  • eze says:

    maclaw hello wanted to know if it is possible to put an end to s3 mini otg support? thanks for the customroms!

  • TIbasic says:

    This is realy 10.1 ? Not a joke or a mistake ? Do i realy open champagne ?

  • 138 says:

    I’m on CM10 beta 2, do i need to do the factory reset?


  • deconectat says:

    Amazing job, guys! I tested it on XXAMB3 and everything seems to work ok.
    It feels a little slower than DMod v6, but not a lot. I tested Temple Run and it’s playable. Bluetooth also worked perfectly.

    I had one small problem with the installation. I flashed the rom, then gapps, then did a factory reset from twrp and it didn’t boot. It was stuck at the CM boot animation. I flashed the rom again and did another factory reset and then it started ok.

  • snna k says:

    I absolutely LOVED this rom the first two minutes I had it working! 🙂 But when I installed Google Apps my phone got stuck on the “Unfortunately, Setup Wizard has crashed” error. Doing a factory reset from the settings menu was no help and that’s the only place I was able to access. I think I could re-install the rom from CVM but I can’t access it! I’ve actually never been able to access it via Vol up + Home + Power 🙁 Does anyone know if there’s anything at all I could do? I’ve managed to boot my phone into recovery in the past using S3 Mini Toolkit but now I can’t do even that since my computer won’t recognise the phone. 🙁

  • Jpeeps says:

    Great job. Just purchased an S3 Mini and was delighted to find this came out.

    Problems I’ve discovered that don’t seem to have been mentioned:
    1)Unable to authenticate WiFi network. Works on stock and other phones, but for whatever reason cannot on CM10.1
    2)Network time. When I have network time/time zones set to auto set the phones the time is always 5 hours off.

    Please let me know if you would like a logcat or something. Thanks.

  • Razvan says:

    didn’t had any problems at all with the instalation. worked like a chard.
    comming from 10.1, did a wipe cache and dalvik before flashing this.

    wating for relase with cam recorder and fixing this flicker.

    maclaw should we expect 1080i recording?

  • hudy777 says:

    Where can i find tutorial of how to install this.

  • Harry says:

    I’m new to Android, but can’t wait until I go non-stock.
    Since I’m a noob, I did a Samsung update the other day. I am now running JZO54K.I8190XXAMD3 …. will I be able to root and use CM?

  • Andrew says:

    pops champagne open, hopefully all works well. Cheers guys

  • altufaltu says:


  • Felipe says:

    My Wi-fi don’t work anymore please HELP ME. ( my phone is GT-I8190L ).

  • Tyre777 says:

    Amazing! Works great. Occasionally i have settings error but rom is smooth and useful for daily use. Still observing battery life.

  • Tindo says:

    Everything seems to work fine but I can’t find the developer options

  • Andrew says:

    Will you make this support SWAP and Ext2/3/4 in the future developments?

  • Renato Aguiar says:


    I’ve found a minor issue: Mute isn’t working in Phone app.

    • Renato Aguiar says:

      Mute is working on Skype. Maybe it’s a bug in Phone app and not in the audio backend itself.

      When will CM10.1 be added to the bugtracker?

  • stenc55 says:

    For those with wifi problem, go to wifi settings and select correct region for you. US wifi is different from EU, and if you have US settings in EU you can see wifi but you cannot log in. I think it’s the same for the rest of the world.
    My question, does anyone know inverted gapps for cm10.1, I tried 2 but ended in stuck at bootanimation?

  • Xam says:

    really cool gonna download right now!

  • TIbasic says:

    If the fat32 is not supported for sdcard, how can i use it ? (Sorry, don’t speak english, i don’t know how to ask it…) i have to use my 32go sd card, i have too much music on it… i’m waiting for video and wifi tether and i’ll give you € ! 😉

  • sonikdev says:

    Only camcorder isn’t working? That’s great !

  • moigooner says:

    I have a question (sorry if my english isn’t so good after all) in the download section it says clearly Jelly Bean 4.2.2 but I’m using 4.1.2 version on my device so, have I missed an update or what? Clear my ignorance please, I feel excited to download this rom, thank you guys for making it happen.

    • Jmar says:

      Relax!, Yesterday I did the update on my I8190L 4.1.2 to version 4.2.2 CM 10.1 maclaw, just need to make a backup (if you want to return), do the wipes before and after installing …. and ENJOY

      Mi Ingles tampoco es bueno! xD

  • Pitek says:

    Deep Sleep doesn’t work

  • Luis Felipe says:

    Hello. Congratulations for your excellent work!
    I wanted to contribute something and comment that after installing the 20130626, according to BetterBatteryStats, the biggest battery drain does the GPS, although it has been continuously disabled.
    Again congratulations.

