novafusion thanks !!! testing !!
WOOOOOOOOOW, Android L! 😀
What are you saying? Android L? Where? What? When? Who?
Android l’ye hazırlık diyor. Gelmiş değil henüz 🙂
Just a couple of months to go, CyanogenMod hasn’t even released a L version yet http://www.cyanogenmod.org/blog/the-l-is-for-later
Also looking forward for that… ;D
This is a dream … right ?
No. It’s true.
Gonna try this 😀
Can someone tell me if WhatsApp videos is fixed?
Ok it works haha I just checked it
not working for me… crashes every time i try to send a video.
@Παύλος: Did you update yours at the latest release? Mine is working without issues. Maybe it’s time for a fresh install of the latest release
Hey guys, I have a strange problem here. After switching on CM 11.0 again from AOSPA, I’m getting a strange bug everytime i turn on my phone. After booting on, on the PIN-insert screen my phone writes “Unfortunately, Themes provider has stopped” and it wont just go away. Any ideas? (Only CM 11.0 is doing this to me).
Sorted it out, somehow phone kept the old Theme provider from another ROM… Even after Factory Reset. Anyway, I managed to disable it in Settings and everything works as before 🙂
how do you done that… am stuck wit it 🙁
Establish official firmware. Then do this, set CM11.
ANDOIRD L OMG!!!!
this update still does not work for the L version?
no clock freeze WOW!!, Installing now!
Really android l, what date?
which is better AOSP or CM 11
Thanks a lot
Will Android L on samsung galaxy ace 2???
Its comming first on s3 mini
‘…preparing to Android L’ sounds great!
Thanks, Nova team. Well done.
Android L 🙂
When its comming?
Is there a 1 GHz bug and clock freeze,battery draining????
Hi team …. in this moment we only need sure 1Ghz Bug, really clock freeze and battery drain.
In a next step you can aplly Android L.
Use it with 1Ghz, it’s smoother 😀 Freeze is fixed, maybe you should do a clean install. F these, L is coming 😀
Fix for 1 GHz bug is boot the device with Wi-Fi off. Simply turn Wi-Fi off and reboot the phone.
Thank you very much! Please fix SIM toolkit and car charging before so we can have fully working CyanogenMod 11. Best team ever
I have never had a car charging issue and have no SIM toolkit issue in this release. Try clean installation for solving your problems.
Mmm even after clean installation car charging start sound app and don’t charge. Sim toolklit never seen in NovaFusion releases even clean installed. In other unofficial cm11 devices it works.
I don’t think car charging is a bug in the ROM. I had the same problem, but tried diferent USB cables until I found one that worked fine in the car
Sim Toolkit works fine for me in this release. Too many other bugs though. If this build is now abandoned in favor of the essentially non-funcional Lollipop I’ll just go back to rooted stock.
I try and see there is a 1 Ghz bug,so back the previous version(26.10.2014) AND STILL 1GHZ BUG,please help me if it is from my vault.if isn’t,please fix it
Edit: 1GHz problem is solved.(on previous relase, 26.10.2014)
I still have in on this current release.
which one is fluider and has got better autonomy this release or rom stock? thnx
Android Lollipop !! Getting exiciting
Do you think our device can work easily 5.0 ?
The Android L is placed on the CM 11 , or does everything come again? and the continued bugs in Android L ?
Does this rom support device encryption? When I try to encrypt my device, the green robot will come up, but nothing else will happen.
What is 1ghz bug?
I had no 1Ghz bug, no battery draining and no freeze clock until now.
Google announced the Android 5.0 Lollipop a couple of days back and we’re already hearing news from various Android manufacturer partners for their Android 5.0 Lollipop update schedule. Major companies like HTC and Motorola announced their update plans right after a few hours of Google’s announcement, while Sony took a day to announce its update plans.
However, Samsung hasn’t said a single word yet on their Android 5.0 update schedule. Usually, Samsung updates its flagship devices to newer Android version between 90-120 days but we’re yet hear Samsung’s plan for the Lollipop update.
It generally takes 60-90 days for manufacturers to push update for the latest Android version after Google announces it. But that’s only the case for flagship devices, for non-flagship ones, companies take well over 90 days and sometimes don’t even update the other devices.
However, according to Google Android 5.0 update can run well on devices with 1GB RAM and dual-core or a quad-core processor. And almost all mid-end to high-end devices sold in 2013 and 2014 have this configuration so unless your manufacturer sucks, you can expect the Lollipop update for your Android devices released in 2013 or 2014.
