    Great 🙂 What about WiFi GHz bug? Everytime I install new ROM the bug is there. Sometimes also when rebooting. Disable WiFi, reboot, enable and all is working.
    Any ideas how to fix this?

  • ipushpeople says:

    I used nofrills to modify the cpu’s frequency
    android tuner also has that feature

    But I’m no expert so I don’t know if this is a good solution

  • TDS says:

    Btw, nice offline charging animation 🙂 Love teddy bears *fg

  • carlosseven says:

  • Officialananta says:

  • aavvaallooss says:

    Finally videos don´t freeze!!! Thank you so much!!! PS: WTF is OMX???

  • TDS says:

    Google it 🙂
    It’s for passing multimedia content from source via OMX to end media (screen, audio, etc.).

  • A guy says:

  • proth says:

    Nice 😀
    got some suggestions:
    1. qr-codes in download section, would be much easier to download the rom directly to my phone
    2. show battery in % while offline charging. (keep the panda!! :))

  • paulinho says:

    Yeah, thanks maclaw team

  • Patze says:

  • KaiKai says:

    Hi thx for this release !!!
    but i have one question ….
    must i first wipe dalvik & cache and install second this custom firmware
    or install first the firmware and second wipe dalvik & cache ??
    the reason for my question is that all apps i have installed are not deletet in this new firmware.
    But when i have install older firmwares all apps are deleted


  • geckoliz4rd says:

    Yup, I confirmed it. I hope this mystery will be revealed by Maclaw soon. 🙂

    TDS : “Great 🙂 What about WiFi GHz bug? Everytime I install new ROM the bug is there. Sometimes also when rebooting. Disable WiFi, reboot, enable and all is working.
    Any ideas how to fix this?” That’s the same for me ! How to fix it Maclaw ?

  • Marcos Gonzalez says:

    Maclaw i’m a huge fan of yours! Is it possible to add Sphere feature in the camera? Thank you for your amazing work!

  • TDS says:

    Try Titanium Backup with root access! Insert sd card and change backup location in settings. Do full backup of user applications (no system ones). Save contacts, SMS, etc. with MyPhoneExplorer.
    Wipe cache (a.s.o) and install this ROM. Reboot. Install MPE Client and Titanium Backup. Restore your apps and contacts, etc.

    Btw, if you have an CM ROM already installed (min v10) then you don’t have to wipe, simple install it over.

  • Nico says:

    Very big thanks for your work Maclaw!!!
    Suggestion for battery improvement : why not make an menu in Mms.apk with black or white backscreen? Because Amoled screen is more economic with black no?…
    (Sorry for my poor english)

  • @_eamm says:


    After the instalation of this release the UI start to crash.

    The videos apps (YT/Insta/Vine) work much better, but after a long long time the app stop working, like the usual.


  • Two reboots and it freezes in lockscreen, so I needed to remove battery after freeze. Sorry for my english. Hotplug CPU pattern.

    I ve changed to Interactive and no issues at the moment

  • FoReNeO says:

    i have the same problem only when i am using whatsapp

  • Oliver says:

    UI crash too much

  • Oliver says:

    where did you change that ?

  • Another crash. Here is a logcat of my device.

  • I did a clean installation ..
    The speakerphone does not work unfortunately, volume up and down should be!
    This case is unique to me?

    Before that I had with AOKP and had no problems!

  • Rafael says:

    I do not understand why so many problems with other testers, here is running smoothly.
    Sorry for bad English!

  • Harun says:

    Hi Maclaw, i couldn’t download new build, the link has problem, dowloading is stuck at 168,… MB. Help.

  • ipushpeople says:

    Try downloading using other browser or device

  • Marcos Gonzalez says:

    Got reboots some times, made a clean install 2 times. After every reboot i need to remove the battery because my phone get freezed. Any ideas?

  • Omar Ss says:

    I have a problem with the battery drain. It seem that a process named “copsdaemon” sometimes gets stuck and seems to be working even when i’m not using the device, i’d dare to say that the phone drains battery as if i was talking with someone. Maybe i hang up and the system doesn’t realize i ended the communication? Here’s a capture of problem, here the process copsdaemon used just a bit of battery because a made a battery charge and restart. Did this happen to anyone?

    • Radek says:

      Yep, this happened to me too, phone was stuck on wakelock and losts about 40% of battery. I’ve also discovered that copsdaemon process creates really big log file in /data/backup_cops.log (about 113MB in my case!), some rows looks interesting, mainly error in wakelock release:

      COPS[1708]: cops_main.c:243 cops_setup(): Starting up
      COPS[1708]: cops_wakelock.c:87 cops_wakelock_init(): Wakelock initiated
      COPS[1708]: cops_wakelock.c:54 cops_do_wakelock_release(): write() errno=22 (Invalid argument)
      COPS[1708]: cops_ipc_common.c:36 cops_ipc_context_create(): Got fd (6) for /dev/sec.
      COPS[1708]: cops_main.c:159 main(): Entering main loop

      the rest is filled with these 2 patterns:

      COPS[1708]: cops_ipc_common.c:141 cops_ipc_context_handle_signals(): Received SIPC from fd = 6. Type = 0x14, length = 40
      COPS[1708]: cops_router.c:170 cops_router_return_msg(): SIPC response sent to fd = 6. Type = 0x15, length = 110


      SIPC response sent to fd = 6. Type = 0x15, length = 110
      Received SIPC from fd = 6. Type = 0x14, length = 40


      • Lu Pa says:

        Here the same problem and without soultion. I’m sure that problem is caused for some geographical problem. It always die in the same place of the city.

  • Jogi says:

    Happend two times to me with different earlier versions of this rom. But couldn’t reproduce the bug. Problem was both times gone after reboot. Maybe a problem with the modem firmware or something like that. Didn’t change radio and it nearly always works:

    #STE: Creating Modem Security daemon
    service copsd /system/bin/copsdaemon
    class modem-core
    user root

  • EDGAR says:

    the rom is very good maclaw! but please fix the error because tarry long youtube videos

  • Eugen Stelea says:

    Nice work!
    I have a question though: there are 3 or 4 ROMS for S3 Mini. Can anyone tell me what are the differences between them?
    Thank you!

  • ipushpeople says:

    Cyanogenmod is the base forl the other custom roms, it has nice features and is easy to use
    AOKP is very very customizable, based on cyanogenmod, personally I feel overwhelmed by all the features
    PAC promises to have the best from cyanogenmod, AOKP, paranoid android (a rom not available here) and from other one I don’t remember, I have never tried it
    More info in the xda developers forums 😉

  • romek says:

    just install this rom. everything looks ok except one thing. when i turn off button highlights (settings/advanced) they are still flashing from time to time (randomly). this is a little annoying and probably drain battery. can this be fixed ?
