Since we do have some progress on CM7 for our device, why don't we start the development on MIUI as well? :)

Just to give you an idea of what MIUI is:

http://en.miui.com/

Developers are welcome! I am really new in porting builds in kitchens, but I am ready to get my hands dirty on this one :)

I have knowledge on working in linux environments, compiling kernel/modules, scripting, but lack of android kitchen knowledge, any pointers where to start will be great!

With jerpela/blagus and other developer's permission, perhaps if I have any questions and or needed files/drivers/etc for building MIUI up, I can ask?

I'll start a git hub or cvs for this project as well - let me know if you wanna get involved too!

this might be a good place to start...

[TUTORIAL] porting miui nexus rom to x10

BTW... Arc is using MSM8255 chip... so u can look at all compatible devices... like HTC Desire HD, HTC Desire Z, others....

u will mostly have to uses/mix files from SE stock libs + other places...


just one request... whenever u use files from someone else kindly give them credit for it, cause they have worked hard to make those fles working... a link to their ROM/patch/etc would be also be a good idea...


best of luck!

Start over with your project. We can give help @ some problems, but not at all now ;)

BTW: I cannot understand why you like MIUI, but that's quite personal :p I hate Iphone noobish layout.

Regards

Bin4ry: one of the few reasons is that it has a fully customizable theming engine in the back where u can just customize quite a lot of things like status bar, fonts, icons, etc, instead of using a third party launcher. Anyway like you said, it's a personal taste thing :)

Thanks everyone for the heads up, will spend the long weekend to work on this! :)

CM7 theme management is great, mind you, but again it's personal taste I guess. Been living on CM7 since G2 Hero, HD Mini, X10, HD2, Desire Z, SGS, got tired I guess :) I like the fact that MIUI allows customization based on components instead of a full theme overhaul, and notifications are top-to-bottom toast popups, built in ftp, fonts, etc. Perhaps these can all be replaced by updating framework-res, or installing customized fonts, etc. But ease of use is also my concern...

Aaaaanyway before i go full throttle and brag on about its good vs bad, I shall stop and thank DooMLoRD for the X10 guide! :D

Miui its not about themes, its a full android custom rom. Own file manager, music , camera, gallery, and mucho more.

I don like iphone style too but you can custumize miui like hell :D

you have to use precompiled miui because there is no source released and this is like porting any other rom from any device,you can do the same with htc sense

in our opinion this mixing of libs should not be done,take an source and build your own rom then theme it as you like

mixing libs is not desired, even if filename is the same there are many things to be considered!

Main thing for miui

Ramdisk
.sh etc files
Libgsl
Hw and hw config files

I don't know arc files so may need other core files not in miui rom
Then you make sure media and system server work correct and should at least boot

Then backsmali service jar and configure power and native daemon are correct

Thought it was just me, just bought the arc because I was impatient waiting for GB on the X10.. trips miui cam works well but i hate the layout.

The Arc has GB, a great cam & an unlocked BL.. so bring on the AOSP 2.3.4 & CM7 roms..

i'm just curious about the lockscreen rdannar demonstrated in x10 miui rom, the rest i distaste a bit ^^
would be much more excited to see this lockscreen in other roms.

still - keep going & develop this rom, if not use this one, one might take parts of the work for use it elsewhere. dont think effort will be lost here :)
