First off I do not own an i605 myself but have the l900 (sprint) which is almost the same device. Hardware wise there is only a tiny difference which is in the partition setup. Sprint uses a different data partition mccblk0p17 where all other N2's use mccblk0p16 the other is our mccblk0p16 which contains special files used by sprint on their stock roms (just to make our lives more difficult). I have been working with @lacoursiere18 on a few of my projects for the l900 and we tried to port an earlier version of MIUI for our devices before he got busy with school. Since then I have successfully ported over MIUI to the l900 and i605. Brian has been nice enough to test build out and confirm it works great on the i605. So now I am releasing this for your flashing pleasure. I also took a little extra time and modified Plasma 2.55 to work with MIUI and gotten permission from @ffolks (a few months ago) to post the modified kernel for everyone to use.



Well everyone (l900 users and those who browse the l900 forums) already knows I hate doing OP's so they stay pretty simple and this wont will be any different. Also MIUI users know that there are weekly updates but since this is a port and I have so many projects going on. It might be a month or two between my releases.



This is ported from the N7100 which is based on Omni rom. Original rom is located here and is the one by mdiary. So far only issues I know of it call recorder does not work (just says being used by another app) and you have to go into settings..mobile networks..network mode and change to CDMA+LTE/EvDO to enable 4g after every boot. If you flash any gapps package you will lose gps. If you continue to read the OP I will give instructions on how to setup your MIUI rom to get the most out of it.


So I took the base and turned it into a full featured rom with a whole mess of add-ons and tweaks.

Included items/tweaks/mods
Adfree (although I already have a host list created)
dolphin browser
dolphin jetpack plugin
adobe flash 11.1 kk
es file manager
LG G3 Keyboard and a few themes
WSM (MIUI Xposed)
Mi-Tools module (like wanam or gravity box)
Paid themes module (all miui themes are free)
AOSP Dash Clock widget
AOSP Calender widget
Terminal emulator
A bunch of build.prop tweaks
A bunch of init.d scripts (to enable them continue reading the OP)




Bug list

MIUI-i605 4.9.5
Any Omni bugs
call recording does not work
If you flash any gapps besides mine you will lose gps

Change Log

MIUI-i605 4.9.5 9-8-14

Downloads
Flashing instructions
1. Backup internal sdcard to you PC or external sdcard (this will really help prevent issues
2. Boot into recovery and backup current rom
3. Do a factory reset (if using philz/cwm do clean for new rom)
4. Format/wipe internal sdcard (if you dont do this and have issues first thing I will say is format it)
5. Reboot back into recovery (this will create your internal sdcard dir structure)
6. Flash MIUI and boot it
7. After initial setup power off and boot into recovery
8. Flash Gapps (please do it in this order or you will end up wiping and reflashing)
9. Boot into rom
10. Go to post #3 and follow those steps


Do not flash any kernel besides the modified Plasma or your rom wont boot. If there is an AOSP kernel you want to use let me know and I will make it compatible.


Plasma 2.55 MIUI edition Synapse is included in this flashable zip

Importaint tips for MIUI
Simple things for now

1. Open security (located on first screen)..permissions.. and turn on root permission
2. Open WSM tools (miui xposed) and click install DO NOT reboot yet
3. At top of the screen you will see < Manage click here and enable all three modules
4. Reboot phone and setup Mi-Tools to your liking and reboot for settings to be applied
5. Open settings... general settings tab... mobile networks... network mode... set to CDMA+LTE/EvDO (will have to do this every boot to have 4g(LTE)
6. If you want to use a different launcher ( I dont like the iOS style launcher myself ) open settings... general settings... display... default launcher.. and select launcher3 or whatever you have installed yourself
7. Setup your google account and enjoy

Some things are in Chinese
in settings... general settings.. stock settings you will see two chinese options the top one is your advanced settings for samsung devices the bottom one is your Mi-POP settings (that circle with the back icon)




BELOW IS A NICE GUIDE FOR MIUI

The yellow dotted indicator in the bottom bar of the app shows number (16) of gps satellites found:
