Hi,

I' ve rooted my S4 mini i9195 (with 4.4.2 I9195XXUCNE6_I9195YPRCNE2_I9195XXUCNE6_HOME.tar firmware) with xda guide, but i have battery drain issue. So I've flashed GT-I9195_Kernel_v1.zip, but after that when phone is restarting I'm only hearing a sound for a 3 seconds and screen is black. Do you have any advice because I sooooo want my device rooted

Thank you for your help.

The kernel you flashed is not for Kitkat (4.4.2)

That kernel is meant for stock jellybean 4.2.2. As for stock kitkat we have no custom kernels. So just rooting is the only way.
As for your device it will not boot 'coz you flashed the wrong kernel on incompatible ROM. Use ODIN to flash the firmware (4.4.2) and DO NOT WIPE DATA. Your device will boot just fine as you now have stock KK kernel. Also use any of the methods on this forum like flashing CWM and then rootkit or TOWELROOT or CF-auto root. All work fine. GOOD LUCK.
