Xiaomi working on MIUI 7 with AOKP
Android ROM developers like Cyanogen and ParanoidAndroid have been partnering with hardware manufacturers to help these phone makers differentiate themselves in a crowded and competitive marketplace. Today, Team Kang at AOKP announced that it will be working with Xiaomi as the latter starts work on MIUI 7.

MIUI 7 will be based on Android 5.1 and will debut on the Xiaomi Mi 5. The UI is known internally as MiKangy and is expected to combine all of the features available with Cyanogen, PA, Omni and AOKP. According to a post on the Team Kang website, MIUI 7 will allow users to "create an experience which completely submerges the user in his own world."

MIUI 7 will be designed to evolve with the user and this will allow each Mi 5 owner to have different, personal experiences with the phone. The latest speculation involving the Mi5 calls for the handset to be released during the fourth quarter of this year.

As long as they're allowed to work independently like they've been doing it should benefit both. Xiaomi can help the dev community by providing test devices and also with funds to keep the project going.
