Does any one still use this rom? How comes no one has posted in this thread for 9 days?

What version of MIUI is the best?

I am on stock JVS and want to try this ROM. Can someone give a brief pros and cons as this forum is too large for me to search every post. My main concern is backup and restore of data. Does data restoring works fine ? and how's is the overall performance and battery life of this ROM.

you could just read the last 10 pages and find out, just because i doubt that anyone will give you the pros and cons.

JUst tell me about the restoring of apps through titanium backup. Does it work fine ? And secondly can i easily un-install by flashing through ODIN ? I don't wanna do factory restore. Thanks

you can restore trough titanium back-up, but not data, only apps, though it can be a little risky, after that, sure , if you don`t like it, you can just flash with odin whatever base you want, but with pit file,repartition, which means factory reset :)

    NEW Guide by Rahulrulez: MIUI Installation Guide Revamped


    Also check: MIUI ModRoms
    "The first rule of CyanogenMod release dates is you do not talk about CyanogenMod release dates...
    ... the second rule of CyanogenMod release dates is YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT CYANOGENMOD RELEASE DATES!" <-- the SAME applies to this! MIUI is based on CM7, so CM7 bugs REMAIN. Please acknowledge this (thanks to Zach for suggesting i put this up!)

    Right, so after lots of trial and error, i finally got MIUI booting on our phones (the new compiled Gingerbread one for Nexus S).

    Now to the good stuff :)



    *Internal SD Card
    *Home button
    *Volume keys
    *Theme Manager
    *Camera (NOT choppy anymore + 720p, fixed thanks to CM7 Devs!)
    *File Manager
    *EXT SD! BIG thanks to Zygame!
    *Market works fine
    *PC Sync in file browser now works (Thanks BlackDino for pointing both out)
    *Search Function works
    *Battery Drain - mixed results!


    *SOME bugs from CM7 (INCLUDING: Battery drain, TV OUT, choppy MKV playback, etc.)



    31/03/2011: Please visit Galnet's website AND itskapil's site, follow the instructions there, they are much more concise, updated and it is noob friendly:

    Also, a very detailed Video Tutorial by itskapil:

    HUGE thanks to them! Hit their thanks button if they helped :).

    0: Be sure that you're based on a Froyo FW! CRUCIAL.

    1: Load these files:
    a) galaxy-efsbackup.zip / Mirror
    b) cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel.tar / Mirror

    d) speedmod-kernel-k13c-500hz.tar / Mirror

    (thanks to creative59 for mirrors!)

    2: Copy all files except:
    speedmod-kernel-k13c-500hz.tar & cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel.tar

    3: Flash speedmod-kernel-k13c-500hz.tar via Odin, wait for reboot and after that shutdown

    4: Start via 3-button-combo in recovery mode and install galaxys-efsbackup.zip

    5: Pull out battery and in again, start via 3-button-combo via download mode and flash cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel.tar via Odin BUT DON'T check repartition and auto reboot

    6: Pull out the USB cable and start (in download mode) with 3-button-combo in recovery mode (waiting until samsung logo appears)

    7: Choose "mounts & storage" and format system, data, cache

    8: Flash MIUI MCGv5.3.





    I will be taking a short break this week to concentrate on real life jobs! My warm thanks to Galnet for helping out and creating future builds. I'll be back soon, if i don't reply to PM's this means i will do once i am back. Also, please do check the FAQ here, if a PM is MIUI related and it's stated in the FAQ you will be directed there instead :) thanks!

    NOTE: IF anyone has an issue with the builds we create and think we shouldn't be using CM resources contact me directly.

    As of 28th March: MIUI has gone official, thanks to plane501 AND zygame (for being supportive in this matter as well) for letting everyone know! It seems they have used our port as a base It is a LOT better and more refined, more fixes, and the phone actually reboots once you apply a theme :D The official is made with CM sources and that MIUI-Dev team have made it. Kenia has worked very hard on RC2 and it is now AVAILABLE. We don't just deodex the ROM etc, it's customized and has a custom Kernel.

    UPDATE 24/03/11:

    Important Announcement:

    I have spoken to Kenia and will speak to jblanc, but as the official MIUI Port has started by MIUI.cn, we will only release Beta 6 as a final stage.

    This does not mean we will stop development, but there will not be any further quick updates as most of the issues have been ironed out EXCEPT External SD, which we are hoping the official team can fix.

    We'll be keeping track of the official port and post it here etc, customizing it for XDA'ers, but for now it seems unreasonable for us to do something that the official devs are working on.

    This is not finalized yet, but i thought i'd let you all know anyway. We are also very busy and cannot keep track all the time, but we will keep things going and not ditch this like the previous devs :). We've all come a long way with this project and it hasn't even been that long! Some astonishing work by my team mates.

    As of 24th March: It seems like it is our port on MIUI.cn, but i need to get in contact with them. If anyone can help in this matter please do let me know. Also, we will continue with updates but not so frequently, we have day jobs too ;). Basically whenever MIUI.cn release a new version, it'll be implemented, for sure. Please PM me if you can help in any way with this project, it can be anything, from GFX to coding.

    As of 25th March: New MIUI Update 1.3.25 was released today, and has been successfully ported :) Internal SD card is now working once more (thanks to Segnaro!) Beta 7 is on it's way!
