RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New release (20140722) of CM11.0 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!

  • John Aguiar says:

    Hi guys!

    Thanks for the great work, but…

    * The layout of the buttons on the dialing screen is bad after installing updates from the recovery.
    * The battery lasts a very short.
    * The device loses signal frequently and need to restart to reconnect to the network.
    * Please enable some option to increase the resolution of contact pictures.
    * The “Search phone” option is disabled after installing updates from the recovery… ¿how do I enable it again?
    * Please enable any option to lock the desktop icons to not move or delete icons accidentally.
    * Some Apps (Like GO Backup & Restore) not recognize the external memory card.

    😀 Maclaw you are THE BEST ! i leave this rom for a while 🙁 🙁 i send 4 email 😀 yesterday 😀 and i’d like to know what is the new kernel going to do??? xd and what that means? 🙂 and somebody can explain me what is a kernel? (with your own words i dont like wiki xd) SORRY FOR THAT SILLY QUESTION AND FOR MY ENGLISH HAHAH

    • Joseph Rich says:

      the kernel is something the communicates between the hardware and the operating system as I am guesting Samsung is not release change in the kernel and there are breaking the law of the GPL licence and trust me they don’t want FSF (free software foundation) getting on them? TRUST ME

  • Cirilo Rocha says:

    when will update the linux kernel 3.0.101 to 3.4 or 3.6 or 3.10?

  • robert17 says:

    Has anyone installed? Any issues? Whats New? 😀

    • Coshyloco says:

      Creo que en si nuevo parece que nada yo la instale porque tenia mucho que no actualizaba y ya tenía errores pero hasta donde veo al menos no tiene ningún bug grande más que los conocidos.

    • Kaan says:

      I don’t know is it related with this update but now my phone doesn’t consume electricity

  • Ciasny Wiesiek says:

    phi, it`s nothing. i think about gorilla glass, IP68 dust & waterproof and Iridium FDMA i TDMA connectivity.

    But I`m asking for facts.

  • Cypek27 says:

    “First part of big hardware patch rework” – I sense unstable release (until last part of this patch). I’m still waiting for milestone :3

  • BWD4 says:

    Hey guys. Can upload the roms and files in other servers? Like Mega or Zippyshare.
    The downloads from this page are corrupt ever for me! D:

    Sorry for my english ( .-.)

  • Adrian says:

    Anyone having issues with Google play service. It said aGoogle play not compatible with my phone

  • Rezso says:

    Very extreme battery drain….

  • Jo says:

    ** Dear anybody who can help me 🙂 I have some issues with my phone (the mini). Does anyone of you know a good place to ask for advice? It’s about programs/widgets disappearing all of a sudden, and some stuff I don’t know what caused it.

    ** When I try to install this ROM, I get an error message “Can’t install this package on top of incompatible data. Please try another package or run a factory reset”. After which my phone becomes unstable as hell as I can’t do more than a factory reset and clean install. Help! That sucks. 🙁

    • Carlos says:

      You updated the TWRP??
      Tried by odin??
      Wipe everything except sd, spends f2fs cache, install the ROM, DATA happens to f2fs and reboot.

  • Ozzy says:

    yeah osrc uploaded an update for us :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • elbutchos says:

    This includes kernel update also ?

  • Raul says:

    Here you go M&M this is the reward for such a hard work you do. Our community is big 😉


  • txemafocus says:

    ya tenemos el kernel e recibido correo de Samsung pero no se muy bien cual elegir como lo hacemos Nova?

    • Fex says:

      No, todavía no está el kernel. Samsung sólo dijo que lo va a estar poniendo disponible en algún momento pero ni siquiera dieron precisiones de cuando.
      Una vez liberado, esperemos, los desarrolladores lo van a incorporar a la rom. Es una muy buena noticia la de Samsung, pero los resultados no son inmediatos.
      Paciencia amigo.

  • Thomas says:

    🙂 unbelievable fast – I guessed it would take them weeks to release the code.

  • Pifou says:

    Does anyone has battery issues?

  • eu recebi o email da sansung confirmando o novo kernel para download.


  • Julian Cohen says:

    Si esta actualización del kernel hace que vuelvan a incorporase los botones de abajo SOY MUY FELIZ!! No tengo mucha idea si esto puede mejorar mucho mas duracion de bateria y rendimiento, pero como ya dije, con los botones de abajo SOY FELIZ!!

    • twhite1195 says:

      por que que vuelvan los botones de abajo? si no te funciona es por q o tu dispositivo esta dañado o hiciste algo mal… a mi me han funcionado en todos los releases desde hace un año

  • Julian Cohen says:

    If this kernel update makes return to incorporate the MENU and BACK buttons, I AM VERY HAPPY!
    I have no idea if this can be too much to improve battery life and performance, but as I said, with the buttons below I’M HAPPY!

  • American Exterminator says:

  • txemafocus says:

    cuando e puesto a cargar el teléfono al llegar al 100% se desconecta solo…….Nova mirar que la nueva actualización no tenga ese problema……. impaciente por probarla…..saludos y buenos días en Eepaña.

  • Florian Latifi says:

    Samsung could have uploaded the newer ANF6 kernel instead of ANF3 but at least they did something 😀

  • Bumdamub says:

    Should i wait for a update on the improvements or i install the opensource codes? Help

  • Btiushia says:

    I think novafusion focused on that kernel. No post in 2 days

  • Vadim says:

    Please do not forget about the Samsung Galaxy S Advance

  • Greatrol says:

    Some time ago I have installed the CM11 of Maclaw while still Android 4.4.2 update stop for lack of time for my work, now I see that Android 4.4.4 is now so ask in the forum if it was another method for update (4.4.2 CM1 to CM11 4.4.4) answering me some it was the same, lower the 715 version and install it in the same way but I came to restart the message “Unfortunately, the issues stopped provider” and not let me do anything because it still appears
    How to fix this?

    To install CM11 Carbon from 4.4.2 as I have to give?

    I can move from Carbon to CM11? if so how to do it?

    Thank you in advance for your support

    Excuse my English of Google

  • Belphegory says:

    Anyone else not able to install WhatsApp?? I just dont have the same amount of contacts on Telegram as I do on WhatsApp…..Any ETA on the problem guys?

    Otherwise great work…and I sense your busy little bees with the new update from Samsung.

    Looking forward to the new kernel release!

  • Coshyloco says:

    me hace pensar que el hecho de que no nos comenten nada y no pongan ninguna entrada referente al nuevo kernel Liberado es que están trabajando duro y nos tienen una Super Milestone de sorpresa :’) ojala no me equivoqué.

    • Carlos says:

      Para mi todo a trabajado muy bien excepto la cámara. Aun las fotos no tienen la misma calidad de la rom stock, sobre todo en interiores, de noche, usando el flash. La diferencia es muy grande.

      Mi esposa aun tiene la rom stock y comparo mi teléfono con el de ella y el mio supera en casi todo al de ella, el unico inconveniente que noto es en la calidad de las fotos y videos.
