    Bravo Maclaw <3

  • carlosseven says:

    Oh thanks!! It´s a beautiful work! I have a question about RIL… My 3G network connects and disconnects always!! 🙁

    • elcoyotex says:

      To my also happens to me and the truth that is a bummer. The rom is perfect only would solve that annoying “small” detail.

      Thanks Maclaw by your effort, would be very grateful if you give solution to the problem of the 3 G.

      Thanks and greetings.

    • spadesbond says:

      I think, the problem is in 2G/3G button settings. Set this to 2G/3G, and not 2G/3G+2G.

      • elcoyotex says:

        I’ve tried it, but it keeps disconnecting also. My company is Orange Spain, if it has any relevance…
        Also thank you for your help, thank you.

    • Alejandro Quiroz says:

      That’s a strange issue at least in Mexico the 3G works pretty well, just check and configure the Mobile Network Settings and the APN, despite it download the config from the movil network there was some options that was wrong and i correct from another device.

      • ipushpeople says:

        Hi Alejandro, I have a s3mini “n” model and I have never had something different than edge here in México, is that normal? I’m in telcel

  • hudsonbrazil says:

    The Heating bug is fixed???

    Because my phone is getting hot all time!!!

    • aluk4rd says:

      its not the “heating” bug its the 1000MHz bug….. when its is so: WiFi off, Internet off, AirplaneMOD and then Shutdown (now restart) after 10 sec’s reboot again and turn Wifi and so on on. And airplanemod off 😉

      • technomancer42Technomancer says:

        not working.
        the reason for the 1000MHz bug is “WiFi on + GPS off” then reboot/shutdown, this triggers it.
        This works: Turn either WiFi off or GPS on before you reboot/shutdown…

  • ivansete says:

    sometime ago i saw a comment from maclaw saying that the s3 mini was able to record in 1080p with the proper programming and i was wondering if that dream could possibly come true soon!!!!

  • carlos says:

    Maclaw,your rom on my S3 mini L is amazing, my only problem is the battery,just a little, U DA BEST

  • spanman says:

    Thanks Maclaw I can confirm wifi mac address is fixed in this release. One thing I notice when I install CM10.1 I can no longer connect to my 5Ghz AP however with AOKP it works. Settings on AP is :

    Wireless Network Mode : 5Ghz
    Channel Width: Turbo 40Mhz
    Wireless Channel – 149 (5745 Mhz)
    Extension Channel – upper

    Excellent work.

  • paulinho says:

  • esteban says:

    i have a problem. why my camera doesn’t work. “unfortunately, gallery has stopped”. can you help me??

  • Omar Ss says:

    I’m just getting to know this ROM. I only have some commment/questions for anyonw who could help me.

    * Where is the performance option where you could see the frecuency at the moment or choose the ones to like with the cpu governor selection?

    * Just googled and it seems that CM doesn’t have FM Radio or a way to make it work, right?

    * I’m testing battery life, no comments so far.

    Excellent work, great icon when charging and thanks!!!

  • Zokky says:

    Hy Maclaw! Why CallRecorder application does not work on any CM10 roms on my s3mini !?

  • Jesseee says:

    Hi maclaw nice work as always! There’s one thing that I’m wondering and I’m not sure is it bug or just normal. When I have sounds off and I touch things like menu icon and stuff from settings, speaker of the phone kind of activates for couple seconds. If u put your ear close the speaker u can hear little shhh noise. Am I the only one experiencing this or is it just normal? I know it may sound little bit stupid since it shouldn’t really make any difference, but I’m just wondering. Thank you maclaw, you are the most important guy (your team as well) for s3 mini owners!

    • fulvio says:

      I have the same problem.

      • Jesseee says:

        Okay. That seems to exist also on other phones running android.. I disabled all unnecessary sounds from system, since it has been keeping my mediaserver somehow awake. So everything fine now! 🙂

      • smorgar says:

        Same for me too, been like this for as long as i have been running maclaws cm. Sounds like the vibrator kicks in for a millisecond but it actualy comes from the speaker as you say.

    • fulvio says:

      gate what I wrote. I put the original fimware and the slight sound can still be heard.
      sorry for the English

  • Fulvio says:

    Every touch of the screen the SPEAKER emits noiose.

  • Gio says:

    re: “Wifi MAC address is now correct!”

    Is this related to the change in MAC address I mentioned on XDA? (see )?

    Will the ROM now report the same address as stock?

  • aspros00088 says:

    the update of pacrom please

  • Renato Aguiar says:

    This version is amazing. Great work!

  • Alex says:

    Meclaw and guys.
    But the flash this version 24/04 whitouth wipe data with my version 19/09 wipe data?

    • Squashimo says:

      You dont need to perform any wipe in any nightly update but the safest thing is you need to wipe to secure your phone and not let you brick your phone.

  • Kresimir Zujic says:

    When turning BT on (with wifi on), WIFI disconnects and then reconnects.
    Here is catlog:

  • Emanuel Felipe says:

    I found a bug when I use the keyboard in landscape mode.The keyboard rotates but remains with format portrait mode. It just flips but not adapts.

  • Max says:

    I think battery drain after reboot with Wi-Fi isnt fully fixed yet. All else works well. Can you do 1080p recording? NovaThor u8500 is capable of it in ex. sony phones. If yes, donation guaranteed :P!

  • Jose says:

    I having problems with CM 10.1.3 the sound is lower! please ¿how to fix it?

  • Gio Mateo says:

    is there anyone can help me about this? 😀 i can`t do Group message. :3

    when i add another contacts. it become MMS already :3 can somebody help me? ty

  • Gokberk says:

    There is a program for 1080p video recording. You should try lgCamera, it is available on play store. Also there is volume+ app for better sound.

    s3 mini officially doesnt support otg but there is a trick. You need otg cable and male to male usb cable. Plug otg cable to the phone, after that, plug one end of male to male usb cable to otg cable’s usb, plug the other end to pc or charger. Wait for few seconds, pull only male to male usb cable and plug your usb devices to otg can even use your hard disk with this way. Also may be you need otg helper apps which you can find at play store. (For mounting)

    Except these, maclaw, you’re the best on s3 mini development. i’m grateful to you. i follow your ROMs and i am testing all. Please keep up the good work.

    There are few bugs. Firstly, newest youtube app doesnt work stable. Also mobile youtube website is same.

    When the phone at offline charging, i cant boot phone, i everytime see your offline charging animation. İ press the power button, phone close, after i see animation again.

    And there is a bug which is the most important for me, i cant change cpu frequency the way i want. For example, i am changing max frequency to 800mhz but when i set it to 800 on performance settings, cpu is still working on 1000mhz or working on governor’s own properties.

    Finally, i would like you to keep working on pac rom.

  • ipushpeople says:
