Samsung Nexus S gets official MIUI ROM with Ice Cream Sandwich

Fans of the popular MIUI ROM can rejoice, as the team has just released their official version of the ROM based on Ice Cream Sandwich for the Nexus S. Much of it appears to be the same as the Gingerbread version, but all the new features and fixes are under the hood. A change log is included below for anyone looking to get the full rundown of what’s new.

Some of the newer features include support for online back-ups, as well as a few new widgets. While the first device, it shouldn’t be too long before we see more devices with the new software. Anyone looking to try it out can find it at the XDA source link, and see all the instructions to flash. Planning on trying it out? Waiting for CyanogenMod 9? Let us know in the comments!