  • fntkx says:

    Great ROM, thanks for that. I really love it.
    Did you also recognize battery drain? I just got Wifi running and lost 15% in 44mins, very unusual.

    • fntkx says:

      I figgered, that GPS is the issue.
      BetterBatteryStats tells me something about GPSLocationProvider wakelocks.
      After I deactivated Location Services completely, the kernel was the problem. A service called gps-lock.

      I crawled through the web, but I can’t find any solution for that problem. Some say that GMaps is the culprit, but I haven’t installed it at all.

      • i had the exact same problem, android.system was consuming 80% of cpu constantly!!! battery was been drained in like an hour.

        so i did some research, apparently from what i read in a thread in xda developer switch off wifi and reboot the phone and then turn on.

        my phone now works like a charm

        i hope this helps you.

        • georg says:

          it helped me at least. before that bbs showed no deep sleep but constantly 1000Mhz cpu freq, after your tip it’s spread across the 200-1000mhz range evenly and deep sleep also happens again.


    • Oliver says:

      I got the same problema :S in my mini GT-8190N

  • felipe says:

    Good afternoon. I installed your rom on my Gt 8190L for a first release is great, perfect. I’m looking forward to the next updates. Earlier this month I will make a donation! Great job, has won my respect! (bad english)

  • Jmar says:

    Muchas gracias acá en Colombia muchos pendiente de tu trabajo…

  • Michael Pua says:

    Great! As maclaw said, no need wipe anything. Just download into sdcard and install also install new gapps. Its just like updating. Everything still inside. I previously had the cm10 already.

  • Klaus says:

    I’m using it for two days now. No problems yet, but I didn’t use the phone, only apps…
    Any chance BLN will be included?


  • Piotr says:

    Bateria leci jak szalona, procek pracuje non stop na 1000 Mhz. Czekam na kolejne wydanie.

    • Macław says:

      To jak się nie będzie bawił menu performance w ustawieniach to procek nie będzie szalał, tylko będzie normalnie działać.

  • Edmilson Neto says:

    Excuse me for my English, I want to report a bug in Cyanogem 10.1 for Galaxy S3 mini: When you receive the call connection is very low, I realized that the decrease and increase the call volume, all back to normal

  • Works great for me. Better and fast! The best ROM for i8190l

  • TR says:

    BUG: Uninstalling an app through Settings cause settings to stop working. (crashes)

  • hbensalem says:

    Hello 3G not working for me :/

  • Opacks says:

    Where can i find the USB Debugging mode? Sorry I can’t find it.

  • MukriMan says:

    had a an issue..!
    volume is very low for incoming call..outgoing is ok…i maxed up the volumes….help please

  • moigooner says:

    This ROM is based in 4.2.2 right? I have a question, if i want to go back for a stock rom for example that is 4.1.2 will I have any problem? Wait for your answer buddy, a million thanks for this.

    • fntkx says:

      Just wipe everything and install a 4.1.2 rom, should work. I’ve never had any problems when downgrading or something.
      I also dropped Maclaws CM10.1 for enox’s reVenge, which is also 4.1.2

      • bob says:

        Wich is faster and smoother enox rom or Maclaws cm10.1 ?

        • fntkx says:

          They are about the same. Maclaws CM has minor glitches when browsing, but runs actually really smooth.

          Enox is also a really good ROM and the only one I found that ‘looks’ like AOSP at least.

          I had huge battery problems with Maclaws, so I had to drop that and picked enox, just because it’s stock based and without any bugs.

          • bob says:

            So maclaws rom is better because it’s still in development, thank you for your answer .

      • moigooner says:

        Thank you for your answer buddy

  • Jmar says:

    xD …2D/3D HW Acceleration is regular in light games.

  • 138 says:

    Hi Maclaw,
    So I have CM 10.1 for S3 Mini now, and all seems to work fine most of the time. But it has happened to me that the phone rebooted for no reason and change back the language to english (I usually set it up to Spanish). Do you know why this could happen?

    BUG: When system is under heavy load, occasional tearing of the display seems to occur

  • Diego says:

  • Nov Ven says:

    Thaks for the awasome job! 😀

  • meduza says:

  • Alberto Zamudio says:

  • George says:
