  • Mateusz says:

    What exactly does app2sd support mean? Is it just the standard way Android moves apps to sdcard or will it support sd-ext partition (through S2E for example)?
    Great to know CM10.1 has finally arrived to our devices, downloading it right now!

  • Aman says:

    I think you may now give more attention to our s3 mini cm10.1
    they have so many roms and we don’t have at least one working custom rom with no issues

    • Macław says:

      Because QCom (producent of Ace/Gio board) still updating sources, even for JB, when STEricsson sources died on ICS. Isn’t it enough?

  • Ravindra Thoriya says:

    oh my god…

  • Ullas Manju says:

  • sinuhetmerlin says:

    any updates about the s3 mini?

  • Pop says:

    I’ve installed this ROM and it looks fine so far.
    However, Gallery is showing every photo as video.
    Can this happen because I’ve not wiped anything ?
    Is Gallery working fine to any one ?

  • acid says:

    works in galaxy s 3 mini ???

  • raul says:

    Does anyone knows is Sim Toolkit is present in this ROM? If not, would it work to restore with Titanium Sim Toolkit from CM9 ?

  • Tri says:

    as ussualy for every rom from smooth, fast & battery friendly. I think you forget to add dsp manager in this rom because lib files for dsp manager still in there but this not problem for me because i can port it from your CM9 rom and now it work very well..big cheers for you all dev..

  • Pocok says:

    So far the rom is great, quiet stable. I’m going to report one issue in the bugtracker: FC happens if you try to enable/disable HW rendering for specific apps.

    Regarding the speed: it is ok, little bit slower (245/800Mhz) than the stock rom, but hey, it is still great!

    Awesome job, thanks guys!

  • Burak says:

    every thing working so smooth. thank you very much. i appreciate your hard work.

    another amazing rom thanks

  • Guys, my ace is running the Maclaw’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 (AOSP) final 1 and I have tried to update it to this rom, but it isn’t working… What could the cause be?

  • fatih says:

    How the battery? a day is enough?

    • Pocok says:

      Without any installed app, mine drained in 22 hours. I had only 6 phone calls, and 30 minutes of internet usage only and 10 minutes wifi. I have to note, that my battery is 1 year old.

  • Adrian says:

    hey maclaw can you suggest me one fm radio app out there.. I can only find internet radio apps on the internet?

  • Betray says:

    Nie chce mi załapać jakiejkolwiek lokalizacji w zegarze z cm do pogody, ni to przez wi fi ni przez gps. Może tyklko ja mam taki problem ;q
    Dziękówa wam za rom 🙂

  • SilenZ says:

    Wow Maclaw and team you guys keep on going with good releases! Is the SIM pin screen “fixed” to good size in this ROM? In de AOSP the numbers are not fully displayed. Thanks!

  • Hi, first of all. Thanks for your hard work. I installed the rom and it looks smooth. Only one thing, is it normal that i can’t add an APN to the device? This way I can’t use my data. Cheers

  • game says:

    Thx :))

  • Otebb says:

  • Schlossig says:

    Testing it for 3 days now and not a single FC or crash!!! Just like a stock rom but JB 🙂 Once again thanks to Maclaw Studios to this awsome rom!!! Simply perrfect

  • André Castaldi says:

    Hi Maclaw and thanks again for your great job for our gio and Ace.
    Just a question : do i have to do a full wipe if i update from CM9 final 3?
    I don’t think so but i’m not sure!

  • magicseeker says:

    Torch? It comes as native with the other cm versions.

    • Macław says:

      If there is too little storage on /system, we have to decide to remove Torch or GPlay… Guess what we selected?

      Why just you can’t download any torch app from Market?

  • Kwesi Paintsil says:

    I’ve been following Maclaw a while now from Ghana and I must say, you’re so awesome 🙂

  • chetan kate says:

    Dis rom is gud but I like to tell you dat plzzz take only jelly bean rom for stable release, as evryone want dat jelly bean rom stable

  • lourenço says:

    do i need to wipe aosp ics final2? or upgrage?

