    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.7.15.0
    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.*/
    
    KNOWN ISSUES:
    • Apps dont automatically load on fresh install, 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!! This a MIUI problem and cannot be fixed by those here) If you NEED video mms, DON'T USE THIS ROM.
    • Facebook will sync ALL contacts
    • Instead of *228 call *228+ (hold 0 for + sign)
    • Autobrightness is slow to change (see fix below)
    • Replaced Miui Camera with the stock CM7 app because Miui Camera will not flash when taking picture
    • Adding new folders copies contents of previous folder (see fix below)

    POST BUGS HERE IN THIS THREAD.

    • Removed 3G Hotspot due to it not working
    • Removed ProTips due to it being useless
    • Added Rom Manager for future automatic updates (installed to /data for easier upgrades)
    • Added Google Apps: Car Home, GenieWidget to system apps (not available from the market)
    • Added Google Apps: Mail, Maps, Voice, Google Search, Youtube to data partition (can be easily uninstalled or updated)
    • Added Stock Motorola Droid QuickOffice in data partition (can be easily uninstalled)
    • Added some build.prop tweaks (credit metalspring for collection from varioius sources)
    • Updated Busybox to 1.18.0
    • Setup cron to clear unused caches and restart compache everyday at 2 am (can be changed)
    • Update Market app version 3

    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.

    ADDING FOLDERS FIX
    When you add the first folder, copy all of the icons you want in the folder. When you add a 2nd folder, it will look like it has copied the contents of the first folder. Do not try to change anything in either folder, just reboot the phone. After a reboot the new folder will be empty and you should be able to add any future folders without this error reappearing.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    Trey's rom was smooth up until I restored my apps w/ the native Miui backup app. It was a backup from just last week (apps only) and after restoring it was laggy and weird. Gonna load this rom and reload apps direct from the Market. Man I wish Miui would sync w/ the Market after 1st boot.

    Thx again magiman7 for all your time and work spent on porting this for us all!!

    No I haven't ... I was thinking maybe restoring a backup that had it working and titanium back up the keyboard, then restore it on this build.

    Mag,question: I noticed the 4x4 music widget is only available if you use the native launcher.

    Anyway to make it available for those who use 3rd party launchers? The stock one isn't customizable enough for my use.

    Thanks man for another solid build

    I initially flashed that build, but it was missing many of the standard apps that I use. And I couldn't find em in the market.

    Not sure why it only appears in native launcher.

    OP states "Replaced Miui Camera with the stock CM7 app because Miui Camera will not flash when taking picture"

    I haven't been on MIUI in a while. I installed the ROM and I have only installed apps from the market and Amazon Market. I have not Used TB to install any apps or previous data. I have Fancy Widgets on my phone, Use Location is checked in the phone settings, but the application is not able to use the phone location. Fancy Widgets does show up in the list of programs on the location page (I assume those are the apps that have permission to use location). Does anybody else have this issue or know of a fix? I did type in my city, but prefer to use location for when I am farther from home. I haven't noticed any other problems yet. The only thing I use a lot of that appear to be missing is the ability to individually swipe away notifications.

    Edit: The only other issue I noticed besides Fancy Widgets and Location was that I could get the license for Swype to download because after installation, the Swype validation kept thinking I had Swype enabled and I was unable to get it to think otherwise.

    There is a work around for getting swype to work. Go to miui.us and use the search bar to find it.

    *found it http://forums.miui.us/archive/index.php/t-1255.html?

    I finally gave up on miui. It is a pretty nice rom, but Droid 1 memory isn't capable to handle it. I gave up. I'm sad because of that :( I'm running bugless beast GPA 16. Pretty smooth rom and free ram is 80mb. I'm sad :) I love miui UI

    I pulled the miui camera from treys build and the flash is working after 6 - 8 pics taken with no failure of the flash going off.
