Suggested December 2023 Miui V4 For Galaxy Nexus — Viciousmiui

Here we go again, with another awesome looking Custom ROM from the MIUI stable. And this time, it’s for the reigning favorite of Android phones, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus! This fresh build of MIUI v4 based on Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0.3, comes to us from DroidVicious, a recognized developer in Android world.

This version is a port based on a fresh build right out of China, the home of MIUI, and has been tweaked and performance-enhanced by DroidVicious. The ROM is fully functional, except for a minor issue with applying themes — which to be honest, is not something that I would let come in the way of trying out this awesome new ROM. And in any case, the dev has also provided a workaround to be able to do it — so no sweat.


The steps and methods included in this guide are considered risky. Please do not attempt to try this unless you know exactly what you are doing, as it may render your device unusable, and your pocket lighter by the amount it takes to replace it. You have been forewarned!!!


This ROM is compatible only and only with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Please do not attempt to flash it on any other device. We are not responsible for any damage that may be caused to your device.

Miui V4 For The Droid Incredible 2

MIUI again, but who’s complaining? Not me for sure. And this time it’s a v4 build for the Droid Incredible 2. Although Droid Incredible 2 has never been as much popular as its predecessor Droid icredibble was, both in terms of user interest and sales, and development that follows, we think it still deserves the latest coolest roms like MIUI4, and CM9, partly because it’s a successor to Droid incredible and mainly because it’s a member of fabulous Droid community.

Anyway, it’s got its share of one awesome rom, the MIUI 4, which is making its appearance on lots of phones now — now that CM9, on which it’s based, like all MIUI roms have been — has started being nicely ported on lots of devices, too.

In the case of Droid incredible 2, XDA member jmztaylor has just released an alpha build of the ICS MIUI 4 ROM — and because it’s Alpha, be sure to follow the development thread linked in para next to steps below, to keep yourself abreast of latest changes and recent versions of the rom which is only expected to improve by time.

And since I mentioned it’s an Alpha ROM, lets have a quick peek at what works and what is still being worked upon, as quoted from the developer’s thread:

Whats working: Phone Wifi SMS Anything else thats not broke Whats broken: Data Camera ADB crashes on boot once. Because of data being broken You tell me what else

As you can see above, its definitely not something you’re gonna be able to use as a daily driver. But if you have a spare device, it’s definitely worth trying out, if not for anything else, but to see what MIUI ICS looks like on your Droid Incredible 2.

The steps and methods included in this guide are considered risky. Please do not attempt to try this unless you know exactly what you are doing, as it may render your device unusable, and your pocket lighter by the amount it takes to replace it. You have been forewarned!!!

This ROM is compatible only and only with the Droid Incredible 2. Please do not attempt to flash it on any other device. We are not responsible for any damage that may be caused to your device.

Latest Twrp Recovery 3.0 For Galaxy Nexus

Update: Guide has been updated to provide for latest version, TWRP 3.0 for Galaxy Nexus. Enjoy!

We all know that Android 4.2 has already started rolling out earlier this week for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus. While users are busy checking out all the new stuff in Android 4.2, particularly the nifty Photo Sphere mode in the camera app, the developer community has moved past all of that, and has set its sights on other more objective matters.

While all with 4.2 is cool and dandy, it seems to have created a new challenge for the devs, as far as custom recoveries are concerned. The multi-user account feature for Android 4.2 tablets seems to be the cause for this issue, and every time you do a factory reset while on an Android 4.2 ROM, user data file get moved to a different default ing rather than getting wiped. You can find more details on this issue here.

As always, the developer community, in this case Team Win, the team behind the touch-based TWRP recovery have come up with a solution which fixes this irritating issue, and have incorporated the fix in the latest version of TWRP – v2.3.2.1, which is up for download.

And as always, we have put together a handy guide below on how you can install the latest TWRP recovery on your Galaxy Nexus.

Let’s see how to install TWRP recovery on Galaxy Nexus.

SuperSU Root package — Link

Supported devices

Galaxy Nexus, codename maguro (don’t try on toro and toroplus)

Don’t try this one any other device!

Important: Check your device’s model no. on free Android app called Droid Info. If you see the model no. and codename mentioned above in the app, then use this recovery, otherwise not. BTW, you can check model no. device’s packaging box too.


Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.


Backup important files stored on your device before proceeding with the steps below, so that in case something goes wrong you’ll have backup of all your important files.

Step-by-step Guide

Step 1. Download the TWRP recovery and SuperSU file from above. Keep them in a separate folder on PC.

Ignore SuperSU file and the steps below involving it, if you don’t want to root your device, and only wish to install TWRP recovery.

Step 2. Install ADB drivers.

Step 3. Install Galaxy Nexus driver.

Step 4. On your Galaxy Nexus, enable USB debugging. For this:

Go back to Settings, then choose ‘Developer options’. Find the ‘USB debugging’ option and use its toggle button to enable it. Accept warning by tapping on OK button.

Step 5. Connect your Galaxy Nexus to PC now. You will get a pop-up as shown below on your phone when you connect for the first time after enabling USB debugging. Select ‘Always allow from this computer’ checkbox and then tap on OK button.

Step 6. Transfer the SuperSU file to PC.

Step 7. Rename the recovery file to gnex-recovery.img

Step 8. Now, open command window in the folder where you have the chúng tôi file. For this:

You will see a command window open up, with location directed to folder where you have the twrp recovery file.

Step 9. Boot your Galaxy Nexus into Bootloader/Fastboot mode:

Power off your device and wait for 3-4 seconds after screen goes off.

Press and hold Power and Volume down together for 3 seconds and then let go. You’ll enter bootloader mode. And should see FASTBOOT written at top. It’s already in Fastboot mode by default.

Step 10. Test whether fastboot is working alright. For this, run the command given below. (You can also copy paste the command and then use enter key to run it.)

fastboot devices

→ Upon running command below, you should get a serial no. with fastboot written after it. If you don’t get fastboot written on cmd window, then it means you need to reinstall adb and fastboot drivers, or change restart PC, or use original USB cable.

Step 11. Flash Galaxy Nexus TWRP recovery now. Use the following command for that.

fastboot flash recovery gnex-recovery.img

Step 12. TWRP recovery will now be installed on your Galaxy Nexus. When done, reboot into recovery mode. Simply type the command below.

fastboot boot gnex-recovery.img

Step 13. [Optional] You will see TWRP recovery. Now, you must take a full backup of your phone, including system partition. In TWRP, tap on Backup, and then select all partitions. Then do the swipe action at bottom to start the backup process.

Step 14. To Root, tap on Install button, and then browse and select the SuperSU file. Then on next screen, do the Swipe action at bottom to flash the root package.

Step 15. Tap on Reboot System to restart the device. That’s it.

Happy flashing!

How to boot into recovery mode to use TWRP recovery

Well, now that you are rooted, Simply use an app called Quick Boot from the play store. Install the app, and then open it and tap on Recovery to reboot into recovery mode, where you will have TWRP ready for use.

Or you can use the ADB command below, but first make sure that USB debugging is enabled, and device is connected to PC in powered on state.

That’s it.

Google Nexus 9 Vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

Google Nexus 9 review

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

Google’s Nexus 9 features an 8.9-inch LCD display with 2048 x 1536 resolution and a pixel density of 281 ppi. The Tab S features an 8.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1600 resolution and a pixel density of 359 ppi.

Both tablets offer great viewing angles and are extremely sharp. However, the biggest difference between these two tablets is the aspect ratio. The Nexus 9 has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which isn’t too common on tablets for a reason. Letter boxing occurs more than we’d like it to when watching videos or movies, but that’s the sacrifice you’ll need to make when choosing a squarer display. We understand that no aspect ratio is perfect for everyone, as Samsung’s 16:9 ratio has its flaws as well. Holding the tablet in portrait mode is okay, but Internet browsing in landscape on the Tab S isn’t ideal, as not much information can fit on the screen, especially because web pages aren’t usually laid out side-to-side. Additionally, thanks to the Nexus 9’s LCD panel, we’ve experienced a bit of light bleed on the top and bottom of the display. However, that’s nothing you would particularly notice in everyday use.

When it comes to displays, if you want a more natural color display palette, you might want to consider the Nexus 9. But if you’re partial to punchier colors and deeper blacks, the Tab S is for you. What’s more, the Tab S offers a significantly higher pixel density, resulting in an overall clearer display.

