    YouTube - ‪MIUI ROM 7th closed beta version‬‏
    MIUI for Beginners

    Source: MIUI Official Site

    Already flashed MIUI ROM? OK, pick up your phone now, let’s start our happy journey of MIUI ROM.

    The first step: selecting apps

    Various apps will greatly enrich your cell phone, so firstly let’s select the apps to your taste. Use the Android Market and download what you would like. If you are using a backup app and restoring apps from a previous ROM, only restore the apps and not the data. Otherwise that will create a lot of force close issues.
    [​IMG]

    Tip: How to copy files from the computer to the phone? First connect your phone to your computer via data cable, pull down the notification panel from the top of the phone, click “USB connected”, and then click "Turn on USB storage”.

    After copying, do not forget to select the option of “Turn off USB storage”, otherwise "File Manager” in the phone will not be able to find the sd card, as it is being occupied by the computer.

    Now I have a lot of apps, how to put them in order?

    All apps successfully installed are listed on the desktop, however, they may not be in the order you want, how to put them in order?
    [​IMG]

    Long press an app icon and then you may move it freely. When it is moved to the screen border, the screen will automatically switch to the next screen.

    How to add a screen? Use two fingers to pinch on the desktop to enter screen thumbnail mode. Then you may add or delete screens.

    How to delete an app? Long press the app icon you want to delete, drag it on top of the trash box and click OK to delete it.

    The second step: let's make your phone different.

    A phone without style is nothing remarkable, so let’s make your phone different!
    [​IMG]

    Changing wallpaper: Click Menu button on the desktop, select “Change Wallpaper” to replace the wallpaper. In addition to the existing wallpaper in the phone, thousands of pieces of wallpaper are also available online.
    Changing theme: Themes make great changes to your interface style. Click “Theme Manager” on the desktop to select the theme you like. Also, more online themes are available online.

    Selecting ringtones and more: click “Settings” on the desktop to set call and notification ringtones. In “Personalization” under “Personal” tab, you may find more options.

    The third step: it’s time for some advanced techniques!

    Well, you are no longer a beginner now, so let’s learn some advanced techniques.

    [​IMG]

    Adding widgets on the desktop: press the Menu button on the desktop, select "Edit Mode", and then click the icon on the upper right corner to access the interface of “Add Widgets”. Choose your favorite widget on the top, and then drag it to the screen below.

    Using folders to manage desktop apps: in the interface of “Add Widgets”, drag [Folder] to the desktop. You may drag multiple apps into folders to classify them. After opening the folder, you may click the edit icon in the upper left corner to rename the folder.

    Using toggles panel to improve efficiency: drag the notification panel down from the top, click "Toggles" to go to the toggles panel (It goes to the toggles panel in default of notice.) On the panel are listed the most commonly used toggles, you may click to quickly enable or disable a toggle. Long press on the icon will launch the settings for that icon.

    Guest mode: enable the “Guest Mode” toggle in the panel, and your calls and text messages logs will be hidden, and all installed applications cannot be removed. You may have a try when you need to show your phone to guests or children.

    Importing contacts or binding accounts: you may use some apps to import a batch of contacts, or bind Google account directly in "Settings"> "Personal"> "Accounts & Sync Settings" to sync contacts at any time.
    How to print screens? Press "Menu" key and "Volume Down" key at the same time to print a screen. The printed image is saved in the directory of MIUI in the SD card.

    How to copy files from the computer without using the data cable? In case of a Wi-Fi connection, enter “File Manager” on the desktop, select the tab of "Remote Administration" to start the service, and then you will get an address. Enter the given address on the computer, then you may copy files without using a data cable!

    What's the difference between this and MIUI AU? I just flashed it yesterday and I'm very new to MIUI.

    Looks nice. I may give this a shot in the next few days. Are there any glaring bugs? Alternatives to cyanogen are a good thing. I do like it, but it has never been perfect for me on this phone. :thumbup:

    You guys have a great ROM here and I'm loving it as well as my friends but seriously you guys removed most of the good stuff and added a bunch of...well...junk.

    I got a replacement phone a few days ago and yours was the first ROM I got when I rooted it after it came out of the box. I am really impressed with the new layout and all since I left you guys a few weeks ago however I understand that there is a theme problem and I have been checking online and on ClockWorkMod's app for an update/fix and finally tonight I see a fix for it but everytime I keep trying to download it over 3G/Wifi, it says that the .zip is corrupt.

    Love your ROM but just wish it wasn't so buggy in terms of the theme and was able to get OTAs over the phone. Also it'd be nice to get 4G when possible. I'm not really one to turn it on and use it 24/7 but it's nice to have. Glad that you guys are working on the front camera though, thank you.

    I must say when I first tried this rom it was the uttermost confusing rom I have ever used but you get to using it then you learn it all and will appreciate it. I wish more kernels were made for it though.

    Ive never experienced setting menu lags. Apparently that was fixed in v1.6.3 anyway. I also noticed MIUI by Mark Huk isnt stable at the moment so perhaps you should try XJ MIUI? Ive not encountered any problems on it so far.

    Nope none at all! Mind, I was on Froyo MIUI for few months before switching over to GB MIUI 2 weeks back and I did that on purpose so I didnt experience any issues some folks have especially on earlier versions...

    I avoid custom hboots. Too much hassles in my opinion. Besides, space isnt issue for me so I wouldnt go there to be honest...

    I get a bit of lag when I access the settings for anything so I turned off the animations and now it's fine. It was the fade out effect that was slowing things down.

    I also get the known Go Dialer hot-reboot issue for which there is a workaround.

    I would use MIUI if you didn't have to have all your apps on the home screens... I don't like clutter.

    Same here mate. I hate cluttering my homescreens so I have all my apps in folders plus I dont add apps just for the sake of filling up my internal space. I have around 20 apps and they all relevant to me.
