RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 13.0

First dev preview release (20160311) of CM13.0 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 CM12.1!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.


  • First release

There is no features/issues list right now – mostly everything doesn’t work – it is only preview!

We don’t want to apply parts of code from 5.1 and below versions of Android just to boot it – we do it way it supposed to be – and we finally booted it natively and correctly.

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.

    Thanks nova 😀

  • Tom says:

    Amazing work guys. Cant thank you enough.

  • Me dada says:

    Hey can i port this to gt-i9070? Thanks!

  • Gerus says:

    Maybe this is a cool rom. But I think that you should first finish the cm 12.1, and it isn’t finished until there is OTG support!
    But great work guys I’m impressed^^

  • Drom1X says:

    is written “for flashing lollipop”. It would be “for flashing Marshmellow”

  • Diego says:

    Hold on guys. Nova is doing a great job. But it might take some time to be stable.

  • Does anyone know when the stable version was released will be possible to download it over the air (because I could never change the version of Cyanogen ROMs over the air updates), or have to download right here on the site NOVAFUSION?

  • Oz Mendez says:

    I do not work, sticks in the boot logo and hence does not happen.

  • Elvitek says:

    Relase CM 12.1 without bug

  • Jose says:

    Thanks nova

  • EverGreen says:

    Nova Team. Not plans for new release of CM13.0?
