With the new OnePlus One running CyanogenMod out of the box, you can be sure the startup is open to its “flagship killer” supporting other custom ROMs as well. There are already ports of Paranoid Android, OmniROM and MoKee and now a video has been released of the device running MIUI V5 (Android 4.4.2 KitKat).

MIUI, pronounced “Me You I,” a version of Android from Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi, is usually described as a mashup of the best of iOS and Android styling and relies on looks and stability more so than added features, compared to other custom ROMS.

In the video from Anexonel, it shows that the ROM is running smoothly and looking fairly stable for a beta version. It supports seven languages, of which English is one. The only issue that Anexonel notes is that HSPA+ isn’t working on his Chinese version of the OnePlus One, but gives a way to get it working. Other than that, if you’ve used MIUI before, you will be very familiar with this ROM.

I haven’t found a link to the ROM yet, but I’ll update the post once I find it. According to GizChina, the ROM comes from a Chinese modder and a video of it can also be found on the Chinese video hosting site Youku.

Be sure to check out both videos below.
