CyanogenMod for S4 mini Sprint

Until now, all the AOSP roms were only available for the international variants of the Galaxy S4 mini (I9190 and I9195). Now finally, CyanogenMod 11 becomes unofficially available for the lucky Sprint Galaxy S4 mini users.

This project is under development by xda member s0be based off arco's CM11 and it appears that most of the things that you need for daily use are working just fine. Not only do you get CyanogenMod 11 for your Spring Galaxy S4 mini, but you also get the custom recovery CWM Recovery which you need to use of course to flash the rom, create nandroid backups and such.

Confirmed to be working:

  • Boot Animation
  • Wifi/Tether
  • Bluetooth
  • Basic Sound
  • Adb/Usb/Charging
  • Camera
  • Notification LEDs
  • NFC
  • IR Remote
  • FMRadio
  • LTE/SMS/MMS/Calls

Rooting your phone and flashing custom roms voids your warranty! Not following the steps properly could also lead to a bricked phone. S4MiniArchive and the developer(s) will not be responsible for any damages caused to your device.
