Phone [Q] Advice about what version of CM10/11 to install

Hi XDA'ers,

I've just received my shiny new S4 mini and I've subjected myself to an hour of the new touchwiz. Lets say I'm ready to move back to Cyanogenmod. What I'm after from you guys is advice about which version of CM I should install for maximum compatibility. I've noticed that there is a bug list for KK which doesn't seem to be changing much. Is CM10.x better as a daily driver as I tend to use most, if not all functions whilst I'm out and about.

Looking forward to any helpful replies

I've used cm11 and KK roms since they were released, i personally find them really stable and good for a daily driver. different strokes for different folks though

Cheers dude, I installed the KK serranto last night and so far so good. Apart from camerra zoom and a little glitch with the headset (from everything I've managed to test so far) which was resolved by unplugging and replugging to solve, its been a good experrience so far.

Same here! CM11 as my daily driver. Camera zoom is generally a bad idea though because phones like this do not have a mechanical zoom so any zooming you do is actually just cropping that part of the image and then enlarging to fit your screen's viewport. Similar to taking the picture then zooming in.

Not something which can be fixed by any software updates essentially

Hi, I tried to use cm11. Everything was perfect, except extremely battery drain. I think my I9190 does not enter deep sleep mode. How can I fix that?

Use a custom kernel and BatterBatteryState to check what keeps the phone awake.
