Im not good at english but, wat wipes i need to perform?
I wiped only cache and it works perfect
this is no a beta? i will download to try fix the usb problem, thx nova <3
no.. when i setting Mtp, the phone crash
Cyanogen Inc. Stops the support to de Samsumg S3,this affect your works?
The answer is clearly no, because it does not look like this advancing to be a stable rom rom ??
The CM is that as have many phones that support and provide facilities for samsung not releasing the code, they are forced to abandon these mobile by the difficulty to make them work properly. But NovaFusion team, despite not having the source code, make a great effort to obtain the stability of the rom
Spanish / Español:
La respuesta es un claro no, ya que no ves como esta avanzando la rom hasta ser una rom estable??
Lo de CM, es que como tienen muchos moviles que soportar y los de samsung no dan facilidades liberando el codigo, se ven obligados a abandonar dichos moviles por la dificultad de hacerlos funcionar correctamente. Pero el equipo de NovaFusion, a pesar de no tener el codigo fuente, hacen un gran esfuerzo por obtener la estabilidad de la rom
S3 is really different device. S3 mini did not any support from Cyanogen.inc ever. S3 have different hardware.
not affect anything because NOVAFUSION carry handles Cyanogen source code (Mod) and compile it for our s3 mini
No it doesn’t affect them, and the s3 is a complete different device
+1 please tell us something about
If it isn’t in the features list, why are you still asking? It does not support f2fs. If you use it, you’ll stuck on a bootloop.
It is a proper question.
He is not asking if it is supported or not. He is asking if it is in their to-do list (if it will be supported in a near future). And that is a doubt of mine as well.
It was already mentioned sometime ago – it is under development. So stop asking.
How would you all feel if I will ask you each minute when you give my my pen back?
I don’t think it is the same thing about asking about the pen.
It’s been mentioned some time ago that it was under development. And now it’s not on Features list neither on Issues list. So maybe it’s not under development anymore.
Are you (saygone) one of the developers? If so, would you please tell us about it? Is it under development, or it’s been left behind?
If you are not, don’t take this question as an offense. It’s not for you.
Not supporting f2fs isn’t an issue. If your pc’s motherboard does not support more than 2 gb ram, it is not an issue. That’s the way it was made. So, if not on the feature list, it’s still under development.
That is the question. Is it under development, or just left behind?
Where did you get the information that it’s under development?
Anything else that I can help you with?
It doesn’t mean that.
Just for curiosity. Are you a developer?
novafusion is the best õ/
Thank You =)
Stable?!! That quick?!!
I’ll flash this right now and be back with a review 🙂
Cool!!! Thanks Nova Fusion
i will on board if F2FS support will be integrated
Will I have to perform a full clean in order to update CM11 to this one CM12?
it’s almost perfect for me, but still can’t connect with Pc… =/
but is getting better and better =)
Thanks thanks <3 But unfortunally it doesnt solve my problem with the reboot by locking the Phone :S But nonetheless Great Work again 🙂
It keeps saying encryption failed 🙁
Have tried to install again and again but still same result.
I had a problem like this you will have to restore your s3 mini with stock ROM through Odin to fix this
Basically put your device back to when you first got it
Wifi direct, offline charging and video playing not working 🙁
WiFi direct won’t gonna work, because Samsung didn’t shared their softs for it.
To me, it never worked (I always had to use Super Beam.Have you tried it?)
I’m waiting this release thnx:)
Hi i know this doesn’t belong here but are you updating your TWRP to version 188.8.131.52
Wow… You’re awesome!!
it is very heavy and not smooth 🙁
how long ist the first Start after Instalation?, the s3 boot now a very long time (2.5 hours),
ihope anyone can help me please
Kernel update? Kernel version ?
I’m unable to download
neither do i
When I go to Downloads and select this software the download button doesnt work (it is simple text)… I tried the other buttons and they worked!!!
Never Mind… I dont know how but it just works now!!! BTW thanks for all your work nova team
– Can not install applications from foreign sources (previously it was on CM 12 :O )
– USB not working with PC

– random reboot
“Settings-Phone -On The Phone-CyanogenMod uptades- NO NEW UPDATES.”

