    Fixed the backlight bug? (Buttons light)

  • Ertan says:

    Omni rom update,please.

  • joseph molina says:

    why do i always get the 1ghz bug? i really want to use this rom

  • The only trouble I found is with the messages app… If a message arrives, and I answer it through quickreply the notification dissapear, but if I open the app and I see the message, the notification lingers and I have to close and open the app again in order to make the notification cease. It’s a little bit annoying when I’m getting a great number of messages and actually now I’m using the Hangsout app with sms but it’s not the same.

  • jhonga says:

    What is the backlight bug? (Buttons light) please tell me what that means :$ 😀

  • jhonga says:

    What governor and E/S do you use? I use interactive and E/S Noop i dont know what shoul I choose

  • boss says:

    What is diffrent between art and dalvik

  • Harry says:

    Governor and i/o settings always goes back to interactive and NOOP from abyssplug and SIO after reboot. I’am using ART from yesterday and i think it occur from time when i chosen ART. Anyone have similar problem?

    • Luke says:

      Go to Processor and I/O schedular and tick the box that says “set on boot

      • pecao says:

        This does not work. Every reboot it goes back to Interactive + NOOP.

        Also I’m having clock freeze problem with the last 3 releases.

        (Wiped Dalvik + cache, etc)

    Netflix case: I installed releases from 20140316, 20140326, 20140421 and 20140426 and none worked, the video does not display in the phone BUT as I use it to cast to Chromecast, just by selecting the device to cast directly, Netflix works great (on the TV of course)
    Thank you!

  • elbutchos says:

    Excellent work guys but I was using 21/04 before and now the trebuchet seems choppier and the 3G performance is way down compared to the old one.

  • martin says:

    SystemUi restart everytime using Google Newsstand and flipboard

  • Wellington says:

    Please vote for the best rom: Carbon, Slimrom or Omnirom
    To constantly upgrade

    • EccTM says:

      I think they are right to build CM the most frequently. CM is the most dependable ROM to build. There are standard practices in place, and every day there are new fixes, improvements and functionality added.

    • jeff says:

      each rom has a user and their favorite. it would be better to let it be. not to let the other roms to left behind for the update.

  • Demokrat says:

    I have GPS bug “it’s not working”

  • Elvitek says:

    Hello guys, how can I not bring up the drop down menu of notifications while the phone is locked? Thus, the block does not exist since I can go into the settings and in every part of the phone. . Sorry for my english.

  • JustinoMora says:

    I am sold on Abyssplug Governor and Sio Thing. How do I go about replacing Interactive? and where do I get them?

  • Elvitek says:

    Hi guys, you have to fix the bug where only the lock screen slide shows the menu of notifications, other types of lock screen does not show the menu of notifications and therefore does not turn on or off such as wifi or go to the settings. Thank you and sorry for my english.

  • Hugo says:

    Please my battery only work form three hours

  • Andrés says:

    are the random reboots ever gonna stop? i can’t even use data anymore without it being plugged even at 100% battery, same with wifi

    • piernov says:

      Same here, except I can’t have 100% battery because my phone won’t charge when it is turned on, (only charges in offline charge mode) and after turning it on I’m always under 97%. And since it doesn’t charge when It’s on, it keeps rebooting and battery level goes crazy. Sometimes it doesn’t even reboot.
      I’m also experiencing the clock freeze bug for a few weeks now (it happens regularly, every 2-3 days, when I wake up it is between 11pm and 5am).
      My phone is now nearly unusuable…
      PS: already did a full wipe and updated modem, nothing changed.

  • Hugo says:

    Your work ir amazing. Please need your help. I install this room and my battery only work three hours

    • Thomas says:

      Hope you have got a backup of an older CM11 release where you don’t have this problem. Restore your backup, make shure you have no problem and update from that to the current release.
      P.S. check that you have no 1gHz bug -> if you have: reboot with WIFI OFF

  • floris says:

    Hi Novafusion,
    Can u make a release of CM 11 for ace 2 to fix the long shutdown time an d the other bugs.

  • bonjing says:

    how about AOKP

  • Jypog says:

    Could you please fix the display and flickering issues for Carbon ROM, too?
    Thank you.

  • Marco says:

  • Ritvik says:

    I have this unintended reboot and shutdown issue for the last two weeks now. This update has definitely decreased the number I have per day but I still have that issue. I have done dalvik/cache clean and a clean install. But nothing works I hope you guys have a solution

  • Cirilo Rocha says:

    The youtube videos will not play

  • Aupatter says:

    Great work guys! Battery is much better now! Really enjoy what u do. Thanx 2 NovaFusion

  • mirko says:

    clock freeze it’s ok 🙂 but alarm clock don’t work when the phone is in sleep mode after 4 hours….fix it please and good work

  • harnis says:

    I think we all need a forum. not like XDA, but for users like us.

  • srecce says:

    Really awesome work!!!

    I just have a couple of issues. The screen brightness can not be set in AUTO mode. For some reason you need to set the brightness manually.

    The other one, is related with the new google camera app that has some interesting features (not to this rom)… when you tap on the config gear the app crashes.

  • kevin says:

    I’ve always had a problem with the battery I recharge the battery 2-3 times a day I get to last me more than 4 hours are like and if I do not use, download as if I were using almost the same speed

  • Adrian Parra says:

    Excellent Rom have a week using it and I’ve only encountered two problems.
    1 -. Le I connect the charger and it gets detected but not charging when plugged in and I use dismunulle load.
    2 -. Consume many megabytes to 100 daily.
