  • Whoop says:

    Hy Maclaw, initially a big thank for the work, but i want to ask, if i will install the CM 10.2 ODIN PACKAGE, without rooting my phone, the Binary count will increase (and i will loose my warranty) or not?

  • Rafael says:

    Here everything is going well, using Abyssplug + cfq along with that script forum (killjoy), battery happy 4% after 8 hours.
    Would that adds a fix for this configuration continue to remain after reboot.

  • ste says:

    Hi Maclaw! Will interctive turn off a core while in standby as hotplug governor?

  • Alejandro Quiroz says:

    It is Hotplug as good as in CM10.1? Because the battery management it’s great in the 10.1 ROM and it the only thing why I’m still waiting to upgrade…

  • Mario says:

    Maclaw if ı flash this rom with ODIN without root, will recovery installed?. How can ı backup my stock rom .And how can ı turn back to stock 4.1.2 after install CM10.2 with odin or my stock rom backup.

    • Ste says:

      To turn back to your stock rom you just have to use Odin again, but I think the only way to backup/restore a rom is using a custom recovery (CWM, TWRP,..etc) 🙂

  • Bill Gufran says:

      if active audio input for charging the sound you hear with a delay of 3-4 seconds
      the launch of the audio smartphone sms notification works, after a few minutes to stop working. even if you go into options sms notification clicking on other sounds audio does not work.
