    Sense i seen a Thread that had a Link to were to get this rom i decided to actaully make a thread for this rom itsself orginal post link is here
    Miui rom - Android Forums



    I don’t really know where to start with this ROM, but it’s something that floated around Youtube for a few days and seems to have taken the ROM world by storm. MIUI is a Chinese ROM that was initially revealed on the Nexus One and was then quickly ported by US developers to every other device on the planet. It has a ton of features that would be nice to see on both stock Android and other custom ROMs even if it looks similar to the i*hone.
    Almost every thing should work and if ROMs are super interesting to you, then I suggest that you check this out even for a few minutes. It’s running Android 2.2 and a Chevy kernel so you can overclock it.

    How Install The Rom :
    1. Download the MIUI ROM to your Droid:
    Zen_MIUI-v2.zip
    2. Open ROM Manager and choose “Install ROM from SD Card.”
    3. Choose the Zen_MIUI-v2.zip file you just downloaded.
    4. When prompted, check BOTH boxes for making a backup and wiping data/cache.
    5. Your phone will reboot, make a backup, wipe and install the MIUI ROM.
    6. It should reboot if finished successfully. Enjoy your random ROM!

    If you run into a dialer force close issue
    check out this fix Simply flash the file in Clockwork just as you did with the ROM. No wipe necessary.

    Source
    Zen-Droid


    Fixes :

    OK guys, here it is: All known fixes for the Miui ROM in a single .zip
    MIUI_AllFixesInOne.zip

    TESTED AND WORKING PERFECTLY! Sorry it took a while, after messing with Miui ROM for 11 hours I needed to take a short break and jump in the shower. :)

    I am going to make this a comprehensive post so people don't have to spend the hours I did combing through everything.

    FIXES ADDRESSED WITH THE ABOVE .ZIP:
    - Accounts and Sync issues
    - Keyboard backlight
    - Includes "stock" Miui MMS app
    - Haptic feedback tweaks
    - Call settings translated to English

    Outstanding Issues (Not addressed by this .zip):
    - Force close when dialing *228
    - Force close in Settings menu when tapping on SD Card & Phone Storage settings
    - Not all apps will restore in Market upon install (EASILY ADDRESSED BY MAKING SURE ALL APPS ARE INSTALLED BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM)

    NOOBS QUICK INSTALL GUIDE (For Zen Miui V2):
    - Clear data/cache, flash ChevyNo1's SS4.8

    - Tap green robot, login to google account, allow contacts and apps to restore (MAY TAKE A WHILE. BE PATIENT. Sometimes I find downloading a new app will jumpstart the app restoration process in the market.)

    - Install above .zip on SD Card

    - Boot into recovery, install ZenMuiuV2 - DO NOT WIPE DATA/CACHE

    - After reboot ignore force closes, then go into Settings > Applications > Manage Applications

    - Tap ALL

    - Locate Contact Storage, tap it, then tap Clear Data, then locate Google Services Framework, tap it, then tap clear data
    (It also wouldn't hurt to open ROM Manager and tap Fix Permissions at this point)

    - Turn off phone, boot into recovery

    - Flash above .zip (MIUI_AllFixesInOne.zip)

    - REBOOT - ALL DONE. Enjoy Miui ROM!


    One more thing: If you have Root Explorer or equivalent, after doing this go into your /system/app folder and at the top you will see two similarly named files. One is AccountAndSyncSettings.apk and the other is AccountsAndSyncSettings.apk. The only one you need is the first one (singular Account, you don't need the one with the plural Accounts). The file name discrepancy is the reason there is a problem with account syncing on Miui. You can now delete the second file without causing any problems.

    OK, I'm going to go take the dog for a much needed walk!

    EDIT: I should make it CRYSTAL CLEAR, this ROM WILL NOT WORK if you wipe data/cache before installing it. If you install after wiping data/cache, for some reason the dialer constantly force closes. Everything else works but you can't make/receive phone calls... just follow the above instructions and you will get a 99% functional ROM.

    Also if this does not help and you got more question's you can always go this link were there is a Sub Forum Solo based for this Rom i will continue to update the thread to the latest fixe's ect or patches when i find some so if i don't see any or haven't posted any send me a pm with the link ect thanks

    Contacts works for me. Had to flash the smoked glass dialer because it was force closing. I don't really like how you add widgets and shortcuts. But so far it's pretty cool. Bunch of potential here.

    Installed earlier. Few random points.

    -I wish the lockscreen still incorporated vibrate as well as the other functions
    -Wish there were some built in scripts for ads, etc
    -I can't seem to be able to change the wallpaper. I changed the lockscreen wallpaper but when I change my regular wallpaper nothing happens.
    -I can't get the lockscreen to work properly with handcent. It will open handcent upon unlocking to messaging but the number of new messages does not go away until opening the stock messaging app.
    -I really like how the lockscreen glows green when charging

    Very tempted, but I think I'll hold off until more of the issues get addressed. I'm pretty sure I'd just fly with LauncherPro Plus, but it'd be cool to see what it could do.

    its was nice looking and all but the fact thats its not fully translated yet is annoying, and right now I dont feel like trying to learn how to use is since its almost completely new. I may try it again later when i have more time to fully test it.

