  • queo says:

    Dear Novafusion team members!

    First I’d like to say a big thank you for your hard work. Your ROMs are great, but there’s one big error which is really annoying: it’s the clock freeze. Could you please tell me and all the others whether you’re working on this issue and could you please mark it as an ISSUE when you create the release notes for a new ROM?

    Many thanks, best regards
    (using the latest ROM and always wiping app/dalvik cache)

    • Murillo Mello says:


      • Mark says:

        Murillo, there are two clocks in the package, if you download from play store an app called root app delete, you can remove one clock and it will fix it!

        this is how I sorted mine out

        • Alex says:

          Hey Mark,

          I wipe everything, install this new release and this morning I found a message in my phone that I’ve missed 2 alarms.

          Could you please detail a bit more of what you did?

          I found 2 clock packages in my phone:

          “com.cyanogenmod.lockclock” and “”

          Which one did you disabled to make it work? Or Am I totally lost here?


    • Eversceptic says:


  • panderawan says:

    As an other user on the XDA forum, i use ART, and this release makes all apps crash upon phone boot. I did a dalvik/cache wipe, and installed as usual. Can you help me please?

  • MarQus says: was unfortunately terminated

  • Emanuele says:

    Offline charging stop at 98%. When battery is at about 30% level go down to about 20% very fastly, then stop decreasing for a while. Already tried to recalibrate. However great work, thank you!

    • Lexihel says:

      Sadly I reported this a few weeks back in the forums. I was called an “irresponsible” and “newbie” user that had to “take care of what I’m installing”. Still today I made a totally clean install, wiped everything, changed battery, changed charger, fixed permissions, turned my mother upside down and adopted a butterfly, but battery keeps getting stuck at 92~94% even after 5 hours connected, no apps, no sync, just phone. It starts to go down terribly fast and shuts down at about 15%, when you plug the charger in: Battery is drained to 0.

      This is the last time I tried, before this, I went back to stock, made a complete and terribly newby and irresponsible use of my phone and battery charged fully to 100%. So, there’s something with this ROM or Kernel, something somewhere, that’s wrong. But well, I’m just an irresponsible newbie.

      • brazz says:

        Are you sure that is was not the 1GHz bug? Also check the health of your battery, you can find those on the playstore. I have been using CM11 since the very beginning and i never had issues at all. Not eventhe clock freeze or irrespondable buttons.

  • MarkZ says:

    Hey guys, I updated to this version today and now I have a few major issues:
    1)My home button doesn’t work anymore. Strangely enough, using ADW Launcher, I can define double-tap as “open app switcher”, which does work. The basic function just doesn’t.
    2)The quick settings panel is inaccessible.
    3)After a reboot I have to lock my screen and unlock it again, else I cannot enter my PIN.
    4)No notifications! My phone vibrates when I get messages, but the notification center stays empty.
    5)All my sounds got reset / emptied. I have to set them all again.

    Possibly there are more, but those are the ones I’ve found already. Please fix those fast, as they are serious!

    In this compilation system drain my battery extra fast…today i charge it 2 times!!
    Earlier i put my cell to charger after 2 days….and auto restarts without reason from 28.03.2014 until last update o_O.
    Other problem – very low finding GPS signal, it take 3-5min, earlier 20-30 sek max!
    I install like usually – install by TWRP, clean cache and dalvik, restart…
    I’m back to 26.03.2014 its the last, not problematic compilation for me.

    M&M please fix this problems, because something goes wrong. Don’t think about me wrong, u r do best job, but latest 3 compilations are crap :(.

  • Hira says:

    sometimes my battery indicator seen 0% but when me charged it battery indicator 58% ..

  • DAv7 says:

    I’ve found a partial fix for the clock freeze issue.
    So, tha freeze happens randomly, but only, when the phone is in deep sleeping mode, and thats the key.
    Im using my phone as an alarm clock, so it’s important to me.
    I’ve found an app called RedEye. Basically, you can set waking states for an event(Like you can keep your phone “awake”, while it’s connected to a charger, or you can disable the “awake” when its’ battery is low). I’ve tried it out, and works.
    I just only set keep the phone awake, while it’s charging. I’m always charge my phone at night, so it’s okay for me.

    There is the app:

    • Kenneth says:

      Yeah i tried this aswell. Have been using RedEye for a month now and it has fixed my alarm problems 🙂

      • Bipsen says:

        Will it still work if I disable the notification through App info?

        • DAv7 says:

          I think thats what makes this app running in the background all time. If you turn it off it will may not work. Try it out and make a quick comment with the result 🙂
          As i read from the newest Carbon’s posts, it seems that in the new version theres no problem with the clock. I’ll try it out tonight, and report it tomorrow morning 🙂

  • Guilherme Oliveira says:

    How do I disable ligths lib Cm11 without using the app bln Control

  • Alan says:

    Hey! I have an issue. Phone heats up after 10 minutes of using it. 3G is on, so is Wifi. Is there a fix for that or is it a regular issue in this rom? Thank you.

  • Guillermo says:

    Hello Maclaw and friends

    First of all, Congratulation for your works

    I have a Samsung smartphone GT-I8190L, I installed the KIT KAT version 4.4.2 with CyanogenMod 11.0 but wifi Direct and screen cast application doesn’t work, in the beginning I had installed the version 4.3 with CyanogedMod 10.2 in this option wifi direct works well but screen cast doesn’t exist.

    At this time, I have a KIT KAT version Installed but regarding to WIFI Direct and screen cast incidents. Do you thinks that is a problem from specs of Samsung smartphone or I need to configure something in the smartphone.

    Thanks in advanced for your reply

  • Ozzy says:

    Clock Freeze with this Update. Hasn’t been for a long time until now.

  • This compilation went from crap to nightmare, batt drain at incredible fast rate, constant reboots, booting at safe mode, hey even my battery it’s screwed, because the phone got overheated and the battery inflate but I still love you guys!

    • JustinoMora says:

      Exactly. Some say problems come form CN.

      My phone is usless if not connected to the electricity.

      If I unplug, phone shuts down and start looping at reboot.

      Even going back to 20140328 did not solve issue.

      Looks like the 20140331 has son problems at sensing charging.

      Let see what comes next. I am getting ready to to a Factory Reset to see if my problems got away.

  • dongiello says:

    Hey guys, I’m experiencing a partial wakelock with this release, “StartingAlertService”, keeps the phone awake 100%. Anyone else experiencing this? Apparently, it’s calendar related, but I never had this problem before with any release.

    Appreciate the help…

  • hanalover says:

    I’m having intermittent issues with online charging which was much better with the pre-NovaFusion releases. Anybody else? In addition, the additional pages of the GoogleNow launcher keep disappearing after a reboot and appear again after the next. Last but not least: Are you planning to go back to a daily release cycle?

    Other than that: Excellent work! Keep it up!

  • john says:

  • A. P. says:

    Random shutdowns still occur, made me late for work today (no alarm).

    • J.B says:

      I had the same issue of forced shutdowns all time even after reverting back to the previous build, so I backed up my apps in twrp and i did a fresh install of cm and gapps and then once both installed I did a factory reset and then installed my backed up apps I created in twrp, in 2 days i have had no shutdowns at all.
