NOOK Tablet Now Gets MIUI 2.2.3 ROM for Android
The custom ROM for Android called MIUI can now be ported to the Barnes and Noble NOOK tablet. MIUI, which is based on a Chinese translated version of the Android OS, offers a unique experience for Android users by bringing in a modified notification window, app launcher, and home screen.
The interface is comparable to Apple’s iOS or even Samsung’s TouchWiz and it runs at fast speeds. There are also custom apps like the Dialer, Contacts, Browser, and Music app plus other additional features that are unavailable for stock Android users.
The test version available for the Nook tablet is based from on CyanogenMod for the NOOK tablet as well as successful ports of MIUI for devices like the NOOK Color and the Kindle Fire.
MIUI can be obtained by first installing ClockworkMod Recovery on the tablet. Then, users must get the NT MIUI zip file from the xda-developers forum. This file should be copied onto the tablet or on a microSD card, after which, a reboot must be performed.
Users are advised to make a backup of the system in case a need for a restoration arises. Then, users must install the file from the SD card or internal storage. They must then choose the factory reset option from ClockworkMod Recovery. A final reboot is then needed to be able to load MIUI.
Users, however, must be warned that this should be done at their own risk as there is no support available if anything goes wrong.
