RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New release (20131230) 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 😉

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.

    Is it possible to flash with CWM? TWRP extension is .img so I don’t know how to flash it with Odin

  • Lipalok says:

    Is it possible to enable USB OTG? Xperia U has OTG even with the same chipset. Maybe this will help:

    • IgSoN says:

      I would also like to see USB OTG on Maclaw roms. It would be great 🙂

    • DAv7 says:

      OTG is actually working with this ROM, but you’ll need an external power supply, such as a wall-charger for every first time.
      All you need for every first time:
      OTG Cable, USB-hub, Male-Male USB cable for wall-charger and USB-hub and anything that you want to connect.
      Just plug the male-male usb calbe on side into the wallcharger, another side into the hub, and connect the hub to the phone, via the OTG. after you’ve connected them, connect your thing(pendrive, mouse, ect), and use it 😉
      If you connect it, it’ll show that youre charging your phone, while actually not, and it drains you battery fast. You have to restart your phone, after you stopped using the OTG:

    Hello! First I wanted to thank you for the ROM exelentes they have done, But also wanted to discuss a problem I’m having (with all ROM), What happens is that I use a lot the ipega controller 9017, but when I install the rom, when I activate the bluetooth recognizes the controller, but after a few seconds turns off automatically, Only happens with the ipega controller, with other bluetooth devices I have no problem, Anyone know how to fix it, or if you can fix that in a future version of the ROM please, thank you very much

  • grifter190 says:

    Since upgrading to this last night, battery went flat overnight, when asleep. 100% full when I went to bed, 100% flat when I woke 7 hours later.

    • grifter190 says:

      I think it might be a problem with the back and menu button, every time there is a Notification, they turn on and dont turn off, unless you hit the power button twice then when another notification come they turn on again

  • Dlamalice says:

    I have no problem with battery.
    ie : 97% full yesterday. 95% this morning (airplane mode).
