Presenting MIUIv4 Jellybean (4.1.2) 3.2.8 for the new bootloader :D (unofficial)

Read this post entirely before using the ROM or asking any questions!

  • Firstly, I want to thank Ricardo for all his work on CM for our phone. Since this ROM uses CM10 as base, it would not be possible without RC's work.
  • This ROM has been ported to the O2x from various other devices having official MIUI support (such as the Nexus S, Atrix etc.) and the MIUI team deserves credit for all of that.
  • This would not be possible without pengus77 and the other devs who brought CM10 to the new bootloader. His thread is here

Details of the ROM:

  • For use with NEW unlocked ICS bootloader only, tested with CWM recovery 6.0.1.5
  • Multilanguage support (refer post #2)
  • Does not come with gapps, you need to flash it separately
Screenshots:
(Theme applied below is 'Dark knight HD' by remcis, so thanks to him)
Screenshots attached below the post again in case you cannot see these

Tips on using the ROM:

To charge normally (fast), turn off phone, plug charger, wait for a minute (till the charging animation goes off and phone is off again) and turn on phone. Now it will charge fast. This is the standard procedure for all JB ROMs. If you dont follow this, charging will be slow.

You need to turn auto-brightness off if the LED notification lights stay on even with screen is off!

Camera:

If you are not satisfied with the quality and performance of the stock camera app, use the bundled 'ICS Camera', or an app like 'Camera360 Ultimate' (free app from the play store). It will produce better quality images.
If you get a clicking sound when starting and closing camera, dont worry, read this

Superuser:
Before installing anything, first activate root permission from 'LBE Guard' app in 'Security Center' folder. Select 'manage root permission' and enable it.
This only needs to be done once, and all superuser prompts will come as usual when you install/use root apps.
If you installed or tried to use any root apps before doing this, and your app no longer gets root access, reinstall that app. Also includes a custom hosts file, which you have the option to remove if you want to see ads.

Battery:
To see percentage battery indicator on the status bar, go to settings->battery and change the battery indicator style

Performance:
To make the UI transitions faster, you can use the good old standard tip:
Go to settings->developer options
Set 'window animation scale', 'transition animation scale' and 'animator duration scale' all to "0.5x". UI animations will seem twice as fast after doing this.
If the ROM becomes slow over time, do a reboot.
And try not to do a lot of stuff in the first few seconds when SD card scanning is going on, sync is going on or when apps are updating in the background. Its not right to complain of "this/that doesnt work" or lag when you do that ;)
Kowalski kernel included in the ROM from version 3.1.11

Some cool tips and tricks to improve your MIUI experience(taken from the official site):

Tips, tricks and shortcuts


Download links:

Download link
Gapps download link

Instructions:

Same instructions as pengus77's instructions here. If you are new, and still on old GB bootloader and not sure where to start, refer to this
Dont forget to flash the 4.1.2 gapps ;)

Standard disclaimer:
I am not responsible if anything goes wrong with your phone.

If someone has posted a bug and you have the same bug, just thank their post or wait. No need to flood with the same bug reports.
Small problems such as some app related problems can be dealt with at a later stage.

Known issues:
Stock clock widget on default theme may not work sometimes. Works with any other theme (you can change only widget's theme too, without changing full theme)

Unable to change ringtone? Use this fix

Credits:

  • RC and the rest of the CM team for all their work
  • MIUI team (especially the Nexus S team and Photon team headed by Th3bill)
  • wkpark for cracking the new bootloader and making it possible to use custom ROMs with it
  • Pengus77 and the other devs who brought CM10 to the new bootloader. Also, thanks to him for his Kowalski kernel
  • zeppelinrox for his v6 supercharger and carburano for supercharger values
  • Wajk and bihariel for their previous MIUI ROMs which i used, and which inspired me to make this ROM
  • All the other devs for inspiration (PM me if i missed anyone :) )

If you post any bug due to not following the above instructions or tips, I may not answer ;)
Regards and thanks.

ADDONS:

1) Recommended kernel
Link

2) V6 Supercharger by zeppelinrox and other performance tweaks for MIUIv4 2.10.26 only (Experimental addon!)
zoom...zoom...
Contains:

  • V6 supercharger by zeppelinrox. It is entirely his work, and here is the link to his thread
    Contains 100% supercharged version (with supercharged services.jar and init script) already configured, and baked into the ROM
Done!
Download link
Enjoy your supercharged phone and dont forget to thank the devs who made this possible :)

3) MIUI control panel for 2.10.26 (including app drawer addon)

This is andy thomson's "extended settings" or control panel to allow further customization. Has various settings such as clock location change,carrier options, overscroll options, changing color of anything on the status bar, app drawer etc.

Check the attached screenshot where the clock position has been set to centre, and carrier, clock and battery indicator colors have been changed (i know its not a good color combo, but this is just for demo :p) using this.

How to enable app drawer from MIUI control app (instructions by gh.rohit)
Go to MIUI Control Panel:

1. Go to "App drawer Options"
2. Select your pull down Location preference
3. Click "Auto Start" to "On"
4. Enable it, press back key button ( Do not close app from task killer )
5. Go to any screen and click ~just below~ (aprox 1mm) the statusbar at your chosen location and hold until a new pulldown appears

Instructions:

Flash in recovery, wipe cache and dalvik cache and reboot
Due to low RAM, the jb control panel/app drawer process may get killed off, thus the app drawer may disappear. To prevent this, you can make the app bulletproof using the V6 supercharger (after you installed it from the previous post) :)

Download link
Link to andy thomson's thread is here.


4) DPI changer by tonyp

Also very useful for people who have used PA for a long time, and used to smaller dpi.
(It is not per-app based like in PA, but still very good)
Link to tonyp's post where you can download this:
Link
All credit to him, I just tested it with this ROM and it works fine. You can set grid size as 4x5 in launcher settings.

To make the UI transitions faster, you can use the good old standard tip:
Go to settings->developer options
Set 'window animation scale', 'transition animation scale' and 'animator duration scale' all to "0.5x". UI animations will seem twice as fast after doing this

Thanks everyone :)
The ROM base is a self compiled build from source on 24th with fixes by pengus77 to make it boot in the new boot loader. The multi language pack will be released today, and the kernel with ram hack may follow later.
Pdroid will also be included then later.
So enjoy and dont forget to thank Pengus for making this possible :)

What language that include in multi-language version perhaps it not include the language that someone need so they don't need to download it.
