RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.1

New stable release (20150605) of CM12.1 for S3 Mini is available!

Please, test it and report any bugs!

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

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 😉

If somehow you’ll find a bug, use our bugtracker if you want to report it.

    Nova good morning, my report up to now.
    I have notice that everything is moving much smoother, apps open faster but I left the cell changing last night because was pretty late when I realized that there was a new ROM.
    This morning the charge with the cell on reached only 62% no more. No I turned off the cell and I am waiting to see if I get the full charge offline. Just a note before some body jump and yell me battery battery. Before I even started to download the 06/05 ROM the charge was 100%. It is not a matter of battery condition, I am not a newy here.
    While I am writing this the battery charge, offline, has already reached 70%.
    Thank you for your time.

    Hi! Nova!

    I come to report these bugs:

    – To restart the device, it consumes a lot of battery.

    – When viewing a video on Instagram, Instagram is closed.

    – The developer mode disappears from the Settings menu.

    – Charging offline, does not fill the battery.

    – And finally in settings, applications bar memory usage of all applications does not appear, here I leave a screenshot of the problem: http://i.imgur.com/XkImVll.jpg

    I hope that solutions of these problems. Thank you for your great work.

    I have a question, please answer if someone knows:

    In specifications I see “Bluetooth 4.0 with LE support A2DP”.

    I want to by Xiaomi Mi Band device, that requires BT 4.0 LE. Is it compatible with our BT 4.0? Should the device be connected?

    Thanks in advance!
