MIUI ROM is one of the sweetest and elegant ROM for our Android devices out there today. If you own a Samsung Fascinate and have been craving to run an MIUI ROM on your device for a while now, your prayers have been answered. The Fascinate finds itself unlucky in the matter of MIUI developers support for this device, but XDA-Developers forum member andmer has put together a ROM that is based on CM7, and MIUI.US base ROMs to come up with MIUI FascinateMTD.

Update: MIUI.US has released an official MIUI ROM for the Fascinate. MIUI v4 as it is called is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is available for Fascinate owners to download. The download link is Samsung Fascinate MIUI 1.6.24 provided below and the instructions remain the same as long as you’re coming from an Android 2.3 Gingerbread firmware. For more on the ROM you can refer to this changelog here.

The ROM has been around for a while now and recently been updated to v1.6.24, running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. The ROM, has a few issues at the moment and we’ll tell you exactly what those are I a bit. For now, if you’re not familiar with MIUI ROMs, see our guide on MIUI ROMs and what they’re all about. For a complete list of changelog on MIUI 1.6.24, visit the changelog page at MIUI.US.

The ROM offers the following features functioning for now:

  • Calls, SMS, Bluetooth, 3G / Data and Wi-Fi works.
  • Camera / Camcorder, USB mass storage, GPS and sensors work.

Note that when you receive calls or texts, the phone is not woken up after it has gone to sleep, meaning you will not be notified through a ring. If you’re willing to not let this be an issue, you can also download SoftLocker from the Market, which prevents your device from sleeping.
