    this is a port of the atrix miui {major thanks to steven and the mad atrix crew of dev's}
    found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1383721
    and several different compatible miui builds from the miui.us {thanks guys for everything}
    used jokers cm9 as a base {and of course the MAN who without him none of this would be possible}
    found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1413349
    making good use of the guides on the xda especially prox guide {thanks prox}

    *This will fix the issue of the EMMC (internal memory) not showing up on your apps. must flash after first boot
    to flash fix:
    go into recovery wipe dalvick cache flash fix zip, wipe dalvick cache, fix permissions and reboot

    * please note some of these builds are based off the atrix miui and jokers photon cm9 so in theory what works/doesnt work, fixes, and mods should apply here

    Please report any and everything and as always please make a backup before flashing

    I saw a random post about that somewhere. That's great news! And really tempting for me to finally take the rooting plunge.

    everything is running just need to use an app like gosms for mms other than that flawless

    Nice to hear about your work, I was a big MIUI fan on the Evo4G, this may convince me to unlock (only get 4G in a few specific places anyway).
