    I’ve just flashed it – changing profiles can toggle WLAN, everything else (BT, GPS, mobile data…) stays unchanged.

  • Jonathan Toledo says:

    Good Work! But I have a question. Why list views are more laggy than stock ROMs? Play Store, Twitter, and many others… scroll in this apps is a little laggy, compared with stock ROMs.

    I have problem with BLN function. I need to tell, that NOT on THIS UPDATE. I have version 20131117, but I had this problem on every update (i tried about 8 updates so far) and I didn’t noticed somebody have the same problem so maybye problem is me and not ROM. So please do anybody use BLN with no problems? Please help.

    I installed this app:

    I enabled BLN in app, rebooted phone, but nothing. When i press TEST LED NOTIFICATION, the notification about test appear in status bar, but when i press PWR button, notting happen.

    In addition to this I notticed some problems with audio notifications….

    Does anybody know what I do wrong?

    • DOF Factory says:

      Use the latest stable release of CM10.2. Works for me.

    • HofiX-CZ says:

      Today I’ve done this:
      -Wipe data/factory reset
      -wipe dalvik
      -fix permissions
      -format /system
      -HAVEN’T DONE “format /preload” and “format /data and /data/media” (because i don’t know what it is)
      -installed this ROM
      -installed Gapps

      After login to Google I entered to Play and installed “BLN notification – free”, disabled and enabled BLN function, pressed Test button, pressed PWR button and….

      Still nothing :’-(

      Then I rebooted phone and tried the test again…nothing ๐Ÿ™

      What am I Doing wrong??? ๐Ÿ™

  • Gerard says:

    Thanks for your hard work Maclaw.
    One thing: I still have the notification delay bug. Iยดll be very grateful if you fix it.
    Beside that everything works great!

  • Pichucu says:

    Cant connect to wifi, infinite ip loading. Updated to 29 from 28, didnt help ๐Ÿ™

  • Roket says:

    I had a bug that is working only one core,the second one is always in offline mod.
    Will you fix this bug?

  • Rafael says:

    All good.

    Please change the boot animation of charger when phone is off. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Also governor changes to ONDEMAND and the max speed to 800 MHz…

  • Roket says:

    Will you fix ( enable) the light sensor,that can work in auto mode?

    • jm-abd says:

      light sensor if u meant that the screen will bright more due to the higher light and reduce because of lower light…i guess this will not work cause s3 mini has no light detector (sensor)

    • HofiX-CZ says:

      Man, this phone doesn’t have a light sensor for automatic dimming the display ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Roket says:

        I have read somewhere,that it have sensor,just is not activated in kernel.

        • This is an old debate… but sadly every time it ends in the fact that S3 mini haven’t that sensor and there is nothing we can do about it. Truly I don’t know if there is a sensor or not, but if the stock ROM does not use this feature is for a good reason…

  • sajmon says:

  • Darwin says:

    I just flashed the rom today and I got to say it looks amazing! One thing that kinda bothers me is that the when I watch a high quality video on YouTube, it’s not high quality. I’m wondering if there’s a way to fix it?
