CyanogenMod 12.1

New stable release (20150829) of CM12.1 for S3 Mini is available!

Please, test it and report any bugs!

For flashing Lollipop, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation if you don’t updating from older CM12.0 release.

You need to perform a wipe if you’re migrating from software different than CM12.0!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

Changelog:

  • CM sources updated to latest
  • fixed dialer crashes (golden-guy/PolishVodka)
  • Odin package update

Features

  • RIL (phone/SMS/3G)
  • audio (both speakers/headphones/microphone)
  • Wi-fi
  • Bluetooth 4.0 with LE support A2DP
  • GPS/Glonass/A-GPS
  • sensors
  • compass
  • camera (taking photos and videos)
  • video playing
  • 2D/3D HW Acceleration
  • all native tethers (Wifi/BT/USB)
  • Google Play
  • CPU sleep mode
  • MTP
  • ADB
  • no tearing
  • tripple buffering
  • external storage
  • f2fs filesystem support
  • offline charging

Issues

  • video taken by stock camera app is green, but some apps like Camu taking correct videos without any issues
  • less than 2% of users are reporting issues with mobile data – just add new APN manually with settings proper for your provider and apply it to make 3G working

I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors ;-)
Thanks.

If somehow you’ll find a bug, use our bugtracker if you want to report it.

Short info about upcoming release (tonight or in the morning, I have terrible Internet connection in here):

We finally did it. We’ve returned good old performance of CyanogenMod ROM on S3 Mini. It was really hard, but required to continue development for this device.

But somehow it united us (I mean team) again, as in better times. We’ve spend more than 100 hours in last 2 weeks on development. And finally today I can say – it was worth it.

We’ve resolved all problems with S3 Mini on latest CM12.1 sources, which appeared 2 weeks ago. We’ve reworked patches for our phone completely, we’ve reworked device tree and restabilized our kernel.

Due to this situation, e’ve also returned to things which were abandoned some time ago. You will be surprised soon with new things.

More info tomorrow with upcoming release. You’ll get first of most stable released of Lollipop of S3 Mini. It’s like a new chapter in Lollipop development for S3 Mini.

Regards,
Yours Macław