    • Giowner says:

      Try to install it without wiping data/factory reset.
      If it doesn’t work, you can still do it later on.

      (Btw, DO wipe cache and dalvik-cache!)

  • Luis Ramos says:

    Hi! Thanks for the great work! This was the first rom I’ve ever installed 🙂 I wanted to install the mobilevoip app on my father in law samsung ace, but his android version (2.3.5) didn’t allowed. With your rom it worked fined! Just a coupe of issues: Kies stopped working with the device (had to extract the backup, passed every vcard to dropbox and add it one by one by one to the contacts app… probably there’s a better way but I don’t know how). Also, is there a way to put the lockscreen as the old one, with only “unlock” and “no sound” options? Finally, is there a way to save the PIN so he doesn’t have to insert it every time the cellphone boots?
    Thanks again for your amazing work!

  • masruri3 says:

    What you mean wipe everything and when should i do that ?

  • Vidar says:

    There are no overclocking settings?

  • airteam says:

    Great rom. it’s there a way i can get the SD-ext to work so I can say it as default app location.

  • Konrad says:

    in my opinion the AOSP version of 4.2.2 is more smooth and faster than cyanogen

  • Jairo Betancourt says:

    you are rigth!!!! “first and great release”, it´s wrking prcefect for me, thanks

  • mistercis says:

    I love this room! very smooth!
    But I have a problem: The weather widget doesn’t work because i can’t add no location: ex: Paris. it’s says something like “can’t find location”. Someone else have this problem? It is possible to fix it?
    Tank You.

  • Sergio says:

    About the camera, record at 640×480 or not?

  • Luis Ramos says:

    Lovely rom, first one I’ve installed! 🙂 Done it on my father in law Samsung Galaxy Ace 🙂
    Is there a way to use the old lock screen (with options only for unlock and “no sound”)? And is it possible to set the battery icon (status) on the top bar?

  • Tri says:

    go to setting=>performance, you’ll see the overclock setting as you desired…

    • gorgar2 says:

      I don’t see this option on my ACE (Jellybean 4.2.2 (CyanogenMod 10.1) 20130513)

      • gorgar2 says:

        correction – I found it :
        Go to Settings > About Phone
        – Scroll down to the bottom and select Build Number
        – Tap Build Number about seven times until the hidden Developer Options is unlocked

  • iDuty says:

    If you do CM10.1 then surely it is based on the JB 4.2.X, so why in downloads yet still CM10?

  • kanishth says:

    Swap support!! xD
    Maclaw Studios is amazing! 😀

  • RAHMAT says:

    photo show as video,,i have wipe everythink..can you help me?what should i do?

    • Macław says:

      No way for this bug on CM10.1, write at forum, maybe someone was experiencing this issue and can help you.

  • gaferreira says:

    Great work Maclaw, but before installing I have a quick question – Does hardware acceleration work properly? Because I’ll be playing a lot of games and performance goes DOWN like in early JB roms for Gio/Ace…

  • Joao says:

  • Jan says:

    I’d like to say thanks for your hard work. This rom is the best! =) I guess it is not related to you, but in this rom included calculator makes wrong calculations of trigonometric functions (i.e. cos, sin etc)

  • Manas says:

    coOl Rom Maclaw…. 🙂

  • blah says:

    E: Cant open /sdcard/ redownloaded 3 times and tried on 3 different sdcards. Any solution for that?

  • Kaushal says:

    no sd partition for this rom???

  • Wiliam says:

    I tested this rom since it was uploaded and the use becomes slow and there are applications like facebook and on some occasions the dialing keypad facing forced closure like the camera. Please AOSP JB!

  • Ravindra says:

    HI.. Maclaw how r u???

    i think you can create GOOGLE ALL APPS IN ONE PACKAGE for GALAXY ACE 5830

    AND update more reliable and fast version CM 10(JB) for GALAXY ACE 5830…

  • dwiki satrawan says:

    how to screen capture with this custom rom?
    for example with gingrebread push on/ff power+menu button,

  • Tri says:

    Just want to inform, I combine this rom with fly on mod tweak script fom slaid480 and the smoothness is more better.