If you’ve a Android device released before 2013, then even after being compatible (hardware-wise), your device may not get the Android 5.0 update officially. Because generally devices are only enrolled for Android updates for upto 18 months since release. But thanks to the massive community of independent developers on Android, you’ll most probably get the Android 5.0 update for your old Android device by the means custom ROMs based on AOSP. Popular examples of such custom ROMs are CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, OmniROM, etc.
You forgot to copy&paste the rest of the original article, including all those beautiful and lengthy tables.
There is always a jerk and today is you. I put copy and paste the MOST Relevant
In my book, “jerk” definition encompasses “someone who grabs someone else’s work and do not give due credit”, case you didn’t grasp (or pretend not having grasped) the essence of my comment — and this is “jerkiness” too.
I wanted to make a contribution but you’re a stupid that has nothing you do, just disturbing
and you that you laugh? You’re also a stupid?
can i join hahahaha haaaaaaaaa
el único estúpido que hay aquí eres tu……ten respeto y si no te gustan los comentarios que te hagan no pongas nada…….
Andete a le re-puta-madre que te pario Txemafocus, quien te dijo algo a ti pedazo de una mierda, no eres mas que un aborto mal hecho, pedazo de mierda. Quise aportar algo de informacion, no era para que un estupido se riera pensandose mas inteligente por que se dio cuenta de que copie y pegue el texto, eso es mas que ovbio, ni pense que alguien pensaria lo contrario y no necesito dar creditos a nadie por ese texto ya que es solo informacion publica, manga de mamones estupidos
Hahaha, calm down guys! 😀
gracias por demostrarnos quien eres en realidad y el respeto que tienes a las criticas sean buenas o malas.
jaja pero querido txemafocus… Me agradeces por demostrar quien soy? jaja que pajero importante. Y quien soy? Yo te digo quien soy… Soy un boludo mas igual que vos que no tiene mejor cosa que hacer que jugar con su smartphone cambiandole de rom, quejandose de que no le andan los videos o se le descarga rapido la bateria con la nueva compilacion, etc etc.. Osea una manga de pajeros importantes, jaja y si te molesta el que yo no tenga intermedios y en vez de ser irónico, conteste con todas las palabras para defenderme de que un estupido juegue a hacerse el inteligente y el astuto, burlandose con ironia de mi buena intencion de compartir algo informacion, si eso te molesta… Entonces el equivocado aquí eres tu… Jusgan por la manera de defender e ignoran al que ataca, solo por ser discreto en su insulto pero no menos hiriente.
lo que tu digas……pero creo que no es correcto faltar y llamar estupido a nadie por que diga que as echo un copi pega solo digo que hay que ser respetuoso y tu no lo eres, saludos pendejo.
So you insist you are a victim, just because you suffered from some irony blindness.
For what is worth, I’m not claiming to be better than anyone, as your ill-mannered wording try to depict. But you may rest assured I’m well above average when it comes to intellectual property concerns. Maybe because I’m a gray haired journalist, maybe because I’ve had a 30+ years career in the IT scene, maybe both.
Being so, I consider stealing (yes, this is the right word here) intellectual property to be most despicable. All in all, up till now I’ve made my living with software writing, journalism writing and imagery handling – it’s easy to see why I stress that stealing intellectual property is wrong. In some countries Law sees it the same way.
Although you argue that “no necesito dar creditos a nadie por ese texto ya que es solo informacion publica”, some people may dispute that, mainly Shivam, the original intellectual owner of the work he posted at TheAndroidSoul. Just go to the bottom of that page (http://www.theandroidsoul.com/android-5-0-lollipop-update-schedule-samsung-htc-sony-motorola-manufacturers/) and read the caveat again:
“NOTE: You are NOT allowed to copy/paste the contents of this page. You can only link to this page to share any information available here.”
Irony is that initially I thought you had written the article, so I did some googling to find where you were posting your texts.
The bottom line is: always cite the author of an original work, otherwise people may think you are the author. That simple.
Have a nice life.
