New release (20140630) of SlimROM 4.4.2 for S3 Mini is available!

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

  • Maris says:

    Great ROM, fast and smooth, but I am having random black screen issues, and phone not responding when using Google Now Launcher. Seems OK with standard ‘Laucher’

    • Maris says:

      Correction: crashing was not due to SlimROM / Google Now Launcher, but an app that wouldn’t update correctly.

      It’s now running smoothly.

      This ROM is staying on my S3 Mini!

  • Arturo PΓ©rez Avila says:

    One question about format…

    I want to make a full wipe of my phone, to fully experience this rom, but I have many questions..

    First, about the advance wipe section in TWRP, could someone explain all the options displayed here? I mean, I understand dalvik (programs customization), cache, but i’m kind of lost with system and data.

    I read your tutorial about f2fs, it seems deletes and make you choose your file system…

    System, dunno. Internal storage I suppose it just delete the info in the sdcard folder.

    Other thing, if data format all the phone, its vital to backup the efs folder? Do you recomend to do this?

    Thanks in advance, I’ll wait to try this release.

  • Bambuti2000 says:

    Special thanks from Germany.
    Two unimportant things after installing on my phone:
    1. The Softphone-Icon (on the left-bottom) is Randy and no phone handset. By clicking I get the message “App not installed”. After deleting and use the right one from the app-overview everything Looks fine.
    2. The Mail-Client doesn’t work.The client comes up and close in the next second.For me it’s not important, because the client in the original ROM is buggy too. But I think it’s an Information to check.

    Regardless, all together it’s a successfull created ROM I’ll never miss.

    PS: Sorry for my bad english…

  • hello i have a problem while i m installing slimrom..i get a message when the phone open after install. ” cyanogenmod account has stoped ” and the phone just dont open..any idea how to fix it pls?

    Thank you for this release! Encryption works the best in this one as well, but the annoying Dropbox date bug is present… I guess it is on every KitKat ROM? Should I try Jellybean?
