This is supposed to be the last build of CM12.1, as whole CM development moved to CM13.0. You should not expect any further builds, support, or CM13.0 from me.

Background:
Due to lack of official maintainer for i9300 device for CyanogenMod. I, together with @Moster2 decided that we will work unofficially on i9300 device tree for CM12, to bring Lollipop goodness to our beloved Galaxy S3.
All builds provided in this thread are UNOFFICIAL, which means that:
- There is no official support for i9300
- There are no OTAs available
- There are no automated "nightglies"

At some point, we definitely will try to make proper pull requests, and maybe even support CM12 officially, but at the moment this project is in WIP - Work-In-Progress state, and many things are still broken/unusable. Until we finish, all builds are unofficial, and proper device support is not finished yet.

At the moment, this project is considered: BETA. All core functions should work, ROM shouldn't have any critical issues, but it's still not ready to mark as stable. However, it should work properly as daily driver.

Please refrain from talking about other kernels than stock. We can't track every kernel and it's problems, hence, you're using other kernels at your own risk. Please don't report bugs while you're using custom kernels.

Build instructions:
Follow CM build instructions for i9300. When doing repo init, don't forget to declare CM-12.1 branch (-b cm-12.1) instead of the default one.

Before "breakfast i9300", you must include our manifest and resync the sources:
Code:
croot
cd .repo
mkdir -p local_manifests
cd local_manifests
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ArchiDroid/manifest/cm-12.1/roomservice.xml
croot
repo sync

Notice: Our manifest already includes proprietary_vendor_samsung, so don't execute ./extract-files.sh. Just repo sync.

Then follow "breakfast i9300" and the rest of the commands in original instructions, while keeping in mind above notice.

If you want to thank me, Moster2, arter, Dhiru, or anybody else for what you received, consider donating, even small amount such as 1$ shows that you appreciate our time and knowledge put into those things. You're using devices worth 500x more than that, giving that money to companies like Samsung who don't care about you and your S3 anymore, consider supporting things you use and like.

That's it folks, hope you enjoyed our CM. As there is nobody from "my" team working on i9300 anymore, eventual hope for M for i9300 should go directly to Dhiru, perhaps also Haxynox guys, if they know what they're doing. I'll probably use my i9300 for a while longer, then finally change it to something else in future. You can still follow me on twitter for updates.

After using for a few days this is my simplified report.
1. package installer FCs when installing or updating from third party (app gets installed)
2. Music volume very low and music app gets killed a few minutes after screen off
3. Settings FCs when changing status bar toggles
4. Very smooth. Alot better than 5.0 (Memory leaks fixes by Google kicks in?)
5. App info graphical error (Package name overlaps with version)

Video decoder working in this ROM???
Yup it is working....
Only problem is when I seek the video to any other position then it already is in, the video gets stuck......(only happens when streaming online though)....

---------- Post added at 12:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:26 PM ----------

Camera stops working frequently due to 'can't to connect to camera' error.....A reboot fixes it though...
And the phone overheats frequently....
Waiting for the next build:):D
Edit:- MTP and mobile hotspot are not working.......

How to install (How it works for me):
- starting with 12.0 weekly 7
- Recovery
- wipe everything (Data/dalvik/chache/system)
- install 12.1
- wipe dalvik
- reboot
- skip all settings then reboot into recovery
- flash 5.1 minimal gapp and reboot
(http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...ition-t2943330) link does not work...search for minimal gapps 5.1
(my Version was : gapps-5.1.x-20150324-minimal-edition-signed.zip)
-installed the bloatware removal script
(https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95916177934545546)
- reboot
--> fast and smooth



Fixed Bugs/Problems
- Messenger crash ( fix with installation of textra --> play store)
- camera does not work (fix with installation of Kamera Zoom FX -->play store)
- Clock alarm crash and packageinstaller crash --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=59702454&postcount=10583
- mobile settings FC of com.android.phone --> use airplane mode, change, then back to online, works

Open bugs/problems
- encryption does not work
( try to solve it with this http://forum.cyanogenmod.org/topic/8...splash-screen/
... does not work, but it avoids to stuck in broken recovery)

Update 7.4.:
- install weekly 5.1 from justarchie with recovery
- wipe dalvik/cache
- reboot
- fine :)
- Thanks again to the devs
-

My test environments:
- GT-I9300
- ROM: 12.1 weekly from justarchie
- Baseband: i9300XXUGNA8
- Kernel: archiekernel 3.0.31 CM
- Recovery: TWRP openrecovery-twrp-2.8.5.0-i9300.tar http://twrp.me/site/update/2015/02/1...-released.html (newer is available)

    Will we ever see Android m on s3?

    I'll use this opportunity to answer this once for a longer while.

    Only because I didn't get new Nexus yet (and probably not going to, disappointed by S810), I do plan at least trying to bring M to i9300.

    HOWEVER, the final effect highly depends on what I'll be able to achieve, how many things will be broken, and if other devs will want to help. There's a high chance that google didn't break that many things compared to LP, but I can't even take a deeper look yet, as CM is not ready yet. There's no point in building AOSP for i9300, too many things will need special treatment and hacks, so I'm patiently waiting till CM will be in buildable state. After that I'll build a first alpha and if at least core functions will work properly (such as display, calls, wi-fi), I'll probably begin releasing alphas until major portion of them will get fixed.

    Again, I'd like to remind you that i9300 is officially DEAD, we have blobs dated at Android 4.3 JB, which are ALREADY NOT COMPATIBLE, which you probably noticed of not working MMSes. This is not going to get any better, this is actually going to get only worse, so the question is how worse it will become, as this will directly affect things and work that need to be done to get things working. I'm not interested in wondering how samsung's black box works as I did in the past, as I lost my patience for crapxynos already. I'm just going to take a look, perhaps do something that will work, try to fix things that did break, if I succeed, cool, if not, sorry, M for i9300 is not going to happen, at least from me.

    Currently I'm still waiting for CM to fix up their things for CM13 before I ever start doing something, as sources are in non-buildable state for now. I'll most likely post updates on twitter regarding this, so if you're not following me yet, it may be wise to consider doing so.

    This is the first and the last post regarding Android M for i9300 from me, as we're in CM12.1 thread and it's simply offtopic. CM13 is unrelated to this, so it's not a right place to post about it. Any updates regarding this will be only on my twitter, if I succeed, new thread will be created.
