Samsung Galaxy Nexus gets official MIUI ROM
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is still probably the hottest Android handset out there, and it accounts for a huge part of the active Ice Cream Sandwich devices out there, and now you’ve got one more reason to consider it - it’s gotten an official and stable version of the MIUI ROM

MIUI is one of the most popular custom ROMs for Android and many would say that it’s the best looking one. It somewhat reminisces the user interface of iOS as it doesn’t have an app drawer. That makes it stand out among other ROMs as well, and it’s also very distinct in its simplicity. You could, of course, install a different launcher to get the standard Android app drawer if you prefer.

So what works in this official build? It’d be easier to point out what doesn’t - themes for example require you to reboot and pull the battery in order to work. Everything else should be fine. Check out the screen grabs below and if you like what you see head on to the source for the download links and detailed installation instructions.

MIUI team officially supports this device, like CM team officially supports many... Just to say the team works on it, not someone 'porting' this rom.
If you'd develop a rom for a particular device, it's official bro! (Nothing to do with some Google approval or sthg)

I have a Galaxy Nexus and I've tried MIUI rom and I'm just not a fan. Instead, I use GummyNex running Nova Launcher and Franco Nightly Kernel. I find it to be much better and a lot more stable.
