Default [GUIDE] Root the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Value Edition (i8200)(i8200L)

I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Value Edition i8200L , i'm from Costa Rica and i tried everything to root it , from Android Unified Toolkit (That ensures that root the S3 Mini VE) to DoomLord and SRSRoot but nothing worked , the only metod available to root this phone is with VRoot 1.7.6.5899 this is the chinese version , the english version doesn't work cause i tried and nothing ,i think that was impossible to root it but i tried the chinese version and it works.

Here's my tutorial to root it (Sorry for my bad english)

1-Download VRoot in it official page , google it because i can't put links here cause i'm new member , the version that works it
VRoot 1.7.6.5899 if there are a new version just download it.

2-Install VRoot.

3-Download and install Samsung Drivers , google it to

3-Activate debug mode in developer options , if you dont have developer options go to About Phone and press 7 or 10 times in Build Number or Compilation Number and the developer options will be available , after go to it and activate debug mode.

4-Allow instalation from external sources , ubicated in security options.

5-Open VRoot and wait to detect your phone , if not reconnect the phone to the computer or reinstall drivers.

6-When VRoot detect your phone press Next in VRoot and the root procedure will begin , it will install 2 chinese aplications 1 is like Aptoide and the other is the Superuser , you need SuperSu because it is the more stable , after the root finishes the phone will reboot and you have root acces.

(Next Steps are optional because i'm gonna show you how to change to SuperSu)

6-Download SuperSu from Play Store , open it and install binaries.

7-Download Link2SD and make SuperSu a system application.

8-Reboot the phone.

9-Open SuperSu and if it asks you to update binaries , do it.

10-Go to Link2SD and uninstall the chinese apps that VRoot install.

11-Enjoy root

I posted a screenshot that VRoot shows when i rooted the phone.

Good Luck , any questions i'm here to answer it.

They are not viruses , they are exploits and the antivirus detects them as viruses.

Thumbs up Works also on S3 mini VE European version i8200N

Thank you so much DanielCarbajal96 !

I did exactly according to your description and it worked fine for me.
There was an addidtional thing to do: allow installation of external sources had to set.
The first time I set it on 'once' and only one Chinese app was installed , I had to do it again.

After I finished did something wrong when I installed SuperSU form the marked. It was not able to update binary's.
I did a 'RE-ROOT' , and now it is perpect.

thanks a lot.

Hans

Sigue bien las instrucciones amigo , solo con el VRoot chino funciona , recuerda activar instalaciones de origenes desconocidos en Seguridad eso me falto indicar.
