RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New release (20150305) 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 😉

    Great work !

    – Some bad French Layouts (I can help if you need)
    – Bad French translation due to CM12
    – BLN Control doesn’t work
    – Flashlight Long on-time.
    – Bug with Flashlight icon. It desappears when toggle… whereas I did a “Wipe System”
    – Slower than 20150304 release !
    – No EAP-SIM

    • ryan says:

      i did some testing and here are my results

      without xposed
      flashlight toggle will disappear for a second or disappear completely

      with xposed
      flashlight toggle will disappear for a second or disappear completely

      with xposed and gravity-box
      flashlight does not disappear at all

      the fix is to
      install xposed framework
      install gravity-box

      • vope says:


        What is xposed frameword and gravity-box ? How can I install them ?
        If these apps are needed to use flashlight, they should be integrated to the Cyanogen ROM…

      • Tri says:

        I use xposed only for boost mode in greenify, lib files from xposed make the rom so buggy so I revert it to the original one from the rom.

        For me the rom is smoothly and less bug…

      A big hello to the team novafusion , the patch does not work, continuing the bug in offline mode

    • Felipe Raposo says:

      Not everybody speaks English.
      Don’t mention Google Translator because you know that the results are.

      • Joe Morris says:

        English is the most common language on the internet. So it’s common curtosy to speak English. I understand that not everyone likes to speak English and that you’d rather speak your own language but it’s majority rules in afraid 🙂

  • Givanni says:

    Well , installation of the finished rom, gapps installed , everything ok now to test the battery life .
    – Error icon light
    – Native video camera does not take
    I noticed that no longer heated , and is more fluid , I had to delete some things ( wallpapers lives , things that do not use)
    for what else is excellent
    to test it with high expectations
    Great job NovaFusion

  • birraboy says:

    I had the stock ROM and installed CM11 with Odin, since then the offline charging do not work. When I plug the phone to the charger, the screen show the charger circle but it get stuck and do not charge, I have to unplug the charger and press the power button for a while until the circle disappear and I can start the mobile again. I have verified that when I start again the mobile the battery has not been charged. When the mobile is on, it charges correctly.
    Trying to sort out this problem I have installed recovery 2.8, wiped everything, calibrated the battery and installed CM12-Novafusion from Recovery but the issue still persist.
    Do not know what to do to solve it, any suggestion?

  • Geo says:

    First thanks for all your work novafusion team!
    This is my bug feedback (i have all the other bugs people are saying they have and these that i haven’t seen them reported) :
    -power-saving does not work (it can’t be activated)
    -won’t install on f file sistem, it goes on ext4 automatically
    -whenever you have a list especially in Chrome and contacts and you scroll the screen goes berserk with artefacts and stuttering
    (the last 2 bugs weren’t present in one of your first releases i tried in the start)

    Thanks again and keep up the good work!

    Someone has managed to run the FM radio, and try several apps as “Sprint UL” in root mode, but only run out of audio until the restart.

  • Lia Lotta says:

    Floating browsers (all of them: link bubble, hover browser, dolphin float, javelin,…) and fb messenger popup always automatically close after a few seconds, without crash reports or anything. Any idea how to solve that?
    Besides that, beautiful work on bringing cm12 to s3mini!

  • Lia Lotta says:
