Info 2 Root S3 Mini (Need some help)

Hi Good Day s3 mini User!

I am from SGW and currently just retired SGW to a s3 mini

I read a lot of the way to root s3 mini non of them seem working for 100%.
Some are in chinese word and some only for I8190.
Is there any senior/experience user that have rooted their s3 mini willing to share and guide me to root my s3 mini to use custom rom?

My based band - I8190NDXLL7

Please advice.

Your best bet is to aquire the Samsung USB driver + Odin and flash ClockworkMod recovery onto your phone, you can then install any standard ROM onto your S3 Mini.

I'd say this guide is pretty self explanatory: http://maclaw.pl/installation-guide-golden/

If you want to root your phone you have to accept the risk, there's no 100% failproof solution.
These procedures are tested and proven to work and is relatively hard to hard brick your phone if you pay attention, but you never know.

Basically there are 2 ways to root your phone, install a pre-rooted firmware and root via custom recovery.
The way I like better is via custom recovery, it's firmware indipendent and it allows to do a nandroid backup before installing any "su" application.

Thanks for the advice. Appreciate it.

Thanks guys, I have successfully rooted my s3 mini.
I am thinking about using the STOCK ROM but those samsung apps that run at startup is eating my RAM.
I need to go to system folder and move out those .apk file from the folder right? Sorry I am still new in Android stuff.
Need some advice.

Thank in advance!

Do not move out or delete any apk on system folder, as far as i know, it will make your phone crash or even softbricked. CMIIW . If you want to disable Samsung Apps, just go to Settings > Application Manager > All Apps > scroll down until you find Samsung Apps. Click on it, and click Uninstall Updates, and then you can disable it. Samsung Apps icon will not appear on your app drawer.
