MIUI V6 was only available for Nexus 7 and since the Kernel was only for Tablet devices, no one except it to be released for Nexus 5 this early. The developer has ported any other custom Kernel in this ROM and made it available for Nexus 5. I have installed this ROM on my Nexus 5 and it is still in exploration, so I can’t tell what is working or not working. But you all know that MIUI is famous for its interface and mostly don’t agree with it either as they want to stay on pure Android instead of going to MIUI. Do try this ROM and let us know, But if you don’t want to then You can Visit our Custom ROM section Or You can update your Nexus 5 to MIUI V6 Android 4.4.2 by following our Tutorial.This is not an official release from LG, but a Custom ROM, you need to install a Custom Recovery on your device to install it and also your device must be rooted.Haven’t rooted yet.

But why would anyone goes for a Custom ROM instead of staying on the Stock On, allow me to explain. “Stock and Official ROMs are good, but they are created with keeping in mind the demands of all,some wants performance and some wants speed, some wants looks, some wants features. Putting them all in one ROM can cause Lag, Performance issues and bugs. But Custom ROM in basically designed for either Looks or Performance and Custom ROM gives speed and great performance with Tweaks and System Tools.”
