    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.7.1.0

    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)

    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.

    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


    Themes available HERE

    Themers: Excellent guide on creating MIUI themes HERE
    I know that there have been some changes to themes in 1.7.1 so check the link above and MIUI.us forums for more details

    ERI Mod - Removes all Verizon / Roaming / Network text in menu bar and pull down. (Flash on top of 1.7.1.0)

    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)

    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.

    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.

    Flashing now. Thanks.

    I was wondering if there is a way to move all system apps to sd card, to free up some ram?

    A text link for those on mobile app? Wow, you really pay attention to detail...I'm downloading now...btw I didn't see anything about changing the browser to the modified stock browser so if its there great, if not then what's the best way to go about switching them if its even possible without using a computer?

    Moving apps will not free up ram, just free up space on /system.

    Opps, completely forgot to grab the browser from CM7. The easiest way to change it is to use adb to push the browser.apk from rom you want to your phone. You will probably need to change permissions on the apk after pushing it.

    Without a computer, you could flash a rom that has the browser you want and copy the apk to the sdcard, then flash back to MIUI and copy the browser.apk back to /system Again, you will probably need to change permissions after copying.

    Okay thanks for clearing that up. My only complaints (and they don't bother me too much) are:

    Vibrate on key press for the keyboard still doesn't work. I enabled it in the keyboard settings.

    My apps disappear all together, sometimes I can find them on the far right screen like I just downloaded them.

    Lastly the double click home button to see all screens option is gone. I loved that.

    Besides that, its very smooth and running great.

    I tried that on the last build to no avail...btw is it me or did compcache get broken? I flashed deprimed kernel (which should work, right?) And I got some weird error using the handle_compcache script and using compcache start it said mkswap error: image too small
    Also tried corcors PE kernel which worked on last build
    Full data/cache wipe before flashing the rom

    Edit: Nevermind...apparently it was the deprimed kernel that messed it up...odd, I thought that one worked before

    I have heard about this in MIUI, but I haven't heard of a fix yet.

    I haven't seen this since using the backup app from 1.6.10. My desktop screen restores have been good since then.

    That is a change in MIUI w/ 1.7.1 and probably not coming back. From the launcher, you can use menu->preview or pinch zoom.

    Nope its all included, however don't be alarmed on first boot...it doesn't automatically ask you to sign in to Google and sometimes you need to reboot for all the included apps to appear on homescreen

    Try running Zeppelinrox supercharger script but make sure you type in
    Su
    Compcache stop
    In terminal before running it. some of the settings are built into this rom already (multitasking option) but if you want more free ram you can run balanced 3 or one of the aggressive settings
