    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.8.19.0
    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.
    • Facebook will sync ALL contacts
    • Instead of *228 call *228+ (hold 0 for + sign)

    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 then follow link 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+

    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. After 1.8.26, using ota to update will not over write your settings for swap

    I can receive video mms but can't send them. Anyone else having this issue. It sends the audio but not video. Also I can't playback any video I record on low quality.

    Nice, looks like some changes have been made, I'll have to check later...Chevy just put out SS5.5 today and I'm still playing with it lol
    However I like the idea of a swap file right on the phone, but I have to wonder if its good for the phone or not...isn't a swap file supposed to hurt sdcard life? So would it possibly damage the phone if swap file is on it?
    And if I install a compcache capable kernel can I still run compcache and swap?

    I purposely don't have a donate button. I don't have anything against those that do mind you, but I have chosen not too. The main reason I don't is because there tends to be a perspective change from some that donate. When some people donate, they feel they "paid" for something and are therefore entitled to support or feature requests or compensation if something goes wrong. Most people that donate don't fall into this category, but the few that do make life way to hard on those that donate their time. I never wanted to deal with that issue, so I choose to not have a donate button.

    Thanks for the reply. May just be my Droid. I keep getting this video can't be played message even when I go to stock SMS and attach video but I can receive video no problem. Not a big deal. Everything else is running great on rom and I've gotten used to not having that feature with miui. Thanks again for the reply and the port.

    On the issue of swap, that is a good question, I have made a long post about it HEREThe swap file will not affect anything w/ the sdcard (mounting, unmounting, etc) because it is not on the sdcard

    Well...installed yesterday. Quick impressions are boot is quicker, browser seems more responsive (was having some lag issues with last build), and mail is less buggy. I put MIUI back on my work phone three builds ago and am very happy with stability. Thanks again to all the devs and there constant improvements to the platform.

    My stock browser still fc when trying to import bookmarks. Wifi still drops and reconnects, but it reconnects a lot quicker this build.

    Can you tell me where the bookmark data is stored for the stock browser?

    Mag, could the gtalk services be causing the wifi drops/reconnect?

    If you need the complete log I will upload

    Chewy, not sure. What is it with your phone and all the weird bugs? ;) AFAIK, you are the only one reporting dropped wifi signal. You could try removing gtalk (/system/app/Talk.apk) and seeing if that helps. Do you have tethering app installed? If so, you could try removing that and seeing if that is causing the issue.BTW, how is the sms pic issue on this build? Still black and white?

    My phone is like my wife; moody and temperamental. Hahaha. I will try all the suggestions and report back.

    The b&w SMS pic issue fixed itself. Weirdly enough it just started sending color again.

    In /data/data/com.android.browser/databases there are some database files that contain your history. I think the bookmarks are there. I tried to experiment and put some in there to check it, but I can write in there and I dont have a db viewer on the pc to try.
    Also according to TB the bookmarks are stored in a database in "app_databases"--"Databases.db"--localstorage/"

    Maybe that will help.

    Thanks will give them a try. Also don't think I'm mistaken but only way to change to make changes on kernels with this ROM is using SETCPU.
