    Bugs:
    – In offline charging does not turn on

    Please do:
    – automatic update of your CM

    – automatic brightness support (it could work like “lux auto brightness” … makes screenshots front of the camera and compensates for light.)

    – NFC support

    – Move apps to sd

    Thanks very much :)

    My Phone is still turning off with many games and sometimes when it’s charging. Anybody has the same problem? Could you help me please? :(

  • There is a situation with GPS… even now that GPS and network geoposition works, the system don’t save the permissions you already gave to it. Maps need permisson everytime I go to the app and, once I’m inside the app, I need to turn off and on again the GPS for the app to ask permisson, otherwise it never locate the place where I am. This situation makes impossible for the GPS to work in ‘battery saving mode’ on any app.

  • Hasseos says:

    i user Root explorer so look through my files and i found out that there are lots of partitions. There is a folder called sdcard0 which has internal storage stuff, sdcard1 which is external SD card and another one called emulated and inside there are two folders, one called 0 which again has internal storage stuff and another one called legacy that has the same things. ANY HELP?

  • Arturo Crespi says:

    Dear Maclaw and team: I have been reading about kernels, and i’ve found out that “ST Ericsson” freed the source of our chipset; if this is correct, i guess you will maybe give us a new and better kernel. Am i right?? Is this the great surprise??

  • Jossh says:

    The bluetooth is faster, but bluetooth keyboards are still not supported ?

    Thank you to make your rom everyday better !

  • grifter190 says:

    I cant get wifi direct to work. and I also cannot change the name of the phone. Wifi Direct just does nothing, click on the link, and nothing. Change the name, I go through the process, and click ok, and it goes back to the old name. Please help?

    God Damn!
    I’m happy and angry to you Mac!!!
    I’m happy because in Camera i find option to choose between Internal and Sd Card to save pictures.
    I’m angry, because you forget to write that important information! ;)
    So, thx so much MAN!! And have nice a night :))

  • I’ve noticed that the clock freeze appears after some days without update the rom, but when i wiped cache + dalvik it fixed xD
    Anyways before install a new update (i do it like just once a week por so) i allways wipe cache+system+dalvik+data(This won’t delete your pictures or anything con your sdcard0 folder) , and then restore apps, messages, userdictionary and system configurations i saved with Titanium Backup and everything works great :)
    Also i use ondemand+sio and battery it’s great. On the nights i disable sync, WiFi and data and it justo consumes like 2 or 3 %… And with abyssplug at least for me the 1ghz bug appears more often. Hope this helps anyone

  • Dayron says:

    Please correct the data is very slow with apps like FB, TWITTER AND BBM.

  • need4steer says:

    Can’t play wmv or wma files without a player – what causes the gallery not to show these videos and songs, and to the sound settings not to show these files.

  • maxim says:

  • kaykay says:

    Hey Maclaw Team, thanks a lot for your efforts :)

    I know you guys like challenges, so I would like to see a port of Replicant 4.2 (www.replicant.us) to this device.

    Keep rocking!

    Am I the only one still having trouble with EMail? It shuts down immediately when I try to open and I also get an error that Exchange has stopped.

  • camweb01 says:

    The camera preview in the apps is viewing bad… Sorry for my horrible English…

  • hasseos says:

    Why when i install cyanogenmod, it creates like 2 copies of andrpid storage system. So i got sdcard1 which is my microSD, sdcard0 where all apps info is and another one called emulated and inside of it there is an 0 folder which has the same files as sdcard0 and another one called legacy which again has the same files. I can use some apps cause they don’t find the path to their content and can’t use foldermount cause it cant access microSD. Very fast ROM but crappy

  • Hi … I see at your google apps download page for s3mini, there are full, mini, micro and aroma. could you please let me know what the diff both of them.

  • Carlo says:

    Not just for fun!
    Dear Mac Law Team, I’m a “middle age” architect and I use my s3mini 70% for work and 30% for fun. I understand NOTHING about these stuffs but I installed your ROM following your clear instructions. Now my phone is brand new, fast and reactive and I do not need to buy a new one.
    I noticed the camera works much better than the stock one and it’s very important in my job!
    Just as an information I use NOVA launcher, i’m used to it and it works very well with your ROM
    Thanks a lot.

  • need4steer says:

    I have this issues with this version:
    – “trebuchet has stopped working” on the first boot after a fresh install
    – The location settings aren’t saved
    – can’t play wmv or wma files
    – The data connection is extremely slow

  • 75seconds4 says:

    weird noise comes whenever i play flappy birds and tap the screen. Wifi direct doesnt work at all and battery life is very bad. I cant seem to turn off back light on the capacitive buttons even when i change the buttons

  • Alexandre says:

    The clock issue is back. The alarm is not working due to clock freeze.

  • Stefan says:

    There is still the problem that stops the mobile data connection often. Otherwise, I think that this ROM in daily use is going well. ;-)

    I’ll stay tuned and I am convinced that CM 11 one day will run perfectly.

    Thanks to Maclaw and his team