Tested. It does work. =)
Flickering 🙁 please fix NovaFusion
Usb storage not working, massive battery drainage but great work team
Sorry my English derived from google . I still can not connect via USB , also can not have access to the 3G operator LIVE BRAZIL .
Great job .
-mtp not working
-root not working (tested in file manager)
Flash the latest super SU beta from chainfire and if you’re updating your cm12 remember to update the binary and reboot.
And, is the mic working for stuff like ok google?or for voice notes while in apps like voice recording apps, whatsapp, Facebook Messenger?
OR get root access in developers’ settings and install SuperSU from the market. When it checks for root, leave SuperSU access. Better work, easier to do.
not work offline charging
so many bugs
Very buggy 😛
You should say “Thank you for your work”. If you want a more stable version, then go back to CM11 or (even better? idk) to stock. If you want the last OS, then keep the bugs in it.
anyone don’t read a sd card?
Great thanks! I only noticed crazy flickering
Works very well but camera videos all green, no root no usb storage, and some Flickering.
but well done NovaFusion
Keep the good work
I don’t notice any flickering
Novafusion said another release will be uploaded
They said they forgot some things

the flickering when you scroll on menus.
no video acceleration in the menu or just happens to me that?
it is better than before, but there are still lag
Snapchat is not working… Is it a camera problem?

Phone not booting, stuck on boot. I did the wipe, no luck. Please help
Found a fix for stuck on boot. Unsure that cache is formatted to ext4 and not f2fs. Unfortunately i got the encryption error now
me too, my phone stop on loop and not start, someone can help me?
Make sure there are no f2fs filesystem anywhere, also data needs to be ext4
Am I the only experiencing installation error ?
It takes a lot longer to install, compared to CM11 (like 10 minutes).
Maybe you are not waiting long enough.
Post the error you get. Maybe someone can help you.
My phone has been on booting animation for 30min after installing cm12 stable release…Is it normal?
Mine stays on cyanogenmod boot animation…any reason for that?
can TB restore app+data on this realease?
It works for me, just usb doesnt work the phone dont recognise the computer.
Thanks a lot 😉
+1 can’t connect to PC. Trying to change the setting for what the phone should do when connection to a PC results in a crash of the settings panel
Mobile data(3G) nota wooorkiiiing 🙁 but magnific work novafusion team, Thanks a lot!
wHERE CAN i DOWNLOAD GAPPS? gIVE ME THE LINK PLEASE !!

i dont have any mobile data service for some reason
When I start Spotify Music, my s3 mini reboot.
Could provide a rom for i8200l version because it has no rom for this style.
Phone not booting
Check if you have your partitions formated in ext4. If not, it’s no wonder your phone isn’t booting.
Other thing is you have to wait about 10 minutes in the first boot.
Tiene más bugs que la versión beta .-.
I’m so looking forwards towards the first Androi L based Carbon release from novafusion. His base probably will be mostly stable then and we’d have the nice Cabron features, too! 🙂
I’m not sure if I would like to have “Cabron” features in my phone… LOL!
Me too! I think we have to wait till the official Carbon Team releases. So far I haven’t seen any news on their website…
Is there any other buys apart from the video taken by camera being green. If not ill try the rom out since i want a pretty stable custom rom.
yes,it have more bugs,shit rom
usb transfer not working and many things in settings causes force close
Instagram crashes when trying to play a video
Crazy unbearable flickering
YouTube also doesn’t work
Good job, but in indeed the usb is not recognized on my PC, flickering when a scroll, and some menu are not in French. Many thanks and good continuation 🙂
Alarm doesnt work…
video share to facebook not workink
Please someone can help, yesterday I tried install CM12, but my phone was in Loop and don´t start. I returned to CM11, what I need do now to install CM12?
Which is stable and speed : ext4 or f2fs ?
Bom dia, sou do Brasil, meu 3G e USB ainda não funciona, fiz uma instalação limpa, mas continua a mesma coisa, tem alguma configuração a parte para fazer funcionar esses dois pontos? por que sem comunicação USB é impossível de usar!!!
Oi. Meu 3G da TIM está funcionando mas ainda não testei o USB.
Netflix app don’t work in any mod for S3 Mini…
Can you fix it?
– 3G still don’t work, operator(TIM Brazil);
– The phone reboots when i open spotify and when i try to play a video from the Cifra Club app.
– Everything else is good to me.
Many thanks for Cyanogenmod12 !
Bug that I see : USB don’t work on my PC, flickering, and some menus aren’t in French.
For those, who still have problems with the 3G, and videoplayback, try to wipe and install after it.
The Spotify now works without my little trick, and I’m able to play videos with MX Player using H/W or H/W+ decoders too.
I’ve also noticed a bit of flickering sometimes, usually when I try to scroll something.
I also want to report, that the newest Chrome has some issues, one part of the page appears on top of other parts for a few seconds. (this was a bug on CM11 too, in the early builds).
Now, I’m trying to make DSP Manager working with the ROM, because it provides a much more cleaner and better music than this AudioFX thingy.
Camera app icon is missing! How can I enable it to appear on the Apps screen?
Workaround: If you using trwp. Boot to trwp and mount the system partition. Use the explorer to get to system/app/GoogleCamera an delete all files (directories are not important). Restart Phone and install the camera app from play store again.
Android keyboard – sweep typing option does not work, trying to run Google keyboard causes phone reboot
app2sd is not working ?!
Unable to install( cant access updater)
Anyone can relate?
Fixed! Had to update TWRP 2.6.3 to 2.8.3!
Where did you find 2.8.3? In the download list only appears 2.8.0 and in TWRP official page the 2.8.3 is returning a very small file, which it’s bad
Where did you get 2.8.3? The download page on novafusion is 2.8.0 and the 2.8.3 on the official TWRP page the file is about 10k which is pretty wrong
external storage. can I install apk from sd now?
Where is the Gallery?
Gallery was replace by “photos” application. Google did it on Lollipop
Thanks, but.. USB doesn’t work.
The version of Lollipop January 13 MD5Sum mismatch
Updating partitions details…
Full SELinux support is present.
E:Unable to open zip file.

