RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 11.0

New stable release (20150228) of CM11.0 for S3 Mini is available!

For flashing KitKat, 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 (only from stock ROM).

    Thanks this is such a good ROM!
    I do have 1 issue tho, my external sd card crashed from one day to the other. I have no idea how it happened. I’ve tried to wipe it on pc and by using the recovery mode but they both give an error. The File Manager on my phone gave an error when i tried checking my files on the sd card. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Or is my sdcard completely lost?

  • Javier says:

    where is the link of this version? I do not find in the downloads section

  • Matteo says:

    If recovery shows errors when you try to install rom, you must replace the
    *.zip\META-INF\com\google\android folder with the same folder of an older cm 11 rom.
    In this version left the aroma installer!

  • Sonny101 says:

    Always when I turn off my phone and try to charge, my phone shows me that it’s loading and freezes there until I remove battery and put it again. Everything works fine, just I have to turn my mobile on everytime I want to charge the battery. Is it just with me or does everyone have this problem? If it’s only me, does anyone know how to fix it?

    I am with CM 20150130. For long I am having problems updating Whatsapp as it declares that the downloaded file is invalid. This started happening after I changed to ART from Dalvik.

    I understood from the net that many more were having this issue.

    Today I located a solution in the net, and successfully applied also. Should anyone of you have this issue, you can try it!

    From, https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/whatsapp-with-android-4-4-and-art.75413/

    “Good News! I have managed to install and test all the functions of whatsapp successfully on I9100 Cyanogenmod 11m8 running ART runtime.


    1) Choosing Art runtime in the development options.
    2) reboot should follows and optimizing apps.
    3) install whatsapp from google playstore

    Now this is the tricky part. No matter how many times you try to install whatsapp with Art runtime enabled, It will never successfully install and comes up with an error notification.

    The Solution: when whatsapp is downloaded and proceeding into the installation process, wait for least estimated of 45-90 seconds and then pressing the power button, reboot the device. Upon booting up you will see 1 app is currently optimizing and thereafter Wala~ you get your fully functional whatsapp on your device running.

    (The idea of allowing 45-90 seconds is to allow the estimated time for whatsapp to complete the installation. Pls note that for the above installation it takes that much longer to install than the usual installation of other apps. As long as you reboot before the error notification and sufficient time for the app to install estimated)

    Try the above trick and let me know of what you think. I stumbled upon it by frustration with the installation and decided to force phone into reboot by holding the power button and reboot. LOL! [​IMG]

    ************I believe it works for other phone models as well**********”

    I followed the instructions exactly.

    The confusion came when it started installing.
    I allowed the installation to start, but before it got completed I rebooted and it was good for me!

    • Mani says:

      Sorry, don’t follow my above posting. it is now not working! Sorry again. CM can remove my earlier posting please.

      • Mani says:

        Working after some temporary problem for once! Immediately on booting and upgrading it did not work, and reported error, based on which I posted my negative comment as above.

        Subsequent to that, I find it working. I have also verified the version to be the latest one.
