  • GuillermoZX says:

    El problema con el wifi encendido a la hora de apagar el smartphone persiste, esta muy mal que se quede con 1ghz y la única forma de arreglarlo, es desconectando el wifi y apagarlo cosa que es muy molesta por lo demas funciona perfectamente.

  • Gerardo says:

    Many ppl of those commentaries doesnt speak english very well, they are trying to say the link wich is provided when you click on google apps for kitkat 4.4.4 is down, well the link is not down but the forum topic is closed “http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=44417509&postcount=1″…. some say that youtube is not working well, some keep reporting 1Ghz bug, and other guy says that the battery charging doenst go more than 92% (i think his battery is broken lol)

  • Gracias como siempre, ya que con ello podemos alargar la vida de nuestro smartphone. Pero creo que muchos bugs no se corrigen y llevan ya bastante tiempo, como lo del wifi, vídeos, batería, etc. Además creo que se debería especificar más en concreto los cambios introducidos en cada versión, ya que casi siempre aparece lo mismo, y un mejor feedback al usuario ante nuesros comentarios por parte de los desarrolladores.

    • Cypek27 says:

      Gracias för english język!!

    • Luis says:

      Enrique, ¿estás tomando en cuenta que es una ROM por la que no pagas? Además muchos de los cambios no vienen de Nova, y son cosas que sería mucho trabajo ir nombrando una por una.

      • Hola Luis, si por eso siempre les agradezco, si no fuera por Nova aún seguiría en la version 4.1.2 :(. Lo de los cambios no me refiero a todos, sino a los cambios más importantes que implementa Nova, como lo de “videos bugfixes”, se podría especificar más, por ejemplo si han solucionado lo de youtube, o lo de instagram, etc y otros problemas con los vídeos que escriben otros usuarios.

      • Casimiro Go says:

        Creo que nadie olvida eso. El problema que veo es que las metas de Nova pareciera que estan desalineadas con las de su comunidad y lo unico que hacemos es recordarselo. Deja de asumir que cualquiera que reclama por un feature es un malagradecido.

  • Tomas K says:

    Does It’s worth to upgrade from 11-20150422? Is there better baterry life, bug-fix? I cant see it in change log. Otherwise good job, the 11-20150422 works great, without crashes. I have issue with battery drain – up to 6-8 hours (however no 1Ghz bug and deep sleep mod is working), but Im heavy user. I have also the video bug after upgrade Youtube and Facebook apps, before it works.Thanks to Novafusion team, dont keep up your work!

    • M Dammer says:

      I am using 11-20150502 without any problems. I tried later versions but had problems with 3G data so rolled back to 0502. Yes I am interested to know if an update brings any improvements or if its better to stay with what is working.

  • Tomas K says:

    Which version 11/12/12.1 has the best battery endurance?

    • 11, 12/12.1 has a super high battery drainage, even in sleepmode…. cm11 i can use in flymode over nicght and have still 70% left, cm12/12.1 doesn’t has any percent left in the morning.

  • Mike says:

  • M Dammer says:

    Not sure if this is a generic CM or a specific problem of these releases: It is impossible to see if mobile data is on while roaming. The roaming indicator in the notification bar seems to override all other useful network information. For me this is serious as it already had cost me money 🙁
    Is there any workaround / solution for this ?

  • Seed Vicious says:

    Thanks a lot Team! I love you!

  • Luis José Castro says:

    Hi Novafusion! Youtube and Netflix not working in this release. Thanks.

  • Alfred says:

    Please, help me …. I can’t enter in TWRP, any idea?

