[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 184.108.40.20699 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 220.127.116.1199 if there are a new version just download it.

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.
