Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread MIUI ROM Available For IDEOS X6

Advertisement

Huawei IDEOS X6 is mid-tier Android phone and recently a section on XDA was dedicated to this phone’s development and hacking. In my opinion, the phone emerged quite victorious in a market ruled by HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and LG. The IDEOS X6 came with AOSP Android 2.2 Froyo on board and due to the fact that not much exposure was given to this phone on Android forums and portals,there wasn’t noteworthy development. As soon as the phone acquired a dedicated section on XDA forums, we can see that developers are emerging for this phone. MIUI custom ROMs are the most favored custom Android firmware when it comes to aesthetics, usability and stability. And recently this ROM made it to X6!

MIUI-X6

The latest MIUI version is 1.9.9 that comes with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. This version has been ported on Huawei IDEOS X6 by TJ_Style. Currently the port is in it’s initial stages and following is the stuff that works after flashing this ROM on IDEOS X6:

  • 2D / 3D Acceleration

  • USB tethering
  • Camera
  • ADB

Comparing the functionalities that work with those that don’t, we can safely assume that this MIUI Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread build can act as your daily driver. The developer behind this post is consistently supporting the release and we can foresee a fully working MIUI 1.9.9 build for Huawei IDEOS X6 in near future.

After you have root and recovery installed on your device, head to the XDA MIUI development thread for X6 posted here for related downloads and step by step installation instructions.
