  • Pleaseee fix the battery :C

    • Elias says:

      battery works fine for me 3 days..try battery calibration app and ondemand governor

    • Yoniverh says:

      it will never be fixed

    • Gerard says:

      I had problems with the battery and random reboots. I realized my battery was damaged, I bought a new one and the problems disappeared. Beware some do not last even a month because of poor quality. Try to buy the original or a good quality one.

      • Fex says:

        Same happened to me. Bought one for about USD 10, works fine.

      • goncalo says:

        Same happened to me too. Battery was even becoming deformed.
        I was having random reboots all the time and now it’s all Ok. I buyed an original battery from Samsung… I prefer to play safe when the subject is batteries…

        All working OK now.

      • goncalo says:

        I had the exact problem. My battery was even becoming deformed. I was experiencing several reboots, the phone didn’t last long… and the battery indicator was crazy, it showed like 20% of battery, then i had a reboot and when it finally turned on again it showed like 70%.

        I decided to buy a new battery (an original one from Samsung), and now everything is just fine. No reboots, battery is stable and lasts a full day.

    • Hacking67 says:

      I also have the same problem

    • Carlos says:

      Jesus a estas alturas la rom esta muy estable con el tema de la batería, mi batería va para dos años, tengo wifi encendido 18 horas al día, juego, llamo, respondo llamadas, mensajes y me dura cerca de 6 horas. Con la rom stock no me duraba ni 2 horas haciendo todo esto. Trata de cambiar la batería o prueba con otra.

      Busca de calibrarla, también da buenos resultados.

    • Kirill says:

      Battery works fine for me. i use ART, Hotplug and SOI

  • Santy says:

    The camera? Works Fine? In the previous releases camera crash too much!

  • Abidin says:

    Please release the AOSP Rom

  • robert17 says:

    Hey guys 😀 Any issues in this build ?

  • jessas says:

    Is PAC dead?

  • Cirilo Rocha says:

    The youtube is not in HD

    • Jo says:

      You can download a modded version of youtube which runs native HQ quality.

      But keep in mind S3 display is 480×800 pixels. Playing HQ video (720×1200) or HD (1080×1800) on our S3 mini will still play video in the same resolution: 480×800. So for image quality your feature-request is pointless.

    • ItsPeet:Carbon says:

      Is it HD in Stock ROM?

      • Jo says:

        I’m not sure, can’t remember.

        But Youtube HQ is mentioned in the list of features of THIS ROM, so people expect it to work.

        • ItsPeet:Carbon says:

          HD and HQ aren’t the same 😉

          • Jo says:

            I know. Doesn’t change the fact that Youtube HQ is mentioned in the feature list, so people expect it (what we was asking for: youtube in HD) to work.

            I first wrote another comment, but it was refused by admin.

            It contained this info:
            If you want to install youtube with that possibility, you are free to install this version.

            Display for S3 mini is pnly 480×800, so you can’t expect any advantage for playing youtube in 720×1080 or 1024×1800.

    • Cirilo Rocha says:

      I meant HQ

  • Ozzy says:

    hidden clock=?

  • Jorge says:

    Please can you do ROMs for de galaxy s3 SGH-I747 WITH ANDROID 4.4

  • Jo says:

    2 things:
    Can’t install. Forced to do a clean install after flashing failed. 🙁
    Why are so many of my comments deleted by moderation? I even didn’t say anything wrong.

    Guess it’s time to look out for a new phone. I don’t want to go back to Android 4.1 and this rom suck way too much battery and is taking too much time with unexpected clean installs. Makes it too unreliable for me.

    • Gustavo says:

      4.4.x gasta mas bateria que 4.1
      Yo siempre actualizo y no tengo mayores inconvenientes

      • Onniel Fernando says:

        tienes razón hubo un tiempo en el que use 4.4.2 sin ningún problema en cuanto a rendimiento de carga. creo que todo depende en la cantidad de aplicaciones que tengas en el teléfono, en cuanto a la nueva actualización la pantalla consume mas recursos que otros componentes, pues a pesar de que bajo el brillo a su totalidad, quito la iluminación de los botones táctiles, la pantalla esta siempre a un 67% de uso he venido viendo ese inconveniente desde 4.4.3

        • Carlos says:

          No digo que sea culpa del launcher, pero con google now launcher o trebuchet queda así el consumo de la pantalla, yo uso KK Launcher y me baja el consumo de la pantalla por debajo de 40%.

          Ademas tengo instaladas herramientas como clean master y battery doctor que ayudan en algo o quizás son las que disminuyen el consumo de batería.

          Desde hace unas versiones para acá whatsapp esta viendo a battery doctor como un programa conflictivo aun cuando tengo la app como ignorada.

      • Jo says:

        I’m sorry I don’t speak that language.

        • Zwenn says:

          Yep, me neither!

          • onniel fernando says:

            We have meant that some resources like trebuchet and google now launcher consumes more battery than other resourses, he has recommend me to use another launcher to get more battery stability 🙂

      • GerardoT. says:

        Si tu telefono ya tiene un año o está cerca del año de uso compra una batería nueva. probablemente la que tienes ya está dañada. No son caras entre 7-15 $

  • Jonk says:

    Is there a way to enable HD voice (AMR-WB)? Although it may need hidden service menu.

  • Yusuf says:

    hmm, works normally on my device, some issue fixed, good job! 😀

  • Carlos says:

    AnTuTu is an application that allows you to verify the performance of a mobile. Download it in the store play

  • jeffrey says:

    PhotoStudio Pro y Castle of illusion no se instalan, me dice que la aplicacion no pudo ser instalada, Whatsapp me da error al analizar el paquete

    • Claudio says:

      A mi me pasa o mismo con Whatsapp

      Happens to me as well with Whatsapp

      • Carlos says:

        Me paso igual desde hace unas 6 actualizaciones, siempre que actualizaba la rom el whatsapp me daba error. Mire la versión del teléfono y era superior a la que estaba descargando del play store.

        Tuve que que hacer una instalacion limpia y descargar whatsapp desde la pagina oficial. Ya no tengo problema con eso.

        Aunque a algunos no les pasa en mi caso era por usar art, con dalvilk no me paso nunca y se actualiza normal. Es mas, antutu me da 11000 con dalvilk y 9900 con art.

        • Carlos says:

          jeffrey has un respaldo y realiza una instalación limpia, borra todo excepto la sd e instala todo de nuevo. Cambia a f2fs cache y data, veras como se instalan todos tus programas.

          Si te funciona bien has un respaldo y cambia a art para que pruebes si es que no son compatibles con este virtual.

        • Juber says:

          A mi me pasaba lo mismo con whatsapp y el problema era ART, me devolví dalvik y se solucionó el problema…..

    • Thomas says:

      Also had problem with recent WhatsApp update. Error: not enough memory – although I’ve got more than 1GB free internal.
      The only thing helped was factory reset and installing the apk from the WhatsApp side as first app.
      Anyone had same problem or other solution?

  • Elias says:

    the lock screen not responds some times black screen after 3-4 sec all ok.

  • dyna says:

    Edit camera -> google camera

  • txemafocus says:

    yo ya estoy un poco cansado de actualizar dia a dia y no veo mejoras notables, el equipo novafusion realiza un buen trabajo sobre una base ya montada CM11 y soy de los que DONA para pagar servidores y no me importa por que creo que realizan buen trabajo, pero lo realmente importante no lo solucionan sigue igual o peor me refiero al tema del despertador alarma y creo que dejare nova para volver a rom stock o cambiare de teléfono, esperare unos dias pero creo que lo tengo decidido.

  • Wosman says:
