Exclamation How to: Installation and Bug Reporting
Disclaimer (read it before installing the ROM for the first time):


Your warranty is now void.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.

Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it!
You are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh.

Regarding the compatibility with mods or apps, these builds are as compatibile as official CyanogenMod nightly builds.

Installing CyanogenMod 13 on your Galaxy S III:

  • Copy CyanogenMod 13 zip and a light GApps package of your choosing to your Internal or External SD card;
  • Make sure you are using latest version of a MarshMallow compatible recovery;
  • Boot into recovery;
  • Flash CM 13 zip;
  • Flash GApps package;
  • If you're coming from another non-CyanogenMod ROM do a Data Wipe / Factory Reset (otherwise your device will be stuck at boot);
  • Reboot.

Posting Bug Reports (comply these requisites is mandatory, otherwise your report won't be considered):

  1. Use the newly added Bug Reports tab;
  2. I always test my builds before releasing them and use the latest build as daily ROM for my devices: do not claim it doesn't boot or it gives you force close loops (if this is your case it's either a corrupted download or your phone needs a full wipe);
  3. Clearly state which build are you using (for reporting a bug it needs to be the latest);
  4. Clearly state that you're using the kernel that comes with the build and not a modded one (if you're experiencing issues using a modded kernel, you should refer to the kernel's developer thread);
  5. Clearly state which mods are you using (e.g. Xposed Framework): try to remove the mod and see if the bug is still there;
  6. Clearly state which runtime are you using (e.g. Dalvik or ART); if you're using ART try to switch to Dalvik and see if the bug is still there;
  7. In addition before posting bug reports, test if your bug is also present in the same day's official CyanogenMod nightly; if it is present there, wait until the CyanogenMod Team fixes it or report directly to them;
  8. As a small courtesy, please don't report bugs that can easily be fixed with well known patches (e.g. CWM zips);
  9. GApps related crashes should be reported to GApps package maintainer (at least at first).

Info 2 F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions)
Uff, our device is slow and Screen Mirroring is laggy, can you fix this?

Nope, our device is old and OEM support lacks.
You shouldn't complain about the overall performance or about the performance of some specific features (e.g. Screen Mirroring through ChromeCast).

Your latest build isn't working at all, can you fix it?

I personally test every build before releasing it, so the device will always be usable.
If you experience weird issues or something that's a showstopper for you, you should consider switching to CyanogenMod's official builds, or to another ROM: your device or setup may be incompatible with my builds.

Where can I find CyanogenMod's official builds?

If you're looking for something common or some common infos, you should definitely use xda search engine or Google.

May you give me some informations about your builds?

All the infos about my builds (e.g. technical compilation infos, features and installation guide) are in the first three posts: you should definitely read them before posting.

I saw this cool feature on another ROM, can you include it in your builds?

Nope, sorry, I'm not taking Feature Requests (see that the correspondent tab is missing from OP): you should make Feature Requests to CyanogenMod Team in the ways you prefer.
In addition, you can look for some Xposed Module, maybe you'll find one that can add to my builds what you're looking for.

A new "SnapShot" build is out! When you'll compile a build based on it?

Never, sorry. My builds are compiled from the nightly branch. The "SnapShot" builds are compiled from a dedicated branch; "SnapShot" releases doesn't influence in any way my builds.

I need some technical explanation about the tools you're using, may you provide them?

What is Toolchain?


In software, a toolchain is the set of programming tools that are used to create a product (typically another computer program or system of programs). The tools may be used in a chain, so that the output of each tool becomes the input for the next, but the term is used widely to refer to any set of linked development tools.
A simple software development toolchain consists of a compiler and linker to transform the source code into an executable program, libraries to provide interfaces to the operating system, and a debugger. A complex product such as a video game needs tools for preparing sound effects, music, textures, 3-dimensional models, and animations, and further tools for combining these resources into the finished product.


What is SaberMod?


SaberMod is a AOSP based ROM with some extra features added in and mostly from CyanogenMod. SaberMod started out pure AOSP when android 4.2.1 launched. Originally it was pure AOSP with a few extra features I ported over from CyanogeMod and linaro optimizations. Then I rebased everything off of rasbeanjelly because I liked many features found in rasbean. Since then I've modified a lot of the code so not much of it is rasbeanjelly based anymore. But you will still find some commonly used features found in rasbeanjelly. SaberMod is not a rasbeanjelly or CM clone, or KANG. Custom kernels are included for certain devices when available. These are personal builds we make for ourselves and originally became very popular in the nexus 7 forums. Features are very rarely added, and are built to SaberMod's team members liking. Currently there are two members of SaberMod working on this project. Myself and @jarjar124. Please understand our time is limited and we are only two people who have lives, and do not have 25-50 members like CyanogenMod to add things. And our goal is not to add a bunch of features that bloat the system of the ROM.


What is Linaro?


Linaro is the place where engineers from the world's leading technology companies define the future of Linux on ARM. The company is a not-for-profit engineering organization with over 120 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including the GCC toolchain, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, graphics and multimedia interfaces.
