Feature screenshots: More screenshots and comments in my initial impression post with stock icons.


Home screens with stock icons, V5 default wallpaper, Android Weather and toggle hotspot widgets and some folder reorganisation. Lockscreen doubles as MIUI Music player controls.

HW Music's billboard top20 music chart tracks plus lots of free games (inc English ones). Need to intuit your way through some Chinese though. This and the odd Chinese names against themes is the only place where see Chinese characters.

Good job Paulzie. I've been running 2.7.6 with OK kernel as per your previous instructions and all is fine (except the mentioned bug) after a few days, battery is also excellent btw.

Downloading...gonna try now... :)

Edit:

For now, very good... You could get v4 theme from Narkoma88 Miui cm9, he use old lock screen wich doen not have glithes like others...

Can you tell what are those chinese stuff in "recomended" in message app? But, there's "hide recomended tab" option in advanced settings, so no big deal...

There's also lag when go in to gallery, but thats because effects are turned off, so you can try to use miui gallery and miui camera :)

For now this is my daily rom, everything is good...

If I can help somehow to improve this rom, I'm online... :)

I Installed it :) I really like it :)

But there's something not working, when i was trying to restore some applications it wouldn't restore, so i went to the store and those apps like Google +, Contacts +, Android Weather and some more said "Incompatible with your phone Huawei U8815".

I hope this has some kind of fix :) Other than that, just the gallery doesn't load my sd card stuff but i installed picfolder and works just fine.

Can you provide an exact app that doesn't install from Play for you? I just installed Google Maps fine. Don't see an "android weather" you mention to try. The fix would be getting the right device/product names in the build.prop file, which I had assumed were correct.

The supplied Gallery is a Huawei one that is needed for the "choose an album" picture/link to work from the MEWidget. Other gallery utils like the Google one wont work there but if not using MEWidget's "choose an album" icon then it doesn't matter.

@Paulzie

Change your build.prop settings so the phone is recognised as an ASCEND G300. Then more apps should work correctly. Also, when adding Antutu scores to your opening post, disable the SD card benchmark for accurate results.

Is there any way of removing the app labels in the home screen? I think it would look a lot better without them.
I know another launcher would do it but i don't want to loose the Miui effect.
Good job regardless :)

Thanks. I've noted the fix for that Chinese text in the opening post. Something I skimmed and missed. ROM improvement suggestions are most welcome :)

Yes, after trying:

- Geno 2.7.6 and 3.2.27 release -> same problem
- HTC Desire HD build.prop entry -> same problem
- B960/B952 build.prop -> same problem

I too resorted to using Market Helper to get the apps too. Strange thing is even though I set it to make the phone appear as a Nexus 4, the web version of the Play store identified it as a "Huawei Ascend G300". Is that what happened for you too?

Now the Market Helper sets the operator, something that the build.prop fixes I tried so far didn't do. I'm wondering if that's the cause of the probem?

@Paulzie

Thank you for the feedback. I tried many build.prop fixes per response above this one and still couldn't nut it out. Fixed the Antutu score too.

I agree, it would look good without the labels but I see no option for that in the launcher settings.

There's a V5 thread on here. If you try it would be curious how it's performance compares. I found 2.7.13 or newer builds are overly taxing on memory resources. This one runs as smooth and fast as a stock ICS one but brings a stack of awesome MiUI features with it.

After reserching for the Market Helper i found loads of posts that led me to the google apps "missing library" problem, so then i installed google apps again, i guess that's why i could finally download the apps from the Markert with the help of the Market Helper (Nexus 4) thing after refreshing the dashboard (as it said on the site), maybe that's why your still appeared as Ascend G300.
Hope it helped :)

Just a suggestion, maybe you could put the google apps with the rom all together, maybe that would solve the problem :3

The first boot would see my 3G connection fail. Need to power off either by pulling the battery or using Settings->Factory->fastboot=off, then restart as a fix.

Long-press home button to bring up the task manager, then ZAP the processes with the left bottom button. Press right-bottom button to bring up App process control.

I've made a candidate R2 build that's merged Google apps and so gets rid of the missing library error. Still needed Market Helper to get the Android Weather though.

Building 2.7.10 on a B960 platform

I tried to do a copy across of files to make a B960 + 2.7.10 build but found out the hard way that MIUI integrates into the base build. Required would be applying patchrom/u8815 to 2.7.10 source + [ROM][ICS] Stock+ ROM . Task looks a bit daunting so I've PMed the patchrom/u8815 author josalaito on here to see if he can assist.

I never understood the benefits of B960 over B926 but as an exercise it would be interesting to get a Miui built for U8815, good luck. I would also caution against the benefits of too many init scripts and/or build.prop additions since in my experience (confirmed by some people with knowledge) they are mostly hype and work only as long as the placebo effect lasts. I'm still running your initial recipe and am quite satisfied with it.
