Ok, say goodbye to xiaomi - you have a Google Nexus device now!!

Well, CM10.2 is nice but that's not all this is about.
I've build this with the aim to have max compatibility with Nexus 4 sources and that really was a success.
I'm using device repository, kernel source and 90% of the proprietaries from Nexus 4.

What does that mean to the Users?
You have maximum stability, security and speed and you'll get the latest Android versions at least as long as Google supports the Nexus 4.

What does that mean to the Developers?
Google did a very good job with the code style of the device. It's clean and easy to understand.
The changes that we need for MI2 are that minimal that we should be able to port any Nexus 4 ROM or kernel within hours.

Messages to xiaomi:
1) IN YOUR FACE!!
2) Your hardware is great but if you want a quality product you should talk with your software developers about their code style.
It's NOT ok to replace drivers with old versions to "fix" them.
And it's also not good to keep tons of old useless stuff inside the code which is bad for performance.
And please stop giving proprietary binaries root permissions for no reason!!!

You can discuss issues in this topic ofc, but pls create them on github, too so I don't have to read 100 pages again to check if I've forgot sth.

Quote from CM team which apply's to my work, too:
"If you're going to reuse our work, which we're doing for free, be fair and give proper credits.
This is the only payment we're really demanding and we deserve it to be mentioned because of the countless hours we've put into this project.
Open-Source doesn't meant Out-of-Respect!!!"

@manohar: Depending on what these mods are about, yes.
BTW I saw that cyanogenmod forked msm-3.4 branch from codeaurora and is using it as a multi kernel for google msm devices now.
Maybe I'll do that switch, too in future but as of now it sounds too unstable to me.

@nick14: which bugs?(I've never tried a xiaomi rom). All bugs are listed in OP under issues
And I don't have a battery drain. when I don't have any apps installed and I use default governor(ondemand) I loose 1% per hour when not using the phone.

I was thinking about Touchscreen driver bug :)

@nick14: Ah ok. Yes the bug is still present but I don't think you'll have problems with it because as of my experience it only happens when hardly turning off the phone in fastboot mode(which I needed to do very often). I won't use opensource kernel in CWM before fixing this so u have a easy way to fix it.
When camera and fmradio are fixed I'll take a look at touchscreen and lcd drivers to optimize them.

@manohar: these sounds like general framework mods which would work on any device.

Thanks a lot M1cha for your wonderful work.
Hope to see official CM builds too with everything open source and perfectly aligned to CM framework

@phani audio-caf is the only repository I needed to replace. fmradio will need some changes to framework but I think that would be ok for CM because they're minimalistic.

@giacky98: I didn't try it. But even if not we could port custom kernels like franco's.

@manohar: You have to provide logcat. the problem is that due to secure adb you cannot do that before successful boot.
I can upload a insecure boot.img for you
EDIT: here is the insecure boot.img: http://d-h.st/Yxt
just do fastboot boot boot_insecure.img
