MIUI v4 ICS - 2.8.10


Current version: Alpha 0.3
MIUI Base: Crespo 2.8.10
Kernel/CM Base: Ray[ 2.0.2 / SuperHornet
Port by: Master_T


Not Working / bugs:

Same as CM9
USB mass storage / mtp (only part of usb subsystem that works is ADB)



Installation:
  • Use CWM recovery (TWRP *should* work as well, but I haven't tested it)
  • Wipe data/factory reset
  • Flash zip without signature check!
  • Reboot
Note 2: if at first boot you get stuck at boot animation wait a couple of minutes, then remove battery and reboot, should work ok from then on

Credits:
This rom couldn't be possible without the CM9 base it relies upon, so big thanks to: RomzesRover, [Ray, thepasto, lupohirp, parvata and all the people who contributed to that rom
This port couldn't be possible without the incredibly detailed and precise miui porting guide by Lens_Flare. You rock man!


Changelog:

0.3
Rebased on [Ray kernel & libs from SuperHornet 2.0.2

0.2
Rebased on CM9 Repack. Smoother UI and animations

0.1
Initial release

Please don't attempt to port cm7.2 its got errors wait for good release.
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError this says some android platform classes are missing, i hope some DEV helps you finding the missing classes, you can contact thePasto at acer liquid channel, he is very nice person he will help you for sure.

By the way first look in photos looks great, will wait for functioning version, hope everything goes fine.

Yes, but the problem, as you can see, is that the missing class is a Native (compiled) one, so I think it's not in one of the android JARs, but in a compiled native library. The problem is that it doesn't tell me the name of the class, nor the name of the library, so I don't know where to look, there are tons of them! Hope a dev can shed some light on this...

Well, I think it's time for a couple of new pics:

A huge thanks to Lens_Flare, without his advice (and patience :D) this wouldn't have been possible.

Now before you ask for release, there's still a lot of stuff not working, and the rom is quite slow. Will have to see if it can be fixed in the next days.
But at least it's "almost working". Currently trying to make superuser work, without it I can't do a lot of things...

Well, I managed to fix almost all bugs. (only things still not working that I can see are leds and usb storage, I'll have to look into that)

The main problem is that the rom, while working, is VERY slow/laggy, at least on the A1. I don't know if something can be done about that, the thing is that MIUI as always been slower than CM, and I don't think we can change that. Maybe it will be faster on LiquidE.

Fantastic, i love miui. But i think that if CM9 is a few slow on A1 due to the lack of ram, will be difficult to run well MIUI v4. But i hope

First of all I love MIUI and thank you Master_T for porting this nice rom. I have just tried it today. As you already told, it was slow when I compare it to GB based Miui roms. Still it must be tweaked for our Liquid. By the way I'm using Liquid E and the overall performance was not that good to keep it as daily usage. It was hard to type messages because of the touch responsiveness. Also Superuser didn't give permission/ didn't take "Liquid Settings" into the startup apps. I had to set the values again after restart. Battery drain was of course more than GB builds. I wish Liquid was performing Miui4 smoothly. But unfortunately it looks like we must be patient for sometime. Thank you again Master_T! if you hadn't tried it, we wouldn't have seen this beautiful UI :)

Liquid Settings has problems with root on my normal GB miui as well, I think the bug is related to the app itself.

As for performance, that was my bigger fear. Unfortunately I don't think we can do much about it. Enabling "force gpu rendering" under settings --> developer options seems to help a bit. But if it's unusable on LiquidE as well I fear this will remain a proof of concept, unless someone knows of a way to make it lighter.

I'd been using the last port (1.12.30) of Lens_Flare for more than 5 months until I see the CM 7.2 by thepasto. And there is not that kind of problem with Liquid Settings in that miui rom :/

Sorry I didn't explain clearly. Liquid Settings does work on GB miui for me, but it doesn't show the "allow root" popup correctly, at least for me, it just gets stuck on "asking for root" without the popup showing when started for the first time. Still, once I click "back" and re-enter the app it still works without problems.
Anyway, I didn't test it on this MIUI, but I tested several other apps that require root and they work correctly, so I can only assume is a LiquidSettings problem. Try to open the "LBE Guard" app manually and give root permission to Liquid Settings from there.

Hello Master_T will you please try to upgrade your alpha release by the sources of CM9 rom by Honor32.
It may help to get a smooth ui. Thanks
