    I was wondering why there is not a lot of D2 users that are running the MIUI rom? I have been running it since I first flashed my first rom and love it. I have tried a few others using Boot Manager, but always have used MIUI as my main rom.

    I use miui on my Droid 2. I am currently running beans most recent miui Droid x rom because it seems to get better battery life than the d2 version at his time. Battery life seems to improve with each build, however.

    Running DX build on D2? Didn't know you could do that. I am running his builds from MIUI.us site. The GB build is my phone rom and have V4 in a slot. Had it running today and looks pretty good, but still a few bugs to work out.

    Hey Rick,

    How did setup up Boot Manager to run MIUI v4. I am using the free version and have had no luck. I'm using MIUI Defx 2012.3.23 as the phone ROM and tried loading v4 into a slot. It installs fine but when I try to boot it just hangs up after the boot logo. No boot animation or anything. I have already had to SBF the ol phone this weekend learning what not to do.

    Are you using the same builds I have? The Defx is phone rom and V4 in slot 1. I think I may had trouble also but have found when you have trouble, running Fix Permissions in Rom Manager seems to help ( do it while in Defx, before booting to slot rom ). I also think the first boot to V4 took a little while but was fine after that. I was running V4 all day yesterday checking it out and today was back on Defx.I am using the Boot Manager Pro version. Don't know that it makes a difference, but I thought I would support the devs for making a great app to try different roms.

    Oh, forgot. Load the V4 build on your sd card, then run Fix Permissions before installing to slot rom spot in BM. Maybe that is how I did it. You shouldn't have to sbf if it hangs up. Pull battery, restart in CWR and load phone rom zip from BM and reboot. I have picked up a few things searching the BM forum.

    Ok, just downloaded the new build and having problems loading it as slot rom. When I figure it out, I will let you know.

    Well great...tried it using a nandroid of v4 and not my phone is stuck at the red M boot logo. I can't seem to get to CWM but was able to get to stock recovery, did a wipe and rebooted but still hanging on the red M. I hope another SBF is not in the near future.

    If it hangs up,do this:
    Pull battery, then reinstall
    Power up and it will go into CWR
    Chose install zip from sd
    Chose Boot Manager
    Chose Phone rom
    Yes,install
    and go back and reboot.
    This will get you back to your phone rom. It is a fail safe built into BM.

    No luck man. It just hangs on the boot logo. I guess Boot Manager is not liking the latest release of MIUI v4. Can't get into CWM only stock. Tried wiped data and cache from there and rebooting and still no luck. Luckily, I made a EZsbf disc last night so I should be able to SBF,root, and reinstall MIUI Defx, and then restore my backup.

    I think the new build is buggy. Have the new one in slot 1 and won't work. Loaded the previous build in slot 2 and it works. Must be something changed in the new build.

    I posted to MIUI.us to let beans know.

    I have the display setting set to auto-rotate, I assume you checked that. My texts and forums will rotate, but the main screens will not. I also noticed the contacts list won't rotate. No big deal to me the few things that don't.
