    What’s the best governor and scheduler for S3 Mini? Is PegasusQ not better only for the big brother S3?

    Hi Maclaw! Thank you for the update. I searched on google “abyssplug governor” but the only thing a I discovered is that “abyssplug” is “hotplug modified”… What are the main differences between these two governors? and which one do you suggest? Thank you 🙂

  • Heiko says:

    I have a big problem with my S3 mini.
    I’ve downloaded the new Version CM10.2 and the new gapps from your Download site.
    Then i’ve installed this stuff. This prozess works fine.
    After this prozess was finished, i reboot my phone.
    The reboot starts, but i see only the two blue rotating circles for any time.
    a reboot and a replace of the battery does not help.

    Bevore i installed the CM10.2, i have rooted my phone (with GALAXY S3 MINI TOOLKIT V1.1)

    What is wrong?
