  • ZX_ita says:

    I have a S III mini ( GT-18200, Android version 4.2.2 ) .
    I would install this ROM but i see that there isn’t support for my smartphone model, that is last model I think .
    I can install this ROM to my device ?
    I also have another question, in this ROM is available the Android default encrypt method ?

    Regards 🙂 .

    • Seed Vicious says:

      Hi, I don’t know if is the same device. when we speak about s3 mini, we are talking of gt-i8190
      About the encryption, yes, this rom have it but after activate it you can not continue updating it from recovery. (in my case fail and fail again). Only via odin, but after install you need to encrypt the phone again.

  • hi.on this release, offline charging bug is still present?i tried anything to solve that annoying bug with no result.

  • Dany Anaya says:

  • Hors says:

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the fine work!

    had some issues with release 20141212 :
    -Phone does reboot instead of poweroff
    -no Battery loading when powered off (Phone stuck, had to hard-swich off or remove battery)

    ist this solved in 20141214 ?

    Greedings 😉

  • I’m following you are now for a while.
    After 6 months of waiting for a CM11 without clock freeze, i’ve installed this release with a complete swipe of the phone.

    guess what => clock freeze after 6 hours during the night o_O

    any suggestions?

  • Andrey says:

  • Nootification Icon,, Some Not Realy!! Why??

  • mohizzwan says:

    Hie… want to ask…

    I’ve already install. However, after rebooting my phone, my S3 mini appear Samsung booting logo but STUCKED at ANDROID text. Nothing happen after that.

    HELP ME!!!

    • Emmanuel says:

      a mi tambien 🙁 y si me ha funcionado esta ROM soloq ue me cambie a las cmd 12 pero no pude hacer algunas cosas y volvi ala cmd 11 y se queda ahi .-. ya hice un hard reset

  • Tony Crean says:

    On my Samsung Mini S3 8190N, I went to your Downloads page, chose the S3 Mini, and using Clockworkmod I installed cm12.0_golden.nova.20141205 and the appropriate pa_gapps-modular-micro-5.0.1-BETA1-20141209-signed. Prior to this I spent about a day reading up on it because I’d never done anything like this before! I have gone through this procedure two more times since, each time following instructions carefully.
    The camera doesn’t work (nor does the Camera Fix off Google Play). The camera isn’t important. I’ve had a message about not working a couple of times. My question is — I’m stunned by the quality of this release, but I CANNOT MAKE OR RECEIVE PHONE CALLS. I can make and receive texts. The phone rings but there is no connection when I or someone at the other end picks the phone up. I have cleared the cache out, and replaced the sim card.
    Is there an earlier release which is more likely to be trouble-free? Or is there a simple solution I cannot find on the net?
    Thanks! Tony

  • Keshav says:

    My 3G is not working, any ideas?

  • Ignacio says:

    Some problems with charging here:
    1) Offline charging doesn’t work
    2) Charging suddenly stops while the phone is still plugged in and starts discharging
    3) Battery drain due to the phone not entering deep sleep mode

    • Ignacio says:

      Regarding 2) It seems (although I’m not quite sure) that charging stops when a notification is triggered (mail / sms / etc. reception for example)

    • Ignacio says:

      New info:
      Regarding 3) at some point the phone started to enter Deep Sleep mode although not as often as it should (I think) and there is a suspicious amount of “lowbat_wake_lock” going on.

      Regarding 2) I left the battery to drain until the phone went off (at that point it tries to unsuccesfully reboot itself, I think this is not right either) and plugged the phone in with all the radios off (no wifi, no 2g, no 3g, no BT). The phone did charge without interruptions up to around an 80% (reported) and after that it stopped charging and started to drain the battery power.
      Another (maybe) related symptom is that when I plug in the phone the reported battery charge suddenly grows up to 6% more than what was reported when the phone wasn’t plugged in.
      One last symptonm is that when I reboot my phone the reported battery charge drops off between 2% and 3%, I don’t know if this is a bug or this is normal power consumption for a boot up (I doubt it).

      I hope this info is useful for you.

    • Ignacio says:

      New Info: I’ve managed to charge the battery up to 100% by putting it in airplain mode and using a tablet charger (2A). The same procedure but using the factory charger (0.5A) results on the same previous faulty result (phone charging up to 80% approx. and then discharging).

  • Matt says:

    Youtube videos highest quality is 360p… Please fix it

  • Steven says:

    Hi there,

    yesterday I finally did it and rooted my device. Everything seems to work but unfortunately my back and menu buttons are not working (KitKat 4.4.4, CyanogenMod 11.0, 20141214). I guessed this issue has been fixed? Did I something wrong?

