Default [WIP] MIUI for Arc [Devs invited]

Since we do have some progress on CM7 for our device, why don't we start the development on MIUI as well?

Just to give you an idea of what MIUI is:

http://en.miui.com/

Developers are welcome! I am really new in porting builds in kitchens, but I am ready to get my hands dirty on this one

I have knowledge on working in linux environments, compiling kernel/modules, scripting, but lack of android kitchen knowledge, any pointers where to start will be great!

With jerpela/blagus and other developer's permission, perhaps if I have any questions and or needed files/drivers/etc for building MIUI up, I can ask?

I'll start a git hub or cvs for this project as well - let me know if you wanna get involved too!

this might be a good place to start...

[TUTORIAL] porting miui nexus rom to x10

BTW... Arc is using MSM8255 chip... so u can look at all compatible devices... like HTC Desire HD, HTC Desire Z, others....

u will mostly have to uses/mix files from SE stock libs + other places...


just one request... whenever u use files from someone else kindly give them credit for it, cause they have worked hard to make those fles working... a link to their ROM/patch/etc would be also be a good idea...


best of luck!

Start over with your project. We can give help @ some problems, but not at all now

BTW: I cannot understand why you like MIUI, but that's quite personal :P I hate Iphone noobish layout.

Bin4ry: one of the few reasons is that it has a fully customizable theming engine in the back where u can just customize quite a lot of things like status bar, fonts, icons, etc, instead of using a third party launcher. Anyway like you said, it's a personal taste thing

Thanks everyone for the heads up, will spend the long weekend to work on this!

CM7 theme engine is great.

BTW, I'm not a dev and don't understand about porting FW right now. but I'm really interested about this android world and custom FW. Maybe I'll start with reading thread you provided

CM7 theme management is great, mind you, but again it's personal taste I guess. Been living on CM7 since G2 Hero, HD Mini, X10, HD2, Desire Z, SGS, got tired I guess I like the fact that MIUI allows customization based on components instead of a full theme overhaul, and notifications are top-to-bottom toast popups, built in ftp, fonts, etc. Perhaps these can all be replaced by updating framework-res, or installing customized fonts, etc. But ease of use is also my concern...

Aaaaanyway before i go full throttle and brag on about its good vs bad, I shall stop and thank DooMLoRD for the X10 guide!
