I'm new to this but here we go :) This is a port of the Desire HD Miui rom 1.7.15 with english patch. I'm using parts of superkids excellent Cyanogen rom to fix the hardware issues. It's a work in progress so don't get upset if things don't work.

So far from my testing these things work (your mileage may vary):
Camera (face camera not quite yet but main camera works nicely)
WIFI
GPS
Phone
Audio
Volume Keys
etc.

Not working:
Bluetooth
Sim contacts
Video playback
probably other stuff too

Installation instructions

Full wipe, install from recovery and then flash the excellent Unity V2 kernel from here. If overclocking is your thing, I use setcpu set to 245760 min, 1209600 max with smartass scaling.

The default kernel included won't enable WIFI so if you want it, flash the Unity kernel.

Try it out and see what you think. I'll try to look at fixing things as and when i get to them but bluetooth isn't going to be high on my priority list as I don't use it (but you're welcome to pull the rom apart and give it a whirl yourself!) I don't have a lot of time so if you want to try fixing things, please do as we'll all benefit :)

wifi can be worked if using MDJ V2 kernel:D

How about battery cost?

Can the phone sleep correctly?

Now all the MIUI roms have a battery drain because the phone sleeps incorrectly.:confused:

still wait'n for perfect MIUI rom...

Thanks for letting us know. I was concerned that you might try this one and be unhappy with it. On a more serious note, this kind of post does not help anyone! Did you even download this rom to try it or are you just informing us that you won't be happy until a 100% working Miui rom falls into your lap. We'd all love a perfectly working Miui rom but it won't happen overnight!

You're in a development forum, by it's very nature, you're not going to ever see many 100% working roms, hence the development in the forum name.

@belantara
you need to understand that the devs are doing this in their free time & are not asking for anything in return other than a little support
so if you have a negative comment why do you want to post it & discourage them??it isnt always easy finding the bugs & correcting them

Great

I find it great that there is a seperate thread for miui development now. Due to the fact that all the other miui roms are developed on extern sites.

I hope that more developers will start helping here.

I am not sure but why aren't working let's say miui-developers together to make a more stable, faster, and more complete rom. I meen we are a community here. Nobody has to fight against the others.
I've seen it for a long time in the HTC Hero forums, that developers try to beat each other instead of working together to make something great.

Like i can see here it's the same, yes sure it's difficult that someone works together with the chinese developers but it would be possilbe to work together with the guy from the english miui forum, who made a great version too?

After that it would be possilbe to ask some devs from other roms for help. i am sure no one will say oh no i fight this rom-war on my own. stop asking for help.

In fact the main idea of forums was the easy way to exchange information between persons from different countries, even with different languages. So they can work together and so they will be able to make better things. Like you can see it over at stackoverflow, someone has a question the other will help him.

why so much devs forget this fact?

--------------------


Oh and i am happy to see someone who tries his luck with cooking a rom ;)


--------------------

If i had more time and some idea of cooking roms i would help you, but i think with my java knowledge i can't help that much.

Keep up your work it's great.

If anyone wants a detailed process of how to go about porting one rom from another I'd be happy to post it in here so more people can get on board and experimenting. My android hacking experience isn't great but I'm learning as I go (I have many years of linux experience which helps immensely). superkids work on the cyanogenmod rom is the reason I was able to bring a somewhat working Miui rom to the forum so big slaps on the back to him :)

I'll keep nibbling away at the issues and see what I can do but if anyone else wants to get involved, I'd be overjoyed. The more the merrier :)


Also, I've been in touch with superkid and he's happy with elements of his cyanogenmod rom being used to make Miui work. I've also been in contact with fusingblackrose on the Miuiandroid forums and his rom was my first port of call when starting off on this port so it's all good :)

I'm on this rom since yesterday night, what I can say for now is that it's a lil' bit slower than the 7.1.8 from fengbao wich I used for about a week.
I did not test the GPS yet, but there is an improvement in compatibility since the last release : the softkeys are now backlighted correctly.

I think all the issues we have are only about drivers, I am totally new at Android (only since AlpharevX release for Desire S) but as I'm intereested on it, I already know a lot about it, made tweaks and tested many roms, learned about the way it works in the inside.

I'd really appreciate you to post the process you are talking about, I still don't know how to edit roms, compile it and package it for a flash from recovery.

I'm sure I can help ;)

Thanks!
i was waiting for this ROM.

- the WiFi works only if you install the UNITY v2 Kernel
- the sound works, but it has some problem... all the sounds (speaker, headphone, in call sound) are not clear, are a little bit distorted..

Thanks again, good work!

    Hey guys I'm not a big MIUI fan but what MIUI Scotland is doing is messed up and if you support the real MIUI devs, THEN I think you should support their efforts in spreading the word and exposing MIUI Scotland for stealing work without proper credit!!

    OMFG!
    What does this despute has to do with superkids amazing ports?
    Shame on you, spamming on all that threads!
    Guys like you should be banned!!

    Is it really necessary to dig up a dev thread from July just to share this "news"..? :/
