This ROM has nothing to do with MIUI except that it is based on CM7, the same as the MIUI GB releases.
A lot of you like the clean interface, the stability, the speed, the battery life and the fact that everything just works with Villain_Au, so we are continuing to update it. Villain_Au 2.3 was released on 15 May 2011

All props go to Richard Tripp and several other people over at XDA for this ROM.
We have added in our APN’s and made the changes required for the ROM to work with Telstra if you are in Australia (this doesn’t affect the use of VillainROM with other Telco’s) and we also added a bit of MIUI flavour.

This ROM is soooo good on battery life, its not worth chasing more (IMO), but WiFi Scheduler (from Market) is good for turning Bluetooth off at night
- There are lots of great features under Settings > CyanogenMod settings, for example
- Settings > CyanogenMod settings > Input > Trackball wake to use trackball to wake phone
- Settings > CyanogenMod settings > Lockscreen > Unlock options >Trackball unlock to use trackball to unlock phone (so with both options, two trackball presses wakes phone and unlocks)
- Settings > CyanogenMod settings > Lockscreen > Widget options >Always display battery and Lockscreen music control are worth ticking
- Settings > CyanogenMod settings > Sound > Quiet hours – very useful if you sleep with the phone near you and don’t want to be woken up by an email arriving at 4.00am
Richard Tripp and many other ROM chefs, use Darktremor A2SD (we’ll call it DT-A2SD). DT is stable, reliable and very full featured with a command line interface (and now a GUI interface also) that can be used to change many settings. In early 2011 DT stopped moving the Dalvik cache to the SD Card automatically and it had to be done using the command line interface (a2sd cachesd command). We at MIUI-Au were not happy with this and some other aspects of DT so we built our own A2SD, which we call PC-A2SD. Features of PC-A2SD are: Invisible, automatic, no command line interface and nothing for the user to do. Automatically puts Dalvik cache on SD Card. Automatically handles slow to mount SD Cards and will also allow the ROM to run without an SD card. In real world use we believe it is no slower than DT, and provides 40Mb – 80Mb more internal phone storage by moving the Dalvik cache out of the phone and onto the SD Card.
