Moderator Announcement: Thread closed on request of OP @TipzTeam

As you all know MIUI is a highly customizable ROM with an eye pleasing UI. I am here very happy to present for you the new MIUI 7 Global and China Beta/Developer ROM for your Phab Plus. I tried to make it as stable as I can but even then some bugs may have crept in. Since it is itself a beta ROM, it may have such bugs which I cannot solve.

thank you for bringing new life into the Phab Plus!
i have tried the 5thApr build, so far besides the known wifi problem I am not sure if this is a valid problem.
I tried to share internet connection using BT from my other phones. It connected fine and was able to open web pages. However when i try to login to my google account in the settings, it says Google server could not be located. Is this the BT fix you are talking about in the 6thApr build?

No, Google Services seems to be broken for now. I made WiFi working in the latest build. Also, I invite you to join my telegram group so we can easily communicate and maybe even fix a few issues.

I have the exact same device.
I have tried the latest build with weak wifi, so far it seems to connect fine. I am using 5GHz wifi and so far no problem. Could you be more specific as what do you mean by weak wifi? Lose connection easily or connection is fine but transfer speed is slow or etc.

i have just found another bug , the screen rotation function is not working as intended. most of the apps cannot rotate, except for the builtin MIUI web browser, however after it goes into landscape mode the screen kind of freezes and you have to force close it.

wifi is working fine

Not rotating is because the sensors aren't working. If you want to watch YouTube, sideload the latest play services and YouTube, don't login and it will work.
