        Hi Piero. Due to too many F*CK Offs received I had to drop the +1. I I used a . then more of that. But I have to have someway of following the thread in order to keep informed about “monkeys on the beach” or Bugs as they are called. Or just stay out of some updates if I see many people crying over their messes.

  • Yoniverh says:

  • Daniel says:

    Not charging with vehicular charger (the music player opens, like the charger would be a headphone).
    In 10.2 version and Carbon Rom also happens…
    Really sad πŸ™

    • Dekkerm says:

      In my car charger it works fine. It probably is your charger that isn’t compatible. Really sad.

    • erki says:

      Charging issue can be remedied by buying charging only cable from ebay. It means data data wires are shorted on phone side which tells phone to charge with full power. I also tried with diferent charges until discovered this cable trick.

  • Petri says:

  • Hero says:

    One and THE ONLY problem is the clock freeze when I set the alarm. Any solution ?

  • The layout of the buttons on the dialing screen is bad after installing updates from the recovery.
    The battery lasts a very short.
    The device loses signal frequently and need to restart to reconnect to the network.
    Please enable some option to increase the resolution of contact pictures.
    The “Search phone” option is disabled after installing updates from the recovery… how do I enable it again?
    Please enable any option to lock the desktop icons to not move or delete icons accidentally.
    Some Apps (Like GO Backup & Restore) not recognize the external memory card.

  • IgSoN says:

    This release is better than previous one. No problems with waking the phone up. As for now no problems with clock or loosing singal. BIG + for your work

  • erki says:

    I seem to have gps/bluetooth issue: using endomondo for running it starts to report km-s wrong, phone thinks km is about 1300m. And after some time, maybe 1/2h it drops gps altogether at the same time bluetooth stops working. Is it just me or has anybody seen similar issues?

  • DerArndt says:

    I lose some widgets after update and can not choose them , only buggs you brings us the last time whats wrong make it stable !!!!!! i love cm , but you kill it from update to update .

    • DerArndt says:

      and all roms from this site i tested , they are buggy :/ not one of them can use 4 daily

      • Dekkerm says:

        Actually it works fine on my S3 mini. Like on most of our devices this ROM is very much useable as a daily driver. Of course there are a few small bugs but none that are a problem.

        I suspect that those who have major problems have a confict of software. You should try installing the ROM from scratch (clean after wiping everything) and then see if you have bugs before installing any software. If everything works install softeware one at a time to see where things go wrong. Take time between installs to do proper testing.

        Remember that the ROM is a nightly so bugs are guaranteed. I find, again, that the bugs are few and minor.

      • Aupatter says:

        Not in my case. Everything works fine for me. DonΒ΄t do general complains.

      • Yoniverh says:

        CM11 and 10.2 are good daily drivers

  • Yoniverh says:

    PAC please!! πŸ™

  • Tad says:

    I think there might be a problem with GPS fix. I was testing GPS signal with GPS status and it’s 250 sec and still nothing. I tried to restart my phone but GPS status still shows 0/0 satelites.
    Does anyone have the same problem?

  • zap2675 says:

    Bad battery drainage in this version. Not so on the previous one. i completely charged it at 7:00 AM and after 3 hours of very little use (basically) syncing emails, both through 3G and then WiFi (after switching off 3G) and I’m already below 50%. Does this have anything to do with the so called 1Ghz bug?

    Any other stuff is working great. Tremendous work M&M!! Thanks a lot!
