RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150209) of CM12.0 for S3 Mini is available!

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

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free 😉

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.


  • updated CM12.0 sources
  • fixed MTP/PTP media transfer
  • fixed ADB debug bridge
  • reintroducing USG OTG support
  • video recording with workaround – install app like Camu
  • Odin package update


  • RIL (phone/SMS/3G)
  • audio (both speakers/headphones/microphone)
  • Wi-fi
  • Bluetooth 4.0 with LE support A2DP
  • GPS/Glonass/A-GPS
  • sensors
  • compass
  • camera (taking photos and videos)
  • video playing
  • 2D/3D HW Acceleration
  • all native tethers (Wifi/BT/USB)
  • Google Play
  • CPU sleep mode
  • MTP
  • ADB
  • no tearing
  • tripple buffering
  • external storage
  • SELinux
  • offline charging


  • video taken by stock camera app is green, but some apps like Camu taking correct videos without any issues
  • less than 2% of users are reporting issues with mobile data – just add new APN manually with settings proper for your provider and apply it to make 3G working

I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors 😉

    Thank You Nova. I have some bugs for you.

    – Music app crash.
    – Camera (Video) Green
    – Compass not Working.
    – FM radio not Working. (Tested with Spirit UL)
    – LPM / Offline Charging buggy
    – Random reboots.
    – Flashlight Long on-time.

    Can you Build This ROM with your 3.0.101 Kernel?

  • Benas says:

    These custom ROMs are a bit more laggy than the stock ROM. When I go to Settings>about phone I see that you’re using your own kernel, why aren’t you using the stock kernel? Would it crash the OS because of lollipop? Let me know 🙂

  • Defco says:

  • Wolfie says:

    You can get a working proxy. All you need is an app called orbot and Firefox.
    Download Firefox then orbot. Follow the instructions that are given (but don’t grant root access). A list of apps that work with orbot will show. Select Firefox.
    When Firefox will open download the addon that is provided.

    Note orbot won’t work unless you have orbot on.
    Also note orbot is a tor proxy

  • DMT says:

    I downloaded the Camu, but when I go finish recording says the application stopped. But when I’ll look the recording there is no problem in the video!

  • ME says:

    Well… i cant say this often enough but… THANK YOU.
    You basically fixed everything.

  • ME says:

    And also… you should put “F2Fs support ” in your features of this rom.And put this rom in the Tutorials (where a list of F2Fs Roms is)

  • Anne says:

    Hello, I’m loving the new release and I’ve started using this as my everyday ROM.
    One thing that’s really bugging me though, is that VPN services such as Psiphon or Hotspot Shield don’t work. I’ve enabled Root Access to Apps and ADB but it still says: “Root mode is not supported on this version of Android.” Does anyone have any solution to this?
