A month ago, WordPress Version 4.0 “Benny” was released for the public with several enhancements and bug fixes. Though the new WP release went smooth but the new update caused few problems for WordPress users running the older version of Thesis theme. The issue is happening with Thesis 1.8.5 and older versions of Thesis earlier than v1.8.5, that aren’t compatible with WordPress 4.0. As a result of this, Thesis 1.x users might notice 500 Server Error and “Comments not appearing in posts” after upgrading to WordPress 4.0.

Recently, we shared a guide on “How to Install Android 4.4.4 KitKat based CM11 ROM on Xiaomi Redmi 1S”. Apparently, several users followed our instructions to flash CM11 on their Redmi 1S, of which some now want to switch back to official MIUI v5. After getting several requests asking how to revert back to the stock MIUI 5 ROM on Redmi 1S, I decided to write about it. Though, the procedure is almost same as stated in our earlier guide but still we are sharing it. You can install MIUI again either using stock Mi-recovery or custom recovery like CWM or TWRP. Below you’ll find both the methods, choose one that fits you best!

OnePlus One smartphone at $299 (unlocked) is a great phone featuring a premium design and specifications of a flagship device. The OnePlus One has been available since long time but only through an invite-based model and in limited quantities that makes it a really difficult smartphone to buy. The 1+1 comes in two variants: a Chinese variant that runs on Color OS and other one is the global variant that runs on CyanogenMod 11S (CM11S) custom ROM. CM11 on OnePlus One is based on Android 4.4.2 AOSP ROM that offers a pure-Android experience, similar to as seen on Google Nexus phones. Perhaps, if you’re bored with stock Android flavour on OnePlus then you can switch to MIUI custom ROM, an amazing ROM with tons of impressive features, customization options and a beautiful user interface.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S comes pre-loaded with MIUI that itself is a great ROM, packed with impressive features and customization options. However, if your experience with MIUI on Redmi 1S isn’t satisfactory then you might be looking to install a custom ROM for enhanced performance. In order to flash a custom ROM on Android phones, you need to first install a custom recovery such as ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) or Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP). Though, both these recoveries are very popular but currently CWM for Redmi 1S isn’t complete and lacks many features, such as you can’t select .zip files to install from internal storage. Luckily, the amazing TWRP recovery is officially available for Redmi 1S, which is certainly the most stable and full-featured recovery for Redmi 1S with support for Touch interactive menu.

Recently, we shared a guide on “How to install CyanogenMod 11 (Android 4.4.4 KitKat) ROM on Redmi 1S”. The procedure required the installation of ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) to flash custom CM11 ROM. Apparently, several Redmi 1S users have flashed CWM recovery on their phone in order to install a custom ROM for improved performance or for other reasons. Perhaps, if you’ve switched back to MIUI ROM on Redmi 1S but are still running the CWM recovery, then you won’t be able to install the official MIUI OTA updates. That’s because, OTA updates are installed through MIUI Updater app that uses stock Mi-Recovery to update the device to latest version. Also, you might not be able to install the OTA update via CWM too.
