Samsung Galaxy S II Receives Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich MIUI ROM


Yes, you are reading that right. Apparently those crafty developers over on XDA have done it again, this time they’ve managed to combine fan-favorite ROM, MIUI with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This MIUI ROM in particular takes the merged ICS framework from GalnetMIUI 1.11.2 and a pinch of CM7 for the AT&T Galaxy S II and presto! An almost fully functional MIUI Android 4.0 ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T.

If you’re hoping to see some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich UI elements keep in mind this is still very much MIUI. While this is technically a ROM with the Android 4.0 firmware, all the UI and core apps are still MIUI. This actually gives you a good idea of what to expect once other OEM’s get their hands on the ICS source and theme it up with their own special UI’s. But for now just bask in the ambience or if you have a rooted AT&T Galaxy S II… get to flashing!

Thanks, Dima!

  1. Chris Chavezzzzz!

  2. Someone should give me a Galaxy S II

  3. Would this work on an International Galaxy S II? 

  4. Please stop the skinning.

    1. Why do you say that?  Just curious.

      1. I don’t really see the excitement in MIUI roms anyways.

        1. I’m a fan of clean.  MIUI provides this.  I am not saying that its the best ROM out there but you have to admit they put together a good package.  …and before a CM7 fan starts hating and saying they steal the code …if it is true, its a bummer they dont give credit but we don’t know for sure.

          …but, I personally like a lot of what MIUI design team does.. its like iPhone, yes.. but with Android as the backbone …well enough said.

          I say continue skinning.  Without skinning everything would look the same..and well..that would just suck.  IMO.

          1. I’m not knocking it. I just don’t see why everyone likes it so much. If I wanted my phone to look like an iPhone then I would get an iPhone. But I guess as you said, that’s the beauty of android. You can change your phone to look however you want. Happy Rom and theme swapping everyone.

          2. But then you’d get stuck not only with a phone that looks like an iPhone, but one that functions like an iPhone.

            I don’t get an android device because it looks different than an iPhone, but because of its capabilities. Aesthetically, iPhone does at least one thing very well: uniformity. MIUI provides this without dropping you to the functionality of an iPhone.

          3. I love miui and my phone looks nothing like an iPhone. Again, the beauty of miui is that you can make it look however you want. The themes are incredible. If you think miui= iPhone then you don’t know miui.

    2. Maybe iPhone is for you?

      1. Maybe Nexus for me? Iphail is shit..

    3. especially one that mimics the ios

    4. MIUI isn’t a skin perse, it’s also a firmware alternative (not quite like CM but in that vein).

  5. Everyone needs to learn ROM. This is the reason why. 

  6. flop its only 2.3.7 not an icecream sandwich

  7. It’s only 2.3.7 not icecream sandwich

    1. It has the 4.0 frame work with a CM7 kernel. It is ICS. 

      1. what exactly does ‘framework’ mean here? Does it support h/w acceleration?

      2. Most likely no. On my guess, I’d say the code was optimized by changing the way the registers are used. Also the UI is probably running at a lower bit rate which means you’ll
        have lower visual quality though its not really noticeable for many
        people. I’d need to have two phones to compare in real time and take a look at the code myself to see what it does to confirm. As of now, I highly doubt this is ICS.

  8. This looks like a jail-broken iPhone with a familiar Winterboard theme..

  9. What significance does having the Android 4.0 framework bear? Like, what makes it different from a Gingerbread ROM if the Gapps are all Gingerbread versions anyway? Does this allow you to install ICS apps? I’m just confused as to the meaning of this.


    1. nope… parsing errors still prevail while trying to install apks

  10. I think I’ll pass IMO Miui is the ugliest rom on Android.
