Default [Q] How to enable 3G under 850 MHz in a S3 Mini i8190?

Gentlemen,
I recently bought a i8190 international version, but it is not connecting on the 3G network in Brazil, which is 850 MHz.

Flashing a custom MOD or using any other trick would help me connecting on 3G?

Thanks a lot.

Roger

Hi. I'm sorry to say that it won't be possible.
It is hardware related, and the reason why there's a i8190L which I believe got 3g over 850MHz.
Just switching modem software can brick it.

Thanks a lot for your reply, tys0n.

Any chance I could switch the hardware part that would let it work on 850 MHz?
