This ROM is built from CM7 nightlies and MIUI.US MIUI translation

I would like to thank the CM7 crew, Dalingrin et al for all their hard work in making the nook such a viable device. Without their determination, ingenuity and generosity this ROM would not be possible.

I would like to thank MIUI.US team for their help in getting this port off the ground and a wonderful translation and base from which to work from.

Most everything *should* work. Please let me know if you spot any port specific bugs.

Caveats:
- You must have an SDCARD to boot, I dont know why. (won't fix)
- You should flash with the latest CWM 3.2.0.1+

MIUI for Beginners

Source: http://en.miui.com/a-10.html

Already flashed MIUI ROM? OK, pick up your phone now, let’s start our happy journey of MIUI ROM.

The first step: selecting apps

Various apps will greatly enrich your cell phone, so firstly let’s select the apps to your taste. Use the Android Market and download what you would like. If you are using a backup app and restoring apps from a previous ROM, only restore the apps and not the data. Otherwise that will create a lot of force close issues.

Tip: How to copy files from the computer to the phone? First connect your phone to your computer via data cable, pull down the notification panel from the top of the phone, click “USB connected”, and then click "Turn on USB storage”.

After copying, do not forget to select the option of “Turn off USB storage”, otherwise "File Manager” in the phone will not be able to find the sd card, as it is being occupied by the computer.

Now I have a lot of apps, how to put them in order?

All apps successfully installed are listed on the desktop, however, they may not be in the order you want, how to put them in order?
pic112.jpg


Long press an app icon and then you may move it freely. When it is moved to the screen border, the screen will automatically switch to the next screen.

How to add a screen? Use two fingers to pinch on the desktop to enter screen thumbnail mode. Then you may add or delete screens.

How to delete an app? Long press the app icon you want to delete, drag it on top of the trash box and click OK to delete it.

The second step: let's make your phone different.

A phone without style is nothing remarkable, so let’s make your phone different!
pic113.jpg


Changing wallpaper: Click Menu button on the desktop, select “Change Wallpaper” to replace the wallpaper. In addition to the existing wallpaper in the phone, thousands of pieces of wallpaper are also available online.
Changing theme: Themes make great changes to your interface style. Click “Theme Manager” on the desktop to select the theme you like. Also, more online themes are available online.

Selecting ringtones and more: click “Settings” on the desktop to set call and notification ringtones. In “Personalization” under “Personal” tab, you may find more options.

The third step: it’s time for some advanced techniques!

Well, you are no longer a beginner now, so let’s learn some advanced techniques.

pic114.jpg


Adding widgets on the desktop: press the Menu button on the desktop, select "Edit Mode", and then click the icon on the upper right corner to access the interface of “Add Widgets”. Choose your favorite widget on the top, and then drag it to the screen below.

Using folders to manage desktop apps: in the interface of “Add Widgets”, drag [Folder] to the desktop. You may drag multiple apps into folders to classify them. After opening the folder, you may click the edit icon in the upper left corner to rename the folder.

Using toggles panel to improve efficiency: drag the notification panel down from the top, click "Toggles" to go to the toggles panel (It goes to the toggles panel in default of notice.) On the panel are listed the most commonly used toggles, you may click to quickly enable or disable a toggle. Long press on the icon will launch the settings for that icon.

Guest mode: enable the “Guest Mode” toggle in the panel, and your calls and text messages logs will be hidden, and all installed applications cannot be removed. You may have a try when you need to show your phone to guests or children.

Importing contacts or binding accounts: you may use some apps to import a batch of contacts, or bind Google account directly in "Settings"> "Personal"> "Accounts & Sync Settings" to sync contacts at any time.
How to print screens? Press "Menu" key and "Volume Down" key at the same time to print a screen. The printed image is saved in the directory of MIUI in the SD card.

How to copy files from the computer without using the data cable? In case of a Wi-Fi connection, enter “File Manager” on the desktop, select the tab of "Remote Administration" to start the service, and then you will get an address. Enter the given address on the computer, then you may copy files without using a data cable!

Of course I would love to have all those great tablet tweaks CM7 has, but MIUI is closed source and even though they base off CM7 merging in the those changes at a smali level is probably going to be a nightmare. So I don't know if I'll get around to that. Same with Landscape in the launcher.

