Ok guys... So, I'm having a hell of a time getting the SMS bug fixed, so here's what I'm going to do: For now, I'm going to focus on fixing the bugs that exist in 2.4.6 (Signal bars, torch, wifi tethering, etc.). I have a couple good MIUI.us guys helping with trying to fix SMS, but they're struggling a bit too. This seems to be a bug that is only affecting the Fascinate.
What does this mean for future MIUI releases for the Fascinate?
We are doing everything we can to make sure the Fascinate sees more MIUI v4 goodness. Since I'm having trouble with fixing SMS, I feel my time would be more wisely spent fixing the other bugs in the ROM. I'm hoping that by the time the other bugs are fixed, MIUI will work out the SMS bug itself. Keep in mind, there are a couple people still working on fixing the SMS bug also.
I decided to go this route because it seems that with each release, there's some new major bug that needs fixed, such as SMS, and it doesn't leave me any time to fix the smaller bugs.
Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to let you all know what my plans are and also that we're doing everything we can to get past this damn SMS bug.