Ok viejo (tu me dijiste pendejo)… es cierto, se me fue la mano con los insultos pero solo fueron para pasar el rato, jaja En realidad me enoje mucho, no tanto por el “estúpido” que quiso desmerecer mi buena intención de compartir algo de información, mas me enoje por los bobos que defendieron su actitud. Ni el mas feo de mis insultos puede ser peor que la mala leche de un estúpido que se cree mejor que los demás y usa la ironía para hacer creer que es mas inteligente. Copie y pegue lo mas relevante y era obvio que copie y pegue, no necesitaba que un estúpido me tratara como si yo fuese un estúpido farsante que se adjudica material de otros. chau viejo txemafocus, córtate el pelo que ya estas grande, jaja (chiste)
OK SALUDOS NCO
Saludos txemafocus y te pido mil disculpas solo a ti si te ofendi, fueron desmedidas mis palabras. Incisto en que fue RGoldBR el que ofendió, solo que nadie lo noto solo porque yo me defendí de forma agresiva. Aunque debo reconocer que mi ingles es muy básico y a veces recurro a google traductor, no seria la primera vez que traduce cualquier cosa y me mete en lios.
always state where you copied the text and always give credit to author
You copypasted an outdated article lmao
So far have not had clock freeze or 1 ghz bug! Thanks a lot novafusion!!
Witch relase has the best battery ?
For me it’s the 20141014 release. I’ve always had battery drain issues with Nova roms until that one.
For me its 20140520 😉
I hope Android L finally include the autobrightness function.
It won´t be possible for our device because s3 mini has no light sensor. Sorry
and water resistant
and make money free 😉
dude, our s3 mini dont have that sensor.. but you can use some app.. like lux autobrightness… use the front camera like sensor, and do not affect the batery
There is no auto-brightness to be added for s3 mini, since the phone doesn’t (physicly) have a light sensor….so no auto-brightness
Unfortunatelly, S3 Mini hardware doesn’t include an ambient light sensor. The only workaround is for an app to poll the light level captured by the camera lenses and ramp the screen brightness up or down accordingly. Lux Lite (just search for it at the store) does exactly this. I’ve tested it once, and it does quite a decent job.
We don’t have light sensor so we won’t gonna have auto brightness on our device.
Hi there, I have strange bug in the previous release – low call volume, and long time after slide green button to hear voice on the other side.I heard something about this on the XDA developers and tried some fixes, but still the same…
– is it solved in this release?
This was a previous issue, have you tried volume down, them volume up when on a call? This fixed it before.
Mi tecla de regresar no funciona cuando estoy en el menú principal de apps, please fixe it
Can’t wait for the freeze fix on Carbon! Great effort Nova and Nova helpers!
The battery continues discharging very fast, but congratulations to the team for the initiative. I await the next updates with improvements and maybe a lollipop Android 5.0 version.
Battery is discharging very fast but nwm
Jump to android L,we cant wait 🙂
There’s a bug with OTG where I will plug an OTG cable and the phone goes into charging mode (Battery icon changes to charging icon) and will stay that way until I reboot. The OTG function itself works like a charm.
It’s a normal behavior of our device to OTG. It’s because our phone’s hardware doesn’t really support it. It’s something they forced to work here. But it’s good, isn’t it?
[…] It may not have official support but Novafusion enabled USB OTG on the S3 Mini in Cyanogenmod. http://novafusion.pl/2014/11/01/rele…0-s3-mini-261/ […]
mine always restarting itself, and now stuck in bootloader without displaying cm boot
Wich rom is fluider and has better autonomy CM 11 20141101 or rom Stock?
thanks for answer
A question: an upgrate to Android L involves an upgrate of the kernel?
Again, thanks a lot for keep us on the top Team!
ETA for L?im really excited because i know the ART will be more complete
But GUI and handling will be even worse.
Touchscreens are the most horrible shit, that technolgy brought us.
i know but touchscreens were actually a good idea for phones because of how small the screen is and for scrolling
Why cant i open Google play after latest cyanogenmod update (november 1)
have you installed GAPPS? check in downloads section
installed the rom last night. im not able to charge my phone. when i plug the charging adapter into usb socket. the sound player starts instead of charging? any help on this ?
I can´t get Wifi hotspot working.
Phone just freezes.
Anyone got the same problem.
i dont get the phone freeze with tethering but internet connection not possible.
after changing to WPA and then back to WPA2 its working now!
I just installed cyanmogenmod 20141101 and i don’t have google play store. How do i instal it?
i had same problem, installed gapps (google apps) again via recovery. then it worked
Install the google apps.
Same here. Great work.
BUT: battery is discharching altough plugged in? That is really annoying.
minha lista de contatos do cartão SIM não aparece… alguem sabe resolver isso.
