    Didn't happen for the first two hours I had the ROM flashed. It was glorious. Best MIUI experience of my life by far. Then, all of the sudden, I couldn't open ANY setting without a FC. Now, I'm getting FCs all over the place, to the point where I'm going to have to re-flash and try a new kernel or something.

    For reference, I started out using the stock kernel - OK. Then I used Chevy's 1.2 GHz LV (not uLV) kernel - OK also. Got a little wonky and bootlooped once, so I swapped it out for Liquid's 1200 MHz kernel (RZK or something) and was going great for a bit until everything went to hell on me. Now everything's force quitting, I can't get more than ten seconds of continuous uptime, and to make it all worse, I got a glimpse at the perfection I could be experiencing!

    Any help? The FCs started when I tried to access the Settings, either by launching the app or by hitting Menu -> Settings in the Launcher, and then got progressively worse from there. Should I try a new kernel? Any recommendations?

    Had the same problem. Go back to stock theme to fix it.

    Every theme I applied caused the issue for me. Setting is any app caused that app to force close.

    I've gotten things a bit more under control, but this is still one squirrelly-ass ROM... nowhere NEAR as stable as the 1.3.8 I was running beforehand. It's a shame, because I really, really like all the changes, but I don't know how long I can put up with all the bugs. It's just too unstable; I feel like I'm walking on eggshells every time I press a button or try and use the Launcher.

    It's probably theme related. I ran into this issue when I was theming mine. Mine was related to the size of the themed sliders, they were too big. Go back to stock if you don't feel like messing around with your theme

    When applying a theme scroll down and uncheck the themes button. It will theme most of the stuff

    Might just have a finicky phone that isn't playing well with this version. I had the same issues with 4.8. , but 4.15 is running beautifully. Might want to wait until the next version is released and ported.

    If you are getting constant and continuous FCs, try redownloading the latest version and reflash with wiping cache/data. After the fresh install try accessing settings or whatever gives you a FC now to see if you get any FCs. If everything is working fine, then start installing / restoring all of your apps.

    Help!!!

    Thought I'd give 4.15 another try, wiped the darn thing several times, flashed the ROM a couple of times, manually installed the apps (what a pain), haven't touched the kernal or theme...

    Launcher loves to FC on a regular basis. Sometime when trying to install a folder on a page, or opening "settings". I love 3.25...am I relegated to that back of the bus forever??? PS...this is what occurred the first time I tried flashing 4.15...constant launcher and app FCs

    Isn't there ANYONE with an idea for a solution? Please?!?!? I'll beg...

    Hooray

    Well, as an update, I managerd to get 4.15 up and running...going smoothly so far, only one launcher FC in the last 3 hours since installing. Something about my apps was the issue I think...didn't like the market downloading???

    Anyway, this method worked incredibly well...used the MIUI Backup to save all the apps while in 3.25. Then once in 4.15, used the MIUI File Manager to install the .apk files from the backup folder. Worked like a charm and was super easy.

    Totally diggin MIUI!! I think I'm done trying ROMs for a while :)

    Spoke too soon

    Running MIUI 4.15 in Droid 1
    Original theme
    Have the launcher setting NOT keeping programs in memory, low-res graphics and no shadowing
    No change to the kernel
    No widgets
    all to keep a consistent 50MB or more RAM open

    Launcher is force closing constantly. Getting bad.

    Anyone...please I need ideas. I love it too much to give up on yet

    Try using the VM Heap Tool in the market to increase the VM Heap to 40m. I did this and it solved all my FC issues.
