New stable release (20150325) 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.

Changelog:

  • updated CM12.0 sources
  • fully reinitialized build tree with latest patches from NovaFusion, Meticulus and golden-guy/AndroidAndi

  • Odin package update

  • GPS/Glonass/A-GPS

  • Google Play
  • CPU sleep mode
  • MTP
  • ADB
  • no tearing
  • tripple buffering

  • f2fs filesystem support

Issues

  • video taken by stock camera app is green, but some apps like Camu taking correct videos without any issues
  • 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 😉
Thanks.

    anyone knows why? :c

  • vope says:

    Great work !

    Here are my bugs

    – Some bad French Layouts (I can help if you need… several times I proposed it, and I am disappointed because I’m not conctacted to help)
    – Bad French translation due to CM12
    – BLN Control doesn’t work
    – Flashlight Long on-time.
    – Bug with Flashlight icon. It desappears when toggle…
    – No EAP-SIM
    – Old Android release (5.0.2). Now current release is Android 5.1…
    – Calculator keys are not sensitive

    • Arturo says:

      stop copying and paste the same comment in every release! bugs will be fixed soon, Nova team has already seen your comment!

    • Arturo says:

      also, android 5.1 will be released when cyanogenmod 12.1 is ready, here we have cyanogenmod 12.

    • STFU says:

      You’re so boring on every release, everybody knows already about your French layouts and nobody wants your help. If you don’t like this ROM go to CM11 and STFU! Select English and STFU. Copy/Paste this into your brain.

    • ryan says:

      they said they are already working on cm12.1 on the xda page

      install xposed
      reboot
      install gravitybox
      reboot
      go into gravitybox
      go into statusbar tweaks > quicksettings management > stausbar quicksettings tiles
      untick torch(stock)
      scroll down
      tick torch(gravitybox)

      fixed flashlight disappearing for me

    • vope says:

      – Picture is frozen during offline charge
      – Livedisplay doesn’t work

    • vope says:

      To Nova Team: could you update the link to dowload GAPPS, please ?
      It is broken…

  • Maximix says:

    Here the GAPPS Link FROM ME: ( need 45min.)

  • Raul says:

    Gotta check it later on my S3 mini 😀 thanks a lot novafusion for bring CM12 to us

  • Jose says:

    video taken by stock camera app is green, but some apps like Camu taking correct videos without any issues

    • ryan says:

      use videocam illusion for videos

      change resolution settings down a bit
      and you now have lag free videos with working display

  • Bruh says:

    Apps to SD Card feture is not working,Anyone??

  • Sleyman says:

    offline charcing doesnt work 🙁

    • ryan says:

      if you want to turn phone on without taking out battery

      when loading symbol shows(offline charging)
      take charger out
      hold power button until vibrate then let go
      hold power button
      there you go you can now get out of offline charging without taking battery out

  • shros says:

    What ‘s about battery? is it better?

  • wojtodzio says:

    Is camera in snapchat working well?

  • abf says:

    offline charge does not work… neither online

    • ryan says:

      online charging – phone charges when it is on

      offline charging – phone displays loading symbol when phone is off and charging

      so your phone won’t charge when it is on?

      and for offline charging if it shows loading symbol

      if you want to turn phone on without taking out battery

      when loading symbol shows(offline charging)
      take charger out
      hold power button until vibrate then let go
      hold power button
      there you go you can now get out of offline charging without taking battery out

  • xumes says:

    hi there,
    Is that possible to move apps to SDCard? I receive all time the message saying there is no enough space even after formating SD card.
    Is this a known issue or is something happening only on my device?
    Does anyone has any directions to me? Thanks in advance

  • Anzhari says:

    Tried it, and no issue seems to be found.

    But what’s bugging me is that it’s very slow on my S3 mini. I only installed minimal GAPPS, no other apps. Do you guys also experience the same thing?

    • Anzhari says:

      Sorry, my bad. The slow one is release 20150321. This 20150325 release actually run quite smooth on my S3 mini.

