Fixed 1GHz bug?
+1, I don’t know what do with my phone. Randoms reboots and battery drain.
I don’t remember what was the last version of CM which works OK to downgrade to it 🙁
10.2 works really well for me 🙂 i just wish there was maybe some more updates for f2fs but its great
i like 10.2 but i have installed the latest Release of CM and i had Troubles with Youtube.. it doesn’t play any video
707 works good for me.
So, maybe your battery is damaged. Check it, if battery have like air bubbles, then battery is damaged. The battery should be fully flat.
707 Funciono bien para mi.
talvez, la bateria este dañada. Revisa, si la bateria esta abombada, entonces esta tañada. La bateria debe estar totalmente plana.
I was going to say the same. Even though the phone showed over 50% battery full it randomly rebooted.
Turns out the battery was bad (bubbles!!), discharged very quickly and the batt indicator was not updating correctly.
New battery and everything went back to normal.
Iba a escribir lo mismo. Se me reiniciaba solo el telefono a pesar de que indicaba más del 50% de carga resulta que en realidad estaba agotada y el indicador decìa cualquier cosa.
Compre una nueva y se solucionó.
Try this stable kitkat rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2692121
Do you use this? I glanced at the forums and it doesn’t seem actively supported, and with bluetooth issues.
yes I use it (nightly version not stable) and hadn’t any battery issue or crash but bluetooth dosn’t work.
How nice of you to post links to ROM of different makers on the NovaFusion Carbon 4.4.4 forum.
Call this a “nuclear mistake” 😉
Cm10.1 and cm10.2 update please
TWITCH app working?
Try vortex app in play store and tell me if it works
it doesnt work any livestream app doesnt work maybe its the rom problem sadly
it is a rom problem cause i went back to stock rom and i can watch livestreams all day
Camera still crashes. And no video recording even with other camera apps.
Althoug, great great work. Thanks a lot!
I get a black square over some of the top bar icon covering the wifi and network signal icons.
i don’t have this. maybe do a clean install? running pretty good so far for me, no bugs/glitches found so far.
Black squares disappeared as mysteriously as they appeared. Everything working fine now 😀
No issues so far!
Working Camera, working video recording… responsive… and all this with a dirty upgrade from 0707.
I think you did a good job guys!!
Perhaps you could include the ZenX governor and Zen scheduler?
ZenX turns off the second core in idle. Possibly another battery saver 🙂
dirty upgrade from 0707 too, and same results. Nice job Novafusion Team.
Hello, when I try ti install carbon4.4, it says:
E:failed to verify whole-file signature
What should I do to install KitKat on my s3 mini? plz help!
what is the best governor ?
Elaine Marley, no doubt.
Hi, im using the older version of Carbon 4.4.4 , great great work boys!!! I am going to update with the new verison. i can not use Radio FM, could you help me to find something?
Have a nice day!
I cant find youtube and google play store?
well, my cellphone didn’t recognize the lock button, so i turned it off, now i can’t turn it on, the mobile doesn’t recognize the start up button.
Haha.. Nice one! 🙂
Look behind you, a three-headed monkey! :-*
You fight like a dairy farmer.
I still have the bug at 1Ghz, which is the best regulator for S3 Mini? Google translator
Unfortunatly google playstore has stopped when i update app
when some google apps disappear, only run google aroma apps without check anything. It has solved issue for me.
there have not fixed that bug when the battery charges off the device does not mark the percentage and not turn the battery must be removed to turn again.
Running on this ROM – did a full backup using “Easy backup” on my stock ROM – then installed CarbonROM from 7/7 and now this one. Everything seems to work well, except the call log/history. It is not updated, perhaps because I restored the Full call-log from Easy Backup. Does CarbonROM not overwrite the older entries with the new ones? It sucks a little bit not to have the call history.
I highly appreciate the team’s work with this ROM!
why i cant see the anything when im calling??? it shows black screen.. :3 how can this be fixed??? thanks..
can use gear 2 neo with this rom?
