RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New stable release (20141208) of CM11.0 for S3 Mini is available!

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

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

    Dual boot ??

  • Nikolai says:


    I tried updating from v.20141208 but the installer stops shortly after the install-wizzard (almost immediately after I press Install Now) and gets me back to recovery main menu. I’m using your TWRP recovery; I wiped cache and Dalvik before install – I followed this tutorial for the update – (Upgrading / switching CM ROMs (only if you already have CM installed) ). Any help would be appreciated.

    I’m new to this so please bare with me.
    I have the S3 mini latin model and correct if I’m wrong, but this is supposed to work with it, right? There were some issues from the start, the capacitive keys didn’t work and after I installed GAPPS from the XDA post, the phone got in a restart loop whenever I suspended it.
    So yeah, I’m well aware that you mention the bug tracker, the problem lies in that I’ve got the official rom for now, and I believe it is within the phone that I must do it.

    In the hope that someone can help me, or blatantly denied me the use of this rom, I’ll leave this here.
    Great job otherwise, cause I know there’s lots of people who benefit from this.

    I’m not an English native speaker have patience if a made a mistake or didn’t make myself clear. Also, you can answer me in Spanish.

    Is it possible the 1Ghz-Bug only appear immediately after flashing a new release?

    • Thomas says:

      After booting you need to wait 2 minutes before checking that the cpu frequency is reduced. But the bug is still not fully fixed. Even after a few days you can not be shure that it reapear. Someone wrote that flashing a different kernel should help.
      So if I notice strong battery drain I check for 1GHz bug and help myselve with switching WLAN off and rebooting.

  • Pou says:

    please new cm11 for ace2 . 🙂

  • Patrick says:

    Another 2 monts and no shits given about the S Advance. I wouldn’t care if there weren’t so many bugs to fix. I still get random rebotts when gaming, watching YouTube videos, or simply browsing. Sometimes, after reboot, some of my games are missing. Not from the appdrawer, but in Play Store too, and I only get them back when I rebott the phone again. I hope you can fix these problems, because they are very annoying. Thanks.
