    wi-fi direct resolved?

  • ad77 says:

    you have to change your motto to doing our bests for s3 mini 😀

  • Lipalok says:

    And where is the surprise?

  • rahulbsnair says:

    Hey can we expect a AOKP update with 4.3 becoz I am so much used to it

  • monstergas says:

    Great Work. S3 mini originally scored about 6000 Points in Antutu-Benchmark. With the actual maclaw-image it scores more than 9000 Points …

  • Starkus says:

    1GHz bug here, and titanium backup bug too.

    • Starkus says:

      I try update my titanium backup and the bug was fixed, and i try to reinstall the CM10.2 and the 1GHz bug is fixed too, sorry. xD

  • james says:

    Is it possible to implement app to fix wifireboot ghz bug? Then it’d be unvelievable 🙂

  • Bruno says:

    Before report bugs, have sure about your installs. Its allways important to make a full wipe before install a rom. It garanties less chances of bugs.
    And Maclaw, what about 1080p recording? Our sensor and HW can handle that resolution?
    I think that is possible but maybe with low FPS, shouldn’t?
    Btw, your work is awesome! 😀
    Thanks from Brazil!

  • FoReNeO says:

    when i take a photo or video and then try to delete it, the galery takes too long to delete, BTW is the best rom ever!!

  • Harry Crocker says:

    Is there NFC on the GT-I8190N yet? if not, is it something you’re working on?

  • DOF Factory says:

    Everything works great and smooth. If we have such a nice benchmark test on HW, can you tell me why enabling HW acceleration does not work yet with this version in VLC? On the stock rom it worked, CM10.1 not and CM10.2 neither. Again, great rom so far!

  • Edmilson Neto says:

    Please solves the problem of auto brightness.

    • DOF Factory says:

      That’s impossible to solve. We do NOT have in i8190 a light sensor (yes, no hardware for it). The only workaround is to install Lux Auto Brightness and use a camera on wake to set brightness.

      • DAv7 says:

        Actually our device has got a 2-in-1 sensor, it’s called GP2AP002A00F (you can find the specification there: http://www.sharpsme.com/download/GP2AP002S00Fpdf)

        There are two problems.
        Drivers arent implemented in our kernel.
        And the second and more important problem: Samsung didnt made a hole for the light sensor…thats the only, real problem :/

        • DOF Factory says:

          Did you open the phone and checked it? In the PDF you linked in there are 2 versions of this sensor: GP2AP002S00F and GP2AP002A00F. One is with the light sensor the other is without. Can you confirm we have the xxxA00F version instead of the xxxS00F? Other discussions stopped talking about it already because they believe we have do not have the light-sensor on board. Does the OS react to the hoped-to-be-there light-sensor (even without the necessary driver to control it)? The hole is another problem of course.

  • matheus says:

    google play doesn’t work, say thats my is without internet but i’m connected to my wifi.

  • Tony says:

    Just tried it. Seems pretty nice and functional. Still a little bit buggy. Several processes crash from time to time (trebuchet for example). I went back to 10.1 for now but great job.



  • vinzie says:

    thank you so much maclaw for an impressive performance of this rom….. i got 10200 in antutu

  • Patze says:

  • sandro says:

  • alberto houtmann says:

    I have a problem. I cant change the processor performance not even setting up on boot.
    How or what can i do.

  • Marteicos says:

    The performance boost is very noticable.
    Thanks for providing us this amazing ROM.

  • Thomas says:

    I was checking for Bluetooth Low Energy support. My Polar H7 shows up and I can pair it. but runtastic won’t connect to it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.billy.billylightblue tells me my phone is “not supported”. :-/

  • Gigi says:

    Installed over last CM10.1 (wiped dalvik and system caches) and everything seems to be working fast and well. The only glitch I noticed until now is in the Quick Access Ribbon: switches for GPS and BT are inverted so that they look turned off when functionality is on and vice versa.
    So this is how the ribbon looks when GPS and BT are OFF: http://postimg.org/image/e7yf95jcl/
    And this is how it looks when GPS and BT are ON: http://postimg.org/image/uholc1u0l/

    Something my phone reboot by itself



  • KaiKai says:

    I have random reboots to !!! any idea what is it ???

  • SpriteXx says:

    Okay Guys i see many of you are heading into problems when updating from maclaws cm10.1 build to 10.2, if you updated directly to the latest on (21st october or later) then you’re all good, just make sure BEFORE updating cm10.1 to cm10.2 that while you’re in recovery CLEAR CACHE PARTITION and then go into advanced and CLEAR DALVIK CACHE. then Flash your rom. do this ONLY if flashing from same rom but updated version (i.e cm10.1 -> cm10.2) This will resolve the random reboots and app closing errors issue most of you are having.
    maclaw i think you should also put this in your posts to stop users confusion.
    And thanks for your work maclaw, if it were’nt for you, we would not of had this awesome custom rom.. 🙂

  • Whoop says:

    Hy Maclaw, it will be possible to implement an option on the default allarm to the CM 10.1 – 10.2, that will bi notify you when the device (S3 mini) its charge on 100%?:)

  • SpriteXx says:

    after my update to the 20131024 build, i only encountered one reboot, still feel like its gonna do that again, but os navigation is pretty smooth overall. some apps rarely die (bbm and youtube).
    try getting it like the last build of cm10.1 , that rom was just perfect :). Maclaw if you need dev help, beta testing or stuff like that, i’m willing to help, just give me a shout.
