    Great work guys, as always a smooth rom. But I found a persistent bug, it appears that the phone doesn’t read the obb folders or something… well the ones I add myself, because I have a bunch of backed up games (it’s faster than to download them on the play store) and the phone says an app is of 5.53mb when the obb file is of abaut 1.6gb, so is this an error of my phone or is it the rom? thanks

  • Antonio says:

  • Mert Ada says:

  • Hello, Maclaw!
    You are doing a great job for the S3 mini!
    But the problem of locking YouTube still, I know the problem is the ROM. And if CM10.1.X upgrade to solve the problem? Still have a problem with YouTube is that the image degradation is not real in Full HD.

    Grateful for your understanding.

  • Rafael (Vzla) says:

    Awesome work guys!
    In each update improvements are substantial, only I wanted them the following if not too much trouble, it will be possible to place a configuration section of gestures, for example see the area of notifications without drag the bar.
    I think that many would appreciate…

  • Lordwin Anim says:

    Hey Maclaw, I regularly download your CyanogenMod ROMs but I still don’t understand the App2SD part because it never works for me, how did it work for you? Do you use an app to test it out or did you just enable it in the Android Kitchen?

  • Lordwin Anim says:

    And I also don’t understand offline charging, could somebody explain it to me? (I know it sounds dumb but it just sounds like normal charging, because you can do that whether you’re on or offline can’t you?)

  • Updated just now with no problems, and all seems fine so far. I was getting really good battery life anyway, so it will interesting to see what this ROM does! Offline charging… er, does that mean charging the phone when it’s turned off… because I’ve never had a problem with that either! Keep up the great work 🙂

  • Oguzhan says:

  • herbert says:

    Maclaw hi first of all thanks for your work by the great development you do for the mini s3. peirte wanted to fix the problem of the capacitive buttons light up when you touch the screen and most of the time are on. also that better battery life because in less than five hours and the rest is this perfect acabando.por very smoothly and without any fault or mistake. THANKS

  • ado77 says:

    why always s3 mini ?

  • kubakos says:

    Nice job. Works better than cm 10, no bugs for now. Thanks

  • Petter says:

    Sms app doesnt send my message

  • kubakos says:

    Hi. Seems to eat too much energy (dead in 6 h) what can i set?

  • smorgar says:

    The logo for offline charge is awesome 😀

  • Lucas says:

    for me battery has become worst, and the RIL is worst too. the lag between answering and listening voice is now evenlarger. I think it is because there are too many update. i nk i’ll wipe….

    • ipushpeople says:

      According to my stats, Android system has used 165% of the battery… I don’t know what it means but one thing is sure:
      Battery last a lot less now than using the previous immediate release =( please help us Saint Maclaw

  • hondziak says:

    Same problem as kubakos, draining battery like hell and seems to be a bit slower than privies version imo. Still grade job.

  • Simone says:

    After updates the battery lasts 6 hours, I had to wipe … now the battery lasts exactly 1 day 11 hours 48 minutes (clean with battery calibration)

  • Jia Wei says:

    seems like many user said that if wipe will have better performance :/

  • Insanius says:

    Hello, Maclaw! Can you update CM to v.10.1.3?

  • simone says:

    – off topic:
    We love ubuntu touch 😉

  • Small bug – when a call comes in, the screen stays off.

  • Well, IMO the battery life is NOT as good as the 20130908 ROM… at the end of an average day, I used to be left with 75%, now I am left with only 50%.

    • TDS says:

      Pleas look at CPU spy to determine GHz bug. After each upgrade and having WiFi enable the bug appears. Disable WiFi, shutdown, wait a few seconds, restart and enable WiFi. Have about the same battery drain with each update before (1.5 days).

  • 1000MHz bug appears to be fixed with the new 20130924 ROM. I am just going to reboot again with WiFi on… yep, CPUs on 200MHz when idle…. yay! Great work!
