Default Official MIUI Support...

I was browsing the xiaomi site and I found that it has a download for miui on the "HTC butterfly dna" but I don't know which phone it's for, though the picture of the device is obviously the Verizon DNA, so if anyone wants to try it i'll put the link for the official download and you guys can post the results.

MY DEVICES
HTC DROID DNA: ViperDNA 3.5.0
Xperia Play: CM10
HTC Droid Incredible: Rooted, Unlocked, CM10

I tried it a few weeks ago, because I was curious. DO NOT FLASH IT.
The ROM works just fine, but it's meant for GSM-only on the Butterfly/DNA. It won't connect to the Verizon network at all, even after modifying the radio settings and doing the *#*#4636#*#* dialer trick to default to CDMA. After you flash it, with any other subsequent ROM you flash afterwards, the radio will still be broken. The only solution to fix it is re-flash the stock recovery and stock radio again.

It probably wouldn't be *too* much work to modify the ROM to make it Verizon-compatible, but I haven't had time to look into it much. All I know is it won't work as is.

I should also point out that MIUI for HTC devices is currently based on Android 4.2, so app performance isn't as good as it could be.

Once MIUI is re-based to 4.4, it should be easier to fix the GSM-defaulting issue as well, due to the OS improvements on that front.

It should. I've had no problems beforehand.

Sorry to bring up an old thread (deja vu?), but what is the chance we will see MIUI V6 ported to the DNA? I would do it myself but I don't know anything about porting at all. :\

I could do it. As long as we get a MIUI V6 ROM on a working CDMA base, (preferably the VZW HTC One) I could port it over to the DNA no problem.

What would it take to get it on a CDMA base, in terms of under the hood code?

could you compile/build one for GSM? A lot of us DNA users are using our devices on GSM carriers these days......


Here is a link to the latest MIUI for HTC One (m7)

If you have GSM, there should already be a working port for you...

(Haven't tested it personally, but feel free to take a look.)

I would love MIUI also but be careful the butterfly is a different phone then ours

v4.7.11 hangs at the MIUI bootscreen. It does not matter if you flash the 18mb 4.7.11 update on top of 4.7.4 or flash the full 4.7.11 Rom, same result.

The previous version 4.7.4 boots just fine but gives a storage is full error every now and then when trying to install apps.
