MIUI has selectively released v5 already.
Sadly I really don't have much time left in my schedule for doing ROM updates. I planned on doing some weeklies for you guys with v4 as I FINALLY got things smooth and transferable between base updates, but unfortunately Xiaomi picked the EOL date of v4 as soon as I figured out how to get weeklies going nicely.
Working with AOSP-- well not even... Working with MIUI is a giant pain in the butt and takes a lot of effort and time. I do put effort in to everything I do so I can't say that I don't have that, but time is something I lack at the moment.
Well that and the fact I've been very stressed out lately.
I've managed to get myself in way too many extra-circular activities, I do college classes for my sister and brother-in-law, I get bullied for being a gay-nerd/geek, I take ALL honors/AP courses in school, and a lot of other issues have sprung up lately...
It really was fun though. I don't regret getting into dramatic forum arguments over this ROM, or opening up several threads about it. I love MIUI and I loved making it an enjoyable experience for this device. I mean it wasn't just me, Bleelas, and others have helped as well but it did take a lot out of us. That being said I'm not dropping all my development / support. I will still release tiny patches for Build VI to fix any tiny bugs you guys may encounter.
I however will not be making another Build anytime soon. Or a v5 to that matter.
If anyone wants to start working on v5 and wants to work with me part-time then I can and will definitely do that. I just don't have time to take things on full-force on my own or be the main developer.
Thanks for making my developing experience such a stunning epoch in my life!
Build VI should be out tomorrow. I'm still waiting on word from my testers on some things, but I AM working on the ROM as I type right now.

- No Major Issues Exist
1. Place ROM zip file in your SD card 2. Boot into recovery 3. Create a backup 4. Factory reset device (Wipe Data and Cache) and wipe Dalvik Cache 5. Install zip from SD card
[Q] Dev-Host is not loading for me! Help! What did I do wrong?! A. Relax. You didn't do anything wrong. First of all check what browser you're using; if you're using Internet Explorer, go ahead and close it and delete system32 (J/K). --1. Make sure that your browser is up to date. If the issue still exists, make sure that your anti-virus software or firewall is not blocking dev-host. Sometimes our malware guardians overeat to shortened URLs and tend to freak out over some like "d-h.st". If you're still experiencing issues, contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and double check that they haven't blocked dev-host from you. [Q] How do I install this? A. There's steps in the first post above, but if you insist on me reiterating: First download it and put it on your phone. Then reboot into the recovery. Lastly, wipe Data, Cache, and Dalvik Cache then Install the ZIP file. [Q] Why am I getting an Install Error? A. Well I'm not sure actually. It's something you're experiencing on your end. To keep you from having to redownload the ROM again, check to see if your Recovery is up to date first. I recommend the latest version of TWRP. If you're still having issues then redownload the ROM as your download may have gotten mistakenly corrupted as data packets were being transferred from dev-host to your computer or from your computer to your phone. [Q] Why am I bootlooping? A. Well I'm not sure actually. It's something you're experiencing on your end. To begin with however, pull out your battery then put it back in your phone. It should be off now. NOW hold down Power, Volume UP, and Home Key all at the same time so that your phone reboots into the recovery. Now wipe data, and cache and flash the ROM again. If the issue still persists, check to make sure that your recovery is up to date and or that you have a copy of the ROM that did not corrupt at all when downloading. [Q] Why is it taking so long for my device to turn back on? A. Well usually the first boot on any ROM takes awhile as the phone is preparing the system as it would as if the phone was new. Give the phone about 5 minutes to perform the initial boot. If it still gets stuck, then you may be bootlooping. [Q] Why won't the keyboard pop up?! A. Egh. I hate this. It's not really a bug or an issue it's just that the stupid MIUI Tutorial text at the notification bar prevents it from popping up the first few times. Try and get the tutorial text to go away and then re-hit the text field that you wanted to type in again. [Q] Why is the launcher a bit laggy after booting up? A. It is still preparing all of your apps and possible actions you may do (e.g. swipe left) [Q] Why does the Recorder App give me an error? A. Because you need to go into it's settings and change the file record type to 3gpp to AMR [Q] Why doesn't the NavBar work in the JB Control Panel? A. Because I removed it's functionality as it caused major issues. [Q] Why isn't MI Camera included in this? A. It's not included in almost any MIUI JellyBean ROM because it's proprietary to the MI-Phones. [Q] Why aren't my Voicemails playing or loading? A. They take a few minutes to initially load off of Verizon's Servers and Download [Q] Why are there multiple weather widgets? A. One (maybe two) are for the Chinese and International Weather services and then one is for the app that is for USA Weather [Q] How do I get the USA Weather Widget to load? A. Open up the app first and add your city [Q] Why does the USA Weather App has displaced sides? A. Because it wasn't made for HD Screens. And no I won't and can't fix it. [Q] Why does the Download Manager keep yelling at me whenever I try to download things? A. Because Xiaomi was stupid and made a stupid prompt that is broken on a ton of variants of MIUI. To fix it (semi), open the app called Downloads (under Tools folder), then tap menu, then settings, then change the File Size Limit from 1M to 10M and then slide the "data download prompt" slider off. [Q] Why doesn't my NFC work? A. It should. If it doesn't then you must have been living under a rock for the past half a year because all it takes to fix it was to be on TouchWiz Jellybean and toggle it. [Q] When will this get another Build update? A. Never from me anytime soon. v4 has hit it's EOL officially from Xiaomi and I don't have time to start building v5 from scratch [Q] We really want you to keep updating this though?! A. Motivate me with cash lol x)
