Be sure to NANDROID backup!
Themers: I have no idea what may have changed with the transition to gingerbread.
The screen may take 10-30 sec to change brightness level when moved from bright to dark environment. This can be sped up to around 5 sec by disabling the Light Sensor Filter. To do this go to Settings -> Display Settings -> Advanced Mode (Under Automatic brightness) -> Turn off Light Sensor Filter at the top.
THEME MANAGER FIX
There have been some issues across all miui builds. Try applying the theme after unchecking 'other'. If that does not work, try removing excess garbage in your /sdcard/MIUI/theme folder. You may be able to just remove the preview images and it work fine. There have been different results with different builds. I only have 1 theme downloaded and did not have any issues.
This is an issue across all Miui builds. The Chinese devs messed this up. There are rumors that a fix is coming from China, but I don't know for certain. It will be fixed next week doesn't help much. Here are 4 fixes that have been reported to work.
1. Cheap fix: Enter phone number manually for sending texts, make sure number has no spaces or '-'
2. Ugly fix: Change all of the numbers in your contact list to remove all spaces and '-'
3. No-fix Fix: Use another SMS app, handcent, chomp, etc
4. Circular Fix: Go to Contacts and then send SMS from contact list.
