I thought that using this icon pack would update my installed apps with miui-designed icons. Sadly this doesn't work, because the original miui-launcher, which is integrated in this rom is not supported.

Like many other icon packs it only works for cm-trebuchet, nova, action launcher, smartlauncher any many others.

Can someone give me a hint how to customize this rom with matching icons?

Theme app is completely chinese, almost every category looks like that are only wallpapers. And it's only very "special" chinese stuff. I can't find something like an icon pack. But it's okay, I will look around, maybe I will find something...
To customize parts it's the green circle with triangles in it then select icons then select the theme you want for icons.

Since this MIUI is based on a very outdated Android version...how's the security? The countless stagefright vulnerabilities are they patched?

In my opinion @Superwitschi has done some nice themes. For example this, called "canus": http://zhuti.xiaomi.com/detail/91365c00-5f69-4ab2-a4fd-4857437c8dfc
This link directly opens in the theme-app. By clicking on the name of the developer you can find many other themes which aren't "Chinese style" like the one on the theme start page.

Miui is not android, it's a FORK so security is up to date as stated on about phone.
That's a good information. But I can't find this "security patch information" on the "about phone" page like it is on a lollipo or marshmellow rom.

But I can say that for now it was a good choice to install this MIUI-ROM. All the marshmellow roms like cm13 or chroma began to lag in a heavy way after some days/weeks. Facebook often was a white screen for 5 or more seconds. Unlocking by pattern often took many seconds too. MIUI works fine and fluffy until now!

Any many thanks to @Kingzak34 for his help and information about this rom! :) :good:

Stock dpi is 320 if I remember correctly
Until now I didn't realized the problem with dpi. But today I installed Nova Launcher because I need an app drawer. I get used to it and want to have it back.
Now, after installing Nova I'm realizing that all the icons are very small.
Am I right that setting the rom to 320 dpi leads to a normal android look?

How can I change the dpi? Can't find such an option.

Thanks in advance!
 
Think you need to reboot to apply. And carefull with build.prop if you mess it up you'll be in bootloop. Flash back the rom to fix.
I used a buildprop editor, then it worked.

MIUI dpi is 300, modifying to 320 leads to incomplete icons on the right side of the shortcuts in the notification bar. So I'm using dpi 300 again.

Fortunately I realised, that the small icons where reasoned by the "Nova icon normalization feature".

So for now on all is fine. Thanks for your help! :)
 
I updated to 6.4.22 an now I have a problem.

The first attempt of updating with the incremental update package (aboot 60 mb) failed. The update app then suggested to install the complete rom. So I downloaded about 400 mb and flashed it via recovery.

The play services are closed every time I reboot the phone. My google account was erased and it is not possible to add a new google account. Seems legit, because google play services are not working. All installed apps are still there.

What can I do? Is there a way to rescue my installation? Would be nice if somebody can help me, maybe @Kingzak34?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I still tried this: http://en.miui.com/thread-162924-1-1.html
But this doesn't work because I can't choose to clear data. The button is "light grey", so I can not choose it.

Edit: Also cleared cache via recovery, nothing works. I have a data connection, WhatsApp works, but I can't browse the internet, chrome is not working.
May it help to flash the kk-gapps again? Or will it mess all up because of the updates which where installed in the last weeks?
Very sad, until today all was working like a charm.

Edit: Flashed the kk-gapps again. Seems to work. Needed to login again with my google acounts but it seems that all is good for now.

    Recognized MIUI 7 Port for Nexus 4​


    INTRODUCTION
    Hi everybody! Since MIUI ROM is growing more and more every day and it is also winning a lot of followers in this forum, luiseteyo an I, have decided to start a new thread with the official miui.com ROM by Lushengduan. All the credit goes for him, not for us, we are just “the updaters” of this thread, so all the people who like pure MIUI official rom can keep an eye on it without leaving xda-developers. Nothing more to add, enjoy MIUI.


    Please, do not post any question without reading the WHOLE second post. Thanks.
    Yes, that's ugly, but maybe people will do it...

    In this second post we will treat some interesting aspects that could be useful to the ROM users. We will mantain this thread updated, answering as many questions as we are able to, and we will provide information and fixes that will make this rom better and mor addapted to the user neccessities.



    INSTRUCTIONS
    The same as allways! Since this is a 4.2.2 ROM, I recommend this installation:

    1. Download the ROM
    2. Flash a recovery if you don’t have one installed.
    3. Make a full wipe from recovery (Cache, Dalvik cache, Data, System) if you come from another ROM or a soft wipe (Cache, Dalvik cache) if you come from an older MIUI version
    4. Flash the ROM
    5. Flash addons like gapps, modinstaller, other MODS, etc…​



    MIRRORS
    That chinise server is terribly slow, so I will try to post mirrors of the roms as quickly as I can so the download is easier to everybody ;)




    GOOGLE APPS
    To avoid huge size file downloads and errors while flashing you can use Google Installer. Just install it as a normal apk and download the gapps u want and no other.

    You can also download 4.2.2 gapps here

    FAQ

    What's the main difference between this ROM and others?
    This is the ROM made by lushengduan in miui.com. This is not an official release, but the dev is a recognized porter and a very good developer in the MIUI forums. That's why this ROM is so stable.

    Are you going to modify the ROM?
    No, Kingzak34 and I will update the thread regularly, with all the fixes, al the ideas, news, kernels, and other things that will let the user be in touch with miui.com ROM from xda. We aren't going to modify the ROM, but we will do our best to make it perfect. Since we don't have contact with the original developer, all the fixes, mods or whatever we do will be posted in the second post.

    How can I add different locations to Weather app? It seems to work only for Chinese cities...
    Download free bz weather and enable MIUI integration under settings.

    How can I disable MiPop bubbles and recover the navigation bar?
    Just flash ModInstaller. Select your favourite NavBar size and then select delete mipop and enable NavBar!

    How can I use the stock android Navbar and not the MIUI's one?
    As everything else... you can select that in ModInstaller

    I cannot install OTA automatically
    If u flashed any mod It won't let u update. Check this and try again ;)

    Can I flash this ROM from kit kat?
    Yes, you can, but you will have to flash a 4.2-4.3 compatible radio first and then make a full wipe.
