  • aluk4rd says:

    I dont know why, i cant register to bugtracker ^^

    I noticed just several small issues:

    – BT dont working (nothing new, saw the other poste;) )
    – When i put a headphone in the AUX, there s no notification in the bar, gut it works anyway then
    – i dont know why, but a lot of my google contacts were not downloaded from the google server. I can see them in Whatsapp, just with the number but i cant save them from there.
    – when i try to change the icons on the screenlocker, an error appears (tryed it several times)
    – Sound profiles semms not to working. not the stock one and not with an app. the sound just stays as it was.

    But the rest is really cool 🙂 🙂

    • Macław says:

      1. Reboot Your phone. Sam Google why by driver on 4.2 sucks. It’s good for us that it even work.
      2. Headset icon in statusbar exists only on stock rom because samsung has added it.
      3. Wipe?
      4. Wipe?
      5. Wipe?

      • aluk4rd says:

        1. not worked, bur i know there is a problem
        2. okey, good to know 😉
        3. it was my fault, now it works
        4. worked with wipe
        5. worked with wipe too 😉

        but not its the battery, whats going down really fast….2-3 times a day on the charger =(


    I think that screen flickering is still there. It is less, but still we got it here.

  • massimo says:

    usual problem with sim card (no connection, only emergency calls) … i8190 italy

  • Klaus says:

    I had some problems installing, as after restore at some time I always succeeded in fixing cpu freq at 1GHz… But after the forth time and very cautios restores it works flawlessly! No drain notified.

    (And if we could get BLN…. 🙂 )


  • dolicious says:

    BT not working,any solution? Overall its awesome..smooth and good battery life

  • Jesseee says:

    I haven’t got GPS to work.. Anyone else had problems with that?

  • Marc says:

    I have problems reading the SIM card. Connections, everything is fine. But “contacts” tells me there are no contacts on the sim.
    tried some other SIM tools from playstore, but all tells the same. How to DEbug/fix?
    Simcard in other device has contacts on it!!


  • Marc says:

    I have problems reading the simcard.
    Everything is fine, EXCEPT reading the contacts.
    Tried “contacts” and some other tools from playstore. All tell me that there are no contacts on the SIMcard.
    If I put the sim in other phones everything is still fine.
    How to debug/fix?


  • renzow22 says:

    download link plss..

  • Gator says:

    What about battery life guys is it better than at stock rom or dmod v6?

    • klaus says:

      I had some problems after restore of data, but after some reinstalling and cautious partial restores I now have great battery life, better than enox rom, which I was using before

      Definitely my rom! (Gps works for me in tests, did not yet test bt. Only missing bln 🙂 )

    • Oliver says:

      dmod v6 have an delay issue with the notification thats why im back to stock rom until dmod v7

    • Klaus says:

      I *absolutely* love it. Right now I have 3 days battery life for my moderate usage. Stock oder enox gave my 1,5 to two days.

      Granted, right now I don’t have BLN nor Auto Brightness, but the last one did not need that much juice…


  • Marek says:

    thanks a lot 😀 the best rom ..

  • jumper says:

    No hosepipe for me either. Everything else seems good. Desperate to use this romantic.

  • jumper says:

    Predictive text error! Should read “gps” not “hosepipe”

  • academo says:

    Working perfect in I1890L Colombia

  • Marcos Gonzalez says:

    Amazing work Maclaws! Here everything is working except by recording videos. Tip: you can change the default camera by the google edition one, it has sphere and works great in our phone! Can wait for next releases. Greetings from a brazilian fellow ! Ps: i have the L version of s3 mini.

  • Faabri says:

    I have the bluetooth problem, davilcache I deleted the cache, defaults, reboot, shutdown and I can not make it work. The rest perfect, the only doubt I have not checked yet is how he does the battery to each. thanks

    A Maclaw working genius!

  • moigooner says:

    It works with my i8190n and sofar there seems to be no bugs or problems 😀 Thanks a lot ! But I’ve still got one question: can I flash the Gapps package for the official CM 10.1 ? Thank you again!

  • Min says:

    question…how long does it take to reboot? Help please. The screen has been stuck at the CM circle loading screen (i guess) for 5 hours. Maclaw, help!

  • neuländer says:

    First of all thanks for your great work!
    Everything i need works great for me but i have a problem:
    I experienced a high battery drain so I checked BetterBatteryStats and noticed that kernel wake lock ”gps-lock” and partial wake lock ”gpslocationprovider” keep my phone from going into sleep mode although my GPS is always turned off.
    My battery wouldn’t last longer than 7 hours so i performed a full wipe.
    I disabled GPS and installed nothing except from BetterBatteryStats, turned the screen off and checked BetterBatteryStats after some hours. The same wake locks prevented my phone from going into deep sleep.
    I noticed that if I reboot in offline mode everything is fine but after some hours the wake locks reappear and make my battery suffer. So I went back to stock rom 🙁
    Is this a known issue? Is there a way to solve the problem?

  • Luke says:

    Hello guys, thx so much 4 your release. its working great.
    i’ve got 1 issue. often the screen doesnt turn on when call is incoming.

    but sometimes it does.
    can u help me?
    Dziekuje bardzo!