    Best regards

  • majkeeelo says:

    od kilku już aktualizacji, wbudowana aplikacja aparatu zapisuje zdjęcia z dużym opóźnieniem, a niektórych nie zapisuje wcale. Dodatkowo po jednej z aktualizacji bateria zaczęła trzymać zdecydowanie krócej, często wytrzymuje ok 10h przy w sumie nicnierobieniu (wyłączona synchronizacja i wifi/3g). Bateria była sprawdzana, ma 100% pojemności.

  • Thiago says:

    USB driver always returns “No driver found”.
    I tried to restore Factory settings, flashed this version again, installed again the Samsung Drivers and Kies, but still can’t connect the phone on the PC.
    USB Debug is activated.
    I’m using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, someone have some issue with it too or know how to solve it?

  • Hedgehog says:

    Hi Novafusion! Great rom!
    There’s a slight bug in this release however. Whenever an app requests Superuser permission, it’s impossible to press the ‘Allow’ button (‘Decline’ button works great). Apps can still be granted superuser permissions by changing the Automatic Response setting in the Superuser options. Please fix!

    PS: If you ever get around to it, please add drivers for wired and wireless Xbox 360 controllers through OTG. My friend is pissed at me for borrowing his PS3 controller all the time…

  • exelix says:

    hi,thanks for your fantastic roms, but now i have this problem: i don’t now if it’s a bug or a my mistake, but when i go into settings -> screen -> Cast screen it looks for bluetooth devices ,I recently bought a samsung smart tv that supports the screen transmission (using a menu function) but the phone can not detect it, i don’t now if i need another kind of transmission but it doesn’t work, also i read that the transmission should take place via wifi and not bluetooth, is that right?
    then how should I do to pass the phone screen on the tv ?
    sorry for my bad english

    • exelix says:

      I just checked, if I change the language to English (I use Italian) does not speak of bluetooth, it says “No devices were found nearby,” could be a translation error, however, the problem remains, the phone does not detect the TV, as can I do?

  • Paul says:

    Hello, yesterday I installed the latest firmware from cyanogenmod 11 20141214. Tonight at 2.48 I unplugged the phone from charging. And from 2.48 to 6.30 phone is dead from 100% to 36%. In statistics, energy consumption was first connection to the network, the second – copsdaemon. What do I do now?

  • Paul says:

    At night, the phone is not only much dead, but lost the network. The network was restored only after a reboot.

  • Paul says:

    How can I convey to you the logs of this state?

    Hello guys! I flashed my since ever stock s3 mini with TWRP + CM11, all of them provided from your download section. It seems to work just fine until I turn the mobile data on, point when, after a few seconds the phone reboots! Aaaand, when it boots the OS, it shows ~2% battery (from a previous 80% a few seconds earlier)… Then it keeps rebooting and doing the same thing… This is annoying…. I used the pico gapps, if it matters :-?? Could anyone help, pls? x((

    thanks a lot

  • JaKB says:

    I tried this release of CM11, but had no 3g. Same issue with the new AOSPA 4.4.4.
    Also, Google Calendar kept crashing under ART on CM11. Worked ok in Dalvik.
    I’ve now switched to the October release of CM10.2, which works just fine so far.

    Maybe the team could look into 3g radio functionality for the nexty round?
    the gCal issue could be something unrelated to CM11???

  • hErMe>S says:

  • Carl says:

    I tried what Vicious said before reseting and flashing, making sure wifi and mobile network was turned off. But my battery drains more quickly than I think it should, even during night when I switch it to airplane mode. Is this the 1GHz bug? But it says in the CM description it has been fixed..

    I’ve got a problem with sim toolkit. it is there in “application” but not in “menu” & I can’t start it.

  • Carl says:

    I have my phone connected to the charger and sharing wireless internet to my computer. With original firmware the battery would charge until it was full and stay there. But with CM it seems the battery is actually switching between discharging to something like 70% and then charging again. Is this normal behaviour or maybe an effect of 1GHz?

    • Luciano says:

      Tal vez solo sea un calibrado de batería, ocupe una app de play store para calibrarla y se soluciono el problema de la batería y si quieres ahorrar un poco de batería limita el CPU a 800 GHz

      Maybe it’s only a calibrated battery, occupying a play app store to calibrate and battery problem was solved and if you want to save some battery limits the CPU to 800 GHz

Do you have any idea on what is wrong and what should I try to do to correcct this ? Thx for help
