CyanogenMod 9 and MIUI 4 ported to Tegra powered HTC One X


Growing tired of HTC Sense 4.0 on your Tegra 3 powered HTC One X? Over the weekend, the Android development community managed to get CyanogenMod 9 and MIUI 4 up and running on HTC’s quad-core flagship phone. As always, the first versions of these ROMs are not perfect.

CyanogenMod 9 is slow to connect to 3G and currently does not feature any camera or WiFi hotspot capabilities. On the plus side, the developers have remapped the buttons on the HTC One X so that the multitasking button now acts as the menu button. This eliminated the black menu bar which would appear across the bottom of the screen on applications which were not optimized for Android 4.0.

While MIUI may not have as many fans as CyanogenMod, a leaked beta of MIUI 4 for the One X is fully functional. The developers managed to keep the stock HTC camera, gallery and music (including Beats Audio) applications in order to retain the unique media capabilities of the HTC One X.

If you’re the adventurous type, click on the source links below and install a custom ROM on your Tegra 3 powered HTC One X. Are any of you planning on running custom ROMs on your HTC One X or will you be sticking to the stock HTC Sense 4.0 experience?

      For a phone that’s not out yet? I’m sure they’ll get to it in time when it actually comes out.

    If i get the phone, i will not run roms on it…okay im lying, lol. I’ll run a rom once i get tired of sense after 2-3 months.

    I honestly think MIUI is not as popular as it used to be. Themes are cool & all but I think they need something else to boost them.

      I tried MIUI for a time on my Desire Z. It was nice but just not as good and with less features as CyanogenMod. I also HATED the fact that there wasn’t an app drawer.

      I’ll never be going back. If they released their SMS app in the market though I’d buy that in a second as it’s easily the best one I’ve used.

    I’ve been using MIUI on my G2 for about a year now. Not sure if I’d want to ditch Sense 4.0 if I had the One X, but I love the MIUI apps and the settings toggles within the notification bar are amazing.

    Slight correction, 3rd paragraph. MIUI instead of MUIU

    Was contemplating gifting this to my brother. Thanks, now my wallet is gonna shrink for sure!

    Nice, that was quick.

    I think CM9 would be awesome on the One X, especially for those who are not a great fan of Sense but want all the benefits of a Quad core ICS phone.

    If I had one, chances are that this might be the ROM for me.

    The one thing that might keep me as Sense user would be HTC Watch, especially with their 5p (5c) deals at the weekends, for me this and Friends streams are the best 2 features of Sense 4.0 the rest personally, I could leave.

    Why is it that when I watch the Demo of the MIUI ROM all I can visualize is the failed execution of the North Koreans recent missile test (Epic Fail!) I remember seeing shots of the control room that the NK croonies were using on what looked like outdated 70′s vintage computers to display missile information. Looks like the screen shots of the MIUI ROM…Too funny!
