Great app indeed.!
Yes, I totally agree! Did you find a solution already,?
I tried the same as you and didn't succeed either.
I also like the Miui contact app. Would be great if some Miui developer could help us out.
I'm interested to know why default Miui apps don't always (or always don't) work on non Miui roms...
(im I'm on xperia arc s with camp rom, includes Miui skinning)
