    MIUI.us-Droid-1.6.3.0

    This build is MOSTLY STABLE BUT STILL BETA

    This build was ported to the droid by TP4BAMA and MagiMan7, translations to english were done by MIUI.us

    All of the MIUI.us build are now available on Rom Manager under MIUI.us which will allow automatic notification of future builds


    Follow us on twitter for real time updates!
    @tp4bama / @magiman7

    If this is your first time trying Miui, read the Miui Manual (credit The Batman) to become familiar with the interface and many of the hidden options.

    Code:
    #include <std-disclaimer>
    
    /*Anything you do to your phone is solely your responsibilty, you choose
     to modify your phone. This rom has been marked BETA by the developer,
     however should anything happen to your phone neither of the developers
     "MagiMan7 and/or Tp4bama" nor MIUI.us nor Miui.cn developers are liable 
     in anyway.*/
    
    KNOWN ISSUES:
    • Apps dont automatically load, use the Miui Backup app to backup /restore apps
    • If you have having launcher force closes, switch back to the stock theme to verify the theme is not causing the issue.
    • MMS Videos playback as slide show,. (Chinese devs know about this!! There is a problem across all builds with attaching vids to mms) If you NEED video mms, DON'T USE THIS ROM. If you don't NEED video mms than DON'T COMPLAIN
    • Facebook will sync ALL contacts
    • Hear camera initialize once after every full boot
    • Autobrightness is slow to change (see fix below)
    • Hot Boot reboot occasionally freezes
    • Miui Backup - backup dates have chinese between date numbers.
    • Miui Camera still buggy, replaced with the CyanogenMod Camera until fixed
    • The online button in Theme Manager has an orange image overlay issue (works fine, just looks odd)
    • All notifications (even single notifications) get rolled under the miui notification icon on the notification bar

    INSTALLATION:
    1. Backup apps with MIUI backup if you are on a previous GB release (1.4.8 or later)
    2. NANDROID BACKUP!
    3. Wipe Data/factory reset
    4. Flash this rom
    5. If apps do not show up after initial flash, rebooting should make them reappear
    6. Restore apps/data with Miui backup
    7. If you use Google to back up your contacts, restoring contacts with Miui Backup could result in duplicate entries
    8. Using Titanium Backup to backup and restore apps/data has reportedly caused FCs
    9. [DO NOT TRY TO RESTORE SYSTEM DATA FROM ANY ROM INCLUDING MIUI BELOW 1.4.8!!!!!!! or you will get force closes...] You have been warned.

    AUTOBRIGHTNESS FIX
    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.

    LOCKAPP / UNLOCKAPP INFO
    Run lockapp script in terminal or from gscript. Both scripts are located in /system/xbin. Both scripts take a single argument, the process name. For example the Miui Music player has the process name com.miui.player. You can find process names for most installed apps under /data/app (just drop the -1.apk from the name listing).

    To lock an app in memory you run lockapp PROCESS. For example, to lock the Miui Music player into memory, run 'lockapp com.miui.player' As a warning, Do not lock more than 1 app in memory. To lock an app in memory, the app has to be running. If the process is not running, the script will inform you.

    Once an app is locked into memory, the only way to remove it from memory is to kill the process. The unlockapp does extactly that. It is run with the same arguement, unlockapp PROCESS. If you wanted to unlock the Miui Music player from memory, run 'unlockapp com.miui.player' This will kill the app you are unlocking from memory. If you want it to run the background unlocked, you will have to re-run the app.

    EDIT: Uninstalled and installed again, and now it seems to be working.

    Okay..1.6.3 is running great, BUT...what is the icon in the top left that looks like a steering while that I can't get rid of? Plus, it's blocking all of my other notifications in the top left.

    Thanks!

    Its not car home that is just a notification icon. The same as when you have a notification in the status bar when the lock screen is up. My guess is something got ported wrong maybe.

    Yep. Won't allow my temperature or big battery notifications to show. Just rolls them up as though it is in lockscreen.

    so confession ..haven't tried MIUI in a long long time. Wanted to give it a go on my OG. It's deactivated, but still use it a lot through wifi. Anyway, downloaded, wiped Everything, installed, and no Android set up prompt. Which is why i'm assuming I have no Market either. This happened with the 5.27 one as well. I know miui is A Lot different than every other ROM out there, so it may just be that i'm not the brightest, and am missing an obvious step. Or is it that the phone needs an active carrier? Or something completely different. idk. someone enlighten me?

    I have had the issue with Market appearing to not be installed when cleanly flashing MIUI, a reboot will fix it... seems market and occasionally a few other system apps dont appear in launcher on first boot. After the reboot, you can get set up w/ Google by authing via market.

    ya know, I thought that too. Because I read that some apps may not appear, but a reboot should fix it ...so I thought, hmm, maybe the market was one of those "apps not appearing". so i rebooted .....and got stuck at the M ....then I got pissed and restored by backup lol.

    But I really wanted to give this a fighting chance, so that's why I'm asking. Maybe i'll download it one more time and try once more.

    Rebooting should fix the issue with market not showing up. If you get stuck on M on reboot, not sure why it happens, but to fix it, reboot into recovery, wipe cache and reboot.

    I believe it is a change in how Miui handles notifications. Anytime you have more than 1, it will roll them up and give that icon w/ multiple notifications. So if you have a temp display and anything pops up, it will roll them together.

    PARick, can you try just enabling 1 of those, temp or big battery and see if it shows up? I know with both of them, Miui will combine them.

    I believe the reason is because Miui has gone to that is because they are showing Network name in the notification bar and so there isn't as much space there

    I will talk to some devs w/ other devices and see if they are getting similar behavior.

    Are you saying I made a mistake? No more Miui for you ;) (j/k of course)
