Galaxy S MIUI ROM Installation Guide



Installing MIUI was one of the most painful jobs ever, earlier. But thankfully, the punishment is over and now one can install it pretty easily.

THIS POST IS BEING UPDATED TO GET YOU THE LATEST AND EASIEST METHOD TO INSTALL THE MIUI ROM ON GALAXY S i9000. So, follow this new method only and forget everything else that was mentioned here earlier here (which is still lying below).

[error]This guide is applicable only for Samsung’s Galaxy S international version (GT-i9000). Check your phone’s version in Settings – About Phone. It has to be “GT-i9000” for this ROM to be compatible with your phone. If it’s not GT-i9000, simply don’t try this ROM on your android handset — don’t even think about it if you care about your android device.[/error]

Warning: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We wont be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Btw, whether your Galaxy S i9000 is running Android 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3 (any firmware), you can use this guide to install MIUI ROM. What you need is a Galaxy S i9000 device — not any other Galaxy S variant: Vibrant, Fascinate, Epic, etc.

How to Install MIUI on Galaxy S i9000

  1. Download and Install XXJVS Android 2.3.5 firmware.
  2. Root XXJVS. This will also install ClockWorkMod recovery, which is needed to flash MIUI ROM.
  3. Download MIUI ROM from → here. This is MIUI’s own download page where download links for all phones can be found. Scroll down on the page, look for ‘I9000’ and click the download button next to it.
  4. Transfer the MIUI ROM to phone’s sd card.
  5. Go to recovery mode. For this, simply open the CWM app (you get it after step 2) and tap on ClockWorkMod to reboot phone into recovery mode. [Other way to reboot in recovery is to switch off phone and then press and hold 3 buttons together: VolumeUP+Home+Power till the Galaxy S logo shows up on screen]
  6. In recovery, select “install zip from sd card”. Then select “choose zip from sd card”. Now, browse through sd card and select the file MIUI ROM you downloaded in step 3 and transferred in step 4 above.
  7. This will flash the required files on your phone and will reboot your phone into recovery again. This is a slightly different recovery now.
  8. Again, select “install zip from sd card”. Them select “choose zip from sd card”. Now, browse through sd card and select the file MIUI ROM you downloaded in step 3 and transferred in step 4 above.
  9. This time, the MIUI ROM will be flashed actually and after it’s installed, your phone will reboot with MIUI running coolly.
  10. Check that awesome themes app which has tons of cool themes waiting for you. Enjoy!
  11. [Optional] Share this guide with others!
  12. And it’s pretty easy now, right? Thanks to MIUI team.






MIUI — the famous ROM that brings the best of two worlds of Android and iOS — is now available for Samsung Galaxy S (i9000) too. The ROM just got its release candidate out — MCGvX to be exact — which means it’s out of beta now and that the full and final release is ‘coming soon’. There are still some bugs here or there (which, frankly, and surprisingly, didn’t bother me one bit) and I can say, it’s definitely lot better (read: stable) now with almost everything fully working. The working of the ROM apart, it would be cruel if we don’t thank the team who has worked restlessly for months to make this Happen — MAMBO04, Kenia and jblanc, THANK YOU!!!

[info]Important: This guide is applicable only for Samsung’s Galaxy S international version (i9000). If yours is Vibrant/Captivate/Fascinate/Epic 4G/i9000M/i9000B/i9003 or any other Galaxy S variant, then this ROM — and the Guide — is not for you, and that’s for definite.[/info]

Warning: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We wont be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

MAKE SURE YOU CAN ENTER INTO DOWNLOAD MODE (given in Step 3.2 below) before trying this guide, or in fact, any stuff on your phone.

It’s very important and very much required that you Galaxy S is running on Froyo before you begin to install the MIUI ROM. Here are the different scenarios with what you should do in each case.

Case I — Galaxy S with Android 2.1 (Éclair)

I would recommend installing the EZRom — which will install the Android 2.2.1 (Froyo) on your phone and you’ll be alright for installing the MIUI ROM then. Get the EZRom’s installation guide with video over here.

Case II — Galaxy S with Android 2.2/2.2.1 (Froyo)

You’re pretty good to begin the installation procedure. Check the pre-installations requirements below, though.

Case III — Galaxy S with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

You should get back to Froyo. Use the EZRom (‘How To Install’ here).

Pre-Installation requirements:

  1. Once again, make sure you’re on Froyo.
  2. Disable the lagfix, if any. Go to recovery and select the lagfix option therein and select disable. Check this article for more info.
  3. Remove the external SD Card from your phone and don’t put it back until the whole process is complete. (So that you don’t get confused between the two sd cards.)

