RELEASE for S3 Mini

    • calzadath says:

      After the Nova installer finish, remove mark in the reboot check button. Then you back to the TWD, select Wipe Dalvik/cache and do wipes. Finally reboot.

    • WhiteWolfSix says:

      If I want to do a clean installation, I do Factory Reset before installing new ROM. You can do that simply by clicking on Wipe in TWRP then Swipe to Factory Reset. You don’t need to go into Adwanced Wipe or Format Data sections.

      New Nova installer do Dalvik/Cache wipe automatically when you reboot after installation of a new ROM, so you don’t need to untick Reboot option to do it manually after installation process.

    More battery life please

  • Alan says:

    I use Rom Toolbox Pro to set the governor as abyssplug with I/O scheduler = sio. As of the Oct 11 image, my choice is not preserved across reboot, despite checking the “Apply on boot” box. Can someone explain and possibly suggest a workaround? (yes, I know, I could try to remember to make the change after every reboot…)

  • Andy says:

    Hi there,
    I installed the 1014 cm11 on my wife’s s3 mini.
    So far it’s a really great software, but I do have some issues.

    First there was a problem with sending sms. It was not possible to send or receive, then I made a clean installation and restored all apps with titanium backup. No its working great.

    In the evening I saw that it made 2 or 3 reboots in one minute, than it worked fine again.
    Do you know that issue?? Any help for that?

    Someone has a problem on the agenda, it does not show all contacts!

    • In the Contacts application . Press button options.
      Import / Export.
      Then import contacts from sim card
      If the problem is you do not see the contacts.
      There is an option in which you can choose to display all contacts

  • leodeo says:

    Hey novafusion, great work !
    But still there are some mayor bugs i’d like to report

    1.) since Version 20141012 the clock keeps freezing when display is turned of. Alarmclock freezes too.

    2.) since about Version 20141007 i get random reboots. The cm Logo appears with the arrow ging around it. It reboots much faster than if i would do a normal reboot. I also noticed it happens quite often when you usw the flashlight and turn screen off. When it goes through the random reboot i noticed the flashlight does not go off during that process.

    3.) since about all versions from one month ago i cannot Export any contacts to memory via vcard trough the phone APP.

    I do really appriciate and respect your work so please dont be offended by any written above.
