    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)

    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 and click 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

    So far so good. The swap scripts seem to be working well. Although I did initially have some trouble getting compcache started. I was getting an error message in the terminal. Ended up using gscript and its working now.

    Has anyone noticed unusually high android OS battery usage ie 25-30%? Usually display uses most of my power with all of the operating system processes coming way behind. On SS5.5 it never got above about 8%. Is this kernel related or just different reporting by miui?

    so...I have been playing with MIUI since, what, last October? Well, I had some time off yesterday from work (and wife and kids) and decided to do a study on kernels, speeds and voltages (the results of which are not important as each d1 seems to have different preferences). Anyhow - what I did stumble on is that my droid HATES a large VM Heap size. It seems that there is a movement to go with larger heap sizes as this 'seems' to make larger apps, such as big games, work faster. This obviously works well for devices with larger memories (512) but for the d1, particularly if you are running multiple apps and background processes...this seems counterproductive. For kicks I tested heap sizes of 24m, 32, 40 and 48m and then benchmarked using linpack and quadrant as well as running (the same) programs and just getting an overall feel for the devices responsiveness. Note: I use this phone for work and with the exception of solitare, rummy and jewels do not do any heavy gaming on my phone.

    I did benchmark significantly higher with 24m heap size - but more importantly my d1 no longer lags to any degree and actually benchmarks faster than both the last froyo miui build and petes last froyo build. Is there anyone else out there that could validate what I am seeing? Thanks, and by the way...thanks Magi - I am really enjoying this build. Not seeing the WiFi issue.

    I used VM Heap Tool to adjust, and would like to know if anyone else has played with this and what your results/feelings are with how it alters performance.

    Thanks for the heads up on the VM heap size. I didn't even realize the default was 40. I have cranked mine back down to 24 as well. This has worked for me in the past. I don't think I have ever gone above 32.

    Speaking of defaults, does anyone know what the compcache is set at as default? I generally use 10 or 18 I believe. And I couldn't get compcache working with Chevy LV kernel using the scripts.

    I'm not sure if this is a rom issue or boot manager issue but when I flash chevyno1's 1100 MHz mv kernel, I get suck at the M. Anyone else have this problem?

    I have never played with the heap. How would you go about tweaking that?

    Clear cache and dalvik cache and try flashing again. Your phone might not like the combination.

    I used the VM heap tool from the market as suggested by groovydeus. Usually there is an option built into the ROM that allows you to do this as well as many more performance tweaks, such as Cyanogenmod tools or Chevy1 tools, but MIUI doesn't have this.

    Yeah, tried 3x but still won't go, works without Chevy's kernel but way too sluggish. The kernel has worked fine for any other rom I've ever flashed though. So maybe MIUI + Chevy's kernel =0?