  • Mr. T. says:


    @Maclaw and team: Thanks for this great job, its not easy to combine this hobby with real life.
    In the other hand, is there a plan to make CM10.x or AOSP JB to work on the rest of Ace models 5830l/c/i/m?

    Thank you.

  • randomuser says:

    Hehe first time flashing a rom and directly to the best i hope. Why no md5 though? Mine is 56794c6319acec2eceffabe4bc2f1ef0 (gio) . Thanks in advance for your hard work 🙂

  • CharliecRosas says:

    sorry but in this rom, I installed a few weeks ago in my galaxy ace s5830L, but it has some flaws, takes pictures but at one point closing force, and the gallery has a problem with the photo editor, I open and close force, I hope and can solcucionar that problem beforehand.
    thank you very much

    • Burak says:

      I have same problem. Everything great but i can not use camera. It says unfortunately gallery has stopped very often. If it takes one photo it gives this error 4-5 times after this. Please find a solution for that because i really want to use this great rom.

  • AlexGR says:

    Hi this the first time I use your rom, but I got a question: what kind of keyboard is available here?, because I’m just prefer the aplhanumeric one instead of querty type.

    Appart of that and thanks to the shared gallery of @zack09 I’m just have to say ¡Good Work!

  • kachman says:

    how long does it take to boot after first install? I installed and its still at “maclow mod” bootscreen for like 10 minutes now.

  • tiago says:

    I’m also having problems with being stuck at boot animation… Already did the wipes, and whatnot :S

  • Mikko says:

    I’ve installed this release on a Gio, and it seems to be running well.

    I’ve been following the discussion about CM10 on low-end Sony Xperia devices on the xda-developers forum. The FreeXperia project is apparently not porting CM10.1 to anything that has less than a gigabyte of memory and a high-end processor, although they have CM10 for low-end devices. The user ‘adfad666’ over there wrote that CM10.1 would not run well on MSM7x27 devices (such as the Gio) because of this:

    adfad666: “The main cause of this appears to be the multiuser support added to 4.2 which is running even on devices that can only have 1 user. This causes a LOT of unnecessary processing that msm7x27a chips simply cannot handle well.”

    This seems pretty unlikely to me. Why should multiuser capability cause any extra “processing” in a single-user session? Macław, would you care to comment?

    (The link to the forum: )

    • Macław says:

      Because it have to make more threads of some processes. So it’s true.

      • Mikko says:

        Ok, thanks for replying. Would you say that there’s a noticeable difference in responsiveness or battery life on the Gio between CM10 and CM10.1?

        I haven’t tried CM10 on the Gio, but I don’t really see much of a difference between CM10 on a similar device and CM10.1 on the Gio.

  • andre says:

    works on samsung galaxy ace s5830C?

    • Macław says:

      Hmmm… You can try on S5830C, I never received any feedback from C users. Let me know if it’ll work.

  • […] informasi yang sebetulnya sudah sedikit telat. Hehe.. Saya katakan sedikit telat karena firmware  CyanogenMod 10.1 Final Release Samsung Galaxy ACE sudah release sejak bulan lalu, tepatnya pada tanggal 13 Mei […]

  • Nemesis says:

    does this support S2E.. i know technically CM should support it but just wanna be sure abt it cuz im very dependent on it since the internal memory of ace is very low.. can anyone who hav installed it let me know if S2E is functional? pls let me know asap… thanx in advance

    • Nemesis says:

      ok i already installed it couldnt wait more=P but yea realized tht S2E isnt supported=( could anyone let me know of a similar method by which i can move app data n dalvik cache to the ext partition???

  • Cesar says:

    On samsung Gio, I cant use 3g connection, it doesn’t work.

  • Cesar says:

    And every lock screen, wifi connnection is lost.

  • samrat says:

    google play not working for me …… cannot install any app , error downloading the requested app …… this is the msg i recieved …. thnx for the app ….

  • LYW says:

  • Peter K. says:
