MIUI v4 for Droid X2 is Up. Everything Works, Except Some Bugs!
It’s here, finally!!! MIUI v4 for the Droid X2!! For those of you who have been used to running MIUI on your Droid X, and upgraded to the X2, you can now give your device the much needed makeover, with MIUI 4, based on the ICS framework.
Keep in mind though, that this is still a Beta ROM, which means that some bugs are to be expected. But key things seem to be working fine. Let’s have a quick peek at the features and known issues, quoted from the developer’s thread:
- Same Hardware working as CM7 i.e. CDMA/3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera.
- ICS Framework
- MIUI US apps
- MIUI Control panel
- Black Ice theme default
- MIUI’s camera FC’s on saving pictures. This release is using CM7’s camera app which works
- Screenshots are crashing system server
- The Black Ice Theme may not apply fully on install. Just choose it in the theme manager after install and you should be good to go.
- FM and HDMI is not working
The steps and methods included in this guide are considered risky. Please do not attempt to try this unless you know exactly what you are doing, as it may render your device unusable, and your pocket lighter by the amount it takes to replace it. You have been forewarned!!!
