While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance.

Samsung Galaxy SL i9003 Receives MIUI Port Based on CM7
The port is working pretty well, with a very short list of things not working so far and it’s still, as fuss132 puts it,
like 70% CM7 and 30% MIUI.
So it’s not a pure MIUI release just yet and it is still in the testing stage. If you happen to check it out, the known issues are:
GPS not working
Sometimes Kernel anic (Just remove Battery and reboot)
Some Miui Apps not working: Miui Stats, Miui Settings (so CM7 Settings included)
Video recording with Camera in very bad quality
And, of course, here’s your list of things that does currently work:
HW Acc + GPU Support
Of course Touchscreen
MIUI Apps: Miui Notes, Miui Music, Miui Contacts, Miui Phone, Miui Talk, Miui Browser, Miui Camera
Miui Lockscreen (Please activate it in your Device´s Settings)
So if you’re up for a little MIUI fun and you happen to own Samsung Galaxy SL i9003, then you can check out the original thread for additional information and installation instructions. If you’ve tried it and want to chime in to let us know how it’s working, feel free to do so!

Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