[info]The video below shows installation of RC1 but the procedures are same (ditto!) for all future realeses (MCGvX) . Thus, the Video will be totally useful for all.[/info]

ROM Installation Video.

Watch the video in FULL before beginning to install MIUI ROM. So that you’re more comfortable and aware while installing the ROM.

[youtube video_id=”lMIoHeXvgCg” width=”630″ height=”395″ /]

You know, this guide is very hack-ish and it actually frightened me a couple of times. BUT, I can say it was totally worth. The ROM is just amazing — you’ll understand it only when you actually use it.

Okay, enough! Here are the Installation instructions.

Installation Steps (this will install MIUI MCGvX version on your Galaxy S i9000):

  1. Download the required stuff:
    1. – Direct download link.
    2. MCGvX.X.X – Direct download link[Updated]
    3. cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel.tar – Direct download link.
    4. speedmod-kernel-k13c-500hz.tar – Direct download link.
    5. Odin3 v1.7.exe – Direct download link.
  2. Transfer the first two files above, “” and “MCGvX.X.X” to your phone’s internal SD Card’s root folder. That is, don’t put the above two files in any sub-folder on your SD Card.
  3. Flash the SpeedMod Kernel:
    1. Unplug the phone if it’s connected to PC. Switch it Off. Wait for it to vibrate a little to confirm complete switch Off.
    2. Get your Galaxy S in Download Mode — Press and hold these keys together: VolumeDOWN+Home+Power.
    3. Now, open Odin. Double click the file Odin3 v1.7.exe.
    4. Plug-in USB cable to connect your Galaxy S (which is in Download Mode) to PC. You should get the “Added! !”notification in the message box of Odin.
    5. In Odin, keep the “Re-Partition” button un-checked. Keep the “Auto reboot” and “F.Reset Time” buttons checked.
    6. Now, click the PDA tab and select the file — speedmod-kernel-k13c-500hz.tar (file at step 1.4 above). Hit Start to flash the speedmod kernel.
    7. After flashing is done, phone will reboot. Upon reboot, Power Off the phone (wait for vibration to confirm complete Switch Off).
    8. Close Odin.
  4. Installing
    1. Enter your phone in recovery mode. Press and hold these keys together: VolumeUP+Home+Power (release when Galaxy S logo appears).
    2. Select “install zip from sd card”.
    3. On next screen, select “choose zip from sd card”. Browse through SD Card and select the file “”. Select “Yes – Install”.
    4. After it’s installed, pull the battery out and then, plug it back in. Do Not restart phone, though!
  5. Flashing the CM7 kernel:
    1. Get the phone in Download Mode — Press and hold these keys together: VolumeDOWN+Home+Power.
    2. Open Odin. (Double click the file Odin3 v1.7.exe)
    3. Plug-in USB cable to connect your Galaxy S (which is in Download Mode) to PC. You should get the “Added! !”notification in the message box of Odin.
    4. In Odin, keep the “Re-Partition” button un-checked. this time — IMPORTANT! — keep the “Auto reboot” button UN-CHECKED too. While, keep only the “F.Reset Time” button checked.
    5. Now, click the PDA tab and select the file “cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel.tar” (at step 1.3 above). Hit Start to flash “cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel.tar”.
    6. After flashing is done, you’ll be still in download mode. Now don’t pull battery. Instead, go to Recovery mode from right there. Press and hold these keys together: VolumeUP+Home+Power (release when Galaxy S logo appears).
  6. Formatting System, Data and Cache.
    1. In recovery, go to “mounts and storage”. You need to Wipe Off System, Data and Cache.
    2. Wiping Off the System: Select “format /system”. Choose “Yes – Format” on the next screen.
    3. Wiping Off the Data: Select “format /data”. Choose “Yes – Format” on the next screen.
    4. Wiping Off the Cache: Select “format /cache”. Choose “Yes – Format” on the next screen.
    5. Select “Go back” at the bottom to return to recovery’s main menu.
  7. Flashing the MIUI ROM (Finally!):
    1. On the recovery’s main menu, select “install zip from sdcard”.
    2. On next screen, select “choose zip from sd card”. Browse through SD Card and select the file “MCGvX.X.X”.
    3. Select “Yes – Install MCGvX.X.X” on next screen. This will install the MIUI ROM.
    4. You’ll be back at recovery. Select “go back”. On the main menu, select “reboot system now” to restart phone. The MIUI ROM will be applied to your phone now.
    5. You’ll notice your screen go mad, literally. In the installation video (above), it’s happening at 10 mins 57 seconds, for some 22 seconds (till 11:19). That was frightening to me (as I mentioned earlier). But don’t panic, let the process continue and you’ll soon see the MIUI Logo. Everything’ is a lot cool from now on. Amazing stuff begins!
  8. You’ll soon see the boot up screen. Press the Android and go through the initial setup stuff.
  9. Let the phone remain idle for a few minutes since it’s the first boot.
  10. The led keys — back key and menu key — may not work right away. No worries though, just lock the screen (screen-off) and then unlock (screen-on) it, and the keys would work alright. A minor bug!
  11. Okay, the The MIUI ROM is there for you to play and explore its bits. Check out the notification bar which has gone completely incredible now. More in this — and even cooler features of MIUI — in the “MIUI Highlights” video (at the bottom of this article).
  12. Enjoy!
  13. I know you like this ROM. So, do consider donating to MIUI team for their super-galaxial work. To donate MAMBO04, send your PayPal donation at this address — I can’t find the donation addresses of others, so will update when I get it.
  14. That’s it.


