    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.7.8.0
    Development Build


    This build is MOSTLY STABLE BUT STILL IN DEVELOPMENT

    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)
    • Autobrightness is slow to change (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.

    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.

    I did not include this option because the rom was running super smooth. If the build starts to lag later, this may help:

    Add this line to the bottom of /etc/init.d/98cron
    echo "4096" > /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes

    Let me know if you use this and it improves things.

    Wow this might be the first week where the new rom post beat me to the post before looking for it. I usually start checking late Fri nights then a few times Sat and so on, but I just checked for the first time and here it is beating me to the punch by a couple of hours.

    Magiman7 you are the man! Last weeks build was probably the smoothest GB based Miui yet on my phone.

    Grab the sofa!!

    It looks like you are using a different theme. Have you tried the default theme to see if the number still doesn't show up? I am pulling it up on my phone and I am seeing the numbers show up. You can also try running the phone app in compatibility mode (settings -> programs tab -> manage applications -> all tab)

    Also remember that miui won't show numbers from people who are not in your contact list. You can select their picture to pull up the option to see their number in a new window

    Flashed a couple hours ago, and thus far it is super smooth. No issues to report yet, and hopefully it stays that way.

    Mag, if I flash this and get it set up and the stable build is released, can I flash it over this dev build?

    I am not sure. I don't know what is going to be different with the stable build. I noticed the download from MIUI China is several mb smaller, so I don't know what they removed. (My guess is they removed Google stuff, but haven't looked at the build yet) I know MIUI.us is taking some time with the stable build to make sure everything is right. As soon as they get a stable milestone, I will try porting it to the D1.
