MIUI 7.2 for HTC One M8
Based on Stock Google Play Edition ROM for M8 and MIUI 7 Patchrom for KitKat
For Verizon/Sprint users, please read "How to install" carefully before you flash!
Please take note that although this ROM is based on GPE, you will get a MIUI experience instead of an AOSP one. I do get some original features like Motion Launch and Dual-camera features to be kept.
This ROM is approved by MIUI officials and hosted by Xiaomi Official Server. Although it is not directly maintained by Xiaomi, you can still treat this as some official ROM.
Please convert to Sense if you have a GPE M8 or converted to a GPE M8.
I recommend the latest Lollipop firmware to get the best of this ROM.
For those of you feeling uncomfortable with the changed menu button function, go to Settings---Additional settings--- Buttons.
Of course, all amazing MIUI features.
HTC Photo Edit.
Rooted (Go to Security --- Permissions --- Root Access to enable and manage. You have to do this every time you install a new app requiring root access.)
New screenshots needed...
How to install
Verizon/Sprint users: Please download this boot.img (for 6.2.26 and later versions) or this boot.img (for 5.6.19 through 6.2.25) and replace the boot.img in the ROM zip file before you flash.
If your LTE is not working, try *#*#4636#*#* or add your LTE APN in settings.
S-off or Unlocked (If S-on, you won't be able to modify system files unless you flash a custom kernel.)
Use Lollipop firmware (Not required but highly recommended) Some reported Marshmallow firmware works fine.
PhilZ Touch Recovery is required (TWRP is not working).
Wipe Data/Cache (You need this even if coming from MIUI 6).
Flash the zip file downloaded.
Don't wipe anything after you flash the ROM.
Download GApps_pico.zip (without Contacts Sync) or GApps.zip (with Contacts Sync) and flash if you need.
Don't report bugs if you fail to follow the exact steps.

[6.5.19] Routine update.
[6.4.28] Routine update. The graphics of the Security Center app are getting weird... but won't affect its functionality... A lot of new features have come from Xiaomi in the past month. You may check their website for complete changelogs. FYI: MIUI 8 is coming to Xiaomi devices pretty soon but I am not sure of Patchrom... My best guess would be the new Patchrom based on Android L will come with MIUI 8 codes.

[6.4.7] Routine update.
[6.3.31] Fixed theme store FC, Settings FC. Fixed default browser setup.

1. SIM contact is not working.
2. You tell me.
1. Custom kernels?
(International variant M8 only) ElementalX for Kitkat MIUI 7.1. Thanks to @skudo101
2. Modifications to the ROM?
Please contact me first before you do ANY modifications to the ROM. I will never say no if you ask.
Nope. I don't think you can boot your device with ART.
4. Why based on GPE? Not CM? Not Sense?
Bugs that cannot be resolved since CM itself is still buggy...
A Sense-based MIUI would require a lot of time and effort to build, and bugs are hard to resolve.
5. Why still KitKat? I want Lollipop/Marshmallow.

I would like to thank:

MIUI Co-developers for all the help
All users and testers
Please consider donating if you like this ROM. I do need a new M8 device since the one I bought in China is blacklisted in the US (bite me...) and I cannot test calling/texting/etc with this device.
Goldcougar - $100 (And we have a working unit to test MIUI 8!)
