    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.12.2
    Development Build


    This build is MOSTLY STABLE BUT IN DEVELOPMENT

    This build was ported to the droid by MagiMan7 and TP4Bama, 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!
    @magiman7 / @tp4bama

    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.com developers are liable 
     in anyway.*/
    
    COMMON ISSUES
    1. Facebook app will sync ALL contacts
    2. Instead of *228 call *228+ (hold 0 for + sign)
    3. If you have having launcher force closes, switch back to the stock theme to verify the theme is not causing the issue.
    4. If apps do not show up after initial flash, rebooting should make them reappear
    5. If you use Google to back up your contacts, restoring contacts with Miui Backup could result in duplicate entries
    6. Using Titanium Backup to backup and restore apps/data has reportedly caused FCs with certain apps
    7. [DO NOT TRY TO RESTORE SYSTEM DATA FROM ANY ROM INCLUDING MIUI BELOW 1.4.8!!!!!!! or you will get force closes...]
    8. If you cannot move apps to sdcard, uninstall app and reinstall from market
    9. If you have issues downloading anything, run Downloads app and cycle download with wifi
    10. If you cannot download / install apps from market, make sure you have "ROOT Permission" set to ON under SuperUser Settings.
    11. If you get permission denied, root not found, or similar errors, make sure you have "ROOT Permission" set to ON under SuperUser Settings

    Have Rom Manager automatically download zip on your phone (suggest downloading on wifi)
    You must enable Web Connect in Rom Manager on your phone to enable this option and click Here


    Themes available HERE

    Themers: Excellent guide on creating MIUI themes HERE

    CRON OPTIONS
    The set of cron tasks is editable in the /data/cron/root file. The root file lists all of the commands scheduled to run and the scheduled time. The file can be edited to add tasks or change the preset ones of flushing caches. All tasks in this file will be run as root (superuser privileges). The default cron tasks has a command commented out to cause the phone to do a soft reboot everyday at 2:45 am. This may help keep phone feeling snappy each morning. Remove '#' to have this run everyday

    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.

    A2SD+ INFO
    Once you have your sdcard formated for a2sd (Create a 2nd partition of type ext3 using Rom Manger or favorite patition manager), you can run command a2sd from terminal to setup a2sd+. Running 'a2sd help' will give a list of options available. Running 'a2sd install' will move all apps from /data to sdcard. Running 'a2sd datasd' will copy apps as well as their settings / configurations (/data/data) to sdcard.

    SWAP OPTIONS
    There is an included script called swap located in /system/bin you can run from terminal, adb shell, or gscript. The script takes a single arguement defining what type of swap setup you want. Options are file, compcache, both, none. The script will immediately initiate the swap system chosen as well as update boot up and cron files to keep the selection permenent. So whatever you select will persist after a reboot. To run the command, just enter 'swap OPTION'. So if you want to switch from no swap (default on new instal) to swap file, type 'swap file' and everything is adjusted for you. The swap option will be kept after updateing assuming data is not wiped. If data is wiped, it will default back to none.

    VIRTUOUS OVERCLOCK
    The virtuous overclock daemon will auto run as long as no SetCPU type apps are installed. The OC daemon will auto underclock the CPU when the screen is off. The daemon repsonds quicker to screen on/off changes than 3rd party apps. Options for daemon can be changed with included app (which can be uninstalled if you don't want to use).

    Loaded and running well. First boot was sluggish...let it sit for a bit, repaired permissions, rebooted and all was well.

    Thanks again Mag

    Can anyone confirm with me if we are able to use MIUI Backup to restore system settings yet? I haven't tried yet because it started putting my phone through boot loops a few months ago but I'd like to know if that has been corrected. Thanks.

    Update: Well I decided to give it a go and, no, it still does not work. Immediately sent my phone into a reboot.

    Do not restore wifi. Everything else is fine and also avoid restoring contact to avoid possible double entries.

    I haven't used MIUI Backup since we have the OTA and I have been updating w/o wiping data. Not sure why they haven't fixed that wifi data backup issue yet. In all likelihood it may not get fixed until v4 (ICS) which will probably not come to the D1. Cyanogenmod has dropped D1 from its supported devices, and even without anything official from MIUI, I would be surprised if they update the Milestone.

    As long as there is a Milestone release from MIUI, I will continue to port to the D1, but I think the ride is coming to an end :( Either way, its been a great ride. :)

    I just rewiped and did not restore anything, I don't use many apps right now anyway the OG can't seem to handle anything! Thanks magiman for continuing to port, hopefully a bunch of us won't need to worry about it after this Friday with the Nexus. Well, at least until they start releasing for the Nexus I guess!

    Installed a couple of days ago for the first time...sweet ROM. Only issue I've run across is the lockscreen and Poweramp. Even after setting the default player to Poweramp and using either the MIUI music lockscreen or Poweramp's when attempting to unlock the phone either the unlock occurs music stops playing on bluetooth and suddenly plays through the phone speaker or music stops altogether - sometimes both in sequence.

    I couldn't find any way to turn off the music widget in MIUI lockscreen. Any suggestions?
