  • magicseeker says:

    I was wondering… Google and Cyanogen have release a patch about the new apk-level issue in Android (bug 9695860). It has to do with the security of our phone. Did you include it in this release? Or are you planning to do it in the next? I think it is a priority-one issue, since it has to do with our security.

  • unknown says:

    Anyone experiencing a lock screen bug with the music controls? I see an empty lock screen and have to swipe it to see the music controls.

  • Rawysz says:

    Mam poprzednią wersję i nie chce mi się robić czystej instalacji. Rozumiem, że jeśli wcześniej usunąłem kilka aplikacji systemowych, czcionki i media, ten update je doinstaluje na nowo? Mam więc pytanie.

    1. Czy mogę (w sensie – czy to zadziała) rozpakować ściągnięty zip z romem, wywalić co mi niepotrzebne, spakować jeszcze raz i tak zainstalować?

    2. Czy mogę w ten sam sposób dodać Gapps do paczki z romem? I tak to zainstaluję, więc po co osobno.

  • Chetan Kate says:

  • Andriy says:

    First of all, thanks for great ROM. But I have one question – how can I turn on quick access buttons on the “notifications sunblind”? In previous ROM I had 5 buttons, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth etc.

  • lourenço says:

    how do i intall google apps?

  • Diogo Lemos says:

    Does it have Init.d support? Need for sd-ext.

  • Diogo Lemos says:

    Love the inclusion of the DSP Manager and the Email application. Voice Search now works too. Great ROM. Seems faster than the previous versions!

  • Chandra says:

    First of all Great work from you guys. I have noticed some small issues in Conference call and switching from music to call, for this we have to plug out and plug in the head set jack to hear the call. Search widget is not of 4.2.2 it would look great if it like the nexus kind of search widget. As in earlier comments Live wall papers are not loading and Rest is a like cream. Thanks you once again guys for giving us awesome ROMS.

  • Diogo Lemos says:

    It would be great to have already the updated version of the Google Play.
    Also forgot to mention the option to turn on/off the screen-off animation is a very welcome addition.

  • fany says:

    hello, thanks for your work above, I love my samsung ace s5830 and thanks to you I have not been outdated but the bad thing is the battery is exhausted soon, even more, it recharges way too soon and runs even faster by example , when it gets plugged in 100%, when you put 90% disconnect when I open any application and put 80% and so on, and dropped me an application to calibrate the battery without any result, ahy some help for this .. …

    so sorry if I do not understand me (I’ve translated with google)

  • wafa says:

    maclaw, is this rom have `init.d´ in it?

  • marciba says:

    well you need go to mounts and storage>format system,data,chache and reinstall the all package after a wipe

  • likusolic says:

    if the “telephone contact group” if the menu has options
    “send sms” would be better

    sorry my bad language

    Tried to install both the CM10 as CM9 on Gio GT-S5660 with TWRP, but no succes. It is stuck on the boot screen…CM9 will continue past the boot screen, but give a encryption error message explaining i need to make a factory reset, but if I do this it doesn’t fix the error…what i am doing wrong?

    I started from fresh factory reset => root the phone => install TWRP =>None of the ROMS will go past boot..

  • lucas says:

    I’ve tried on my ace. works fine, but i don’t like the trebuchet interface. I’d prefer go launcher. installed it works fine, but now i’ve double launcher..it would be nice to remove the unused one…may it be possible?

    • Diogo Lemos says:

      Use the File Manager and go to System/System/App and remove the Trebuchet.apk file. Only remove it if you have another Launcher.

  • Carlos says:

  • T13 says:

    Bluetooth doesnt work…
    What have I do wrong ?

  • Hi! I have three problems with the latest release (July 17th 2013) on my Gio:
    1) your bug report system does not send me my password so I cannot login and submit my problems there!
    2) The contacts on my SIM cards are not listed (hopefully they were not erased!)
    3) The USB accessory support does not work (it is declared but it does not work)
    Microchip has made a free app “Accessory Support Detection” to test this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microchip.android.AccessorySupportDetection&amphl=en
    Thanks for your nice work!

  • LYW says:

    Maclaw, can i port your rom?

  • kozi says:

    Gapps don’t work in my Gio. I don’t have idea why.
    There’s no problem with install at other Maclaw’s ROMs but in 10.1 after zip is installed in CWM and device is rebooted there is no any gapp in system.
    I’ve tried zip from this site and from others (allways gapp for 10.1) and problem is te same.
    ROM flashed few times, gapps the same. Full wipe done.
    Any sugestions how to resolve this ?

  • JD says:

    Hi, I just installed this ROM on my Gio and noticed that screen rotation works (even for lockscreen, which I set to rotate), but not for the home screen (It doesn’t go into landscape). Is that normal? (In previous CM’s it rotated fine)
