Thinking about switching to MIUI from CM7

    Hey guys, I've been thinking of going to MIUI for awhile but the lack of app drawer is kind of a turn off. Can you give me some reasons why you would choose MIUI for reasons other than themes? Are there any different useful functions native to MIUI? Are there big bugs present that aren't present on CM7? Tell me everything. :p If there is a similar post, I apologize. Thanks for your help everyone. :)

    I made the switch from cm7 to miui yesterday . I'm loving the themes on here. You can take screenshots and its rooted but no overclocking. Atleast my phone doesn't get all hot now since I was oc'ing at 1.5ghz with cm7. I don't really miss cm7.

    Also, There is an Overclocking Mod for MIUI.. But you need to download the app called no-frills CPU in the android market, to set your CPU and Governors.

    Installing a different launcher, like Go Launcher EX, will give you the app drawer that you desire.

    Menu softkey and volume down at the same time for screenshots.

    I just made a faux app drawer, I just put all my apps into a folder and put it on the dock.

    Do I need the mock kernel to overclock as well or is that now part of the final release of the ROM?
  10. miui is just android, if you dont like that 4 icon launcher then install Launcher pro. it has an app drawer and youll never notice the difference (except in settings menu and other areas that miui has customized)

    its the same reaosn why you install Go Launcher or LauncherPro to replace that useless 3 icon dock that stock gingerbread has.

    and yes i highly reccommend the mock kernel, changes everything makes things faster. i dont believe it comes in the rom as is.

    also, "Extended Settings" for miui, from the miui forums, you have to mount /system in recovery, flash the 11-25 version of extended settings, and there will be an app that lets you change everything about the status bar, color, transparency, carrier logo with custom text, icon locations. its really a must have, but you gotta look for it at miui forums

    although, CM7 reloaded has had so much development that it kind of outweighs how pretty miui is.

    at this point id stick with cm7 and wait for cm9 or miui v4 to be stable. thats what im doing at least.

    but i do LOOOOOVE miui. the lack of rotation animations kills me after having it in cm7 reloaded

    That's really clever!
    Can't believe I didn't think of that. Thank you! :)
