I know many people would enjoy this ROM, it's kind of like MIUI. The engineering rom was just recently released for the Meizu M9.

It can be downloaded here -

I also found this xip.bin + LBE_Android Folder (don't know if it's of any help or not): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NCZ8NKHB

I was hoping someone could try and port this to N1. It would definitely be a top ROM (I read that it support English by default, though i maybe wrong)



Here are some links you may want to check out and see it's beautiful UI!

I've always hated MIUI for some reason; maybe it's because as a dual iPhone user it kind of felt like a poor man's iOS. But this? This looks incredibly polished. I mean very, very polished. Would like to see how it looks but I know that the inconsistency between this and other Android apps will break the effect.

Edit: I'd personally would like to see someone take the current Android creative direction and polish up what's already there.

Agree, I hate MIUI because of its wannabe iPhone look, but this just looks freakin' awesome, clean and colorful!

Hopefully some devs will get interested...no matter if the rest of the android apps won't follow

You can change the iPhone style menu by going to Settings-->Personal Tab-->Menu settings..

People don't seem to be porting much of anything to the Nexus at the time. The only real "port" we have is Sense (All of the Sense's).. I would love to see something other than stock Android on the Nexus, especially with a nicely designed UI.

I personally love MIUI, despite it's iPhone like appearance -- all the functionality of Android with the plain, somewhat boring, UI revamped.

I downloaded the update.zip but it doesn't have a boot.img. The build.prop says this: ro.build.display.id=meizu_m9-eng 2.2 FRF91. Its probably a Froyo hybrid of sorts? I've been able to port a few ROM's for my personal testing, but I usually need the boot.img which the update.zip doesn't have. I'm downloading the M9 ROM.zip now which is really huge at 471mb. Don't know if that has boot.img. Maybe a FRF91 boot.img might work. I'll have to play around with it with no guarantee's.

Well I couldn't get it to boot using a FRF91 boot image. If somebody can find the the boot.img maybe we can get it to boot to play around with it.
