    JoyOS - Another new Droid X ROM

    lobsterboy over at rootzwiki has translated a Chinese ROM called JoyOS over to our Droid X. I flashed it last night to try it out for him, and it's pretty similar to MIUI, just not as customizable, but it's lean at only 87 mb. At first boot everything will be in chinese so far, but just find the language settings and change it to english. I've only used it for a few hours, but it's really smooth and fast. The only thing that bugs me is that it's even more iOS than MIUI. No theme options. Things like these could obviously be tweaked with apps, like widgetlocker and launchers. But I'm gonna try this out for a few days at least. First reactions; It's iOS, but it's FAST!

    It's GB, so just flash with a full wipe on GB kernel. And you'll need to flash the lastest GB gapps.

    If mine was a spare I might flash it for giggles, but the best part about miui is that I can make it look however I want. Curious to see how it develops and maybe some screenies, though.
    Check out my themes:

    Simple Sideways - MIUI lockscreen - Simple Sideways Dark - Touch of Green - Vortex RC1 - Christmas theme (in case you miss it) - Vortex RC1

    Oooh, tag. Since this is an iOS mimic, can widgets be used at all on the homescreens?

    Ok, so after using the ROM for most of the day on my actual phone not the spare, the launcher got on my nerves a little. You have one screen you can add widgets to. On my screenshots you'll see the little indicators on the bottom and one looks like the settings gear icon, that's where I have my fancy widgets and I can't move them. You can't freely place icons where you want, they have to be arranged from top left. There is a CM settings option, but it doesn't do anything. I'll continue to try it tomorrow and friday for battery life etc. So far I ditched the Joy launcher for ADW, and I think the lockscreen has to go too. But it's still really snappy and fast.
