    if you're on CM7, there's no need to SBf is there? Can't you just wipe and install from CM7?

    I believe so as long as your on a Froyo kernel. Im getting some screen shots goin now, it installed flawlessly once I sbf'd back to Froyo. Oh all the settings to go thru. I love this stuff. I sent cvpcs and the dev team some love for it. This is good work.

    And here we are, my new home screen. MIUI on the X! Soon to be customized to the max. First things first, back-up.

    Yup no sbf needed as CyanogenMod kernel is froyo. Could go back and forth if you want. I may play with this one day. Besides the graphics any neat stuff with it?

    Depends on what YOU consider neat cuz its full of neat stuff IMO lol. It is a bit different in function. I remember I went from CM7 to this on my Dinc and it took some getting used to. And yes stock it does look like an iphone but with the HUGE customization options for our devices, that wont last long. For example..http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1134657. I'm not sure how much has been written over for the X yet but I am keeping track best I can. Either way, there's enough customization options in the ROM itself now you wont have to worry yet. Oh and it also has 1% increments as a stock option for the battery. I know we all love that, ROM preference irrelevant.

    Not having an app drawer may seem confusing for a bit also.

    The only thing that isnt working for me so far is boot anims. Whether I chose one individually or as part of the theming packages, I still get the "stock" spinning Earth MIUI logo.

    Oh and also for anyone that is thinking of trying it, you will find alot of your choices in the Chinese language. This was a ROM developed by Chinese developers, then ported and designed in other languages by devs who fell in love with the OG Chinese version. Their download page consists of all the language versions available, yet even dating back to last year, we couldnt figure out why the US version still had so much Chinese language in it. Maybe they didnt have a FT translator,lol but still give it a whirl, its fun and smooth...here's some educational reading on it. http://en.miui.com/

    And if you find their locations within the ROM please share, I havent used this in over a year and don't remember where they are. There is a Droid X forum on MIUI but it is minuscule in size compared to us so it isnt any help yet. Were gona have to do as much as we can here. This page..http://www.miui.us/ may also hold some useful info. MIUI is a ROM that requires you to bookmark alot of pages to keep up with it.

    Edit..backup is in the main Tools app. You can do it locally or, join MIUI online and backup online.

    Recovery Reboot: Click menu in "System Update" to reboot and enter recovery.

    Screen Shotpress "Menu" key and "Volume Down" key at the samee time to print a screen. The printed image is saved in the directory of MIUI in the sd card.

    Gotcha, yes I have that in my bookmark pool. I sent the error report in so maybe they will check on it. Torch also doesn't work it seems(hold home while screen is locked). It will appear on screen but the light doesnt activate and you cant tap on/off Torch.

    Ok, so I've been checking this one out for a bit and it looks very tempting. I'd much rather have CM7, but this just seems to be so much more polished.

    One question though, does the 8MP camera and 720p video work on this? and are there any other problems with the rom? Seems like everything works fine though from what I've read, especially with the new market app fix that just came out.

    So what I've gathered after reading a ton of threads is that we do have 8MP picture-taking (but no widescreen) and we do not have 720p video (only up to 480p). Also, I have heard that we can't play back prerecorded 720p vids. Definitely a bummer, but I think I still might make the change since everything else looks great.

    Same here. Is this a bug?

    It could be two things. It could be a "bug" or it could be just some of them do not work on the X, which Im not sure would be considered a bug, maybe cuz its been ported to the X. I am currently using the Ash Bolt theme which every thing but the boot anim works. All the files are there but it still loads the default MIUI boot screen. I also tried a couple of the Chinese character-ed themes and the same result. Could be I just havent picked one from the humongous list that actually works.

    I started running Quadrants just now. I dont know exactly why, if someone cares to explain that would be awesome, the numbers kept going up each time I ran one. Im not doing anything to the phone to make it do that. I started off with a 2136 and after the 5th...

    I think the more times you run Quadrant it shows it a lil faster each time .On my post above that was my second run of quadrant.
    Since the update patch tho my stock camera stopped working ,lol it worked before flashing the patch .I have vignette tho so it not a big deal. They added a torch button too
