For this week’s ROM of the week, check out latest version of MIUI ROM V5 for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-i777.

Based on Android 4.1.2, the latest MIUI ROM is better than ever, giving you a ton of free themes, UI makeover, and lots of features not found on TouchWiz/AOSP custom ROMs.

Xiaomi, maker of MIUI ROM, has released their own Android smartphones into the China market and you can also get them on Amazon if you want.  But if you own a Galaxy S2, you can simply flash the MIUI ROM turn your S2 into a Xiaomi phone and see what the fuss is all about.

I know many of you are waiting on Android 4.4 KitKat (and you can see some of the new features with KitKat in this video) and it should definitely be here by end of this month.  While you wait, try something new and if you haven’t tried MIUI ROM yet, definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    • bruno says:

      In this method you can connect your Samsung Galaxy S2 with PC without taking the help of slow KIES or Samsung PC suit software.

      1) Use a micro SD card in your SGS2.

      2) Open Applications > Settings > Wireless and Networks.

      3) Select USB Utilities > USB Mass storage.

      4) Tap “Connect Storage to PC”.

      5) Now connect your Samsung Galaxy S2 with the PC with an USB data cable.

      6) Now you shall see a green Android icon with an USB.

      7) After that select “connect usb storage”.

      8) The color of the green android will be changed to orange. That means connection is successful. Now you can open the Micro SD card of your phone from your PC. Store it with songs, spreadsheets, videos or images.

      Note: While disconnecting your Samsung Galaxy S2 from the PC please press “disconnect storage from pc” button. Then the Android will be changed again to green ( from orange). Then you may disconnect the phone. If you disconnect your sgs2 without following this process you may manage to corrupt your mobile’s micro SD card.

    Anyone else having problems with notifications? They’re either delayed or just don’t come up at all. I’m only saying this because I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 (running MIUI v5 4.2.7) and a standard Google Nexus 7 tablet running an un-rooted stock KitKat. I get notifications through perfectly fine on my Nexus 7, but they don’t seem to come through at all on my MIUI v5 GS2. Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers in advance!

    • tjperry92 says:

      Oh and I’ve also made sure the pop-ups are on, and auto-start the apps I want notifications from. I’ve done all of that, but still nothing is coming through properly.
