  • ArunS says:

    Installed Just now…at first sight everything seems to work, used faceunlock Working good.
    Used new dialer , its also working perfect. Some times there is delay in callUI
    Can really see the speed in this new rom.

    Will test the new rom and come back with finding

    Thanks Maclaw Team…

    • ArunS says:

      After Testing for 24 hrs i found these bugs which were present earlier as well

      Sometimes there is delay in IncallUI , ringtone comes first and after a delay of 5-10 secs InCallUI screen comes so that u can pick or reject call
      When u pick the incoming call, caller cannot hear your voice for atleast 5-6 seconds and then they can hear our voice. This issue does not exist when u make outgoing call, so issue is only for incoming call.

      3– Camcorder show dark videos while shooting, although after recording when u play the same video it is much brighter. so only preview while shooting video is dark

      4– Wifi direct is broken as ever

      After testing new rom for 24 hrs found this new features and improvements

      1 — the best one is face unlock which works perfectly

      2 — Over all speed of rom is good

      3– Facebook is opening quickly, earlier there was some delay in last rom

      Request Maclaw team to fix the IncallUI delay issue and wifi direct issue

      Desperately waiting for the F2FS feature for s advance.

      Thanks to Maclaw Team ..for your wonderful work for S advance

    • carlos mendoa says:

  • Kenchi says:

    I just wondering if you guys encounter any problem when you guys flashing the GAPPS 4.4.4 from the provided website.
    Because I’m facing insufficient space problem.

    Following are my step on flashing.

    Wipe All User Data > Wipe Dalvik Cache > Install Zip ( CM ) > Install Zip ( GAPPS )

    Any steps I have done incorrectly?
    Any solution resolving this?

    • ArunS says:

      I installed the gapps modular micro version 4.4.4 size was 90 MB and installed perfectly no low space issue

      • Kenchi says:

        thanks will try it again later. Update you again once i try it.

        • Kenchi says:

          I have tried for the Micro GAPPS and Mini GAPPS as well.
          Both indicate that I have insufficient space for that.
          required 98xxx KB, and only 48xxx KB are free.

          Any resolution for flashing the GAPPS?

          Current using
          4.4.2 CM version 11-20140211-unofficial-janice

      • Kenchi says:

        I have tried to flash it with the mirco ( 90MB ),
        it still stated as insufficient space,
        it says required 98403KB and only 43180KB available,
        I have even tried the mini version, it still having the same problem.

        Any solution for that?

        current phone spec
        ROM 4.4.2
        CM vers 11-20140211_UNOFFICIAL-janice

  • Pedro Igor says:

    Thanks team!

  • roberto12cr says:

  • zemc77 says:

    Why does Netflix refuse to work? The 1018 error persists. Is it unfixable?

  • thenathan30 says:

    Hello I have a big problem because when I launch my phone (s3 mini) with this rom I have a application who is big (freeze) so i can’t enter my pin because this message ‘The application : provider theme is not responding ‘ I click on ok but this message back always I click on ok and this to for the carbon rom.

  • Isabel says:

    Oh… it says offline charging works. What a pity, it’s too late for me. Tonight I went to sleep letting my phone plugged. But something happened, battery reached 0% I suppose, and now my phone won’t turn on… and as long as I had no offline charging, I can’t charge it… so it’s dead 🙁

    • pablot says:

      Similar problem over here, I can´t charge my battery!!!

    • TPD-KP3K says:

      That’s not totally dead, but it is the type of samsung devices like that, I guess. Try removing your battery. Then charge your battery charge it while using “desktop charger”, probably about 15 minutes. Then re-insert into your device.

      Do not forget, enable power saving profiles in the settings. Hope it helps.

      • Isabel says:

        It IS dead. It won’t charge. I cannot enable power saving because phone won’t turn on. I let it “charge” for hours and it has never turn on again 🙁

        • Rodmaux says:

          Don’t u can try a new battery?

        • zoltan says:

          I think your phone can charge its battery even if it swiched off. (I tried).
          So if your battery is in good condition (you can check it in another device or with a voltage multimeter) and you can charge it in another device such as a desktop battery charger in that case your device is really dead. But It is almost impossible unless it could get water or vapour before or simply the charger is dead. So I think this is a hardware malfunction… You wrote “something happened”.so it worked before.

        • TPD-KP3K says:

          Hmmm … Strange. Previously I had never encountered such a case you are experiencing it. But the galaxy belongs to my brother. GT-S6310. The solution had to pull the battery, and then recharge the battery using a desktop charger. And the device is active again.

  • XzzX says:

    I just switched to Cyanogenmod and there is one issue. The alarm clock doesn’t go off when the display switches off over night. The alarm rings as soon as I push any button to wake up the display. As you can imagine this is rather inconvenient. What did I miss?

  • Rajesh Mehra says:

    hi guys pls tell me can u all able to play 720P videos on your phones

  • DSeb says:

    Anyone tried ART? This is the first time I’m doing this, and after I did, it restarted, then it said Android was updating, and then it said com.android.systemui has stopped. The message kept on coming up, and I couldn’t do anything. Anyone having same problem?
    I somehow managed to get back to Dalvik, btw.

  • jonnathan venancio says:

    Hi, i hace a problem with netflix. When i play a movie or something, appear error 1018. I van not See anything. Anyone know how to solve it?

  • Rodmaux says:

    All works fine so far. Battery performance for me is better than last build.
    I can’t silence notifications from Skipe and Whatsapp. The photos taken still are named 1969-xx-xx and not 2014-xx-xx.
    Great job again!

