MIUI Fixes, Patches and FAQs

Important Links:

LATEST VERSION OF MIUI RIGHT NOW: v10.4

Quote:

WHO IS THE DEVELOPER?
Since gm007 (JP), left our device, like many other developers have, Frankenstain has taken over the development of MIUI. JP will be available for help, and other people are constantly helping out. Now there will be a MIUI release EVERY FRIDAY. I hope this clears any doubts you had.

Recent problems and if they've been tackled yet? (Updated for v10.2):
AUDIO STUTTER --- Low frequencies!
Video Recording has been fixed? --- CHECKED --- Still persists.
MIC with other apps fixed? --- Fixed as of 10.3

How stable is it? What works? What doesn't work?

WORKING FINE
  1. WIFI (Some drops, but usable)
  2. 2G/3G Mobile Networks
  3. Sensors
  4. GPS
  5. BLN
  6. Bluetooth
  7. USB Tethering
  8. Video/Audio
  9. Calls
  10. Video Recording (Use Illusion from Android Market)
  11. SMS
  12. Mic with all apps.
  13. Internal and External SD Cards
  14. Full MIUI Interface and Apps
  15. Hotspot (With Wifi-tether from Market)
  16. Radio (Using a third-party radio from Market, see FAQ)

What's BUGGY?
(see patches & fixes for a possible solution!)

--- Battery drain is being a problem.
--- Backlight/Blacklight, can be fixed.


What does not work AT ALL right now with NO fixes yet?

--Nothing! Thanks to devs and the community .

PATCHES // QUICK FIXES


BATTERY FIX (v10.2 only)

As requested to be added by Frankenstein!

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=601

VIBRATION:

Not necessary to apply with newer MIUI releases. Please do not flash unless you know what you're doing.


http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2049

Flash it using CWM Recovery.

AUDIO STUTTER REDUCTION, AUDIO QUALITY IMPROVEMENT:

Not necessary to apply with newer MIUI releases. Please do not flash unless you know what you're doing.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1328

Flash it using CWM Recovery.

Some report using Instinctiv player from Market to remove stutter. Some report PowerAMP works as well.

RINGTONE SELECTION DOESN'T WORK! IT GIVES ME DEFAULT RINGTONE?

Use THEME MANAGER or MUSIC to select your ringtone, and it will work.

BACKLIGHT/BLACKLIGHT ISSUE:

CHECK THE DEVELOPMENT OP and SEARCH for updates. This might not be completely up-to-date! ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK.

Backlight/Blacklight issue is an annoying issue, but it may be fixed using an app:

Click here to get it

And see HERE for a fix by gm007 about the app...

See here for usage for the Blacklight v2 app

VIDEO RECORDING:

Use illusion video recorder from Market. It works.

FAQs


[Q] Where can I learn and find out more about MIUI, and get tips?

Here.

[Q] What is the best Governer to use? What is the best I/O Scheduler to use?

See UC Kernel thread for a link to very useful information about these topics. Keep in mind that 1.3GHz or so makes the ROM unstable for some people, so don't overdo anything.

Newer version releases have kernel changes, experimentation for stability!

Market does not allow download? Market does not allow me to download apps with high size?

Check HERE.

[Q] What Kernel do I use? What's the procedure for flashing?

RECOMMENDED KERNEL FOR USE (for this build):
'vurrutKER_v3_cm_fixIO_initd' [will be overwritten anyway]

1.3GHz OC, or high overclocks, trigger problems for some users. Try not to go overboard with this ROM...

Your kernel WILL be overwritten. Use the flash procedure as directed in the OP.

Fresh KPE then KPU, or KPQ.. // Universal CF-Root // ANY KERNEL // Wipe dalvik // REBOOT // MIUI flash // Wipe dalvik, battery etc.

[Q] What are addons, where can I find them?

Addons are optional (usually!) things you would want to flash over to your current MIUI rom to customize it at your will. All the current available add-ons are CWM flashable, and you can find them in Frank's thread (see important links above).

