Hello xda,
I did root my s3 mini (GT-i8190) with vroot because I don't like to flash always with Odin for root access. Vroot rooted successfully my s3 mini. Then my system status was set to : CUSTOM after restart but that's no problem for me. Then I downloaded recovery tools [Root] from play store and installed Clockworkmod. Then I flashed CM 11 from NovaFusion because I like CyanogenMod But today I checked my system status then i saw this in odin mode :

Odin mode
PRODUCT NAME : GT-i8190
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD : No
CUSTOM BINARY : Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS : Official

(Please check uploaded pic.)

I don't understand why my system status is back to official.
Current I have Clockworkmod recovery and CM 11 installed.
And now my question did I lost my warranty or not?

This is a fake setting from the developer (as in many other ROMs too).
When you flash a custom ROM your warranty went away - thatīs a fact.
The only way to set it back to official is THIS WAY

if you flahs a custom rom your cbc will increase and your warranty is dead.
But there is a possiblity to set it back to complete official status (see post #2 here)
