MIUIHO - Inferior Human Organs Gingerbread with a taste of MIUI

So after a while of looking for a way to port MIUI to the Optimus V, and failing miserably, I decided to create my own MIUI port-ish ROM.

The concept of this ROM is combining the stability and features of IHO mixed with the stylish look of MIUI.

This is just a little taste of what it will look like:



MIUI Gallery
MIUI Music
MIUI Compass
MIUI Launcher (based on qqlauncher)
Touchwiz3.0 Launcher
Transparent StatusBar
File Expert (File Manager)
MIUI Widgets
Miren Browser
Transparency Patch
WidgetLocker Themes
Custom MIUI Wallpapers
Custom MIUI lockscreen backgrounds
GOSMS and Go Contacts
MIUI Ringtones and Alarms

Things I still need to work on:


Adding more MIUI apps ported to MDPI as I find them.


Download the ROM Here =>

(Mandatory!) Download Extra Files for MIUI-look and feel here =>

Latest gapps=>

Stock Apps in case you want them back=>


1. Flash the in recovery mode (remeber this is IHO/Backside. please use the IHO Recovery just in case)

2. Flash gapps

3. Reboot

4. Go through usual Startup Setup

5. Choose your launcher

6. DON'T FREAK OUT! Everything looks stock, I know.

7. Go to your app launcher and launch Theme Chooser

8. (Obviously) Choose MIUI theme.

9. Download, if you haven't already, and extract to the root of your SD card.

10. Reboot into recovery again.

11. Flash the zip called "statusbar_patch" in the TRANS folder.

12. Reboot system

13. TA-DA! Transparent statusbar with MIUI icons and launcher! MIUIHO is ready!

14. Go to GOSMS Pro and set it up, if not you will not get your texts (thanks pbailey212 for reminding me)


15. Install HTC_IME keyboard of your choice from the "HTC_IME Keyboards" folder found in the sdcard. (Images of keyboards below)

Green with Black:

White with Blue:

16. If you have WidgetLocker, you can install a custom MIUI slider like the one in the screenshots. These sliders are found in the folder "WidgetLocker Themes" in your SDcard. There are different colors for more customization

QQLauncher Transparency & Themes (Thanks dr.notor)

"Hold your finger on the home screen for a while. Select Wallpapers from menu. From the next menu, select Live wallpapers. From the next menu, select MultiPicture Live Wallpaper. On next screen, tap on Settings, go to Common Settings - Picture Source. From the popup menu, choose either Single Picture or Picture Folder. On the prompt, do not forget to check "Use by default for this actions" and tap on MIUI Gallery. Go to wallpapers folder, choose a wallpaper, duh! Press back several times until you get back to the Set wallpaper screen. Tap on Set wallpaper. You are back to your homescreen."

Themes for QQ Launcher can be found here=> THEMES!


As you can see, I've added 3 different launchers, this is due to the fact that some people may prefer the MIUI Launcher(qqlauncher) look instead of the Touchwiz Launcher, or vice-versa.I decided to include the 3 for more customization. When you first install the ROM, you will have the option to choose which one you want after you setup your Google account.

Also, if you want to restore the stock apps, just download the and restore them using File Expert. If you need more info on how to do this, just post a comment and I'll write detailed instructions!


This ROM is based on Jerryscript's 8/25/11 build of IHO

Thanks to blarfiejandro for IHO ROM, SWEATAIMI for his guide on creating Custom ROMS, dax4182 for the TOUCHWIZ launcher and the people at the MIUI Forums

Glad you like it! Maybe I'll change some things to make it look better overall. Some things I'am considering is changing the notification area colors so that it matches the overall look of the ROM. Any suggestions?

I'd love to see something that shows battery percentage, but I suppose that's kind of anti miui, lol

Actually the battery icon on top shows battery percentage, but since it was charging when I took the screenshot, it didn't show the battery percentage lol!

I' am still not sure if I should stick with the original MIUI icons, and Touchwiz 3.0 (used in the creenshots) or go with LauncherPro and use the SuaveHD icons!

Looking forward to trying it out. Would a circle battery be implementable?

Or if not, I imagine the framework files can be altered by UOT kitchen

Kind of a dick question, but might it be easier to make a theme for iho? Either way I like the look.
