    When will a stable lollipop rom for s3 mini be released ? Im waiting for it for almost a month. It would be better if you stop working on 4.4x and work on 5.0

    • Lucho says:

      Are you serious??
      You’re an asshole… Better than waiting this guys release a stable lollipop you can contract a dev-team, pay for it and then, you will have a lollipop stable release soon…

  • ernycastell says:

    Hello everyone
    I have a serious problem with this rom!
    I want to go from the CyanogenMod 12 aospa with kit kat, I go into recovery and do a factory reset, dalwik / art reset and format / system, then install the ROM and start the installer nova fusion selection preferences and proceed installation does not install anything and it takes one second, impossible as it takes up about 160 mB!
    Help please

  • Pieter W says:

    Just installed this ROM. seems great at first sight. I don’t mind the small language mistakes.
    I do have one question. Is it normal the customization options are very limited? I only have following components under ‘Device settings’: Sound, Display, Buttons, Storage, Battery and Apps. In Carbon 4.4.4 and Cyanogenmod the Device settings were a lot more extensive.

  • ernycastelly says:

    Does the youtube app and the screencast of SCR (screen recorder) with H264 decoder?
    thank you!!!

  • Best most fastest and stable ROM from all this page.
    Thank You Novafusion team grate work.

    I tryed many different rom’s but all of them have it some small isues. Or getting slow after one month use.
    AOSPA the Best.

  • Mike says:

    I tried install this rom from Virginity but I can’t.
    It says: Can´t install package (Wed Oct 8 17:44:21 CEST 2014) over build (Sun May 17 05:13:05 EDT 2015) from S3 mini i8190L

    • Ok, It is easy. Just make a wipe, but don´t forget to make a backup of your personal data. Once you have made a backup, go to TWRP, and perform a wipe. Look here in the site the tutorial to wipe your phone using TWRP. Of course, you can’t install this rom over Virginity, thats why you have to erase (wipe) your phone after try to install Nova’s roms.
