New stable release (20150927) of CM11.0 for S3 Mini is available!

    What does “resolved stagefright issues” mean?

  • Walner says:

    Does youtube, instagram, etc videos working?

    • maqifrnswa says:

      Youtube works for me now — using the current version from the play store. I don’t know if I just got lucky or if this update fixed it. Before installing the rom I removed all youtube updates (uninstall youtube in the play store app) then after installing this rom it automatically pulled in the youtube updates from the play store – and it works…

  • Ignacio says:

    Bad update. My phone working very very slow.

      This should settle after some hours and some reboots. Very fast here. But have some services disabled for some weeks for better battery life.

    What now?

  • Mike says:

    Hi. I know it’s a longshot, but could the team get the SIM working properly in future releases?


  • Hng34 says:

    Offline charging is not working for me 🙁

  • Bohdan says:

    Anyone pls report – last release buggy or no, can flash via recovery or zip is broken?

  • Walner says:

    Netflix working?

  • Alin Narcis says:

    Whatsapp problem. Can’t sent video. It’s closing.

  • bosss says:

    why virtual ram dosent work on this kernel ?

  • Treblada says:

    Why is there almost always a md5sum mismatch for your recovery downloads? It rarely the case the the checksum matches. It has been pointed out many times.
    Are there some manipulations you guys don’t (want to) know about, are the ZIPs broken or do you simply don’t care? Macie to po prostu gdzies?

  • James says:

    I thought the Stagefright issues were resolved with release: 20150810. Why does it say that it is now resolved? Were the Stagefright issues not resolved after all?

    You couldn’t possibly be referring to the new Stagefright threat revealed just yesterday.

  • mik says:

    I think if zip is broken you can’t unzip it. So try to open it first on PC

  • SWaTcH says:

    Thanks novafusion !
    YouTube is finaly fixed! Now we can use the new YouTube APP.
    I hope you get twitch fixed too and maybe reduce the Battery drain then it will be perfect.
    And to the other the ZIP file is OK i download and install yesterday without any problems (recovery Version).

    • Unpluggt says:

      After 5 days i can say this release running really better than the last from 07/07. And Battery life is better too. Really Good Work! Thanks that you guys still working on this old device !

  • armamdo del rosario says:

    Netflix does not work when playing video Error 1018

  • Jens says:

    Recovery Installation crashes if I try to use f2fs for cache. With keep current filesystem it works.

  • geny says:

    does anyone if wifi direct works in this version?
    , i have previous anf wifi direct doesn’t work

  • jomar says:

    Contacts error.

  • _ANDROID says:

    YouTube work in the best quality?

  • Bohdan says:

    Updated my TWRP to latest Andy’s TWRP. Ather that just flashed zip CM11 27.09 without any problem.
    All partitions f2fs. Very nice release, works fast & smooth. Thanx.:)

  • bosss says:

    is possible virtual ram on this kernel ?

  • Jose says:

    Hello, I noticed in the twitch app stream doesn’t work could you fix it please. thanks!!!

  • Mike says:

    I have a question that maybe Novafusion can answer given their technical experience with Android. Why is it that every version of Android after Jelly bean is lacking proper SIM support? I am hoping that someone can maybe answer that.


  • swan says:

    Is possible use vram on this kernel?

  • Apostolis says:

    hello guys i have a problem when i turn on 3g data for internet the battery drain goes crazy my phone wont last 1 hour anyone have the same problem or any to suggest some solution

  • Avi Lev says:

    is this version including gapps or should I install it manually?

  • SPKJ says:

    We are working for cyanogenmod 13 no? 🙂
    Good job 😉

  • Marcel says:

    Unfortunately slowed down my device extremely…

  • H: Apfel says:

    Will it work on a I8200?

  • jemdem says:

    I get a “Zip file signature verification” error.

    Since it seems this “zip file verification” process seems to be problematic for a lot of users, could novafusion release the md5sums of these files for us to be able to verify them manually before flashing with signature verification disabled? (I don’t really want to flash something that hasn’t been verified…)

  • Jerry says:

    clock is crashing :/

  • Wesley Seven says:

    Can someone tell me how do I stop it from optimizing apps on reboot

  • Frank says:

    Sweet release. Thanks for fixing Youtube. Smooth and fast Android. Improved battery life. Great work. Thanks.

  • Mike says:


    I updated from the stock ROM solely because the Stage Fright issue was never fixed. Thanks for that.

    -I get this constant update/optimization loop on boot, please fix.

    -battery profile seems to be corrupted and even using a 3rd party app doesn’t seem to fully fix the issue (I charged to 100%, reset the profile, reboot and it shows about 80 or 90% charged).

    -please, PLEASE fix the 2G/3G switch.

    -battery drains really fast! I had my phone fully charged last night, used about 20% of the battery, woke up and it was down to 50%. When I rebooted the battery dropped to about 15%, that’s not right (and no my battery is perfectly fine because I don’t have that issue on stock ROM and all apps were closed).

    -please fix SIM Toolkit issue and SIM access. Shouldn’t need a pin to access it and you should be able to read/write to and from the SIM. Seriously, why is that an ongoing issue in every modified stock ROM version outside of Jellybean?

    -if you can’t fix the auto brightness function on KitKat could you maybe strip out the function in future releases? It’s kinda pointless it being there. You can always use 3rd party apps. Thanks.

    -Google Partner Setup crashes every time.

    Bugs related to GT-I8190N.

    Thanks for all the hard work!

    • Mike says:

      Another bug: default email client won’t connect to any accounts.

      • Mike says:

        A few more bugs to fix. AOSP keyboard swipe doesn’t work, and the default contacts messenger part crashes when you choose “conversation options”.

        That’s all for now. Thanks!

        • Mike says:

          It seems battery life on standby is really good with the right settings. Mobile Data, Bluetooth off and all apps closed , 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS (device only), and Sync on.

          I got a 3% battery drop in about 12 hours leaving the device on standby. Not to bad. My only gripe is that charging takes quite a few hours when the device is being used, that’s via USB.

          My settings were as above with no battery saver apps, CPU governor set to “ABYSSPLUG”, I/O scheduler set to “NOOP”.

          Battery rundown time while in use is quite bad. Using Nova Launcher and swiping between 4 screens all with widgets and a live wallpaper (smoke), I am getting about a 1% battery drop even 1 minutes 30 seconds. So could be room for improvement in that are.

          Keep up the good work!

          • Mike says:

            Every not even.

          • Mike says:

            With battery related problems I found another one that may interest the team. I was using “Nokia Here Maps” while charging via USB and it was using the battery. I never had that problem on stock ROM so might need some tweaking.

  • nht.ctn says:

    I have optimizing apps on reboot problem too. Did I do something wrong?

  • Tom says:

    thanks for the release, really good battery time! does anybody have the android updates every time when reboot?

  • -battery drains really fast….is only problem for me
    thanks for your hard work and We are working for cyanogenmod 13 without bugs and error cm12

  • Hernagon says:

    I tried others roms with lollipop like Omnirom and the battery also drains so fast. I think it is a problem between Lollipop and s3 mini

  • nmd113 says:

    On youtube the video quality is very bad…please fix hw video decoding!! The rom is great but this is the missing part.

  • Javier says:

    I can´t install Facebook app, and UBER app y whatsapp can´t be moved to SD card.
