The only thing is, I don't know why I would switch from my current rom, MIUI 2.11.14, for this. It just seems like MIUI with less of the options that you get with MIUI to me. There are no real MIUI themes here, you can't fully customize your themes (ie changing your lockscreen, icons, navbar, etc, to all be from different themes), you don't have MIUI Toolbox or ControlPanelSuite options, I just don't know. I'm not trying to be offensive or anything, just wondering how this would be better than regular MIUI.

Because this ROM is based on CM. We like MiUi as well and we love CM. What we are trying to do is bring the awesomeness of MiUi themes to CM.

i flashed this rom and got some errors, android has stopped working and then it said avatar has crashed. i didn't get a setup screen also, was i supposed to?
the way i flashed was: wipe factory/reset, wiped cache, wipe dalvik, wiped system, then flashed rom and flash the latest gapps 12122012 then wiped cache and dalvik again then rebooted. this is how i flash all the roms i use and haven't had a problem except this time. did i do something wrong in the flashing on this one?

You flashed the wrong gapps. The one you flashed is for 4.2.1 you need the ones for 4.1.2 dated 10/11/12 I believe

It wasn' ignorance, that's the thing. I was honestly curious as to why someone would prefer this ROM. I appreciate the actual Dev's response to my questions because it made sense and wasn't rude, unlike your comment. Telling me that I don't need to know why is ignorance. I'm allowed to ask questions if I have them, that's what it's all about, is it not? No need to apologize for my 'ignorance' when you're doing the exact same thing.

If u use miui then hopefully uve tried a cm10 ROM. Any cm ROM will fly compared to a miui ROM. Miui was never meant to be on our phones, every ROM uve used is a port. Cyanogen himself has cooked us some slick ROMs for this phone. But, honestly, to see Ur comment first thing after a dev spent so much time making us a ROM and a xhangelog and all that disappoints us all. Next time, think about saying thanks, I'll flash and let u know my findings. The rest of us understand cm10 is fast and know how this ROM could be great.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the phone and I still cannot access my internal/external storage when connected to my computer. Anyone else get this?

    The only thing is, I don't know why I would switch from my current rom, MIUI 2.11.14, for this. It just seems like MIUI with less of the options that you get with MIUI to me. There are no real MIUI themes here, you can't fully customize your themes (ie changing your lockscreen, icons, navbar, etc, to all be from different themes), you don't have MIUI Toolbox or ControlPanelSuite options, I just don't know. I'm not trying to be offensive or anything, just wondering how this would be better than regular MIUI.

    You don't need to know why....if its not for you just move around.....thank you devs for another option to make our phones slick....and sorry for other peoples ignorance

    The Avatar Team is proud to present the first beta release of weebo app. It is a Tasker like application which can automate tasks for your phone.

    The application comes with pre-defined set of 20 common rules but you can add your own rules in sdcard (/mnt/sdcard/weebo) and it will be automatically picked up by the application. To activate a rule, click on the corresponding rule (rule will get highlighted)

    The rules are simple XML files and you can find more info here.

    Download link - Here (Push the apk as system app)

    Example:

    <rules>
    <rule name=”Office enter settings” desc=”When you enter office, Switch on my WiFi”>
    <conditions>
    <wifi state=”off”/>
    <location state=”enter” name=”work” />
    </conditions>
    <actions>
    <wifi state=”on”/>
    </actions>
    </rule>

    There is lot of work going on to make the app better and your feedback will help us a lot.
