    NOTE: This is NOT my ROM. This is n_I_x' port of MIUI's ROM over on XDA. I felt that this ROM is just so awesome that it deserves a thread here to follow its progress and bring more attention to it.

    All credit goes to the original creators of the ROM, MIUI.

    Current version: 0.9.30.1

    Instructions: Root and do a Nandroid backup (of course)

    1st) Flash Radio.img
    Froyo Radio.img: REQUIRED
    2.15.00.09.01

    2nd) Flash hboot 0.92
    hboot 0.92: RECOMMENDED
    PB31IMG.zip

    3rd) Download ROM. Clear Cache and Data, then install ROM.
    Version 0.9.30.1

    4th) Download and flash fixes (You can download all and flash back to back)
    Force close in Settings
    Camera crash on 720P

    Installed Apps:
    Google Apps
    Additional ringtones

    Features:
    Working Bluetooth calls (Streaming audio doesn't work)
    Working Wifi Tether
    Menu+Vol Down for screen shot (Saved to SD/MIUI)
    Deleting an icon from stock launcher uninstalls the program
    3 power bar options (Including an across-the-top version like from WinMo)
    Apps2SD
    720P Recording does work.

    Issues:
    Internal storage (EMMC) does not mount correctly
    Camera .apk does not allow 8MP. 3rd party camera apps do.
    Bluetooth cannot stream audio
    Market is not showing Verizon
    Launcher FC's on initial boot and every reboot
    Very, very few Chinese options still present.


    Semi-Issue: Stock apps cannot be removed from the home screen on the stock launcher (since this is the same as uninstalling them). You can move them to other screens, or use adb rm or mv to get rid of the ones you don't want. (I'll post a list of the adb commands later).

    For those that want the Original MIUI messaging (with some Chinese present), xVenom89 has provided a link to it here. Install using adb push

    I'm sure the MIUI developers would take issue with the assertion that ID created this ROM. The launcher and ROM are both MIUI creations, and ID gave us a better-functioning port.

    Not minimizing his efforts, but he didn't develop this.

    Also, I've yet to see confirmation that 720p recording works on the DInc.

    I may have missed it, I've read too many posts on this ROM over at XDA, but is this deodexed? Looking forward to trying it out this weekend when I have some time.

    You're right. While ID did put in the CDMA framework, MIUI are the actual creators of this ROM. I'll update the OP. :)

    i just read your post and was wondering myself, and then looked at the link i just posted up, and the title of the thread "[ROM] MIUI 0.9.24 | Stock | Deodexed | No Translations" answers that question haha

    Thanks JWorth, this is already step 4 in the OP. :)

    You can see how everything was thrown everywhere, hence why I made this thread, to put it all in 1 place for everyone. :D

    this is very interesting - it will take some getting used to no app drawer though

    currently running through restoring everything via Titanium

    Yeah, I threw LauncherPro and HomeSwitcher on there. I use LP for day-to-day, but when I want to show off I switch to the stock "Launcher," lol.. This is truly the love/hate child of iOS and Android.

    yeah - I have launcher pro plus just have to figure out how to setup everything

    its seems visually more polished than the stock OS -but you're right - it's like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates got married in New Hampshire and adopted a Chinese baby and raised it themselves in a hut in the Amazon forest

    Let me know how the Titanium restore goes, and if any of your apps FC after doing the restore. I can't get my gameloft games to run, except Asphalt.. hmm..

    Yep, this is De-Odexed as well. This ROM just has the CDMA framework put in. There's a newer release on XDA that is Odexed, although this one seems really good and unless the new version has BT working, I'm going to keep trying to fix this one (EMMC and get 8MP enabled).

    Did you follow through with step 4? There should be almost no Chinese left.

    Ah, I had forgotten about that. Stock installed apps can only be uninstalled with adb mv or rm. Removing them from the stock launcher is the same as uninstalling, and they put them into the /system/app directory instead of the normal app install directory (I can try to change that, too) so you have to use adb to remove them. :(

    You can still move them to other screens though where they're more out of the way.

    I use LP, so it's not a big deal to me.
