    > better battery life due to disabling looking for LTE networks

    Dumb question, but: does it apply to I8190N (non-LTE) model of S3 mini?

  • Michael says:

    CM11 still switch back to LTE, if I try to chance to 3G or 2G.
    It’s still not possible to change the network operator manually….

    • gouru1 says:

      +1 !
      It may help some of you:
      – 2G: I found a solution to set up manually 2G network.
      Go to the dialer, type * # * # 4636 # * # *, chose info about phone, then set preffered network type is GSM only.
      – 3G: If you set WCDMA only it will be 3G.

      Both methods works, but you still can not chose network operator. As long as it will not work CM11 is useless for me.

  • Jonathan says:

    Maclaw Studio My MINI S3 runs 4G , what option should I have to set? 3G or LTE ? :S Panama Company runs 4G now.

    • shagadelic says:

      Hello studio;) Don´t know about the battery consumption of 4g, but you can switch back if you don´t need the speed all the time and prefer more battery life… So if you have lte, use it. Btw 4g=lte…

  • Emanuele says:

    Very good work! Thank you! Plz fix clock, sometimes freezes even without alarm..

  • Tony says:

    • enes says:

  • Sebastian Noir says:

  • David says:

    Thank you ! 🙂

  • Sot says:

    My phone stuck on bootlogo.., I think art it’s not working again!

  • Julio says:

    Very nice version we have of Kit Kat 4.4.2 on our S3 mini. As I saw in previous comments, I also noticed that Youtube does not give us high resolution for HD videos, even HD is on!.
    In my opinion, is missing the video player and some codecs for videos (like mkv, avi..).
    Overall.. nice work! Is working fine so far in my device.

    One more thing, the led of “back and menu” when a notification comes light turn on on. My suggestion, should be an option to cancel this if we don’t want to keep it on.

  • Synonymous says:

    Please fix bad quality video on youtube

  • Jur15 says:

    Thank you, now the phone turns off normaly 😀
    But, please fix YouTube; I know nobody has do it but al least try.

    Otherwise thx Maclaw for the good work.

    • MasterK says:

      How can something run thats disabled and/or stoped

  • farouqarifin says:

    Is CM10.2 already dead? It’s been a whole month since the last update…

  • Edwin Pitters says:

    gentlemen, good day, yesterday this version has been running fine, but this morning I noticed a problem in that when disconnecting the charger, the phone is still charging as if, also thank you to Maclaw and his team for the great job they are doing …

  • David says:

    Getting closer to perfection mate 😀 thank you !! one thing i have found my phone just can not “sleep” i saw the graphic and it is constantly waking up during the night.. so i noticed a drop of battery energy around 20% . it should sleep am i right ?? thanks again

  • Mario says:

    Audio problems. Speakerphone sound is too low, you have to lower and raise the volume to get a good sound. Incoming call sometimes feels too low

  • Michael says:

    Awesome ROM the only thing besides that i can’t manually select the network is the sound when you switch to speakers in a call doesn’t adjust and sounds low so i have to lower and then raise the volume it would be awesome if you fix that but Overall a very awesome ROM

  • george u says:

    big fan of ur work…. been on ur kit kat over 3 months…. now i got a problem…. i updated about a week ago and from that time i get random reboots with bootloop stuck…. all the time…. tried to change the rom, even back to stock( original firmwire) but the problem remains, my battery value does not update corectly, even after a full charge over night, after reset sucks in bootloop about 20 min and then tells me that battery is empty, or other random value… PLS HELP… my phone is usless to me now….

    • george u says:

      note… if i connect it to a charger during bootig it works fine, but resets even with charger connected..

  • julio says:

    Thanks for this update. 2 “issues” here…
    1- calls un speaker is too low and have to manually down and up.
    2- youtube app “HD” resolution is so bad!!

    Hope we have an update/fix on this soon.
    Thanks! Asome work done here with this ROM.

  • john says:

    Why can my phone not connect to mobile internet whilst useing these roms ?
    Used to be ok but then no ! Have tried having the settings resent from 02 and also tried putting in settings manually.
    Why ??

  • achim says:

    OTA updates will not work with CM… to update, get the new version of the ROM copied over to your SD card (may want to download it on phone directly), then install via TWRP. No need to wipe cache/dalvik for normal upgrades…

  • Mehmet says:


    How can I add FM radio that roms ?
