RELEASE for S3 Mini
SlimROM 4.4.2

New release (20140423) of SlimROM 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!

    PAC ROM please
    Pac ROM please

  • Celal says:

    many thanks from Turkey.

  • Frank says:

    It is really slick and fast. And impressively little battery use. Waow. When the camera is fixed I am switching from CM to this as my main OS. Smacks Omnirom by far, at least currently. Which surprised med. Thanks, Nova team.

    • Habiel latief says:

      How is antutu score?

      • RGoldBR says:

        Thanks, Nova Team!

        My average cpu percentage goes around 6% when the phone is just sitting idle. I’m seriously divided between this rom and Omni (love both!).

        @Frank: I’ve just grabbed a free Nexus camera from Playstore. Works fine.

        @Habiel: My score is 9750.

  • Dave says:

    No phone network. Can fix, M&M?

  • karim says:

    Awesome stable work as usual, one issue; no network signal. other than that it is an awesome ROM and also can’t access settings\more\mobile networks, its blank. other than that fast and smooth ROM. thank you guys for your hard work. YOU ROCK.
    PS. can you make a MIUI ROM for s3 mini 😀

  • Tevfik says:

    Waiting… Please

  • Jarek says:

    No phone signal here too.

  • Jarek says:

    Unfortunately the phone does not work. Also the camera does not work. It says “Application has stopped”. Besides this, SlimROM is great! It would be perfect to fix these issues!
