Looking for some major changes to your UI? Check out MIUI ROM v5 for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 or AT&T SGH-i777.

UPDATE: There’s a new version available here!!!

The latest MIUI ROM v5 is very impressive in my opinion and a great refreshing changeout from TouchWiz/AOSP ROMs.

MIUI ROM v5 is also built on Samsung TouchWiz base instead of AOSP, giving you more stock-like stability while allowing you to use the regular S2 camera.

MIUI in general gives your phone a whole new UI (User Interface) to work with and I think latest V5 is a great example of how Android can be customized to the bleeding edge.

If you haven’t tried MIUI yet or the latest MIUI V5 yet, definitely give the completely revamped MIUI ROM a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think! Personally, I have been running MIUI on most of my phones due to the fact that I wanted to try something new.

    the touch buttons light up when i touch them…what did i do wrong?

    • Fuji

      I have the exact same problem. :/

      • Max

        Make sure you chose the stock kernel when installing.

        • NightVave

          pls, windows phone for i9100….pls !!

        • George

          What do you mean?…. I have installed it as well and I have the same problem… black screen after reboot… I can go into recovery mode and that’s a blessing…

        • George

          i forgot to mention I have gt-i9100

  • Harry

    What do you mean by stock kernel? I want to try this and I dont want to be like those 2..

  • Wim Van de Pitte

    Look like a nice rom however, unable to install πŸ™
    Only black screen as mentioned above…

  • Raz

    Guys, I`ve provided instructions on how to install…2 times already!! But for some reason they won`t post…maybe because I`ve also pasted in some Websites?

    Anyways, you need to install this ROM using the instructions that can be found on their official website. Just google MIUI. I had the same issues as you, but resolved them after following those instructions step by step.

    MIUI is great…it`s by far the best ROM available out there for Android, and features like miSpace can leave behind easily most of the custom Android builds!

    I can help, just let me know!

    • Bruijn

      How to enable root rights ?

      • Harry

        Root your phone.

        • Bruijn

          Phone is rooted.
          But i cannot enable permission control

          • Harry

            Why? Try to change your kernel. πŸ™‚

            • Bruijn

              How Can I do That ?

              • Harry

                I dont know how to explain it well so just google it :))

    • Suren

      Could you copy and paste the instructions please.

      • Harry

        There’s an instruction how to root in this website πŸ™‚

        • Suren

          Instructions for flashing the ROM I meant , I went to the miui website and looked up the instructions, I didn’t get it cos they had soo many, I couldn’t follow it :/
          I would appreciate it if you write down the instructions for the flashing procedure

          • Harry

            Im using may cellpjone right now. So maybe later I can help you with your problem when I use desktop πŸ™‚ And can you give the link for the intructions you are following? πŸ™‚

  • Bruijn

    I have no root rights.

  • Ivan

    Root in the folder System & security > permissions > root

    • Pagna

      I can’t enable root, when I click enable permission manager nothing happens …

  • Raz

    Dudes, with regards to the rooting part, just follow the tutorial from this website, it`s awesome and easy. As for flashing MIUI by following the instructions from the official site, you have to go to the “Download” section and then choose “Samsung I9100” from the column in the right –> it`ll take you straight to the flashing instructions

    Just follow each step, even the recovery part…you can`t do nothing wrong to your phone.

  • Suren

    Is there any way of flashing this ROM without the use of a computer?

  • Raz

    Hmmm…you could try, if your phone is already rooted and have the CWM installed…

  • Suren
  • mate

    i instaled trough tutorial on official page miui but my phone is now stuck on boot and led on touch keys is always on, what kernel do you use to install this and that is working with miui, the one from official miui tutorial dont work on my phone

    • mate

      now is working,only install siyah kernel v6

      • Raz

        So is everything alright now? Is it up and running? **fingers crossed!

