  • maxmor says:

    First of all, I would like to thank you for creating this site and this amazing job porting all the ROM’s to S3mini and keep this site so organised, keep going!
    I Installed this version (20141019) yesterday morning and unfortunately had a clock freeze today (the night was OK, it freezed at work at 9:35)…pity.. I liked the ROM, will have to return to stock ROM. Until now its the only one i can rely on. Do actually all custom ROM’s with 4.4.4 like AOSPA, Cyanogenmod and so on here use the same Kernel so the bug would probably stay no matter what ROM I try as long as there is the same Kernel or is it worth to try another ROM? Is this a Kernel problem at all? Are there any investigations?

    applying galaxy s3 / s5 wallpapers wasabi device fails … Please check this problem

  • Gustavo says:

    Hi, this ROM can be installed on a mini S3 i8200?

  • offline charging not working!!!

  • AterCZ says:

    Offline charging works with /system formated f2s.
    BUG: I let my battery die(wanted to format it) and then I tried if the offline charging works. I plugged in the charger and it booted into the offline charging mode no problem. After like 5 seconds I unplugged the charger, let it turn off and then I turned it on. Right after the first vibration when the phone starts I plugged in the charger. Then I just let it boot normally, insert my pin and walked away. After like 30 mins I came back to check my phone and it said 0 percent battery, charging. When I unplugged the chargher it shut down instantly. When I plugged it in and got into offline charging mode it showed that quarter of my battery is filled, so I unplugged my charger and booted my phone normally. After that it was working alright.

  • Kevin says:

    I keep having incoming calls appearing formatted incorrectly as +XXX XX XX X instead of (XXX) XXX-XXXX. This results in the phone trying to call internationally when I try to return a call, so I have to retype all the numbers! Any idea how to fix this?

    Also, any idea how to force the lock screen to require the OK button to be selected (instead of just unlocking when the right pin is entered) – this is a security risk!

  • ahmad says:

    Hi. I have a problem with this rom. when I disable backlight of buttons it work properly, but after the screen locked and off and a message is receiving the backlight of buttons is constantly on. (excuse me, my english is very bad)(I’m from iran)

    • Kai says:
