  • Mani says:

    Great. Congratulations.

    For two reasons, I stopped after an update for 4.4.4 long back. I am 62 now:
    First is because an injury in my head I lost memory for a short period, and secondly on recovering I found my confidence to experiment with further releases also was gone.

    I have been simply reading observing the camera issue alone in further releases.

    But now this news has made me jump again to try it even if stops as an experiment for me.
    Because your achievement is marvelous.
    Keep it up.

    Hi Novafusion, Congratulations for fixing the camcorder, I always used your ROMs on my S3mini but never commented because every ROM worked for me except the camcoder issue and today you guys have proven that You Guys are the Best! Thanks and keep up the amazing work.

  • Pablo says:

    I have problems with the clock. I receive the message “The Clock has stopped” and can’t start the clock.

  • Jeffrey says:

    Hello, I have a I8190N, I had installed this version and no longer starts, but inside TWRP, I can not format or install the rom
    Does anyone know a solution?
    Excuse my English is bad, very bad (Translated by google translator)

    • T3seR says:

      What you’re maded?
      To flahs it you need format factory first, so, make an backup first, after that, you flash the TWRP and restar the phone, after that you can able to flash the ROM and wait be the end, when the config windows appear you turn off and install gapps, some times if you trie to install the rom and the gapps you can “kill” the phone or only the rom install without gapps.

      • Jeffrey says:

        had installed the previous version, the upgrade and was working well after restart and now does not pass the logo “Samsung GT-8190N” from the download mode leaves a red line which says: movi_write card_status: 2

        • Jeffrey says:

          within the recovery in the log shows several red lines with “E: error: I / O error”

          • Deybyd Jimenez says:

            I think that you smartphone just died 🙁 I’m not sure, but is the only thing that I can imagine. If I’m not wrong, that is the system partition, you should try to flash your phone from odin with a stock rom, is the only chance that you have. I hope that works and I really hope that you understand my bad English ahahahah

  • The video is not in focus, and in low light, there appears to be a green vignette around the screen. Im using google camera.

  • T3seR says:

    Thank you Nova team you work is amazing, but the battery drain very fast…

  • EminKDB says:

    only what is wrong when I use the touch screen, the button lights remain few seconds. When the original sin (Samsung TouchWiz) button lights on only if I press the button.

  • marcelo625ar says:

    awsome!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE THE BEST. From Argentina thank you

  • sc_by says:

    It took only 2 years, and a week after I got a new phone, lol.

  • Arnold says:

    Time to work on CM13 for s3 mini then 😀

  • Tan says:

    First thanks for Video Record fix 🙂

    I have a issue doe; I can’t install specific apps. I’m getting (Error #963 or #907) I tried all the “fixes” on google but none work for me. I can’t install the Facebook (I can download Lite version) And my favorite game “Growtopia”. I was have this issue past 3 builds. On previous build I just can’t install Facebook. Hope you guys fix this issue. Keep up the great work Nova 😉

  • Mohamed says:

  • Rico Hensem says:

    How can i apply f2fs on system partition? Every time i flash with twrp (even so i already formated /system as f2fs before fashing) it still revert back to ext4s. Do i need to download the odin version?

  • The update installed fine for me, and the app preparing process (after emptying dalvik cache and rebooting) succeeded. But then it gets stuck at the “starting apps” screen. Several reboots and wipes didn’t help.

  • John says:

    Thank you nova !! please android 6.0 release !!!!!!!

  • Michael says:

    I checked this version, and so far I really have to say: Thank you for this great version!!!

    But: How I can see if the battery is charging? I do not have any icon in the status menu who shows by different color that the phone is charging.

    Somebody who can help?

  • Jack says:

    I’ve read the comments and it seems that it is without any issues, so should I install it or wait a little bit more ?

  • Ghj says:

  • Emirhan K. says:

    thanks novafusion 🙂 please Cyanogenmod 13 & Android 6.0 roms please 🙂 loves you nova fusion

  • Roman says:

    I can’t install it at f2fs, automaticaly change the system partition to ext4.

  • Thanks to buddha!! heheh Thanks nova for fix the issue with camera. i’ve installed the rom without problem. fast, smooth, a litle battery drain… no problem during instalation… for users do a full wipe. if the wipes fails… try to flash original rom flash the recovery… that issue is caused by using
    f2fs filesystem support selected by user… then, when u flash the rom (cyanogen) appears the issue…
    f2fs to ext(etc).

  • Alin Narcis says:

    I have istalled this version, i like it, but you still have much to work. I don’t like how it mooves and i have return to 4.1.2 rooted. Wifi still works slow and some apps on magazin play don’t install and clock force stop.

  • prabeesh ps says:

    APK FILE Unable to install.please fix this.

