Hi everyone! We are currently in the middle of porting the MIUI ROM to our mdpi devices (g1, hero, magic).

We have successfully ported ALL of the pngs in all of the apks to be compatible with our devices. This was a huge undertaking and it was keeping a lot of devs from wanting to get involved. Now that this big "hinderance" is out of the way, I'm hoping some talented devs will be willing to get involved.

I have posted all the semi-ported apks (by semi-ported, I mean the images are all mdpi now) in a zip file that can be downloaded by any devs who are willing to help get the MIUI rom ported to our devices. If you'd like to download the MIUI mdpi apks, you can visit our thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=858935

I don't have any dev skills, so I can't help beyond what I've already done. It is officially now in the hands of the community to take the next necessary steps to a full MIUI port. I hope that our two groups (hero and cdma hero) can cooperate in making this happen!

That is my reason for posting here.

Hope we can get this thing working!

This is great news :D like you said, converting all the image files to MDPI was a turn off for many devs. Hopefully some of them can jump onto this and get a working ROM for our GSM/CDMA hero's :cool:

I think many are busy with the 2.3 AOSP at the moment :eek: Have the MIUI devs agreed to release their source files??

On the movies I found about MIUI, you can see it's extremely smooth and fast!

If this is ported to MDPI devices our Hero will be reborn :D

Hmm still a big task AFAIK. It would probably be easier to port all the MIUI apks and files and what not to CM.

Well.. don't the devs have to edit every single .xml-layout-file to get the images in the right spots now?

Yes unless you do what I said and merge the MIUI apks and the CM apks but there are probably still lot's of specially made apks where you have to do that :rolleyes:

Yeah, the more devs are working on it the easier and faster it will be ported for our Hero ^^

I totally agree but it seems to me like there's a lot of leg work to do so all we need is some instructions on what actually needs to be done. That way people who just want to help but are not actual devs may be able to contribute.
Are there any devs actually working on this port?

    MIUI devs support only hdpi devices.

    but ppl in this thread have pointed out that the graphics have already been modded for mdpi. Sooooo, why on earth aren't the miui devs letting us have the code and help us build it for our phones?