The Nexus 9 offers the powerful NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor backed by 2GB of RAM. The Tab S features Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Octacore chipset backed by 3GB of RAM.

Thanks to the Tegra K1, gaming on the Nexus 9 is runs particularly well. We haven’t seen many dropped framerates or stutters in games, so if you’d like a tablet specifically for gaming, the Nexus 9 might be your best bet. Gaming on the Tab S isn’t laggy either, though we can’t help but notice it feels just half of a step slower than the Nexus 9. If you buy one tablet or the other for gaming, you won’t be disappointed with either.

When it comes to performance in software, the two don’t really differ. Thanks to the stock Google experience on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Nexus 9 flies through the software with ease. We didn’t notice many hiccups while scrolling through recent apps, web pages, or really any other aspects of the software. Though the Tab S has many more software features to push around in Samsung’s TouchWiz, it performs surprisingly well.

In case you’re new to the tablet world, software is where these tablets differ more than anything. Google’s Nexus line has always come with a “no-frills” software experience. Nexus devices always run stock Android software, and that can be both a positive and a negative. Without a ton of extra features crammed into the device, the software runs very smoothly. Whether you’re a fan of Android 5.0 Lollipop or not, there’s no arguing that the software experience is one of the most simple and elegant experiences out there. On top of that, this device was made by Google, so it will be one of the first devices to receive any updates that are pushed out to Android.

Samsung takes a vastly different route when it comes to software. We’ve all said it before, and we’ll say it again: TouchWiz is bright, big, colorful, and very busy. From the cluttered Settings panel to the busy notification drop down menu, it’s clear that simplicity isn’t Samsung’s strongest asset. However, it’s cluttered for a reason. With so many extra features crammed into the software, you’ll find some to be extremely useful and others to just take up space. Unfortunately, software updates are pretty scarce with Samsung devices. The Tab S is still running Android 4.4 KitKat. While not too many other manufacturers have pushed out Lollipop updates so far, Samsung is usually last to update their devices. Though it’s a relatively new tablet, the Tab S may not see its Lollipop update for quite some time.

When comparing the two, it should be noted that Samsung is one of the only device manufacturers to actually use a big screen the correct way. Features like Multi-Window that allows for running multiple apps at once, Smart Stay that keeps the screen on when you’re looking at it, and Smart Pause that pauses a video when you look away, really help make for a better media-consuming experience.

Where the Nexus 9 comes up short in the number of features, it makes up for it in design. Android 5.0 Lollipop brings more UI enhancements to Android using Google’s new Material Design language. In Lollipop, everything warrants a movement, whether that be the information on the notification shade moving when you pull it down, or any number of new layers Google has added in to show more depth in the software, it’s all just really good looking. We aren’t sure what Lollipop will bring to Samsung’s TouchWiz, but we do know that it may not get there for quite some time.

All in all, if you’re looking for a tablet that has more features than you can count and incredible multitasking software, the clear choice is the Tab S. But if you’re more partial to the simplistic, elegant and quickly-updated software experience, we’d suggest you go with the Nexus 9. Keep in mind that neither devices’ software experience is perfect, and sacrifices will need to be made with both.

The Nexus 9’s starting price is $399 for the 16GB Wifi-only model. Higher storage options and LTE-connected variants are also available, so be prepared to pay more depending on which option you choose. It’s also available in Black, White, and Sand colors, and can be purchased directly through Google Play, HTCor Amazon.

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 also begins at $400, and can be bought directly through Samsung, or basically any other electronics retailer out there. It’s available in Dazzling White or Titanium Bronze, and also comes in higher-storage variants. Though the Tab S is priced at $400, at the time of writing this, we found a few on Amazon being sold for under $350.

So, there you have it — our comparison of the Google Nexus 9 vs. the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. Again, your decision on whether to buy one tablet over the other completely lies in your needs. The Tab S offers great multitasking software, a solid build quality, and is slightly more portable. However, be willing to put up with cluttered software and a slightly lower battery capacity. The Nexus 9 offers a beautiful, simple software experience with a large battery and loud front-firing speakers. Nonetheless, choosing the Nexus 9 means you’ll need to deal with slightly less-quality hardware and not many extra tablet-friendly software features.

