Default [GUIDE][XXAMG1][4.12] Root for Galaxy S III Mini I8190

Hi Evryone.

Until somebody will release CWM Recovery or root for this device, I managed to create a pre-rooted firmware.
This firmware base on the last build for I8190, is a full firmware exactly like the original, except the root.
after flash you will see the SuperSU app in the app drawer.

flashing this firmware do not doing wipe data. you will not lose anything.
also, this flash not increase your download binary count.


This file will work on any firmware/baseband.

Caution!
This is only to the I8190, not I8190T or I8190N


base on - XXAMG1.
PDA - I8190XXAMG1
PHONE- I8190XXAMG1
CSC- I8190OXXAMG1
Android version: Jelly Bean 4.12






Download
https://mega.co.nz/#!50BD3RTJ!frjDD3...U8h6H_3JwAH5kM


Installation instructions
  • Download the zip file above and extract to some folder, you should receive a tar file. (Extract by double click on the 7z exe file)
  • Open odin 3 (attached) and put the tar file in pda.
  • Put the divece into download mode. (vol down + home + power button, and then click on vol up)
  • Connect phone to usb and wait for odin detect the device.
  • Click start.

p.s.
For some reason in some models it's impossible in this device to boot into recovery mode (by combination of buttons).
If you want to do wipe data doing it from the settings menu (factory reset) or if you have a boot loop problem, flash the attached file WIPE_I8190.zip (the tar file inside zip) via odin in pda, it will do wipe data automaticly.

Who happened to him soft brick as result of wrong flash (for example cf-root of I9300) and the phone stuck on boot, first flash root file and after this flash param_i8190.tar (attached). it will fix it.

Enjoy

I did not make any change in the kernel or recovery, just decompile system img, adding root files with the right permissions and recompile again.

you need to extract the content of tar/md5 and decompile/recompile system.img.

There is no way to recompile this .img format in windows, just decompile if you want.
if you want to recompile you have to use linux.

i'm using this tool.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1081239

the commands in this thred fit to Galaxy S2 only. for Galaxy S3 mini use this commands instead.

To unpack the .img file:
Code:
./simg2img system.img output.img
To view and edit the contents of .img file:
Code:
mkdir tempdir; mount -o loop output.img tempdir
To repack .img file:
Code:
./mkuserimg.sh -s /tempdir ./system_custom.img ext4 ./temp 1170M
after recompile you rename the new file to system.img and make tar from him and other files in the original firmware.

Wow, thanks! Hats off to you, good sir!

Any chance of doing this for other firmwares? Or does it not matter what is currently installed on my phone?

At the moment, I have:
PDA: I8190XXALJL
CSC: I8190CNXALJ4
PHONE: I8190CNXALJ4

My Baseband and Build number fields (in the About device screen) also reflect the info above, of course.

The original firmware can be downloaded from here.

Oh, and one more thing - installing a firmware such as yours won't add to the Samsung triangle thing because no custom recovery is installed, right?
