Dear friends friends and MIUI fans, did you think that MIUI had forgotten our beloved terminal? Well, I do and so it seems! In fact, while many devices receive MIUI V5 with Android 4.4.2, our terminal still receives 4 version updates with Android 4.1.
Thanks though a 秋叶 随风 Ivan (which you can remember for the modified and necessary recovery to install the kitkat ROMs) today comes a beta version of the MIUI v5 based on Android 4.4.2!
Well, actually it was not really defined as such, that is beta, but there are still many bugs and, even if I tested it for a few minutes, it seems there are frequent application crashes (see messages).
The known bugs so far are the following
- Absent the vibration in calls, but working for the rest
- lack of the dolby effect
- impossible to read the contacts saved on the SIM
- all the bugs present in the personal version of the same Ivan
- ART runtime not present at the moment
The installation procedure is always the same: enough flash the ROM on the desired system, then perform the various wipes and restart the phone. However, before proceeding, it is advisable to carry out a Nandroid Backup to be able to easily return to the previous ROM with all settings and apps installed.
If you want to have independent 2 ROMs (since Xiaomi is possible) and you missed our Dual Boot guide, you can read it here!
Obviously it will be necessary to have a custom ROM, not flash on MI recovery. You can use the Ivan or M1cha latest version (tested by me). Who all recovery and other ROMs.
Finally, it is stated that this is a ROM issued by a user. No OTA updates will be available nor will it be possible to update weekly as we are used to doing.
As for languages, there is no Italian, so only English and Chinese are available.
