The above instructions did not work for me. Everything passed but no su binary was installed on the phone, so no root access. CWM installed fine though. Anyway the instructions in the other thread in the development forum worked perfectly. My model is GT-I9195. Just posting this here so other folks looking for root instructions are aware.

This seems to be arco68 's old root method. Read arco68's thread on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Mini Android Development subforum. There are latest instructions with odin v3.09 there.

Is this the same way as arco68 method? If it is true, then why you doubled the threde? And without the permission and credit from him, that means you steal from him.
