RELEASE for S3 Mini

New release (20140228) of CM11.0 for S3 Mini is available!

For flashing KitKat, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

  • Lude says:

    Hi Maclaw! Thanks for this awesome work. I’d like to help you to create a perfect rom so I would report the bugs I’ve found. If they are cm11 bugs not depending from you can anyone tell to me where can I report them directly to cm team? Thanks! 🙂

    – Last release broke battery life, now it’s just 4 hours with intense use, before 8h. I think this is resolved with this release but I remeber some awesome release with 16h (i’ve noticed that the CPU always work at 1 Ghz with every governor except powersave).

    – Sometimes I’ve problem with network (3G not working, SMS with very long delay) and need to reboot to make them work again.

    – Clock still freezing sometimes (Work without charger only if alarm is set to a short time) and app crash many times.

    – If it’s charging offline, don’t turn on with power button, if charging online, reboot instead of power off.

    – When I answer a call people can’t hear me for a sec or two. With livecall i need to put down the volume and then put up again to reach the max audio level.

    – When i charge offline and boot, battery it’s at 98% instead of 100% (already tried to recalibrate).

    – Can’t select autobrightness (only with app like cleanmaster or batterydoctor). I know S3 mini hasn’t light sensor but with these apps work with camera.

    – When brightness attenuate because of no use of the display, change with delays (not continuosly). Same problem when I change brightness.

    – Plugging charger online make a strange sound like a double beep and a scratchy long sound afer independently from the notification sound choosed.

    – Stability is very good but sometimes process crash (like google apps or settings when I reboot).

    FInally i’ve noticed the possibility to select NFC (still not working). NFC is coming or just an error? 🙂
    Sorry for my english. Thank you guys you’re great!

    Guys, the clock works with no freezing, all u have to do is sélect your timezone in the recovery. Otherwise, maclaw did the genius part and more with daily update, so plz Stop asking for standard things that u can Handle by a simple think

  • When I set the phone on vibration or silence (by pushing for some seconds the power button and selecting the option) I still receive sound notifications on whatsapp… the other apps goes on silence or vibration, but whatsapp is not responding. Any solution for that? Thanks.

  • soloyo says:

    Front camera not working And the sound notifications on whatsapp

  • No problems for me exept that it doesnt shut down when conected to charger. But i csn live with that

  • vetomacht says:

    I am so glad I bought a Nexus 5 because I no longer need to install your ROMs maclaw. I am thankful for your efforts but this ROM is just useless for day to day useage. Clock bug, power consumption, unexpected reboots are just a couple of bugs which made me buy a new phone. I know you are going to censor/delete my comment but that only shows your pathetic attitude towards your community and people that depend on your ROMs.

    So long….

    • HofiX-CZ says:


      If you dont like this ROM, buy another phone! Its OK, but please show just a little respect with people, who invest their free time to developing this ROM!

      If you were just a little intelligent and willing to do something, you could install 10.2 or help with developing..

      Haters gonna hate… It only shows how poor you are….

    • we dont flash ROMs just because we need to

      we want it and we love it

      and so you have a new phone so f**K OFF this thread we dont need you

    • DWil says:

      Even if I had a Nexus 5 I would root and flash rom.

  • Julian FP says:

    Hi guys, why i can not uninstall any of the apps that come with the cm11? i mean, i really want to uninstall google earth, google wallet, QuickOffice, Hangouts, google play books and too much stuff, i’ve already installed Clean Master but when i’m going to uninstall something it says “Uninstall failed”…i really need to know if with cm11 we as users are not allowed to modified this sort of things, thanks in advanced!

  • manolo says:

    Timely don’t work with this versión.

  • PCS says:

    Hi, a good number of my apps are failing to work with the new update. I am getting messages such as Google Play has stopped, BBC iPlayer has stopped etc. I do use Link2SD and have created links for any programme that I could, and they worked well under the last ROM. If I reinstall failed apps they begin to work again, but fail later and after a reboot!

    I have not performed a factory reset yet, but that will be my next move before going back to my previous ROM version.

  • DWil says:

    This I compatible with Samsung galaxy exhibit t599n correct?
