    I tried to download google maps over my data plan earlier via gapps (android Market place) while I was away from home and the phone requested that I connect via wifi in order to download this app.

    I have a fairly decent data plan and want to get my moneys worth so I don't want any restrictions. This is why I won't buy an iPhone so if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can disable this so that I can download what I please on this rom I would love to continue to use it I love all of the options but this is a huge deal breaker for me.

    This issue was resolved.

    the issue was caused by the downloader app built into MiUi.

    Disabling the "Download only using WLAN" option.
     
  2. sorry, where do you see limitations?

    You mean in the Downloads app? Toggle Download via Data.

    I have no restrictions on what I download. Are you sure you had good signal strength? Did you check to make sure your mobile network settings were good? For those I have to manually re-enter mine each time I flash a new version.

    When I download an app of a certain size the message goes something like this. Wifi required for this download.

    It was only a 6 meg app. Its happened a couple of times with the most recent stable for the nexus s.

    I have been running Cyanogenmod 7 and also tried DevNull rom I like devnull for its speed and battery efficiency, but MiUi seems to be just as fast as DevNull which is saying alot. Seeing as its basically a stripped down android. My point in mentioning this is that in neither stock CM7 or even DevNull have I had this issue.

    I've scoured the settings as much as I could think to from top to bottom but the MiUi interface is very foreign to what I'm used to so I could be missing something.

    Open "Downloads" (is a default system app). Make sure that "Download using wifi" is Off.

    Thank you I will try addressing this issue now with this new information.

    thanks @fusingblackrose and @Cezar I will look into things now. I've reflashed my phone between roms about 7 times over the last 48 hours trying to find a best fit. I hope to settle with MiUi Cyanogen is a very good implementation of stock android with all of the tweaks required to make things as powerful as the blackvberry but I like the fine tuned additions and much better User Interface from MiUi.
