    Question NOOB to Android. Question about MIUI ?

    Hi Everyone,

    I've just recently moved from iPhone to Android (had no choice) and have to say the only thing i like is the customisation of my Atirx... hate everything else.

    I was looking at the 'Screenshots' thread and noticed lots of people talking about ROM and MIUI.

    I just wanted to know what it is.

    It sounds really complicated so I don't think as such a newbie to Andorid I should be trying it.

    Is it like 'jailbreaking' the iPhones?

    Any simplified answers would be really appreciated.

    Cheers

    The MIUI ROM is a custom ROM. Once the source code for the Atrix 4G was released, it gave way to developers customizing their own software to run on the phone.

    In order to run a custom ROM like MIUI, you have to unlock the bootloader for the phone. This does void the warranty, so you are cookies once you do this. I would have a backup phone handy in the event that the unlocking process does not go well, if you choose to go this route.

    Unlocking bootloaders is NOTHING like jailbreaking an iPhone.
