  1. Huh? Are you serious? If so then of course lots of people use GPS for maps etc.
  2. Topic has been dead lately. Just ordered one of these for my 11 year old son (maybe for Xmas): http://www.xiaomitoday.com/uhans-a101-review-can-afford-60/ €50 delivered to Ireland. http://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-uhans-a101 Obviously not the greatest specs in the world but looks interesting... :-)
  3. Just my opinion but ... http://www.modaco.com/forums/topic/375643-rom442-miui-v6-v7/?do=findComment&comment=2276538
  4. Who? Me? I followed the instructions in the thread and had problems with kouskous's MIUI but none with t_gumienny's which my gf is still using with no problems at all (and I think I flashed it with TWRP). To be honest this thread and others about MIUI were a bit confusing about what was a good/the best MIUI so my experience is that t_gumienny's is pretty good. Just flashed it and didn't need to hack anything (e.g. IPv6, notification stuff etc.). I'm happy and she's happy so that's good. :-)
  5. Hiya ESR - how are you getting on with things? What are you running these days? I still haven't had a chance to install the latest official/stock Global Stable MIUI or the latest MIUI 8 (beta?) so I'm still on 7.3.2.0.
  6. Another quick update - this ROM is still working really well for my gf and no major issues.
  7. I'm surprised at that as I thought that the Xiaomi.eu ROMs had a good reputation and were pretty stable/reliable? Was it the last MIUI 7 or the latest MIUI 8 (beta?)? I was going to try Xiaomi.eu but I think I might just stick with stock for now as I find it good. The only issues (still on Global Stable 7.3.2.0) I have are relatively minor irritants: Fingerprint sensor sometimes doesn't unlock - but I think that's when my fingers are wet, very hot, greasy etc. and I haven't tried re-registering my fingerprints Camera isn't great - but that's a well known issue with this phone or at least the latest ROMs. Not sure if it's the lens, sensor or firmware. Screen auto-brightness seems a bit odd to me and in sunlight I often can't see anything - not the first phone that I've used that has this issue Sometimes when unlocking I get this message about not covering the top part of the screen but I don't think that I am and I don't know how to disable this (useless to me) option. But otherwise I find it great, reliable and great battery life (usually 2+ days with data, wifi, BT on) - although I'm probably a light enough user in terms of calls, texts etc.
  8. Any use? http://www.modaco.com/forums/topic/372543-coolpad-f1-8297w-review-info-software-custom-roms/?do=findComment&comment=2273714 FWIW I got the second one before I passed my F1 onto my gf.
  9. I don't know. I know that CM ROMs always require separate installation of gapps. Have you tried Xiaomi.eu? As far as I understand they take the China Stable and Developer ROMs and mod them for use outside of China, optimise them, add certain features etc. Arguably a bit moot now that Xiaomi provide Global ROMs but maybe they still have advantages over stock? https://xiaomi.eu/community/forums/miui-weekly-rom-releases.103/
  10. Did that work OK for you? Edit: sorry - posted before I read the most recent posts so I guess that it did other than the other issues along the way... No issue with the dm verify issue mentioned by some people in that thread? What version of TWRP did it install? I'd be inclined to go with feds64's thread that I mentioned earlier but I guess that there are probably other options too, Settings > About phone etc. should clarify what version of MIUI you have. I didn't think I'd like MIUI as I normally prefer AOSP but I really do like it so far. :-)
  11. Glad you got it sorted. I'm surprised that it was so difficult as it worked fairly easily for me. If you want to install TWRP now then use this guide and choose option #4. http://en.miui.com/thread-296053-1-1.html What ROM are you going to use? Personally I'm happy enough with stock MIUI - haven't tried the latest MIUI 7 yet never mind MIUI 8 (beta?).
  12. GeekBuying doing a special on the RedMi Note 3 Pro 3GB + 32GB for US$167 at the moment: http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Xiaomi-Redmi-Note-3-Pro-5-5-Inch-FHD-3GB-32GB-Smartphone-Qualcomm-Snapdragon-650-Hexa-Core-MIUI-V7-16-0MP-TOUCH-ID---Dark-Gray-362397.html
  13. As I said before BL unlocking only worked for me on China Developer ROM. There's another flashing guide here from feds64 which may be more up to date than the one that I linked to above: http://en.miui.com/thread-294318-1-1.html However I haven't used this one yet. I do plan to go back to a pristine stock ROM install including stock recovery and no root before running the TWRP/root script again and use option #4 this time to avoid the need for a hacked boot.img: http://en.miui.com/thread-296053-1-1.html
  14. Yes - it's all covered in the link that I posted above which you need to read! http://en.miui.com/thread-235865-1-1.html That thread links to this page which has the fastboot ROMs: http://en.miui.com/a-234.html That thread explains exactly how to flash ROMs in this way.
  15. Any progress ESR?
