MIUI.us-Sholes-1.9.23

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. In the last release restoring WIFI data caused bootloops, I do not know about 1.9.23 yet

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).

I actually didn't fix it. I am not exactly sure what was causing the problem, but MIUI changed something that was causing the builds to have different issues. With the Milestone and D1, they would not mount the FAT partition of the SD card. The guys at MIUI.us fixed it all up. I saw they were going to update the roms, but I was waiting for a post that said they were up, which I don't think they ever sent. Otherwise this would have been posted sooner. But I just used the fixed release of the Milestone to port it to the D1 like every week.

Thanks for keeping this awesome Rom up to date for us og droid users.

Is there a way to not have the screen turn on when the keyboard is opened? I know it was possible at one time but I can't find the setting.

Can anybody help with this as I was unable to do it with the last version of MIUI either? How do you change kernels and get virtuous overclock to work with the new kernel? Is that not possible? I have RZR 2.03 and I have tried to flash a Cor Cor kernel and a P.E. 6.5 version 4 beta kernel. I have tried to do it with removing the virtuous overclock and resinstalling it. I have even run fix permissions from Rom Manager. Virtuous overclock will always force close.

I was hoping to install a kernel of about 1.0GHz, but I don't think I actually need it anymore. Since I raised the screen off min to 400MHz and the max to 550MHz, my phone is experiencing less lag and responds generally faster. I just want to know how to do it jic I decide to try and change the kernel.

I thought I read somewhere that if you uninstall virtuous clocker, install new kernel, then install virtuous clocker it will hookup. Haven't tried it yet myself, but do have virtuous clocker downloaded.

As always, make backups before charging in....

I tried that and it forced closed for me. I thought that would have been the best method for this to work. This seems weird to me. I don't claim to be the best at hacking, but I have done a lot of flashing and have been relatively decent at following troubleshooting methods.

When you install the new kernel, wipe cache and dalvik. You can also try clearing data on the Virtuous app (settings -> programs -> manage applications). It could also be the kernel you are using is reporting its frequencies in a different method than the stock and others which could be causing the issue.

I can confirm that it still boot loops if you try to restore Wi-Fi settings using MIUI Backup.

Only issue is the erratic battery jumps. I'm going to calibrate and see if that helps. I went from 80% to 20% after 15 mins of web browsing

Anyone know how to get compcache working with Chevy kernels? Or is it not compatible with this ROM? Swap scripts work great with the stock kernel and a couple versions ago I had it working with prime's kernel, but no luck so far with Chevy.

Magiman, could you post a link to the kernel only, or point me in the right direction on how to preserve/pack/strip the kernel from the rom. I like testing out other kernels than stock, but I find myself wishing I could revert to stock with out reflashing the whole rom.
