Last week, we did a little write-up on the various custom ROMs available and which one you should be choosing based on what you wanted to get out of them. One of the ROMs that we highlighted was MIUI, a ROM that completely changes the look of Android. Well, HTC One users, you can rejoice today, as MIUI v5 is now available for your device.
Over at the XDA-Developers forum, user AdyScorpius has posted a relatively stable build of the ROM that works on HTC One devices. Please note, as always, that the installation of custom ROMs and flashing your device is risky business and we always recommend that you backup your data prior to playing around with the firmware.
If you’re still that you want to give MIUI a try on your HTC One device, head over here and download the ROM file that you need and follow these simple instructions:
- Push zip file to sdcard or Download on phone.
- Reboot to recovery.
- Wipe data (Factory Reset)
- Flash ROM.
As noted by Android Authority and AdyScorpius, the above instructions are only guaranteed to work with the international versions of the HTC One. If you have a carrier specific variant, please do some research over at the XDA Forums before flashing away blindly.
Has anyone installed MIUI on his or her HTC One yet? If so, how do you like it so far?
