  • FrankBR says:

    The recovery twrp and default recovery dont work anymore since 20150126. I cant install

  • MarchellinoL says:

    how to download?

  • Eve Shime says:

    You should ALWAYS clean Dalvik cache/Cache after updating your ROM.

    You can’t have TWRP and default Android recovery installed at the same time. So how did you do it? lol

    • FrankBR says:

      I always wipe cache and dalvik before and after.
      I confused, is the download mode, not the original recovery. The fact is that I can not access any of the two, either through the reboot option, or the combination of buttons. I can not install anything now.

  • Rıdvan Önal says:

    what has changed ?

  • mikelancelo says:

    Aokp please. Thanks for everything. God bless you.

  • jomari says:

    Great work, I flashed it, but I go back to the previous version because of the theme settings and protected apps but great work thank you. I suggest/request to focus on the battery life more. thanks again!!!

  • GEORGE says:

  • Robbe says:

    Gerge did you wipe cache and davilk before reboot?

  • Wosman says:

    To Boot into recovery use Rashr and your problem is solved

  • Gonzalo says:

    Is f2fs really better? Has it better performace, life battery or what?

    • Hipp says:

      I have CM11 installed on f2fs …
      – The battery life time is less compared to stock samsung android (approx: CM11=20h vs. Samsung=36h)
      – The performace is similar, maybe felt a little better (but not really measurable)

  • Julián Andrés says:

    Hello… I can’t find battery saver mode :/
    I’m using this rom.
    Thank you if you can help me 🙂

  • Emanuele says:

    In this update is working offline charging?

  • didou says:

    can i get the updates directly to my phone manuelly ? i have the 24 01 2015 version of this rom when i try to update it say no new updates .

  • didou says:

    how to update from the last rom ( 24/10/2015) without reflash with TWRP ?

  • didou says:

    Noooo , offline charging not workig even in this last ROM on my phone .

  • Mark Dammer says:

    This is the ROM that made me to move from 10.2 to 11. Thanks Nova Team!
    I am only left with one question:
    How do I get rid of the annoying Google search bar on the home screen ? I am using KitKat with Trebuchet (not Google Now) as launcher together with the modular Google Apps pack. I tried several solutions I found on the web, but none of them worked.

    • cs4kn0rr1s says:

      Try another launcher (ex: Apex)
      Apex works great for me and has more customization options. (I did not updated for the latest versions with Android 5.0 menu button)

      • Mark Dammer says:

        thanks, but I will leave this as my last option. I’d rather tweak something at the standard installation. Isn’t the whole idea of CM to get away from Google dependence – and then this !
        I am not blaming Nova here, but this is a bit of a shame for the CM devs in my opinion.

    • druid23 says:

      Apex is great, but you can also disable doing this i tried right now, push menu button at home, on the lower part apears a buton like an arrow, it drag un configurations whete apears search bar

    • Mani says:

      If your problem is still alive, try this; When you are in the main home screen, or opening screen, just click the 3 lines button at the bottom left of your phone( not inside the screen). Then from the bottom, push up the screen. You will find many hidden solutions here. That is it. But I wonder why these are almost kept hidden!

  • Julian says:

    Hi I can’t find battery save option. Does this ROM have that option?

  • Erik says:

    I want to install cyanogen in my Samsung SIII mini, but I want to make sure what I should do:
    1) Install the TWRP that is in the download section.
    2) Then, install the cyanogen from the download section.
    Is that it? There is anything else I should do?
    Does anyone knows a tutorial to install TWRP from this site?
    And most important: what are the chances for me to screw things up and permanently loose my phone?

  • Nico says:

    Fantastic release! Very stable

  • Mishu says:

    I’m having the same problem since lot of updates before. I can’t record with the video camera, so I can’t send videos on WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. Any help?

  • Steve says:

    Flashed from stock but no longer have any network – the EMEI is still there and the SIM is seen (it asks for my SIM PIN) but there is no signal (just Emergency Calls only)

  • Mark Dammer says:

    Phone only rings once with a custom Ringtone (e.g. an mp3 in the sdcard/Ringtones folder). Not a big deal (for me), but good to know because otherwise you may miss calls.

  • OMG says:

    AOKP update please

  • JohnnyBR says:

    How can I print the screen? And for me Offline charging is not working…

  • Fubar says:

    “You’ve AdBlock enabled! Please, consider disabling it to support our work!” The second you change the “Issues – none” to: “Issues – a LOT, please read the comments below for all the problems” , that’s when I turn off my Adblocker. It seems to me, you have no ROM here that makes a 100% functional phone.

  • Step says:

    What about battery life? It still seems my S3 mini eat a lot of battery with Android OS (22%) and Android-System (18%), not many applications installed..almost default with WhatsApp and Facebook and the likes.

  • I can’t find the battery save option, is it normal?

  • Hugo Pinto says:

  • Darlei says:

  • Julio says:

  • amb67 says:

    ok so i have a few issues:

    Battery life is much worse than the last release, not getting any notifications of emails,fb or tweets now, I seem to be missing calls, looks like I have the same issue as Mark Dammer.

    Speed is good and not getting any locking up or randomn reboots etc…

    Great work guys, keep em coming….

