  • Maxi says:

    Hi Maclaw, I have a question, the issues (no camcorder and buggy panoramic mode) are work in progress?
    Excuse me for my english, what I want to ask is if they are a specific problem with the s3 mini or they are upstream and if you think they will be solved on nearly future.
    Thanks a lot for your work!

      Install videocam illusion from play store in the meantime. Records videos and plays them with no problem

  • Seaf says:

    I really appreciate your work, Maclaw, but I didnt like this ROM.
    You should do something with battery draining in latest CM10.1 (because idk why, but my battery drains a lot on my S3 mini 🙁 )

  • Nick says:

    Did u cancel the Maclaw Recovery project?

  • keyboard not proper align. others is good

  • Adler Neves says:

    I have an I8190LUBAMB1, that its region is ZTO (Brazil), and I, unfornately, had problems with Bluetooth. When I try to turn it on, it still off… even if it’s activated by rooted shell with ifconfig. I hope that bug can be fixed soon, because I loved this rom and I really prefer playing games in android with my PS3 controller via Bluetooth, since I don’t an otg cable.
    Sorry for my bad english, I’m brasilian.

  • bob says:

    cm 10.1 much better

  • Krung-Krung says:

    Hey.. I tried this ROM what I am really impressed was the CAMERA.. the quality is Very Good..

    but I like the the your CM 10.1 than this.

    I just found this bug after installing it in the first 15 min:

    The SystemUI has stopped working
    The app drawer button needs to be pressed many times.. it doesn’t respond.
    The keyboard bottom part is also doesnt respond. the space bar along with the others needs to pressed a couple of times. I want to show you some screen shot of the errors but i don’t know how I can upload here.

    Over all I like the design. but I have to go back to your CM10.1.. 😀
