MIUI v4 Based On Ice Cream Sandwich Now Available For Galaxy S II and HTC Sensation
By on March 16th, 2012

MIUI is without a doubt the most unique custom ROM for Android handsets out there. Unlike all other custom ROMs, which are either based on AOSP or the OEM’s firmware and add tweaks and certain enhancements to it, MIUI has a completely different UI. Some users might complain that the UI is too iOS like, but from inside the ROM is still open like Android and allows users to customize nearly every aspect of the UI.

Ever since Google released the Ice Cream Sandwich source code to the public, the Chinese developers behind MIUI have been hard on merging ICS with MIUI. After months of hard work, the MIUI team has finally released MIUI v4, based on Ice Cream Sandwich, for the Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation. Until now, MIUI v4 was only available for the Nexus S and MI-One Xiaomi.