Upgrade to MCGvX using the recovery. Download the MIUI version MCGvX from here: “MCGvX.X.X – Direct Direct download link”. For that, transfer the file — MCGvX.X.X – to your phone’s sdcard and then power off. Reboot into recovery – press and hold VolumeUP+Home+Power keys until Galaxy S logo appears. Select “Install zip from sdcard” and then select “choose zip from sdcard”. The, select the file MCGvX.X.X and choose Yes on next screen. MCGvX will be flashed.

Benchmark Scores — for whatever they’re worth! Frankly, I don’t have too much faith in these scores.

    Can i root it the same way like i did with the XXJVK 2.3.3 Rom ?

    • Kapil says:

      Buddy MIUI ROM is already rooted. You don’t need to do any other stuff over it.

      • salmannizam says:

        HI Kapil just to check with u , the ROM is understood in its inaugural stage and consecutively been updated weekly however there are some basic apps such as bluetooth application where I am unable to use it & often ‘Force Close’ the application . So is it due to the CM7 bugs infested & instability had made the ROM apps such as unavailability of the ‘High Speed Data Download & Bluetooth application’. Perhaps with your knowledge with this ROM any comments abt resolving it..? Thanks

  2. Sven says:

    Okay, thanks :).

  3. Sven says:

    Is this ROM multilanguage or just english?

  4. Sven says:

    Oh okay :/ , they will add more languages, wont they? Please say yes :D.

    • Kapil says:

      Can’t say for sure but I think they will add more languages…. it takes a lot of effort, so you can be only hopeful that they do.

  5. MAMBO04 says:

    Brilliant guide! Added to OP, thanks mate 🙂

  6. g00ndu says:

    Hi, thanks for the guide. Very informative. However, I would like to point out that for CASE III, Galaxy with Android 2.3, it is not advisable to go to Darkyy’s Resurrection Rom, as this Rom do not have the necessary 2.2 bootloaders. I know it sound strange that a 2.3 GB requires a 2.2 bootloader, but the cm7 kernel is based on the 2.2 kernel. If the people proceed with flashing Resurrection Rom, the end result will be that the Cyanogenmod screen will be corrupted. You will encounter screen tearing during the bootup. I know this because I was on a 2.3 kernel and flashed MIUI. I got the screen tearing issue. So, I did go back to a 2.2 froyo rom (inclusive of the bootloaders) and did the whole thing again. This time everything was perfect.

    For the roms with 2.2 bootloaders, xda member had provided the xxjp1 in his website (thanks galnet). Another one would be the EZRom by nitr8, which can be found in the xda forum as well.

    Hope you can amend the instructions to include the above. 🙂

    • Kapil says:

      Hello G00ndo, thank you very much for pointing it out. Though I completely believe you (I’ve seen you quite lot of times on XDA), I had tried the MIUI ROM coming from Darkyy resurrection only and I didn’t get any issues except the screen disruption during MIUI RC1 installation (it’s at 10:57 in the video) which I think isn’t caused by lack of bootloaders therein. Maybe I’m wrong, but, I’m feeling lucky too. Anyways, I’m gonna edit the post (for sure!) and direct the users to EZRom. I already have the EZRom installation video ready, so would make an ‘how-to’ article of EZRom.

      I think it will help all the users who wanna try the MIUI or any other Gingerbread ROMs (JV1/JVK) and then revert back to Froyo. Thanks, again.

  7. Disappointing.
    1. didnt recognize my sim card nor my network (TIM Brazil)
    2. opening new menus is fast, the video shows that, but sliding things up and down is really slow… awkwardly slow, as if we had a newbie menu running on jquery mobile on a 300mhz pc
    3. camera is all messed up (weird lines, kinda like an old qvga cellphone camera)
    4. random resets
    5. no swype
    6. everything is TOO MUCH iphone-wannabe.
    for the record, everything described here used to work flawlessly with my european galaxy s running 2.2 froyo.
    This 2.3 mod has some nice stuff (ie: the nice effects in home screen as seen on the video), but really messes up important stuff!
    I’m going back to froyo, researching how to do it right now…

    • Kapil says:

      MIUI is best known for its iphone-ish UI but it’s fast too. I think it’s greater than any custom ROM I’ve tried.