  • Naliel Rugeles says:

    Anyone can please tell me how to fix status 7? For some reason after a year of flashing cm11 it tells me now that I have an “error status 7”

  • Wie says:

    would you mind to make a new update for galaxy s advance too?

  • Mincadur says:

    I am not able to access the recovery menu since the 01-26 update. I cannot access it via the reboot>recovery option in the shotdown menu nor the button combination combo during the phone startup. This means that I am not able to install the 01-31 version. I reinstalled TWRP but to no avail. Has anyone run into this issue? How can I fix it?

  • mjardeli says:

    First of all, I would like to Thanks for this great rom!

    I am having trouble to copy text inside a google keep note and some random copies. When I try to paste, there is no text on the clipboard.

    Are Anybody with the same problem?

  • gtu says:

    Frontal camera does not work and the battery comsuption is quite bar 🙁

  • Hipp says:

    I have installed this version, since 8 days… and i have 2 problems with it:

    – 2 times the phone is switched off during charging (Not good, if alarm is active)
    – 1 times the phone crashed during the loading (desctop was freezed, no HW keys was funcionable –> Akku must be removed for fixed)

    – The desktop lock does not work reliably
    –> when i press “menu key”, the lock screen is displayed
    –> after it, when i press “ON/OFF key” (in lock screen), the display was switch off
    –> again i press “ON/OFF key”, the desktop is active without lock screen !! (1 time, therfore the desktop was unlocked in my pocket and has called a contact!!!)

  • Hipp says:

    2 replays … and both are removed ??? Great works!!
    Retrying… 🙁 …

    – S3 mini GT-i8190
    – cm11.0_golden.nova.20150131.ODIN_TWRP.zip
    – pa_gapps-modular-full-4.4.4-20150125-signed.zip

    I have installed this version since 8 days and i have more problemes with it:
    – 2 times, during charging the S3mini was switched off (not good, when alarm is active!!)
    – 1 times, during charging the S3mini is crashed (desktop was frozen, the battery must be physical removed for fixed)

    – When i short press “Home key”, the “Lock screen” is displayed, but in the settings “Buttons”, it gives no “Short press action” for change of “Home button”.

    – The “lock screen” doesn’t always work. When i press “Power” key 2 times, the mobile phone ist unlocked without pattern input!!

    – The battery life is very short in comparision to stock samsung android (approx: samsung ca. 36h vs. CM = 20h) …
    – No additional apps are installed (CM11 + gp apps modular only)
    – Bluethooth is on, WLAN is on, GPS is off, Airplane mode is active from 10pm to 5am (this combination had few impact at samsung android only)

    After 5 or 6 minute the download speed decrease like 3/4 Kbyte for second and after another 2 or 3 minute it stops, and make me error…of course the download is not completed..

  • Chris says:

  • kevin says:

  • Bruno says:

    Whatsapp does not send videos

  • Jürgen says:

    I flashed the newest version a week ago. Now the device works two days at moderate usage, which is way more than before. So i wonder, why there are so major differences? Especially, did I something wrong at flashing at first?

    Anyway, great work! Works without any problem on my device! I love it!

  • Mark Dammer says:

    I just discovered this bug while travelling: If you travel to a new timezone the clock changes automatically, but the clock in the notification bar does not change. You have to reboot the phone for this to happen.

    still not working wifi direct

  • Problems with RIL on i8190L

  • Mani says:

    I updated from version 11-20150124. For the first time I used TWRP for flashing as I was using ODIN only till now.

    A beautifully designed NOVAFUSION pages led me thro the update process.

    I thought it is better to wipe cache and Dalvik after flashing(and not before!) However the Novafusion guide led me to reboot with no option to wipe afterwards.

    I wish to record here specifically the VERY PLEASING DESIGN of those NOVAFUSION PAGES!

    (Why, however almost always the version number appears differently? This time though the heading says 20150131, visible under about phone shows 11-20150130 unofficial.

  • Dogol says:

    Please help me about this issue.


  • omri says:

    Has someone encountered a problem where the apps name is disappeared from the icon?
    Tried restart, shutdown and even installing the ROM again.

    here’s a picture I took:

    Would be happy to get help in this problem.

    • Mani says:

      When you are in the main home screen, or opening screen, just click the 3 lines button at the bottom left of your phone, not inside the screen. Then from the bottom, push up the screen. Wherever you see ICON LABELS, CLICK IT TILL “SHOW”IS VISIBLE. That is it.

  • Garry says:

    Is there a way of curing the random boot loop I an getting? As sometimes it takes quite a while to sort. out, because it thinks the battery is dead but after several battery removals and pauper it reboots as normal

  • Mani says:

    I am very comfortably settled with this release. I am not a heavy user and so my battery lasts for 2+ days, same way in which the stock ROM used to last. Of course this condition I reached over a period of time. Main additional app I use is Greenify. other tools I regularly use are SD MAID, easy cache cleaner and DU battery optimise.

  • Tomas K says:


    Thanks a lot for the release 20150131. Its stable indeed, works great and its much more faster than stock ROM. I have only an issue with HQ youtube playback, it works only up to 360p resolution.

    I found some workaround on XDA in this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1529715

    Have I install the old 4.4 [MOD] version of YouTube app? Is there any possibilities how to playback HQ video on the latest 10.X official YT app? Or its forbided by google? Thanks.
