I just recently discovered the MIUI custom ROM for Android - and i've just fallen in love with it... Unfortunately I am new to this concept of installing custom ROM, and have a few questions. The first one being - is it possible to even install this ROM on my android? I have purchased imported phone, from China (the W007 Android); For this I have done quite a bit of looking around, but unfortunately (where ever I have found a download link) for the MIUI- their all just specific versions (for specific phones). I am sooo interested in installing this onto my phone, but I cannot find a valid version for my phone... The Phone Details Follow:
Android Version: 4.0.3
Baseband Version: MAUI.11AMD.W11.50.SP.V14, 2012/04/20 17:38
Kernel Version: 3.0.13 Sat Jun 9 13:12:07
Build Number: ALPS.ICS.MP.V1.11
Model Number: e1809c_v75_jbl_253
(Please just ask me for anything that is needed)
Second question was... Will I need to Root my phone, inorder to install this custom rom? I was asking this as, I believe that the warranty for the phone becomes void, if it is Rooted?
Lastly - how exactly would I be able to Root my phone?
I understand that this is a big ask - but if you could help me out with this little problem, it would be dearly appreciated
Thanks in advanced.
I'm afraid that, unless your phone is listed in the 'ROMs' section, I don't think it will be compatible with MIUI.
In answer to your other questions, yes you will need to root your phone to install MIUI. Yes, it will void your warranty (although there may be ways to reverse this, should you need to return the phone for example). Each phone tends to be different when it comes to rooting, so you will need to try and find a tutorial specific to your phone online. The procedure can range from being complex to extremely easy. I'm afraid there is no standard 'how-to' that applies to every phone. XDA Developers is probably the best place to look www.xda-developers.com. Hope this helped.
