    MIUI.us Sholes 1.9.2.0
    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.*/
    
    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

    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

    Wheeee!
    Thanks Mags, is Tp4bama still working on this with you?
    Saw he has a theme on Rom Manager but it only gives dl error results.
    Quick question, you said wipe dalvik and cache but nothing regarding system. Does this just overwrite the system partition with just what is new/updated?
    Wondering since I usually format system partition.
    Thanks for the new version and I'll take your answers off the line.

    I have automated the porting process. As soon as MIUI.us has the translations done, a port is made for the D1. There are a few peeps that test the builds every friday morning to make sure MIUI didn't do something that broke things before I upload and release. TP is definitely one of those guys, but I haven't touched base with him lately. Best bet is send him a message on twitter to find out about his themes.

    As far as system, yes the install script will wipe /system before copying over a new build.

    Thanks for another awesome update! One question..........

    Is it safe to remove miui.us, miui stats and miui account manager? I don't frequent the miui.us forums much. Just trying to remove some bloatware.

    What's up with the news and weather app?? Does anyone really use that? I personally prefer the huffington post for my news.

    You can remove miui.us forum app easily, it is in /data now. Miui stats shouldn't cause any issue removing, but it is in /system so a little more cumbersome to do. The miui account manager, I don't know if that will cause any issues with Miui backup or not. As far as the GenieWidget (news and weather), I don't use it but several people requested it. You can remove it too.

    I noticed the chnage when I uninstalled miui.us. I was able to just uninstall it like any other app. Use to be it wouldnt uninstall and had to freeze it in TB.
    Also, this was the first time when I installed I got the normal droid setup screen (with signing into google). That took me by suprise.

    Anyway, everything running smooth so far.. Thanks for the work on this...

    So it won't let me move any apps to SD. It just tells me there is not enough space..

    For some reason the auto-brightness won't stick for me? It randomly shuts off... any ideas?

    They just added the Google setup to the build so that's why you're seeing the initial screen this time around.

    Thanks for the answers Mags. Don't have twitter so I will just pm him when I can. Give him a thanks from the crew.

    Yeah...I use it - I have a couple of other news apps on my phone, but for quick and clean look at the news that app works quite well.

    Under terminal (or adb shell), you can run 'a2sd install' that will copy all of your apps from /data to /sdcard and all future apps will be installed to /sdcard
    You can also run 'a2sd datasd' which will move the the apps settings (/data/data) to sdcard. Will add this info to OP next week.

    This seems to be an issue w/ MIUI this week. Some people have fixed the issue by changing notification drop down from single page to custom.

    Awesome ROM as uusual, no major issues. Was wondering why lockapps couldn't be put under settings like some of the other ROMS, so much easier. Have a few apps/games that I use rarely, ie:angry birds, crackle, Netflix, that are hog's and fc when not locked. Use spur of moment and if have to open app, then open terminal, then run script, then close terminal, all the while hoping GB doesn't stop the process from running while trying to run script. Kinda a hassle(to me), especially for 5 min time waster. Just curious is all.
