3. Switch off your phone, and hold down search whilst plugging in the USB to enter fastboot mode. (Blue Power Light)
4. Open a command prompt/terminal and enter the following commands:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot boot recoveryPLAY.img
5. Format Data, Dalvik Cache and Factory Settings:
6. Install zip from SDCard, select MIUIPlayV2_b.zip.
7. Once that has completed, reboot your phone. (But keep connected to usb)
8. Once your phone has been installed you then need to open a terminal/command prompt (in the folder where you extracted the zip) and enter the following commands:
adb install softkeys.apk
9. Now unplug your phone, and slide across to the app Button Savior.
10. Then select "Kill/Start Button Savior Service". You should then see a little arrow at the side.
11. Press that little arrow.
12. There you have your hardware buttons for now. Press the x to hide them.

Congratulations on making it work!

It seemed like you wouldn't get too much support but devs finally stepped up and helped make it happen. Good luck on improving it and vanish all those "what doesn't work" lines.

Current Progress:

Now onto fixing the WiFi, torch and screenshot capture. I dont know what data is but I also have no data with CM7 FXP41 either, this could be releated because we are using the same kernel (edited a bit) and ramdisk.

Coming in next build:
WiFi
Torch
Screenshot Capture
Custom Bootscreen
UK Version of MIUI (Not the US one, the uk one is more like the real miui and the one you see on most phones.)
Xperia Wallpapers

Yeh, I know what data is and this would be like one of the only things left to fix (Most stuff is regarding kernel changes with the code provided.etc). But i also have no APN's or data in CM7 either, so....

I don't know but they are working on it over in the Ray thread. It is something to do with the fact that because we cant get the source code for MIUI, we have to sort of hack the precompiled camera libary to link it with the kernel we have compiled...

    When you stop asking when it's going to be updated, it will be updated. :D

    Yes,

    We have now figured out how to get WiFi + Data + Torch + Camera working, I just have to compile/sort it out .etc

    Currently having a few issues but it should be done for the weekend.
