    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.9.16

    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.*/
    
    COMMON ISSUES

    1. Facebook app will sync ALL contacts
    2. Instead of *228 call *228+ (hold 0 for + sign)
    3. If you have having launcher force closes, switch back to the stock theme to verify the theme is not causing the issue.
    4. If apps do not show up after initial flash, rebooting should make them reappear
    5. If you use Google to back up your contacts, restoring contacts with Miui Backup could result in duplicate entries
    6. Using Titanium Backup to backup and restore apps/data has reportedly caused FCs with certain apps
    7. [DO NOT TRY TO RESTORE SYSTEM DATA FROM ANY ROM INCLUDING MIUI BELOW 1.4.8!!!!!!! or you will get force closes...]
    8. If you cannot move apps to sdcard, uninstall app and reinstall from market
    9. If you have issues downloading anything, run Downloads app and cycle download with wifi
    10. If you cannot download / install apps from market, make sure you have "ROOT Permission" set to ON under SuperUser Settings.
    11. DO NOT restore wifi data with MIUI Backup

    POST BUGS HERE IN THIS THREAD.

    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+. Running 'a2sd help' will give a list of options available. Running 'a2sd install' will move all apps from /data to sdcard. Running 'a2sd datasd' will copy apps as well as their settings / configurations (/data/data) to sdcard.

    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. The swap option will be kept after updateing assuming data is not wiped. If data is wiped, it will default back to none.

    VIRTUOUS OVERCLOCK
    The virtuous overclock daemon will auto run as long as no SetCPU type apps are installed. The OC daemon will auto underclock the CPU when the screen is off. The daemon repsonds quicker to screen on/off changes than 3rd party apps. Options for daemon can be changed with included app (which can be uninstalled if you don't want to use).

    Not exactly sure. Probably going w/ Nexus Prime or HTC Vigor. I will wait to see what the Prime is like when it is released. If it is a let down, the Vigor should be good. Don't know how many D1 users will still be hanging on going into next year, but porting for the D1 has been completely automated, so MIUI ports will continue even if I upgrade phones. As long as MIUI continues to release for Milestone, there will be a D1 port, and I think they would keep the Milestone until they migrate to ICS.

    What do you mean you want "this in it"? Do you want it as background, icon, theme somewhere? You can always copy the transformer sounds and set them as default sound effects.

    In the red eye if possible or yes,in the background. I was also wondering if using MIUI, I was told that you could install the puzzle piece lock screen from the Samsung onto the DX.But I was wanting it on DB. Is this true?? I would also be willing to make a donation toward that!!! Thank you for your timely response

    There is a theme available with that lockscreen. I don't know the name because its in Chinese. I have it though. It has 3 puzzle pieces; one for SMS, Dialer, and normal unlock.

    This thread is for the D1. You need to download the rom for the DX, flash the rom to your DX and apply the custom lockscreen.

    This should help:

    ...so what am I missing here...I have been unable to get superuser to allow script manager. I get the permission denied thing along with a 'know it' button that doesn't seem to affect anything. Went into SU settings and the program isn't there either. Uninstalled script mgr and reinstalled too...and I'm running out of ideas.
    There must be some clear something to get this to allow. Anyone else having this issue?

    Open up superuser click menu click settings and turn on the setting that allows Apps to request superuser permission

    Yeah its the same as last build with the superuser.

    Mag, maybe put a note in the OP about the SU needing permissions before any root apps will work?

    What swap option are you using? That file is fine if you are not using swap file or compcache.
