    Great, downloading!!! Thanks Maclaw!!!

    Oliver G96 is working again in this project? Or only is because this project is based on his alpha 5 of CM10 for GT-I8190

  • TDS says:

    Will try it tommorow. Fast work. Thx!

  • josh says:

    I’m on beta1 at the moment how do I update to beta2, do I flash it with or without wiping data and cache, or will it show up in the update bit in settings>about phone ???????

    • Jered Treichel says:

      Just wipe cache, dalvik cache, and /system in recovery. This takes away any old crap from the previous version on your phone. Wiping system removes everything that was on the old release, it doesn’t touch your 3rd party apps, settings, etc that didn’t come in the build. Flash the updated .zip from here and flash GApps which is provided on the download page as well and reboot. It’ll take a bit to boot the first time just give it a bit of patience. Then you’re updated!!

  • bob says:

    chapeau 🙂

  • thehamburgler says:

    This is awesome 😀 Now I can finally use Google Now. Thanks, Maclaw!

  • thehamburgler says:

    For those who are keeping track, Live Wallpaper is now fixed 😀 Microphone is definitely working, as stated from the changelog.

    For those who are on Beta 1, you don’t need to wipe, just flash Beta 2 and GAPPS.

    Awesome work, Maclaw 😀

  • Eraham says:

    This is cool! THank you so much Dude! Btw, may I ask if what’s the Google Apps for?

    • TobiasFP says:

      Google Apps are the main apple apps, like Google Play Store, gmail, etc. Your phone runs fine without, but it will just not be as fun.

  • ReSUrrected says:

    When will be CM 10.1 for Gio?

  • Maik says:

    What’s tearing? Video playback?

  • TDS says:

    APNs still gone :-/ Only enable and disable flight mode restore it.

  • bluestorm says:

    thank you

  • Enrico says:

    Can we expect a flawless fully working cm mod for the mini in the near future? i sure hope so, thanks in advance

  • Alexandre Tea says:

  • Renato Aguiar says:

    Microphone is working fine now 🙂


  • TIbasic says:

    Hello, I don’t speak english, sorry…

    But i have a question : can we hope an official support of the gt-i8190 like the nexus, galaxy S etc… ?

  • This version have more flickerting …… go back beta1 🙁

  • josh says:

    When i try to install a app not in the play store it says I have no room left when I have 2gbs left and its only 5mb

  • TIbasic says:

    But you will take care of our GT-I8190 ? 😀 I just want a CM stable, for daily use, i don’t want the latest version. The official firmware of sgs3 mini is lowing my battery very fast…

  • TDS says:

    Does someone have deep sleep with default interactive governor? Mine didn’t go into deep sleep. Maybe this is the problem for my battery drain reported some days ago (45% in 8 hours over night).

  • gokberk says:

    Hi. Firstly, thank you very much for your working. Can you explain to me the way you work? Which program do you use? For example is it dsixda kitchen ?

  • Marcelo says:

    I’m really anxious for the realese of the stable version of CM 10 Beta … So i came here to adress an issue i found at beta 2: the flickering of screen is not gone…. And it seems that the lower half of screen is the part that is affected … It’s most visible when changing pages or the animation that goes when i choose an app 😉 Other than that i didn’t see other issues =)

  • Jesse Hoppela says:

    flickering/tearing is mentioned as known issue by maclaw…

  • eze says:

    hi maclaw, i have one problem in the beta1 and beta 2 , i cant film videos with app camera :(. thx

  • alamri007 says:

    Thank you for this release, but still the same issue with in-call voice valume, i can barely hear the other person, it’s very low..

  • alex123 says:

    Will this mod work on s3 mini variants like the gt-8190N

  • Andrés Laos says:

    Hey Maclaw, thanks for your awesome job. I just flashed the rom on my I8190L and it works perfectly so far, except for the mobile network. I’ve tried what other people commented like disable/enable flight mode, but it still won’t work, and when I enter the APN settings to modify manually, the screen shows nothing. Oh, and somehow I can’t flash de Gapps properly.



  • Julien Doclot says:

    Wifi direct does not work for me

  • Luke says:

    Works perfectly for my i8190n.
    But facebook contacts sync doesn’t work. How can i fix it?

  • jannick says:

    I am really looking forward to a bug free version of this rom. It looks promising so far. When u fix the tearing and camcorder i will use this rom every day.

  • Julien Doclot says:

    Why can’t i change the internal storage to my micro sd card in the photo app?

  • Daniel Milla says:

    Works perfectly for my i8190l. Brasil
    But facebook contacts sync doesn’t work and lag in native video player. Video works perfect in another app video player.
