Interesting issue:

Will not skip songs in Ubermusic.

In fact, if you long press with Ubermusic running and the screen off, it plays music through the default Music App, over the Ubermusic one, mingling the sounds of the two.

Just something I've noticed. I know you don't have anything to to with Ubermusic, so I don't really expect a fix on this one.

Do you have Ubermusic set as your default music player? The MOD will only work with the default..

FYI Andy -
I'm on an HTC Desire GSM running Miui-XJ D2EXT 1.7.29.
When I updated Miui from 1.7.8 to 1.7.29 I was so impatient to have this mod back that I loaded the 1.7.22 version to see if it would work. It did but messed with some lock screens. I found a lock screen that worked and stuck with that lock screen until I spotted you had uploaded a 1.7.29 version. I've just flashed that over the top and it is now playing nicely with any lock screen I choose. The bad news is the camera button doesn't pause music. (But doesn't produce any unwanted side effects either.)

Absolutely love this mod so I've sent you a beer.

Sorry if this is explained elsewhere, can you pls confirm that if want to upgrade from the 1.7.22 version of this mod to 1.7.29 do I just flash over the top? (I installed the 1.7.22 version on Miui 1.7.29 - yes I am an impatient sod - and it works but messes with some lock screens. Doesn't mess with XJs 4-way lock screens so I have been using one of those .)

And last but not least - great work Andy, this is one of the best mods I've applied. I'll be buying you a beer.

Hi. Yep, just flash the lastest version over the top.
Installing 1.7.29 would have removed this MOD so you just need to flash again to re-apply it.

Glad you like the MOD and cheers for the beer!!!!

just installed MIUI for droid x v1.7.22. im hoping this works without having to upgrade to 1.7.29 as it was just ported and some have reported bugs.

anywho, i was wondering if there is any way you can allow a bluetooth device to change tracks? stock, cm7, and other ROMS have always allowed my BT head unit and BT headset to skip tracks.

Hi. If other ROMS have that functionality there's no reason it couldn't be implemented in MIUI as well. Again though (as with my failed attempt to add camera key support) I have the issue that I don't have a BT headset to test with. Sounds like a nice feature to have, so I'll ask around, one of my friends might be prepared to loan me one for testing with. ..

PS. I still have a 1.7.22 version available if you need it...

Welp, I assume your fix would work for me, but MIUI does not see Ubermusic as an option to become the default player. It's not in the list to be a default player. Weird.

EDIT: Scratch that. A reinstall of Ubermusic shows it in the list and the mod now works. Thanks!
