RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New release (20140129) 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.

    Hi Mac, I know you’re busy and ill, and you’re doing your best as well even after what happened, but may I ask you any news about Carbon Rom? 🙂
    Thank you anyway

  • Fernando says:

    As I can upgrade to the version 11-20140129 in my phone S3 mini with 11-20140125? Thanks

    • Marcos Gonzalez says:


    • It’s not ‘As I can’ is ‘How can I’…. but I think I get it.

      You only need to download the most recent release and put it in your SD or internal storage, as the one you already use before, and install it through recovery… and nothing else. Once it is installed you reboot and wait.

    Macław dałoby rade przeportować omni rom na S3 mini?

  • maxdefax says:

    Thank u so much for your work
    Let me tell you one question: in your directory i found 4 gapps release for kitkat 4.4.2 (full-micro-mini-aroma).
    What is the correct release to use for S3mini 8190N with CM11?

    • I think you should put the GAPPS that are available in the downloads of this web. I use them and they are working correctly…

      Full cotains all Google Apps, the important ones and the not that importants one… Maps, Youtube, Like Kiosko Play, Play Books, Play, Google +, Play Games, etc.
      Micro cotains just the essentials like Play store, Gmail, etc, and is a truly option to a small storage device.
      Mini is as the last one but even more essential… Maybe just Play Store and Google Acount.
      And aroma is a custom GAPPS with i don’t know what content.

      You also can downlaod directly from Google… They have a archive of old and new GAPPS

  • Znalazłem “mały” błąd w tej aktualizacji: Sklep Play nie działa (nie reaguje na dotknięcia, nic się nie ładuje..) oraz przy każdym uruchomieniu wyskakuje powiadomienie, że: Aplikacja wymaga zainstalowania Usługi Google Play / Żądanie od aplikacji: com.android.???.login (nie zapamiętałem całej nazwy, coś takiego było). Nie wiem czy tylko ja tak mam, na razie zostanę przy poprzedniej wersji CM11

  • RROBHI says:

  • Cătă says:

    I just want to know these things about the latest builds:
    1. Does the clock still freeze?
    2. Is the battery okay-ish? Does it last at least 2 or 3 days ?
    3. Do 3rd party apps work ok?

    • Thomas says:

      1. Alarm was working in yesterday release
      2. Battery getting much better – 3 days are possible (few hours of course also)
      3. Yes and No

    Thank you so much for this amazing ROM, but… help us please!

    …I use the application “exDialer – Dialer & Contacts” as alternative dialer and address book but the system does not save changes when I leave as default application, it always asks me to select a dialer or to view missed calls.

    Thanks guys!

  • Tk says:

    Hello to all, first of all i want to thank you for this Kitkat version.
    Now going to the real thing I’m having 2 problems:
    1) My Samsung S3 mini I8190L seems never stop charging while is off.
    2) It seems that when my cell it’s under 75% battery it restarts itself and when start again it display 2% battery so it restarts again and again.

    Someone is having this problem? Cause I don’t want to assume that the problem is the battery if it’s not.

    Additionally I want to add that sometimes, before I upgrade from Jelly Bean, it restarts itself but I always thought it was memory problem cause when it started again it keeps going like always.

    • Tk says:

      Hello to all again, I figured it out. The problem was the battery. It was dying. I install the official Samsung JellyBean 4.1.2 and the cell keeps restarting. So I change it and test this firmware again. I works perfectly 😉

  • mushu says:

    flashed the latest build. I’m getting the callui problem when somebody calls or when I try to call. Did I miss something during the installation? Thanks

  • patbradley says:
