Default MIUI MMS Size Fix - 1.12.9, 1.12.16 (MMS Size Changed), 2.3.4a

So, i got fed up with dealing with thumbnail MMS for TMOUS while using MIUI, and i dont believe using a different txt messaging app is a viable solution, thus, i took matters into my own hands and edited the UA in the messaging app to NexusOne.

!!!NEW CHANGES!!!
This uses the N95 UA and Uaprof for carrier compatibility reasons.
The MMS Size has been changed to 120000 per request from relldroid

I tested this on my own phone without any issues.


Based off of 1.12.16, 1.12.9 and the latest stable 2.3.4a

Simply boot into CWRecovery and flash like any other update

Let me know of any issues, and i'll try to help as much as possible
Thank you.


INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Download file for your chosen build
2) Save it to your SDCARD (root dir is the easiest)
3) Boot into CWM Recovery
4) Select "load zip from SDCARD"
5) Select zip file on SDCARD
6) Reboot
-6a) It can be considered safe measure to wipe the cache and Dalvik cache prior to rebooting. No harm no foul
--Alternatively, if you use Rom Manager, you can use that as well. That program works directly with CWM Recovery.

How-To for yourselves
Hard Method;
Req - SystemUI.apk, Framework.apk, MMS.apk (all from the same build, no mismatching) APKManager (google is your friend )
1, install APKManager
2, move SystemUI.apk -> c:\users\*your username here*\APKTool\
3, rename Framework.apk -> 1.apk
4, move 1.apk -? c:\users\*your username here*\APKTool\Framework\
5, move MMS.apk -> ~\apkmanager\place-apk-here-for-editing
6, run apkmanager from the installed directory (instructions of how to run it is with the download)
7, decompile mms.apk
8, within the \projects\ folder, there will be a folder labeled MMS, locate the xml file mms_config
9, edit the string userAgent -> NexusOne (other useagents can also work, NexusOne is a known working one for HD2 + TMOBILE)
10, once edited, compile, hit yes, then yes
11, follow the one screen instructions (it's straight forward)
12, rename the newly created apk unsignedMMS.apk (located in \place-apk-here-for-modding) to MMS.apk
13, place the new MMS.apk into the \system of your phone
14, reboot

Easy method:
Req - latest MMS fix
1, download my latest fix
2, unzip
3, unzip the mms.apk (treating the mms.apk as a zip file)
4, locate mms_config.xml
5, copy to the new mms.apk (again, treating as a zip file
6, move to \system of your phone
7, reboot

Use only the above instructions if you know what you are doing, I take no responsibilities in any damage/issues caused by the provided methods.

Im using JW MIUI 1.4.29 -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1050645

How i went about it is that i put the mms.apk in the root of my sd card using ES File Explorer (which supports system rw mounting) then copied the file into \system\app\, overwriting the original.
If you try to install it as a normal apk, it will reject it, since it's a system app