        • mate

          yes, now it works but it doesnt have root ,permisions dont work, web browser default not working, dont have screen unlock, no stweaks app with siyah kernel i dont know why , anyone know why i have that problems and what i did wrong

          • Raz

            No root? How come? Did you follow those instructions step by step? When I did it, even though my S2 was rooted, by following those instructions I Un-rooted it just to get it to a clean stage, then rooted according to the instructions by using Odin, got into CWM and that was it…

  • Harry

    I also went to the official website but when i look up to the instructions, it so damn many that the rom is flash by odin. I want Max to make the tutorial for how to install it to be clear.

    • Raz

      I’m sorry to hear that, but you don’t really flash the ROM with Odin man, you flash it with CWM that gets installed through ODIN. Look (taken from the official site from step 5):

      Perform following actions using the phone

      Perform the operations below in sequence. Press VOLUME to choose and press HOME to confirm.
      install zip from sdcard.
      choose zip from internal sdcard.
      miui_miui_GalaxyS2_2.X.X_gdiqrbqkgr_4.0.zip
      Yes-install miui XXXXX.
      Click β€œBack” and then run reboot system.
      The phone will restart automatically.

      • Harry

        Oh sorry cuz i didn’t read all thr instructions. It make my head spin. Your instruction is do easy tnx. Btw wiping data,cache,dalvik is also needed right cuz u didn’t said it in your instruction. Just making sure dude πŸ™‚

        • Raz

          You`re totally right, that`s why I said that as long as you follow the instructions, you should be alright. Look, these above the instructions I`ve provided earlier:

          Perform following actions using the phone

          Settings -> Applications -> development -> USB debugging
          Connect the phone to the computer when the phone is on and double click /ADB/adb Recovery.bat in flashing tool pack to go to recovery mode, which is characterized by a light blue English interface

          There is another way to go to recovery mode. When the phone is off, hold down VOLUME UP+HOME+POWER. And perform the operations below in sequence. Press VOLUME to choose and press HOME to confirm.

          Perform the operations below in sequence. Press VOLUME to choose and press HOME to confirm.
          wipe data/factory resetβ€”β€”Yesβ€”β€”delete all user data.
          wipe cache partitionβ€”β€”Yes-Wipe Cache.

          • Harry

            Thanks dude. Now I can finally use Miui v5. Thanks for your efforts πŸ™‚

            • Raz

              Really glad to hear that man! Enjoy it and have a great wknd! Peace

  • keith

    Black Screen FIXED:

    – After installing the Rom, DON’T REBOOT.
    – Flash a Kernel (for me Siyah)
    – Reboot and your done

    • Harry

      Oh tnx for this info πŸ™‚

      • tamer

        hi ….. can u plz help me i tried 2 or 3 kernels but still have the black screen … can u tell me what kernel i should use

    • red

      will SiyahKernel S2-v5.0.1 work with this????

      • Raz

        It should work, yeah…but just flash the lateste Siyah Kernel and it`ll work just fine…I just did it!

        • red

          ok thanks heaps. Latest siyah is v6.0beta5 right?
          Is that the one you are using?
          Thanks

          • Raz

            Yup, that`s the one dude! Reboot into CWM and choose “install zip from sd card” (after previously copying the .zip kernel to the root of your sd card), navigate to the kernel archive and select it. It`ll only take a few seconds to update… good luck with it!

            • red

              yeah all good man. Just wanted to double check the version. Thanks for your help
              peace

              • Raz

                Cool, glad to hear that! Spread the love man!

                • Piyush Jain

                  I did have Siyah Kernal, I upgraded to MIUI on my S2 I9100 and after that I couldnt get root access. I did flash Siyah Kernal again as suggested at few places here but didnt get the root access yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Lars

    How’s the battery life on this very interesting ROM?

    /lbt

    • Raz

      The battery life is pretty good, was better before the last update…24 h with data plan on.

  • Suren

    When I flash this ROM my current kernel (dorimanx) still remains, shouldn’t the kernel change once you flash a new ROM? or do you manually have to flash new kernel if so could suggest any good kernel for battery life.

    • Raz

      It should change after the flashing…I know mine did!

