Sonic, thank you very much.
I know it's hard to find time for a project like this.
Can't wait to test it :)

Can you please clarify GPS status?
Feature list says it is fixed:
8. GPS and EPO Fixes
And the in the bug list:
4. New location services (Epo and AGPS not works) disabled MTK settings in ROM.
What exactly is fixed, I'm currently on stable 13 and both work fine?
And is it just disabled in new rom? EPO and AGPS both can be enabled/disabled via Mobileuncle tools.
The only problem with EPO is that the default server is overloaded all the time and epo download fails. Can be fixed with dedicated app from google play or via manual download from alternate location - I tested both methods and it works fine with stable 13 rooted phone.

EPO and AGPS from Settings menu not works. Both tweaks inside ROM.You can use Enginnering mode translated to englisch to download AGPS and EPO. Tested and working.
Open Settings go to Stock Settings. Last untranslated menu.
EPO and AGPS in location menu is from MTK. This settings not works
Accurate is 4 m . First fix longer but GPS working fine with cars or Endomondo
Or use Mobile Uncle Tools , Faster GPS . Many ways, same result

I think the build.prop file is a mess.
I start to see a padron in you, the way you organise posts the build.prop etc. You are a bit like a mad scientist :)
Also I keep advising people to never mess with the phone partitions as this will endup in corrupting the IMEI and so on.

Do you maybe know from which server it downloads EPO data?
Because by default it's hardcoded in the framework to epo.mediatek.com.
BTW, are the partitions (internal and external SDcard) in the same order as in stable 13?
I have some software that stores data on external SD and it gets quite lost if the partitions are changed :(

Yea, I noticed it too. Some strange characters and a bunch of question marks inside the last couple of paragraphs.
Maybe some codepage problem when porting this from chinese.

Not only that but several bunches of wifi tweaks spreaded apart, instead of be all line up by topics and organised

I'm more interested in MIUI fixes that Sonic integrated into ROM and he is doing a great job about it.
As for the init.d and build.prop tweaks you mentioned it is probably from the original ROM that Sonic based his on.
I don't care about tweaks (and antutu score) as long as these don't cause any problems. I did take a look at one of binbinshe's ROMs and description looks very similar - a lot of tweaks.
I'm going to try this ROM in a next couple of days and see how it works :)

Once again dowload the rom on the phone , on the ext ssd card.
By flashing an error copy it with the Twrp manager to the phone memory same error.
So backt to flash the original rom and from then try it.
No want to download on computer do i get an error from mega that file doesn't excist
Jan 7, 2014
Try redownload, corupted .zip file

Oke i will try it again, but still strange that on te PC Mega does not download the file complete some times stuck by 81% other time 54%

At last after two hours fighting and flashing , got it working.
And directly one fault in a translation under option developer
Animation scale forgot the Zero now it looks like .5 instead of 0.5
Second some translation of the icons is not complete
Galery= Galerij
Themes= Themas
Notes= Notities
System= Systeem
More Apps= Meer Apps
Authenciator does not now the translation but this prog is complete in Chinese
Usb modelswitch also

Ota updater say that there is a new rom
This update will update version Redmi Unique V5_2.0.1
to V5_2.0.2
which is strange because the installed version is V5_2.0.4
Some things missing in the calendar the overview of appointments
In the phone and contact the groups now i have all the contact instead of separated in groups

this is a joke right?
buil.prop is heavily modified with old build.prop tweaks (ICS)
Read the first post: Based on Binbinshe port...
Sonic took already prepared ROM and added his own fixes and apps.
I'm also a bit skeptical about all the build.prop and especially init.d tweaks.
Now, what I would like to see is vanilla stable 13 multilang ROM with all the fixes Sonic made :)
If it is possible without all the mentioned tweaks.
I think we should not dissect this ROM, but try it and see if we can contribute somehow to a better MIUI experience :)

And point to the developer what is missing or what could be bettter.

Idon't wish to be badly understood, but what i meant to say is that build.prop tweaks are just rubish and nothing new as the tweaks available already exists for more than and year.
Not only they are not new but they don't have any effect in JB roms and if they have its more a negative impact than positive....
I'm no dev but I used to play a lot with build.prop and what I realised was that the tweaks applied the ones I thought that improved something was just placebo and in fact was draining battery or the wi-fi wasn't working as good as before, etc etc.

I installed the rom, but unfortunately when I unlock the screensaver back to the symbol of miui and does not allow me to enter the code unlocking sim.

Hi, maybe this is a strange request but what does it take to unroot the ROM? I just want to permanently apply some of the changes and remove root after that
