    This weeks recommended updates:

    1. Support for new MIUI Desktop launcher themes

    This weeks update will add support for desktop launcher theme support, see video here:



    The new system will require theme developers to revise the new format and it will bring more room for some amazing theme options.

    2. New version of MIUI video player

    New and redesigned MIUI video player, Redesigned every detail of the player interface to bring a better user experience.

    3. File Explorer support to Compress / Decompress zip files directly from the application

    Further enhanced the File Explorer to allow unzip and zip of files, no other File Manager app available does this currently.

    Happy 2nd Birthday to MIUI. Full changelog will be published tomorrow as normal.

    Don't you think it would be better to fix real problems on your birthday instead of making useless new functions to a desktop no one uses?
    Here are a few major bugs I'm warring you for weeks now:
    - Settings -> About phone -> Status -> Crash
    - Settings -> Mobile Networks -> Network operators -> Crash

    The list of updates is just a list of new features. Not bug fixes.

    Also, never lose sight of the fact that the team behind MIUI don't owe you a single thing.

    good for you, I don't because it looks like an iPhone and is very limited in functionality as an iPhone as well (everything is on home-screens)... try go launcher, it even has gestures

    I'm not the only one who was complaining and experiencing this bugs?!
    They don't owe anything to anyone, but this were serious bugs that potentially caused the lose of user(fans). I myself would be going to another ROM tomorrow.

    Yep, there is still the bug with sms notification on lockscreen. It is displayed only you receive two sms messages, then the counter displays you have only one message. I would say it is some bug in counter or some nad condition. Hope guys fix it soon ;-) Then I can finally use this rom instead of cMIUI :) Maybe home button lag will be a bit annoying but I can live with that :)

    I've tried most launchers on the market, including Go. The MIUI launcher is the one I use. Mine looks nothing like iphone btw.

    O my god, I thought this was a concept, not a feature tomorrow.
    Maybe they got an even bigger surprise for next week with jelly beans. :D
