RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New release (20140131) 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.

    First of all i’d like to thank you Maclaw & and your team for this Excellent ROM,
    but there’s a 3 bugs that I hope you fix them soon:
    1 – menu & back button on the device stay light on after full charge and never turn off.
    2 – Whatsapp notifications and messages sound is always on even if the phone on silent or mute!
    3 – the battery consumption is killing me 🙁

    — Thanks, and sorry if my English wasn’t clear to you 🙂

  • Abidin says:

    I cant install kitkat gapps, it says error. So I cant use cm11 🙁

  • patze85 says:

    your releases are getting better and better!
    are there any news on ota updates? 🙂

  • Dan says:

    Hey Maclaw, any news on OTA at all?

    Was just about to flash yesterday’s release but then noticed this one lol

    Would be great to have auto-update.

    Thanks for the hard work!

  • fede says:

    Please fix the noise from twitter & auto brightness

  • Javier Cruz says:

    Thanks maclaw for your work!

    I having really issues with the battery i think is because the way i flash the rom, i have a question, do i have to perform any type of wipe before flashing each release?

    sorry for the bad english!

  • Stefan says:

    Thank you for the good Job 😉

    Since yesterday I find the battery performance is better, in normal operation the consumption was in four hours from 100% to 83%. WhastApp sound problem is since this release gone. I, however, noticed that at end of the game “Pou” is still heard a loud sound. If the phone hangs on the charger when it is going down then it starts still new!

    Otherwise, I’m totally satisfied, the ROM is great! With the camera, bluetooth, wifi, gps and usb connection, there are no problems. OTA updates would be perfect and would do some things easier, because almost every day a new update comes out!

  • Fausto says:

  • Marcus Mjm says:

    I having really anoying issues with the battery i think is because the way i flash the rom, i have a question, do i have to perform any type of wipe before flashing each release?

    sorry for the bad english!

    • After some testing, I’ve found that Google+ tends to drain the battery due to wakelocks when the app is supposed to be suspended, especially when auto-backup of photos is activated.

      Best solution would be to _not_ install apps that drain battery due to wakelocks or to greenify these.

      • Javier Cruz says:

        I freeze with titanium backup google plus and battery lasts me 4 hours of use, apparently I have 47% the phone reboots and then lit with 2%

        i think im going back to the stock a flash cm11 again

    There are 3 bugs to fix

    1. Viewing the 100% charged when the phone is turned off.
    2. Fixing the bug that you can not turn the phone off while charging it from.
    3. Resolve your speaker during calls that can be heard.

  • paul says:

    3g networking don’t work, please fix….

  • Maakulgur says:

    Alarm Clock still not waking up. In deep sleep Alarm not ringing. If I press any button, alarm start ringing, but too late… Cannot trust this alarm.

  • Michael Schaefer says:

    Something is seriously messed up with this release. The alarm clock doesn’t work again and something is causing massive lag spikes resulting in an almost not usable device even after reboot. Trying to input the PIN works like walking through a tar pit. And afterwards the icon for a missed alarm blinks like mad, maybe that is related somehow?

  • martin says:

    When i change from 2g to 3g it shows tan error

  • David says:

    No major problems so far here ! 🙂 Battery life is better .- NO clock freeze.- Wifi good -.gps consumption still a lot 😀 great job Maclaw .. thank you again

  • M says:
