    I advise doing a clean install from the CM to 10.1 CM 10.2!

  • Maxx says:

    Thanks guys! I’m installing it from the first release and works better and better!

  • lupocool says:

    Today I went from CM10.2 to DModV6 and back to CM10.2. With only a few minutes I could feel the huge difference in speed, graphics and personalization.

    Today I’ll try this new release.

  • Andy says:

    Thank you so much Maclaw you are the best keep working on 4.3 please thank you 🙂

    What about battery life on this release guys.

  • Whoop says:

    Thank for your work, i want to ask if the CM 10.1 will be updated yet or is the final version, because i know that you wait the Kit Kat 4.4 Android:)

  • I am on 20131016 CM10.1 and it _very_ stable… 5 days without a reboot. I think I will wait a week or 2 more before trying this CM10.2 ROM 🙂

  • Is this CM10.2 ROM Android 4.3?

  • Mert says:

    First,thanks for your work but i cant use 2g network, when i select it,it returns to 3G mode again when i restart my phone. Please fix it,if its possible. I tried because of telling this 🙂 Thanks Maclaw.

  • Alexander says:

  • Squashimo says:

  • calvin says:

    Smooth ! But still the brightness control hasn’t been fixed. Cheers ! =)

  • Gianluca says:

    whit this update the play store crash continusly !!! Why ??? T.T

  • patze85 says:

    with this latest update my phone does not charge anymore when turned on (when turned of it charges normaly!) … i’ve tried different power sources, with one my phone thinks that i’ve put headphones into the phone, and the other charging unit doesn’t even react!

  • hoxeflox says:

    Is it already stable enough for daily use?

  • Jypog says:

    thanks a lot. everything works just fine. The only issue is that it takes much more time for Wifi to be connected (comparing with the CM10.1).

  • Rafael says:

    I did a fresh installation, cleaning cache and everything else ..
    Auto brightness does not work …

    I had not problems with 3g and 2g;
    There was no reboot;
    Today I will do a test with the battery and count among other novelties.
    In all, the ROM is amazing, great job.

  • Cimi_90 says:

    Thanks to you Maclaw my s3 mini becomes much more faster and fluid than with Samsung official stock ROM! Now it’s really stable, i’m using cm 10.2 for one week and it works really good. Continue like this Maclaw!! Se will wait for android 4.4 when it will be released.. 😉

  • I updated my phone, but this error appears after boot:

    “Unfortunately, Trebuchet has stopped”

    I had to go back to the version of the day 19/10 ;(
    I appreciate your work!!!

  • Nick says:

    Why the developer options are missing?

  • Ricardo Orozco says:

    The same reboot problem on this, but definitely it’s more stable. I even find it faster on the ui
    Thanks Maclaw! Waiting for and stable CM10.2 and PAC rom updated.

  • Damian says:

    It’s a great job! I found some bugs handing me the cm10.1 to this:

    – The automatic brightness adjustment does not work
    – When I run titanium backup tells me that my su version may not work with some versions of android 4.3 correctly. (after you have installed on my device SuperSU the problem is over, I think)
    – I had to reinstall many programs would not start after upgrading from 10.1 cm to 10.2 cm but now all work

    for everything else…. wonderful ROM!

    • Damian says:

      When I say “I found some bugs handing me the cm10.1 to this” I wanted to say I found some bugs changing cm10.1 to cm10.2

      sorry for my bad english

    • Jesseee says:

      Our device doesn’t have light sensor so auto brightness can’t work on any rom 😉

      • Damian says:

        Thanks for your answer!

        Another thing I did not mention, is that when the phone is off and charging and you press the button to turn on, it does not. The only way I’ve been able to is turning the phone without being charged and then once on the charger plug.

        Thanks again

  • DOF Factory says:

    HW acceleration now works 100% for Chrome, but not with VLC (and I believe MX Player won’t have it either)

  • EccTM says:

    On my I8190N I don’t get any form of signal, my network shows up as “Unknown” and it refuses to search for networks. Baseband I8190NXXALL6. I’ll happily post logcats and try flash any possible fixes if your willing to look into this, maclaw?

  • kubakos says:

    Can I return to 10.1 installing on 10.2?

  • James132ii says:

    Hey guys, Im not sure but can someone confirm it. I can’t download the latest release of cm.???

  • patrick says:

    UI is not as smooth as CM10.1 but overall it is a great rom.
    Thanks Maclaw!

  • petersoniq says:

    Great job guys, Thanx. CM 10.2 S3Mini.

  • Juan Carlos says:

    maclaw i have strange pixels instead of bootlogo, can you upload again fix-bootlogo-i8190l.zip thanks

  • Marcos Gonzalez says:

  • Bartek says:

    Czesc Maclaw. S3mini z CM10.2 po podlaczeniu do ladowarki samochodowej wlacza odtwarzanie muzyki i sie nie laduje.

  • Ruben says:

    Everything works great after flashing the rom, the only concern, it’s that when I the ac charger does not charge, instead it activates the music player. Only charges via usb conected to the computer or with the ac charger qhen the cellphone is off.

    Keep up the good work. S3 mini user
