Therefore, we have an Official build of MIUI v5 up here ready to be flashed onto your devices!


MIUI v5 is an aftermarket firmware developed by the MIUI community and widely used as the stock firmware for Xiaomi devices. Xiaomi has been on a roll very recently and MIUI has always been the favorite when it comes to please the user. It’s a heavily skinned UI with some nice tricks of it’s own and with this build having almost every thing working, you’re just steps away from having this beautifully crated User Interface onto your Nexus 4!

Done with that, let’s have a look at how you can get this ROM running on your Nexus 4.
