RELEASE for S3 Mini
CyanogenMod 10.2

First release (20131011) of CM10.2 for S3 Mini is available!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is first preview release, freaky unstable and buggy! Do full backup of current ROM before flashing this one!

If you want to say us thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free 😉

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

If you’re updating from older CM10.1/10.2 version or migrating from Oliver’s CM10.1, you don’t have to perform a wipe!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.
