RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.1

New stable release (20160718) 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.

    Hey there, what does it means major battery fixes ? The previous version still have the “bug” that when loading the battery if the phone is switched off, suddenly it turns on. Is this fixed ?

  • sts says:

    The Odin file for kitkat 4.4 cyanogenmod is missing, please reupload it

  • Laurent says:

    It’s impossible to install the SELINUX ?

  • Diego Leonel says:

    I had problems with offline charging and battery with the “12.1-20160524-UNOFFICIAL-golden” going to try this new one. Thanks.

  • Javier says:

    Thanks !!!! You Are Great !!!!!.

    The only thing i´m wait its f2fs filesystem.

  • David Polly says:

    I don’t wanna be annoying, but… what about CM13? It got cancelled?

    • Sonny101 says:

      I think they know the first releases are useless since nobody will ever use them so they will simply release it from versions which are at least stable and functional

  • azael says:

    Does anyone know if I can move my wing and Micro SD?

  • DALIA says:

    work s3 mini i8200 ???

  • Diego says:

    I still cant charge the phone offline. Do i need to do something?

    • Steve says:

      I had the same problem with previous builds. But it looks that even though major changes in battery have been done, the problem persist ?
      Do you have the same behaviour. The phone is switched off you plug in the power cable and suddenly the phone switches on again ?

  • Sonny101 says:

    Apps started to suddenly crash in this update, all of them freeze for about 3 seconds and then “[app] stopped working”…

  • Johnie says:

    No problems, batery life is pretty good, thanks a lot.

  • There is still a very low volume in voice calls, i can barerlly hear a thing, i have to put the speaker to hear voice, in this room and also in ressurection remix.

  • Frank says:

    Excellent version. Markedly improved battery life. This is great. Thank you.

  • Klaus says:

    Hm, don’t know why, but somehow my comments alsways disappear here – at least I don’t find them in the cronological order… However, regarding my last comment I want to let you know that after reinstall the google apps package the google apps work fine again. The only unresolved issue left for my point of view is that still fb app doesn’t install. Otherwise everthing seems to be mch more stable and quicker then in version I was using before (somehow from march this year). Congratulation to the team!

  • Helmut Jarausch says:

    Can anybody please tell me if this firmware supports 64GB SD XC card.
    If yes, does it make sense to use a very fast one like class 10 U3?
    Many thanks,

    • Elmario says:

      Yes it does support 64GB. I don’t know at which speed, but I’d guess that it could reach speeds of about 30MByte/s.

  • Klaus says:
