    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.8.5.0
    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.

    MIUI CHANGELOG: Here

    Local changes by US:
    • Upgraded Motorola Proprietary files to FRG83G (Prevents VZW OTA update from downloading)
    • Stock kernel set to ondemand governor with min/max frequencies of 125/800
    • Changed the default VM Heap to 40mb
    • Compcache working from install (40mb) should be compatible with any kernel that works with CM7
    • Changed SD Card buffer to 2048 for speed boost (credit brainmaster)
    • Adjusted multiple memomory configurations - Between Multitasking and Balanced 3 with Hard to Kill Launcher from V6 Supercharge script (credit zeppelinrox)
    • Added 4-way Power mod (Miui.us)
    • Added all ringetones from CM7 and Pete's Stock GPA
    • Added vim, nano, bash, terminal mods, fix permissions script (CyanogenMod 7)
    • Added Terminal Emulator from CyanogenMod 7
    • Added sysrw and sysro scripts to remount system partition with write or read only access
    • Added lockapp / unlockapp scripts to lock an app in memory (scripts by MagiMan7, idea from zeppelinrox)
    • Added Old 3D Gallery
    • 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, Voice Search 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)
    • ERI Mod has been incorporated into the ROM, no need to flash another zip to remove network name. If you prefer seeing network name, sorry
    • Changed some default settings (disable traffic monitoring, enable non-market apps, enable power monitoring, etc)

    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.

    Info on the MIUI Stats included in MIUI.us builds 1.7.15 and later
    Please check out what they are and how we use them Here

    Version: 1.8.5.0 (Text Link for those on Mobile App)

    [​IMG]
    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


    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.

    Yes, I have fixed MIUI Camera with last weeks build and should be fixed permanently (fingers crossed) At least until MIUI changes something.

    I think that is a mod zip by cowsquad, but I don't know how up to date it is.

    Mags
    You just whip 'em out.
    Awesome move with the ERI incorp. and well done Sherlock Holmesing the update.zip annoyance.
    You sir are a gentleman and a scholar, yet also a scoundrel and a rapscallion.
    I think I'm gonna keep an eye on you.
    Time to hit the laboratory!

    Am I the only DWB post fan in the house? Thanks man for the relevant and constant funnies!

    I stayed on 1.7.15.0…never had time to try the last two. I’m going to load this up tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

    Thanks Magiman for your solid work.

    Hey magiman, in the dnd options it says it mutes the first ring on strangers. Does that mean someone who isn't in the contacts. I didn't notice it muting the first ring but just wanted to let people know its enabled by default.

    Yeah, that DND app is new this week. I haven't really spent a lot of time looking into all of the new options and what is set by default. I will probably look into setting it off by default in the future.

    I am unable to add my facebook account in accounts and sync. I click on add Facebook account and nothing happens, it just stays on the same screen.

    Try fixing permissions then try again. Mine worked without issue. But then again I always fix pemissions after restoring backups.
    Hope it helps.

    Great work mag
