    hi

    im on cm7 nightly on a gs2 at the moment, but im getting a little fed up with the bugs. last night i just got it exactly how i want it then woke up this morning and there is no carrier or wifi signal.

    how stable is miui and what has made you choose it over other roms ? and does it have fm radio working ?

    thx

    Its the best, thats why.

    Once your on MIUI, you can never leave. The other ROMs can't compare to MIUI. Try it for a week, and I guarantee you'll love it.

    I have the DHD and it has radio, someone will have to verify for your phone.

    I'd say it's almost perfectly stable on my phone with a few exceptions (sometimes freezes at lock screen when music is playing). I think MIUI is the best looking ROM available. Not sure if FM radio works for GS2.

    This is generally why you don't use nighties...

    As a flash addict, there is a great appeal in flashing nightlies :)

    Trick with flashing nightlies is make nandroid backups often. And Label the ones that are stable, so when you flash a new nightly and it is not stable, you drop back to a previous build until the next one comes out to try. I mean, seriously, every one needs a hobby, right? ;)

    But as for why Miui? Miui is kinda like the best of all worlds, it is a mix of the best features of many different os's. It has s the great customizations of cyanogen mod. It is good looking, and there are a lot of custom skins ready for use. It is generally very stable and updated weekly.

    But for me, what I like the most is that it is organized well. I think it is the organization that I like the best. If I said it "felt right" or that it is organized in a way that made sense intuitively to how I think - that would probably be it. Try it and play around with it a bit. Go into the theme manager and download some themes and skin it how you like. Have fun.

    the stable for the gs2 was withdrawn. nightlies are the only choice. im on 105 now and its fine so far apart from fm radio not working.

    Installation guide for Miui?

    There are probably posts on here about that :)

    But a quick reader's quide summary......
    ** This assumes you have root and recovery set up**

    - Download the rom to your computer for your phone from the Roms link above
    - Connect phone to PC and copy rom to your sd card.
    - Boot phone into recovery.
    - Wipe - do factory wipe, make sure you wipe cache, dalvik, and /system and /boot the first time you load the rom so there is nothing left on the phone. (Format /system and /boot in mounts and storage using cwm recovery)
    - Install the rom. Usually the choice is install zip from sd card. Pick the rom file you downloaded and install it
    - Reboot system when it is done flashing.

    There you go. Have fun!

    I don't think FM Radio will be working. The MIUI guys use cm7 as a base.
