RELEASE for S3 Mini
Carbon 4.4.2

New release (20140322) of Carbon 4.4.2 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.

Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors 😉

    did they fixed the unlock bug? some changelog would be nice.
    did anybody know, when changes made, or is it always just an automatic generated daily build?
    thx for build, but it would much be better, when everybody can see if its a change build or not….
