    I’m desperate. Very thanks!

  • simbay says:

    Thanks to improve , I hope the AOKP , and if they can usb otg , pardon the english

  • Tyre777 says:

    Hotplug causes tearing. Better to stay on interactive + noop. But if you’re using Maclaw-Benz kernel pegasusQ + vr works great. But I haven’t really tested battery life extensively

  • MERT ADA says:

    Offline charging ?

  • Jia Wei says:

    I have a request , can you do something about how to upload video in instagram 🙂

  • Crush says:

    It can not charge when the phone power off.

  • SpaceCaker says:

    Maclaw can you make cyanogenmod 10.1 for Acer S500 Cloudmobile ?

    it has official jb 4.1.2 and cm10 but we are very struggling with the kernel and cm10.1 compilations.

    gralloc fails to compile due to missing stuff in kernel here is our cm10 source

  • Paolo Galian says:

    Still have some lags when going to the quick settings..

  • Technomancer says:

    great work mny thx but:

    – WiFi on -> Reboot -> (both) CPU Cores stuck at 1000 Mhz bug is still there
    – Charging while the phone is switched off switches it on
    – YouTube Videos still crash (Generic CM Bug, not Maclaw related afaik)

    Hotplug Governor is MUCH more efficient than Interactive

  • George says:

    We will see a slimbean and a miui v5 for our gt-i8190
    And maybe a kernel with otg support

    • dreadghost says:

      there is a wifi problem which drain battery power really fast, setting ‘keep wifi on during sleep’ to only when plugged may help…

  • Tindo says:

  • S3 User says:

  • Pitek says:

    W końcu w pełni ogarnięty ! Wielkie brawa. Jedyne co mi nie śmiga, to tryb 2G+3G, a samodzielnie te tryby działają wyśmienicie. Pozdro

  • 2 ‘not so good’ things to report on this ROM, and 2 ‘good things’ to report – first, the CPUs still get stuck on 1000Mhz if you reboot with Wi-Fi on; and second, ‘hotplug’ governor makes my phone switch off… apart from those, first, sound is now WAY better on the headphone jack, speaker and phone calls; second, the Bluetooth is fixed! Happy man… 🙂

  • kl0w says:

    I use this rom as a daily rom.
    I downloaded App2sd and doesn’t work, device not supported.
    Can you tell me how to use app2sd.
    In rest all works bln,youtube(need to all wipe to get to work) everything.
    Thanks cor your work

  • James says:

    CM10.1 s3 mini cannot import sim card contacts.

  • Max says:

    At last it seems this ROM can now be used daily without problems – i am using the Benz kernel from XDA developers – battery drain is low in standby about 1 % / hour. Even after rebooting with Wi-Fi on the drain stays low. Good work!

  • Antonio says:

    I just flashed it, but my s3 mini refuses to search any mobile network. If I try to search manually it says “Error while searching for networks”. Is there something I can enable/disable in order to fix this?

  • Washington Ribeiro says:

    Desculpe a pergunta idiota, mas não há possibilidade de cada atualização ser feita através de FOTA (cyanogen) ou só mesmo as ROMs com suporte oficial que isso funciona.

    Desculpe pelo mal inglês

    [Sorry for the dumb question, but there is no possibility of any upgrade is done via FOTA (cyanogen) or even the only officially supported ROMs that work.

    Sorry for bad english]

  • spadesbond says:

    Maclaw, I have a problem from your 20130907 build but it is a CM bug, which has already resolved:
    Your next release will build from the latest CM sources?

  • hudsonbrazil says:

    First a one say thank u so much
    And second report a bug
    My phone is getting to much hot
    Always around 100°F
    Can u help me?

    Telefone esta esquentando muito
    Em torno de 39/40 graus sempre

  • Techno Mancer says:

    The WiFi – Reboot – 1 Ghz Bug is directly related to “Location Access” -> “Access to my location = off”. When switched to on the WiFi Bug is gone.
    Please fix or check with CM Developer.

  • Thomas says:

    Hey guys great work, love the rom, everything works…. Except one thing, which bothers me, apparently when I install an apk and then move the data files to Android/obb it doesn’t read them or something, so a lot of games I have backed up can’t be installed… Is it just me or is this a general error? Thanks

  • Alex says:

    Why eliminated the aokp from 15/09/2013????
