RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150210) 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.

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 😉

  • smtkc says:

  • Gurik says:

    Thank you!!! But what about f2fs support?

  • Please fix RIL fail for me

  • Carlos says:

    En modo offline carga la batería pero no sale icono de carga.
    No me deja pasar aplicaciones a la tarjeta SD, me dice que no hay espacio (Tengo 6 GB libres)
    Alguien sabe como quitar el fondo blanco del cajón de las app?

    Por lo demás puedo decir que se puede usar a diario, el APN de movistar lo tomo solo, sin configurarlo, las llamadas no se caen ni pierdo señal 3G, la conexion usb es estable, el video no es primordial para mi pero usare la app camu que nombran aquí.

    Gran trabajo Novafusion, excelente!!!

    3. Very slow, opening apps, navigating through screens etc….

    Gone back to previous release.

    * InCall volume is much better
    * Very gr8 battery autonomy: with Wifi constantly on: more than three days of “lifespan”
    * Video works fine (except in foxnews app: the app crashes when trying to read a video; but oddly, in the CNN app, video works great)
    * USB support
    There is so many things to say …good job!

  • burhan says:

    vpn sorunu çözüldüğünü an yükleyeceğim… beklemedeyim

  • I experience a small issue, nothing serious: When I switch off the phone and connect the charger the animation comes on and stucks, most bright bar at 12:00 position. Also a short vibration when connecting.
    Seems the phone gets stuck as there is no response on the power button. I have to remove the battery and reinstall it to make the phone respond.

    Anyway: great progress over the last few weeks!
    Keep on going!!!!

  • zorions says:

    To update the smartphone, you can only restart a new installation with odin keeping our data.

    I note in passing a bug on the SMS / MMS application that does not make the liason between numbers and names.

    Great job for this ROM.

  • Rob says:

    – Email crashing all the time
    – Music app crashing all the time
    – Very laggy
    – Battery charge doesnt last long

  • +1 dear

    1. Phone disconnect on incoming call immediately after answering the call. That’s really sucks because it makes the other person to think u dont want to answer the call or hanging it intensionally.

    2. Can’t unpin window after pinning a screen. It keeps popping up “press and hold back key at the same time with Overview”. I mostly need this great feature to be fixed.

    3. Not a big bug though but is necessary for some reasons. Can’t play all most video format with Stock player whereas the Official build in Samsung Player play most video formats if not all. I think this could be ported to the C12 ROM.

    4. Still on EDGE and 3G issue. Cant swap from 2G to 3G smoothly without rebooting phone. On my Airtel Sim Card, it only shows “H” and when i try swapping to “E” to conserve battery it don’t swap even after choosing 2G unless i reboot the phone for the effect to take place. Also when swapping back to “H/3G”. Similarly on my MTN SIM CARD it’s only on “E” and when try swapping to H it don’t swap at all even when phone is rebooted. New APN was created but still problem persist.

    All these issues should be put into consideration on next or future updates.

    These all i got for the time.
    Thanks and +1 again for thy work.
