RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.1

New stable release (20160424) of CM12.1 for S3 Mini is available!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

    CM12.1 is already very good and stable enough. Maybe its time to focus on CM13. Thanks so much NOVA, you’re simply the BEST.

      Actually, I never really cared about Marshmallow, it looks and feels completely the same, so why take all the time they could spend making 12.1 PERFECT and use it to leave 12.1 in okay state and 13 in okay state too?

        You’re right mate but the truth is that not all bugs can be fixed but maybe a higher version could solve some bugs like the offline charging and USB OTG, even the drivers not being recognised in PC and slow long charging. Upgrades are always helpful.

    Thanks, great works. I hope in the future we can move the apps to the sd.

    Facebook still gives me the 504 install error

  • Elvitek says:

    Always the same bug more than 3 months:

    1. When the phone is off and charging, don’t see the animation of the battery charging and the phone turn on in automatic.
    2. It’s impossible to install the official Facebook app (Only the Facebook Lite app works, or apk or with the modication of DPI, 240 to 280).
    3. The app will not move to sd card (I mean the native app2sd, not Link2sd or other)

  • vmct92 says:

    Very stable relase, but when the battery charge reaches 90% or more, the phone restarts

      Same problem with Google Keyboard

  • zemc77 says:

    Does anybody else have a problem with the Facebook app? First install is successful, but trying to update or re-install it with throw a -504 error. I already tried wiping cache, wiping Play Store and Play Services data, I tried downloading and manually installing the apk (also throws an error), I’ve wiped everything (Internal storage and SD card) and done a fresh reinstall of CM, and the problem persists. It ONLY happens with the Facebook app, all other apps work and update without problems.