My usb debug foreclose , why , anybody know how fix it ?

USB dont work…
I can not install this release and the previous.

I can only install kitkat 4.4.4
Music app always crashes repeatedly. Ever since 31/12/14 rom and updates haven’t fixed it. I want a fix so bad ):

Great work here, and my compliments to everyone who has contributed to make this happen.
One problem I have notices that when in Google Photos I am constantly getting the error “Unfortunatly, the process android.process.media has stopped”
I have a problem, I installed this version with odin on my galaxy s3 mini and gets stuck in the image bot, any solution?
3G dont work.
Don`t work ADB
I tried to install the rom from TWRP but in the flashing progress I read “No file contexts” or “Skipping MD5 file content”. I don’t know what to do. I tried to install a couple of times but it says the same thing.
I did a factory reset from a CM11 rom.
Why camera icon does not appear?
Works 8190L ?
funciona no 8190L ?
how do you get rid of the white background in the app drawer without installing a different launcher, I know there was a comment a few releases ago on how to but I cant find it, anyone help? as imo it looks terrible 😛
When I want to change the USB Computer Connection from MTP to PTP the error window “Unfortunately, settings has stopped working” pops up. Can’t connect with my computer via USB :(.
Hey there, i cannot install cm12 because they say “no file_contexts”
I used ClockWorkMod Recovery 184.108.40.206 (CWMR).
I can’t record audio on WhatsApp anyone have the same problem?
I have a few questions about this:
1) If I want to update to a newer version, do I have to reinstall it completely like a new ROM or just auto update it from settings?
2) If I already have installed CM 11 (KitKat 4.4.4), may I install it the same way as I did from stock?
3) May I install it with Odin?
4) Is Google Play crashing / Is it working as it should?
i have a problem how to install Lollipop 5.0.2 (CyanogenMod 12.0) 20150113 stable
(sorry for the bad english I’am from german and i can’t speak english)
The reboots happen to me when data or cellular service is turned on. But now it happens to me with every ROM so idk what happened, it fist happened during a call. Anyone can help me.
It’s laggy and I get random reboots, also get troubles when I’m using Waze along with any music player, the volume raises itself to the point it gets distorted.
As you said, videos taken by camera are just green. Then, as mentioned many times, PC cannot recognize it, but you can charge it from your PC 😀 3G does not seem to work but slower internet connection(like edge) is working without any problems, Wi-Fi is ok as well. 🙂 In my case, if your battery is under 15%, phone starts rebooting. Overall, I am pretty pleaqsed with it, as it is kinda early build and it is working without any bigger problems 🙂
Great work, had a few initial issues with FaceBook and Youtube but clearing the cache again resolved that. Cast screen not working at all and 3G seems to not work. Keep going guys, what you do is great and we appreciate your hard work.
USB not Working…!!!!
how to access the root ??
thanks for your good work. But i have on question, Why can not move apps to the SD-card?
