    This weeks recommended updates:

    1. New automatic call recording function
    You can select multiple numbers to automatically record when making / receieving calls

    2. New Lock screen misuse prevention mode
    If you have your phone in your trouser pocket, often you may find your phone functions due to not being locked. The proximity sensor will judge any misuse based on distance / covering of sensor. The aim is to prevent phone misuse when loose in pocket.

    3. MIUI Video player updates
    Added new video decoder version to improve the range of supported video formats and in addition improve playback smoothness. Also added this week, screenshot capture function, full-screen playback, orientation lock (rotate). Due to hardware limitations at present the MI-ONE will receieve the update first this week, closely followed by other devices.

    Other:
    • i.xiaomi.com support to retrieve phone functions, track and control of your MIUI phone system (Possibly China only)
    • i.xiaomi.com support to delete, re-upload / download photos
    • Another new Free MiHome theme coming this week as well

    Full changes will be posted on Friday as normal.

    WhatsApp is their fault. Not ours. Andy proved it.

    on your phone, open Phone app.

    Enter:

    *#*#284#*#*

    This will generate a debug log, /sdcard/MIUI/debug_logs/

    the file will end in .log

    Please upload this for me.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Please let MIUI know that the settings menu in the SGS III (specific to the device) contains functions that do NOT WORK: Smart Stay and Samsung Lockscreen.

    It would be awesome if they did, but they don't. Tested on last 2 roms.

    Thanks.

    I am now using MIUI 2.8.31 on my Huawei honor, just found out below bugs:
    1. Bluetooth not working.
    2. Orange border found in some place on screen.
    3. When battery drains out and goes off, then plug to charger, then it boots to recovery.
    4. Please free up more memory, got only average 90MB.
    5. Sync not functioning.

    Thanks!!!! Hope this include the next update.

    No it's not all whatsapp faults. Because not only Whatsapp have that problem. Even GTD task app can't select notification sound. And I've never this problem on other JB ROM (tried AOKP, CM10, Codename, Paranoid, and other AOSP based ROM). It must be the MIUI ringtone picker code faulty that makes the notification picker open Themes instead of media picker.. Hope my feedback is clear enough.. Thanks

    I can confirm that Samsung Lockscreen *does* work, including the ripple effect. A reboot is required after selecting the option. It has been confirmed by others over at xda as well. I haven't tested Smart Stay.

    Shit. I did reboot, twice, and nothing. OK, back to test it.
    Smart Stay is another thing. Will try different time outs and light settings.
    Will scratch this from the bugs list if I can confirm it too. Thanks.

    Smart Stay isn't working at night since there is not much to "see" via the hardware camera. I mean the commercial where the phone "waits" till you fall asleep is only a theory, not reality... anyway, personally I think this is useless and only drains more battery out of your device.

    Sometimes a new base means taking 10 steps back. Sometimes the bugs are with how the overlay of MIUI works. So if you change a base there could be new errors.

    Ibotpeaches, please at least react to me how can I solve this or let me know if there's a chance of this fix from miui devs or from miui android. I am very sure it's miui problem because I've been using whatsapp for a year and flashed every ROM from xda-devs and never have this issue..

    Actually WhatsApp uses a structure that will work fine on other ROMs due to the fact they don't have an advance theme manager, but due to the fact they use the "all" attribute instead of "notification" it triggers as a theme instead of a notification and doesn't allow the change.

    So this means it will always remain like this in miui rom? every 3rd party app that made like whatsapp won't work in miui due to miui's theme engine, and will always remain unsolvable? So, can u provide me a tutorial to modify the apps that can't work? because not only whatsapp, but my GTD is also have this problem. Thanks