    • With the cellphone turned off press those key till cellphone vibrate “Hold Powerkey, Volume Up, Volume down”
      If that doenst work try using odin and the ROM package for it, it will install the TWRP correctly. 🙂

    • Tomas says:

      Enable extended reboot and then you’ll have an opportunity to select “reboot into recovery”

  • jurgen says:

  • Masala says:

    I have one issue using this OS; I can’t see my contacts from SIM card :/

  • Oz Mendez says:

    It restarts frequently and it’s hard to detect my card sim

  • matti72 says:

    I have found 2 issues so far.
    1. CM won’t display my contacts’s phone numbers from my SIM card.
    2. When I charge my phone with power off, the charging icon don’t pop up.

    Although good work so far, I really like this OS is better than original. 😉

  • Simone says:

    Hi guys!
    There are some questions I want to ask you before trying this rom:
    – I need FM Radio so I want to know if it works in this rom (If it doesn’t work by default but there is a method or a particular app to download to make it works please tell me!);
    – Can I install apps from .apk files rather than from the play store? (because I’ve read from some posts in the previous version that someone had some problems doing this);
    – Can I move apps from the internal storage to the external SD card? (same as before I’ve read someone having troubles doing it)

    Please answer me and sorry for my bad English!
    Thanks! =)

    • Socste says:

      – Spirit FM Radio from Google Play works great but it’s expensive (10€)
      – Of course you can install apk, just go to settings-security and enable unknown sources
      – You can move apps to sd from the settings

  • JaKB says:


    I downgraded from a CM12.1 version which was running very slow. This gen CM11.0 is much smoother, no waiting to speak of. Excellent effort, I think! Thanks a lot to all of the team.

    However, I cannot seem to get Netflix & Youtube to work. Have tried restarting both apps, tried reinstalling netflix, tried updating both, tried restarting the phone. No success 🙁 Do I need to do something else??

    • Mikelly says:


      I’m currently on Carbon5.1.1 and it’s 99% flawless for me but if you’re going to use CM11 I’ve used 11 Mar 15 ROM. That ROM worked perfect for me on everything to include netflix and youtube. I’ve had no other issues with this ROM at all. Hope this help.

      • JaKB says:

        Thanks! But I got option #2 for getting Netflix to work on Cyanogenmod from here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2405995) to work with the rather old version of the Netflix app. I think I will stick to that for now.

        BTW, I tried cm12.1, but just can’t stand the knuckle dragging slowness… CM11 is more snappy as far as I can see. Haven’t tested any more than CM11 20150607, CM10.2 20141021 and CM12.1 20150520, though…

        • Mikelly says:


          Personally I don’t like CM12/12.1. Way too buggy for me I’m currently using CarbonLP5.1.1 and it works great!!! If you read my comments on the CarbonLP forum here you’ll see what I mean. Good luck on your fix.

  • cardana says:

    My GPS is not working properly. It has a 20metres difference from “reality”, making software think i’m turning to streets where i’m not going to. Anyone else? Any solution to this problem?

  • mattd says:

    I’m trying to build this release from scratch so I can have a baseline for some test modifications. Does anybody have the manifest files used to build it? It looks like there are a lot of repositories forked from the main CM tree, but it’s not 100% clear which ones I need and how they merge with the vanilla CM tree.

    Thanks for the great work!

  • Wlanowski says:

    Is it possible to develope CM for Galaxy SIII mini i8200?? There is a petition on change.org, but I want to know whether there is sth WIP.

    Best regards!

  • asdasdffasd says:

    Bad News!
    Have tried downloading from http://get.novafusion.pl/?id=1648 through 2 different connections, using TOR both times, and both ways get a 228.2 MB file (11 MB bigger than it should be) with a MD5 checksum of 0773d8623427fe636431983041e396fa.
    I guesse I’ll have to try on other machines in different locations, but could you be serving the wrong file? Wouldn’t your download page automatically update the MD5? Its probably just because I’m pwned.

  • Andres says:

    Here are the Gapps http://sh.st/zUYFV

  • mikelly says:

    Nevermind the Gapps suggested above. Use this link from XDA-Developers. I’ve been using their gapps without any issues. You can download a huge files down to pico files. Your choice. Enjoy!!!
