conexion USB don’t work
Thank you NF!!!
how about MTP? how to enable MTP, sometime error in setting when i enable MTP.
Two bug 🙁
What did you find
Camera works for imaging. But video taken by it just green scattering pixels.
Can not install applications from foreign sources
I if I can install applications from unknown sources
Open unknown source dumb2
go into settings
look for something that says unknown sources and make sure it it off
You can turn this on in your settings….
in the post reads, Stable, my question is: your RECOMMEND it as everyday ???
Yes, It’s really stable if you don’t need your camera 😉
Camera works for imaging. But video taken by it is just scattering green pixels.

Hi, on my s3 mini is installed CyanogenMod 11, to install the 12 I have to do a wipe?
Yeap you need a Perform Wipe

if you wait for cm12 to have f2fs support then you wont have to wipe data
Thank NF! Great as always, USB stil doesn’t work..

You have to install gapps every time you update

Thank you !!! It’s a very good work !!! and for usb use WIFI FTP on google play Just 2,5 mo/s but it’s very great, use Filezilla!
Does anyone knows if xposed framework work with this?
There’s no Xposed for any android 5.0
Is it becouse it doesn’t support ART ?
What about 64GB sdcard support?
the computer won’t recognize my phone . it says that there are an mtp device is connected but i cant do any thing such as transfaring media and thats not good at all ):
USB doesn’t work yet!
You are the best! Thanks!
Thanks the graphics fluidity is better… I’ll be looking if signal works all time

Well… I love CM 11 and CM 12, but I can’t be losing phone calls by Signal Connection issue…
As before, the bug, when i lock the phone, it do a fast reboot, stil exist 🙁
Sorry for bad englisch again
But anyways, thanks for the Update, great work
Hi 🙂 thanks novafusion nice work, It won’t let me install certain games still (minecraft) also I have 14gig space free on my SD card but if I try and move apps over it says not enough space?
I can’t install minecraft neither.
Not install clockwork mod ?
CWM isn’t usefull for SIII Mini
Cuz of that you need to install TWRP or use ODIN 🙂
Thank you for your hard work NF
When will solve the problem with the camera?
Does not work in my camera, USB connection and charging offline 🙁
Thank you again for your hard work!
Super cool! Thank you very much novafusion!

