I'm enjoying CM10.2 I just wish they would fix the display issues. Any app with in-app ads just bug out as well as stock mail apps, stock browser, etc. Also cannot use most apps in landscape mode without display issues.

I just checked the cm forums now, apparently the display (flickering) issues were sorted in the 30ths build. Not sure about the rotation issues though.

Check Youtube or Whatsapp, turn on auto rotation and then flip between portrait and landscape. Mine doesn't switch resolutions properly and I get stretched out images, etc.

Mines all good ... (Nexus 4)

It seems they really sparked with the last couple of releases. Camera is working in CM10.2 now, screen flickering is fixed. Nice! Focal also working here.

EDIT:
I don't have that YouTube bug on my S2.

I've been reading into this and I'm actually really considering putting it on my S3, thing I would like to know is, would I be able to go back to the stock Android OS that came with my phone?

Also is there not a Android that I could put on that just doesn't have any bloatware in it, like a clean one?

Yep, all those things working properly since 30th Aug I think. Screen flickering and rotation bug fixed. Video camera still not functional for certain apps, but I don't see this getting fixed.

Yes, you can restore to your stock ROM - there are several ways of doing this: after the initial installation of ClockWorkMod (CWM), you can perform a backup of your device. This is like an image that you use to restore your phone to the original ROM/ state. Personally, I deleted my backup as I will never use it again. The other method (and the one I would recommend), would be to download your device's official ROM from sites such as http://sammobile.com or http://samsung-updates.com , then use Odin (found here: http://samsung-updates.com/Odin307.zip ) to flash it to your device.

Cyanogenmod is really clean, and does not contain nearly as much bloatware as original releases. Just looking at the size difference between the compressed CM ROM, and official ROM will give you an indication of how much bloatware is included in the official release. On the S II 9100, the CM 10.1 (Android 4.2.2) ROM is about 180MB (with GApps included, it's about 260MB in total), while the official Samsung ROM (Android 4.1.2) is about 590MB...

If you have any questions regarding requirements, and the flashing process, please do not hesitate to ask. ;)

Cool thanks!

I am thinking of installing this one: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?type=RC&device=i9300

And apparently according to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nsk-XY5j4c I must use a app called goo manager?

Problem with the video above is the guy talks so much that I can't follow him on what he is doing. :(

Never installed it. Skipped and went straight to 10.2 nightlies.

Same here

Goo is the server they store Roms ... My guess for the manager is purely for keeping you up to date with releases.

Generally there are two methods, with both cases, do this first:

* Enable USB debugging on your device.

* Download CWM (found here: http://download2.clockworkmod.com/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.3.1-i9300.img ) - copy to your PC.

* Download your ROM (you can download CM 10.1 RC2 for your i9300 here: http://get.cm/get/auW ) - copy to your memory card.
* Download the Google Applications (found here: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20130812-signed.zip ) - copy to your memory card.

Then either follow this guide: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_i9300

Or, you can use the Odin method (I prefer this method as it is much faster, and does not require modification of your PCs drivers): download Odin ( http://samsung-updates.com/Odin307.zip ), flash CWM via Odin, boot your phone into recovery mode (volume up, menu, power key), then perform a factory wipe/ reset, clear the cache, then install the ROM file you downloaded from memory card, as well as the GApps file you downloaded - reboot your phone, done.

Well, considering that the GPU issues are resolved now, I may flash 10.2 again. :)

I enjoyed CM 10.1.3 RC1, but had severe battery drain issues. Apparently, this was a known issue, and should be fixed with RC2 however.

Anyone having Facebook sync issues? My contacts don't sync and this in turn causes WhatsApp not being able to sync with my Facebook contacts.

Anyone know of a fix? I've tried haxsync and friendcaster but still no luck :(

Edit: I have 10.2 nightly installed.

nvm got the fix here
