RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150331) 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.

  • 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 😉

    • saygone says:

      What should you do? Hmmm carefully read what team wrote at the begining? 😉

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

    • Simonmon says:

      you have to drop the .zip-data from the downloadpage. Select the “recovery”-Version. Then you go tho the recovery at your phone (on/off + volume up + home) Then you click on install and select the zip from the download-page. That was it 😀

    Cyanogen mod 12.0 stable release (20150331) calls that are dropped by the network is disconnected at times. P.D: thanks for this great ROM 😀

  • Hotohori says:

    – Default notification sounds (ringtone) Preview doesn’t work
    – Music doesn’t work anymore.
    – Calling loudspeakers doesn’t work directly, it’s working after pushing Volume up/down.

    There is no button to send a Report to you on Error?
    The Cyanogenmod has this implemented. Please add this too.

  • Hotohroi says:

  • jorgeavc says:


    I so excited, that I have this option,but, I have several problems, Where Can i find solutions?

    Fo example, when I update to CM 11.0 to 12.0 I lost my terminal, and I don´t know, How reinstall,
    Other problem, when i try to move my app to sd, my device tell that is full, that´s no real.


    • To enable the terminal, go to the “Developer options” in “Settings”. You can enable those by tapping seven times on the “build number” in “about phone”. You should find an option to turn on the terminal there.
      Moving apps to the sdcard seems to be a known bug with this ROM.

  • Rainer Wiesenfarth says:

    Bug: Sending an SMS from contacts list requires additional contact selection. To reproduce:

    – Open contacts and select a contact
    – tap on the SMS icon close to the mobile number

    – SMS/MMS app opens, but shows list of conversations
    – I have to tap on the “+” and add the (previously selected) contact to the recipient list

    – I would expect the message composition window to open directly, with the contact being set as the recipient

    • Rainer Wiesenfarth says:

      Additional note: Works with Threema and WhatsApp as expected, so problem seems to be with the SMS/MMS app.



  • rbgm says:

    I know it should be a feature but it’s more like a bug:
    whenever i type or recieve a message – no matter where – with two consecutive numbers they are interpreted as being a phone number, underlined and contacts app opens trying to create a new contact with this number
    looks like the parser is not working correctly yet
