    Will this ROM be updated every Friday like GSM MIUI

    -I will try my best every week to port to the NS4G. I don't consider myself an Android Developer, I just love MIUI. But if you follow the thread you'll see, I don't act like I know everything and since this is a community I often ask for help/advice from everyone

    Will this build support WIMAX (4G)

    -No

    My gallery/music app is not showing all media

    - I included "Re-Scan Media" app, just open it and let it do it's thing

    I get a reboot if I try to connect my phone as USB Storage

    -If you can, try and run ddms and get the log. After the reboot, try and re connect again, should work

    My GPS is not working

    -Open up GPS Status, press Menu hard button, open "Tools">Manage aGPS Status>Download

    -If the above does not work, try doing the Compass Calibration

    I get white on white text when signing into Google

    -This is a known issue on many (if not all) MIUI ICS ROM's. Being worked on

    I will try miui when i can flash a single rom that has everything working. Too many complete roms out there to bother with flashing multiple zips to get everything working.

    There is only one zip to flash. He provided a main link to the ROM, then a backup mirror site incase that normal one goes down. It comes prepacked with Matr1x kernel and offered a second optional kernel to flash.

    Out of those 4 things the only thing that I can see that wouldn't be fixed is Wimax as fergie stated. As the case with most ports from other devices over to the NS4G.

    Its definitely worth a test drive. I'm going to load it up shortly, already have it downloaded. Many friends and users have always commented on how smooth and cool MIUI is.. Time for me to take a look !

    For me no Wimax sorry is a deal breaker. I'm not in an area that i can rely on Wifi. No Wimax = worthless for me. Correct me if I'm wrong, without Wimax, there is no data except for wifi. Or is it just no 4g data? Either way, it's a deal breaker as I use both 3g and 4g pretty equally.

    You will still have 3g and wifi.. 3g will do the same as anything you do on 4g, just at a slower speed.... Only option you would loose is with 4g you can surf the web/make a phone call at the same time....

    Lol... If your lived where i do, you would understand. The best 3g i can expect living where i do, is almost always under 100 kbs. My 4g is only about 1mbs. So if i am on the web it is with 4g or wifi. The only time I'm on 3g is when I'm not doing anything. For me 3g is for getting email only when not actively using the phone. It's been like this for over 6 months. So no wimax is useless for me.

    Running MIUI and so far its pretty cool... Clean, smooth.. Something different from the normal that we are used to here.... Think I will hang out for awhile to enjoy some more MIUI, not only for me but to expand my horizons on troubleshooting MIUI in the future since I had no previous experience.

    Thanks fergie.

    wifi wouldn't turn on for me. I did a complete factory reset, wipe, and then flashed. Was there anything I missed?

    I've restored to v43, so I could get back on here. Any help would be great, it seems like a great ROM!

    I will say that this ROM rocks for a first version. Not quite a dd yet, but it will make a great one when it's got a couple things worked out.

    Great work Fergie.

    Very cool to see this! I was always curious about miui- so much so that I hope their phones are for sale one day stateside- as I could see a lot of fruit fans leaving for it. I'm very curious about how they approach their sensibilities with ICS...

    Must fight urge to flash twice in a single day...

    Just wanted to say thank you to Paul and Jerry Hildenbrand for the article that was posted!


    Second, I've spent the last several hours trying to
    #1- Port latest MIUI (12-30) to the NS4G
    #2- Fix download issue for current version

    In regards to #1, I actually got somewhere. Latest update will boot but no signal/3G and a bunch of FC's. Why? MIUI has updated major components of the ROM with ICS, including MIUI's own framework (framework-miui-res.apk) as well as many other components. So anyway in regards to the latest update, framework.jar has been modified significantly, most importantly the needed files for CDMA devices to work properly. So after hours of testing and debugging I narrowed it down and am currently working on a fix, albeit temporary, to get that version up and running..But in the meantime..

    #2- The download issue is caused by, once again, components of MIUI's updated framework. Once again I tested and found the problem. I suspect I could get this taken care of after the New Year so I can figure out how to solve it. Well, not "I". I'm fortunate to know a lot of people more smarter than me when it comes to Android. Brainmaster, ryanlasalle, stiffspliff, and a lot more have been helping me along the way


    So for now, enjoy this build. I updated post #2 with some fixes, extra ICS apps and a mod
    -GPS fixed
    -ICS Youtube, Google Search, GenieWidget
    -Calendar Sync should be fixed
    -0-100% battery mod

    Enjoy guys,have a good Holiday!

    Did you flash the kernel I referred to in the OP? There's a link to it at the bottom of the post.
