RELEASE for S3 MiniCyanogenMod 12.1
New stable release (20150923) 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.

CM 11 YouTube fix
For me youtube is fully working with the latest versions of cm 12.1 and cm 11.0 and the stock rom
cm11 youtube fix
pls add the double tap to sleep
Congratulations nova team, this release is fast, smooth, stable, battery life good, i think one of the best releases.
I have battery, and performance tweaks and this release feels like stock…. If u want this tweaks, just write here people.
Which tweaks do you use?
I want please
I’d like to receive those tweaks, can you send a link or something?
hi, i want the tweaks for a better life for my battery, could you help me please??
i want tweaks for s3 mini ..could you help me please??
I want to use your tweaks
up, pls 🙂
can you tell me about this tweaks ? for few second i had finished install this rom
i want it thanks
Can you give it me mate? Its very good rom and i want the longest battery life
Please tell me your tricks
Tell us the tweaks please!
We want your tweaks :))
Why dont get a fix to the video taking issue?
The only issue that i had since the first stable release was the video taking issue.
also the ‘couldn’t move app to sd card’
BLN not working!
This is undoubtedly the best CM12.1 release yet. The entire UI is buttery smooth, even with Tasker and Android Wear running in the background. Performance is amazing (for the S3 Mini), the animation stuttering issue from the last release is gone, everything works perfectly, it’s extremely stable, and it even has support for multiple users. Once again, my only complaint is that apps cannot be moved to the external SD card. Keep up the great work, NovaFusion!
Please give us your tweaks
Ty again for this hard work Nova Fusion Team
Thank you very much, but I would like to ask a favor, a little or not well, depending on your point of view, I would ask for arrumarem Green video in camera, seriously, I stand bugs, alias turns and meche the problem processor lock in 1Ghz happens, I restart, clean cache and everything else to the cell returns to normal, the phone have some backward transitions does not bother me a lot too, the signal falls from time to time or 3G fail sometimes also does not bother me nothing, but I felt very sad the other day that I can not shoot anything with the phone, know it’s a beta, but after a few months expect at least fix this, the rest of the problem stand waiting, like many of us, because we know that will be resolved in the best possible way. So please Pack Green in video camera
Ty for ready this Nova Team. And I’ll wait for this fix

“Thank you very much, but I would like to ask a favor, a little or not well, depending on your point of view, I would like to ask you to correct the green video in camera, seriously, I stand bugs, incidentally turns and moves the problem of processor lock in 1Ghz happens, I restart, clean cache and everything else to the cell returns to normal, the phone have some backward transitions does not bother me a lot too, the signal falls from time to time or 3G fail sometimes also does not bother me nothing, but I felt very sad the other day that I can not shoot anything with the phone, know it’s a beta, but after a few months expect at least fix this, the rest of the problem stand waiting, like many of us, because we know that will be resolved in the best possible way.

it might be extremely hard to do
samsung discontinued updates for device – which means no drivers for anything past jelly bean for s3 mini
every android version loses support with older drivers from older android verisons
we have to work with drivers from jelly bean – so we are lucky to have anything fully working
i recommend vivavideo to shoot video – vivavideo has their own drivers
Please try to make your story as short as possible and easily readable with line spaces…
There’s no one actively working on the green video problem anymore, because they aren’t able for fixing it.
i hope a best sound quality, like the C.11 or OMNI-ROM 5.1 with “GoldenGuy”
How can i use f2fs on the /system partition? /data and /cache works fine. But how can i change /system from ext to f2fs? Thank you very much
Always when i put thw phone to charge it only charges up to 50% and then it stop and doesn’t charges anymore.Plss fix this novafusion
Our Dear Developer
I would like to ask if this ROM still support OTG? thanks in advance!

