Again there are zero facts in your post, that proves that TWRP causes bricking. I do not need to know about your education, or cars. Were there no bricks with CWM? I bet there were. And do not tell me that you have been where I have, please. Again you speak without having anything to back you up. How could you know that? I do not thrust your judgment, neither with this nor with that TWRP matter.

Again, I´m not going to bring you facts nor to prove you something. The facts are out there speaking for themeselfes. So I will not search for all this just to quote it here to prove you anything. Belive it or not. Your theoretical and hypothetical arguing doesn´t make this better. And we are not in the kindergarden to play your personal war.

This just as a reminder for all the others. Posted by the dev himself:

  1. Use ClockworkMod Recovery.

  1. His warning is basing on facts without going now into detail.

As I said, you have no arguments. It's no personal war, you just make statements that you can not back up.

I will not do everyday updates, i dont need new features im just fine with stable versions with everything working. So saying latest version you are talking about this wright? --> cm-12.1-20150509-NIGHTLY
Yes, I updated today to that one. It's working fine, but some bugs can be expected - it's nightly build still. You can update OTA every week or so.

Because I´m not willing to aruge with you. What are your arguments? NONE! All you do is bringing for some reason F4k into play. Implying I´m blaming him and arguing with some theroretical statements. There is nothing to blame him when the problem relies in the Recovery itself and he just ported it. But you even are not clever enough to recognize the difference about this.

This are no real arguments just flaming around. Trying to blame me by implying i do so and trying to blame Arco by summing up your statements he is giving false warnings.

Either you bring some facts insteed of just making theoretical statements and flaming here, or stop this. Else the only one whom you are blaming is you yourself.

You even had no clue what I was talking about by saying the problem relies on the mode in which the recovery gets entered and want me to bring details? Sorry. Do your maths first before accusing Arco and me to give false advice.

Can I ask on behalf of all of us that the personal battles be done on private messages. It is wasting lots of space. Thanks for both of your contributions but enough is enough.
Thanks.

And what mode would be that? You got no clue what you are talking about. There is no special mode, it just runs the script by default and restart after script finishes. It flashes the full ROM - downloaded OTA by running updater script, and this is just the same as it would be to run install from GUI and point it to a zip file. Fact is that it is working properly on my phone for a month, each day, and I did not see any corruption, nor do I see why would you blame TWRP for yout UI corruption, or complete brick that some other guy had. You got nothing to say, except that developer recommends CWM and that TWRP corrupts devices somehow. That just makes no sense. And this will be my last take on this, excuse me for being so hard on this, and tiring for other members, but since this ROM is EOL now, I guess this is not that much of a problem.

and you take this to pm and stop filling the thread with a pointless argument. Both recovery have a + & - so deal with it and move on:banghead::banghead:

Last Nightly is broken?

Is it just me or did the last Nightly "cm-12.1-20150513-NIGHTLY-serranoltexx.zip" break the UI?

GPS

Ever since an update from (I think) about 2-3 weeks ago, my GPS seems to be unreliable. Is it just me or are others experiencing that too ?

By unreliable I mean it seems like working on mobile+wifi info only, not the actual gps device. Even if you choose "high accuracy" or "device only", so its accuracy seems limited.

As of now I have the 20150518 NIGHTLY installed (on my GT-I9190), but as I said, its been like this for 2-3 weeks.

TIA

I'm using the 20150518 nightly, and my gps works fine.
In my garden it gives me an error of 8 mtr.

    CM-12.0 Install Guide

    Note: CM for Galaxy S4 Mini is provided with no warranty. You are installing this software at your own risk. You may be violating your warranty.

    Download CM-12.0 and gapps-lp zips and put in /sdcard


    Before you install CM-12.0: Preparation (First three are optional. If you want to start fresh, these can be skipped)

    1. Install AppBak from Market, run it and save a list of all your apps.
    2. Install SMS Backup and Restore from Market, run it and backup your SMS history.
    3. Install Call Logs Backup and Restore from Market, run it and backup your call log history.
    4. Boot into ClockworkMod recovery. Make a full backup. You will need this backup later if you decide to go back to your previous ROM and data.
    WARNING: Many apps will Force Close crash if you restore data from a previous ROM.

    Install

    1. Use ClockworkMod Recovery.

      • Warning: Only use this recovery to flash CM-12.0. Otherwise, you risk bricking your phone!
    2. Wipe data and cache.
    3. Flash cm-12*.zip.
    4. Flash gapps*.zip. You must flash gapps after every upgrade to CM-12.0 since /system is formatted, wiping your previous add-ons.
    5. Reboot phone.
    6. After you setup your Google account, reinstall the three apps from Market in order to restore most of your apps, call log and SMS history.
    7. Warning: Do not restore backup data of system apps!
      • If you restore a bad backup with cached settings in telephony.db in data/data/com.*.*.telephony it can break MMS.
      • It seems that restoring backups can also break Calendar sync.
    Upgrades
    Upgrades from previous versions of CM-12.0 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between CM-12.0 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data.

    Q: How the heck do I get root?
    A: Goto Settings and About Phone. Tap Build number 7 times. Go back and enter
    Developer options. Change Root access to desired method.

    Stop the 'Don't ask for ETA' - nonsense. Cyanogen is not a bunch of volunteers anymore. They are a multi million dollar company. We NOW have all the right in the world to ask for ETA, especially as we as users are part of the assets cyanogen is monetizing! Why if not because of a user base do you think they can convince corporations to sign USD 80 million deals...

    CyanogenMod and Cyanogen Inc is not the same thing. CyanogenMod is still a community driven project, and most contributers and device maintainers works on it for free.

    Arco, will you support CM 12.1? Thanks.
    Eventually yes. Right now there's too many annoying issues in 12.1 that I won't sign it off for nightlies yet.

    Hi all, at first happy new year everybody and specialty to arco & CM Team ! Then thank you to bring our device to the top !

    I would like to know one things please, at the moment I'm on CM12 ROM by F4k. If I want to switch with this official build, I need to wipe all or just do an update as usually ?

    Thank you in advance for your reply !

    Keep your mind and have a great day !

    Best regards, Oijkn.
    Installing without wiping should probably be ok, but no guarantee as I don't know how different those builds are compared to official CM.
    Hey Arco, thank you for the release!
    Only one thing - after F4K's unofficial builds (upgraded without full wipe) I noticed that BLN isn't working anymore.
    Could you please merge the appropriate code to the kernel? As it's already working in another build, I suppose it shouldn't be very complicated.
    Kernel already has support for BLN.
    Hi @arco68 Do we need to use cwm 6.0.5.1 ONLY ?? :confused: I have TWRP 2.7.1.0. My problem with cwm is it does not backup modem and efs..
    Anyway I thank you for cm12. :D

    So when i update the cm12 the clock apk always had problems, so someone gave the idea to use CyanDelta, but when downloads and installs the file, when te phone reboots, the clock apk still doesn't work, how can i fix this?

    COME ON AND WRITE THOSE QUESTIONS TO Q/A THREAD :mad::mad:

    i'm gonna answer you there

    In CM11 there was a nice feature where one could switch between ring, vibrate and silent in the power menu. Any chance of bringing that back?

    if i understand the commit correctly: this could come with the next nightly
