  • neutrino122 says:

    Very very good work. The Rom runs very smoothly and the battery life is so far the best I had. Thank you Thank you

  • Downloading to try it (:

  • sademene says:

    How can I swap de internal- – external storage ?

    • Cirilo Rocha says:

      There is still this bug related to external armazenda, it does not appear correctly. Depending on the application you’ll have access and others do not.

  • Wakria says:

    Hey guys? Everything okay? This ROM runs perfect, really thanks. The only thing that I see (I don’t know if this is a bug or is just properly from Android 4.3) is when I use the slide menu (sliding from the top of the screen, on which I can activate the services like WI-FI, GPS, Lantern, 3G, etc, or see the notifications), there are times when the changing menu button (the one where you can change from the notifications menu to the services menu and vice versa) does not appear or disappear when I change from one menu to another. Thank you guys

    • Renton91 says:

      it depends to the clock settings you use if 24h or am/pm, if you use the second way the written of the date becomes too long to enter in the status bar, that’s why the button slides away

    • it also depend of the language that you are using… Other user have a similar trouble with portuguese, he solved changing the size of the font…

  • Pablo Honorato says:

    CM 10.2 is bugfree and it’s only update with latest sources, so, why not concentrate only in CM11 (S3Mini / Xperia U)? It’s only a suggestion.

  • Cirilo Rocha says:

    Noticed a bug when playing videos in xvid format using hw video does not appear.

  • erwwwin says:

    You can add call rec app?

  • Nico says:

    Very good,but sounds of notifications are always cut,and crash appolo when i’m listening music.

  • Mert says:

    Please fix offline charging issues. It says “Charging” always and when i restart the phone,my battery level is %98

    • It happend because the phone need 2% to turn on and start all services, at least it’s what it show…. Let me explain. Maybe what you need is calibrate the battery in order that Android can show the real state of the battery in the indicator. I don’t know if you’d have experimented, this… ‘jumps’ between percentages… A minute it is in 40% and then, suddenly, it change to 25%… Or it least hours stuck in certain %… If you are having this kind of trouble, a Calibration can make it more accurate. There are apps like “Battery Calibration” that helps in this process.
      Even so, the charging of the device turned off indeed have bugs, I’m still unable of turn it on, it just goes in a loop and show the panda’s screen. I hope this can be solved any time in the future, and if it doesn’t, it is not a feature that I use very often, but still it should be included….

      • Mert says:

        Firstly,thanks for your comment bro..
        But i don’t think that it is because of calibration. Because in stock rom, i was charging my phone and when i open my phone,battery level is %100. Didn’t you have a problem like this?
        I use offline charging so much. I can say always.. So this feature is so important for me..

  • Rafael says:

    I have a problem, this does not update the USB connection remains active. Plug in the data cable to the computer (Windows 8 Original) and the data connection drops frequently, is that just me?
    Detail: Have reinstalled the drivers Kies.

    • The other day I’d used the USB transffer with data cable… It is slow but constant and it does not disconnect any moment. I sotoped using Kies drivers long ago, now instead there is ADB universal drivers… Are more like, I don’t know I’d haven’t any problem…

  • sademene says:

    I Can’t swap the SDCard – EXTSDcard modifying the vold.fstab….
    or where i can get a .zip for CWM … a really need my 64 gb exsdcard por primary memory…

  • Heinrich says:

    First of all: Thanks for your efforts! It runs well so far, and battery life is quite good now. But unfortunately profiles do not seem to work. I have set up some profiles to change Wifi, GPS, Data, BT etc. But when I switch to another profile, it will have no effect at all. This worked flawlessly in 10.1.

  • faisal obryant says:

    usb tethering still bugs in this rom or not cause i’ve got cm10.2 (20131127) cant use usb tethering.

  • Check the governor and the max/min values, some times is a mess there.

  • Ozgur says:

    My capacitive buttons not working in any CM roms. Do u have any idea why they r not working?

  • Grisak says:

    Actually the notification problem is the only one I have with this ROM.
    When the Apollo and other player is playing and some notification caomes in, the player skips the song and the also it displays error message about DSP manager crash. This only occur when DSP Manager is On and off.
