@magikstar
Maybe soon I will add more Languages. Firstly I wanna change one thing in this rom.
@aryank
Try Faka 3.0.72 kernel it's really good.
@Kéno40
I added to my roms auto wipe dalvik-cache and cache after week of using - so no lag after long term of using.

Thanks. I will try but the SGS experience I had on this kind of ROm was that the system always slowed down, no matters if wiping of not....

I have flashed this Rom, but I didn't get an option to select kernel or any swaps.
It only gave an option for slim MIUI or full MIUI.
May be I should have selected slim right???

Also, I'm unable to change my themes, each time it asked me to create xiaomi account.
But still after creating an account, I wasn't able to change my theme, it said, sorry service is not available.
So even for applying theme do we need to create an account?
And ya, as you said, this Rom is smooth, but lags in multi tasking.
Browser, calls and msgs takes time to load up.
So till now this is what I have experienced.
Hope you'll take the development of this Rom a bit furture.
Thanks a lot for sharing your lovely creation.

If you wanna Customize your installation you should chose Customize Installation.

Your problem with themes is MIUI idea. Each time you wanna chose new theme you must active your internet connection - this is stupid think.

Miui v4 is heavy, so maybe some apps needs some time to load. I can lock some apps in memory to fast access but then you will get less ram to other apps.

Thanks a lot.
I guess your MIUI GB is my choice. ;)
Faster, smoother & multitaskable. Overall GREAT...
It has most of the features of v4 too.
So reverting back to my MIUI GB nandroid.
Thanks for your help and support.

The only problem I've found is whenever the carrier shows up (I'm on AT&T), it shows "AT;ampT." I have a bad case of ocd. xD Other than that, yet another fantastic ROM.

Go to Control panel and change Carrier name. I can't fix this, because I can't recompile framework-miui-res.apk - really strange :rolleyes:

Today I release version 1.2.1, this is changelog:
- locked Dialer, Contacts and Messages apps in memory - to fast access,
- fixed small lags after screen unlock.

Hi, i flashed this ROM to give feedback for the dev :)
Thanks for this nice MIUI ROM for this device, however i merely can test what works without SIM card
So...what i saw so far, it works quite smooth for the given RAM
No glitches so far
One reboot after i flashed it before i could configure it, but thats all i had so far
Besides that...i installed it with the htc keyboard and there i could not disable the haptic feedback, so i could disable it in the settings but when i got back it was enabled again
So far thanks again for the hard work, keep it up :D

ok, version 1.2.1 is up.

BTW

I compiled kernel from @qriozum 3.0.72 source, and I relocate ram from GPU to userspace and get +31MB of ram (standard 361MB - new kernel 392MB). Recording video in HD will not work, but 800x480 recording is fine, 3D performance is still good. I will share with this kernel soon. :D

yes, +31MB of ram for 720p recording ;)

What about graphics performance? Any glitches, or video playback or gaming performance?
Wont this hinder gpu performance. I mean, gpu handles them, so without gpu memory how is the performance.
Have you tried the kernel?

On Antutu, standard 3d score is about ~1800 with new kernel ~1750 (one test) sow no changes really. I tested Gta Vice city, and really no see diferrence, maybe less stutter because more ram for userspace. Playback videos on 720p works great.

Only disadvantage for now is no recording videos on 720p.

    coolOs you're awesome thanks. which kernel do you recommend for battery life?

    I would add for having a good balance Smoothness / battery.

    Does this one will remain smooth after some weeks? that's the question I think!