When comparing these two, it’s very apparent that neither one is close to perfect, but if you’re looking for a tablet that has an 8 or 9-inch display, you can’t go wrong with either one. Let us know your thoughts on these two tablets!

Android Nougat For Nexus 5 Released Unofficially!

Update [October 05, 2023]: Sprint has come out with an update for its Nexus 5 with new software version M4B30X, that brings the October patch to the device.

Did we tell you that Nexus 5 will so, so definitely, get the Android Nougat update, even though that would be 100% unofficial build. Yes, that time we’re talking about CM14 ROM doing the job, which it will, but we already have an pure AOSP Nougat ROM for Nexus 5 with us, one that when installed, brings Android 7.0 update to the device right now.

Some bugs are part of the update, of course. Some serious bugs, we mean, but we’re sure these are momentarily issues with the ROM, that would go away soon as development continues as fast and furious pace. You can find the ROM here, but once again, know that it’s not a daily driver at all as of today, August 25.

Let’s talk at some more length about the whole Nexus 5 Nougat update situation.

Because Nexus 5 is more than two years old by the time Google released Nougat update — it’s actually almost three years old, you know, even though fondly remembered by all of us — the update river has all but dried up for the device, except for some occasional security oriented ones.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow was officially the last update for Nexus 5 from Google. Period.

Read: HTC Nougat update release

Yes, Nexus 5 will live on. Because Android is an open-source project, under which Google shares the code publicly with the world, developers can pull that Android 7.0 code and create a Nougat ROM all by themselves.

Which they have done, and the result is the AOSP Nougat ROM we talked about in the opening paragraphs of this article. And even the Nexus 5 CM14 is under development, along with CAF version.

Nexus 5 CM14

Even though Android Nougat came to Nexus 5 via a simple AOSP ROM first, the ROM carrying the light for long would be CM14, or CyanogenMod 14. As many other ROMs would use CM14 as base, and would bring in extra features and customization options than stock AOSP ROM.

We expect the unofficial build of Nexus 5 CM14 to arrive by the end of August, or in first week of September, and official build by September end, that should be stable enough for daily usage.

Read: Galaxy Note 7 Nougat update release

Well, Nougat for sure in all its upcoming version like Android 7.0.1 or Android 7.1. But we also fully expect from developers to give Nexus 5 a breath life with Android O updates too, via an AOSP ROM like the one that appeared today carrying Nougat update. Speaking of Android O, we think it will have one certain new feature, called the Navbar Tuner, which is also available for testing as beta release.

But with Android O, the ROM stability and fine tuning could become issue, by sheer reason of Nexus 5’s age and its old hardware. Beyond Android O, it’s hard to say how developer love Nexus 5 would get, but even if it does, there won’t be a good stable ROM enough to be used as a daily driver. But anyway, your Nexus 5 will be more of a Hall Of Fame material than your daily usage device, right?

Do let us know if you or anyone among your family members (your grandma?) and friends use Nexus 5? And how glad you will to install Nougat update for their device?

Midjourney V4: Next Level Ai Art?

Midjourney V4: Next Level AI Art?

Are you an artist? Do you like to create digital art? If you do, then you’re going to want to check out the new Midjourney V4 base model.

With this new V4 model, you can create much more realistic imagery than ever before. Plus, the Midjourney team has been working hard to improve the resolution, quality, and controllability of upscaling.

So if you’re looking for a way to take your digital art to the next level with Generative AI, then you definitely need to check out the new Midjourney V4 base model.

Read more, or watch the YouTube video (recommended):

YouTube: What is Midjourney V4?

Midjoruney V4 is an entirely new codebase and totally new AI architecture. It’s Midjourneys first model trained on a new Midjourney AI supercluster and has been in the works for over 9 months.

V4 is not the final step of Midjourney`s AI Art generator, but what they consider a first step.

Meaning that the Midjourney team hopes this V4 version will feel as the new beginning of something deep and unfathomable that can change how humans create design.

The V4 model can generate much more realistic imagery than anything Midjoruney has released before. This can also be great news for everyone trying make a business with AI art.

From now on they will be much more strict with our rules around the “don’t be a jerk or create images to cause drama” policy.

What’s new with the Midjourney V4 base model? 