Can not install applications from foreign sources (previously it worked on CM12)
Great work! 🙂
It works very fine for me, thank you so much for developing 🙂
Only thing i noticed is that tearing still sometimes occurs,
but that’s indencidal for now 🙂
Sorry for my ~english 🙂
USB doesn’t work
Video doesn’t play on twitter and instagram
Adam gibi çalış maclaw
USB için Samsung driverlarına da bir güncelleme gelmesi gerekiyor kanımca. Bu yüzden cihazı PC’ler tanımıyor. Daha geliştirilen sürümler. Bir aya kalmaz hiç bir Böcek kalmaz.
Adam gibi çalış diyebilmen için bunun daha iyisini yapabiliyo olman lazım
and need allways after turning off ohone set a voice call message
Anyway, some Bugs appeared to me.
– Connecting to the pc is only in the recovery mode possible (tried with and without usb-debugging)
– Weather widget bugged (solved after a restart)
– Camera crashes after a shot
– a little bit much english in the german source 😛
Works very well, but have flickering
great wok NF!! thanks for the update .. i always check everyday if there’s a new update here .. and i am very glad to see update. but i am waiting for the usb to be fix .. 😀
Corre muy bien ya se ajustaron los errores que salían al pasar de pantalla a pantalla
A mi me sigue pasando lo mismo al pasar de pantalla solo se soluciono por un tiempo cuando instale esta actualizacion
the usb mtp don´t work thanks for your job and i´m sure that fix has solution soon.
Thank you for the update, I hope that soon we can move apps to sd card!
Excellent, testing and all excellent , with exception of the bugs mentioned
Hats off to you guys for the awesome work. If it weren’t for you, I would have thrown my S3mini out the window long time ago 🙂
You guys rock …. hats off ….. salute !!
One issue to report – MTP not working. PC does not install the MTP drivers. Tried virtually everything – reinstalleed Samsung mobile drivers, reinstalled Keis, updated windows, downloaded MTP kit from microsoft.
But still doesn’t work.
Changes to this yesterday, cannot see major issues for me next to the mentioned issues, Well done !!! Many thanks
F2Fs support? Please answer me, it’s really important
No you need EXT4-partitions.
You think that will be supported?
Could be! ’cause Antares ( developer for Galaxy S4) showed a Rom based in Cyanogenmod 12 Beta and F2Fs works here!
Nice release! But when i connect power when my phone is off he stays by the loading circle
Why I cannot update new version directly from About Phone > CyanogenMod updates > check for updates ?
Because this is unofficial CyanogenMod rom.
because it is unoffical CM12, NF team ported to us,
Is there no chance to edit this function to work with novafusion’s server?
You can patch the sources from https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_packages_apps_CMUpdater if you ask NF maybe he implement this in his rom.
I think, the function was probably deliberately omitted because NovaFusion ‘projects are funded by advertising on this site 🙂
*usb stil doesn’t work..
*not charging in offline mode
*YouTube does not work
YouTube works for me.
Başka bi sorun vardır onda.
yok hacı sildim yükledim, sistemi kaldırdım derinlemesine formatladım tekrar kurdum, marketi kurdum tekrar yükledim ama fayda yok! 🙁
Thank you Novafusion.
-Problems with Wifi. First connect is OK. But reconnect to the wifi-network don’t work.
-mobile data : it works after manually setup APN
-1GHz : actual frequenzy Seen fixed show 1000MHz
Minimum frequenzy shows apparently the actual frequency. It varies between 200 and 1000MHz.
But after turning on the phone it seems very long to remain at 1000 MHz
Great job , very fluid system . However I still have the same two previous problems .
I can not connect to 3G network operator VIVO BRAZIL .
And Also I can not connect to my desktop via USB.
create a new apn manually restart the device and wait until the Internet will work, eue stava with the same problem with TIM Brazil , and it worked .
You’ve got to enter the new APN manually… Here’s how to do it:http://youtu.be/FOm4ctxTx0I….. Here’s the settings for VIVO Brasil http://goo.gl/9CE5Xf
Está tudo funcionando? Estou com a CM11 20141208 e estou com receio desta ROM estar pior…
O pessoal aqui não entende português.
Posta em inglês que eles respondem.
MTP , USB Work ?
No, both of them does not work. Can not connect to pc. It is just charging
Just found a bug: “Move to SD Card” doesn’t work (which in turn affects apps which have android:installLocation=”preferExternal” set in their AndroidManifest.xml). I guess this is an upstream (CM12) bug..
Going to wipe everything to EXT4 and test! Great effort NOVA!
Unfortunately, installing a CM11 theme (Blue Fire) broke something.
Non-stop SystemUI crashes, also after rebooting. I restored my Kitkat Carbon 🙂
Does anyone have succesfully installed a custom theme yet?
Just a Boot animation.
You can’t install cm11 themes on cm12 because of material design.
Ah. Didn’t know that. What a pity! I bought a lot of custom themes, cm9, cm10, cm11….. All work under KitKat.
i have random reboot dose someone have a fix?
i cant find the direct download link? can anybody tell me how to download the zip file???? please~~~
I cant use twrp manager… It shows a message saying that i need to root to use it, but i already installed the ROM whith Odin, it is a bug? Help me
