Instructions.png

  • Please make a full wipe if coming from other roms sense/miui.
  • ShootMe.apk is extracted onto sdcard root upon flashing, install it manually using file manager.(Install if you need screenshot funtionality)
  • Recommended settings for superuser: Automatic response:Allow ; Notifications: Disabled (marginally smoother)

NOTE: If you are facing random reboots.. it's not an issue with the rom but rather with the lockscreen style you are using.. Currently i can confirm that MIUI v4 lockscreen and Black Android lockscreens give random reboots...

I'm not a developer. If you have any requests to make then I shall read up on it and try to get it done(In short: I can't promise anything).

So is this some kind of mod of miui? What's that interface that you can see in the second screenshot? This looks really interesting.

Played with it for a few hours. I like it. Love the lockscreen and Icons. I think I'll keep it until ICS gets more stable. Or at least until something else catches my eye :p

This rom looks great. But I was wondering if there was an easy way to add back in the voice dialer?

Thanks for sharing your hard work!

Has anyone else noticed long press home not working? It does vibrate normally but recent apps doesn't show up.

Also, I've been having a ringtone issue with all MIUI roms lately. If I set a custom ringtone from music app, it doesn't play when I receive a call. I've tried to copy the mp3 file to /system, and selecting it from the settings. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. However if I set a ringtone that comes with the rom, it works flawlessly. Does anybody else have this or some idea on how to fix it?

EDIT: other than that, great rom. I think I'll keep this.

    How long does it take usually to upload your 1.7? Sorry this is my first install of this rom. I went thru and read every post and it sounds very very promising :)

    V1.7 has been uploaded with additional mirror on mediafire

    Thank you all for the tremendous support...

    Achieved this with a stock sense gingerbread wwe rom extracted from ruu.
    I removed most bloat and widgets although i did leave behind some that i liked about sense. Absolutely no framework mods on this.
    Rooted of course. Anyone interested?

    PS: Wont be releasing for another week or so. Exams :(
