MIUI v4 ICS for the HTC EVO 4G nearing beta

Photo from Addictivetips.com / Nexus S ICS piece as there are no 4G MIUI pics out yetFor fans of MIUI, a Chinese-developed iOS-inspired ROM, it's about to be a very good day. The team announced that they now have boot on MIUI v4 (based on Google's Ice Cream Sandwich source) for the HTC EVO 4G, with working camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc.

Along with duplicating the EVO 4G function set and interface MIUI users have enjoyed, MIUI v4 should be bringing a host of ICS enhancements to the table.

While there was no mention of 4G support, we can sort of assume that there will be none until at least such time as it's worked out by ICS porters or released by HTC, and perhaps not even then if history has been any indication.

While some of you can't live without 4G, for Sprint users who were sold on it, most still don't have access to it and will not due to the planned discontinuation of 4G/WiMax. MIUI built up a very strong 3G-only EVO 4G following in the past without 4G, and seemed to wear it as a badge of pride that they weren't able to incorporate it.

    Paul, people seem to be forgetting that “Camera working” does not equal “Cameras working.” See what I did there? There’s two cameras on the EVO 4G, and unfortunately I need them BOTH to work. Any idea whether this has BOTH working or just the 8MP one on back?

    not a clue – front facing one’s never been an issue of mine as I never use it, and since it’s not in beta yet (and my EVO 4G is fried til I can find a place to fix it or a used one) I can’t do anything more than write what I find.

    I don’t know if I trust a rom made in China. I just don’t trust them not to send my credit card information and other important info back to them. I’ll just wait for cm9 thank you.

    MIUI is the largest and most popular custom ROM on the planet.

    I do not believe MIUI has ever been accused of phoning home or stealing information.

    HTC Sense is the most popular ROM that comes from manufacturers.
    HTC / Carrier IQ / etc is now under investigation for wiretapping charges (spying on you)
    HTC is a Chinese-based company (Taiwan)

    I’d say your odds are better with MIUI at the moment…

    If you’re not afraid of most of the apps that are available, that steal your personal info. Then you’re safe with Miui. I just wish they had a rom for the Xoom.

    According to rumor, it will follow after most of the ICS ports are done.