Presently which ROM are you using?
This ROM isnt pre rooted?
it is you must enable it in developer options though(which is very easy)
You need to enable it from the developer mode
I had to enable it tapping 7 times on built number haha wtf thank u guys 😉
Thankyou Nova fusion.
Editable Notification panel
Outgoing calls is little bit slower.
MTP not working.
Video by camera is green (as mentioned)
hi everybody! What is the best stable version for s3 mini?
Who knows any CM12 custom themes???
Here is the list of CM 12 themes
Does YouTube work? What’s about the battery, and works it well?
YouTube worsks up to 480p but sometimes crash and battery lidé is best of all roms for this phone i thing but my battery doesnt show correct data (hw no ROM problém)so i cannot say it correctly
this rom are installed with the super user or as I do for root
I had some issues. There is no SuperSU and i cant find any root file for CM12. So i turned back to CM11
All you need to do to gain root access is to activate it by going in to About Phone -> Tap 8 times the build number or whatever is that below the Kitkat Version and you will activate developers option and On Root Access.
All Cyanogen roms have root integrated, all you need to do is activate it on the dev options…
I’d like to report two bugs:
1) MTP still doesnt work
2) It seems like the ROM isn’t rooted.
Also, when i tried to reboot to system, FROM recovery, it doesnt boot to system at all, it bootloops.
It is rooted, activate the root access on the dev options
When I play in easteregg I have flicker
CPU no longer goes into deep sleep. Before I installed this release the cpu would go into deep sleep when the screen was turned off. Now that does not happen and my battery lasts less then 12 hours. Please fix guys, otherwise great job.
Nice and working rom except from: SMS is working, but no working Mms ?? Why? Do you have any solution?
Rgds Jan- Norway.
Try GO SMS PRO, It might work… .. 🙂
Thank you for work. Bugs:
* incomming calls does not pair with contact numbers
* cannot connect device to PC using USB
Thank you very much to all team. It’s a excelent work. 🙂
Music app keeps crashing, also, I’m using a Bluetooth headset, and when it crashes it disconnects my headset as well. Performance improved a lot compared to the previous build.
Been having the same issue with crashing music since 31/12 release :/ The only fix i have found is factory reset but even then the music app starts crashing after a while (However you can hear music before). I miss my music D:
Do you have a volume problem when using another application along with music? In my case, I use Waze along with Music, when the Waze voice goes off, the volume in Music starts raising itself to the point it get distorted, I have to press the volume button to make it stop, after applying the volume button it goes to the volume level it was set previously, it’s weird.
Hi I have problems with the CM12 , I installed several versions and fails to boot animation … that I can do ?. I have like nine months with CM11 and works great
I can’t install any apps from another source :'( … Very long time… (From december?)
as you enter the developer mode?
mtp doesnt work for me too, tested today.
after downgrade to cm11 mtp is ok.
USB does not work, I can not install some games but the rest works well I seriously wonder who put the flashlight application to control the brightness
and also would be nice if you could add more tiles to the notification bar, thank you very much for your effort Novafusion 🙂
From my point of view this is AWESOME. Its fluid its stable no restarts decent RAM consumption and good battery life. I recommend updating from cm 11 to this release.
“Bugs” i have encountered :1Ghz bug because apparently minimum and maximum cpu where set to 1000 mhz , i just put the minimum to 200 and now its ok, i find the call volume kind of low, alarm clock did not go off and i set 2 alarms to be sure (almost lost my job interview :)) ) and i don’t know why i cant restore apps from my titanium backup (that’a a bummer).
If you guys have any questions about these release and are not sure if to install it or not just reply to this post what do you want me to test for you and ill tell you the outcome.
Nova Fusion you guys are the best!If i get that job you’ll have a nice donation! XD
I have an error:
Warning: No file_contexts
E:Error in /external_sd/cm12.zip (Status 7)
Error Flashing zip
Update the TWRP.
Thank You NovaFusion.
But I can’t find the gapps.
I8200Q modeline uygun mu bu rom lütfen uygun deyin pls ?
maalesef uygun değil
Sakın deneme telefon gider.
Guys, my kidd uses my device to play some games and I am not comfortable in move to CM12 to do not wipe data and lost his won. Is there a way to backup his games and restore after install Lollipop
You could try doing a nandroid and then trying cm12 and if dosent work just reinstall the nandroid,no? i tried backing up apps+data with titanium when i try to recover it just stays like there and does nothing. I did find some kind of solution i installed the game from playstore and had Titanium restore only my data and it this case it works…with some games.
Thanks NF Team
You doing a great job

