    Framework said he would try to redo the update today.

    Oh cool. Maybe I'll give it a try again. I like MIUI but the bugs are really annoying me.

    I modified the transparent Galaxy S lockscreen to open Gmail and not show the SMS unread count, since I rarely text and often email.

    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a built-in way to display the Gmail unread count on the icon - there is no built-in system counter that you can call. But some of you might find it useful, so I've attached the modified file. Rename .zip to .mtz and move it to /sdcard/miui/themes.

    Thanks, I need to get to my emails more than my text messages as well. This is great.

    I admit these lock screens look nice, but I miss the gesture unlocks of CM7 a little bit. I know it can't be done, but I would love a lock screen like this where it had 5 of 6 puzzle pieces that you could assign what apps would open with them.

    I don't know that it couldn't be done. The manifest.xml file contains definitions for the location of the puzzle pieces, seems to me like you could add as many as you want. I might play with this a bit this weekend.

    I updated the transparent Gmail mod I made above. I moved the unlocker piece a little because it looks better with my wallpaper, and made it have a Gmail icon instead of the SMS icon.

    Same deal, rename as .mtz and move it to /sdcard/miui/themes.

    Kev, if you want more puzzle pieces, it actually looks fairly straight forward. Open that .zip/.mtz file and extract out /lockscreen/advance/manifest.xml. You'll see that each unlock piece has its own section, and each one references all of the other unlock pieces as well. So if you add one, you'll have to modify all the sections just a little.

    I may mess with this later but I'm not really in the business of custom lockscreens. If you tell me which pieces you want, I might experiment with those particular options which could give you something functional.

    Same problem here with my car BT. I loved MIUI, but this problem made me go to CM7. No BT problems with CM7. :cool:

    Wow... I love Miui... it is my daily driver and is amazing... I never thought I would find a ROM that I would stick on... but I have now... even with the new update... I'm not having any of the problems that anyone else is having... I've been working a lot on my house lately and haven't had time for android... I have 1 more month till the re-appraisal and will only have a little pressure washing / grass cutting / clearing of brush (will be done tomorrow). And then next weekend will be putting the ceiling in the 1 room in the basement and the flooring in that room too (all by me) and maybe some paint, not sure and then the basement will be completed... and my friends thats how you pay 115,000 for a 3808 sq ft 8 year old house and turn it into 243,000 (replacement value on our homeowners insurance) in less than a month (foreclosure + me working on it ftw) (also in georgia this was a steal but needed some work, which I was able to do)

    P.S. I'm drunk now and felt like saying that all above only to explain that I love Miui ROM and won't have a ton of time for android for the next few weeks. Then I'll be back in the swing of it...

    I initiallly had reboot problems that some were experiencing, but a fresh new install of the ROM fixed that. MIUI has been solid. Love it.

    Ok, so I have this rom, but since ever having this rom and downloading facebook sometimes,little messages will pop up and say stuff....Like for instance last night I was talking to a friend on what she posted about my status and when I replied, right underneath my comment was a comment that said "Your number wrong"...Does anyone know why or how this can be stopped...Its really irritating.

    Does anyone else have trouble with the back button when trying to exit out of an app? I have to hit mine sometimes three times before it responds. Also when I drag an app down to the dock then reboot the icons are rearranged. Any fix for this?
  16. tom108

    tom108 Android Expert

    there is a setting to longpress and exit and app.
    also the icon issue is widespread. Framework is working on compiling a new release to fix most/all the pending issues with .29, until then i went back to .22

    Captian, what launcher are you running? I think I only saw this problem come up when I put go launcher on.
  20. binary visions

    binary visions Android Expert

    Hitting the button multiple times isn't a problem with the longpress-to-kill setting. It's a known problem with CM7 as well as this ROM, maybe with all 2nd-init ROMs, I'm not sure.

    The hard buttons occasionally require multiple presses to work correctly. Seems to be somewhat arbitrary on when this happens, but it's not just you.

    umm I've not had that issue with Cm7 on any device I had it on.
  22. binary visions

    binary visions Android Expert

    I'm very happy for you.

    It's a fairly widespread and documented problem, with observed output in the Logcat when it occurs.

    All I know is I use it alot on my ascend and DX. Mainly on the DX when checking if torch is fixed yet w/o flashing the fix and it works flawlessly every time,. So I dunno lol
  24. binary visions

    binary visions Android Expert

    It's only a problem with the DX as far as I know - quite possibly the D2 as well, but I'm not a D2 user.

    Anecdotal experience is all well and good, but you not having problems with it doesn't invalidate the others that do or the objective evidence provided by the logcat that it happens.

    Well as I have learned with the Ascend all phones are not created equal lol. I thought that saying mainly applied to the ascend since its a cheap pos, but I guess it can apply to all phones.
