RELEASE for S3 Mini
Carbon 4.4.2

New release (20140320) of Carbon 4.4.2 for S3 Mini is available!

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

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free 😉

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

If you’re updating from older CM10.1/10.2/11.0 version or migrating from Oliver’s CM, you don’t have to perform a wipe!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

    Hi Maclaw, not sure what’s happened, but your last few releases have bugged out after asking for sim unlock pin. The phone unlock screen won’t register screen presses and I keep reverting to 20140313 which was the last one that worked. I’ve wiped cache/dalvik cache every time. Such a shame. If I can help in any way to bug fix let me know.

  • Coke says:

    The update yesterday, the clock is still freezing, proving this.
    The camera seems to be fine now.

    (Google translator jaja)

    • Hellge says:

      same bug…. went back to 16.03.14

    • Simao says:

      No problems with unlocking
      If you forget the pass of lockscreen you can restore it with your gmail account, tap on “Forgotten Password?” (or similar) and type in your gmail-address without and your password of your gmail account.

      Now its solved
