MIUI is an undisputed king in the world of custom Android ROMs, and you would be hard-pressed to find too many Android fanboys who’ll deny this particular fact. The Chinese-based custom ROM not only offers you an iOS-esque home screen experience, but also sports plenty of flavors of custom lock screens, each supplemented with a multitude of visual and functional facets. Adding to its feature richness and already-quite-extensive customizability, the iOS-inspired MIUI custom ROM for Android has, in its latest version (1.6.17), included support for lock screen mods. That is, in addition to the lock screen skin and background customization that previous versions allowed, you can now apply lock screen styles with custom UI and unlock options. The six lock screen mods currently available look absolutely peachy (screenshots and download link after the break). Let’s hope theme devs keep rolling out more.
The designs of the new lock screen styles seem to be inspired from those of Android 3.0 Honeycomb, iOS and its clone, Meizu M9.
You can search for these lock screen mods from within MIUI’s native Theme Manager application (Theme Manager > Edit Theme Settings > Lock Screen > Online Lock Screen or download all six of the currently available from the link provided below, copy them to the /MIUI/theme/ directory and apply them from within Theme Manager > Edit Theme Settings > Lock Screen.
The mods are a welcome addition to the ROM, indeed. Theme devs have already begun to alter, skin and incorporate these new lock screen styles into their themes.
