ROOT-KERNELS-ROMS-RECOVERY-MODS & UNBRICK




BEFORE START..READ ALL CAREFULLY.IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND DONT DO IT !!!

Samsung SIII mini Ve i8200/N/L/Q is not same with i8190/N/L
DONT TRY ANYTHING FROM I8190






ROOT METHODS

1. Vroot http://vrootdownload.info/

Instructions
1. Download the rooting application. (This app can root many other devices)
2. Install the app. This is a Chinese app so I will guide you.
3. Start VROOT and root now!
4. Now we need to install SuperSU from play store to replace the Chinese root manager called ???? 1.0.4.
5. Go to play store and install SuperSU.
6. Start SuperSU and you will be asked for permission by ???? 1.0.4, choose ??(means allow). (Should be the right side option.)
7. SuperSU will prompt to install SU binary, go ahead with OK and it will display successful.
8. Now, freeze ???? 1.0.4 in titanium backup, just in case you need it again.
Note: If you uninstall straight away from app manager, you need to make sure SuperSU updated the binary.
9. Re-run SuperSU to make sure everything is alright. You will be prompt again to install SU binary, just do what it asked.
10. After that, you are rooted with SuperSU and ???? 1.0.4 will not be there anymore
.


2. Kingo root http://www.kingoapp.com/
Instructions:

Just run the app


3. Flash SuperSU
install a custom recovery and flash the zip
HERE the link





RECOVERY

[HIDE]

TWRP recovery (SAFE)
Link here
Link [URL="https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_Ll3DMFgVomUXZ3RE5kV3Q4UlE/view]NEW TWRP SAFE[/URL]
Work now everything and the boot image backup...reboot bug only.boot with only three buttons method

[COLOR="Red"]Attention with TWRP-Recovery. Data-Partition restore seems to be not right. At the moment please did not use it, because it can delete your data-partition. We have to investigate it further! Other partitions seems to be ok, but its a good Idea if you copy your important data also manually to a other storage (like PC) while you trying things of this thread.[/COLOR]


Philz Touch Recovery (safe)
Link Here

Infos for Philz recovery:
Philz-Recovery seems to work fine for the Backup/Restore functions and also some zip-installations (be aware that not every zip is compatible with i8200!) .No workin boot image backup


Warning about the recovery:
Nevertheless, it is absolutely recommended to go to recovery ONLY WITH THE THREE BUTTON METHOD !!! To try it with the software/adb/startmenü "Reboot to recovery" will produce at the moment a bootloop, which can produce a "not easy to solve Softbrick". The three-Button-Method is safe!



Installation Guide for recoveries:
Open Odin v3.09
Reboot phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons)
Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
Add the recovery file mda file to AP / PDA
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
Click the start button, sit back and wait a few minutes





*NOW Take a backup before continue

as you all know...CM development is made for free and developers decide if they want to start work on CM on a certain device.. we only hope that some developer will buy our I8200 and start work for it

That's why they need donation for new custom roms. They need to buy the specific device, so they can work with it
So we need to gather a donation and say what we want
