Mod Type:: ROM

Difficulty:: Easy

Mod Base:: MIUI

Mod Status:: Kang

Apply In:: CWM Recovery

Carrier:: Verizon

Optional:: Overclocked

Requires Root:: Yes

Optional:: Custom Settings

Android Version:: 4.0.4 (ICS)

Source::
MiKangyUI v4:
This is a rom based off the 2.6.29 port of MIUI v4 done by BeansTown106

All of Beans' thank yous plus thanks to BeansTown106, 1loudsvt, and Eiht

I deleted all the init scripts that were in the rom and replaced them with my own.
build.prop was totally rewritten
OVERCLOCKED: 300-600-900-1200, 22-36-48-68, ondemand
Jellybean 4.2 keboard added
Gapps included(no need to flash seperately)
GoogleNow Online version added
Seeder app is included. To enable it for less lag on scrolling open the app, select start on boot, and click on.

Known Bugs:
Themes is tempermental at best. Sometimes opens, sometimes acts like it wants to work, sometimes just locks up and freezes.
--workaround for themes: Download a theme from one of the many forums. Place the mtz(theme file) on your sdcard in the /MIUI/theme directory. Navigate on the device to this directory and click to open the desired theme. Click apply. Theme will successfully apply.
--workaround for wallpaper and lockscreen wallpaper: Go to settings, go to display, go to wallpaper, select which one you want, pick one of the included or hit others and navigate to the wallpaper via your choices.
Probably every other ICS related bug.

Download link:
1/30/13 : http://d-h.st/V1y

Old Versions:
1/14/13 : http://d-h.st/HGw

Instructions:
download
verify checksums
boot to your desired recovery
make a nandroid - don't complain to me if you didn't.
wipe cache/data/system
install from sd
choose file
install
reboot

If you don't like being overclocked I encourage you to set it at what you want on the first boot via bootmenu.

**Don't whine about battery. It's not bad, but it's not a 3 day juice nazi. I'm in this for good performance, not a battery that last a month. There are things you can do to save battery...search for them.

1/30/13 changes:
Updated seeder app
fixed init.d tweaks
added some lines to build.prop from latest kangs

1/11/13 changes:
started over with what I was told was a working 2.6.29b2 version from dx. Only removed extra wallpapers and junk. Left all the chinese apps no one uses in case it effected things. left all media. Removed regular google search. Added GoogleNow Online version. Made a kickass updater script that hopefully makes someone yank their battery out in fear their phone is going to hack the planet and steal their grandma's purse.
-If themes still don't work directly it is going to be listed as a bug because I want to move onto another Kang. Chasing my tail on a rom I don't care for is not pleasant. I posted a work around that does work for theming even with a fouled up thememanager in case the app doesn't work correctly.
-Besides the theme issue I think people will find the rom runs pretty well.

1/10/13 changes:
apks pulled from DX's 2.6.29b2 that I was told themes were working fine in. To be sure nothing got fouled up in the process I also took the framework files.

1/9/13 changes:
added file explorer, email, and exchange back
added seeder. toggle it inside the app to reduce lag
added 2.6.8's "stable" thememanager.apk post if themes still have issues.

Nice, thanks! What's the status of the camera/camcorder & HWA in this ROM?

camera works. camcorder doesn't just like all other ics I've ran. HWA seems to be working according to my 1100 3d benchmarks.

New upload shortly. Added back in file manager, email, and exchange. Also swapped in the 2.6.8 theme manager in hopes it would correct some issues with themes. And put in the seeder apk. If you want to use seeder, just open the app and hit on. I've noticed a reduction in lag while scrolling with it enabled.

1/10/13 is up. Haven't tested yet. This one I based off of the 2.6.29b2 rom that I was asured themes worked fine on. So I copied it all over. And hopefully it will workout. If not I will keep attempting new ones.

If you dirty flash and it's still not working it may be because dirty flashing will not overwrite the /data/system/theme folder. That folder is created by thememanager. So I would suggest backing up apps and app data and flashing clean.

** themes do work in past revisions. Just not nicely. If you download a mtz theme file and click on it inside of your file explorer it will pull up themes and you can apply that theme no problem. I'm just hoping to be able to have a full functioning themes app.

Beans put this in his old MIUI thread, so I'm guessing it'll work for yours as well:

Video Camera - stock camcorder doesnt work but lgcamera from market works for recording video if set to low

How's the battery life? That has been my one major issue with V4 thus far.
