This is a detailed guide on how to put stock recovery and rom back onto any Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini phone. I like also add that I have found the information used and images off other sites and users of XDA but I will place them in credit meaning that I am not taking any credit for this I'm just placing all information that's around internet into one place to make it simple for people.

I have tested all these methods on my Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini ( GT-I8190N ) and can confirm that they have worked 100% for my phone.

If find any newer methods then I will update this post and if find way to reword / make it easier for method that already listed then I will update that on the post.

Hope this detailed guide helps people out and I will try keep post up to date as much as i can.