      But apparently when I open app like Chrome, it takes around 2 – 3 seconds until the app loaded. I suppose this is due to limited CPU power in this smartphone. Do you guys have the same experience?

    • mohamed tito says:

      i have that problem

  • Felps says:

    Am i the only one having problems with audio recorder? I can’t use both the stock and the Whatsapp recorder. Does anybody know what to do?

  • Drew Wesley says:

    If most of comments involve green video and where to get gapps, it sounds like this build is headed in a solid direction. 🙂
    * The flashlight long on-time seems like a CM issue I remember from CM11. This is trivial.

    • ryan says:

      a good video camera app is videocam illusion on play store
      works perfectly with sound and video
      just change some resolution settings and you have no lag videos

  • gromada says:

    Trebuchet crashes so I returned to previous stable release (21.03.2015.)

  • Leo says:

    Hi,

    i have some very bad problems.

    I got every 5 seconds the notofication “Youtube stopps” “google Stopps” and so on.

    I’m not able to use my phone 🙁 please fix it

  • Carlos says:

    The F2FS filesystem format changes during installation to ext4, there is no way to stay in F2FS

  • joe says:

    Thanks a lot and Where Can We Download GAPPS? Xda Threat is Closed.

  • abf says:

    Wife’s phone is a i8190L, besides the online/offline charging issue, I noticed:

    – video playback only shows a black screen (audio is fine)
    – auto brightness is not available (as far as I know it is supported in the stock rom)
    – quite slow performance (not sure if f2fs would make any difference), specially when more than one app (like FB, Whatsapp and Chrome at the same time are opened)
    – screen errors (ramdom lines and pixels when using chrome – tearing?)
    – camera is too basic (few options and video still doesn’t work)

    Additional info:
    – My wife is getting mad <— the worst thing! xD
    – I'm not criticizing, just describing my experience

  • Frank.Mac.BR says:

    i wanna try a new kernel. suggestions?

  • Sector says:

    Installed this morning!

    I hereby confirm that the only way to get the device correctly functioning is a clean install, in other words:
    – backup all things using Super Backup SMS & Contacts to SD Card;
    – restart the device in Recovery Mode;
    – wipe system, data, cache & dalvik cache;
    – turn data & cache partitions to F2FS;
    – install the new version of the CM12 ROM from SD Card;
    – install the GApps from SD Card;
    – wipe cache & dalvik cache;
    – Reboot with new OS;
    – restore Super Backup backups from SD Card;
    – install the other apps and configure them.

    I tried both install through TWRP and Odin without wiping the system partition, but every time I get many problems with notifies not showing up and app mobile data communication.

    The only way to be pretty sure of the correct install of the ROM is the above mentioned one.

    So far:
    NOY (Not Observed Yet), NTY (Not Tried Yet), SIP (Still in Place), STHBS (Seems to have been solved)

    – “No Service” on mobile network with high battery drain -> NOY
    – Call dropping when answering a call -> NOY
    – Offline charging not working and freezing the device -> NTY
    – Random reboots of the device -> NOY
    – Videos not working with stock camera app (and Google Camera) -> SIP
    – Videos quite jerky with Camu -> SIP
    – The Wi-Fi connection automatic disable when Internet is unavailable doesn’t reactivate when Internet becomes available, it stays with the “!” signal and the data connection remains on the mobile data. You need to reactivate the Wi-Fi connection manually. -> NOY
    – Contacts sorting/format into the call registry -> STHBS
    – Chrome rendering errors -> NTY
    – SIM unlock window quite slow in showing up after boot -> SIP

    Thank you NOVA!

