    As far as I can tell, he hasn't been involved in the last two or three versions, so my guess is the ports will keep rolling without him. Jamezelle is doing a great job with it.

    Yeah I later found out he was in charge of the dinc ports but he did help out the entire community alot. Jamezell and metiCkOne have been doing an amazing job with the Droid port

    n_i_x will most likely still help out and provide advice/help to jamezelle for D1, but he wont be doing Dinc, at least not right now.

    Im surprised the rom is still in beta. It seems like its been in beta for a long time now. I dont see it getting out of beta anytime soon as the devs in china keep adding more crap w/o fixing whats broken. Yeah...great features...I love MIUI, but sadly dissappointing lately. I kept telling myself I could live with all the little quirky things and the lag at times, but...finally one day I broke...after a reboot...and after my girl had kept complaining to me that this or that didnt work.

    Once its fixed and stable it will be great. Im actually surprised as I always had the impression that the chinese were thorough and put great quality into their work.

    yakitori, are you saying the issues we have on the droid are present on the original hardware the rom is targeted for?

    i was always under the impression the issues were due to the porting process to a different phone.....

    The reason that the problems exist are because its a port.

    Not entirely true. Many of the issues are across all phones. Reboots, SMS issues for example.
    The issues from the port can and will be resolved, jamezelle is extremely busy, right now. MIUI has promised to stabilize and optimize the next couple of weeks. Right before they change the UI once again:)

    SOME of the problems are due to port. I mean, the rom is not designed for the d1. As hopper stated, the problems are across all phones (some of the problems), if you read the MIUI dev forums for other phones you will see the same issues on other phones that exist with this ROM for the D1.

    Thing is...yes...it does all go back to the devs in china. Look at some of these other custom roms that are out. They are optimized for lots of different phones, but dont have as widespread of problems.

    While it has great features, IMO, it is not on par with some features of UD.

    I think we are forgetting one of the things that makes this rom so important. It's as close as you can come to a complete overhaul of the d1. Not just the UI, but everything. The devs for MIUI have taken droid 1 moding and gone in a direction that nobody has really successfully gone before, at least to my knowledge.

    This is still in it's infancy. Now at this point in MIUI, I'm really only hanging with it because of the Dialer, SMS, Top-Bar Battery, and a few other random features. And I don't experience enough serious issues to move to a different rom. I've tried most of the roms on DF, and they all kind of blend together. Outside of a few features here and there, nothing really comes close to what MIUI has done and is still improving upon.

    I never really understood the rom loyalty that a lot of people seem to have. The whole "you're with this rom or you're against" mentality doesn't really make sense to me and seems counterproductive.

    The roms are more likely to improve when people are using it and reporting bugs, not when people experience bugs and move on. This goes for all roms, not just MIUI.

    i love this rom and i truley hope it continues to get better. im running it now and have no intentions of switching back anytime soon. the only complaint i have is the lack of screen rotation. i know its not coded to do it, but for these phones, its an important feature to me.

    im hoping that soon it will happen.
