RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150131) of CM12.0 for S3 Mini is available!

For flashing Lollipop, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free 😉

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation if you don’t updating from older CM12.0 release.

You need to perform a wipe if you’re migrating from software different than CM12.0!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

  • f2fs experimental support
  • Odin package update


  • RIL (phone/SMS/3G)

  • Wi-fi
  • Bluetooth 4.0 with LE support A2DP
  • GPS/Glonass/A-GPS

  • CPU sleep mode
  • MTP
  • ADB
  • no tearing
  • tripple buffering
  • external storage
  • SELinux

  • video taken by camera is green
  • less than 2% of users are reporting issues with mobile data – just add new APN manually with settings proper for your provider and apply it to make 3G working

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 😉

    Hi, thank you for release!
    Ask please, which f2fs partitions supported?
    I changed ext4 filesystem on /system and /cache to f2fs, but after installing Rom it seems that /system partition became ext4 again. Why?

  • Krasnal says:

    Czy planujesz CM12 na S Advance? 🙂

  • Seewe says:

    If I had CM 12 before and I flash this rom without wiping, will all my apps still be there? Will my APN be there?

    Is Flickering , MTP and incoming call dropping fixed?

  • zemc77 says:

    F2FS support in the works? YAY!! 😀

  • missing says:

    Do the USB?

  • bellthane says:

    Dear developers,

    can you give us an assumption, when we can expect USB support? It is a hassle to use the MicroSD all the time.

    Thanks for all of your work!


    • thor says:

      hows your experience in using this build? \:D

    • Kosmik says:

      Use Airdroid and your problem is gone. dont need to thank me x)

    • Luis. says:

      Something you can do is this: Donwload “My Phone Explorer” (there is even a portable option!) on your pc. Install the apk of My Phone Explorer on your phone (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fjsoft.myphoneexplorer.client). Start the program on your pc and the app on your phone. Then configure on the pc to conect through Wi-Fi. Now, you not only have a backup of all your contacts, msm and calls, But you can move wirelessly files and even use your pc’s keyboard on the phone!

    • Tommy Prud'homme says:

      i suggest you to use airdroid
      free app which easily and seemlessly allow you to manage photo using lan connection. i am able to send a rom .zip file in 2-3 minutes to my phone. its dont travel trought internet, it simply use lan (local) connection. you dont even need usb cable or phone driver. it also allow you to do much more than only sending files 😛 you can manage photos//videos//music//contacts//send sms// and text to paste bin and much more. i used that app for years on 4 different phones and it always was flawless, much quicker than usb or such.

      hope it help you 🙂

    Are you sure the one on the download area is working? Tried to install it, got a missing contexts warning, installation aborted, going to install CM11 again for now once I get some sleep.

  • Ahmet says:

    The performance seems good, i am still struggling with USB connection. When i try to change USB connection settings under Settings/Storage, settings menü crashes (I think it’s known issue). Other than that the rom is running not much different than CM11 for me.

  • Ahmad Alsaroot says:

    Thank you for the great work with the S3 mini 5.0.2; however, please note when I receive a phone call & I answer it & put phone against my ear, then sometimes accidentally my face will touch the red call/finishing botton.. So to avoid unintended hanging up of calls, is there a way the call finishing button can be changed to be like a swipe way or any other convienient way..
    Best Rgds,
    Ahmad Alsaroot

    Thanks for your work !

    Since specifically TWRP 2.8 is being recommended for flashing, does it mean ODIN route is not recommended? Thank you

  • jab says:

    I added a bugreport for the USB MTP problems. If you have additional comments leave them here: https://github.com/NovaFusion/android_device_samsung_golden/issues/38

  • Mani says:

    Today after getting ready with new TWRP etc, I repeatedly downloaded (more than 10 times!) the recovery as well as ODIN files. Unfortunately MD5 sum does not match at all for the zip files. Please advice as to what could be the error. Or can I install even if the MD5 sum does not match? thank you

    Minecraft won’t install 🙁

  • Dear Developers,

    Almost daily, I loose the cellular network without coming back on. But I also discovered that not only me who is suffering from this, but also other people are suffering from same problem; this is happening even with 2 diffirent carriers in the very same geographic area while other peoples phones are new samsung & not rooted phones. Also, I noticed that the cellular network doesn’t come back on again unless I reboot my S3 mini; so dear developers, please add a new feature in S3 mini that I can be notified with a continous beep when I loose the cellular mobile network & another kind of beep when I loose the internet connection (with option that I can disable beeping if I choose to). This way I would know when I need to reboot by phone again to get back the lost cellar network (& off course the internet connection).

    Thanks in advance for the good work..
