As we all know android is open source everything in android can be customized. Miui and many other roms have proved this by making roms in which notification bars, menus etc are way so much customized and different from AOSP rom.

Why dont developers make ditto copy of iOS 7 custom rom with all the visuals animations same as like iOS 7 ?

They dont make it because its illegal? or no one got time to make this kind of rom?

I think it's too hard to make a dedicated ROM than just some of the themes or launchers.

Because IOS was closed source, it's hard to port or copy perfectly into android

I think it's because the ios isn't an open source operating system, and apple wouldn't support something like this, so it's very hard to extract the necessary files. Because of these 2 reasons, no one is even trying to get a system dump from iphones. At least that's what I believe....still, the android is much better.

I am sure Ios is not a free rom . It is developed and controllable by apple .
It is not an open source project . So copying is illeagel .
Apple is more strict than other providers .


Click thanks if I helped