      Anyways, you can go back to Froyo using the EZRom mentioned in the article above for those coming from android 2.1/2.3. Follow that link for more info. Plus there is darkys resurrection ROM too which one can apply using Odin, like EZRom. We’ve covered both of them with video, I think that will help you out in reverting back to android 2.2!

      • Exactly my problem, I was going to downgrade…but them I gave xxjkv 2.3.3 a try and I’m extremely satisfied! I REALLY recommend it! Its pure gingerbread samsung sweetness with swype and everything! Btw I’m replying from it right now, lol!

    • Shanmugam says:


      RC3 version did not recognise my Sim card. (india – Vodafone).
      Reverting to Froyo.. What a waste of time!!


  8. Zed Ibrhm says:

    It is normal every time if rebooted,it will go back to factory setting?…and i realized i cannot make multiple selection if i wish to delete contact…how come?

  9. Shivam says:

    ROM updated with the latest version, MIUI9000_RC3B

  10. Brendan says:

    Do I need to un-root my phone before starting installaion of this upgrade?

  11. Affan (MAMBO04) says:

    @Roberto, Shanmugan:

    Firstly you cannot expect this ROM to be perfect out of the box. It is only at RC status and not a Final ROM. Let me outline the issues you stated:

    1. didnt recognize my sim card nor my network (TIM Brazil) <– This is an EFS issue, and it's fixed in RC3b-c.
    2. opening new menus is fast, the video shows that, but sliding things up and down is really slow… awkwardly slow, as if we had a newbie menu running on jquery mobile on a 300mhz pc <– this is where you need to do something on your part, by flashing a new Kernel as it's not the most recent or updated one. Go to XDA and check it out, lag is not present in the new releases. You can overclock/volt the processor to improve battery life and speed.
    3. camera is all messed up (weird lines, kinda like an old qvga cellphone camera) <– this has been stated in the original thread, as MIUI is created using CM7 sources the Camera has been created using source code from scratch, hence no Samsung drivers, hence the quality. MIUI is working on their own 720p camera app which we should have by next week, and hopefully those issues should be fixed or improved upon. You can't compare this to a Froyo ROM as it's Samsung's ROM and they have utmost materials and support to create drivers, and they don't release enough source code.
    4. random resets <– No random resets in any of the releases, are you sure about that? If so, how come you're getting them?
    5. no swype <– Swype can be installed via their own installation app.
    6. everything is TOO MUCH iphone-wannabe. <– This is the whole point, it's not supposed to be stock Android, that's why it's so popular. iOS has a very good feeling to it and this tries to recreate that feeling but in Android, you still get all the Android benefits but a slick UI and very good ROM functions.
    for the record, everything described here used to work flawlessly with my european galaxy s running 2.2 froyo. <– Again, you can't compare this to a ROM which has been developed for a long time now and most bugs ironed out, plus it's on a whole different level to Froyo ROMs.
    This 2.3 mod has some nice stuff (ie: the nice effects in home screen as seen on the video), but really messes up important stuff!

    So i hope that cleared things up for you, check out the main page of our ROM: and there is a lot of useful help, info and advice. RC4 will be up soon and it'll be much better.

  12. Vibranze says:

    Hi, after I flashed RC3B, I got no signal at all, tried to search for Network but failed.

    Is this a known issue with RC3B? I’m downloading RC3C now, hopefully it solves my issue else I have to fall back to Ultimate 8.2.

    Kudos to the developers.


  13. Affan (MAMBO04) says:

    If you get no signal, then flash Froyo again to restore IMEI number and then install MIUI from there.

  14. Daxxad says:

    Hi! Great work!

    Maybe its an idea to make a guide about how you revert to a (custom) froyo rom from MIUI or CM7. This will make it easier for new people to try MIUI out, since they see they can go back to what they had before (their favourite custom froyo/gb rom)


  15. Darthvalker says:

    i have issue after finish install the miui rom, it hang at the reboot screen with samsung galaxy.

    i taket the step going to CASE 3 install EZ rom > then miui

    • Kapil says:

      Um, double check what you are doing with the installation video we’ve provided. If you still get error, write back here.
      Sry for delayed reply!

  16. Cata says:

    I have a problem after I installed the rom and selec reboot system,he doesn’t boot and he comes back to the recovery menu,where he says me
    e:no misc partition.
    what I do now?
    plz help me.

