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 :D

miui with adw launcher doesnt bother me. i still hate the iphone-like setting menus but with the amazing battery life i get i can live with them.

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.

I'm really hoping it works out ;)

Finally somebody noticed the M9's ROM.

I am a Chinese,so I can tell something: Meizu is a company of China.

LBE is an UNOFFICIAL team which porting Android to M8(a WinCE based phone,has the almost same UI like M9).

Maybe you can cantact with the LBE team (they are active at bbs.meizu.com) for some help.

That's all,and sorry for my poor English. : )

Had a Meizu M8 for almost a year, so I know what´s going on there...
..would be of course very interesting, to test a M9 Rom on N1,...but I think just to test.

I tried taking some of the APKs from Meizu to MIUI.. like Filemanager, Launcher2, calculator..
And only calculator works.. :p.. It seems better than default.. ;)
Lets see what all apps can run..

But I am still waiting for the M9 ROM port.. :)
