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:

    VPN not work please fix…

  • Luiz Renato Zanoni says:

    Call (send and receive), working OK.

  • LYNXSEVEN says:

    Thanks a ton !

    Everything works fine! Gr8 job

    However, I noticed something odd while formatting /System into F2FS format: after installing the rom, it switches back automatically to Ext4 format … meanwhile, / Data remains in F2FS format

    But other than that, a thousand thanks! kudos

    • tommy prud'homme says:

      i suppose that it revert /system to ext4 because f2fs is simply “partially” working, like i heard dunno where. it keep /data as f2fs because it is working correctly 😛

      thanks maclaw, for your hard work! nice to see such quick release like that! im a bit sad because i just flashed cm12 yesterday and now ill need to reflash it 😛
      thanks NovaFusion, you’re all Beasts! 😛

  • rwgamer says:

    receive call app phone crash

  • RaheshK says:

    Great work guys but for some strange reason my ram usage is always at a critical level and every time I go back to the launch screen it has to reload it. It also takes forever for me to switch between apps

    • Mike Broom says:

      I have the same with Apus Launcher or the stock launcher.. Makes no difference which is default..

    • hghggg says:

      Ram usage is huge and rom is buggy

    • Phelipe says:

      The same happens with me in the last 6 cm12 releases, or something like this. I Came back to CM11, using the same apps installed and obviously using more a less the same number of apps at the same time and this doesn’t happen any time.

    • ryan says:

      this is a problem with android lollipop that only Google can ix
      the error is known as a memory leak where apps think there is not enough ram so they restart

      Google should fix this in android 5.1 apparently coming at the end of febuary

      • prince says:

        Hi ryan i have the same problm…..takes forever to go back to thi launcher.like u have sai ”restart” and i have downloaded all versions of L 5 but i end up with thi same issue..so i went back to 4.4.4 🙁 any help please let me wknw.im sad

        • ryan says:

          it’s a bug in the android 5 code so any phones which have android 5 will have the same problem unless the phone has 3gb or more even nexus 6

          don’t worry though android 5.1 is supposed to come out at end of february

          android 5.1 fixes – changes

          Silent mode re-added
          improvements to fix system crash on some devices
          Improved RAM – This should fix the app restarting problems
          Fixes for sudden app closures – apps closing without reason
          Improved battery management
          Issues with wireless connections fixed
          Problems with Okay Google function solved
          Notifications problems solved
          Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed

    • Florian K. says:

      1.Install Xposed for Lollipop (It has been released yesterday I think 😉 ) and activate root access (in the developer settings)
      2.Install App Settings (module) (Google after it 🙂 )
      3.Set your Launcher as permanent/always (click at the checkbox)
      Have fun 😀
      (Maybe Xposed for Lollipop won’t work because its still in beta. To deactivate Xposed because of a bootloop, press any keys 5 times short an then long (your phone will vibrate)

  • @lt.core says:

    Dev please TWRP V2.8.5.0 CM11 & CM12, Xposed CM12, and please can you possible MULTI ROM (CM11 & CM12) S3 MINI RAM 1 GIGA??? 🙁

    • Egg says:

      They are not in charge of Xposed..and for that matter…go check xda…it was released on-two days ago. As for MultiROM….i can’t see why would you ever stuff you phone with 2 ROMs….since our S3 Minis barely handle one. Also…I don’t think there’s anything that NovaFusion can do on that matter too (but you are welcomed to correct me on this issue).

  • Luis Fernán says:

    I don’t know if it’s just me but, my phone got really slower with this update, also it has problems with the apps, when I onpen one, it really goes slow bebore changing to the other or just crashes. And, some times, it re-boots it self. Any advice?

    • Lynxseven says:

      I had the exact same problem of random reboots, and lots of slowdowns.
      I had to go back to the previous release.
      Also, has anyone noticed that after formatting /system in F2FS, it automatically swithes back to ext4 upon intallation of the rom?