    • Yang says:

      I ve exactly same problem. I followed every of your step and all files downloaded from here. However the last step when i reboot it keep coming back to recovery mode screen. it wont go to the part which your screen blinking with color and go mad. Any help on this please ?

  17. Sameer says:

    First of – thanks for the awesome guide! It was a breeze to install MIUI on my SGS after reading it.

    Have any of you flashed a different Kernel onto your device after installing MIUI? If so, which one do you recommend? MIUI is working just fine, but there’s a slight jitter on scrolling up and down (as mentioned in another comment above).

    • Kapil says:

      I haven’t flashed a different kernel after installing MIUI, so can’t say much about it. No recommendations, either 🙁

  18. St. says:

    Finally jumping from Good Old Froyo (currently on the awesome simply galaxy) to either CM7 or MIUI. Any recommendations? Which one do you guys prefer?

  19. blast says:

    Settings -RC5 crashing

    • blast says:

      Oh- My mistake. Crashing of settings happens because of the iphone theme I installed. 🙂 Rc5 is very stable and beatiful.

      Worth the upgrade !!!!

  20. blast says:

    hey can someone help me? just installed this RC5, Autorotate not functioning..

    • Kapil says:

      To fix the Auto-Rotation issue, use this CM7 kernel — flash it using Odin. Keep Re-Partition unchecked while Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checked. I haven’t tried it but this is based on Affan’s recommendation — who, in case you didn’t know, mastered the MIUI on Galaxy S for us, with other members of his team.

      And let us know whether it’s fixed or not. 🙂

      • blast says:

        Hi Kapil,

        That one worked, before seeing your reply, I made a research installed the cm7 platypus but there are bugs on that. Just to correct odin didn’t recognized the file so I saved it on the sd card and install thru recovery mode 🙂

  21. Affan says:

    You need a new Kernel, go to XDA Galaxy S Development and download a custom CM7 Kernel by Zach or Bilboa. Kapil you may want to list it on here.

  22. mitico says:

    e qual e il migliore che si puo scaricare abbastanza stabile grazie

  23. salmannizam says:

    HI there guys, well its seem I am seeing the same problem as u guys most of them do..The ROM is pretty cool and interesting but I regret to say that i a, unable to continue with the ROM as it doesn’t detect the networks neither manually or automatically…such a waste..really felt a pity went that much to exploit the phone but can’t get enough to play through it…hope the community could fix this ‘network’ bugs…

    Kudos to the development community..Gd Job

  24. salmannizam says:

    HI there again, I manage to resolve the problem as with regards to the ‘Network’ or SIM card problem experienced upon installation. All I have to do is reset the ROM to ‘Foryo’ Android 2.2 (XXJPA) extension and thereafter loading it and did manaual configuration in the network setting and lastly saving the ‘Access Point’ prior to switching off the phone. Everything went smooth as per instruction but however the’Market’ is the only one which is yet to be resolve as whenever I use my ‘network’ to open Market to download Apps I am unable but if I use a Wi-Fi I am able to download the Apps from Market. Ironically I can download songs from the web directly using my ‘network’ . Thus my derivation to the problems is the Market where the bugs need to be fixed…

    – Thanks to the community guys!!

  25. Sempot says:

    can i flash from ezbase with its kernel(SOK) ?
    without flashing Speedmod kernel and just go to MIUI?

  26. pandaabc says:

    i flashed it 3 times already but my IMEI is still missing/incorrect…
    what am i doing wrong ?

    • Sempot says:

      try to use root explorer and mount to RW and deelete efs folder

    • Kapil says:

      Lemem see if I can help you. Try the XDA thread of the MIUI too — seek some help there.

      • pandaabc says:

        thanks, i tried to post in the forum thread but i do not have the permissions to make a reply…

        • Kapil says:

          You have to be registered there. So, first register at XDA, and then login using your ID n Password. Then you’ll be able to post a reply — mention proper details there, I hope you get the solution!

          • pandaabc says:

            I did register, but it seems that xda doesnt like new users posting in their forum – (Sorry, users below 50 posts cannot post in this forum)

            I solved the problem, the 5th time that I reflashed, I redownloaded the efs backup file.. maybe it was corrupted? but now theres no problem =)

            Thanks for the help!

  27. Karthik says:

    Hey, When it says that the camera doesn’t work. Is it like the camera is completely disabled?(Don’t mind if I sound retarded) Or is there any hope of taking snaps using my i9000. Thx in advance

  28. Karthik says:

    Ok, I installed it exactly as you mentioned in the Video above and have a major problem. My network is not getting recognized. It always says no service. can you please help out with this problem ASAP. PLEASE!