  • Michael says:

    Nice Version, still busy with testing it…

    One small question: As soon I open an app with root-rights it shown up a hash key (#) in the top line of the phone. In older versions of CM I remember that SuperSU needs an update. But where can I find this app? I can turn on root access in the denvelopmenu like always, but there is no further adjustment in the main menu like it was before…

    Has somebody a sulution?

  • Christie says:

    Is anyone else experiencing problems with the SIM? After a while my phone says NO SIM then I have to reboot to have it again.

  • Excellent work! Finally you’re fix the camera !

  • Elias says:

    Hi there! Greetings from Argentina. I just felt to drop a short message to say Thanks…Thanks a lot for everything, your work with the CM project, your time, your effort and so on and on…

    I’ve found issues like; Camrecording, can’t install Pages Manager, and Facebook app, and can’t see the offline charging animation. But besides that, everything works perfect for me. I’m using a S3mini (i8190)

    Great work, keep it up!!!! ;D

    Hi everyone, thanks for the great job.
    Does someones has problem with wifi? because it disconnects suddenly, and i have to restart from bar state.
    thanks in advance for solutions.

  • Philipp says:

    Great, thank you guys. You took your time, but you did it properly and that’s what’s important. Cam takes Videos perfectly, better than any of the replacment apps I’ve tried. Video quality is really good. No more issues for me any more, no crashes, nothing. This Rom is really good. Again, thanks a lot.

  • Davies Sidney says:

    STK does not work for me in Kenya. It works perfectly fine for the 4.4.4. If you could fix this.

  • Gerus says:

    First at all thank you for fixing the cam bug. But the only thing legt in this Rom , which i miss is OTG support so please try to build it in this rom

  • Kronos says:

    Otg suport please

  • Lennard says:

    Thank you very much for the cam-fix. It works pretty well with the default cam. With the google cam app i get the message that it cannot connect to the cam if i choose video. Another thing is that the mobile reboot after recharge battery to 100% if mobile+internet is enabled (wifi only is ok, no reboot). The reboots happen with my german sim (netzclub) only. With an taiwanese sim card at holiday reboots never happened. I don’t know its a setting in the rom or the sim is the problem.

  • Zarko says:

    Hi at everyone. Someone has wifi problem?
    my wifi disconnect suddenly and i have to restart manually every time.
    thanks in advance.

  • Tyago says:

    Iv’ve been using cwm recovery to flash my recent rom’s but this time in carbon and cm12 it doesnt work. it always says “installation aborted” . do cwm and twrp has something to do with the problem . by the way i haven’t use the twrp recovery yet. and also . those rom’s that have aroma installer (like cm11 and miui probably not from this site’s rom collection) is way easier to flash.

  • JonnyD says:

    Hello everybody!
    I managed to update my phone from the stock Rom to the novafusion-ROM dating from the beginning of January 2016. No I want to update to the most current one in order to also solve that video-bug for me.
    How do I do the update without erasing everyhting on my phone (installed apps, Google-Apps, Settings, ringtones…). I just want to have the latest Version of the OS but keep everything else looking as it is now. Is that possible or do I have to start all over again with every update? What different steps (compared to the instructions when installing CM while being still on the stock ROM) have to be done to achive this?
    Thanks in advance for some clarification 🙂

    …and thanks for all the efforts that are put into this Image 🙂


  • Bruno says:


    How can I access to the Recovery Menu when the combination “VOL+” & “HOME” & “POWER” buttons combo does not work?

    Nova Fusion, thanks for the great work, you’re build is the best. I wanna try this new one but the download section only shows the the last update ID 1740 (20160123), there’s any other place that I can download this new one? or there’s another way to access the dowload page showing all updates?
    thanks in advance.
    best regards, Daniel Santos

  • JonnyD says:

    Hello guys!
    Can anybody tell me how to update from the previous novafusion-Version to this one?
    Last time I updated from the stock Rom to the novafusion rom and by that had to do a factory reset, wipe dalvik Cache before flashing etc. Afterwards I installed all needed apps again and configured everything from scratch.
    What to do if I now want to update not from stock Rom but from an previous Version of the novafusion-CM12.1 (dating from the beginning of January 2016)? Do I only have to flash it again? Do I have to also Flash the Google-apps afterwards? What about my ringtones und Settings? Will they stay or will they be gone again?
    Thanks for some help.

  • Robert says:

    Thank you for the great work! I upgraded yesterday and have so far not had any major issues. Obviously the hardware is not exactly the latest and in consequence there are sometimes delays when opening the menu or applications but I guess we can live with that. Just to ask the question: does anybody know about ways how to improve the CPU performance?

  • Robert says:

    Hello there. I upgraded from 12.0 to 12.1 just yesterday and I noticed that app. for text messaging is missing. Even if I go to Settings – Others – Default SMS app, there is nothing at all`- only a button to close. Any idea please?

  • Matti Korhonen says:

    Hi and many thanks Nova! I have one issue though; Periscope crashes always when I try to broadcast my own stream. Can this problem be fixed somehow? Thanks anyway, you are doing a great job!

