    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.6.24.0

    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.com 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
    • Instead of *228 call *228+ (hold 0 for + sign)
    • Hear camera initialize once after every full boot
    • Autobrightness is slow to change (see fix below)
    • Miui Camera may have weird zoom behavior (see fix below)
    • Phone may become laggy after a few days w/o restarting due to compcache. (see fix below)

    POST BUGS HERE IN THIS THREAD.

    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 with certain apps
    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.

    MIUI CAMERA ZOOM FIX
    From MIUI Camera, goto Settings and uncheck AutoFocus. The camera will still auto focus when you take the picture, but it will not continueally focus as so you point your camera. The autofocus seems to take priority and can cause the calls to zoom to get missed.

    REFRESH COMPCACHE FIX
    From terminal, su to gain root access and run 'compcache restart' That will refresh your compcache and should give fresh boot snappiness.

    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.

    In case you didn't catch it in the OP, we now have a working MIUI Camera app. Not a single crash and no "Cannot connect to Camera" errors. Only issue is weird zoom behavior with autofocus enabled. Disable that and it works great. Video recording appears to work as well, although I haven't test video recording as thoroughly.

    Have fun and remember, this came from a MIUI.us build first

    Have you turned on Vibrate on Keypress?

    Settings -> System Tab -> Language and Input Settings -> Android Keyboard Settings > Vibrate on Keypress

    My battery drains fast, but I guess swype and miren browser are draining it. Watch out for those apps.

    I am using the DroidForums app and the main download is a image and not a link. I have to save the image and restore my qr scanner to download. The mod eri and lockscreens are links. Is this only me?

    The image (download button) should have a link associated with it. I haven't used the droidforums app, so I never tried it. So you are saying that the droidforum app doesn't associate the url link when it is applied to images? You can just click on the download button?

    Yes, it doesn't associate the link with the image. You have to open in browser or qr scan.

    I think this started with the June builds

    I have a small request that I'm sure quite a few other people might like too...could you replace the stock browser app with the slightly modified one that allows for user agent switching? I know a lot of other gingerbread roms include this and I know I'd really like it for sites Id really prefer to view as desktop

    I have noticed on this build as well as last weeks that my phone seems to be sluggish when waking up after being idle for a period of time. I believe the issue is a change I made last week in build.prop to try to save some battery life.

    If you are noticing the same behavior on your phone, try editing build.prop and commenting out these two lines to see if it helps:
    ro.ril.disable.power.collapse=0
    pm.sleep_mode=1

    If this seems to help, I will remove these in future builds.