    • Kapil says:

      I will try to find a solution…. It’ll take some timer, though. Maybe, a day.

      • Karthik says:

        Hey, Any luck with the above mentioned problem? I’m really eager to use this ROM. The UI jus blows my mind. Kudos to the developers for the great job. Please let me know when it’s fixed. Thx in advance 🙂

    • Chandramohan says:

      Hi, Kapil, i also have the same problem, my network is not getting recognized, i revert back to EZbase 2.2 and again MIUI , again same problemthe problem is E,

      i found at XDA that efs backup is the problem, they suggested to go 2.2 and install again, but no use,


      Pls help us to find the solution

  29. Karthik says:

    So do I revert back to my Stock ROM until then? And if yes, Can you please tell me HOW to do it?

    Thx in advance.

    • Kapil says:

      If you want Android 2.2, use EZRom, else, install the latest released Android 2.3 ROM — XWJVB, it’s awesome. Seach our website to get the links.

  30. Brendan says:

    I have just flashed RC5 to my Galaxy S but the 3G data is not working, it finds my network and I can make calls but not download data. Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

      Hi Brendan I’m too facing the same problem, despite the 3G network available however it did detect the High Speed Data Transfer ‘H’ which would blink whenever there is a download thus its difficult to make any download unless if you are using ‘Wi-Fi’ which is the alternate source of downloading stuff right now till further upgrades and bugs repair of the ROM available every just look for it as I am looking forward for a solution from the community..

  31. skyfolly says:

    nice job guys! thanks a lot, been using miui for a while on my htc evo 4g(some small bugs still, yet ok with it), installed it on galaxy s for the first time, not bad so far, the original rom crashed on me a lot, hope miui would improve it. thanks guys, great job!

  32. blast says:

    Hi Kapil,

    Got another question regarding Miui, been using it for a while now.
    When I add new contact, it is not saved. When I try to search it no result.

  33. KapilFTW says:

    Really AWESOME tutorial, thanks for the hard job !

  34. Thomas says:


    Great guide, works great.

    However, i saw that there is RC6 out now. How do I upgrade from to the new version??

  35. Karthik says:

    Hey, the XDA forums says to use the Antilon kernel. How do i flash that kernel? Can you please make a tutorial. I’d be more than grateful. I’m new to all this, so please help out. Thx in advance 🙂

    • Kapil says:

      If you’re installing the ROM for the first time, install it as per the steps (follow full guide) given above.
      Or, if you’ve already installed any of the previous versions of MIUI, just flash the RC6b (“”) by installing it using recovery mode (as said in step 7 above).

      For those who are too much concerned with Antilon Kernel, it’s included in RC6b, so no need to find and flash it separately. Easy!

  36. Karthik says:

    1 more thing. The RC5b installation on my i9000 went smooth. Great job i must say, but when i restarted my phone, All my saved data was gone. My contacts, settings, and I had customized the launcher, but all gone. Am i the only one to face this, or is there a prior occurance of this? Please let me know if there is a fix for this. Love the ROM so far 😀

  37. Skedone says:

    when i go to mounts and storage to format the phone mate all i get is a hat with a arrow under it mate, any ideas why and how to fix

  38. thw says:

    bricked my sgs at point 3.5. flashing the speedmodkernel 🙁

    damn shit…

  39. Jhepunk0116 says:

    Im on a custom ROM, Darky’s…so does it mean that before I can flash this ROM, I have to be on a stock Gingerbread 2.3.3?

  40. Chandramohan says:

    finally i am MIUI, thanks you very much dear

  41. Thejovig says:

    The flashing went fine and the phone is working. If someone calls me and i answer it, all the caller will hear is a loud howling first and lot of echo. Every time someone calls me, i have to call them back….. Any fix for this?

  42. Karthik says:

    @itskapil:disqus I have a small problem with RC8c. After installing it, everything went fine. Great infact. The only problem is, when i get an incoming call, The calling party is unable to hear my voice. But when i call, it is fine. Can you please see if there is a fix? Thx in advance

  43. Kapil says:

    Here’s what’s new in this build:
    – 720p (no spelling mistake) Now Working- Sensor Fixes- Front Facing Camera G-Talk Fix (Thanks CM7 Team) & Currydude- Gallery 3D Re-Added- EFS Restore Re-Added- Youtube Application Included- Other small features for further development.

    • Karthik says:

      Hey @itskapil:disqus , The problem i was facing was only partly fixed. On incoming calls, , The callers can hear my voice only 1 out of 3 times. That is slightly disturbing. Does the MGv3 Have a fix for this? Please help out as the XDA page has not given any changelogs on the MGv3. Would really appreciate the help. Thx

  47. suvi says:

    @itskapil:disqus thanks a lot for the update 🙂 just installed it… no network issues… will tell u if der r any further problems.. thanks again 😀

  48. suvi says:

    @itskapil:disqus is der a way to download samsung apps?

