UPDATE 4/10/11: Added v8 which is the most recent test build done by deeznotes (thanks!) for the fascinate, ported to mesmerize and showcase thanks to dfgas and myself (and thanks to all of the others from the original posts since we wouldn't be where we are without them!). Here is deeznotes' changelog for this build;

http://www.deeznotes.com/android/CHA...3.x-2.2-en.txt



Through a wonderful breakthrough by phidelt82 and a gutsy experiment from me, we discovered that the wonderful work done by Jamezelle and fascinate crew with the port of MIUI can and is now able to be used by us mesmerize users!

Biggest Thanks to jamezelle+crew, and also l3ttuc3 for a all-nighter full of hard work and learning, dfgas, phidelt82, dcow and any others I may have missed + everyone in the IRC chat because without you this stuff would not happen! - Also thanks to JT for the padding fix and for the awesome AOSP voodoo kernel that I've packaged in this rom and all the awesome work he does!

There are some things fascinate is still working on, and is the only reason we are calling this an ALPHA - hopefully the two teams can work together to correct these issues in the future! I myself am using this as a daily driver!

NOTE: FOR CHANGE LOGS AND OTHER INFO CHECK OUT THE ORIGINAL POST HERE

Known to be Working:
calls
mute for calls
usb mass storage (UMS)
data
wifi
sms
bluetooth (file transfer & Motorola S10-HD works)
audio
market and gapps
AOSP camera (b&w preview) (turn off autofocus!)
sdcard mount
browser
accelerometer
proximity sensor
autobrightness (ambient light sensor)
miui music and lockscreen music controls
GPS & Network Location
MIUI backup
MIUI File Explorer PC Sync (FTP)
Youtube HQ works for some vids, still a bit laggy
in call volume
softkey vibrate (haptic feedback)
voodoo conversion (no voodoo lady voice though)
Theme Manager (Download through this, do not use theme downloader it doesn't work)
maybe more stuff.....

Currently NOT Working:

Bluetooth
MMS
Video Camera
youtube HQ
Torch/Flashlight in notification bar
Possible other quirks
Theme Downloader (use theme manager as noted above, i'ts not included in v8)


Semi-Working;

Camera - Doesn't seem to take full 5 mp pictures but they are decent quality - preview is black and white.

Known Issues:

Icons are updated after a reboot. When flashing, reboot the phone to get the icons to update.

When receiving a call, the phone will ring but there is a delay waking the screen. Press the power button to get the screen to wake up instead of letting calls go to voicemail.



INSTRUCTION:

STANDARD NANDROID BACKUP PROCEDURE, ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT IF YOU NEED TO RESTORE TO A DIFFERENT ROM, YOU WILL NEED TO FLASH THE EC10 KERNEL YOU WERE ON PREVIOUS AS NANDROIDS DO NOT RESTORE THEM AND IT WILL NOT BOOT ON THE AOSP KERNEL.



Disabling lagfix is optional per JT
  • Place .zip on SD card. May want to export your contacts to SD card or have them on google, I haven't verified that a restore from TitaniumBackup would work
  • Boot into recovery and do a factory reset/wipe data. Also wipe cache partition.
  • Select "install zip from SD card", navigate to the MIUI zip you downloaded.
  • Install - you will see the script scroll and the neat MIUI ASCII ending done by the fascinate guys.
  • Reboot - It will take some time to load - then enjoy the goodness

DOWNLOAD:
MESMERIZE v7

MESMERIZE v8

SHOWCASE v8


I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS OR YOUR PHONE, YOU ARE AN ADULT, ACT ACCORDINGLY.

pull /system/etc/asound.conf from a working build. I guess jamezelle has not updated his build yet?

I pulled the link for tonight as I didn't have recovery set up correctly in the rom, if you downloaded you just need to use odin to flash recovery and you're all set. Will have a link tomorrow if not sooner!

Thanks dcow - Theme downloader was working before we did the last round of edits for sms and the market - theme manager works - we'll have to see how we broke it. Also I had no issues with USB mass storage either, haven't gotten to test yet on this build.

And the voodoo chick is not talking in this build, and I pulled v5 from fascinates MIUI which was their latest build that was posted.


Mesmerbilly - google MIUI - it's much more than a fast ROM and the look is customizeable through the ROM itself - what i posted is just the stock theme.

Also not working:
  • pandora
  • google listen
  • the silence/vibrate settings are weird, but that's not really broken per se

i suppose i should provide a little detail.
pandora thinks it works, but it doesn't make any noise.
google listen straight up doesnt work. it just always says there was an error.
also, like the other aosp build, when you put the speaker on max volume it's too loud and makes me worry the speaker is going to break. lol
