Hello.

I'm new to XDA and Android community and I have some questions if this is not problem.

I have Samsung Galaxy S III Mini GT-I8190.
I want safe and best way to root, install CWM and CyagenoMod and where to find all this?

Some advices, and if someone had problems, what was that, etc?

Edit : I found this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2400123

Q2 : Do I need to enable USB Debugging?
Q3: Do I Need external SD card?

Thanks in advance, very much.

hmm how about go to google.com and type how to root i8190.
after installing cm11 you will get last superuser app.
you should create the thread to q/a section. anyway before all that you need tp make a backup. or get original rom oj your Computer

First of all, this's the wrong place to post questions, do that on Q&A section. Second you'll learn to use the XDA search box before ask from now on. Regarding your doubts, read my FAQ here & to root take a look here & if it doesn't work, use the search box. Have fun guys & I almost forgot, welcome to S3 mini forum.

I searched xda and found this :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2030282
and
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...highlight=root

What is best of that 2 to follow? I think 2 because it says about CWM and I need it.

For CM : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&highlight=faq

I think I need to follow second and third link ?

Thanks in advance.

Internal storage should be big enough for many but remember two things:
1) 5Mpx camera. I save all photos to externalSD and they do take up 1GB fairly easily, if you take many photos like I do.
2) full phone backups (which you should always have at least one of) take up a LOT of space - mine are about 1.2GB each - and I keep them on extSD too to leave space for apps on internal.
