    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.10.7
    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
    12. If you get repeated acore / system fc on first boot after flashing, try rebooting to see if it goes away

    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).

    Thanks Magiman...

    Question...
    I had 1.9.30 and due to bad battery life I backed up (nandriod) and switched back to CM7 (winners build) if I want to try this can I just restore my backup and flash over using ROM Manager or do I need to wipe again?

    Edit:
    Answered my own question. Went ahead and restored 1.9.30 and flashed with ROM manager just wiped Dalvic. Of course while I was in recovery after backing up CM7 Winner I wiped data, cache and Dalvic several times each before restoring to 1.9.30 then downloaded 1.10.7 and flashed over 1.9.30 just wiping Dalvic.

    All seems well, hoping for better battery life so I can stick with MIUI.

    You can, but that increases chances for bugs to occur. It also makes it hard to trouble shoot bugs too if something happens

    After a day of use not too shabby had a few FCs while using the camera but I am running Fix Permissions to see if that helps and I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    Battery life is still not what it should be... I used the phone VERY lightly today and it was below 70% by 3PM (less than 8 hours off charge). I did not do any web browsing or use any apps except for Gas Buddy once. I took 6 pictures. 5-6 calls of no more than 2-3 minutes each.
    Not an issue driving around all day doing service calls when I have access to the charger but for a day out on the motorcycles or snowmobiles where I depend on the phone for a lifeline battery life is not acceptable.
    I did notice the GPS Icon on occasionally for no apparent reason. I also had BT and WiFi switched off for most of the morning because I was on the bike.

    I've been off miui for the past few weeks and back to froyo (new record) because of the battery issues. Monitoring the forums to see if they still exist. Hopefully a fix is coming soon.

    Last 2 builds have gave me some nasty lag. I rolled back to 1.9.16 for the time being...

    Well...I did a clean install this time. Both ROM and apps - nothing from backup or Ti. Running great. Bumped heap down to 28, gov to interactive. Great battery life (60% @ 4:30 w/moderate use) and graphic rendering snappier than usual.

    I had originally done an 'update' and something was funky. Something running constantly in the background...laggy, hot and killin' the battery. I still think restoring/updating is imperfect and seems to create bugs w/ each iteration of the software.

    Anyhow life is good.
