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!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

  • Max says:

    I would like to make a suggestion for a poll on which ROMs are most important.
    Because right now you support many different ROMs but not all of them equally (understandably)
    Personally I would say to focus on about 3 ROMs maximum.
    My personal choice would be CM11, Carbon, SlimROM/KAT
    Other users might disagree. Therefore we should vote!

  • matheus says:

    A guy said that if disable lockscreen notification there’s no more battery drain. Someone tested it? I’m not with carbon anymore becaude of the battery drain.
