just want to know if kernels at xda (franco, eternity etc) can be flashed to miui 4
i have been running franco without problems, just switching to Faux kernel as i speak. as this is still based on HTC sources all the kernels should be fine, as long as you repack the boot.img
only thing to point out is that after changing kernel, after each reboot you will get a notification saying that you need a kernel upgrade, i just ignore this as it runs better on other kernels
I can confirm to you: Kernel franco work fine with MIUI v4:
Can this be confirmed?
There is a boolean in the Updater.apk for the HTC One X that always seems to think it needs an update. If thats what your wondering.
im not sure if that is relevent mate, on built in kernel you dont get the prompt. as soon as you change kernel you get it once every reboot
Here is your confirmation
but again, you just clear the notification then it doesnt come back until a reboot
If I make another Updater.apk (system app).
Do you know how to push/remove system apps?
adb shell rm /system/app/Updater.apk
adb push Updater.apk /system/app/
Thanks for testing.
This Updater is the HTC One X ONLY.
will give it a try now
EDIT: that worked a charm, thanks Peaches
so what exactly does this updater do or do differently from the original updater?
also when i downloaded it and tried to install it i was asked "this is as system application, do you still want to replace it?"
-i pressed "ok"
-then i pressed "install" on the screen where it says what your allowing the app to do
-then instead of installing it says "application not installed" with only the option to press "done"
any help with this would be greatly appreciated
Its a system apk, so you need to install it differently. Which alex24 showed how a few posts above.
sorry bit new to this but do those commands be entered into a terminal emulator app or can i plug my phone into my linux computer and use the terminal or do you know of any tutorials where i could see how this is done?
Its adb. So you use download the Android SDK here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html
Since adb won't be in your path. You will have to go to the directory that it installs it to. Then you will be able to run the commands listed above. Make sure your phone has "adb enabled" under Settings -> Developer
Brilliant! thanks for the info and help in this thread!
Any news on when MIUI will update the base ROM to the newest version with the screen flicker fix? I recon that MIUI, with the newer base ROM, combined with the latest franco kernel (for all the latest nVidia Tegra3 power management updates) would truely rock!
In fact, if I wasn't so damned busy with work, that is exactly the sort of project that might encourage me to learn to cook up a ROM myself..!
Where does one even find a kitchen/tutorial for building a custom MIUI ROM?
im still looking for a repacked franco kernel to use in this miui release....ive noticed some are using francos kernel already..can we just flashboot it immediately without repacking for miui? i just need to confirm. thanks.
Yes, both franco's and faux's kernels work fine out of the box.
But do a backup in case! I flashed both of those kernels yesterday, and after franco's r7 it didn't boot - system_server was consuming 100% CPU with no apparent error. It may be caused by a bug in the kernel causing data corruption (I ended up restoring) or a coincidence...
do we install francos kernel by just putting it on our sd card, booting into recovery and installing the zip or do we have to flash the boot.img for the kernel first and then install through recovery?
After you flashed the new kernel did you erase cache?

franco r7 was pulled due to a bug. try 8.
I've been using the eternity project kernels with no issues, no repack just their img file and kernel modules and they work great.
i've tried both faux and franco over the weekend[orig release since i don't know how to repack] on miui 2.6.1.
1) for some reason, faux 004 had random reboots. franco does not. but both causes bootloop when battery is allowed to drain to the point that it shutdowns itself (around 1% battery, not sure if it display correctly the battery stats since its known to display big % when waking up from sleep.,but after few clicks and sync in facebook, fourquare, the battery drops by 20% or something). when charged and switched on., phone goes to bootloop. had to restore backups just to make the HOX useful at all.
2) corecontrol apk does not stick(settings goes to default after reboot, core usage is 4 cores etc)
3) rom toolbox lite min and max cpu settings do hold for sometime but resets to 1500Mhz after rebooting(i haven't discovered its pattern)
i will try eternity and other kernels later. i also noticed that the boot image from this kernel is dated around 2008.
i heard at xda that only tripnravers kernel is linux 3.0 kernel based, i am still looking for that kernel for miui by haven't found any.
i haven't tried eternity kernel since i ALWAYS got error during registration on its site to download the kernel.
i am on 2.6.8 now and i think the 4-8 hour use per charge cycle is back.
i will try faux and franco r9 to compare.
trying eternity now after wresting a BSOD during the batch file boot img sending to device..
there is a red flicker window that appears everytime you launch gtalk(and/or select a user), this is the first time i met this flickering.
rom: miui 2.6.8
kernel: eternity latest
