RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New release (20140630) 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).

  • txemafocus says:

    Con arte se actualiza mas lentas las aplicaciones y cada vez que ponemos la nueva actualización diaria por que?

    • Piero Ulloa says:

      Es ART, y tarda por que cuando actualizas, la dalvik-cache(ahora art, pero ya sabes) se llena con ejecutables en código máquina de las aplicaciones que usas, por tanto, se ejecutan mas rápido (Código máquina > Máquina Virtual Java)

    The menu and back buttons, perform poorly.

  • Sebastian says:

    After switching from stock ROM to Novafusion’s CM builds, the syncing of IMAP/Google account/Exchange does not work on my Galaxy S III mini (GT-I8190N).
    Background syncing is activated, for each account and in the general settings.
    All accounts setup, connect and authenticate, but later do not retrieve any data and manual syncing does not start either

    At the same time, all accounts sync just fine on a Galaxy S (GT-I9000) with official CM builds.

    I have wiped everything, multiple times (Dalvik / cache / system).

    Anybody any idea?

  • savi says:

    When I try to charge the phone locks off with the watch timeout. Repair this fault, I tried everything and only 4.4.3 works for me without charge problems

  • touch buttons won’t work, is there a solution?

  • Muhammad Essakjee says:


  • Fjodor says:

    If no syncing accounts are set up, the battery is great! Once I set up any kind of sync account (google for example) the battery is draining…

  • thomas says:

    Please, please….. before release something new….

    Get rid of the essential Bugs!!!!!!

    Clock-freeze, Alarm / Alert Bug…..

    (its really essential…. use Alarm for wake up!!! )

    Often I get no!!! Notification!!!! Not on Sms, not on Whatsapp, not on Telegram….:-(

    Nothing wether light, sound or anything visibel, Statusbar……. nothing…

    Its better to have a “good” Rom… and everything works…. Than to have 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 or something….

    Slow down…. and solve Problems first bevor go ahead…..:-)

    Sorry, for my bad englisch…..

    • d-k says:

      If you like stability – use the stock one…
      There are no new functionalities without risk of errors.

      Anyway – quite good release. The only issue: I’ve had one unexpected reboot (what was not happening for last 2-3 months).
      Regarding clock, 1ghz and other still repeating issues – I have no such problems.

    • Guest says:

      I’m not sure you understood how sofware versioning works.

      The base version is 4.4 and 4.4.x are only security fixes (released by Google). Nothing really new gets added, no change to main behavior, functions etc. It is just bugfixing.

      Major changes: 1.0 -> 2.0 -> 3.0 -> 4.0
      Minor changes: 4.0 -> 4.1 -> 4.2 -> 4.3 -> 4.4
      Minor bugfixes: 4.4 -> 4.4.1 -> 4.4.2 -> 4.4.3 -> 4.4.4
      (Major and minor changes of course also include bugfixes)

      Why am I telling you this? Because the issues you have would not go away or be any different, if Novafusion team would still base their updates on 4.4/4.4.1/4.4.2.
      As you know CM11 for S3mini is based on official CM11 nightly builds, so if official Nightly builds switch to 4.4.3, 4.4.4 or 4.4.5/5.0 (in the future), CM11 for S3mini will also switch to these versions.
