Info 2 ★[FAQ][CM10.1/10.2/11][Galaxy S III Mini][GT-I8190]★

Hi people,
I hope this can help those who ask some common questions in all threads or just don't read the OP or the OP hasn't Q&A, so let's start.

Q: How to install/update Cyanogenmod roms?
A: Follow this tutorial.

Q: Where can I find Gapps?
A: Here, here or here. For light gapps go here.

Q: How to enable the developer options?
A: Settings>About phone> click 7 times on build number.

Q: How to enable advanced reboot?
A: Go to: System settings->Developer options->Advanced reboot.

Q: Advanced reboot doesn't work for me. Any solution?
A: Yes, take a look here (3 Button Combo).

Q: Where can I find the latest baseband for I8190, I8190N or I8190L?
A: Here.

Q: After installing CM rom I have no signal. Any solution?
A: Here (Pit file & Modem folder).

Q: What is the Panda application (CM10.2)?
A: It's for saving battery, it disable one core & sets the governor to ondemand.

Q: I have the "1Ghz bug", how to fix it?
A: Reboot the device with wifi off. If for some reason still doesn't work change the governor & the scheduler to Pegasusq + Sio or Deadline.

Q: How to enable softkeys haptic feedback?
A: Softkeys haptic feedback is disabled by default. You need to follow this tutorial to enable it.

Q: How to enable automatic brightness?
A: Download this app.

Q: After install CM11 my clock froze! Any solution?
A: Uninstall Lockclock.apk from system apps or try that:
- Keep the phone plugged on charger/pc
- Keep mobile data (3G/2G) on
- Keep wifi on

Q: How to disable the buttons backlight?
A: Go to system settings-buttons-backlight & uncheck "Illuminate buttons".
If don't work for you, download BLN control from Google Play Store, here.

Q: I installed CM10.1/CM10.2/CM11 rom but I can't find radio fm app. Any solution?
A: Yes. Download Spirit FM Free from here.
Do that only if it doesn't work with the default settings:
1 - If you are in Europe: Settings->Band->World... (Anyone).
2 - Settings->Audio->Method->Galaxy S3/Note/S2_ICS.

Q: How to enable the pie controls & navigation buttons?
A: First you need a file explorer, then add this line qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 to /system/build.prop & reboot the phone to activate the on screen buttons (Navigation Bar). Then go to Settings>System>Power menu>Expanded desktop & activate it & then you will see pie control in the Settings>System menu.

Q: How to keep Xposed Framework installed after update the rom?
A: Read this.

Q: Where can I find amazing themes for TWRP recovery?
A: Here, enjoy

Q: How can I help the development of any ROM?
A: Not with, "+1", "FC", "me too", "same bug here", blablabla. These comments are USELESS.

Q: So, how can I really help?
A: Simple. Remember doing this you're helping the developer & yourself, you're intelligent, so you understand what I'm saying, right!?!

Do that in the right ROM thread:

Phone model:
Baseband version:
ROM version:
Did you?
wipe:
restore with titanium backup:
reboot after having the issue:
Are you using?
a task killer:
the kernel (boot.img) in the zip or other:
Settings/Performance settings (other than default):
What steps will reproduce the problem?
But the most important thing is this: attach a LOGCAT of the problem.

Q: Ok nice, but I’m noob & I don’t know how to LOGCAT, where can I learn?
A: Here, here or stop being lazy & search in XDA forums.

Battery Saving Tips: Here or you can take a look here & put an end to the problems with the battery

Anytime! Imho, you've provided useful info which is worth to know if you're an owner of a custom I8190.

I've totally failed the topic at the 1st place here, but I've checked out this hidden menu after I've flashed Maclaw's CM 10.2 and it's really a must have option. Now I remember it again!

..but what I didn't knew was that in here, in dev options existed that function which I was always seeking for; the advanced reboot, which lets you decide what to boot. For example, the recovery.

This is a really nice thing to use on CM. It can save you a bit of time and your 3 button combo fingerprints

I would add this 'advanced reboot/boot to recovery' thingy to the FAQ. I find it interesting and useful
