    Hello everyone

    I'm seriously considering the MI-2 (i have a friend in china), however i'm not a fan of customized ROMs, so, if i get the MI-2, can i install rooted stock Android? and will it be updated within reasonable periods?

    Many thnx

    There was pure ICS released until ICS MIUI was finished, its probably unlikely unless you do it yourself.

    Bring raw JB to the device.

    If you want to 'do it yourself', you better have kernel source, no? Oh i forgot, Xiaomi does not release that.

    Why would you buy an Xiaomi phone if you wanted to run other things then MIUI? There are plenty of other phones that have a HUGE international development community.

    The hardware and design is nothing short of amazing, and 4.3 screen is my maximum.

    Fair enough, but probably won't happen with Xiaomi phones yet.

    Has anyone contacted Xiaomi to release the source code??
    HTC, Samsung ...etc they all release their kernel source code, after all, Android is about open source

    There in China. There is barely legal boundaries there. How do you think they make a phone that looks identical to an iPhone? Uses hardware that is deemed "iPhone only" and continues to produce software that Apple would love to sue.

    You can try.

    Please read the topic or at least few posts above before asking such question.

    It was released just to test ICS prior to MIUI v4. It was not on purpose and probably won't happen again.

    I dont think miui has modified the kernel.. why? because i dont see any changelog that is kernel related in miuiandroid weekly updates.. even their latest device is a garbage... because they dont know how to code directly into the hardware eventhough qualcomm has provided SDK.

    another thing why MIUI is not the low level guy (kernel) is how their mem use is hight they are focused on java heavily.. most programmers know java is a resource hog while C/C++ is resource wise. most their apps are not using native.

    this is very amusing they keep closed source but they dont know how to fix bugs in low level (kernel).. more over their are using samsung base (closed source) how can they fix bugs with closed source (it doesnt make sense).
