    • It does work on the i8190L. Haven’t tried the GPS yet, but as far as I’ve tested the only thing that’s not working (for me) is the native wifi tethering.

  • Negro says:

    So now I can watch porn, right?

  • PedroJ says:

    Works FABOLOUS. Thanks Maclaw! 🙂

  • Leumasmal says:

    Would you recommend it for daily use?

  • jeka says:

    sorry my bad english
    free space on phone 700mb
    wifi bad connection

  • Glad to see Marcin back. I hope you are well.
    Congratulations and thank you for you time and work and for sharing this dramatic experience.
    You sould make a post in the blog to explain the way to get CM10 for S3 Mini.
    Have some minis, you deserve it.
    And… where are the fucking sources?
    Just kidding,

  • thehamburgler says:

    Downloading it right now 😀 But I have a question, do I need to wipe data and cache to flash this if I’m still on CM10 Alpha 2? Or just flash it directly?

  • Awesome rom! Thx! i want to say that Google Now is not working well, when i try to talk it doesnt work. Thx!

  • boost09 says:

    Hi maclaw, i have a simple request, can you up somewhere interactive_cpufreq.c about this point:
    “backported interactive governor with touch boost from nexus 7”

    I ask this because i see that sources are not synced yet..

    Thank you

  • thehamburgler says:

    CM10 Beta 1 is pretty good, I’m kinda speechless right now, but the thing bothering me is that I’ve been stuck on Alpha 2 for a very long time, and now that the flickering is fixed, my mind is still thinking that there is still in fact a flickering problem. And the battery suddenly became slower in charging. Other than that, it’s pretty damn awesome.

    • Jessee says:

      I have also noticed some flickering (if means the thing that screen kind of “lags” little when scrolling), but it’s just a little thing. Still GREAT ROM!

  • Jesse says:

    Great rom thanks maclaw!
    But I do have a problem: I can’t get internet connection to work.. I have right operator and it shows that I have signal so messages and phonecalls shoul work. I tried to enable mobiledata from everywhere but still I gat “no internet connection” Any ideas how to fix it? I read somewhere that it may be due to APN settings..

  • Nico says:

    Hi!
    It looks really great, but I was unable to add an APN and use mobile data.

  • Arnau says:

    My Micro SD doesn’t work. What can I do? 🙁 Thanks for all!! 😀

    • Arnau says:

      OK, I repair that. The problem is that I do some partitions to my MicroSD and CM don’t work with these. I format it and now works fine 😀

  • dariolobda says:

    Hey maclaw, first of all thanks for bringing us CM10. I have been a CM maintainer for my device in the past and I know it can be very demanding!
    That said,as other users,I couldn’t manage to get data working, I’ve also tried to set a APN manually but it did not get saved 🙁
    Any solution? I’ve already tried to reflash/wipe

  • Holuus says:

    The microphone doesn’t work, only for calls. But anyway, thanks for all 😀

  • Thanks good job, waiting for future versions

  • Same here: Mobile data didn’t work and I was unable to add an APN either manually (didn’t save after the APN after creation) and through external programs set as system app… And Email apps crash for me, anyway pretty good relase such as beta 1! 🙂
    Thanks!

  • Lipalok says:

    Amazing ROM, Maclaw! Thanks!

  • amer says:

    how to flash it . please teach me .. 🙁

  • Kevin says:

    Maclaw, Are you about to release the Official version of CM10 during this week?

  • heavp says:

    I tried to set apns manually, after finding the necessary informations, and I’m confident: I did set them right (I tried that one before). The thing is: it just doesn’t save the settings. (Italy here)

    Also: do you thing you will be providing support for NFC, too?

    For what concerns everything else: outstanding work, men! really!

  • For now these are the problems encountered. Clean install (factory reset).

    The access point portable wi fi does not work.
    In the notification bar, the status of the sound is not fixed.

    Thank you.

