    I just replaced Cyanogen 7 for my Desire with Miui - anyone played with it at all? I've only just got it on, but so far it seems incredibly polished for a "mere" ROM. Not sure if I like it yet, but it's a very interesting thing.
    How is the translations of MIUI so far, last I looked a lot of it was in chinese

    I haven't found any problem so far. I think its developed in China then translated afterwards, so the version you install will either be all Chinese or all English.

    I'm running a theme on top ATM that's fairly cool:

    There's an app to take screenshots, then probably post through the phone, or extract the files from the SD card.

    Yeah I use 'shootme' and have to temp root before I use it. The unrooted way looked really long.

    I keep the background static so that the homescreens appear to move over it. Looks pretty cool.

    ShootMe starts is own service within Android, which you need SU permissions to do.

    Root is essentially equivalent to admin rights on Windows.
