Yesterday, we brought you an English MIUI ROM for the HTC Desire HD and today, we are happy to bring you one for the HTC Desire. For those of you who are not familiar with the MIUI ROM, it is a custom Android ROM that brings features of the iPhone’s iOS interface to Android devices. Read on for the download link and installation instructions.
Despite originally being in Chinese language, the MIUI ROM has become quite popular amongst Android users because of its user interface. It attempts to turn your Android phone’s interface into that of the iPhone while retaining all the powerful features of the Android operating system.
This version for the HTC Desire is the work of the developers at miui-dev.com and was shared by XDA-Developers forum member vecc. It is at version 0.12.31 and comes with the English language pack as a separately installable zip file.