  • alamri007 says:

    after reading somw comments i think i have sorted some of the knowing issues:
    ( Tiago Coelho Loss )
    – The access point portable wi fi does not work.
    – In the notification bar, the status of the sound is not fixed.

    ( Nico )
    – unable to add an APN and use mobile data. ( solution : Try to set APNs manually. )

    ( jeka )
    – high RAM usage.

  • Basti says:

    Hi,great work so far and THX to the team! But adding apn manually unfortunately doesnt work. After entering data nothing is stored. Cheers basti

  • Basti says:

    Sorry, miracle appeared! Everything ist there! Even APN automatically installed & my manually added stuff as well…don’t know why 🙂 but am happy. Happened overnight. THX a lot!

  • amer says:

    should i wipe/factory to use this rom ??

  • amer says:

    maclaw . help me . i use ur cm10 beta1 .. i reboot after i install your rom . after that . it keep show cyanogenMod logo . what should i do ?
    #sory for my bad english

  • I am running on a I8190L (brazillian version) and works very fine. Good job!!
    Thanks Maclaw!!
    Waiting for a Final Version! =D

  • so my mobile data isn’t working. I actally tried setting the apns manually but it wouldn’t let me

    • Jessee says:

      LOOK OTHER COMMENTS. If setting apns manually doesn’t work enable airplane mode, disable it and you have correct apn settings in the list.

  • josh says:

    I can’t move apps2sd

  • alamri007 says:

    MacLaw, thank you very much for this long waited release. But there still be an issue with the in-call low voice. i can barely hear the caller, is that only me? it’s the same thing since Alpha2
    And thanks alot

  • Other errors encountered:

    Microphone does not work in the app;
    Random reboot.

  • eze says:

    hello maclaw rom is great, super super smooth, so if, in my case the battery is spent very quickly, as the project will support usb otg? : D, you’re working great so follow, I love your rom. PS: sorry for my bad English

  • TDS says:

    Great stuff. But there a major and minor things to fix.
    Battery drain is high. If S3 is locked it should go in deep sleep mode. But after 60 minutes I see that battery is minus 4%, with stock that wasn’t.
    Maybe there is another bug in screen resize functions for e.g. background images. It has too small gutter to resize and select. If finish the image is stretched although it would fit to screen. Camera is good and video a bit slow.
    Internet is faster than stock.
    GPS sometimes hangs (like same bug as on i8160 => fixed by asdfzz, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=42001490&postcount=461).

    • TDS says:

      Another bug: Yesterday evening battery was about 45%. Tomorrow early morning handy was off. 45% in one night? BT off. WiFi on. 2G only.

    • Jessee says:

      3hrs only 5% battery drain for me, are u sure it wasn’t some app or rild process? 😮

      • TDS says:

        It was normal like 24 hours before. Only 20-30% a day. But yesterday no other app running and battery usage 45% in 8 hours without using… Strange 🙁

  • Renato Aguiar says:

    Great work!

    Microphone seems no work in other applications than “Phone” (built-in caller). I can’t use Skype voice calls, for example. Everything else is OK for my daily usage.

  • Alex says:

    Good job! Thank you for the rom. Does your kernel support swap/zram?

  • Basti says:

    SIP calls also not possible in my case. Rings, but as soon as called person answers, sound is off, nothi9ng to hear and also cannot be heard at the other end. Might be a bug as SIP works with same configs on my Motorola Defy CM7.
    cheers

    • TDS says:

      Bug is known and caused by RIL in combination with microphone used outside standard system applications (skype, etc.).

  • Kirill says:

    Please, fix mobile data bugs.

  • LegionSoul says:

    shared your link on fb and twitter 😉 thx to make this rom almost work perfect 😉
    you top thumbs up

  • Jannick Diderichsen says:

    I dont know if it is this roms fault but since install my battery is getting so hot when using my device. Any others having same problem?

  • Mateus says:

    Hi would this work on the NFC version (GT-i8190N)? Thanks.

  • Walttu says:

    Everybody, if u dont get apn working, just turn airplane mode on and off, then turn roaming services on then it should work
