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 :D

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 :laugh::laugh:

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

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

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

Hola

Hola amigo, luego de pelear un rato con el equipo por fin pude rootearlo con tu método, muchas gracias. Sabes si por casualidad se le puede instalar el CyanogenMod igual que un i8190L? Espero tu respuesta, gracias de antemano.

Indeed, and I'm from Nicaragua - So i clearly can speak Spanish. But in XDA the official language is English. If you speak in Spanish the OP will delete your post and even u could be banned...

Now, that's a much more complete answer, thanks, and i'm sorry for going against the rules.

So, let me ask again, in english this time. After trying for a while, i finally could root my phone, so thanks. Do you know, by any chance, if you can install the CyanogenMod on this phone? As in the i8190L? Thanks in advance for your answer.

You can't. There aren't any custom ROMs for the GT-I8200 variants yet.