  • Harry

    This is how I installed it:
    1. Download the rom from the official site
    2. Download siyah kernel if you dont have thanks to (keith)
    3. Copy it to the external memory
    4. Reboot into recovery
    5. Wipe data,cache,dalvik
    6. Install the Miui
    7. Install siyah kernel
    8, Then reboot. πŸ™‚
    Hope I helped you guys. πŸ˜€

    • Harry

      And also thanks for (Raz’s) instruction. πŸ™‚

      • Raz

        Big up Harry! You know what the kids from Captain Planet use to say: “When our powers combine…”

        • Harry

          Yeah dude. three heads are better than one πŸ˜‰

          • Piyush Jain

            I did have Siyah Kernal, I upgraded to MIUI on my S2 I9100 and after that I couldnt get root access. I did flash Siyah Kernal again as suggested at few places here but didnt get the root access yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Harry

    If any body encouter the no root access. Just go to system and security folder in the second page then > Permissions > Root > Enable permission manager πŸ™‚

    • Pagna

      that’s what I did, but nothing happens when I press “enable permission manager” it just says “permission monitor is disabled”

      • Harry

        Install super user from the market. It works πŸ™‚

  • Jim Douglas

    I installed the four MIUI files on my i777. It is a very clean and friendly interface but the ‘soft’ buttons don’t work properly on the i777. Also the Google Apps package didn’t install much (if anything) that I can tell. This looks like a great ROM if I can get it tuned for this particular phone.

    • Raz

      Hi Jim…don’t know much about the i777 but I would reinstall it if I was you. Start from the beginning with a fresh install…

    • Eliezer

      This rom works fine to me except the camera i tried to flash the 4.2 camera but doesn’t work neither

  • Dave Logan

    I have s2 and about 6 months use the MIUI. Before I had MIUI V4 and now the newest.
    My opinion this a good and simple UI . Before I was a problem with 3g.
    You can check in network setting- Accass point names-Bell(or another service)-Port you can write here 80
    and you can use the data on phone.
    I like its rom but I downloaded from official MIUI site and every friday updated automaticly.

  • Eliezer

    I just installed this rom in my i777 but the camera doesn’t works
    How can i make it work? I don’t wanna remove this rom, because i love it, but the camera is so important to me

  • Brandon

    I installed it and it seems to be fine but I cant figure out how to access the apps that are on the phone but are not on the home screens. There is no app view buttons. For example, google hangouts is installed but its not on my screen and I dont know where to go to find it.

    • Thomas

      All apps in MIUI are on the home screen, just like in IOS. There is no menu.

  • Brandon

    @Eliezer, I would try clearing your phone and reinstalling if it does not see the camera. That happened to me when I first installed a different ROM, and I wiped the phone, reinstalled and it worked fine for months until I upgraded to this one today.

    • Eliezer

      I can see the camera icon but when i open it, the screen goes black and show a message like ‘mediacenter stopped working’ (sorry for my bad english)

      I love the ROM but lost root after installing MIUI. I cant seem to get root back. When I flash with other kernels, I get the black street. When I flash the jeboo kernel, i get past the black screen but have no root control. Can anyone help?

  • Tayler Perry

    Hi, I’m having problems with notifications for 3rd party apps (Example, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Twitter etc) – I don’t receive any sound or notifications in my statusbar.

    Is this happening for anyone else? I’ve flashed a fresh copy of the rom again, and re-installed the apps to see if it makes a difference but it hasn’t.

    Any help would be appreciated, cheers.

    • Chan51

      Same problem here with facebook, facebook messenger, fotmob and NoLED. Also reinstalled the apps and the problem persists. I think the MIUI task manager is killing these and other apps periodically but thereΒ΄s no control of it, isnΒ΄t it? Any help would be appreciated.

    • Alee Don

      after several tries its finally working. I installed my previous rom (AOKP) and transfered files like GS2 rom cleaner, GS2 kernel cleaner, GS2 nuke and all the cleaners out there to clean the internal memory. Reinstalled the Miui rom and flashed the Version 9 drminx didnt work, siyah V5 didnt work either but dormins-siyah V8 kernal worked.