    • ryan says:

      internet disconnection issues is a problem with android 5.0.2 not a problem with cm12 or nova

      don’t use camu
      install videocam illusion from google play and lower resolution settings – lag free videos and working audio and video

      try installing chrome beta

      my friend has internet connection problems on his nexus 4 and new nexus 6

      i use videocam illusion with 720 x 480 resolution and videos record perfectly

      i use chrome beta and i don’t have any pixel problems like before
      the problems with the pixels was chrome not nova or cm12

  • abf says:

    This comment was also posted in the previous release… my mistake… It is for this one (20150325)

    Not sure if this can be considered a workaround for the offline charge but I “discovered” a weird thing while playing with my wife’s i8190L.

    – Power off the phone
    – Plug the charger (it is expected to see the loading star)
    – Attempt to start in recovery (power + volume up + menu)

    The phone attempted to start recovery but for some reason while plugged it never did. However, while waiting for the recovery menu, I was able to see the white battery charging and then the screen turned into black. I released the buttons at that time and then just clicking the power button (short press) the screen showed the battery charging. The charging process appears to be longer than usual but at least it seems to be working.

    Besides it reaches 100% while charging, once I restarted the phone it always shows 95~98%.

    I tried the above at least 3 times to confirm if this workaround works… It worked for me… I hope it works for you.

    DO NOT restart the phone while plugged. In my case the battery showed a weird value.

    • FlamiN says:

      Your phone uses that 5% battery when it’s booting the system, preparing for using etc. It’s not a bug. You can reboot your phone without connecting it to the charger. You should notice a minor change on the battery’s status.

    • Sector says:

      I just tried on my i8190 but nothing happens, always the white frozen star and nothing else…

      • ryan says:

        1. when phone is off insert power cable until loading symbol shows up
        2. when it shows up hold power button until screen goes black and let go instantly as you do not want to trigger it to turn back on
        3.wait five seconds
        4.hold volume up – home – then power and hold until you hear 2 vibrates
        5.let go

        i will make a video tommorow on how to do this

  • Marta says:

    Fix the green video bug please, you should make it a priority it has been there like forever!!

  • mo7said25 says:

    touch screen stopped responding after i terminated a call (GT-I8190)

  • Mishu says:

    I’m having some issues:
    – Sometimes my phone randomly reboot (example at 70%) and turn on with 10-3% of battery. It says “system has stopped”. If I turn off my phone for 10-20 minutes or more the battery gets the normal % but sometimes keeps rebooting again or not lol. My battery is now swollen but I was thinking to change it to see if makes difference.
    – Can you bring back the light buttons when a notification arrives?
    – (Facebook) Messenger app don’t work. When I try to open, its only a white screen until I get tired and close the app lol.

    Thanks for your work ♥

  • the files such as photos and musics in my sd card getting has a copy, its back to normal when i do factory reset but in about 5 days its hapenned again. nova please give me solutions 🙂
    sorry for my bad english

  • Okan says:

    Random reboots (e.g. from %70 to %5 drain) are because of dead battery. I had experienced that too. After I changed battery with brand new one, I have never experienced it.

    What about FM Radio? Am I missing something?

  • Hello guys! First of all, thank you for a new wonderful release. My phone is working fine, but in this release i experienced some bugs, as i wrote down further.

    “– Can you bring back the light buttons when a notification arrives?”

    I second that.

    Here we go, only listing errors that are bothering me:

    – Chrome rendering errors -> SIP (Yeah, many erros i can tell. Many of them on Google search results page itself).
    – Call dropping when answering a call -> NOY (i experienced the problem on the release before this, though).
    – Offline charging not working and freezing the device -> SIP
    – Flashlight Long on-time -> SIP.

    That’s it. Keep up the good work!

  • Hi there. First oft all,.many thanks Nova.

    Its first time i have installed cm.

    It was making me crazy.

    Have tried serval to get running gapps.
    At End a tiny gapps work fine for me.
    I have installed few things manually by play store.

    Runns much better than the original one.

    The only Problem i found its major is wifi connection lost.
    A system restart only helps.

    Would be very pleased if this is fixed.

    I couldnt test call in the n8.

    Will See.

    Cheers
