RELEASE for S3 Mini

New release (20131130) of CM11.0 for S3 Mini is available!

For flashing KitKat, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free πŸ˜‰

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

If you’re updating from older CM10.1/10.2/11.0 version or migrating from Oliver’s CM, you don’t have to perform a wipe!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors πŸ˜‰

    Can you add the fix like in CM10.2 for seeing the external SD card in third party apps like MPE?

    You have to wait because Google itself is working on new Camera with new API.

    Maclaw, is there any possibility to add double tap to wake function to our kernel? For example, Nexus 4 has this feature implemented in custom kernel. Thanks…

  • patze85 says:

    the only bugs i found so far

    – 3rd party keyboards cause reboots (in my case i’m using swiftkey)
    – 3rd party chargers start apollo instead of charging my device

    question: is there another camera app out there that works?
    i’ve only tried the stock app and cymera

  • steije says:

    would it work if you enter this code in adb to fix the camera they say it works on the nexus 4 to fix the camera

    code: adb shell am start -n
