Google has released the source code for its highly anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich some two months back, several developers have been restlessly experimenting in order to bring a range of Custom ROMs for those running certain Android devices.
CyanogenMod based custom ROM is called MIUI, and is one of the most popular custom builds to its awesome and distinct interface. Additional features such as better notification menu, enhanced Camera, Gallary and Music Apps as well.
We already shown you how to install MIUI on your HP TouchPad tablet, with the help of XDA-Developers, and however you can now install it on your Samsung Galaxy S II (S2). It’s well customized build, which will not disturb any basic functions in order to experience it, usually we are not too keen to advise you to test these custom ROMs on your primary device, because they are often full of bugs and unstable. This particular ROM is at version 2.1, so many of the usual caveats found in early alpha releases have been resolved.
If you already installed CyanogenMod on your Galaxy S II before, then you’ll need to boot into ClockworkMod Recovery, wipe /data and /cache partitions, before installing the downloaded .zip file from install zip from sdcard menu: similar work done in our previous tutorial: how to install CyanogenMd 7 (Alpha 3).
This the first time installing CyanogenMod, don’t panic, since installing MIUI on Galaxy S II isn’t that much difficult, You can check this guide how to install CyanogenMod (Alpha 11) for information on how you can install it with an ease.
