aceoyame presents to you...

MIUI4DX2 Beta 1


Bear with me for the awful quality of the screenshots. Screenshots crash the system server. Took these photos with my iPod Touch.


To see the screenshots in large size, goto: http://imgur.com/a/n63L9

This wouldn't have been here without the combined efforts of all the devs who worked on 2nd-init and CM7 so thanks to all and of course thanks to aceoyame (I DID NOT MAKE THIS AT ALL, JUST POSTING IT ON BEHALF OF ACEOYAME).

Note:
This requires Dragonzkiller's modified BSR (posted in CM7 thread and linked here for convenience).

Includes:
  • Same Hardware working as CM7 i.e. CDMA/3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera.
  • ICS Framework
  • MIUI US apps
  • MIUI Control panel
  • Black Ice theme default

Known Issues:
  • MIUI's camera FC's on saving pictures. This release is using CM7's camera app which works
  • Screenshots are crashing system server
  • The Black Ice Theme may not apply fully on install. Just choose it in the theme manager after install and you should be good to go.
  • FM and HDMI is not working

How to Install:
  1. Nandroid Backup
  2. SBF to 2.3.4 unless you are already there.
  3. Root your Motorola Droid X2.
  4. Install the Motorola Droid X2 Bootstrap Recovery (BSR).
  5. Put the MIUI4DX2 zip and the dragonzkiller's patched BSR apk on the external SD card.
  6. Boot into BootStrap Recovery.
  7. YOU MUST WIPE DATA AND CACHE! This has 4.0 framework and is very different from CM7's or any other ROM's 2.3.x framework.
  8. Install the MIUI4DX2 zip.
  9. IMPORTANT! Wipe data and cache (factory reset) and wipe dalvik cache!
  10. Boot your phone into MIUI. (You will probably have to activate if you didn't after you SBF'd and setup your Google account here.)
  11. Install the patched Motorola Droid X2 Bootstrap Recovery (BSR). (This can be found in the download section of this post. Once you have MIUI4DX2 installed, you MUST install this BSR!)
  12. Go into the Android Market and update the apps on the phone.
  13. Sit back and enjoy MIUI on your DX2!
  14. Never user RomManager! NEVER DELETE ANYTHING FROM PREINSTALL!


NOTE: If you get a hang on the M after the install, it may be because you did not wipe data and cache. Try getting into stock recovery by having the phone off, pressing the Vol Down and Power Buttons until the "Fastboot" appears on your screen, scroll DOWN until you see the "Android Recovery" and press Vol Up. You will then see an android with an exclamation point. Press BOTH volume buttons and scroll down to "Wipe Data." Press the power button to select it and scroll down to "Yes" and select that. Then reboot and WAIT! The initial boot takes the longest. If this still doesn't work, THEN SBF and follow the directions above EXACTLY.

Using the Patched Bootstrap Recovery With MIUI4DX2
In order to get into recovery with MIUI4DX2 you ABSOLUTELY MUST download the patched BSR APK located in the download section of this post! There was a problem with the "hijack" name. It is conflicting with the CM7 hijack (MIUI uses CM7 hijack). NEVER install the original BSR while in MIUI4DX2! This is a guaranteed way to boot loop your phone! It might not boot loop the first couple of reboots, but it will... Eventually!

Download:
Put these on your EXTERNAL sd card.

Patched BSR APK by dragonzkiller

Stay tuned for upcoming releases:
Next release will have added scripts, a few fixes and possibly working FM - via aceoyame twitter

YOU CAN POST BUG REPORTS HERE, BUT IDEALLY PING ACEOYAME ON TWITTER @aceoyame.

P.S.: You can donate to aceoyame by sending him a beer to paypal at: schmidt_nathan2002@hotmail.com

Peace \m/

Pretty smooth so far. I haven't gone and installed all my apps yet. But so far, I like how smooth it seems to be at the launcher. Definitely looks like iOS in some areas.

Still learning the ins-and-outs of this ROM but hey, it cures my flashing bug I have. It's been over a week since I last flashed something and I was getting jittery!

I can confirm that the SD flip/flop is in effect. Your external card is mounted to /sdcard and the internal is mounted to /emmc. Not sure if this is just a carry-over from CM7 since I just flashed over CM7 and didn't SBF.

Ok as posted in the older thread when sitting on the home screen and pressing the up volume rocker 2 to 3 time it causes a hot reboot, coupled with that the sound settings are taking effect or something because I get sound on and off on the system. example I have it set to click when selecting an item and it doesn't, however the unlock sound does work. The music player doesn't play, it gives you about 2 secs of play (no sound) and then stops. It doesn't FC or anything just doesn't work.

I have tried a reboot to fix some of these with no luck.

EDIT: Changing from the default theme fixed the sounds issues.

Slim!

I did the big 3 (coming from CM7), it installed just fine. It looks nice so far, gonna spend some time testing.



Edit:

General note:

1. Quadrant scores almost identical to CM7, just a couple points higher
2. GUI is smooth and fast
3. A few lags on the "Fruit Ninja" test

Issues so far:

1. Camcorder freaks out and freezes when I try to record.
2. Radio FC
3. MX player sound cuts out while video continues to play.

Downloaded but scared to flash while I'm at work with no way to sbf lol. I have longed for MIUI since I switched from my og Droid to the x2. So a huge thanks goes out to Ace and DK for all their hard work. I'll be doing some donating in the near future to both dev. Not sure where I can donate to ace at since he no longer post here though. Guess I'll ask him on twitter.

OK, I see settings for a launcher but when I set it to load I don't see anything different? Is there an actual launcher (with and app drawer) or am I mis-understanding this?

Thanks, Slim!

Not seeing 4.0 anything. Its all 2.3.4, 2.3.5, 2.3.7 mismatch. What exactly is 4.0?

For me, the lags on Fruit Ninja THD are bad. In fact, unplayable. Same goes with the non-THD version of FJ. Fruit Ninja PiB runs great.

I'll have to see if there's anything to tweak.

Otherwise, other things look pretty darned good. I've never ran MIUI before and I like what I see.