    So it actually enabled the FM antenna??? And it's totally functional? Wow, that's got to be the first ROM to do that if it's true. I guess I'll give it another shot.

    Here's a quick port of Manup's MIUI Galaxy theme (beta). This also installs the MIUI original Mms app. Includes the keyboard backlight fix provided by thebowers. This is still very early but it does look very nice already.

    Download: MIUI_Galaxy_Beta.zip

    This does look fun. I wonder where this will go...

    I added a poll to this thread. If you flash it please share your thoughts. I don't know that I'll get around to flashing this but I for one am curious about what people think of it.

    So far this ROM is one of the smoothest ones that I have encountered. I have everything working on it except for the new Google Search and Voice Search (won't update for some reason). I installed it over UD8, wiped the Contacts Storage & Google Services Framework to get the dialer to work. Really like the fact that you can have as many screens as you want. I think that I will be keeping this one for quite a while. I am getting ready to try the Galaxy theme posted above.

    well after a reboot of the system the wallpapers were changing but I got a google apps process that kept force closing every minute or so, so I ended up restoring my nandroid backup to Liquid Frozen Yogurt that I had. I may give this another shot in the future once it gets fully ported as I did like the functionality and looks.

    I still can't get the Market to restore my apps. I've never been a TiBa user before. I'll give it a shot flashing over UD8 without wiping and see what happens!
    Also, why is it still using the CM boot animation and RM thinks it's CM6? Anyone know about that?

    Edit: Wow, that was a horrible idea! Couldn't get past all the FC's. Well, perhaps I'll give TiBa a try and try again with wiping.

    How do you wipe the contacts storage and google services framework for the dialer fix?

    I went back to BB5 last night but want to give this another go with the galaxy theme. The stock launcher was a little sluggish but using launcher pro it's probably smoother/faster than BB5. It has some cool battery saving options, control bar in the notification panel, nice icons, and I love the lockscreen. I hope this dev continues working on this ROM, it's promising.

    Also, does anything know the name of that chinese labeled app and what it does? It didn't seem to do anything when clicking on anything so I wanted to delete it but couldn't find it using root explorer.

    1. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All Tab

    2. Find Contacts Storage and select Clear Data

    3. Find Google Services Framework and select Clear Data

    See if that works, worked for most people that I have talked to.

    Did you wipe data/cache when installing the ROM or just installed over an existing ROM? Also, do I have to export my contacts to SD or anything?

    Would be awesome to see how other devs might incorporate some of the ideas from this rom into theirs. While not a fan of iphone looks (because lets face it, i didnt buy an iphone) this rom seems so peculiar that I just might have to give it a try.

    No, I did not wipe data/cache. I installed over UD8 through ROM Manager. I exported nothing, just installed then wiped contacts and google framework.

    I installed this directly over BB.5 earlier today. Was getting a lot of force closes, but as Caveman said, just going into the apps manager and clearing the data/cache of some key apps (contact storage, market, and google framework) got it working fine.

    The only issue I have now, and I haven't seen anyone else with the same, is that i can't seem to change the contact pictures for my contacts. When i open a picture and click "set as contact" it spins for a while then force closes on me. not sure why.

    Also, using the stock launcher WHICH IS AWESOME you can't add shortcuts. I like to have shortcuts for only a few contacts.

    Oh well, learning to live....

    I didn't really care for this ROM... some great ideas are incorporated, but I don't have an iPhone for a reason and this ROM tries too hard to be like an iPhone. Going back to BB 0.5

    Alright.

    SO. I restore my UD 8 backup and install MiUI on top of it without wiping. After loading it up I ran fix permissions, and cleared the data from contact storage and google framework and that has fixed the forcecloses.

    The other issues (verizon wireless not displayed, keyboard not lighting up) theres a zip update on droidforums to flash. Also, a working version of the stock texting app is available on Zen's dev section.

    Just finished flashing manups galaxy s that was ported for MiUI also.

    It's a work in progress to work out of the box, but if you take the time to work out the kinks the ROM is incredible. The lockscreen is ridiculous, phone app is insane, text app is awesome. Notification pulldown is awesome. The battery saving options are great and the battery display options are slick.

    The stock launcher is a little slow for my tastes and it's a hassle to add shortcuts/widgets so I am using ADWLauncher that's included and it FLIES. This ROM is FAST.

    I can't wait/hope this ROM gets further development or other devs borrow some features. (LOCKSCREEN, HINT HINT)
