[HOW-TO] [3.6.28]

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I was looking for a MIUI v5 ROM for our beloved G300's.

As most of you have U8815 (I suppose, which is the European version) and the only up to date MIUI v5 ROM is U8818 (the Chinese version) only, I'm writing a little How-To get the U8818 ROM running on U8815.

MIUI has released a list of unofficial ports:

http://en.miui.com/t...d-2651-1-1.html

The U8818 entry links to: http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shareid=2095293285&uk=3791923799 (Just click the button which is labeled with the size)

Now we have to modify the original zip:

  1. Unzip.

  2. Navigate to META-INF/com/google/android

  3. Edit update-script with your favorite text editor.
    In the first line the script checks if the device really is a U8818. So what you do is replace every occurance of 'u8818' by 'u8815'

  4. Optional: Navigate to system/

  5. Optional: Edit build.prop
    Replace every occuarance of u8818 with u8815 you want to. It doesn't really matter.

  6. Zip it again.

  7. Flash.

I've done the same thing to 3.6.28 last week and the ROM works very very well. Very stable, but a bit laggy like it's normal for MIUI on slower devices.

I've done the modifications to the 3.7.5 version and I'm providing it here:

Please be careful. This zip is untested.

I don't provide any warranty though.

If the flash is not successfull and your device is dead or bricked afterwards, it is not my problem and I won't be able to help you.

Good luck!
