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, 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. You can also try this app, it will solve your problem permanently, for sure.

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: I want to try other kernel, but I can't because of F2FS. What can I do?
A: Take a look here & here.

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, here & here.

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:D

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 :p

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

thanks for these awesome FAQs!

just a question though. Do any of you know how to disable that battery notification and sound on panda rom CM10.2?

Just a follow up question. is there a way that BLN will not stop led on keys when notification is not read yet?

Thank you. For disable low battery sound & notf. I use this xposed module. Regarding the BLN, better you read the description on playstore.

I think bln only works on 3rd party sms apps, not work with cm sms built-in app. BTW, keeping the lights on till the sms is reading only sucks your battery:)

    I'd spent the entire day doing searches on how to root my phone, got all sorts of information in my brain and some of the questions were more confirmatory and leading to to 3&4. My phone isn't in English and I'm not that familiar with the android vocabulary so sometimes I just can't think of specific search terms and honestly just can't find anything. Being tired doesn't help :) Thanks for your help though! Now I've got a fresher brain so lets see if I can now find what I'm looking for a bit easier.

    P.S. it's short for "how the app was before switching to cyanogenmod" ;)
    I think you are still new you will get habituated with this stuff and if u want to go to cm rom backup with twrp/cwm (whatever) so even if u r stuck at something, u can easily restore and ive got a trick for you
    1. get the android folder inside sd card to save data and all apks (in my sense manual method is safe method )
    2. use this app (i know you will like it) and
    3. swipe left in the app and you will see user app tab
    4. in user app there will be your installed apps in apks

    any questions ??? just pm me and get used to search bars

    Hi, is it possible to remove gapps completely without doing a full wipe? I'm using maclaws latest cm 10.2 with his gapps.
    Wanna try if NOGAAPS work with my s3mini. Did anybody tried this already on our device?
    Thanks

    You can delete '70-gapps.sh' at system/addon.d and flash cm again. So gapps will not be kept.

    Have fun!
