    • Macław says:

      As I said a few times, we’re waiting for Marcin’s Gio back from service… It should happen this week.

      Cheers 😉

    • And what are you doing to change things? Only complain in capital letters. Do you really consider yourself as a fan?

      I admire Maclaw Studio people not only for their hard work but for their infinite patience.

      Sometimes they should feel like “giving flowers to pigs”

      I’ve got a S3 mini of course, but I put some bucks to help recover Marcin’s Gio as well.

      • ciciban101 says:

        dude, im just happy when i see maclaw post about ace, and the things for that phone, im from serbia, and here i cant donate to him, for a few weeks, i’d probably buy Galaxy S2 Plus (GT-I950), or S3 , i really want some good stuff to put it on my ace, im with maclaw since ‘camer not working’, or ‘overclocking disabled’, i know all things, and im sorry if i said it on the wrong way. im ur fan maclaw, and just keep up the good work. dont forget about ace and gio bro ! 😀 btw: i have 17 and i cant donate)) 🙁

    Install fine and works until a reboot then System UI crashes continuously. Tried wipe, reinstall, fix permissions and still same result

  • Harry says:

    Seems to be working fine so far – THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

    (on a sidenote, if you update and wonder about apps not working: I dunno why it’s necessary, but you have to also (re)install Google Apps if you just update AOKP)

  • Fabricio says:

    Vibratory mode not working for me

  • spanman says:

    Persons tell me when I called them I sound crackle for about 5 seconds during the call. Happens once or twice every 10 calls I make. Was wondering if anyone else has that issue with this release?

  • rockstar203 says:

    Hello Maclaw Studio! I think most of us heard about that our Gio can record videos at VGA resolution, using lgcamera app from market. But this works only on Froyo. I tested it today and it’s awesome!

    My question is why developers never tried to enable VGA video recording on Gingerbread/ICS too?

  • Ertan says:

    in call volume low, help please ?

  • axgud says:

    what about GPS?

  • swift says:

    A2DP is not working! Headset and Bluetooth audio streaming both give just strange noises! Your bluetooth is shitty like any other 4.2.2 ROM that’s out there, and you claim to have “no issues”. The Samsung Bluetooth (4.1.2 of course) you claim to be buggy works perfect instead!

  • irufunirufun says:

    my back button doesn’t work. does anyone experienced the same thing?

  • Ertan says:

    in call volume low ??

  • Benz says:

    When in-call press vol down then vol up again, that solves the issue.

  • Felipe daidouji says:

    The same issue from CM 10.1 with GPS, not working/sync.

    The others features working very fine! =D
    Great work man!!

  • Rod says:

    I’m on CM10.1. Do I need to factory reset etc. to install AOKP?

    Thanks for the hard work!

  • Jebús xD says:


  • aavvaallooss says:

  • Jebús xD says:


  • Paolo Galian says:

  • Rod says:

    Thanks MaclawStudio! I am on CM10.1 now and it’s awesome! Patiently waiting for CM10.2 and Android 4.3. Cheers!

  • Cesar Pulgarin says:

    I have a bluetooth headset, I tried with CM10.1 by maclaw and with thie one, and I can’t listen to music, can’t answer calls or even make calls. it doesn’t work at all.

  • Andrew says:

  • agr3ssor says:

  • I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with?
    I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any solutions?
