  • S3 Mini User says:

    Can anyone check your “Google Keyboard App” Data usage via WiFi.It’s downloading tremendous amount of data which leads to slow internet connection.

  • S3 Mini User says:

    Is offline charging fixed?Is it still returning back to offline charging even if I press the power button.
    Also even if the battery gets fully charged & tried to restart,the battery % decreases to 94~95 % .

    Hey 🙂
    I have just installed previous version but it works great – thanks for that!
    There is only one thing that irritates me the most. It is related to fact that with stock T-Mobile system (used in Play) I could send MMS message without caring to tuning on packet connection. Now I have to be remember to turn it off and on when I want to sent MMS. Previously it worked fine with stock system – is there any way to sort it out on my side without installing 3rd party messaging app?

    Besides you rock 🙂

    Hey guys what is the last usable ROM for s3mini released (no bugs?)

    The few last ones are working terrible with my phone, I get
    – unrolling notifications often makes everything go crazy, the bar goes up and down by itself and phone, when prompted to reboot doesn`t respond. Really annoying.
    – The quick settings are unreachable – the button doesn`t work and having selected “quick settings by swiping left side of status” – quick settings don`t open, just regular notifications bar.
    Also, movies are played with lags, even if they`re 480p.
    – GPS responds very slowly.
    and most importantly

    Overall phone`s quality dropped significantly since installing the “milestone” release from 10 days ago.

    What worries me is that when I got back to release from April`s 10th, the problems were the same. I even wiped my data, problems still occur!

    I know you do a lot of hard work guys, but have you considered releasing a ROM having it tested? It doesn`t have to be released every 1-3 days, you can release them once every 2-3 weeks, just make one that don`t interfere with phone`s basic features like receiving calls!

    As you can see, minor changes don`t do it for me so I`m going to hold until something good is out.

      +9999 with sounds and vibration of notifications, sms anr phone ringing

      • ens says:

        I wiped EVERYTHING (including data 🙁 ), installed cm and gapps and the phone works correctly again but man I`ll have to fuck with setting all the apps again since for an unknown reason titanium backup couldn`t restore them from backup files.

  • Stuck on SAMSUNG logo after flashing the update 🙁 . In recovery it says “No OS Installed”, please help ! Already wiped cache, system, data, and dalvik. Nothing work. I’m using the latest Maclaw’s TWRP Recovery. Thanks

    • Martin says:

      Did you do the wipe after or before the installation? I mean if you wipe system and data, the OS is gone as well. Try to put the ROM on the memory card and re-try the installation.

  • Bergfex says:

    ROM is working perfectly. I now got only 0.5% battery drain in stand-by! You Nova guys are great.

    But with the latest few releases a new issue showed up. With every reboot (after flashing as well as a regular one) some settings will be screwed up. Namely they are:

    1. Network preference always switches back to 3G

    2. Profile settings are srewed up. Some profiles are gone and some show up as duplicates. Settings within the profiles are changed. Every reboot will give a different profile scenario.

    Anybody else have the same issue? I do a cash and dalvik whipe with every new release.

    MIUI android 4.4.2, please

    Clock freeze !

    • Martin says:

      I can confirm it was present in earlier updates as well. Almost came late to work because of this 😀 It seems to be connested with sleep mode somehow as when the phone is unlocked, clock is refreshed correctly.

      • tiago says:

        it only happens once a week or so,I’v tried everything, disable CClock , set time in recorey, set time manually, nothing seems to solve it. I’m going to buy a cheep alarm clock tomorrow, then I don’t give a shit about clock freeze

        • ChitoS says:

          ————–IF CLOCK FREEZE————
          1.set time in recorey
          2.delete LockClock.apk
          3.Move DeskClock.apk” from system/app to system/priv-app
          (32 hours have passed,no clock freezes)

          • tiago says:

            Done that, had a full week with no clock freeze. Then froze. The actual clock doesnt freeze. Only freezes on the status bar and alarm doesnt go off. Ive uninstalled all clock apps. Still freezes.

    • haroldfinch2 says:

      if you want to avoid any freeze.. set timezone in recovery, set MANUAL time on Android… then download ClockSync and with mobile data always enabled you can set 1 day interval to sync with the atomic time every day… you can even choose minor interval but i don’t think that’s really useful 😉

  • Thomas says:

    I also recommend not to update every day if you dont see a problem!
    If you test the rom for some days and you have no problems then its the best to backup before changing to a new release. So you always have a working release to go back to!
