Here's my version of MIUI v4, based on CM9 (Thanks to Team Hacksung, specially codeworkx, you're an IDOL), which seems to work flawless (Other than the standard CM9 and MIUI v4 problems), atleast for now! Though I didn't get much time to test, its functional, and if you have flashed custom ROMs before, it won't kill your device! (Its tough to brick Samsung phones anyways, till you don't play with bootloaders)

Thanks Amitmiz for showing a direction!

So here's my build.

INSTALLATION STEPS

1. Copy zip file to /sdcard.
2. Reboot to Recovery
3. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
4. Go to Mounts and Storage, Wipe System...
5. Install zip from sdcard - Version 2.1
7. Wipe Data/Factory Reset AGAIN.
8. Reboot.
KNOWN ISSUES AND WORKAROUNDS

- MIUI Themes don't work. SOLUTION - Create /data/system/theme to get it to work! Only themes supported for V4 (ICS) would work properly. However, lockscreens from older themes should work!
- Initially the permissions manager will ask for permission to Manage ROOT. Permit that.
- Market won't download big apps. SOLUTION - Go to Downloads > Settings > Deselect - Data Download Prompt.
- Titanium Backup not restoring backups - SOLUTION - Enable USB Debugging in Development, Unknown Sources in Security (Device Administration). IT WORKS NOW!
- Cannot see EMMC in File Explorer - SOLUTION - Use Root Explorer, Astro File Manager, ES File Manager. (Its a MIUI v4 Bug)
- Google Apps v10 includes FaceUnlock, Google-Gallery(Support of Google Photos) and other features... If you want any of these, flash the ZIP from post 3)
- MMS Bug of SMS not reaching in first send. SOLUTION - Change View to List in Settings in Messaging APP.
- USB Storage Mount doesn't work SOLUTION - Use ADB mode/AirDroid/DroidExplorer/FTP/any other mode to share files.

flashing instructions

you want the best experience from the rom - speed/optimized/stability!
Follow this to the t.

1. Flash the rom after wiping data/cache/system.
2. After reboot, don't touch the phone, screen, anything for the first 10 minutes!
- exception - if there's a google start page(like on v2.0) wait for 2 minutes, then go through the initial pages, till you reach the home launcher, and then let it idle for 10 minutes! (do not configure google account right now.
3. Reboot
4. Now, configure your wifi(if you feel like, else 3g/2g's good), and configure google account and repeat the 10 minutes wait.
5. Reboot again.
6. Now install/restore apps from titanium backup or whatever place you choose to from. However, avoid restoring data as much as you can! Different bases have different structures, and can cause corruption!
7. Reboot to recovery
8. Wipe cache, dalvik cache, fix permissions.
9. Enjoy !!!

I have used these steps ever since eclair on a samsung galaxy s vibrant, and they've never failed me...
FIX BATTERY DRAINS

if its terrible!
1. Backup your memory sds...
2. Format your sd card and external sd partition.
3. Restore just the images, songs, titanium backup folder, clockworkmod backups. Avoid the other folders that can possibly contain corrupt files, specially those made by unstable apks.
4. You should have a major difference in battery life.

If its not so terrible!

1. Go to sd card, wipe/delete the following folders
- /sdcard/android/data/com.android.providers.media
- /sdcard/android/data/com.cooliris.media
- /sdcard/android/data/com.google.android.gallery3d
- /sdcard/android/data/com.android.providers.media
- /sdcard/androidthemes (its only a backup, not required if your rom is fine)
- /sdcard/android/dcim/.thumbnails
- /sdcard/android/dcim/100andro
- /sdcard/lost.dir

reboot, and let it stay for 10 minutes! (building thumbnails etc.)
reboot again... Enjoy!
