Default [Q] ? CyanogenMod 11.0 or DModV6 ?

hey guys,

so i'm currently on DModV6 and am wondering if there are benefits of switching to CyanogenMod 11.0 ?
Although DModV6 greatly improved gaming lag on my device, it still exists So my question is does CyanogenMod 11.0 completely remove gaming (and other) lags on my galaxy s3 mini ? Thanks in advance for sharing your experience with these two custom roms Cheers

Hi @koragg97. I suggest you to try CM 11.0. You'll gain a lot of benefits if you're into games. Last week I missed the in-out indicator of data connenection on Samsung stock ROM, so I searched the forum and found DModV6 which is a ROM based on stock. I decided to flash it. After I used it for an hour, tried many HD games and apps, it gave me lags in games and entering to apps is a little slow than CM 11.0 so I had to go back to CM 11.0. Anyway CM 11.0 is not stable yet, you might face some problem like black screen in some camera apps, wierd sound in Twitter when pulling down to refresh and the light on touch key won't go off when it's got notifications while the screen is off. However it gives a very good experience for playing games rather than DModV6 because I don't get any lags while playing games. Try it yourself to know more

Don't think so.. I think the kernel doesn't have radio option and for disabling the softkeys on notifications there is an app called BLN Control

Yes, it works. But you have to install an app called Spirit FM. Once you've installed it, to make it work you have to go to Settings/Audio/Method and there choose Galaxy S3/Note/S2_ICS. Good luck!

The ROM doesn't come with a built-in offline radio. Don't worry, you can install Spirit FM