Pesquise como transferir contatos do cartão SIM para conta Google. Assim seus contatos aparecerão no aparelho. Depois é só ir em AGENDA (pessoas) > CONTATOS PARA EXIBIÇÃO > marcar GOOGLE. Ok?
I usualy use 2G mode and mobile data active obliuvsly in edge modality.
There is a problem when I reboot system, because every time also I have 2G mode active, the mobile data switch in HSPA.
I confirm a problem with SIM, my operator or provider is Vodafone – omnitel from Italy.
I can’t see the conctat in sim with the default sim toolkit.
I hope you can resolve the issue with auto brightness in future.
Autobrightness won’t be fixed because we don’t have light sensor.
OK, i’m sorry, I didn’t known about light sensor… but the mobile data that switch from edge to hspa every systems reboot is a issue that could be solved. 🙂 I think is a software’s issue.
And also the hot spot… that when active freeze the phone and i had to reboot every time.
Also the problem that make impossible to reboot when to phone is in recharge…
however the guys of nova fusion team make a wonderful job everyday, WE HAVE ONLY TO APPRECIATE THEIR WORKs AND HELP.
The bugs are happening when the phone is connected to power or usb cable computer.
1 – When the phone is connected it does not shut down, it restarts.
2 – When the phone is off, he does not care.
3 – When the phone is connected to power, to receive notifications of buttons turn lights off and no lights.
I have nothing to complain about, it’s probably the best release since ever. Good performance and battery life, all bugs that shouldn’t be here are fixed (at least on my device), and it’s all stable. Thanks a lot guys!
and what device would that be specifically?
I think still have a problem with the clock… when the alarm is turned on the batery drops to 0 in less 6 hours!
Someting is not right
Not for me.. Only 2% for 8 hours
And for me it’s 0% for 6 hours
@shaumaa, @mamiho, which governor and i/o scheduler are you guys using? thx
gov: interactive, i/o: cfg
The best release so far. Congratulations NovaFusion!
I can’t charge offline, when I connect charger it freezes in the first animation and I have to remove battery to to turn it on. Help please! It’s a clean installation from stock with all wipes done
Sound recorder gives error when trying to write in “wav” format
Hi NovaFusion. First give you congratulations for this good project.
I have a problem with the new releases, the boot_logo (s3-mini logo) has missing and, in the boot, the device don’t show any boot_logo before the Cyanogenmod logo.
Just flash the bootlogo, is in the download section of this page and restart the phone! If it not show, flash again! I had the same problem one time and i solved by that way! Sorry, my english is not very good…
Hi, please anyone can tell me which is the best rom for s3 mini? I tried carbon months ago, but I had battery drain issues. I would like to know which is the most stable rom, which have the best performance, battery life, etc etc, and also that don’t reset constantly (specially when battery’s phone is under 5% haha).
Thanks for your answers.
The last releases have great performance, making a clean install, the battery it’s like the Stock rom, maybe a little bit better with moderate use.
I used the last CM Rom!
Hey bro, how did you installed the rom? I choose all options where appeared f2fs, that’s bad? Also I can’t install gapps 🙁
I’m having huge battery problems: after reboot or power-up (after shutdown) my battery drop 10-20% down. When I reboot or power-up with my phone in the charger, it jumps the same amout up. Also, I frequently come in bootloop, only resort is to pull the battery and restart the phone.
Any of you have the same issue? On a previous release the phone is fine.
same think but in all realse on cm 11
I had the same problem until I changed the battery.
can’t wait for the release!!
nfc does not work , the system does not see it 🙁
That’s because there isn’t any software for NFC here. Why? Because Samsung did not shared it. So it’s not NovaFusion/CyanogenMod team fault.
is any way for enable that
Hey novafusion, The Android L Source Code for Nexus 5 has been released at Android git developers. Hope that helps, and you guys release Android L for S3 Mini at the end of The week. Btw, great work!!!
Will I be able to install this release of CM11 and the update to android L without wiping the phone again? Thanks!
Podré instalar esta rom en el teléfono y luego actualizarla a android L sin hacer el wipe otra vez? gracias!
Yep, it should be possible. But Cyanogenmod team won’t make CM12 (lolipop) for some time still, because what is shared by google isn’t the final or stable release. They will wait for some time because of that.
Is this rom the most stable/best of all CM11?
