Odd. It never was a problem on an ICS-based MIUI ROM I'd tried. All the themes downloaded beautifully. Besides, at the rate it was downloading, it would take me an entire night just to get a theme or two across.

****Reflashed the ROM. Wi-Fi is working reasonably well now.****

NEWS:

i think everybody know that MIUIv5 is coming ..,
i will also try to port MIUIv5 with CM10.1 but we must wait till MIUIv5 is available for Nexus S ! I cant port from MI-Phone (because of hardware dif.)

We all know about our memory problems with miui jellybean, so i started alternative projects :

* Miui Porting with Micode Patchrom : I got now a few roms working with patchrom methode
i used latest cm9 (ICS) as baserom ! memory on miui - ics is acceptable (much better than on jellybean) but still some things are not working , when i have stable rom , i will upload it ...

I am also working on

* FirefoxOS
* UbuntuTouch



For those people who are using my latest rom (Miui-3.1.18):

Go to "Settings"- "Developement options" and make following changes :

* Show rounded Corners = off
* Window Animation Scale = .5x
* Transition animation scale = off
* Animatior duration scale = off
* Force GPU rendering = ON
* Background process limit = 3 (at most 3 processes)

I use this settings ! Phone is little bit faster and little bit more memory ...



updates will come in the next 2 weeks

Personally I'm keeping an eye on ChameleonOS, there's not too much info about it, but it will be an open source ROM that support MIUI themes.

Edit:

about miui V5:
I'm not too excited. Android 4.1 is released months ago, they will have MIUI V5 ready when the next iteration of AOSP is out. Since they have the MIUI phone out, MIUI is just another heavy skin. It is bloated and the UI is beginning to look dated.

But honestly, I'd love to try, but the phone can't handle ICS< +skin.

Thought, being based on Jelly Bean, as opposed to ICS, which was really sluggish, things would be different now. It worked well for a while, until I decided to install some themes. Now, even with the default theme, the ROM is extremely slow. Scrolling/swiping are okay, but it still takes several seconds to open contacts, messaging, settings, etc., and even several applications. Guess it's all to do with the extremely heavy theming. MIUI is a beautiful ROM, but unfortunately, it's let down by its speed.

CM10 has THEMES?!!! Damn, was I really out of the loop. Heading off to download some right now.
LOL, I didn't know CM themes were more than icons either until a couple of month ago. I can recommend Matted Blues and the Sony theme for CM10.

But I meant MIUI Black Android theme in my previous post

The pretty UI was the one thing that had made me want to switch over to MIUI. However, I've always liked CM for the smooth, stock-like experience that it provides, and now knowing that it supports theming (though not to the extent of MIUI), I think I'm going to settle on it for the moment. I didn't get to do a lot of searching, but I got myself a nice, dark theme named Betterbean. Contacts list dark with a white font. Messaging dark with a white font. Everything looks lovely! I'm going to be checking out some more themes, and I'll be looking into what you've recommended, too.

LT15 = LT18, the only difference is the CPU frequency
Baseband it is recomended to upgrade it in acordance with the android build number. (ex : Gb works best with BB64, ICS BB77 works with any ICS, JB works best with BB83)...
When upgrading baseband, libs file is actualy the "driver", so yes, flash libs aswell !!!!
