  • Tätärää says:

    yeaah one quest. is this in german ?? or only english ?

    • aluk4rd says:

      Its pretty multilangual. i have it in german 😉 also keine angst 🙂

    • TDS says:

      Multilanguage. Just factory reset and wipe cache and Advanced|Dalvik Cache. After this your Handy is ready to run the setup wizzard where you can change your language. Alternative in settings => language.
      Mache Factory Reset und Wipe Cache sowie den Dalvik Cache löschen. Danach sollte der Setup Wizzard starten. Sonst unter Einstellungen => Language (bzw. Sprache).

  • mert says:

    İ cant find on download page

  • DOF Factory says:

    Why is this NOT under the “S3 Mini” section on this page? The same as the previous news about Android 4.3 for S3 Mini … grrr

  • TDS says:

    10.1 is sperately. One with Android 4.1 (10) and one with 4.2 (10.1). Both are developed.

  • Kevin says:

    Recommended for daily use!?

  • Alex says:

    the 3d acceleration on game temple run 2 run perfect?

  • novacrap says:

    Yes, there is still the tearing problem (not serious but you can live with it) cause OMX dec/enc weren’t fully fixed/enabled.

  • Alex2553 says:

    3D Accelleration full working on Temple run 2, subway surfers?

  • Antonio says:

    OMG! You have fixed camcorder!
    Seriously maclaw, you are the best developer I ever saw, you make that crappy OMX to work when nobody else was capable to do it. Keep up the good work.

  • Fulvio says:

    thanks, I tried the release but the problem is that it does not work APN. I can not even save them. how can I do?

    ps: sorry for the english but I’m Italian.

    • TDS says:

      Disable WiFi. Enable flight mode. Reboot. Disable Flight mode. Select provider or choose automatic. Wait a few seconds. Select your APN. Enable WiFi.
      Problem is that after every reebot the challenge starts from the beginning.

  • Elias says:

    Hello and many thanx for your amazing work!!!
    I want to ask if this release has fm radio support?
    Sorry if this question has allready been answered.

  • Dreadghost says:

    Seems to be almost full functional … Good work

  • Tätärää says:

    I have a problem that my phone goes not in deep sleep mode, (akku go fast <)

    • TDS says:

      Try WiFi on demand. Means that you have to uncheck alway on wifi in settings.
      Deutsch: WLAN => Menutaste => Erweitert => Im Standby-Modus aktiv lassen => Nur wenn angeschlossen

      • Tätärää says:

        ok i have found the problem, its a service called gpslocationprovider, when i start facebook or other location apps (juice defender or weather.com app) it will start automatic. But i don´t know why this service not close, or go to deep sleep. In Google location service is gps disabled, and in other apps to ….

        • ad this problem!
          Crossbreeder me the solution!
          The interactive governor, after 30 minutes, start to function properly!
          deep sleep to go after him too!

        • Macław says:

          FB app is bugged, we cannot handle with it. Or Facebook on 4.1 or deepsleep.

        • TDS says:

          Okay, now i see the problem. Even if WiFi should be on when plugged it’s always on. Seems that the new WiFi driver is not going into deep sleep. Will switch back to stock today :-/

  • Karlis says:

    Is deep sleep working now?

    • Tätärää says:

      i have disabled all location settings (gps – wlan – mobilfunk ;P)
      and now deep sleep works perfect 😉 😉 😉
      (also alles was bei einstellungen -> standortzugriff steht)
      sorry for bad english

  • Eden says:

    Are you going to do something for 3000 likes achieved? 🙂

  • lucas says:

    BT not working. Just was able to turn on once then stopped working. It is always in “enabling Bt “..

  • Marco says:

    many bugs with many games
    flickered annoying when scrolling

  • Martin says:

    My Whatsapp´s notifications doesn’t work any more, It appears on status bar but the notification sound doesn’t reproduced. I reinstall the app and doesnt works. Any idea?

    • TDS says:

      Try to remove it from app center. First stop application. Second delete data. Third uninstall app. Restart. Re-Install.

  • TheW7U11 says:

    Can you begin develop also Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

    • TDS says:

      Hmm, do read the entire site and can find anything about Nexus? You can install nearly all google releases on Nexus, not only Samsung ones. Btw, Android 4.3 is supported by Nexus phones from Samsung, LG and Google. We only have 4.2 still now.

  • TDS says:

    Okay, I’ve tested it the last two days. It’s more stable and faster than previous version. Camcorder with full resolution lags. Reduced resolution okay. Panorama mode okay. Some applications are draining battery because of not went to background (e.g. 1x Google Play Store 2013-07-28, 1x FB 2013-07-29, 1x Whatsapp 2013-07-29) -> Killing them manually helped. Deep sleep is a gambling: WLAN always only in standby didn’t help. Sometimes deep sleep is working sometimes not => battery drain (80% in 10 hours in with normal usage).
    But: If you develop it with these miletone steps I think YOU can and WE (as testers) can make it possible 😉

  • George Lightning says:
