    OK.. ive read around there is this ROM called 'JoyOS' and it is available for MDPI/HDPI and can be in english or chinese, and it looks like iOS..
    There are alot of guides out there on how to port it, but is it possible on our phone?

    Also, i know the two major devs around here (Borai + Req) don't like doing dirty ports, but is this possible to do on our phone???

    Lewa os leans more towards the miui feel as where joy os virtually gives you an iPhone

    I think its cm7 based like miui gb. If you guys want I can try to port it. Roms like this dont have source so a "dirty port" is the only way to get it to work. I think it would be easy to port.

    haha yeah ive been working on lewaOS for a while now, i made the thread a while back but I've just been debugging and trying to make the build a little more stable. it boots and has some FC's and bugs but for the most part runs really smooth like miui. I havent really looked into joyOS but if its as easy as leewa then you could have it booting in less than a day..
