good to hear from u again!
Cm11 update please
Downloading & trying!!! Thanks!!!
Don’t see so much difference in performance feel and also AnTuTu score. But all is fine except for crash camera. No biggy… I copied the APK from 070714.
finally!!! Thanks a lot!
Wi-Fi direct doesn’t work. Please,fix it.
Need a critically work done on cm11 , battery drain solo quick !!
not to mention the sound recorder that IS NOT WORKING (I tested it….it works fine on stock…so it is the rom’s problem), the HUGE LACK OF PERFORMANCE, UNREPSONSIVENESS and the SystemUI/TestGuard that randomly crash and bring up the lockscreen
P.S……BATTERY IS DRAINING TOO FAST INDEED
(i am aware that i am gonna get swares and bad remarcks..maybe even delete mt comment…but it’s important that others know that this release needs ALOT OF IMPROVEMENTS)
Otherwise…it’s all fine
these apply to CyanogenMod 24072014
this features are implemented…. ¬¬
i don’t understand what you mean by “features”. Explain…
So… Use the Stock Rom dude!
Or help fix all these issues 😉
stock is rubbish in my opinion…so no thx 🙂
You will have bad performance and unresponsiveness and draining whilst having the 1 GHz bug.
In my case, one of the System processes is maxing out the CPU and a reboot with WiFi off helps.
Haven’t had this in 3 days though.
i don’t understand how there are a ton of bugs in this rom but under issues they always say none
Oh, great! Wifi Direct, Youtube HQ, No 1GHz bug, issues with WiFi are fixed, great performance boost… And Video Playing. Yeah, great. Twitch, Yelo TV, Sporza TV, Netflix, Plex, I’ll be back!
Did you checked it?
Wi-Fi direct work?
Installed, cleaned all caches, factory reset… boot up… FC on a whole load of essential apps making set up impossible.
I’ll try again, but any ideas what’s going on?
Install Gapps again and clean dalvik cache on TWRP
Clear the data of the app that FC
Don’t forget Slimkat plz *_* I really want to see this hard work in this amazing rom thanks novafusion
Someone has a problem when restarting the smartphone reduce 3% of the battery instantly?
Someone has a problem of some smartphone apps disappear without explanation? Are installed but are not accessible.
If you installed apps to the external sd upon reboot it takes a while for them to load, so it may seem as they’ve disappeared but after a few mins they all should return. Hope this helps you.
Downloaded and Testing! A thing to notice guys: In the Kernel Version: 3.0.101 -novafusion+ [email protected] #1 Wed Jul 23 15:21:26 CEST 2014. Question: When you asked us for doing the Spam to Samsung, it was after the 23rd… and on Friday 25 I got the confirmation email for the latest kernel. Shouldn’t the Kernel has to be more up to date? I mean the Date perhaps? Or should it says “Samsung” instead of “Novafusion”? Thanks in advance!!
no need a factory reset or clean all caches?
I updated my phone from 07/08 release to this one, dirty install. Everything seems to be ok. No 1ghz bug (after rebooting with wifi on). Testing battery life atm. Thanks a looot!!
Good to see you again! Waiting for CM11 update))
Cyanogenmod account force close after boot. i performed all wipes, any solution?
Thank you very much :))))))))))))
Camera dosnt work. 🙁
(I know that i can use Google camera)
Update cm 11 or PAC romr
Copy last release camera2.apk from-to /system/app/
[you will need SU access and it can say operation non completed but it will]
Just finished testing battery. I’m using a 2100 mah battery, it took half an hour of videogame usage to shutdown my phone from 100% to 0%. With 07/08 release I was able to play for 2 hours and ended up with 30%. Bottomline, this release drains battery like crazy. :c
Playstore gone and i download the playstore when i open it it force close what should i do plss anyone can help me ?
OK, I’m newbie and was commenting on older versions’ themes.
So, I was expecting patches or things like that but now I know I have to overinstall the OS.
Let’s try it!
good job. the best update since 4.4.4
Signal very weak connection sometimes goes offline alone!
Camera crash pls fix it
what to do lords maclaw stop making so many versions of rom and only engage in on specific and better until it is as stable as possible, should also put more customization options add a SClean I love and throw all the enthusiasm
hello.. my camera dosnt work? help plz
Still doesn’t charge with car adapter and clock freeze is still happening.
Other than that, everything seems to be working just fine. BT seems to be working better (didn’t work for me in previous build).
After a couple of days,:clock freeze is worst than ever for me, morning alarm clock never worked since this update. BT works fine but many times I get a FC when I enable it, I have to accept the FC popup and then enable BT a second time for it to work.
Hi, many thanks. I’ve managed to use f2fs but the data saving procedure didn’t work.
I’ve used the console mode of TWRP to tar the data partition onto an ext4 partition on my external sd card. Untarring later on failed with some strange code.
Furthermore I cannot use USSD codes anymore, e.g.
*#0*# for the test menu did work with the stock rom but not with Carbon 4.4.4.
Is there any method to fix this?
any one has OTG usb work?
Yes, it’s working just fine. Install stickmount from Google Play, invoke it to mount the stick. Then you can access it under /usbdisk0. Lateron you have to unmount it again.
Yes, it works! Install stickmount from Play. After mounting you can access it under /usbdisk0
Install stickmount (from Google Play). After mounting you can access it under /usbdisk0
Hello, great work, but what about OTG on this release? is working like CM?
Is there major difference by changing the kernel?
Hi i have just installed it. Standard camera dosn’t work, and i have problem with MMS, can’t find where apn settings are placed.
Camera dosent work :/
Please Radio !!!!!
I try spirit free, but let me whit no sound in calls after use ir….
Is it possible and has anybody tried to do so, to format the external sdcard with F2FS, as well?
Does not work, yet. Best you can do is using exFAT.
Wifi signal is still showing weak indicator & continually fluctuating in power up & down when compared to my HP laptop wifi signal in same location at home.. my HP laptop signal is normally double in power & more stable.. I tried some of the wifi signal booster applications but still weak.. & sometimes when on a skype video call the wifi signal will disconnect.. any suggestions, appreciate it..
note: I have 2 units of S3 mini for me & my wife with same weak wifi signal..
Same problem here, weak WiFi reception… Any solutions, please? Really like this ROM, don’t wanna go back to a Rom Stock.
Hi abdulla, I know this is a bit late to comment on but HP/Laptops have a much stronger WiFi card and would always get twice what a mobile phone in this case an s3mini can get. In my opinion get a stronger router or a better phone. This is not novafusions fault. I have been getting good wifi with this same build. And PS WiFi boosters don’t work they just disconnect your phone and reconnect it hoping it will boost the network only works for network by connecting you to the strongest tower but all in all boosters are useless
Camera doesn’t work again.
screen record still crash my phone, big issue whit wi-fi conecction, can`t unmount sd
hope a new release son to fix it.
btw thx for the rom, keep working on it, its great work
On my S3 and latest carbon 4.4.4 camera crash when called
Please fix the camera doesn’t work
Try the newest update, 20140811.
CAMERA not working, cant sign into google account
