Info 2 FAQ - MIUI v5 (imanesaurus)

FAQ:

Installation:

1. How do I install this Rom?
Awesome tutorial by @itseasy21
If you already have Cwm, you can proceed from step 6 on.

1. Download the prebuilt release of MIUI you wish to install.
Optional: Download any supplemental 3rd-party applications packages for the device you wish to use. (You have to install a 3rd-party app to get the Google apps, like Gmail, Play Store, and Youtube.)

2. Extract the boot.img from the zip to your computer, you will need this file for fastboot.

3. Place the MIUI .zip file on the root of the SD card.
Optional: Place any supplemental packages' .zip file on the root of the SD card.

4. Put the phone into fastboot mode:

5. Open a terminal on the PC and enter the following:
fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img
fastboot -i 0xfce reboot
While the device reboots, press the Volume rockers a few times to load recovery.

6. Once the device boots into the ClockworkMod Recovery, use the physical volume buttons to move up and down. On most devices, the power button is used to confirm your selection, although for some devices the power button is used as a "back" button to go up one level, in which case the home button is used to confirm the selection.
Optional/Recommended: Select backup and restore to create a backup of the current installation on the Xperia SP.

7. Select the option to wipe data/factory reset.

8. Select Install zip from sdcard.

9. Select Choose zip from sdcard.

10. Select the MIUI file you placed on the sdcard. You will then need to then confirm that you do wish to flash this file.
Optional: Install any additional packages you wish using the same method.

11. Once the installation has finished, return back to the main menu, and select the reboot system now option. The Xperia SP should now boot into MIUI.
I put in the spoiler to shorten the tutorial.

2. Can I install this on locked Bootloader?
-No, you cannot, because this Rom uses a different Kernel than stock. And it won't ever be possible.

3. Can I flash this over the stock Rom?
Yes, you can, as long as you have your Bootloader unlocked and Cwm installed. Please refer to question 1.

4. How can I access Cwm to update my Rom?
The Kernel of MIUI v5 doesn't have a logo or indicator. You have to press the Volume+ button several times when the phone boots up.

5. My phone is stuck on bootlogo:[I](MIUI symbol)
That's called a bootloop. As long as you can access Cwm, nothing is lost. Post here a detailed showcase what you did.

6. Nothing works anymore, can't even switch my phone on:
That can happen if you don't follow the instructions!
Download the latest Flashtool and a suiting .ftf file. Put that in the /firmwares folder in flashtool, then start it up and choose the lightning symbol and "flashmode". Follow the instructions.
It can happen that nothing happens. Then we cannot help you further, you bricked your device.


2. After the Installation:

1. I can't control my headset with it's button!
This is a known Problem with all unofficial (and buildon-) Cyanogenmod Builds.
got to
system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl
Code:
key 226 HEADSETHOOK
key 256 BUTTON_1
change to
key 226 BUTTON_1
key 256 HEADSETHOOK

That may be done via editing .xml-files inside themes. I don't know more about that, but you may find info on the Internet
There are themes that have the clock on the bottom right corner, but they don't have lock ring.

Music player - double tap on lock

The effect is probably theme - related. Look in themes/category/components/status bar

Shuffle songs via tapping on the album art in the middle of the 3 now playing screens, then it will look like this



Awesome song by the way

I already noticed that.
i don't know exactly how this one can be, maybe something wrong on my patchrom source, or maybe its a new feature for latest miui.
but if this is a bug, i will fixed it ASAP.
