    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.7.29.0
    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)
    • Rebooting into recovery tries to install update.zip, just select reboot recovery to reboot into proper recovery stage

    POST BUGS HERE IN THIS THREAD.

    2. NANDROID BACKUP!

    4. Flash this rom
    5. If apps do not show up after initial flash, rebooting should make them reappear

    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.

    Cron is a service that you can have run commands at specific time intervals. The reason I have set it up on the D1 is so that it will flush unused caches every morning at 2 am and then restart compcache (to clear up any unused swap) at 2:30 am. This should create a pseudo reboot experience for the memory use. I have also added an option (but commented it out because users may not like it) to have the phone do a soft reboot (hot boot) at 3 am. If you want to enable this you just need to edit the /data/cron/root file as mentioned in the OP

    You can also use cron to run any service, task, script, shell command at any specific time. So you could have something run every hour, day, week, etc

    Would locking the camera into memory help it stop freezing up? That was the main issue with 7.15. I lost some good videos because the camera froze.

    The cron option sounds good

    Unable to set notification ringtone thru the theme manager. Set it and as fast as you go back to main settings page, it defaults back to silent. Had to set using the music option.

    Other than that, running real good so far.

    The Miui Camera takes a second to load and initialize because it is pulling the preview image of the last pic from the sdcard. After that, the camera seems fairly responsive. I haven't done a lot of testing on video though. Just give it a second when you first load it up before giving it any commands and it should be ok.

    Snappy! Looking forward to seeing how it behaves over the next few days with the addition of the nightly maintenance.

    Two things I've noticed so far...
    -4way boot to recovery still tries to flash an update zip
    -the icons at the bottom of dock on the launcher always rearranges itself after ever reboot. So I will arrange the icon docs the way I want and after reboot the icons will be not in the order I left them prior to reboot

    I noticed the same thing about the icons rearranging themselves after a reboot.

    FYI, I have included cron and the nightly maintenance for several builds now (since 1.7.1) so there won't be any improvement from them. The option to do a soft reboot is new, but you have to enable that if you want to use it.

    I have found the issue w/ rebooting into recovery. I will be testing it some more to make sure the fix doesn't create any issues.

    I have also noticed the dock icons changing places. I think it is a miui issue, but will look into it.

    I just noticed some of my 4x4 widgets are missing. I use a calendar widget. I also noticed the 4x4 notes widget is a 3x4.

    Thanks for the voice search!

    I'm receiving color picture messages no problem. Doesn't help fix your problem but i don't think it's a rom issue

    Chewy, this bug seems to follow you w/ every build. Have you tried receiving pic sms from fresh install of rom w/o restoring anything? IIRC, your the only one I remember reporting this issue.

    2 odd things

    Have 2 weird things.
    1st, phone was locking up, so I did a reboot. Got stuck at "M". Out of nowhere, I had to reflash rom to get started....odd
    2nd, when I took a video, I had no issues. Watched the video and it was distorted. Hold the phone potrait or landscape and play video. It always plays in landscape and it doesn't proportionaly resize for the screen. Just sqashes it down on the screen. Havent downloaded to computer yet to see if stays that way.
    That isn't a real big issue for me cause I don't really use the video, but odd none the less.

    You're right. I even flashed back to 7.15 and it still had the bug. I did start over with a clean install and no restore or themes or 3rd party apps installed and still getting bug.

    Any other suggestions? You want me to get a logcat to you or try something else?

    Thanks for your help
