Hello flo users.

First of all, I was not the creator of this rom. I did not port it from another device, I merely brought it from miuiandroid.com, so all credits go for Xiaomi & miuiandroid.com

This is the fourth public release for flo. So please keep in mind, bugs, incomplete functions and other issues might arise.

The usual warranty disclaimer:
Quote:

Your warranty is now void.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed, your mobile running away from you, getting divorced because you got enthusiastic with the girl in the corner showing her off your kick ass android, having hemorrhoids because a flash went wrong, your android pet gets frustrated because you keep flashing stuff and punches you, the whole thing gets hot to the point where it melts everything it touches, a force close happening right when you're using an app to control the earth magnetic poles and creating havoc, etc etc. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it!
YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if, you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
Ok maybe I won't, but you get it. Actually I'll laugh my ass off and then I'll be sorry. But still I won't help you. Maybe I will. Or maybe I won't. Or maybe I'll hire a professional killer to[STOPTHISNONSENSE]



"MIUI is one of the most popular Android ROMs in the world. It is based on 4.4.x (for flo device] featuring better experience and richer themes.
and MIUI offers alot of Free and Paid Themes, clocks and wallpapers. It is very customizable."

Gapps are not included - you need to flash them separately

Instructions:
1 - Backup whatever you need using an app of your choice (optional)
2 - Reboot to recovery (I'm using CWM, far as I'm aware TWRP works too).
3 - Wipe internal partitions (data, system, dalvik cache, cache)
4 - Flash the rom &/or whatever mods you wanna flash, but not GAPPS.
5 - Reboot to the rom, choose your language.
6 - Reboot to recovery again, flash gapps.
7 - Reboot & enjoy a kick ass release!

Gapps need to be installed separately from the rom.

Thread @ miuiandroid

Changelog for 4.3.21

Credits:
Xiaomi - For the firmware. They developed it, they are the masters, they are "it".
miuiandroid, for the multi languages available and everything else.
XDA, do I need to say for what?

This is a AOSP based rom. So AOSP kernels will work.

I intend to update this thread as new updates come out (every friday / weekend).
Mods and other stuff, coming soon...

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by bringing this rom here. It's merely with the intention of keeping the info concentrated in this thread. Related your experiences with this rom here. We'll try to help each other in what we can.

----- About Kernels -----

Since MIUI is based on AOSP, any AOSP kernel will work. Feel free to pick one and flash it. You'll notice some improvements in terms of performance.

Just a warning for anyone that wants to use this ROM with Polish language, upon choosing it you will end up with endless com.android.systemui FC and there is no fix for that.

There seems to be some people mentioning that either takes a while to lock or doesn't work at all. I don't think much testing was done anyway.
However if someone is still using the rom could give as an answer. If it's a matter of taking a while to lock, I would ask them to try an app to help with GPS locking (like GPS Status or alike).
It would be very much appreciated

Thanks for the report!
You're using stock kernel right? Could you try another kernel (AOSP) and see if the issue persists?
Anyway, I had some issues with other roms where I had to be outside to lock it, not sure if having wifi on helps the GPS lock, helping with accuracy I get it, but not sure about locking.

Yes, stock kernel. Can you point me out to a compatible kernel?

Any AOSP kernel will work. You have CAF kernels and AOSP kernels.

I'm gonna take the opportunity to put these on the OP.

As I said, it's just a matter of testing, you might else notice some performance improvements depending the kernel you pick, although IMHO they are all quite good.

So the results are the same even with a custom kernel right?
Then it's a rom issue.
I'm gonna post on miuiandroid forums about it, but keep in might this is a first release, it's a long way until it's perfect and they probably have other priorities
