    - MultiLing O keyboard Hebrew dictionary
    - Whatsapp fixed for MIUI (see 2nd OP)

    - Fastcharge
    - Titanium Backup.

  • Beastmode's Proton ICS kernel (build 2) - taken from here.
    This kernel has TWRP 2.4, completely fixed capacitive buttons light, Fast Charge app support and more.
  • Enhanced build.prop & init.d tweaks with battery & performance tweaks - taken from here, here (Pimp My ROM) and here (Adrenaline Injector) - Thanks to omair2005, Androguide.fr and DSexton702. Gracia!
    You can choose not to install the tweaks through the installer.
  • Auto-brightness fix by Jeffsf. Thanks.

  • Comes with (a translated) NoTelURL app to prevent USSD/MMI exploit. Thanks to the developer Joerg Voss.



Why MIUI ?

It's my favorite ROM. I have checked almost every ROM in this forum and I always come back to this one.
It's incredibly customizable (themes for every possible feature), runs smooth as hell, as stable as can be and all in English/Hebrew.

  • Jelly bean like task manager built-in : Long press home button brings you a visual button to kill all apps and a task manager.
  • Jelly bean like full screen toggles - actually Google copied it from MIUI short press to activate/deactivate, long press to get to the specific settings.
  • Great lock screen with 4 quick options, music player controls, album preview image and digital music bars.
  • HiFi music player with automatic album image and lyrics download and presentation, built in equalizer and tilt to forward.
  • Screenshot functionality.
  • Excellent system apps - browser, file explorer, music player, sound recorder, backup utility, data usage monitor, app autostart, firewall, anti virus - the best you've seen.
  • Immediate hot boot.
  • Cool graphics and more.
  • About 160-200MB free RAM (!)...
  • Easy to use touch screen TWRP recovery.

FYI

1. SIM card contacts are not available - you have to sync it with Google before flashing the ROM, to be able to have them.
Don't forget that!
I also used the VCF exported file from Samsung contacts.
2. This is an MTD ROM, so if you don't follow instructions carefully you can and will damage and void your phone, IMEI number and functionality.
Back up and save your EFS according to instructions below, before flashing -> or deal with the consequences!
3. To set up NoTelURL to always get activated when you launch suspicious dialer codes - go HERE with your phone (it's a USSD/MMI code test site)
and choose "NoTelURL" as default app for this operation.
Regular phone numbers links will be allowed to call upon confirmation.

Known issues

1. TV-Out, Call recording and 'WiFi calling' are not working.
2. If you suffer from same color background and text in messages, it's because you applied a GB theme over ICS.
I recommend applying "Black android V4.1" (basically all V4 marked themes are for MIUI ICS.
I use it for all except for 'locking method' (I prefer MIUI's original) and 'others' & 'notification bar' where I applied SGS3 theme (to get SGS3 icons in system settings and non transparent notification bar).
They are attached in post #4 and defined in MIUI themes app.
3. To be able to use your own mp3s for notifications, alarms and ringtones - you need to put them in system/media/audio/... {use root explorer or similar app, fix permissions afterwards}.
4. There's a Whatsapp silent notification sound bug on MIUI.
I modified Whatsapp installation to utilize the default system notification sound and it works.
It is available here and comes with the ROM.

Installation instructions :

Upgraders from previous versions :

1. Go to recovery.
2. Wipe Cache partition.
3. Wipe Dalvik cache.
4. Flash ROM.
5. Reboot system.
6. Use MIUI toolbox to calibrate battery. follow instructions.


New comers (for GB BML ROM, If you're on CM9/AOKP go straight to step 7) :


1. Backup everything :
a) Synchronize all your SIM contacts to Google. They will not appear in an MTD ROM such as this.
b) Back up all your user apps in Titanium backup.
c) Make a nandroid backup of your ROM through CWM recovery.

2. Download the following :

Team Acid files
efs-backup
efs-restore

HebMIUI V8.4 ROM

Google Apps

SGSIII & Black android V4.1 themes (extract to SDCard\MIUI\themes)

3. Put efs-backup on your SD card and flash it through CWM recovery. It will create 2 EFS backup files.

4. Copy SD Card including the EFS backup files to your PC/Mac.

5. Put HebMIUI zip on your SD Card.
Make sure you have the EFS created backup files from section 3 on your SD card root.

6. Go to Recovery (use hardware buttons - Vol+ & Volume- & PWR. once splash shows, leave the PWR while keeping the volume buttons pushed).
Make sure it's at least CWM5, otherwise flash a newer kernel) and return to recovery.

a) Wipe Cache / Partition.
b) Advanced - Wipe Dalvik cache.
c) Wipe Data / Factory Reset.
d) Mounts and storage - perform Format System.
e) Perform mount /system.
f) Wipe Data / Factory Reset.

7. Install from Zip file - choose the HebMIUI ROM zip.
Follow aroma instructions. If you were on GB - you will be rebooted after BML-->MTD transition and need to repeat installation.

8. Flash Google Apps.
9. Reboot system.
10. Wait for 10 minutes.


That's it! Enjoy!
You can set the themes I put here (in MIUI themes app) if you want to.


Notes :

1. MultiLing O Keyboard has the lowest memory print comparing to any other keyborad supporting slide typing. That's why I included it.
2. Rocket Dialer was added for better Hebrew dialer and contacts support that will last through all MIUI themes.
3. My experience shows that MIUI music player doesn't enjoy audio MODs.
It has its own EQ. If you still want to use music mods - push Apollo.apk from CM9/Beastmode's miui and use it instead of MIUI music player. Not sure it's worth it.
It does work great with VoodooSound free app, which is also crucial if you want to record a live shows with loud audio.
4. Personally I prefer Nova launcher over MiuiLauncher. Also included in installation.

5. If you want to go back to Samsung (BML) ROM (such as HebrewValhalla or HebrewBarebone), go here - HebrewBarebone and follow instructions.

6. How do I know on which HebMIUI version I am? Go to settings --> about phone --> Build.
You will see: MIUI2.8.10 HebMIUI XX_TW or MIUI2.8.10 HebMIUI XX_NT, where XX represents the version number and TW=Tweaked, NT=Not Tweaked.

Hi m4127440

Personally I think first S series of Samsung has crappy TV-out quality.
After getting used to crispy HD movies, using this is not much of an option for me.
As you said, it's not part of the MIUI ROM functionalities anyway, so...
