Cool rom, but visiting XDA or other sites with normal browser lags like the hell, system is really fast, is not slowly.

Many thanks for this most recent cm11 rom simokb1996!

Question, - which milestone has this release? Is it at same M12 level as midzan21's last cm11 rom? Is the "low RAM feature" of Android 4.4 KitKat enabled in this cm11 build here?

because the m12 is the final release of cm11
low ram feature is enabled in this version

Hi QGM, - the following workaround may help to reduce / fix these browser lags:

1) Type or paste chrome://flags in the URL bar in Chrome for Android
2) Find the Maximum tiles for interest area (#max-tiles-for-interest-area ) flag in the list
3) From the dropdown, change from Default (value) to 256 (note, original source says 512 but that is most likely to high for our Mini 2 phone)
4) Tap on the Relaunch Now button to commit the change.

I don't know if this fix is really designed for Android 4.4 & cm11, - you will see. (I will try this when I get my test GT-S6500 phone.)

Yes, - I forget. Google replaced in KitKat stock AOSP Browser rendering engine with Chromium based WebView. And cm11 still have (also) their own browser...

Well, the problem of these lags are most likely RAM related, - I don't know where to set this value in AOSP / cyanogen browser, sorry.

simokb1996 may help. ;):)

i will build a cm11 with old webview (webkit)
and for nfc i will look in s6310N it has nfc support if mini2 can handle it
That would be great, - webview is much more "lightweight" then heavy & fat Google chrome. So any other browser is therefore much more practical for our S6500.

Regarding NFC, - the S6310N has complete different SoC design, - so no Snapdragon S1 MSM7227A. :( Unfortunately I also found no custom rom, no Cyanogenmod. All normal S6310 custom roms are incompatible. Only a modified stock android 4.1.2 rom exist: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-young/development/rom-glassrom-n-installer-t2882891

You have s6500 or s6500d
Because this version is just for s6500

Sent from my GT-S6500 using XDA Free mobile app
s6500 also CWM 6.0.5.1 is very unstable on my phone. Hardly gets into recovery. Also has blank black screen sometimes and I have to reboot it till it gets working. Anyways I dunno why It stucks in Samsung logo and after few secs reboots . Can there be a reason that I'm updating directly from gingerbread 2.3.6? should I update it to jelly bean and try again? I dunno Im not expert sorry. As I couldn't believe something making in 2016 for that old device... lol.
