RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New release (20140323) 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!

    Hi, Have you got a PIT file for i8190L (L Variant)?

      If you have a functional 8190L you can create the pit with “Heimdall”, its a software like odin but better and opensource

    Camera crashes.Am I doing something wrong ?

    • Mac Dekker says:

      If you have not done so wipe dalvik / cache. Also wipe the app data (setting – apps – all – camera wipe data).

      That should do it.

  • Akın YILMAZ says:

    Please repair the shutdown problem

  • pecao says:

    Is anybody also having problems with music apps? Everytime I try to use Spotify my phone stops working: black screen, I can’t turn it on again. Sometimes after a few minutes it turns on again and become responsive again.

    • pecao says:

      Solved it. It was a problem with the app itself. After reset all settings and re-sync offline music it is ok again.
      NO problems at all with this version of the ROM.

  • mamiho says:

    Well… CM 10.2 update please?
    So… Wi-Fi direct. And now something new: I’ve got a game called dead trigger 2 and I can’t update it. It’s available for s3 mini with stock or stock based roms… Yet Google play say it’s unavailable for s3 mini… Can you tell me, what’s going on?

  • NilzWSX says:

    i have an issue with videos on the cyanogenmod rom… with the app “plex” that i use, some videos do not get played… they throw me an error of reproduction thing that dont occur on the stock rom and variants… please help really like cyanogen

  • Lucas says:

    please port this rom to s advance

  • Dlamalice says:


  • how can you go back to stock???

  • Schillco says:

    Thank you for this great ROM! ‘m Super happy with it, almost everything seems to run. There are perhaps two small things:
    The automatic brightness regulation does not seem to work and if you change the profile ‘night’ without Wi-Fi back again to standard profile, W-Lan does not start automatically.
    But otherwise, thank you for this fantastic ROM. 😉

  • martin86 says:

    Is there any news about AOSP kitkat?
    CM11 works fine for me and i update my phone every two weeks. I think there is no need to update every day.

    and team.

  • NilzWSX says:

    a have video issues with the app Plex,,, it throw me an error and cant play the videos, thing that do not happen in the stock rom and variants… is there a way to fix it… ??

    • FrankBR says:

      From what I’ve been reading, it seems that we will get no updates for a while. There will be major changes in the team, which will even change their name, as well as the ROM.

  • Carlos Vallejo says:

    Wifi Direct?? Maclaw Please

  • Jur15 says:

    Still no news about YouTube HQ. I don’t want to go back to shitty stock 🙁

  • Hi, I can’t find a way to unlock my sim with my galaxy s3 mini. I know CM doesn’t do that, but can you guys tell me if there is a way without buying the unlock code?

    • Edwin Pitters says:

      1 introduce la sim del operador que no acepta
      2 marca *#197328640#
      3 ingresa a UMTS Main Menu
      4 ingresa a Debug Screen
      5 ingresa a Phone Control
      6 ingresa a Network Lock
      7 selecciona Perso SHA256 OFF
      8 espera 30 segundos
      9 despues de esperar los 30 segundos debemos volver al menu anterior “Network Lock”
      10 nuevamente estando en el menu de Network Lock debes de seleccionar NW LOCK NW DATA INNITIALLIZ debes de esperar 30 segundos mas
      despues que hagas todos los pasos correctamente solo bastara con que reinicies el telefono y ya lo tendras liberado para cualquier operadora

      • zqlprovider says:

        Hola Edwin Pitters, probé lo antes mencionado y la opción 7 Perso SHA256 OFF no aparece.
        En Network Lock dice Not active.
        Así que no pude realizar el procedimiento y el equipo sigue bloqueado.
        Estoy usando la stock rom.
        Alguna idea?
        Gracias. Saludos!

  • Having problems with my micro usb slot. Is my phone getting old or what?

  • Masterishot says:

    I want to downgrade to cm 10.2 or 10.1, do i have anythibg particulary to do so i won’t brick my phone?

  • Michael says:

    First a bif thank you for your work, MacLaw!
    I have just one wish:

    A lot of functions in this and the last versions of CM11 are buggy!

    It’s okay if functions are still not implemented or not activated.
    But in this case working functions (camera, network) are really crashing!

    Please, go back to “NIGHTLY” instead of “STABLE” !

    I think the users will be not so angry then, because they know about possible bugs in your firmware BEFORE they start installing it!

    Thank you!

  • TomG says:

    Anyone has problems with bluetooth that doesnt turn on at all, exchange services are stopping and random reboots (not exactly reboots but it shows the cryanogen logo and then it prompts me to instert my pin)?

  • I have strange problem: when I’m using WiFi or data more than 2-3 minutes (reading news, youtube etc) then my phone restarts and not able to re-run until I plug it into charger. The information about battery looks very strange because after those 2-3 minutes it shows that my battery has been completely exhausted. Do you know what can be the problem?

  • Maou says:

    How about weekly releases instead of daily?

    Oh well my S3 mini is still strong running 10.2!

    Thanks Maclaw.

  • marcial says:

    • MasterK says:

      Try if your phone volume is low buy pushing volume +
      had that problems couple of time till i remebered some people complained about that they have always to readjust the volume cause its fall to low.
      Had probs with bbm and fb chat that did the trick for me.

  • FrankBR says:

    After install dozens of CM11, I ended up going back to the old CM10.2. Today my s3 mini made ​​two calls per own will while I listened to music on the headphones. A call to a store I had just come out, and i dont have the registered number of that store on my phone.
    But thanks to the team.

  • Yael Franco says:

  • Mario says:

    As always, a great job, well done. But I would like to signal the presence of continuous reboots. In addition odiso problem of reboots when the phone is connected to the charger, remains locked does not reset anymore, you have to unplug the charger and turn it on, serious problem if it happens at night because the alarm does not work.

  • superseraway says:

    newbie here, want to flash CyanogenMode 11 for my wife’s Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Downloaded it, but have no idea to flash in into the phone. any guide?

  • Marco says:

  • cervoo says:

    And now tell me, how to go back to stock or other rom when my home button isn’t working ?

  • Sebastian says:

    At Apollo I can not rewind the songs.

  • Denokres says:

    Thank you for your amazing work.
    A little bug report (not essential, I admit it) the name of the song appearing on lock screen is often incorrect. It sometimes shows the name of the previous song while playing the next one.

  • Mario says:

    You may have the ability to have custom lock screen wallpaper ? Thanks

  • Jhon Muñoz says:

    Hello DJ, if you want to update your CM, you don´t need to wipe, just follow the instalation guide, and yes, you have to install gapps again. I rather the mini version in order to save space.

    Sorry for any grammar issues 😛

  • DJ says:

    Many Thanks !!!
