RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150124) of CM12.0 for S3 Mini is available!

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation if you don’t updating from older CM12.0 release.

You need to perform a wipe if you’re migrating from software different than CM12.0!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

  • mile11 says:

    Whaaaaaat? After 4 days nothing fixed?!
    Bad work=no donations for you
    If you keep up shit work i will never donate again
    Think about that!

  • tuga says:

    keep with the good work but this release was no sense. Release something when you have some new stuff. even if you take a month. the time you wasted on releasing this today you cold be doing other stuff with higher importance. Just an advise. Do not take this as bad comment or something negative.

  • Sami286 says:

    This is a big update, ir adds a new boot animación, is muchos more estable and new options in settings.
    Thanx NovaFusion

  • T3seR says:

    Hi and Thx so much Nova Team but I have this issues:

    – Offline charging not working – For me is not a real problem, but yesterday I turn off the cell and put to chage and go sleep and.. surprese without battery all day
    – USB not working with PC – Tried all, deleted drives and nothen
    – Frame Bug on Games – I play Deemo is a good game, but after att to CM 12 the game freezing, the imagem att don’t work, duplicate notes.. and other game with a high frame rate is the same (Asphalt too)
    – RIP 3G – I tried do configure APN Manually but don’t work.
    – RIP some apps – Freedom is a exemple, the name ATL Altagair Sansung has changed to Unknow Device ( I ready this on Google Play on desktop) and some apps don’t work anymore.

    I don’t have random reboots, And freezing in one or two cases (with to much apps opened), I’ll wait for a fix I need to play Deemo Y__Y

  • julian says:

    If i have flash cm12 and root my phone than is my phone buggy as hell!!

  • usb not working green video camera 3g not working

  • LynxSeven says:

    AMAZING RELEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Very nice work:what i’ve noticed after one minute of use:

    * Added cyanogenmond account,
    *ability to directly access the “all apps” app from the homescreen,
    *Much improved stability
    *Actually some really nice battery autonomy

    However, on another note, the icons in the app drawer are a little two crowdy: the drawer’s size chifted from 4*5 to 6*6 and I didn’t seem to find how to set it back as before

  • Defco says:

    I’m weiting for F2fs, what about that?

  • nieng says:

    Music player, and any third party music player is force closing..

  • Christoph says:

    Hey Novafusion, did you stop working on CM11? I’d appreciate another fixing of known issues on CM11. Right now it feels that CM11 and CM12 are both beta-/ alpha-status. Anyways keep up the good work

  • The USB Functions don’t work, FIX THIS!

  • I can’t install any apk anymore

  • ItsPeet♡CarbonROM says:

    Maybe it’s asking for a miracle, but would it be possible to backwards-port the stable ART-runtime from Lollipop to KitKat? 🙂

  • Sexi says:

    How to root this rom?

  • Alex Rocha says:

    On my device it stays on cyanogenmod logo! It doesn`t boot to the system.

  • amb67 says:

    Flashed ROM yesterday and noticed the following issues:

    Phone is now very laggy, flicking through screens, opening apps is a lot slower
    Battery charge is depleted after around 5 hours of light usage
    Phone signal is not as good and i completely lose signal sometimes and have to reboot
    YouTube not working
    Barclaycard app not working
    Facebook locks up and randomly shuts down

    Otherwise another great release, thanks

  • mic says:


  • Wayde77 says:

    flashed rom yesterday and found that there is no way for me to access the extsd or the internal sd via the computer and when i enter settings to switch the usb connection settings crashed….apart from that everything else is great…assistance would be greatly appreciated

    (Device – S3 mini GT-I8190)

  • bigB. says:

    thank you Nova team. A new update for CM11 would be great too.

  • Emerson says:

    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.

  • Andrey says:

    Here write for 3G, but 2G Internet also dont’t work. For me.

  • alfizz says:

    Great work for nova-team 🙂
    I flashed this ROM(20150120)on my i8190 and find this problem: (just share)
    a. At first 3G doesn’t work, it’s just EDGE showed up in stat bar. Then i turned off “profile” in setting, set the network to 3G preferred, and boom the 3G showing up her face 😛
    b. Sometimes, when the phone is locked by slide lock, it won’t be unlocked by slide. For this i have to reboot the phone.
    c. And the battery, for a few hours usage after flashing(70% in battery left) it works fine(not really drains). But when i charging(mobile data enabled) start from 18% battery, it takes 3 hours to climb up to 65%. For this i install another ver (20150124) and that problem gone 🙂
    d. And yes, video taken by camera is green 🙁
    Over all this ROM is great, thanks for nova-team 🙂
    *sorry for my bad english.

  • Zakir says:

  • Stephan says:

    I am facing application crashes (often happens when I start a fresh app for the first time).
    Intermittent loss of mobile network connection. Need to reboot the phone in order to get connected again.
    When I switch off my S3 when it is connected to the power supply, the phone seems to freeze, I see the wheel but it is not rotating.
    Seems that internet connection can be lost when moving from 3G to 2G signal.
