Been using this since release and it is really good, its not as smooth as Slim Rom but the themes and look make up the shortfall. It is my first delve into MIUI and it's a really nice o/s and one which i will explore further when i get a phone that can handle it with more memory as the G300 is lacking here.

Still using it though as battery life is great and no issues with 3g and everything just works as it should unlike the niggles i had with Baidu which i loved and is very similar to this.

Thanks for releasing it Paulzie :)

R2 version released with fixes below. Download files now being hosted on solidfiles.com rather than mediafire.com. Did a bit of a touch up of the introductory post with some new screenshots.

FIX: build.prop modded to be Ascend G300/B952(spoofed) to eliminate Google Play issue. REF Mirayi.
FIX: Preloaded gapps-ics to correct library issue. REF Mirayi.
FIX: Now has two Gallery icons - HWGallery (for MEWidget compatibility) and GoogleGallery (for fixes: REF Mirayi, Pyntux).
NEW: Include uninstallable apps: Android Weather, Google Maps, MiUI Music+Gamecenter, ES root explorer. NOTE: one version older Maps included as current moved Latitude to Google+.
NEW: Replaced MIUIHome Launcher from 2.7.13 with 4x5 icon cell layout option.
NEW: Added AdAway /etc/hosts file to eliminate online ads
NEW: zipalign system and user APKs to reduce RAM consumption

No wipes required? Just flashed R1 about an hour ago.. damn!

BTW, could you add 'patch', or something for default MIUI Browser and camera?

Awesome ROM anyway! ^^

Edit: It is some kind of bug, that some of my songs, which have "nordic" letters, eg ÄÖÅ, on it´s name, they are replaced with chinese letters?
Edit2: I´m using MIUI Music player.

Maybe this Miui have better ram management, but cm9 Miui by N88 is faster... I would like to see this rom as fast as N88 Miui... :( :) N88 rom is fast because of CM9, so why you do not port miui on cm9? I think it would be best Miui for g300, 2.7.6 on cm9, that would be very good...

The camera and browser are the type as were supplied with 2.7.6. Well.. the browser was changed for one without the bottom line but the original browser is included as an optional extra.

Please try the one version newer MIUI-Music-2.7.13.apk. The changelog says "Fix "folder" filter settings display the wrong information".

Download links fixed

Sorry.. WYSIWYG editor mucked up the URLS. It's fixed now.

I personally am avoiding CM because Huawei apps (camera, FM radio, EmotionUI) can't run on it. I find the performance of this ROM, when overclocked, to be more than acceptable. It's the versions after 2.7.6 that are just too slow.

EDIT: Corrected MIUI-Music-2.7.13.apk link.

U need to make it clearer that this is Geno rom. You put credits under a spoiler so people will miss it.

Thanks for the tip.

Though can't see how they'd miss it since it's the 7th of 8 boldfaced titled sections presented titled as Source of base ROM. I'm assuming those reading have the ability to see and read text and click the spoiler button. Spoilers are used throughout so titles are indexed and users drill down into the section of interest.

The only serious issue I have with this rom is that it looses signal. I'm in an area where the signal is generally low but with Miui-GB and others in the worst cases I have 1-2 bars whereas with this rom it often shows no signal at all. Am I the only one? Are there any solutions?

I have no signal issue problems. The ROM doesn't overwrite the modem partitions (/dev/10 and /dev/11) so no change there. What would have changed is the RIL (Radio interface layer).

I've uploaded RIL-B960, RIL-B952 and RIL-B926 (for restore) to the repository. Just copy them to your phone, boot into recovery and flash the RIL-B952 or RIL-B960. I've flashed RIL-B952 and right now am hotspotting via it, so it works.

Pls test and advise if this fix gets you a better signal.

Another thing to check would be the Huawei Power Manager. If you've set it endurance then theoretically it may invoke a lower power state for the radio and cause connectivity issues. Not sure, but worth a look.

EDIT: Fixed repository link.

The link you posted (repository) on Solidfiles is no good, you may want to double check it. I didn't change power management.

Thanks for the trouble of making those zips. Tried them all and didn't notice any difference in displaying signal. Besides I just got a call today while I had no bars showing and I had decent signal (?!) so it might be just a display issue.

On another note, I couldn't find the battery icons (in MiuiSystemUI.apk - Miui 2.7.6) to change them to circle and % which I like better then the stock, any idea where they might be? On a more recent version of the app they are in /res/raw.

The battery icons are definitely in system\app\MiuiSystemUI.apk\res\raw . If you come up with a new set of battery icons then maybe I can share them in the repository? I'd like a charging % icon too.

One way to get actual signal strength is to check the dBM value for it. Do that by dialling *#*#INFO#*#* then click phone information.
