After some requests from users here is a rooted rom for all the I8190 with NFC
This rom is based on the official I8190N-BTU-I8190NXXALL6-1356151513
Rom is compatible with all the I8190N devices.
This rom has not been tested, but i can assure you that it wont brick or break the warranty of your device.
Before flashing i recommend that you have a the original rom handy as a backup, you can find the here
http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I8190N




How to flash;

Before flashing I urge you to backup the device and the internal sd card ,Also be aware that if you restore the device to default factory settings it will erase your internal card!
Make sure that the pc installs the required drivers before going any further,Windows vista,7,and 8 should be able to download and install them by default, otherwise Install samsung kies.
Shutdown device
Put your device into Download mode is by pressing "Volume Down"+"Home"+Power Button" and then "Volume Up"
Connect device to pc
Unrar the downloaded package,
launch Odin , on "PDA" press browse and select the final.tar.md5 file ,then press "Start"
After the first boot you must reboot the device.
Alternatively If you familiar with ADB type the following commands to get into download:

Code:
adb shell
su
reboot download

Thank you for that. Works perfectly.
I have also installed CWM recovery
Any ideas how i can go back to stock recovery and where i get it from?
I have seen a stock recovery for a NONE NFC version (so just the 8190). can the same be used on the N version or does recovery vary from model to model?

Hi

I am going to try this, but can you first tell me what software I use to back up the device and the internal SD Card, and what is the difference between both? I know the SD Card is the removable memory, so perhaps by backing up the device you mean the ROM?

I tried backing up with Titanium Backup but it tells me the device needs to be rooted first.

I also tried Rom Manager but it also says I must be root for it to function. That said it does have some recovery and backup options I can access but there are so many options I do not know what to select.

Please help, thank you.
