    MIUI.us-Sholes-1.9.30

    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. If you get permission denied, root not found, or similar errors, make sure you have "ROOT Permission" set to ON under SuperUser Settings
    12. If you get repeated acore / system fc on first boot after flashing, try rebooting to see if it goes away

    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).

    Anyone notice any problems with Maps/Navigation?
    I had reported a problem with address links in my calendar not functioning on 1.9.23 which I got resolved but when I went to use the links and maps the other day the phone froze and went into a boot loop. After loading 1.9.30 last night after a full wipe and running it through it's paces I got the maps problem again but this time it just froze and rebooted... no loop.

    Suggestions???

    Possibly a different CPU setting? I have not changed it from the stock setting... I usually don't play with CPU settings.

    I just launched maps via an address link in my calendar and it opened fine. It hung longer then I'd like, but that's gingerbread on d1.

    You can try to run a faster kernel. I recommend Chevy medV before trying the lower volts. Ditto for speeds also.

    You can also try the swap option, and or run the V6 super charge script and try another minifree setting

    This is running so sweet with the stock kernel and compcache I don't even WANT to change it to a faster model. This rom has sure come a long ways!

    Thanks Chewy... Mine did not freeze upon opening but when I tried to close or do something else. I'll run this stock fro a few days and see what happens. I really don't want to get into modding the kernel or scripts if I can help it especially on a DEV version that may change and correct the issue anyway.

    Yes, MIUI made a change that caused the scrollable widgets patch mess up widgets updating. MIUI.us is looking into it and will try to fix it for next week.

    Sno: you can experiment with kernels without worry. Mags was kind enough to package the default kernel in an update zip to flash back to stock

    I think I found a fix whether or not there was actually a problem... I had a few Force Close or Wait messages come up today I was going to make a backup using ROM Manager and opened it and saw where running "Fix Permissions" might cure force close issues. I had done this previously on other ROMs but forgot about it. I ran "Fix Permissions" and EVERYTHING seems to run smoother. Maybe the ROM just settled in or maybe it's my imagination but I'll run it stock (or close) for a few days and see what happens.

    I am running Launcher Pro Plus but other than that everything is stock. The MIUI browser seems quicker than the stock android browser too.

    Fix permissions does fix a lot of fc issues on apps. If you are still getting lag go into recovery and wipe cache and dalvik

    Does importing themes work in this release? The previous release I kept getting force closes when trying to import

    Oh fyi, for those that have tons of apps, I find that putting some in folders helps greatly with launcher speed and helps speed up the launcher loading after a reboot

    Made it through the day OK... just had one reboot when I was trying to zoom maps and the phone rang at the same time. Had a couple times I had to wait for commands to catch up but I find that setting up to kill apps on long press of back or long pressing home and hitting the task killer helped minimize issues. I know... android manages it's own memory requirements killing apps as needed but with the narrow margin of available memory in the D1 it can use all the help it can get IMO.

    Battery use was pretty high today but I was playing with the phone quite a bit more than usual. I'll get a full charge in it and clear batt stats and see how it holds up tomorrow.

    Reboots constantly

    I've been running 1.9.16 since release, and it has been really stable. Tried 9.23, and it froze/rebooted constantly. Tried 9.30, same result. When I go back to 9.16, it's all good again, and I haven't change a thing. ?????
