I'm new to this but here we go :) This is a port of the Desire HD Miui rom 1.7.15 with english patch. I'm using parts of superkids excellent Cyanogen rom to fix the hardware issues. It's a work in progress so don't get upset if things don't work.

So far from my testing these things work (your mileage may vary):
Camera (face camera not quite yet but main camera works nicely)
WIFI
GPS
Phone
Audio
Volume Keys
etc.

Not working:
Bluetooth
Sim contacts
Video playback
probably other stuff too

Installation instructions

Full wipe, install from recovery and then flash the excellent Unity V2 kernel from here. If overclocking is your thing, I use setcpu set to 245760 min, 1209600 max with smartass scaling.

The default kernel included won't enable WIFI so if you want it, flash the Unity kernel.

Try it out and see what you think. I'll try to look at fixing things as and when i get to them but bluetooth isn't going to be high on my priority list as I don't use it (but you're welcome to pull the rom apart and give it a whirl yourself!) I don't have a lot of time so if you want to try fixing things, please do as we'll all benefit :)

wifi can be worked if using MDJ V2 kernel

How about battery cost?

Can the phone sleep correctly?

Now all the MIUI roms have a battery drain because the phone sleeps incorrectly.

No probs. Wifi not working is a ROM issue, I have that kernel flashed to my own custom ROM, wifi is fine.

Looking forward to seeing more MIUI development ... and some screenshots too

Thanks for letting us know. I was concerned that you might try this one and be unhappy with it. On a more serious note, this kind of post does not help anyone! Did you even download this rom to try it or are you just informing us that you won't be happy until a 100% working Miui rom falls into your lap. We'd all love a perfectly working Miui rom but it won't happen overnight!

You're in a development forum, by it's very nature, you're not going to ever see many 100% working roms, hence the development in the forum name.

@belantara
you need to understand that the devs are doing this in their free time & are not asking for anything in return other than a little support
so if you have a negative comment why do you want to post it & discourage them??it isnt always easy finding the bugs & correcting them

I find it great that there is a seperate thread for miui development now. Due to the fact that all the other miui roms are developed on extern sites.

I hope that more developers will start helping here.

I am not sure but why aren't working let's say miui-developers together to make a more stable, faster, and more complete rom. I meen we are a community here. Nobody has to fight against the others.
I've seen it for a long time in the HTC Hero forums, that developers try to beat each other instead of working together to make something great.

Like i can see here it's the same, yes sure it's difficult that someone works together with the chinese developers but it would be possilbe to work together with the guy from the english miui forum, who made a great version too?

After that it would be possilbe to ask some devs from other roms for help. i am sure no one will say oh no i fight this rom-war on my own. stop asking for help.

In fact the main idea of forums was the easy way to exchange information between persons from different countries, even with different languages. So they can work together and so they will be able to make better things. Like you can see it over at stackoverflow, someone has a question the other will help him.

why so much devs forget this fact?

--------------------


Oh and i am happy to see someone who tries his luck with cooking a rom


--------------------

If i had more time and some idea of cooking roms i would help you, but i think with my java knowledge i can't help that much.

Keep up your work it's great.