For me it is. But the only way to check is to simply check it by yourself. There is many people which aren’t that happy as me, as for them it isn’t stable.
Are the RIL and mobile data working good ?
I can’t install gapps!! somebody help me please 🙁 I tried many gapps (stock, micro,etc) I’m scared
whats your error? post some more data!
Anyone else seen this? I got a GT-I8190N but when I installed cyanogenmod 11 earlier this year it switched the model to GT-I8190.
Also, my device never seems to find any updates, I manually flash the newer versions manually…
Battery life is just AWESOME compared to the other releases! Good job nova team!
offline charging doesn’t work !!
pls help 🙁
When I try to install the gapps, it says I have no enough space available but I have
Can someone help me ?
using for a Week .
Battery is Perfect.
No more bugs.
Are you a sorcerer?
Yes I am
I can’t get 2g/3g to work at all. (I recently tried out another ROM, then switched back, and since then it has not worked). Can anyone tell me what went wrong and how to fix it?
Check You are APN settings .
for me 2g and 3g working perfectly.
Is there any place where I can post some complains etc? I guess I’ll post them here. If I have to post them somewhere else, please redirect me.
1. When I restart my phone, some apps disappear from my home screen and then I have to put them back on it, it’s pretty annoying.
2. When I have charged my battery the screen freezes (on a “loading screen)”, I can’t restart my phone or anything, so I have to remove the battery and put it back in.
3. When changing the brightness, it’s standard on “AUTO” (the icon is a sun). You can click on “AUTO” and then the icon of the sun changes to a sun with an A inside for a millisecond. I don’t know if this is supposed to be like that, but I thought it could be a bug.
If I find more bugs/things that can be improved, I will post them here (or on a q&a section of the site but I don’t know where that is).
I hope this helps
I have a little issue, when I go to sleep I charge my phone, but when I wake up the device is turned off, and this really annoys me because I need the alarm to wake up in the mornings, is there any solution for this?
just find de clock app and wipe the data of it (reconfigure alarms if you have)
I Think i solved it by disabling vibration in alarms
I have to boot the mobile for charge plis fix it thanks
youtube bug? or problem ?
youtube/netflix and the other video apps works fine since release 20141012
I have s3 mini i8200 which differ slightly from the original s3 mini by having 1.2 ghz CPU and lack GPU unit.. Firstly i appreciate your work and i was heading forward to the update by when i review the comments i have few fears .. So, i need anyone who have the same mobile as me to tell me if he have successcul update without any complaints and to tell me the steps briefly for this successful update .. If anyone will help it would be so great
Thanks you guys, this is awesome! No 1GHz bug, battery last about 2 days, and no clock freeze whatsoever. The sound recorder crashes when trying to record wave files (I personally use another app to do that, so I don’t really care). Best release ever.
What about NFC? When CM will support it?
Hi Killer, the short answer is never.
NFC drivers are copyrighted.
I need to thank novafusion for creating these awesome releases for our S3Mini s, which no else one cares enough about.
I am using 20141101 release.
While charging while phone is off, screen freezes in the first animation. When I disconnect charger, the display stays the same and does not turn off in the whole process. Then I have to remove battery or hold power button all the time. This is one issue.
The main issue being the battery. After fully charging the draining is not that fast even though it is faster than stock 4.1.2 was. but once it is below 60-50% it seems that charge drops too fast.
We should to be able to charge the battery is a acceptable amount of time. Charging is so darn slow. Very frustrating.
With the slow charging and explosive drain, the phone is being not much usable. I am having to connect it to charger, when ever i get chance and this can cause problems fr the battery.
Im using the 20141115 release and have the absolut same problem
need help too
set_perm: some changes failed
Hello does anyone know how to use the micro SD card of the S3 mini to install there the apps instead of the internal usage?
Do you know ho to use your micro Sd to install apps instead of the internal storage?
The Youtube is just for 360p. Can you fix this? And put again HD in youtube?
great job with CM11 for the S3 Mini (Samsung sucks!). Good to have people like you.
I Still have 1GHz bug and booting with wifi disabled doesn’t solve it
Novafusion gave up fixing this bug 6 months ago.
Hello, will you continue updating your Kit Kat ROMS? Android L will be nice but I guess it will need months of work to become stable enough.
BTW, CM11 M12 is out.
because to me it was me off my cell having more than 50 percent of battery?
Why youtube is not HD ?
Hello, encryption does not work for me. Will this be fixed?
