    I installed Cyanogen Mod 7 a while back and I haven't gotten used to it. I don't really care for it too much so I want to install MIUI. I'm confused about how to do it (I suppose I don't understand the vocabulary or the processes as well as I thought I did). Can someone explain how to safely remove CM7 and install MIUI?

    There are a couple guides linked in the all things root guide ( http://androidforums.com/incredible...-root-guides-threads-updated-3-26-2012-a.html )

    This is a good one though:

    So I tried installing MIUI 2.11.9 from roms.miui.us. My procedures were:

    Charging phone to 100%
    Confirm that the md5 was the same
    Booting into CWM
    Performing a backup
    Clearing data, cache, and dilvik cache
    Installing from the zip card

    but when I did this, I got an error message saying

    "symlink: some symlinks failed
    E:Error in rom location/miui.zip
    (Status 7)
    Error flashing zip..."

    Then it aborted. I tried clearing the cache again but no luck. I was able to restore from the backup but I'm still kind of unhappy with CM7. I tried finding the solution on the net but I couldn't. Has this happened to anyone before?

    I booted into CWM Recovery and it says it's running v5.0.2.0. It appears that its really out of date but I can't seem to find how to properly update it. Everything I find has to do with ROM Manager, which according to the Play Store, is up to date.

    5.0.2.0 is the latest version for the incredible....

    try this version of MIUI:
    MIUI v4 ICS (6-1-2012))

    The file isn't found in the OP. One user said:

    "Mark is no longer developing this rom, so his post will likely remain out-dated until a moderator fixes it.
    To get the latest MIUI rom (2.9.7), you can use Rom Manager, or follow this link http://roms.miui.us/"

    but that was in Sept. of 2012.

    I don't have to flash MIUI. I just want a ROM that works and is stable. My biggest grievance with CM7 is that I cannot send picture messages without manually turning on 3G. Do you have a suggestion for another ROM that works well with my dinc?

    i've seen a few people post that they have been running the "touch of blue" rom for the Incredible. The last ROM i flashed on mine was a jelly bean rom, but I did it just to see how it worked, I don't use my Incredible as a phone anymore and I rarely turn on it on ( only to experiment).
