RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 12.1

New stable release (20150702) of CM12.1 for S3 Mini is available!

Please, test it and report any bugs!

For flashing Lollipop, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

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.

  • less than 2% of users are reporting issues with mobile data – just add new APN manually with settings proper for your provider and apply it to make 3G working

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 😉

If somehow you’ll find a bug, use our bugtracker if you want to report it.

    During a call, press volume down, volume up and then volume increases.
    When the new call has to be repeated ..
    Please repair the volume.

  • Ahto says:

    One thing. THIS SITE, is not mobile friendly. It’s next to impossible getting any of the S3 Mini packages using phone itself. Site does’nt load fully, download gets interrupted, or you simply can’t access the relevant section at all.Or if you do try again, get IP-banned.

    Each time I have to go trough idiotic cycle of finding computer, downloading the packages, then copying them over to the phone. Fix this shit please. Site dedicated to cell phones, should be usable browsing from one.

    the microphone in the dialer works, but in the other app does not work!!!!!!!

  • Felipe Raposo says:

    I would like to thank the developers of this awesome ROM.

    I’ve been using it (CM11) for over an year, and I can say that this is a outstanding job. This ROM is way better than stock. And I’m confident that CM12.1 will get there as well.

    Now my S3 Mini has finally died, and I had to buy a newer one. But this ROM saved some extra time with my old S3 Mini.

    Best regards

    Does nova fusion keep phone logs? I’ve spotted some logs on my device for one of the older kit kat mod I downloaded? What should I do? DO they send the logs to their servers?

    • AiVeN says:

      Yes i found 2 logs too,there were 2 pictures of captured screen in each of them.

      • ilikesomu says:

        Yes same! My took screenshots of my main screen, it also somehow managed to screen capture my phone as soon as I entered the correct password which is odd. My logs has a .txt file which has loads of weird stuff.

        Does this mean these mods are secretly spying on us? Help!

    • fevio says:

      In which folders are your screenshots located? And what’s the name of the log file?

  • Koen8926 says:

    – Apps to SD doesn’t work
    – native FM radio support does not work

    • saygone says:

      Native FM doesn’t work and will not be working – it was told few times already.

      About moving apps to SD it is not because Nova did something but only CM issue on which they are working on.

  • vope says:

    Great work.
    Here are my bugs :

    – Bad French layouts
    – BLN Control doesn’t work, due to Novafusion kernel, apparently
    – Still torch Long on-time.
    – Still torch crashes when toggle several times… then the phone reboots
    – No EAP-SIM
    – Sometimes when I turn on the screen, the touch doesn’t work.
    – Battery drains so fast !
    – slower compared with previous releases
    – Problem when toggle “Data” icon (it can desappears, or exclamation mark is not shown). There was not this bug on the first releases CM12.0 et CM12.1

    To Nova Team:
    – could you update the link to download GAPPS, please ? It is broken… and I asked it several times
    – could you update TWRP to ?

    • Wolf says:

      Dude, you say the same damn things! At least be more specific, otherwise bug off, becaise they already know about these bugs. BTW, a little bug: sometimes after unlocking my phone it doesnt recognize touch input, although I can lock it again and it all works fine afterwards.

      • Elmario says:

        Why are you so rude?
        I read the comments for every new version, so I can see if the ROMis ready for daily usage. It’s nice and useful knowing what current bugs there are. Even it it’s repeating all the time, it’s not his fault butjust a matter if fact. If you consider yourself too ‘pro’ for dealing with that, then maybe you simply shouldn’t bother reading comments here, but got to xda and help fixing those bugs.

  • demonic says:
