I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors 😉
Thanks.

    • lecola-light says:

      Nereden kazanıyomuş o paraları tıklamadığın google reklamlarından mı? Git resmi cyanogen destegi olan bir telefon al o zaman. Liseli gibi türkçe küfür et millete amk.

    • enes says:

      beyler ayıp ediyorsunuz. “bile bile çözmüyor” ulan siktirgit öğren yazılımı dene bakıym kolay bişey mi? adamın siteden doğru düzgün para kazandığı yok. hanginiz basıyonuz amk reklamlara. çocuk olmayın siktirin gidin samsung yazılımı kullanın. changelog gayet iyi. mtp. video coder gibi şeyler kolay değil. adam bunu para için bile yapmıyor adamın hobisi.

      • Anonimderp says:

        Benim yerime yazdığın için saol 😀 böyle küfredenlerin hepsi çocuk gibi görünüyo harbiden burdan yorumu okuyanlar tarafından. Emeğe saygısı olmayan program yazmayı bilmeden başkasının yazdığına laf edien çocuklar gibi

    • Anonimderp says:

      Klasik cevabım: senin yapacağın daha iyi rom u sabırsızlıkla bekliyorum.

  • joaofsa2000j says:

  • Παύλος says:

  • seyit says:

    bug bug bug ! no stabile yes bug yes donate no rom maclaw wtf?

  • nico666x says:

    The solution for playing videos with MX Player was my idea and post it here days ago

    • tommy prud'homme says:

      you aren’t the one who got it first, neither am i. it was suggested months ago by someone else. maybe i dont get what was the goal of your comment, but claiming that such a simple idea was yours for no (clear) reason is not much usefull.

      thanks much maclaw, your hard work always impress me 😛 i hardly manage to wait for a (almost) flawless release such as cm10.2//cm11 . i kinda look at this blog 3 times a day looking for an update :D. rom isnt perfect but quite good. i like it much and even if its not perfectly “stable”, i use it daily with almost no problems. even if its not “stable”, it’s clearly better than stock . CLEARLY! 😛

      i personnally get insulted of ingrateful comments for something nobody pay you for

      Keep up the good work! 🙂

    • Me says:

      You’re so special

    • j1999 says:

      well congrats then. im proud of you son

    • Samet Akcan says:

      Two points to you

  • enri19 says:

    Is this ROM better than carbon or cm11? I’m kind of tired from some bugs on previous releases, I don’t care about the video bug, has this rom improved in stability, battery duration, efficiency? For me these are important aspects. I appreciate your answers.

  • Rodolfo K. says:

    Guys, two questions:

    How is battery life?

    Does MTP work in this release?

  • eishi says:

    I am very anxious waiting for you to repair the problem of video in green, so I can use lollypop every day on my cell . Thank you very much for all the work they have done . 🙂

  • Ricks says:

    USB connection to PC still not working 🙁

  • Tyler says:

    Release is not actually stable, no offline charging, random crashes, bugs everywhere etc, so all complaining about people complaining, what’s the point when what they say is correct? However this is a very good ROM and its getting there, there is still a strange prescense of flicker and tearing. Using as daily ROM and its doing good but can also be a pain at times too.

    • Tyler says:

      Also something I find strange, in call volume is very low, signal becomes bad within 2 minutes then the call will cut off, dial back and suddenly the in cal volume and signal is fine until the phone is restarted, then the process repeats?

  • HesH says:

    How can I use s3 built in Radio?

  • eishi says:

    Novafusion new release with good changelog.I dont think you work with full effort please work much harder.

  • Leonard says:

    Hi guys,

    thanks for the new version.

    Before i install the update – some questions:

    – Is USB working ?
    – Is Power-Off charging possible ?
    – Can I change the Lockscreen-Wallpaper ? <- Would be a very cool Feature 🙂

    Thanks a lot, you saved my S3mini …. I had nearly 2 years the stock rom and i hated my phone at all – now i love it 😀

  • Serdar UZUN says:

    Copy Paste ChangeLog….

  • Leo says:

    I still experience some tearing especially when gaming.
    USB is not working.
    Game Killer, Freedom, etc. not working for Lollipop.

    Other than that good release. Would really like to see the new Camera2 API so we can manually control our camera, and take photos in RAW format.

    Hope we get that soon.

  • Dexter says:

    Thanks NF!

    Are you working on S Advance CM12? I’m still waiting but you promised and it was a long time ago. 🙁
    Please! 🙂

  • omri says:

    I would like to hear from you, guys, what is the best way to backup my phone before updating to CM12?

    • hedgehog says:

      You can use Titanium Backup to backup individual apps and their data and you can make a Nandroid Backup of the entire phone from the recovery.
      Personally I use both (backup changes to apps every week using TB and do a monthly/ pre-flash Nandroid backup in case I fuck up bad and the phone won’t boot).

    • BACKUP…..THE RECOVERY

  • NUTCHER says:

    when I play SOM GAME I HAVE TEARING PLEASE FIX . IT SHOW FROM FISRST LOLIPOP RELEASE
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK

  • Don’t work offline charging, and some reboot.

  • skinny P says:

    same bug, when i try to sign in into tumblr it said; “unfortunaly, Tumblr has stopped”
    any one with this problem? maybe some magic lines, please help

  • Bruno says:

    Great work guys, thank you very much for doing this porting.

    I just would like to report an issue with the USB that I’m having with CM12 on my S3 mini: The MTP driver in windows can’t load, doesn’t matter what I try. In the device manager, it says that the driver is ok, but that it cannot be initialized, with the error code 10.

    I flashed back the stock 4.1.2 and the usb MTP driver was loaded properly right on the first try without changing anything else on windows. Flashing back CM 12, going to settings -> storage -> usb computer connection, and changing from MTP to any other option, be it MTP or Charge Only, gives me the error “Unfortunately, Settings has stopped.” and the only option is “ok” (with or without an usb cable connected to the PC). With that, I believe that the problem is really related with the USB controls on the CM12 port.

    For now, I’m still using CM12, but doing file transfer only via wireless.

    Once again, thanks a lot for this great work of yours.

  • Max Klein says:

    Great!
    What about a pushbullet channel? I’m currently using your rss feed, but a pushbullet channel is easier, faster and cooler 😀
    You could set up the channel with the rss feed so its only very little work!

    Thanks!!

  • Attlantis says:

    Hello,

    Sorry but my S3mini stay on blue android face and circle flashing … what ‘s this problem ?

  • javier says:

    En la version N no funciona. Se queda pillado en el logotipo

  • Hi NF , thanks a lot for the new release but I have two problems
    1 the WiFi direct doesn’t work at all
    2 there are no built in radio and I googled it but I didn’t found a trusted
    one so if somebody have a trusted URL just tell me
    and thanks again

  • MTP doesn’t work, hotspot freeze the phone, some random reboot, the phone is pretty slow but the worst fault is the signal…. sometimes there is no signal and you must reboot.
    I hope you fix it, but thanks for your great work, without you my phone would be dead long time ago 😀

  • ezaxsah says:

    Guys I really need help. So I finished installing and im off to downloading the gapps but before the download even started something pops up saying that the software in my samsung s iii mini is out of date and offers me to install an app (Z launcher?) to fix the problem. I think its not a problem in the site since I tried mirrors and tried to download some other stuff but still same problem. Any ideas/advices?

  • drozoneml says:
