FIXES AND MODS ONLY

SINCE MIUI V4 HAS BEEN BASED ON CM9, MANY OF THESE FIXES MAY WORK

DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS WITHIN THE THREAD

We already have the entire CM9 main thread overrun by repeat questions.

If you have a question regarding something on here, Private Message either myself or the persons I am crediting so that we may help you without mucking up this Thread with "Can you help me with this?"

Feel free to add Mods and Fixes that you feel might be useful for others.
If you didn't make it, be sure to give credit to the person who did.
Please also post a link to their original post so others can thank them for their work.

Thanks to everyone who developed these fixes and to the devs for putting together a great ROM for our phones.

FYI...I DID NOT MAKE THESE MODS OR FIXES (UNLESS I SPECIFY THAT I DID PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER). PLEASE GIVE THANKS TO THE PEOPLE WHO CAME UP WITH THESE FIXES AND MODS

Proper Flashing of ROMs (updated 9/6)
PROPER FLASHING OF ROM

Requirements:

Photon 4g-Must be rooted, unlocked, and have CWM on it (I recommend Jokerax's CWM V3)
A ROM ZIP
Gapps .zip


If you have already rooted, unlocked, and CWM'ed, skip 1-4

1) FIRST, go HERE and watch this video. It's how to install Android SDK. This will be important if you mess something up later and need to reinstall SBF. It also allows you to flash CWM to your phone.

2) Unlock Bootloader: Watch the video HERE. The links to the files you need will be in the "show more" area of the video. This will have you unlocked and ready for next step.

3) Rooting/CWM: Watch the video HERE. The links to the files you will need will be shown in the "show more" area of the video. Now you will be rooted and have CWM on your phone

4) Joker's CWM: Since this was made with his CM9 build in mind, I recommend using it for all your CM9 flashing needs. Using other ones can cause problems.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Go to Joker's site (Jokersax.com) and download the "cwm-non corrupted" in the "Cyanogenmod9 for Photon 4G" section, placing the file on somewhere on your phone you can easily find (I usually create a folder in my SD-Card called "ROMS".
Boot into your recovery and select "install zip from sd card"
Find the CWM .zip where you put it, and flash it.
You will now have Joker's CWM on your phone and be ready for flashing

NOW YOU ARE READY TO FLASH

PROPER FLASHING:

STANDARD FLASH ROMS
1) Place ROM zip onto storage on your phone (of your choice)
2) Reboot into recovery
3) Make a Backup (if you don't, it's YOUR bad if you mess up...)
4) Use Wipe All Zip found HERE
or
Wipe /system, /data, /cache manually
This is recommended...some roms you can get away with just Cache and Dalvik wipe, but many require the full wipe treatment
5) Flash Rom zip
6) Flash Gapps (optional)
7) Reboot and Enjoy

AROM BASED ROMS
1) Place ROM zip onto storage on your phone
2) Reboot into recovery
3) Make a Backup
4) Go to Advanced Menu
5) Choose Report Error
6) Choose Show Log
7) Choose Reboot Recovery
***THESE 3 STEPS SHOULD BE DONE ANY TIME YOU FLASH AN AROMA BASED ROM***
8) Flash Rom zip
9) Inside rom, you can choose your wipe option and other options.
10) Install
11) Reboot and Enjoy

CHEERS!

E-Z WIPE ZIPs (updated 9/6)
Hope you all like them...

Wipe-All.zip

Go to the site to download the file

WIPE-ALL.zip
Formats:
/Cache
/System
/Data
Dalvik-cache

WIPE-CACHE-DALVIK.zip
Formats:
/Cache
Dalvik-cache

Just CWM flash them like any other zip. MUCH faster and more reliable than manually doing it...not to mention no chance of accidentally formatting wrong partitions

Version 0.3.1
THIS IS FOR ANYONE WHO FULLY WIPED BEFORE INSTALLING 0.3.3 AND ARE HAVING DIFFICULTIES WITH IT NOT BOOTING (OR IF YOU JUST WANT TO RUN 0.3.1 ON YOUR PHONE INSTEAD

Photon CM9 0.3.1

If you run into issues with 0.3.3 not booting up after doing a fresh install, do the following:
1) Format /System, /Data, and /Cache (can use the Wipe-All-Photon.zip in POST 6 for this)
2) Flash 0.3.1 from above link and Gapps
3) Reboot and allow phone to come to main screen but do not sign in, reboot back into recovery
4) Wipe /Cache and Dalvik (can use Wipe-Cache-Dalvik-Photon.zip in POST 8 for this)
5) Flash 0.3.(2, 3 +++)
6) Fix permissions
7) Reboot...should work now

All Apps work. may get a FC on first usage...go to "system settings", "applications", "all", force stop the app, then clear data. App should restart without any problem.

.zip will wipe cache and dalvik for you, so you don't need to unless you feel like doing it doubly

Here are a few ICS themed apks for Cm9, I did not create these just been going through every phones subsections scouring for ICS themed apks

Gmail and LatinIME.apk need to go into system/app

Clear cashe and data before renaming the preinstalled ones with ".bak" as back ups.

Dropbox and XDA(free version) can go in data/app

Make sure to fully uninstall Dropbox and XDA apps if you've already have them installed before installing these themed apks.
When I get to a computer later and have a bit more time, I'll find the threads that I got them from so proper thanks can be made to them.