  • This made my day! (I have not flashed it yet but I am very hyped :D)

  • achinqs says:

    Great Nova,
    I am very delighted to this news.
    I don’t think I want to look for another smartphone since S3 mini is the best phone for me with its small screen and best performance. You have also supported this phone with new roms.
    Thank you very much nova.

    Your best friend from Indonesia.

  • Carlos RD says:

    Well done!!! I do not have problem with any app. Will you fix 5.0.2 ? On my humble opinion, it takes less memory than 5.1.1. I think some users will love it. Regards. Carlos RD

  • Many games from amazon underground can’t be istalled on this terminal under cyanogenmod 12.1, also, there si some lag when clicking the setting app that dures almost 2 seconds….the same lag with the flash led…….for the rest, is almost really stable.

  • When the phone is off and charging, do not see the animation of the battery charging.

  • Klaus says:

    Some general commends: My system has become really slow – even though I do still have 1.7GB free space. Maybe there’s a kind of memory leak…? Rebooting helped. Looking into this further. What I also noticed: the menu and back buttons keep on being visable for a long time after every screen action, much longer as I was used to see this before. First I though this is “slow system reaction”, but it seems to be just a highlighting, one can directly continue with next actions on the screen.

    Can anybody tell me how to update from the previous novafusion-Version to this one?
    Last time I updated from the stock Rom to the novafusion rom and by that had to do a factory reset, wipe dalvik Cache before flashing etc. Afterwards I installed all needed apps again and configured everything from scratch.
    What to do if I now want to update not from stock Rom but from an previous Version of the novafusion-CM12.1 (dating from the beginning of January 2016)? Do I only have to flash it again? Do I have to also Flash the Google-apps afterwards? What about my ringtones und Settings? Will they stay or will they be gone again?
    Thanks for some help.

  • tsdogs says:

    I have the following problem since 12.1 came out.
    The bluetooth after some time (1 or 2 days) turns of, and the only way to turn it on again is by rebooting the device.
    it always happens when phone is in standby, and I find out that it got deactivated when I turn it on.
    Where do we report bugs? I might try to check the kernel messages or something.

  • Victor says:

    I’m having issues with my mobile data. I can’t acess my 3g network, even after configuring it manually.. The H icon doesnt apper at all

    • where r u from?
      Well, I’m from colombia and I still have the same problem. But I’ve found something wrong inside of “/system/etc/plmn.latam.list” “/system/etc/plmn.operator.list” and “/system/etc/selective-spn-conf.xml” (the records of MCC-MNC are incomplete)

    • mahosapiens says:

      Try reboot your device or just going to Settings->Mobile Data and select 2G again after then select again the 3G.

      If that is’nt helped you maybe isn’t there 3G Signalss.

    • Luis Fdo. says:

      Turn off mobile data connection. wait 1 sec until data connection is off
      Go to netowrk settings and change setting from 2G to 3G
      Turn on mobile data connection again

    • I’ve fixed that… Go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3034811 and download XposedInstaller_3.0_alpha4.apk and xposed-v80-sdk22-arm.zip.
      Install the apk file and don’t open it, reboot and flash the zip with TWRP. Reboot system and open the apk, go to framework and do a soft reboot (This step is very important for make it works without bugs)
      Google NationalRoaming-0.2.apk, download it and install it. Activate it inside modules of xposed and reboot.
      That’s it…
      You must to get root access (Settings, developer options, root access, apps and ADB)

  • Zdeněk says:

  • Maou says:

    Best release so far, I finally have a reason to abandon Cyanogenmod 11.

  • There is a problem in the apps that make VoIP calls. The microphone and the headset does not work. Nor hear nor listen. Just that he brought me back to Cyan 4.4.4. I wonder if will have another update for Cyan 11.0. Thank you for this wonderful build.

  • luisfalonso says:

    Very good release! Thank you very much! Only minor issues:
    – error in clock app, that was solved erasing data on app.
    – 2G/3G automatic switching, solved manually turn off mobile data before switch network type.
    – No stock support to fm radio, solved with spirit radio with root access to adb and apps.
    – No offline charging icon: I couldn’t find any workaround to this.

  • Andri says:

    Get error 504 installing Facebook and other apps. Other error codes come out when installing or upgrading applications.

  • Andri says:

    The operation of the ROM is fast but sometimes collapses, is the black screen and does not respond when the phone has been idle for a while, when used starts to run erratically after a few minutes it normalizes.

  • Torsten says:

    It is always a good idea to clear the cache for all apps after flashing a new ROM. If you fight with unknown errors you should first clear this cache. A good tool for it you can find on https://f-droid.org/, called Cache Cleaner. It can run automatically at every start of your phone, if you set it up.

  • Cannot install this rom. Others get installed. I’m on twrp android-andi