  • errorsys says:

    I can confirm that all works perfectly. I didn’t find any problem with this build so far.
    Link to gapps I’ve used: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=44417509&postcount=1
    Get “MICRO MODULAR PACKAGE” (about 88MB)
    Good luck!

  • Dilip says:

    Guys, recently i have tried multiple custom roms on my advance and now i’m facing with the issue where in i get the following error with my network “Not registered on network”. I have searched internet for solutions but couldn’t find any answer as of now.

    I have to connect to mobile network manually every time and that’s a big pain. If any one of you had already faced this issue and know the solution to fix this, do let me know!! Thanks in advance!!

  • Valyum says:

    After approximately 6 days by use this build, I found two problems.1:after just 48 hours, ram is almoste full.I’m not use options “Backgound process limit” set to “At most 4 processes” just only “Perfomance > Memory managment > Kernel samepage merging”.2:themes.I have a few themes that I use.The problem is when i reboot, custom theme partially change the default (HOLO).Must do a trick to activate it on the preferred.This behavior is valid for all.I found on XDA it’s a problem between xposed and CM.Problem was reported devs and creator of xposed.rovo69.Otherwise, very stable and no other problems.Thanks team ! 🙂

  • ArunS says:

    Found one more bug, i don’t know if this problem is for me or everyone, when u shoot a video and press stop , camera app crashes, video is saved and can be played on phone, but when u transfer the same to computer it doesn’t play, Try clearing app data for camera and clearing cache , but same result, video cannot be played when transferred to computer. Tried google camera app, this one doesn’t crashed after pressing stop button button , but same this video can be played on phone, but when we transfer to comp, u cannot play it.

    Maclaw Team please check …thanks for super nice rom, i love the “headsup” feature for notification

  • Tolis says:

  • Vadim says:

    Good job. But there are still some problems. For example sometimes smart phone goes out of sleep mode. Sometimes a reboot. Optimize the kernel for improvements to the battery and system stability. Very well, thank you for a great product!

  • Tama Vehemental says:

    Thanks! This is wonderful! But I’m having a weird issue: if I move the phone even a little while charging, the charging stops :S Can it be related to the settings of motion sensors? What can I do to be able to charge even if it moves?

  • Darcik says:

    No news about move app to SD? 😛

  • Rabi says:

  • CM11 comment) says:

    The most stable version for CM11 was 01.06.2014. This is the best release of all. Want a flawless robots and in the next release CM11. Optimize the kernel stable robots in games. Noticeable lag with graphics in games such as Smash Hit. Kernel copes poorly with their task in the games, and the battery goes very quickly. Make support NFC. Make filesystem f2fs. Thank you for your attention.

      So time to change ROM, because bugs in this relase are annoying. 😛

  • Hello NovaFusion! Thanks for supporting our some outdated device. Nobody but you do ROMs for us. Thank you!

    Recently, August 3rd, released CyanogenMod M9. When you plan to build the ROM for SGS S Advance (janice)?

    With best wishes,

  • Vadim says:

  • Ni55aN says:

    How to enable WebGL?

  • Pros:
    1. Fast..Smooth..Beautiful
    2. Can apply Theme
    3. ART mode working
    4. All sensors working

    1. Screen wake up delay in incoming call.
    2. No Screen wake up for incoming notification (Installed dynamic notification but still delay is there).
    3. No screen wake up after long call (Need to press home button to get option to hang up ).
    4. No HDR in stock/google camera

    Please fix the cons in next build..Thank you!!

  • Manoj says:

    The ROM is really awesome and I appreciate the work of developer but I think you should update at least once a month. I understand the main device here is S3 mini but we would love to get the new features sooner 🙂

  • ArunS says:

    Cannot connect phone to computer via USB , I hope this issue will be resolved in next release, hope to see next release soon

  • ArunS says:

    Hello everyone one very interesting thing found to improve s advance performance and i know many of the members here might already know about this but just for those who don’t know, There is a app called RAM Expander by rohesoft and i have installed it and believe me, my phone is working super smooth, The developer of the Ram Expander claims that it will not increase your phone’s RAM but create a swap on your external SD card and then it will swap apps used randomly from there. I am using a sanDisk Ultra Class 10 U1 16GB memory card and believe me by using “Ram Expander app” , i can really feel as though someone has added extra 2 GB ram to my phone. The swap create for me automatically by this app is 1881 MB , so i have lost 1881 MB memory from external SD but gain very huge performance from my s advance,

    For those who also want to try must have at least class 10 memory card and this app “ram expander”

    Best of luck and try….

    Maclaw Team seriously waiting for a new release from you guys, please don’t forget S advance. I thanks you for giving such a nice rom. i hope to see new version soon.

  • Ashish says:

    Please make it official ROM.. Please cm11 team

  • Ashish says:

    I agree with all the pros.. 🙂
    Beautiful ROM .. Make it official

  • Ashish says:

    Ya same happened with me

  • Akash says:

    Has the Maclaw team stopped working on CM for S advance?? Really need an upgrade…lots of problems need to be fixed

  • ArunS says:

    I think they have stopped working on S Advance and we have to find another developer….

    • ArunS says:

      Hello maclaw team as there is no release for s advance since 2 months, i believe you have stopped working on s advance, even if u r thinking of dropping s advance from your work, i request to at least fix the Video recording app where App FC , when u press stop while recording. this bug is a CM11 Bug and is fixed in newer version, so can we at least expect you to fix this as other small bugs are less important.