The V4 model from Midjourney is aiming to improve in a lot of areas when it comes to producing more precise and fulfilling the Midjourney prompt author’s imagination.

Some of the new things we know so far are listed below, and I have tried to put all of these categories to the test with my own prompts:

Vastly more knowledge (of creatures, places, and more)

To test the vastly more knowledge of creatures, places, and etc i did craft the following two prompts:

a huge blue dragon, spitting fire on the eiffel tower, fantasy, digital art, sharp focus, –v 4

a large werewolf roaming the streets of Manhattan New York, people running away, digital art, –v 4

My thoughts here were that the Dragon and Werewolf was the creature and Eiffel Tower and Manhattan were places.

This is the results i got back from the V4 model which i was pretty happy with and clearly shows some improvement:

Much better at getting small details right (in all situations)

To test the category of getting small details better i did craft the following prompt:

teenage boy watching the show “teenage mutant ninja turtles” on his TV in his basement, 1980`s, digital art, sharp focus, –v 4

Here I wanted to see the detail “teenage mutant ninja turtles” on his TV. The results I got back here was kinda exactly how i pictured it, so very happy with this prompt:

Handles more complex prompting (with multiple levels of detail)

In the complex prompting category I went over to OpenAI`s GPT-3 to ask for a complex prompt describing a Cyborg in extreme detail.

This is the long and heavy descriptive prompt i got back from GPT-3:

The cyborg is a woman who has been outfitted with a series of robotic implants and artificial limbs. Her body has been extensively modified with cybernetic devices that allow her to perform feats of strength and agility that would be impossible for a normal human. She is equipped with a wide range of weapons and devices, and her body is protected by a suit of armor that is nearly impenetrable. She is a fearsome opponent in battle, and she is able to think and act at lightning-fast speeds, –v 4

I gotta say i am really happy with the result i got back from Midjoruney V4 here that you can judge for yourself here:

Better with multi-object / multi-character scenes

In the multi-object / multi-character scenes category I again went over to OpenAI`s GPT-3 to ask for help. I asked for:

Describe in EXTREME DETAIL a multi character scene from The Viking Age, set in Norway in a realistic digital art style:

The prompt i got back from GPT-3 was:

The scene is set on the coast of Norway. There are two characters: a viking warrior and a dragon. The viking warrior is clad in traditional viking garb: a fur tunic, leather pants, and a metal helmet. He is armed with a sword and axe. The dragon is a massive reptilian creature with leathery wings and razor sharp claws. The two characters are locked in combat. The viking warrior is swinging his sword wildly, while the dragon is using its claws and teeth to try and attack the viking. The ocean is churning behind them and the sky is dark and stormy, –v 4

Also here i got to say the new V4 model really pulls this off, just look at the result from this complex prompt:

The last thing I wanted to test from the V4 model was multi-prompts. In this case I used the prompt:

A two-headed coin is an extremely rare object because it is a physical representation of chance and good luck. A four-leaf clover is an extremely rare object because it is a physical representation of luck and good fortune, –v 4 

This multi-prompt feature takes two different prompts and merges them into one as far as I can see. In this example you can clearly see the two-headed coin and the four-leaf clover merged together into one coin.

So I was very happy how this turned out!

Remix mode on Midjourney V4

The Midjourney team is also rolling out remix as fast as they can on this new base model.

What’s new with the V4 upsampler?

The new upsampler in the Midjourney V4 base model adds, changes and corrects details in the original image (more like the v3 upscaler).

Also the new upsampler is an early work-in-progress and will change significantly over time.

What are the Midjourney team still working on?

The Midjoruney team is always working on improving their AI model, some of the things the team is working hard on now is:

Increasing the resolution, quality and controllability of upscaling 

Adding more custom aspect ratios (currently limited to 1:1 in V4) 

Continue to increase image sharpness and reduce instances of tight cropping 

Greatly reducing text artifacts (certain prompts become unreadable language on images) 

Improving the default styling 


The Midjourney V4 base model is a huge step forward for digital art. With its new and improved features, you can create much more realistic and detailed images than ever before. 

Plus, the Midjourney team is constantly working to improve the resolution, quality, and controllability of upscaling, so you can be sure that your digital artwork will only get better and better.

So I think you should really check this out now.
