we were say “nova is the best” but for two months, we are waiting for a fixed video cam. still we should say that “nova is the best”? -a stock user.
Be patient, these having the rom free and still you demand more
now i can say that : “nova was the best”. – i9070 user on 5.1.1
YOU ARE THE BEST :))
Nobody expects you to say that they’re “the best”. They’re doing the best they can to provide a good Android 5 experience – but that takes time. You don’t like it, don’t use it. You’re free to use CM11 – which is working perfectly by now.
Sorry, But that you say it’s not a smart thing, because if you give a little thinking in your mind, you can see they give a hard work in our devices and do the best for us , so, don’t blame anyone, because you don’t do anything just flash.
If you are a stock user why you care if video in CM 12.1 is still green?
They are doing a very hard work to make our old phone to work like the one of last generation without buying a new one.
By the way, thanks Nova Team. Super job, sooner or later you will get it. Keep up.
it is easy to provoking people as you see:D
When do you guys think the camera bug and the incoming call bug will be fixed?
I dont really care about the camera. The most annoying bug so far is not being able to encrypt the phone. Without encryption, it cannot be used to setup company email
Randoom reboots by flashlight fixed?
Contínuo esperando um dia a correção do bug da câmera de vídeo será que e tão difícil de corrigir ?
Alan se ve que primero dan prioridad en corregir otras cosas que para ellos son mas importantes por el momento que el video de la cámara, tarde o temprano lo harán, en CM 11 funciona perfectamente
Thanks so much for your work!
if you don’t like
go back to cm11
install monster UI
theme it to material
monster ui has even changed the recent panel to 5.1
not themed – changed
Thank you Nova 😉
This and the previous release are deleting Google Play Store and Google Services
Did you install the gapps for 5.1?
Google Search does not recognize the microphone.
Great work !
As requested in the topic, here are my bugs
– Bad French layouts
– Bad French translation due to Cyanogenmod
– BLN Control doesn’t work, due to Novafusion kernel, apparently
– Flashlight Long on-time.
– Flashlight crashes when toggle several times, and then it reboots !! Then, I must reboot again because Sim card is not activated.
– No EAP-SIM
– Sometimes when I turn on the screen, the touch doesn’t work.
– Battery drains so fast !
– slower than yesterday release !
other comments :
– No Random reboots yet (only met because of flashlight toggles)
– I didn’t test offline charge yet
To Nova Team:
– could you update the link to download GAPPS, please ? It is broken…
– could you update TWRP to 126.96.36.199 ?
for the battery drain try autokill and phone faster function from cleanmaster application and greenify, that helps alot. my s3 mini is just a very little faster empty than with cm11 kitkat 4.4 from novafusion 🙂
u don’t need BLN control, you can disable the softkey lights via settings: keys.
The offline charging does not work, same dot in the middle of the screen.
Video, still green.
Sometimes the touch screen freezes, needs to turns off momentarily with the power button and starts to respond.
Whatsapp manyt times stops to responds.
Flashlight responds slowly.
Well, this is for the moment.
I have problems with the google playstore, do u have problems with that?
Almost forgot, the sim card is not recognized unless the cell is restarted twice.
It’s happened to me today and I had to reboot the phone.
For me its working good 🙂 it worked on first boot and its working now normally.
Try deleting cache/dalvik after every update you flash through recovery,it helps a lot!
I have done AiVeN, but every time I start the cel it takes time to recognize the sim, never happen with CM11, anyway way it is a great ROM with some little problems but step by step Nova will fix with our help.
Thanks for your suggestion
Almost forgot, I always try to flash through recovery, I think better results
Yes it takes more time,on CM11 it happens too on some updates but then it got fixed. But that is a small bug. Yes recovery is better i think too. Just now my sim card(mobile network) stopped working during call i had to restart my mobile.
Instagram video fixed?
Random crashes for now.
Music App Crash when i play any file
Does anybody knows why the 3G connections get lost intermittent? both using CM11 and 12.1 on a Samsung 8190? I can do a clean install, it doesn’t matter at all, also which version I install. Mostly it happens a couple times a day loosing the connection. Only a reboot helps to re-establish the reception with the service provider. It doesn’t happen this often using CM 10.2, which is by far more stable.
I have the same issue, but also with stock rom and CM 11, till yet I did not try CM12, because of the constant connection loss. I think it is a common hardware issue.
i’m using the cm12.1 version from 12th of may, can i just flash the build frim 19th over the old? like an firmware update via phone? or do i need to make a clean install (full wipe, factory reset amd than flashing the new cm12.1 release?
low in call volume
When the camera error will be solved ??? I’m bored.
I’m having trouble installing “Amazon app” updates (or installing any *.apk for that matter).
Does anyone know what causing it? what can I do to fix that?
Having trouble too with installing some apps and updates. If i find something how to fix it i will write. (BTW try unninstall amazon app and download updated one from web.)
omri I uninstalled, like AiVeN said, the old Amazon app and installed again and no problem. It takes long time to install it, it is not like in CM11, here in CM12.1 is a longer process. So wait
Google Play Store first looks fine. But when I try to load a new app it crashes. After this it crashes at every start.
Addition: GAPPS for 5.1 is already installed.