Installing MIUI on SDcard

I also love CM7 and the developers. Just seeing what this is about. I liked to Credit Verygreen for his installer, Dal for his OC kernel, and everyone that help with the boot menu for this SDcard install. Without them none of the things that we do would be possible for the rest of us?

Used verygreen's 1.3 img to create an image. Appended prefix update-cm- with the rest being the MIUI downloaded zip. Unmounted and remounted SDcard. Copied file to the Boot partition. Start Nook with SDcard and VG Penguin recovery did the rest.

Took out SDcard and replace in pc. Loaded Dal's OC 06/30/11 sd version. When starting up with SDcard in nook, held down "n" to enter boot menu, selected sdcard, recovery, and booted in Penguin recovery with Dal's kernel being installed.

Could not get USB cable to mount on pc or mac. Went to the File Explorer and turned on ftp. From an ftp client on my mac (pc would be okay also) I created and Android Apks folder and drug the TitaniumBackup.apk to it. I next mounted 16 GB Sandisk SDcard containing my TitaniumBackup folder. I used the File explorer to install the TitaniumBackup.apk. I slide the home screen to find the app, click problems to install the latest busybox, and then install SetCPU to overclock to 1200 and change the governor to ondemand.

Next install Button Savior. From here it will be apps we want from TitaniumBackup folder.

yes you can run it off a sd card and use the size agnostic image file and rename the file to a cm7 stock name and it will install it for you.

on my "bad" sd card, 16gb non sandisk, I didn't get any fc's but a lot of lagging, but no crashes or sod.

    Update 2.2.3

    Well gang, here it is....Miui 2.2.3 for the Nook Color. First of all this update would not be possible without andmer's original port, and the help of Miui US (specifically lithium76 also known as 0xD34D, scott951, and gatormark08 also known as Mark Hoj). This update is based on the latest Cyanogen 2.3.7 Gingerbread base. Market has been fixed and will auto-update to version 3.4.4. Also included in this update is a modified launcher with customizable grid size (courtesy of lithium76. The modified launcher can be found as a standalone apk here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1460776. Please be sure to hit lithium76's thanks button.


    Temporarily until properly hosted on MIUI.us,
    Download Here: 2.2.3
    MD5 Sum - d6f90eced45d5c2d698c16f2c36840b0
    Download Here: 2.1.20

    20120128_202707.jpg

    Fix Widget Alignment Here:
    1. Go to settings>personal>launcher and set the row spacing to 5.
    2. Download the local.prop.zip (attached below)
    3. Extract the local.prop file from the zip, then using any file explorer with root access (Root Explorer, E-Strongs, etc.) copy and paste the local.prop file into /data.
    4. Reboot
    What this does: Changes the lcd density locally (on device only). It will not change the lcd density as read by the market. By default I have the density set to 200, because that's how I like it. You may change that number to whatever you like (default for Nook Color is 160, Miui rom defaults at 240) using the text editor feature in your root file explorer. A reboot will be required for any changes you make to that number to take effect.

    ENJOY

    Sorry if I've missed something around the posts, but I just downloaded and flashed the new version. When I use Market, I am getting FC again.

    What happened here?

    thanks

    Market version shows 3.4.4

    Well, I would have to guess that your wipe was incomplete (not that you did it wrong, but for whatever reason it just didn't completely wipe data).....but don't worry, see below.

    Build in Data traffic monitor and firewall (apps monitor) isn`t woring in 1.9.16 and 2.1.20.
    Is it a known issue?
    Or is there a solution?

    Data traffic monitor seems to be working ok for me not sure about the firewall. To be honest I've never really tested either of them before, since we don't have data or data plans for the Nook.

    Update To All
    I HAVE EXERCISED THE DEMONS!!!
    I have finally squashed the market bug!!!! Will test for a day or so and update to 2.2.3. Be on the lookout for a new build.

    Before everyone starts jumping ship on Miui I am working on the market issues & an update. I'm currently updated to 2.1.20, have a partial solution to the launcher misalignment, and have gotten rid of the no service indicators. Unfortunately Market issues are still present & plaguing me. I'm waiting / hoping for a pm back from andmer before I can go much further.
