The Incredible 2 has started pacing itself quiet nicely in the world of custom ROMs. One of these custom ROMs being the MIUI ROM, where the Incredible 2 started off with an unofficial port of the MIUI ROM and then found itself official supported by MIUI.us as it got itself the the MIUI 1.7.8. Being official supported now, the Incredible 2 has just recently received the latest 1.7.15 build, which is a test build for now and based on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.
Incase you have no clue what MIUI ROMs are, head over to our guide on what is MIUI ROM for Android to familiarize yourself with the ROM. The ROM may be a test build for now, but has some improvements to offer. Such as the front camera, that has now been fixed and works. The previous builds has a mono audio issue that seems to have been fixed as well according to a user. As for the bugs, here they are as reported:
- Compass reverses North and South.
- No dial pad when updating PRL (*228). Long press MENU after programming calls starts, that will bring up the keyboard.
- In call volume is low.
- Keyboard press doesn’t vibrate.
- Mic on wired headset inoperable during call.
- When taking a picture in the camera app, the preview image looks distorted for about 2 seconds right after pressing the shutter button. The actual picture taken is fine, when looking at it in the gallery, so the problem is just with the photo preview.
