The HTC One X, get’s MIUI! The best, deserves the best and with the splendid screen size the One X comes with, MIUI – an already aesthetically perfect ROM – is bound to make some noise. For those of you wondering if this is the real deal, well no. The ROM is a Beta version that was put up on XDA-Developers earlier on but was taken down. This, is that exact beta. Of course a few things in it have been changed, thanks to the efforts of Leventc over at MIUI Android. Installation isn’t exactly the typical procedure you come across for flashing custom ROMs, but it’s not the hardest either. Read on for more on the ROM, and how to install it on your One X.

- Permission Manager ROOT Permission has been fixed.
- Lockscreen is English.
