Hi guys :)

I decided to discontinue my work on A3, I tried to fix this sound card issue since months with many attempts but it never worked. Remember that I never had the device in my hands.

I am pretty sure new developers will continue to develop new ROMs for this device.

Thank you to everybody who helped me and supported me since all this months, I was very happy to port CM to this device.

I will probably see you again in another XDA device forum! :)

PS: This thread will be closed by me tomorrow.

It will be fine if someone could make a full A3 simulator for PC. Just make a VirtualMachine, copy the A3 kernel, firmware etc. make a physical buttons, recovery, download mode, odin simulator and give it to you. That way any developer can make ROM for any phone he doesn't have. I imagine to make this but my coding isn't too well :p

Yes it would be awesome but it will need a lot of time to create this :p

    • Steps for a Clean Install:
    1) Put the .zip file in Internal or External Storage.

    3) Wipe Data, Cache, Dalvik Cache and format /System
    4) Install the ROM.
    5) After first reboot, the device may hang on starting apps, so press Vol-, home button and power button and reboot to Recovery then flash this boot.img:
    6) Reboot again and Enjoy!
    Note: you need to flash the boot.img at every reboot. I didn't find why this issue happen yet.

    Hi all!
    I uploaded a new build for A3F/H/M which fixes some minor bugs. For other major bugs like Camera distorsion, it will come on a next build.

    The latest release is only for non-FU variants, but a new version for it will be released soon :D

    I am working hard these days to make CM13 working fine on all variants. I decided to make two separate builds, one for non-FU variants and another only for A300FU (available soon)

    Hi all!
    I have some announcements to do:

    - From now, I will not maintain CM13 builds for A300F/H/G/M anymore. Now it's @vl_w who will do that. This is better for developement as he has the device on his hands and can test directly. Also note that he will open a new thread probably tomorrow or in next days. :good:

    Why do I not maintain builds for A300F/H/G/M anymore?
    Don't worry!
    I will now work only on A300FU but still on this thread.
    When the new thread by @vl_w will be created, I ask to all non-FU variants owners to post their questions etc... on this new thread. I will also add the link to this new thread on the first post when it is created.

    I am now working only on A300FU, to concentrate my efforts on only one variant. Making separate builds is better in this case, because there's too much differences between F/H variants and FU (RAM, kernel blobs, etc...).
    Now we also have 6.0.1 kernel source which helps me a lot. I will make my first CM release for A300FU soon on this thread. :)

    With all of that, everyone can enjoy CM on his variant :D

    PS: Stay tuned, CM14 will also come soon! ;)

    Wifi and camera problem solved? :D
    No but it should be easy to fix since the ROM boots fine. For some reasons it doesn't recognize the sound card and that prevents the system to boot. I don't really know how to fix it. Even adding some symlinks didn't helped, I will try to figure this out tonight. :)
