MIUI Gingerbread 2.4.20-RC2 for Galaxy Mini/Pop GT-S5570


This is one of my favorites!This Rom by xda senior member ahmadsafar has some amazing features.It is packed with aroma installer which just makes you fall in love with the whole installation process.You can choose from a ton of things ranging from which kernel to use between cyanmobile and cyangonemod 7, the boot animation, the sd ext support and many such things.Other options include installing with minimal, recommended, typical and custom settings .Though some people are saying that RC1 was better and smoother but i dont think so.If you install with minimal settings it works great.The MIUI interface is really well resized and each and everything works.The camera is awesome and has some features such as anti shake, delay snap, burst, etc.So, i would really recommend you try this one as it is really really stylish and stable as well.So, here’s the changelog, screenshots, and flashing instructions.