[Q] How do I make Radio work?

MIGHT NOT WORK. PLEASE CHECK.

1- Download spirit fm free from the market
2- plug in the headphones
3- run spirit fm free and open settings
4- set regional regional Band to World
5- choose audio from the settings then methods
6- choose GalaxyS Danger

Thanks to ahmadalsaady

[Q] I'm having Battery Drain, why?

Use the Spare Parts app to see your usage stats!

This is a port and battery drain is common as it's not perfect yet. Please don't complain about battery drain. If you're facing very bad drain, try taking some common steps, like disabling WIFI when not in use, etc.

Apart from that, try these tips from gm007 (Dev):
-use another launcher.
-disable auto rotate.
-use 2g.
-In phone settings turn off enforce proximity sensor.
-turn off background data.
-manually kill the apps by the long pressing the home button.

Use a task killer. Experiment and research in dev and Q/A threads.


[Q] I get a Force Close in 'Sound Settings'.

This might be due to Themes sometimes not supporting! If your force close is "android.process.media" then see the specific question about that below.

My battery stats show 0% and 0s -- Battery Stats are not being recorded?

Turn on "Monitor Battery Usage" in Battery Settings!

[Q] Does Extended MIUI work?

Yes! Get it here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1203

[Q] I have a Force Close in an app I'm trying to run!

Try reinstalling. Use Titanium Backup to save any data first, then restore it. This works for 95% of apps that started FCing for me.

[Q] I have a force close for android.process.acore after flashing! Help!

Navigate to Settings - Programs - Manage Applications - All.

CLEAR DATA for 'Contacts and Dialer' and 'Contacts Storage'.

Reboot phone. This should fix your problem.

[Q]I have to swap ext/int SD Cards. The Gingerbread Swap won't work, what is wrong?

There is a MIUI specific version for the swap! Get it from Important Links at the top of this post.

[Q] I have a force close for andriod.process.media on flashing, opening market or an app!

Navigate to Settings - Programs - Manage Applications - All.

Clear data for Download Manager and Media Storage.

Reboot phone. This should fix your problem.

[Q] I'm having a Bootloop!

You did something wrong, try starting fresh and reflash. See procedure as directed in the OP (dev thread).

[Q] How do I know if my device has the Backlight/Blacklight issue?

Here's a video showing the issue:
http://youtu.be/nr6B7r2mXmo

[Q] When will developer fix XYZ issue? When will XYZ be released?

You're getting this stuff for free, you should be grateful for his hard work and be patient for the next release. The Dev is working hard on making this ROM perfect.

[Q] I have AUDIO STUTTER problem!

Use the Sound Patch to reduce stutter or another player from the market, to possibly fix! Please note, newer releases have lesser stutter. Using another player usually fixes the problem.

[Q] What is the latest changelog?

From OP:

V10.4

-MIUI Update 2.4.6
-Bluetooth headphones work
-Small changes in tweaks

Looking pretty neat.... Great work dude

My two cents...:-
  • Probably linking the bug report - if it's being used or tracked currently...
  • Force close in Sound settings? Ans: Due to themes not supporting.
  • Whether extended support works if yes where can i get it? - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1203
  • Something related to ppl complaining about battery drain..
  • Questions related to which Kernel to use - which one is partially buggy (like 1.3G overclocking triggers problems to few users) and which one would be suitable?
  • Which is the best governer settings for battery life / performance?

These are just my suggestions bro. Add whichever things u feel are appropriate.

Maybe you can link aroma installer too. Also state which kernels are compatible. Its an FAQ . Great work by the way!

PS. Its blacklight, not backlight issue if I'm not wrong(?)(correct me if I'm wrong)

Cheers

Regarding Audio Stutter. (For those who are having this problem).

You can either use PowerAmp (This is a paid app with a awful ui) or you can use Instinctiv player.

All the other "So Called Popular Audio Players" don't solve the problem.
