I'm very proud today to present to you my first teaching guide about
the final and the most easy method
to root your siii mini without any download of a new firmware hehehe you think am crazy well let's find out:

*****And the good news that at the end you will not lose your warranty by CBC (custom binary count increase)*****


a little note before we begin I have never do anything by my own,all things you will see here is from different post
from our wonderfull members so if you wish to thank anyone just thank them and (this little post )...am here just doing a little arranging.

without any more words let's start:


1)install CWM recovery:
****if you haven't hear the good news yet am gonna tell it to you,
the wonderful team of cwm have finally maked our devices supported
so now it's more stable...more official..& will ITS WORKING ****

1- download this file
and unzip it. (Thank you my dear friend tys0n for the link )

2- download odin

3- shutdown/turn off your phone.

4- enter the download mode (to do that : Press the power key+volume down+home key).

5- continue (press the volume up key).

6- now plug your phone to any windows OS (PC,laptop..).

7- open odin.

8-


9- press the PDA button and select the unziped file from step (1)

10- press start button (and just wait till your phone is rebooted and a sign in odin tells you 'PASS!!')

##congratulations man you now have the cwm recovery and to access it (just follow the easy guide
by ppero169 how to reboot into recovery



2)download the root file:
1- download this zip file into your sdcard (super thanks to shaan

2- reboot to recovery (see the step 10 in stage one)

P.S : to navigate throw the CWM just use the up and down volume keys and the power button to select.

3- choose 'install zip from sd card'

4- choose 'choose zip from external sd card' or 'choose zip from internal sd card' it depend on where you put the root.zip file

5- navigate to the place you put the root.zip file on it (it's very recommended that you put it in the main tree..) and select it


6- get down to yes and select it


and let it do it's magic


7-then press 'reboot your system now' to reboot


and now dude you have a fully rooted
phone just like that...thank you veru mush for your patience
thank to all the member who gave us thoose wonderful files tools and thank you.

And the last and final step when you have successfully rooted your phone install the triangle away app from play store "] by the great member chainfire :thumbup: and wipe you cbc and you warranty is back

Just a question: Doesn't install cwm through odin make your custom binary increase?
If so, I think it should be mensioned in the text.

Exactly like kicker63 said...the root file doesn't have samsung signature which means it can't be flashed except in CWM since it can avoid the sig. Thing

Yes, and if you have cwm you are probably already rooted
Otherwise you'll have a custom binary count of at least 1 :/

So it look`s like it`s only for CWM and not Stock recovery like SHAAAN originally said.

It do not work with Stock Recovery.
