    I use s3 mini and maclaw’s cm11 with twrp. But now i cannot do anything with my phone. Cant delete any file, cant setup or remove any program, cant setup any cwm. Like deepfreeze software when i reboot system all changes gone.
    i try odin with 2-3 different roms. i says pass but when i reboot nothing changes. Again cyanogenmod 11 starts. I delete a file from internal sd card, everything seems ok, but when i reboot that file is here, nothing happens to that file, no delete. I remove a program, everything is ok but when i reboot nothing happens to that program.
    what can i do? i think nand is in write protected state, how to unlock nand?
    Sorry my english

    Hello, thank you for your fine and quick responce and develpment fixes!

    I personally have a problem that remains after your last update. This is the one during a phone call when I put the phone to speaker mode. The speaker volume is very low even if the volume control is set to its higher level. The solution is to play back and forth with the slider and then everything comes back to normal until the next phone call and so on…

    Please, have a look at this as soon as possible. Thank you again!

    Thank you very much. Looks fine so far, one small thing, the cLock widget now properly opens the weather dialog when clicking on the line with the info. But that also happens on the lock screen, which is inconvenient.

  • FrankBR says:

    Some problems:
    My dial get stuck in a random number with a continuous sound. I have to turn off and on to exit the locked screen. Also some numbers into the calculator does not respond to touch, and is stuck in a number that i even touched.

  • EThaNol says:

    there is a big issues with the battery, over night my cell phone was blank.

    • FrankBR says:

      Yes i can confirm that. When i unplug the phone, the battery loses 3% immediately. Usually the battery of my phone loses that percentage overnight. Please fix that.

      Thank you.

  • Siddin Jose says:

    Hi, thanks for the effort you are making.

    I notice that even a major error continues to appear. When watching a video on Youtube app and notification (messages, emails, etc..) Occurs, the video stops and this is disabled, therefore it must be restarted, which is very annoying.

    Thanks for your attention!

  • FrankBR says:

    The video HD with wmv extension continues with the same problems as the previous ROMs: Out of sync, sound cuts. In the stock rom the same video plays smoothly.
