MIUI v5 exists in 2 versions, the official MIUI version based on touchwiz 4.1.2 and a 4.4 port (I think it's based on SlimRom). The port isn't on a Samsung base so it lacks touchwiz specific features such as the multiwindow etc.
The latest version for the Note 2 of MIUI v5 is 4.8.8. (LINK
). Due to the release of MIUI v6, support for the Note 2 will be stopped after 4.8.8, so it will be the final version of MIUI v5. The official statement says:
Official Xiaomi statement:
MIUIers, we hope to focus on improving MIUI based on Android 4.4 in the future, so we've decided that MIUI V5 update for the following devices will be stopped after MIUI 4.8.8: i9100 / i9300 / MX2 / Note2 / HTC OneX / Find5 / HTC One / Nubia Z5S(mini). It's really a tough decision. If the above devices get Android 4.4 from the original factory in the future, we'll consider supporting them again. Hope you understand. Thanks.
Since 4.4 has been available for the Note 2 for quite some time now, the above explanation sounds a bit weird. Rumors are that MIUI v6 will use 4.4 touchwiz as a base. We will see on the 16th of August, the date on which MIUI v6 will be revealed, it should be available shortly after that for flashers.
Hope this helps, I can't wait for the reveal
