To cut a long story short, GAPPS basically provides you with the sync between your device and google services, which otherwise wont be readily available on custom rom running devices.

Resurrecting an old thread.. but see http://forum.cyanogenmod.org/topic/74526-how-do-i-update-cyanogenmod/ which says you don't need to do factory reset/wipe cache etc....

You can't use nightlies daily, you can only use them at night. (<- That is a joke, by the way.) Nightlies are the most unstable builds of CyanogenMod, but the number of bugs depends on the device. Typically, there are few bugs, as they still test the ROMs, but you will probably encounter (a few) more bugs than in a stable build. Most people will be able ...

Back when I had a Samsung Galaxy Ace and wanted to use CyanogenMod on it, it almost always had a Nightly build. Encountered a few bugs, but not major ones. Granted this is a different phone and CM version, point is you have to know which features/functionalities are working and not based on the wiki/release notes provided. Also which bugs are present. You ...

Is it possible that google restores faulty contacts each time you did a factory reset? deactivate google sync for contacts and delete data for contacts and contact storage. This will delete all your contacts so make a backup! (sorry I meant to write this in the comments section... now I don't know how to delete this.)

I gave the install script a look and it seems that it does not check for the bootloader version. It does install or patch the bootloader, and hence no check needed.

The Galaxy Nexus is something of an unusual beast. Because of some regional differences in the factory images (notably, the presence of Google Wallet on the US image) Google distributes multiple firmwares for one model of hardware. When determining if CM is supported on your device, you want to ensure the phone model is correct. In the case of the GSM ...

You don't need to install Gapps to use Cyanogenmod, you can install it and use it without them. If your real question is "do I need to install Gapps if I want to comfortable install all my favorite apps from the playstore?" then the answer is probably yes.

Is the hltevzw a build specifically for the Note 3 or all Verizon phones? I just want to be sure before flashing the wrong rom. It's for the Verizon Note 3 only.

Kudos to @Bruno for a detailed solution and needed files. A much quicker method is listed below, which does not require installing any ROM/Gapps or reboot into the ROM in between steps. You need an external SD card with enough free space to hold all apps+data+photos+etc that are on your internal phone storage. You can skip steps 1-5 if you already have CWM ...

I was having the same problem, had mobile data off and still it kept on charging 4 paisa now and then. Eventually I seem to have resolved the issue by checking "restrict background data" in advanced settings of mobile data. EDIT I figured out that in my case the location was enabled which was accessing mobile data. To see what is causing your data to leak, ...

I would go to the forum section of your device with whatever site you use and find the links for Odin and Samsung's official Kit Kat release for your device and flash that using Odin. Then you will be stock once again then accept the update and all should be fine.

In settings, superuser, you can switch off logs

Due to the device-specific nature of Android (it needs specific drivers for it to run on any one given device), it is generally impossible (or illogical, as it seems) to run a build of Android for a specific device on another device. This also applies to custom ROMs. Unless you can find a CyanogenMod build specifically for your device or for an extremely ...

1 & 2: Just flash what you want to have on your device, the old recovery will be overwritten. I recommend the app "Flashify" from Google play store for flashing recovery without computer. 3: About phone > tap build number seven times > press back > developer options > check "update CM recovery"

This issue seems to be in cyanogenmod for some time. See this bugdescription. A fix for MTK-compatible phones was posted here

This is a warning only for S2 i9100 owners, reading this question after seeing carrier drop in their phone. This thread suggests using GetRil. As far as I understand carrier drop issue, RIL depends on the firmware installed. What is to be changed is the modem/baseband. Now, before you try that out, *#1234# in your s2 i9100. If the response contains ...

Seems like there's no support at the moment, the L65 is not not listed on CyanogenMod's LG supported devices section.

CyanogenMod - Xperia SP maintainer here. If you are sure about having a Xperia SP then you can safely remove that assert check in the install script of the zip :) you should have the right prop id so you can continue on with normal releases. i've never seen this issue before.

Backup. Always do a nandroid backup (assuming you have CWM or TWRP since you have CM12.) Download the appropiate firmware for your device which can be found here Download Samsung Kies (during installation you will be prompted to install "developer" driver. Accept that. Download odin here and then extract it to a folder of choice Navigate to where you ...

FYI, I found out what the problem was: The stock rom needs to be updated to 4.2 (you can get the official rom here if there is no update available), I think because of the bootloader.

CyanogenMod is a full operating system replacement. When you install CM, you replace the entire system software that comes preloaded with the device. Depending on the device, doing so may require gaining root access by some means or may require little more than unlocking the bootloader. Devices that are less locked-down, especially Nexus devices, require ...

Try giving DNS configuration manually. It solved this issue for me.

Yes it's possible. You don't need the USB connection to do this. You need to flash a rooted kernel like Philz which is specific to the S2, and you need to do this from the stock Android recovery which you can access by holding power+home. The rooted kernel must be on the SD card.

Try adding: ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 to /system/build.prop file and reboot (will require root). Source: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=860023

If your device is rooted, as it probably is with CM, you can also do this via adb: adb shell rm /data/misc/adb/adb_keys Depending on your build you probably have to run adb as root(1) or call the su binary(2). (1) adb root or adb kill-server; sudo $(which adb) start-server --> adb shell rm /data/misc/adb/adb_keys (2)adb shell --> su --> rm ...

According to AndroidPolice is actually caused by a bug in Chrome Beta that showed up on certain custom ROMS. The recent update (v39.0.2171.90) contains a fix for this issue. It's likely that the next update for non beta Chrome will include a fix for this too.

This is happening in any custom ROM that supports floating windows. It is there, for example, in SlimKat, Spirit ROM, CM based ROMs etc. In my case I can move and size the window, and there is a maximize button available. It resizes the window with pinch to zoom automatically rendering it almost unusable. This is an app issue ultimately, but it is specific ...
