Hello!

My name is Macław, and with my friend, @marcin1147 we're we are a NovaFusion team.

Our site: http://novafusion.pl/
Our FB: http://fb.com/AndroidNovaFusion

We're team of good friends, with huge experience in Android Developments.

Our history has began in 2011 year when I decided to start porting Ice Cream Sandwich to my brand new Galaxy Gio. It wasn't easy - we had no sources, no any other ROM than CM7 and no developers.

Few days later some guy wrote to me on XDA. It was Marcin - he wanted to join me.

After weeks of hard work we've successfully ported CM9.0 (ICS) to Gio. After that we've founded GalaxyICS (later renamed to MaclawStudio, and then to NovaFusion). team. Just after first Gio release, due to lots of requests, we've published port of our work to Ace and it was first functional ICS for Ace also.

We had also episode with Galaxy Mini, but due to personal issues we've closed Mini's development quickly.

In 2013 we decided to go on and start new era - we've switched to Galaxy S3 Mini and we've ported a lot of different ROMs for it, basing on Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3.

We were first developers who ported KitKat to any of Samsung devices. Also we have only one fully working KitKat for Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.

In free time I also provide KitKat ROMs for Ace II and S Advance.

Now it's time to make another step.

WE DECIDED TO BECOME A PART OF GALAXY CORE COMMUNITY!

We want to make the best ROMs for this device.


S3 Mini, Ace II & S Advance users - don't worry. We don't leave you

Keep in mind that we don't have Galaxy Cores yet xD
In the following week we'll buy two, one for me and the second one for Macław.

To this time, you have to help us to build an awesome community (just like we have on different forums, like S3 Mini), we need a lot of people here!

4.4.3 or even 4.5 (after official announcment ofc)

We just need some time. The first step is to port Android 4.1.2 based CyanogenMod 10 and fix all (or the most) bugs. Then we can proceed to porting our ROM to 4.2 (or even directly 4.3), and then to KitKat

But please don't ask for ETA. We just don't know how hard (or easy ) will it be. We don't have the device yet.

Actually abkur had built one cm build. It booted but had many bugs. You guys can start to work on it. I guess it would help.

They are almost not working, only booting and you call it "some bugs" ?
