If you are looking for a custom Android 4.2.2 ROM that gives you an entirely different experience than TouchWiz, Google Play Edition, and AOSP, definitely there’s a ROM for that called MIUI ROM.

For those of you new to custom ROMs on Android, MIUI is built by Chinese company Xaiomi, who got their feet wet on Android by making their own skinned version of Android different from everyone else. (Xaiomi did go a step further and now makes Xaiomi phones you can buy in China.)

Without a doubt, MIUI ROM has the best theme engine of all custom ROMs for Android in general. And yes, this MIUI ROM for Galaxy S4 is fully functional with pretty much everything working out of the box (except for IR sensor and TV Out). While still beta, you will still be able to enjoy 99% of MIUI ROM features like its theme capability where you can literally download hundreds of free themes including Sense, TouchWiz, and iPhone themes.

MIUI ROM features its own set of apps (you can play with) that will open your eyes to a whole new world of Android.

If you are bored of TouchWiz or AOSP look, definitely check out MIUI ROM for this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

What is a Custom ROM?

A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.

With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.

How to Install Custom ROMs

First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.

Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!

    Hey max,

    I have an att s4 and am trying to flash the Miui ROM but every time I load reboot my phone its has a bunch out system ui and NFC error messages that don’t go away so I can run the Setup. Every time I flash my Roms I factory reset and wipe my cache. Can you help?

  3. Shawn says:

    Zaman,

    I had the same issue. I did a full wipe ./system, /cache, /data, /preload and in advanced Dalvik-cache

    Then re-flashed and it worked. I also did the gapps flash after the rom was up

  4. Mike says:

    Hi max. Where you say  “And yes, this MIUI ROM for Galaxy S4 is fully functional with pretty much everything working out of the box” do you mean that the features of the s4 still work like smart stay and air gestures?

    I have an T-mobile s4 and am trying to flash the Miui ROM but every time I load reboot my phone its has a bunch out system ui and NFC error messages that don’t go away so I can run the Setup. Every time I flash my Roms I factory reset and wipe my cache. Can you help?

  8. Castro says:

    I just managed to install the MIUI ROM on my T-Mobile Galaxy S4 and my cellular data doesn’t seem to be working. I can connect to my Wi-Fi and that’s it. Can someone please help me?

    • Dave says:

      Im having the same problem, everything else about this rom for t-mobile S4 is fine except my mobile data does not work. No 4g, lte, 3g, edge, nothing. please help.

  9. Nick says:

    Hmm, I’m running on a rooted i9508.
    Managed to get the ROM installed too.
    Was “stuck” at the “MI” load screen for a loooong while, then I chose to format everything as listed.
    On the next boot, everything was running smooth.
    Went on to install the gapps and now everything I loading as I type.
    Fingers crossed, it should be up and I will know if the China Mobile 3G works on this ROM soon.
    If I didn’t post any updates, it means it’s working fine.
    😉

    • Nick says:

      To whoever is keen on the ROM but still having CMCC 3G,
      It DOES NOT work.
      I chose 3G preferred but have not managed to get 3G as yet.
      🙁

      • Max Lee says:

        I had to change APN to PTA to get data working, it will work eventually.

        • Nick says:

          How do I do that?

          • Nick says:

            oh, china mobile has cmnet as apn.
            but everything is running on 2G on the new ROMs.
            i dun suppose changing to PTA will work fir china network
            (i’m using the phone in china)

            • Nick says:

              This is where the tricky bit starts.
              Apparently China Mobile has 2G and 3G under different networks.
              So we can change them under network operators.
              However everytime I try to go manual selection of operators and after searching, the “com.android.processes” stops and it brings me out of the previous screen.
              From then onwards, I’m stuck with no network and the worse part is I cannot select the option back to automatic selection.
              Have been reinstalling the ROM over and over again to try to see if it works but everytime it fails me.
              🙁
