    I have always had about 4 homescreens that contained a lot of widgets and some of them got elborate. It was never a problem with non GB ROM's, but discovered it was an issue with GB. I went from 4 home screens to 3 and virtually no widgets...and using the packaged launcher, MMS apks & stock kernel. I have to say this is the best my MIUI has ever ran...even on FROYO versions...

    So if your MIUI is laggy, look at your homescreen setup and try to scale down on the widgets and setup.

    if you use google voice or any app for VOIP you have to enable 3rd party access to make calls.

    under /settings/programs/call settings/ third party access

    Hold down menu and press volume down buttons to take a screen shot.

    One of my favorites: hold down the home button on the lock screen to turn on the "flashlight"

    Long pressing a app and swiping through screens to drop it where you want.

    On the drop down notification bar, hold down a toggle to go to that icon's settings.

    Disabling 'compcache' (Terminal Emulator > su > compcache stop)

    [my droid doesn't like compcache]

    Swapper2 + v6 supercharger = FTW :D

    Agree to disagree! ;P But I will say it's the best GB release to date...

    Next time you need to slap them twice in the face, old school style meaning the second slap is the back of your hand as you return pimp hand to ready position.

    If anyone is interested, I still have tons of copies left of my Betamax video cult classic of the 80's:
    Danceswithbongs in the D : keepin yo pimp hand strong

    The D is Detroit, and in the 80's we still had the honor of being awarded year in and year out, Murder Capital of the World!
    Our mantle is full of the yearly award.
    Presented at the Urban Blight Awards.

    Just discovered a new one.
    Take your Droid and fully protect it with saran wrap or your preferred plastic wrap.
    Find an empty field or old quarry.
    Make sure you packed water, you will need it.
    Now, drop to your knees and take the OG and probe for a soft spot of earth.
    Proceed to dig, take a water break when needed, then back to digging, lazy!
    The trick is if you are tenacious in accomplishing your goal, you should end up in China.
    I am Tapatalking right now from Tiennemen Square!
    Airfare zero dollars, extra fee for baggage, additional fee for emotional baggage a grand, but it varies. There was no available space in the overhead compartment for all my emotional baggage. Of course there wasn't space in the overhead compartment because I was in a tunnel!
    So I have a meeting with the boys over at MIUI about giving Mags a raise. Not exactly sure what time, as I don't speak any of the Chinese dialects. Just gonna wing it.
    And by that I mean my contact at MIUI is named Mr. Wing.

    I will report upon my return as security guards are currently wrestling the phone out of my hands.

    Use the tip if you want to join me either at the meeting or possibly to break me out.

    Tell my mother I love her? Bb., glot to hith srnd

    I have a share, a real one.
    If you select a theme to apply from your sd and it ends up that it is in the wrong format as it's older and the themer never updated it, it offers you the option to have the system reconfigure it to work on new format. Took less than 3 minutes and worked as well as it possibly could as I don't see anything that is glitchy.

    I thought it was exceptionally cool and a great idea and implementation.

    Yea! Now I have made an actual contribution!
    I feel all warm inside
    Though that might just be the malaria talking

    Who's been spreading these lies that I had a trick for everyone?
    I was merely providing a tip, which the thread's title led me to believe, would be fitting here.

    Now if I had a trick, that would be dangerous.

    Ladies and gentlemen for my next feat I will pull a Chinese man out of my Droid running MIUI!

    What I do when applying a theme is use only certain parts from different themes, like a lockscreen from here, icons from there, dialer from here, and so on...........
