    We should spam them now with a “Thank You” E-Mail 😀
    So next time they update their kernel without spamming 😀

  • ruuu7 says:

    Nice! That’s great news!

  • Ozzy says:

    think a lot of us received the same but lets wait before say thanks 😉

  • mahmoud20070 says:

    no not yet because you know guys they are too lazy when release any new thing like new android version so we wanna do that very quickly

    and congratulations

  • Hayden says:

    Awesome nice one everyone And big thanks to Novafusion 🙂

  • Egg says:

    got the same e-mail..when I saw it i was thrilled…..at long last they’ll update :)))))))

  • d-k says:

    Good news but I’m far from being so enthusiastic. “We are now planning” means …nothing special when there is no date specified.

    On the other hand: I see the screeenshot from gay-pad. Maybe you know how to adapt android on it? Then it would be an useful thing for me (instead of being only a toy for my children) 🙂

  • m4rtin says:

    Thank you for the great initiative, M & M!

  • Binu Abraham says:

    Awesome …. Great news .. Really proud of our great community… Thank to Samsung considering our request . We have a great leaders Mr. M&M.

  • Devashish Pandey says:

    Will this kernel be helpful for S Advance as well or we have to start another spamming campaign for S-Advance? 😛

  • Thomas says:

    Marcin can you tell us some more about what you are planning to change in the kernel?

  • SteveAC says:

    I got the same email!!! When I saw it this morning I couldn’t believe that I’d rceive a reply. I do hope they release it soon, because the S3 i8190 even though an old piece of hw, it’s still a GREAT piece of hw. Novafusion you’re the reason why I have NOT spend $ to buy another phone!!! 😀 😀 (I’ll donate in the end of the month when I get paid 🙂

  • Panos Skoulaxinos says:

    Hello NovaFusion Developers,

  • Egg says:

    We are all happy for our little victory, but then it rises a question – When they’ll release the update ?!

  • Raude says:

  • adli says:

  • David says:

    Lol… my oneplus one just arrived yesterday. No more buggy samsung sh*t!!!!
    i wish all of you s3 mini owners a lot of fun with your devices and macs roms. what would i have done without you maclaw?

  • Coshyloco says:

    Entonses la siguiente room la sacarán hasta que samsung libere el odio del kernel o sacarán más room antes de eso?

    • Felipe Raposo says:

      Seguro sacaran más ROMs antes de eso. El problema es que seguramente Samsung tardará un montón hasta que libere el código.
      Y todavía no entendí que versión de Kernel será.

  • darkfox says:

    ill continue spaming till you get the actual kernel in your hands xD °,.,° ahhh maclaw so if we get the kernel are we going to se an kitkat AOSP and the normal CM releases without bugs or maybe a final release of it? and the new kernel (i know that isnt release yet but….) will it be compatible with android L?

  • Donarsson says:

  • Ashus says:

    As mentioned above, does the kernel help with NFC? We’d like it even if the driver would be closed source as opposed to everything else.. please?