    • Kapil says:

      Hey, you just migrated to MIUI and are already missing those Samsung Apps — sounds strange, and funny. BTW, I don’t think there is a good way to get the Samsung Apps application back but you can try nitrality’s app, link here:
      Just know that I’m not sure whether it would work out or not since MIUI is a separate thing and I haven’t tried anything like this on MIUI before. It could mess things up or maybe, would work out smoothly, I don’t know.

      BTW, now that you are on MIUI try out the its theme engine, the best theme app out there and explore the great themes all available for free. I think you are gonna love that.

      I hope the nitrality app does the job for you.

    • Kapil says:

      Oh, just Googled for it and found the apk to install Samsung Apps app. here is the download link —
      . Good luck!

      • suvi says:

           Thanks tried installing it but it says “Application not installed”… same prob for stock apps such as video player etc 🙁

  49. Chandramohan says:

    Hi, Already MG v3 could installed without signal issues, still have bugs atleast for me,

    1) When applying a new theme, totally struck, need to remove the battery,

    2) From today morning 2 times crashed,

    3) Calls no problem,

    4) When i am installing apps its telling no memory, even i have 4 gb of internal memory free

    5) Cant download anything from market

    ) After every restart the language is changing to chinese automatically

     I’m experiencing some insane battery drain / I lose 50% + battery overnight / Ive been using JuiceDefender, turning off data and wifi / still the battery goes down real fast / I know it’s a CM7 bug, is there a fix for this ? 

  55. Anon says:

    Please make sure to include that the phone not only must first be on froyo, it must also be on a froyo BOOTLOADER. Gingerbread bootloader also supports froyo, hence causing confusion among people who think they are on Full froyo, but actually have a ginger bootloader.

    Without this pre requisite, it will cause the problem of not able to read the external SD card and also the crazy boot up screen.

  56. Crabbygabby75 says:

     I bit the bullet and decided to install MIUI on my Galaxy S  and I have to say that I’m gobsmacked! Impressed to bits, the way it feels, the way it looks….

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

     Great ROM. I’ve had Darky’s v10 Final, and Cyanogenmod 7 Nightly on my GT-I9000 in the last 2 weeks and this is the best for performance. I got a 1790 on quadrant with MIUI and only topped 1070 on Dark’s. Keep up the GREAT work…

    MIUI NO SERVICE problem solved…so try this and see the magic…i m a samsung galaxy s user and huge fun of miui rom !! But since v5 i have noticed an serious issue that sim card was not working after even clean ezbase froyo installation wipe data/system/cache  so …. after unsucsesfull 50 try (almost really  ) so finally i figure out how to fix it,i find a kind a helpfull to share my experience with miui rom  1- first things first higly recomended clean froyo firmware(or bootloader) so my choice was a ezbase froyo — link: must be rooted,here s the link that i m always check for rooting my galaxy s (if u flashed ezbase than your phone is already rooted so u can skip this step)3-after clean installation of froyo/ezbase than make sure that your simcard is working and imei is correct4-If everythings working as used to be than install app call ” boite a outlis SGS” from market (its a french app)5- open the app u installed from step 4 and allow for root access.even app is french luckly main tab bar is english so click on “efs” (3th from left) and than click on option 1 (sauvegarde EFS) this will backup your correct imei/efs to app s own folder on internal sd card.6-than just flash your miui rom as normal(but do not format to internal sd card)7-after u finish with clean and correct installation of miui rom than install same app from step 4!! and than click on “efs” tab and go with second option(restauration EFS)8-restart the phone and KABOOOM””””  there u go now u have a clean miui rom with correct imei and working sim card

    quick question, sgs running 2.3.3, will it still be possible to flash miui through the general method..? :S

    • Kapil says:

      You’ll need to flash Android 2.2 EZRom first as given above for the Android
      2.3 case. Everything you need to know is given in the post above — just
      read it from the beginning.

    • Saurabh Pangarkar says:

      Would be best to start from Froyo. Again, your phone needs to be rooted so use EZROM.

  82. Saurabh Pangarkar says:

    Hey Guys, I am sure you’ve read several threads on this problem. I have almost searched every forum but couldn’t find a working solution. It is regarding the Soft Keys on my SGS. I installed MIUI using the above steps. Started with EZROM and continued with MIUI. When I started my phone I noticed the softkeys were no more working. I know Kapil mentioned that there is a minor bug with the soft keys. But for me they never worked, lock – unlock- restart – reflash – installed stock rom etc. I followed the entire process again today but same results.

