Even before getting interested in the Chinese smartphone market, I came across MIUI ever so often (I had an LG Optimus One) and wasn’t sure what the fuss was all about. This is how popular the MIUI ROM was, almost 2 years back. You can only imagine how much more popular the ROM has become! Many new people get introduced to MIUI each day, and there are a lot of questions asked about the included apps and features.
Some weeks ago our sister site GizChina.it launched a poll to decide which version of the new GizRom should be launched for the Zopo ZP980, ZP990, C2 and C3 first. The winner was MIUI V5 and as promised here it is ready to download and install!
Well known developers from around the world including Chainfire, Xplodwild and Dees_Troy have come together to build another aftermarket ROM (or custom ROM) which aims to make the Android operating system more open and user-friendly – the OmniROM.
Koushik Dutta aka “Koush”, a part of the CyanogenMod team and the creator of various 3rd party tools and hacks like the ClockWork Mod recovery and ROM Manager, recently showcased his progress with AirPlay mirroring on Android.
