First of all I wish to confirm that Vroot 1.7.9 works fine and my S3 Mini VE is now ROOTed.
- VRoot v 22.214.171.124.140927
- Galaxy S III Mini GT-I8200N
[Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean - Baseband I8200NXXUANG1 - Kernel v3.4.5]
Cheers mate! Many thanks for putting this Guide together and helping us noobs with ROOTing our Galaxies.
Do find an archive attached with this post. It is that thing which worked well for me.
Now You don't need to waste time, rummaging throug the Web, as most of rubbish out there is in fact an old 1.7.3 version...
mentioned above, the entire rooting process took around 5mins, it was entirely in Chinese. There were some, easily understandable, pictures and symbols which lead me through the whole process.
Since I had Kies installed for a good while before I even thought of ROOTing my I8200N I decided not to bother going after any other drivers.
At long last, I can tidy up my App Drawer and do some Freezing and/or Unistalling
Firstly, all the rubbish such as Facebook or ChatOn... GONE
Then some magic from Titanium Backup etc.
By the way, NONE of the lot such as Contacts, Messages, etc. were harmed during ROOTing process.
Work away freely then and enjoy some more freedom.
Again, much obliged to DanielCarbajal96
