RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.0

New stable release (20150416) 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 😉

    The APN for Tim Beta (Brasil) is ok?

  • Sutura says:

    As previous people said, I flashed 12.1, so I will be waiting for update on that one. Although it works really really good. Way better than 12.0 IMHO.

    • Sutura says:

      EDIT: Yesterday I went back to CM11. After 2 months or so running CM12 and CM12.1 this week I give up for now. The “caller issue” is real and I can’t take it anymore. All my contacts that call me are angry too. I feel like CM11 is perfect for S3 Mini. If they manage to make a stable ROM of 12.1 I will switch, but for the next few months I am just gonna go and use CM11. Too much issues for everyday use with 5.1.1. It runs really smooth, but dropping bluetooth, which don’t happen at CM11, caller issues, etc. etc. I will just hold back until the 12.1 is refined properly.

  • daniel says:

    @webwiller ——maybe they want the 12.0 as a fixed official version rather than adding more numbers..haha

  • Luca says:
