RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150304) 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.

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 😉

  • Giovanni says:

    QUESTION : such is the connection with pc and you charge the battery off the phone? Videos of the website are now seen in native player ? is already root?

    • G says:

      1. PC-connection fixed long time ago
      2. Offline charging fixed too!!
      3. Don`t know about it
      4. How can you install it if your device is not rooted, hah??? Of course it is rooted. You just need to turn it on in development settings as some other users!

      • Giovanny says:

        if you can rooting , but I do not like this rom back to 20150226 , demaciado locks , and install from scratch each time worse?

  • Schmuppes says:

    Your work is tremendous. I liked CM12 instantly, it already runs so smoothly. The only thing I cannot say for sure is the battery life, but it might be my slightly aged battery anyway. Thank you very much, Novafusion!

    • Joe Morris says:

      The lower battery life is due to the memory drain bug in Android 5.0.X. And should be fixed in the Android 5.1 update.
      Just wait 🙂

      • ryan says:

  • darjerz says:

    I tylko szkoda, że nie działa kamera 🙁 bo potestowałem chwike i działąa rewelacyjnie- kawał dobrej roboty!. Jako że wytkorystuje fona jako rejestrator jazdy z Daily Road liczę na to że lizaczek zagości u mnie na dłużej.

  • Kwstas says:

    i installed the previous version of CyanogenMod 12.0
    if i install this one will i lose all the data and do i have to do my phone all over again?

  • Hi,

    I upgraded my rooted s3 mini from cm 11 to cm 12. Now it tells me, I am not able any more to execute an app needing root. The su binary need to be updated. Tried already by installing supersu, but that was not successfully.

    What do I need to do to get the su binary up to dote or to be able to run apps with root right?

    Thanks for your help.

  • GBD says:

    CoPilot GPS crashes on I8190 after the user ID configuration. The same appends with Nova CM11.
    This issue is not present on other CM11 and CM12 installations on other devices like Samsung P3110 (CM11) and I9300 (CM12).


  • batman says:

    I am using CM11 now. I want to install CM12. Before that I want to know that call drop is fixed really? Anyone tried it?

  • Ilya says:

  • ogun says:

  • ryan says:

    or at least add audio support for camu

  • Sankar says:

    This ROM is pretty good, but I really miss the BLN support. I was just wondering whether this feature is in the pipeline.

    • ryan says:


      • Sankar says:

        Thanks for clarifying, Ryan. Since it’s not explicitly mentioned in the Features list, I assumed it’s not there in this ROM. Anyway, it’d be great to get this working properly..

  • Shayan says:

    Does the VPN work correctly?

  • alberto97 says:

    works videos in instagram, vine…?

  • vope says:

    Great work !

    – Some bad French Layouts (I can help if you need)
    – Bad French translation due to CM12
    – BLN Control doesn’t work
    – Flashlight Long on-time.
    – Bug with Flashlight icon. It desappears when toggle
    – Maybe less slow than the previous release

  • keyvin says:

    cada vez menos errores excelente

  • Schmuppes says:

    I did a completely clean install and formatted /system, /data and /cache with f2fs in TWRP. Weird thing is, when I install yesterday’s release, it changes /system to ext4 again. What am I doing wrong?

    • Ryan says:

      if you want ext4 format as f2fs

      if you want f2fs format as ext4

      that sounds like your problem

      • Schmuppes says:

        I don’t get it. Could you elaborate, please?

        • kai says:

          In Cm11 there was an Installation Dialogue during zip Installation to chose the file system used on \system. Now during zip Installation of cm12 the partition \system is always rebuilt ro ext4 format! I see no chance using f2fs on \system at the moment. After changing to f2fs in twrp and choosing zip install of cm12 the first message is like …flashing to system f2fs. Then the nearly same message appears with …flashing to system ext4. After installation the system partition is ext4.
          Thx for importing an cm11-like setup dialogue in cm12!

  • majkeeelo says:

    Dzięki wielkie za liczne aktualizacje. System działa świetnie. Niestety nie jest idealnie. Oto co zanotowałem:
    -w dalszym ciągu, gdy ktoś do mnie dzwoni i telefon był akurat nieużywany, uśpiony, po odebraniu połączenia zostaje ono natychmiast przerwane po jakichś 2-3 sekundach. Gdy ktoś ponawia próbę, to za drugim bądź trzecim razem udaje się przeprowadzić rozmowę,
    -gdy ktoś dzwoni i telefon jest uśpiony, trzeba bardzo długo czekać aż wyświetli się ekran z możliwością odebrania połączenia, ok 5-10 sekund ekran jest czarny, a telefon wibruje i daje w tym czasie sygnał,

  • Antonio says:

    I give up !!!! I continue to have problems with incoming calls that are interrupted suddenly!!! and……. Step by CyanogenMod 11

  • lucas says:

    Great release, its almost perfect, i just had some issues with root access for some apps and some of my contacts disappearwhen stored on the phone memory.But still very stable and fluid thanks, can i somehow change the dsp Audio FX for the Cm 11 Dsp?

  • Petr says:

    List of issues:

    * Battery life is shorter than at CM11 (-30 %).
    * The incoming calling is killed suddenly sometimes.
    * In Google Chrome is sometimes wrong rendering, for example during scrolling in Google News.
    * No camera works to take video (Camu takes it, but it is very very slowly and so that useless video).
    * Sometimes delay during switching App menu and home screen.
    * Sometimes stopping data.
    * It miss volume profile by clicking power button (I think the three icons: silence, vibrations, loud).
    * It miss screen capture by clicking power button.

    🙂 but thx.

    Pls create auto update by cyanogenmod. Why you cannot cooperate with them?
