    is there a way to fix the problem with too many sdcard folders? i have in storage a sdcard0 folder which is android data, sdcard1 with microSD data and emulated one which inside there is a folder called “0” and another called legacy and both have android data but apps dont reconize the path to it. id like the folders as from stock ROM

    OMG! You actually listened to me about the voice scratching issue ! THANKS A LOT MACLAW ! MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

  • Rom says:

    Yesssss! Yehuuu πŸ˜€ maclaw best.

  • Fausto says:

    How do i do “wipe dalvik”. Sorry for the stupid question πŸ™

  • I solved it in a really radical way: Made a backup of my entire Storage, placed my CM11 and gapps copies in the external SD, Then made a clean install and formatted both system and internal SD card (do not wipe your ext SD, of course). Then I made a clean install of the ROM.

    Notice that, at least in ES Explorer there will be some shortcuts to “legacy” storage. The reason for it is that from Android 4.2 ahead you can have multiple users in the same device, so when you update from previous versions your user files, included the emulated internal SD card, will be moved to a “0” folder, with the next user taking the “1” folder and so on. In case you install “legacy” apps (previous to 4.2) those shortcuts are created as a reference so there will be no unexpected errors due to the new location of files…

    I did what I proposed you up there and the infamous “0” folder is gone, but the “shortcuts” are still gonna be there, however, you still have only ONE real internal SD, the others take no space.

  • Joshi says:

    i have not tested this version yet but i guess “cpu deep sleep”-feature causing this issue because it stops some processes in standby-mode.

  • Piero Ulloa says:

    The rom doesn’t wipe dalvik by itself? Always when installing new nightly appears Android is updating (rebuilding dalvik cache, etc)

  • andrea says:

    ohhhh yes! in download πŸ™‚
    thanks maclaw team

  • Stefan says:

    Launcher: Trebuchet and new “Google Now…” is that true?!?

  • martin says:

  • antovski says:

    Great work! I just have one question. Should we use Dalvik or Art? Thanks

  • Piero Ulloa says:

    Hey, i think sound fix broke compatibility with Clash of Clans

  • Pichucu says:

  • ibrahim farajat says:

    Thanks man you’re the best ..

  • Andhy says:

    Thanks for daily update….
    Keep moving forward

  • Alan says:

    Should I perform the dalvik wipe before or after installation?

  • boubicou says:

    I have a question: Should i download it, or should i wait for the next updates ?? cause I don’t know if it’s good enough :s

    • helpful says:

      That’s more of a philosophical question isn’t it?
      I think you should download it and also wait for the next updates,
      because it’s always good enough but it keeps getting better.

  • frankdd89 says:

    Yesterday’s firmware were much faster on my i8190N

  • Tacho says:

    Does anyone else have sound problems with Whatsapp?

  • ABC123 says:

    Hey Maclaw,
    I think, there is a big problem, with the system sounds… If iΒ΄ll chose them (ringtone) there sounds every time (no matter which I select) the ringtone, which was chosen before.

    And if iΒ΄ll change the notification sound there sounds allways my ringtone, i canΒ΄t select any one… But if I get some notificatin the right sounds :/

    The same problem i have, if the notification comes, -> that my accu is empty I ownly can say great Job Maclaw

  • mike360 says:

  • mike360 says:

  • necao says:

    Ufff, battery drain is too fast in this release

  • Amazing speed. By far the best rom for the S3 Mini !

  • Hi Maclaw and team… thanks for the great work… could you please put a notification number when device is fully charged? when is charging in off, of course. Wish you could.

  • Great perfomance and incredible battery… It’s really Amazing. If I could tell anything it just the fact the sound effects in the apps are a little low… just that.

  • denny says:

    Problem watch movie in 720p

  • Wow… There is a lock sound now… Perfect. I think I’m gonna stay in this release untill a better and stable one. System Still low… but great news.

  • Hi maclaw,

    can you add OTG USB feature in CM11 kitkat ?

    can you work on it ?

    it would be a great addition to your rom ?

    anyways, thanks for updating your work always..

    Cool Rom but there is an issue with some video streaming apps like rtlnow or zattoo. There is no video. Cause is the need of the SELinux (temporary disabled) part.
    Are u able to enable this again? If needet?