    My guess is that MIUI may have disabled the softkeys because it normally works on phones with button keys like Acer, Droid etc. Could this be a right assumption?

    Can you please let me know if you faced this problem? Also is there a solution or thread I can read which provides some fix?

    • Saurabh Pangarkar says:

      Hi Guys,I got it to work after a long struggle going on for more than a week and more than 100 ROM flashes, don’t know what is the max limit just kidding.I downloaded and installed the stock ROM for 2.2.1 from The ROM number is I9000ZSJPJ under Asia. Then ran the Touch key FW update by keying in *#*#2663#*#* in the dialer menu. This ran the update successfully, earlier it used to go in an endless loop. This time it worked and the Touchkeys were back again.I just installed MIUI and it works like a charm with the touchkeys. Thanks for reviewing and responding to my post. Happy Galaxing!!!

        the lang. prob. solution is to download anysoftkeyboard app and also u should download your require lang. pack (both u can find and download at market , also for free)

        and if mean the first prob. about network .. i think u need PIN code to unlock SIM .. u should call ur network company .

        then go Settings.. choose Personal (in the taps above) > Security & Privacy Settings > Set up SIM card lock > check lock SIM card > write the PIN code and click OK !.. hope that hlp .. try it !

    What should I do? Is my phone bricked? :S

    • Kapil says:

      Don’t worry, your phone isn’t bricked.

      Were you using any custom ROM before trying this. For now, install JVS and root it using steps number 1 and 2 in the guide.

      And you sure, you’ve Galaxy S GT-i9000?

      • Lucas says:

        Yes I’m sure I have an i9000. I used a custom ROM, when I open recovery it seems like my phone opens my old voodoo-CWM. But you think It’s impossible to install MIUI on my phone? 🙁

        • Kapil says:

          No man, it’s still as easy as it can get. Actually, you had lagfix on which caused problem. If you had disabled the lagfix before flashing MIUI, it wouldn’t have happened.

          Anyway, you can install xxjvs, root and install cwm recovery and then install MIUI.

  99. Lucas says:

    @itskapil:disqus Thank you for your help! I tried it again and for some reason everything worked fine. Now my phone is blazingly fast and the UI is so beautiful!

    Now for my forth MIUI install but back to 1.9.30.

    I should also mention my reason for doing a clean wipe install in the first place even though I had MIUI already on my phone…

    After a month of living with MIUI quite happily, I started getting a few force close error messages popping up when openning apps. By the end of the week it was happening with most of my apps. I couldn’t open 99% of them without a force close.

    Presumable some kind of cache corruption which I tried to remedy by doing a MIUI factory reset. This made the situation worse as now I’d lost my backing up apps (as it wipes all non MIUI apps) and couldn’t open or log into the marketplace (as it would force close).

    In my experience, you shouldn’t expect to get more than about 6 to 8 weeks out of any install before something goes belly up. i.e. sluggish performance, force closing, etc.

    Apparently this is part of the fun.

    I did have identical problem with my I9000. when flashing 1.11.4 rom. Endless loop with Cyanogen mod screen flashing quickly at the screen. 

    At least i learned quite well how to use Odin ja how to recover my phone 😉

    hey, i flashed the miui file by recovery for first time… and it continued by itself till the end, i didnt have to reselect ” choose zip form sdcard ” and select the miui file again… (step 7 and 8 ), would that be normal ??

    ie : i dont have and external sdcard, so i put the miui file on phone’s memo

    and thanks for the awesome tutorials

      That’s fine — about both things you asked.

      Maybe MIUI guys updated there file to get rid of second flashing. It’s good news, i’ll update the guide after trying it myself.

      Enjoy 🙂

    hello, i need help, please !
    when starting the phone the normal samsung galaxy s picture appears, that after the picture with the mod an then the picture of the rom manager…..
    i can´t do anything, can somebody help me, please ?

    • Kapil says:

      You can try booting into recovery and then, do factory reset, do wipe cache partition and then under advanced, do wipe dalvik cache. Then, reboot.
      If this doesn’t help, repeat the whole procedure again, man, from step 2.

    Was running XXJVR (2.3.6) on my rooted GT I9000. Did the following :
    1. Did factory reset
    2. Wiped Cache
    3. Wiped Dalvik
    4. Wiped battery stat
    5. Installed the .zip file from Internal SD
    6. First reboot happened as described
    7. While trying to install the .zip file from internal SD now, it showed Error (7) and did not load
    8. Phone bricked

    Any solutions?

    I tried the following :
    1. Tried to load back XXJVR using Download mode
    2. It loaded and then does not boot the phone at all. Galaxy logo keeps flashing
