      Hey there,
      I’ve got two questions updating my CM 11.0 20140309 Version to 20140326.
      First Question:
      Can’t I update to actually newest version 20140326 over the Android Settings? Or have I update this manually?

      Second question:
      If I update it manually.. are my apps/data on the telephone lost? Is a wipe required?
      Or can I install it, and all is as it was before?

      Thanks for your answers!

  • dlamalice says:

    E:Error executing updater binary in zip ‘/exter..

  • Alexia says:

    For now everything works.
    The only thing that worries me is that while booting half he screen blinks with big green pixels.
    I rebooted and it keeps doing it, but after the boot there are no problems, so it’s not a screen issue.

  • Alan says:

    How to flash TWRP 2.7? When I unzip I get a .img file, not .tar. And Odin 2.7 doesn’t offer to flash .img files.

    • Alan says:

      correction… Odin 3.07 doesn’t offer….

    • Alan says:

      Ok google was my friend this time:

      In cygwin or linux:
      tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > recovery.tar
      md5sum -t recovery.tar >> recovery.tar
      mv recovery.tar recovery.tar.md5

    • Just flash the new TWRP zip over the existing TWRP recovery and it will be automatically updated to the latest version

      • Alan says:

        That is the first thing I tried — flashing the TWRP zip file from the SD card by booting into TWRP, just like I’ve done a dozen times with the nightly CM11 builds.

        I believe those who say this worked for them. I’m telling you it didn’t work for me. Others here have said the same thing.

      • Alan says:

        BTW I’ve posted steps that *do* work for me using Odin, after preparing a tar.md5 file. Comment is awaiting moderation for some reason.

  • Alan says:

    btw thanks for the new CM. Looking forward to trying it!

    • Radek Němec says:

      Compass works for me in GPS Status application after last update of this app. It seems that the problem was in application, not in system, so you should try update your app, or try another one.

  • Mephistopheles says:

    Good to see you are alive!

    I think it was a good choice to decide this new kind of organisation.
    Hopefully now you can sort out a few problems more still beeing left.
    For example the capacitive buttons problem, which is not a big problem.

    Good luck to all of you!

    • Allan Hundeboll says:

      Whats your problem with the capacitive buttons?
      Seem to work fine on my s3 mini…
      But I did have a problem with BLN fixed by changing backlight from disabled to 1 second in settings\buttons menu

    New website design is awesome.
    Can you look in Apollo code ? it isn’t possible to listen previous song, it only repeats the current track.

    • A.Jewsbury says:

      Hi there, I too noticed this problem, its basically happening when you have shuffle on and then try and listen to previous song… take it off shuffle and it works like magic.

      I had to swap to google play music which is actually much better!! (apart from themes)

      play music also allows to upload your library to internet (cloud) up to 20,000 and listen to any device/pc away from home via internet…

      i not used apollo since!!

  • simone says:

    Hi your keyboard and the buttons don’t work
    I installed from twrp and odin but on the device I find 11-20140323 version
    How can I fix?


  • Matt_plate says:

    I make a query about installing CM 11 in a s3 mini

    You need to be root to flash by odin?

    I could do with my phone in stock and with my applications?
    Or before should make a wipe data/factory reset with the original recovery and then flash by ODIN?

    When I only flash by ODIN I install ROOT, ROM and TWRP?

    Thank you very much!

    • Allan Hundeboll says:

      I’m not sure if you need root to flash with ODIN?
      But from stock to any CM you should wipe, just make backup first so you don’t lose apps and everything…

  • Tiago says:

  • ChoKuRei says:

    BUT, “Abyssplug and SIO were deleted in governors ” !!!

    What´s now the best..??Please HELP!
    Sorry for my Bad English!


  • OnkelBlacky says:

    Nice Work,
    Thank you very much.

    Do you plan to activate SELinux?
    It’s a nice feature to protect your android phone.

  • Alan says:

    +1 on SELinux.

    As for the 0324 date… I’m guessing this is a function of the size of the update and the new web site rollout… so a multi-day build. I do think this is the newest and contains the improvements claimed in the release notes.

  • aaaa says:

    The rear camera is no working just say the procces crash

  • John Solano says:

    The camera does not work.

