followers!

After many weeks of wondering when or if possible, finally a ICS rom has been made for the Evo 4G! Thanks to a new ROM developer Swiperrat at XDA forums, he has released a alpha version. Ive been running this build off and on, so here is a quick review,

Ill start off with the bad:
– Gallery is buggy/laggy, a handful of times it would not load the pics, just the ICS action bar or the screen would be black. It would F/C a few times
– Sound Settings F/Cs
– Immediately had to turn off live wallpaper, made the rom extremely choppy, that’s where a dual core processor is much needed.
– Market was buggy, downloading/updating an app caused a slight screen flicker for a few seconds.
– Themes does not work (I was already aware of that)
– Chinese characters or apps built in. DND and MI-ONE app. You can delete them though.

Now the good:
– The rom is very smooth, especially for a beta like build.
– Scrolling feels great, just like the Gingerbread builds
– ICS MIUI v4 is the most beautiful rom ever. Everything looks high quality, professional. It’s ICS w/ an MIUI (orange) makeover.
– ICS Apps are awesome, scrollable and size changing widgets on MIUI! Gmail is dope, makes the gingerbread version look like *#%.
– WIFI, BT, DATA etc. works.
– Downloaded Chrome Beta, pretty slick app, but couldn’t get any pages to load, strange.
– Stock ICS browser worked though, looks great, and fast.
– Multi tasking card sliding is slick, just like ICS, just slide away to kill an app or page.

Since this is a new rom, your gonna have to re-add all your apps, text etc. I didn’t do any customization (themes is broke). but the stock feels is nice though. Although I flashed back to Swipers 2.6.6 build ( I miss my theme lol) , this ICS build def be a daily driver. It just looks dope, feels great. The few F/Cs I had are not deal breakers so far.

I shall soon have an Athena HD or even something newer (hint hint) theme coming soon, specifically for MIUI v4 ICS.