Block system screen doesn’t work
Why my touch key (back and option) is not working? I have install three version (C.12.1; 12.0. 11.0) but the result is same, the sensitive keys both aren’t working. Thank you,
Same thing for me :/ Doesn’t work, tried with multiple versions of their recovery, multiple ROMs and still nothing to fix it…
good rom but i have problems with facebook :/ thanks
Totally true. Facebook Doesn’t work.
And with the video camera problem, Snapchat or Instagram (upload videos) don’t work neither.
installed it. Seems to be very stable. Except WIFI. Still I need to drop the connection, pick it up from the list, enter the password and connect to get it work again.
Is there any proposal, what might help to fix that? Is there anything to do, to supply additional information about that? Is it only me having that problem?
Help please. after installing this rom my phone properly boot up ive already used it.and decided to factory reset. now my phone bootloop on teamwin logo and won’t start
Can you also add DT2W and overclock? it would be fantastic
lock screen not working
Apps are installing way too long… I won’t comment the time of Facebook installation.
Is there a way to fix it? 🙂
What about the CarbonLP? Did you guys drop the project?
because lollipop versions was used to ART. long installing time but faster opening apps
WiFi connection is toooo slow
The wifi connection is really slow. Including the facebook app 😐
Yes, wifi connection is too slow.
Charge with power pack doesn’t work.
Will this Release run on the S3 Mini I8200 as well?
at last, s3mini will arrive to the offical cyanogenmod. at their offical webpage, s3mini(golden) was labelled. just wait until they put the rom to that page
My Niece battery can handle up to lunchtime . and my touch screen are crazy
The phone doesnt lock, I press the button but always skip the pattern, what I have to do? Also the back and option buttons doesnt work for me.
Hi, can you please help me? I downloaded this release, but i can’t flash it. TWRP says that I can’t install on top of incompatible data. I have 5.1.1 release from 9/12/2015. I had same problem with release from 9/16. I updated twrp recovery to 2.8, but problem persists. Any help here? Thanks, R.
You need to flash stock ROM from sammobile.com and flash again the ROM via odin and the TWRP if you want. But this update is soo bad. I am using virginity v14 right now
Download link please.
Nevermind, found one (albeit in Spanish) (thank you Google Translate).
Is app2sd supported?
hey! cyanogenmod will release offical rom for s3mini soon. visit their webpage and see our mobile’s brandname.
The most stable build ever Fast, smooth, 0 lag. But.. i have an issue with allll the cm versions : i cant move apps to sd card :'( my sd card is 16 gb. When i try move to sd it says No Enought Space but i have freaking 14 gb free space.. i tryed all the apps like Apps2SD but its not working..
Have you tryed Link2SD? It works perfectly fine for me.
The alarmclock does not function. There is no sound output. Thanks for fixing the problem.
Hi,great job as usual,thanks!
I would like to use the bug-tracker but..where is?
Bluetooth doesn’t work with Jabra headset and also with amplify BT .
The green video with camera stock is ….argh( Camu video recording is full of lag,the only alternative workin’fine is Vivavideo).
Thanks again for your job.
Firstly, thanks for CM. Video taking is very important. Camu is work but ı need original camera app for a special app. Please fix.
i loaded this rom then i just think i have to factory reset then i just tap factory reset in the settings menü but it doesen’t pass twrp and it is not opening then i intalled another rom via odin its cm11 lastest verison but its not still pass twrp or even opening someone help me please if my phone dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i couldn’t open clock app.. is there any fix with this?
also, the suggestion/auto-correct bar with mic logo still shown up even suggestion and auto-correct already turn off.. this only happen in messaging app, such as sms, line, bbm and others.
Can’t take a video. Stock doesn’t work and Camu ist laggy.
It would be a giant step to get the perfect ROM by making FULL F2FS support. THX NVT
is there any difference by using f2fs instead of ext4
i know that performance is supposed to be better
but is there any actual notice-able download
This is the best release so far!