  • David says:

  • Matt_plate says:

    La versión para odin estara disponible?

  • Alan says:

    Once this whole internal stuff (OS) gets done, it would be great to see the UI redesigned. Something like what they did to the S5. Just saying.

  • oernil says:

    Now there is a release with so many improvements and there are still people who command what else needs to be done. -.-

    • Allan Hundeboll says:

      So TRUE
      Also seems like people change experimental setting and then wonder why its not 100% stable…

  • yazoski says:

    after flashing this rom, its randomly powers down for no reason, does anyone have this problem,and does anyone know how to fix it.

    thanks novafusion taem

  • ZTY says:

    OTG can’t use!

  • Darren Lim says:

    AFter flashing the lastest rom which is 20140326. “ok goggle” commands is no longer woking. ): I hope to change this. 20140319 was nice. Everything works fine.. I shouldn’t flash the lastest rom which is 20140326.. Regret.

    • Allan Hundeboll says:

      ALWAYS backup before flashing new ROM.
      Personally I don’t want my mini to use resources always listening for the OK Google voice command…

  • fulvius31 says:

    Thanks a lot.
    but, i’m waiting for HALO in Carbon and usb OTG in it.

  • Evandro says:

    how to install the if it is in the .ZIP format??


  • piotsze says:

    Notification sound and sms sound is no more. Anyone have got the same problem?

    • Allan Hundeboll says:

      Not me

    • jangelo says:

      Check if the notification volume is linked to the ringtone volume. Try disabling this, and see if the notification volume is set to zero. I experienced this the first time I updated to the re-branded NovaFusion ROM.

      You can then revert to the “linked” setting as before, and check if notification sound is working.

  • Robert van Schlackerooy says:

    is there an energy saver mode in ur release?

    if so where can i find it?

  • Phokus says:

    Thanks M & M, the latest release has solve the battery drain problem drastically. thanks

    • marty36 says:

      1st post, so i first want to thank you guys for trying and making all these roms.

      2nd. i have tried many roms, all with full wipes (except efs). i tried cm11 4.4.2 and carbon lately. multiple versions in multiple ways. flashed new modem after many sudden reboots on both versions.
      tried latest versions every time too. tried different recoveries. also used and still use latest release of recovery.

      In carbon and this cm11 rom i read that sudden reboots and battery are fixed (or i misread impliciation, which is possible..).
      i get that you guys are trying to fix it and i thank you for it, not complaining!

      i want it to be clear that i test roms methodicly and always first by following instructions. after that i try stuff out on xda for further instructions an latsst files.
      i never had any efs or other trouble before or after (but after re-pit i did offcourse).
      but after flashing 1st carbon i had to re-pit and re-param to get it booting at all. after carbon (februari) button combo didnt work to get in to cwm. flashed button fix. result> no-go. Tried everything to get cwm and then twrp. Nothing worked. So i 1st tried param. It booted a little further but still nothing else (this was before re-pit). then (pc-odin) repitted and flashed param with pit (without repartitin). and recovery (again maclaw twrp) with pit, also without repartition ofcourse.
      tried different maclaw cm11’s and carbons from this website, no other before or after.
      And as i said i wiped clean and follow 1st time boot – shutdown instructions, like disabling wifi and such.

      Anyway, now i tried latest march 23 carbon and march 27 cm11 4.4.2.

      cm1 and carbon fail after i install gapps 4.4.2 (latest release And 2013 4.4.2. release. signed and unsigned version if available. no luck. still sudden reboots and misreads of battery (except in 27.0.0 recovery! which seems to read it correct!).

      tried pa-gapps yesterday. after clean install cm11. worked fine, just like carbon. changed/disabled some options that use location and wifi, so wifi and location are less asked.
      >> after disabling some wifi options; like always on to only if wifi was on already, and diabeling wifi-power-safe and some other in same menu >> rom crashes hard.

      so its not fixed yet! its the same on my i8190 since my first 4.4.2 cm11 and carbon tries.

      happy coding and thx!

  • Fmini says:

    I can’t flash the file, it keeps saying download failed.
    What can I do?

    Error when flashing, it said failed (I have i8190L/Carbon 4.4.2)
