Tried with another battery and checked that the original one had charge, but no luck. It does not start (normal, download or recovery, makes no difference).

Any ideas?

I had an similair problem like you. My phone died suddenly and nothing worked and if I say nothing I mean nothing, like you. I send it back and they changed the mainboard and the battery. I knew it was flashed with CM, but they werent able to find out So at least try it ;D

But then I tried to give it to Samsung so they went to download mode and saw that it was Custom and not Official.

Don't worry, I bought the phone from Amazon so I contacted them and now they are sending me a free replacement and they even upgraded it to first class for free compensation

Same problem here. Yesterday my phone went dead. Tried to charge it, it gives no response at all (no charging led, no vibration). I think it might be a problem with battery. What do you guys think? Also, I have to friends with s3mini and they both had the same problem 5 and 3 days ago. Isn't it weird that so many s3minis went dead at the same time? :\

Don't bother turning it on, send it to Samsung and they will replace the motherboard and they will never find out that it's rooted.

Or just return it to your seller. The contract of sales lies with the seller, not for you to send it to the manufacturer. I fully drained the battery of my bricked S3 mini before sending it back to Amazon (my seller) and they never found out it was rooted
