Miui
v5


First Unofficial Beta Release of Miui v5 for the Verizon HTC Droid DNA.
This was made using the Miui patchrom method, with Aosp/CM source code.

This first release, includes a mostly stock based Aosp kernel.
I have also included WSM Tools, which is the miui based Xposed equivalent.
I will also post a motion gesture enabled kernel in post 2 or 3 later.





Features:


  • Live icons:Email, Weather, Data Usage and Calendar icons push information to the launcher. Check the current weather, number of pending emails, and remaining data on yourcarrier plan without clicking into any application.
  • Beautiful weather icons: Different icon graphics for different weather conditions.
  • MiSpace added features: Launched 6 months ago, MiSpace breaks free from the traditional grid layout. Now, it continues to break these boundaries by adding in new features. Allocate icons where you want in the ‘space’ and assign and place additional icons where needed. Even add third party widgets in to your ‘space’. MiSpace is unique to MIUI, unlike any other ROMs out there.
  • Messaging now comes with a slew of new functions: Users can utilize functions such as timed messaging and pin message conversations to ensure they remain on top.
  • Find and call your contacts quicker: New tabs and format in the Phone and Contacts application allow users to quickly find and dial contacts.
  • Clock, Calendar and Compass Refreshed look: Revamped images and modifications provide a totally new experience.
  • Camera application now comes with simple or professional mode: Users have the choice of a hassle-free, simple point-and-shoot mode or professional mode with more new features that ensures you capture captivating pictures.
  • Music apps more visually appealing: MIUI ensures its ROM continues to be visually appealing even when listening to music. ‘Now playing’ feature displays album cover in full screen.
  • Weather now comes with weather trends: Now users can see the weather forecast’s high and low trends for the next 5 days.
  • Mi Wallpaper: Launching a new category in the wall paper section, MIUI users will soon see more creative live wallpapers to download and enjoy.
  • The best MIUI ROM developed so far, MIUI V5 helps user fully utilize the Android based phone and ultimately, redefine Android. MIUI will continue to bring weekly updates to the ROM to fix bugs and improvements. Note, as this is a beta version it may be still a bit buggy.



Known Issues:

GPS:
You must first get a lock on a Sense based rom before flashing, to gain a lock in Miui.

Mms:
The miui message app will not send/receive Mms.
Use the included Vzw Messaging for Mms functionality.

Network/4G:
You will need to switch to Global mode or Cdma/Evdo/LTE mode in network settings after each reboot for 4G.
As it defaults to CDMA(3G/1x) upon reboot.

FAQ


Enabling Superuser:
Security Icon on home page > Permission > Root permission (allow apps to get root permission)
Disable Downloading large apps via wifi only:
Go to Tools Folder > Downloads > Tap Settings icon @ top right > Set limit to Unlimited or whatever size you prefer (current is 1MB.)
That removes the limitation for downloading and updating apps using network data. (no longer have to use wifi only)
Reboot:
It will restart and show the splash screen twice before actually restarting and going into the boot animation.
It doesn't effect anything, other then taking a moment longer for a reboot.
Will try and improve this in an update.
Play Store:
I've included the latest Material Design Play Store.
If after first sign in, it just spins the loading wheel and doesn't load, open recent apps and close out the Play Store.
Now when you open it again, you should get the agreement prompt and should be good to go.
A reboot after this is also good, so that it can load the list of currently installed apps.

Need a Menu Button?

Flash THIS: Miui-Dna_Recents_to_Menu zip in recovery.
This will make the Recents button open Menu and then you can assign long-press action in Settings > Buttons
Home will default to Long-Press for Recents as well.

Looks like Google play is having some issues. I tried to install titanium backup and I get an error.