I also have a problem with incoming calls dropping after ~2 seconds at random. Outgoing calls are fine, not a single drop, but incoming calls sometimes just cut off, while other times they are perfectly ok.
Also, settings app crashes at times for me, not sure what causes it.
And yeah, impressive work on getting this to work on such an old-ish device. Kudos to all devs 😉
Thanks great job if i had money i would donate 🙁 sorry but im a child continue with the great job amazing rom:-)

On my phone, i8190l: Slower than CM11KK4.4.4.
Thanks NFusion .
You Guys Rocks!
Stucks on Cyanogen Boot Animation it keeps rolling and rolling,,,, any suggestions ?
Probablity 1: It’s a bad flash, reflash it or install another one.
Probablity 2: Something else is blocking boot, it might be Google apps, any other additional apps etc.
Probablity 3: You played with the zip file, download a fresh one.
Probablity 4: You phone is dead, go get a new one.
Probablity 5: Your phone can’t handle custom ROMs anymore, install stock ROM.
I’ll be happy if you let me know if one of theese worked.
(I’m 100% sure that probablity 4 will work 😀 you don’t even need to check if your device is dead :D)
Well anonimderp is a pessimist :)) Alvarez the same happen to me too. I forgot to format in EXT4. if you format in ext 4 in twrp and then reinstall the rom it works
I’d formatted using ext4 in twrp and flashed still stuck at Samsung Logo. I tried several times. Any suggestions?
Is back and menu buttons fixed? It didn’t work in last builds
2 small things: Unlock is work at the 2. Try working. At the first is no reaction by (Music Widget/Whatsapp)
USB dont work
Cannot move file from internal to microsd or micro to internal
Please fix USB problem!!
First of all you made a great job, but some stuffs are still looking strange… For instance, the messenger app only show phone numbers instead of contacts names… Then, two third of my system is written in french but the one left is written in english (I think stock lollipop system is translated whereas Cyanogenmod stuffs aren’t)… One more thing, I can’t change the lockscreen wallpaper…
In spite of these little problems, the system is great thank you very much !!
(Sorry for my english I’m french..)
I neither can change the lockscreen wallpaper. It’s because of the ThemeEngine of this version. I hope they fix it. Apart from that, great job NF
Thanks for themes great release
Offline charging is not working and kill my cell
f2fs Support ?
I have a problem when setting the alarm clock. The icon appears and desappears on the status menu. It is not possible to enable the alarm
I am too. Off/on alarm, reboot your phone.
List of the bugs I found:
*Can’t move apps to SDCard although I have 5 GB free space in it
OK I admit it Im not a bug finder and this is not a list just two things I found incidentally.
Great release, some small issues but it’s still my everyday phone choice:
Youtube shuts down randomly after a minute or two and you can’t cast your screen.
3G rarely works and I work in London
Sometimes and this is quite rare, the phone locks up, usually at night, all I see is the whirly circle thing in a black screen. Looks like it has shut down and won’t boot due to it being on charge.
Apart from that it’s awesome…. keep going guys, this is great work.
Apps randomly close.
Netflix has a bug?
One bug besides video recording. there is when i try to log in into tumblr it stop or crash. but thanks a lot Nova fusion 🙂 great work
NO CONEXION USB
Anybody know, Maclaw does support BLN ?
Hi guys, I have a question.
The button on the home screen that leads to all your apps vibrates when I press it. Is there a way to disable it?
After flashing CM12 my IMEI was lost.
Congrats for the great work.
Things that i notice I8190:
– MTP fault when conecting to PC.
– some apps ( chome, facebook) crashes with bugs, not sable, sometimes freeze and close.
– don’t charge when off, always show the circule bars.
– new theme options ok , but there is no option to change the lock screen image or other options for that screen, or possibility to se the home screen in apps menu.
– sometimes the ringtones of the SMS that we choose goes away and appears numbers.
– the clock app to wake up its very bug, can’t use because goes crazy.
That’s some off the things i notice.
Sorry if was inconveniente and my english.
Keep the excelente work.
Regards from Portugal.
Pls resolve the USB connection or is there anyway that we amateurs can resolve this ???
appreciate if you could reply.
failed when flashing.
VPN is not working :/ :'(
but overall this rom ROCKS 😀
MTP is working, just the computer detects the connection, does not work the file browser on computer
Thanks, great work team Nova Fusion.
This rom will be ( , and is )best than KK!!!!
waiting for the next updates!!!
Skype is not working. I can here the persons calling but they cannot hear me.
Sound is soft when playing through speakers and head phone’s. Also problem with the USB it’s only connecting via mtp
can you finalise carbon please
very bad battery drain
I would be quite useful if you lauch an app like CyanDelta (if you can, I think it would save time for us to download the updates and you for being informed if something’s wrong earlier)
Here are my bugs :
– Reboot when I downloaded a file with Bluetooth and just after disactivated WiFi
– No USB
– Not fully French translated
Problems with CallRecorder 1.6.5 (not recording). But stock rooted works fine with the default settings
Add in the next release a screenshot option.
There is, hold volume down and power
gallery not working after play video
it’s great but i want more battery life and the music player have lag
where I can find the gapps ?
MTP doesn’t work
thanks a lot! it is great.
is it a known problem that the phone turns off often after the battery is fully loaded?
and the not working vpn is also hurting…
On the version 0124 i have a issue on the instagram. When i open the APP, in the first time, the videos works. But when i close and open again, the APP crash when i go watch videos again. Sorry my bad english. Thanks NF for uploads.
i have the latin version of the golden boy but it keeps closing apps whe video is playing and some of the just keep crashing but i know that its stll a beta keep the awesome work boys your cm11 its amazing 😀 looking forward for the cm12 final version like you did on the other roms
Hello, I wanted to tell you the 5.0.2 lollipop jerky very strong for the mini s3 graphics-cm at 12 Android. This is especially useful live wallpaper, games and watch while scrolling. Could you do something about it?
in Indonesia still have not functioning , please reference
youtube works only with headphones
Thanks for the great build! Managed to get APN set up and can confirm that mobile data is working.
Unfortunately, MTP is not working at all. Additionally, the storage settings dialog crashes right away when i change the protocol (to PTP or set MTP again). Is that supposed to be working?
Got a plain I8190 without branding or simlock.
Heavy battery draining 🙁
Does not recognize the USB connection.
I do not recognize or me updated superuser binary.
Video camera records in green.
Bluetooth connection is not very good
Tried using Odin and Recovery with TWRP both ways it all works fine but some apps that require root say phone isn’t rooted when it is.
Found the reason – you have to go into Developer Options/Root Access to enable root
Hi team, I am not sure if this is the correct channel for this question, and it is not mandatory, it is just a question.
Does this ROM support move to SDCard feature? I am always receiving an error saying that I don´t have space on the card but I have 7.5Gb +.
I have never used this feature before so I am just curious about it.
thanks in advance.
update:that was the previous release,so they claimed that they fixed theme engine,ignore 1 if they were true
this ROM sucks on so many levels