I need a little bit of help form you guys….Everytime I get a call or call someone (No matter where I do, as long as I put the screen to my ear and the screen turns off) Everytime after the call the screens is at the recents screen(Where we long press the Home Button screen) Is there a bug or something?
Hey guys, is anyone having the same problem as me?
After every call ( Or as long as I put my ear to the phone and the screen turns off) I always end up in recents screen (The one where we long press the Home Button)
Is there a fix to this, I don’t know whether this is about the proximity sensor or is it a bug?
Instagram is buggy, and download speeds are way too slow, other than that, it’s good.
Is it necessary to make a factory reset when switching between 11 cm and this, and what all needs to be adjusted for cm 12.1
Upgraded from CM 11 this Sunday…
– nearly everything including YouTube
– taking videos (green crap with stock camera and “A better Camera” app)
– Fritz!Fon App (call partners can hear you but you can’t hear them)
– Logitech Squeezebox Controller app (not related to CM 12; Controller app won’t work with Android 5 at all and Logitech has ended support)
Does anybody know how to remove the Google Search Bar?
Thanks for the excellent work giving this crappy phone more lifetime 🙂
For search bar got to home screen -> press menu soft key -> pull from bottom up -> turn off search bar.
I have the same problem with S3 mini, CM12.1 and gapps (ARM, variant stock). However I can not pull from the bottom up to turn off the search bar. Any ideas? Cheers!
Am I the only one here who is having issues with the Facebook app ?
I have problem witch install Facebook app too 🙁
We both have the same issue
What issues do you have?
I’m not able to install the facebook app at all!
It started updating the app once a day, then it stopped, but the app was not working anymore.
I’m using Facebook Lite right now, but it’s a workaround…
I have this problem too. Install Facebook app crashed.
I’m having problems too.
Hey. On my phone i found that charging via PC doesn’t work.
i installed cm12.1 by odin then i tried to update by twrp but it was not possible to update. link2sd is not working because has not SU permission because SUpro doesn’t work. I think i’ll back to CM11.
Where is download link
That was easy. Thank!
Can somebody explain why my device cant install facebook?
In my s3 mini not pass the logo
Facebook problem. Can’t install it. Any solve ?
Help me please. The s3 mini I used was full of data from the former owner who gave the phone to me. So I installed CM 12.1 to the mini. It was working almost fine. Only email and browser where stopped. Tried 2 other installs and problems getting bigger. Problem with usb. But I could stil use the usbconnection? Tried to erase via odin. The mini now starts up displaying “Teamwin”. I can’t recover because it does’nt display this option. (and I didn’t make a backup because i didn’t need the data from the former ownwer, So yes now I regret that) But I’m still hoping there is a doctor in the room. The patient is still breathing.
I’m using f2f file system. Offline charging not working.
how to root???
sorry,,, ya lo hice
hola como pudiste ser root?
Bug on My Phone :
1. Turn off suddenly when charging level reach 91%
2. Cannot Backup via TWRP (when i tap “Backup”, the phone suddenly off)
3. Cannot Offline charging
4. Cannot install Facebook Apps
5. Cannot install Real Racing 3
I upgraded from 10.x to 12.1, and 3G stopped working. Tried to add APN manually, but no dice. What are my options? (And where is this bug tracker?)
Ya perdí la fe en este proyecto sólo le está dando largas y largas para pedir colaboración de dinero no creo que no pueda hacerlo sin tantos errores tan garrafales
Hi there, TY for all your work !

My Phone keeps on randomly setting the maximum CPU to 500 MHz. Does anybody else have this issue?
As i said on my previous port (deleted) i had mobile network signal problèmes on this ROM(12.1) with my I8190N. Just downloaded CM11.0 golden.nova.20150927 and everything works fine now 😉
Beside theses problèmes, you’ve don a great job on theses ROMs, to bad i can’t enjoy CM12.1 🙁
Is it necessary to make a factory reset when switching between 11 cm and this, and what all needs to be adjusted for cm 12.1
Hidding the Clock won`t take affect, it comes back after some time.
I downloaded this rom and flashed it using twrp, but it always fails. ive done eevery step correctly. what should i do?
