I rooted this device with Kingo Android Root

Sent from my GT-I8200L using XDA Premium 4 mobile app
thanks for info you made root with kingo root for i8200
did this kingo root install also another app like vroot or just it made only root for i8200 ?

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


I did everything, but in the item 10, when i deleted all the apps installed by VRoot (including KingUser), i cant open SuperSU anymore (says that can´t install binaries), then i cant modifie nothing in Link2SD (not root access), and cant uninstall SuperSU either... (sorry abou the english)

My question is: must i have to leave KingUser also installed (with SuperSU)? or i can delete it?

Hi, guys.

Well, all links of Vroot official like www.mgyun.com/en/getvroot, http://vrootdownload.org/ and http://vrootdownload.info/ only download the 1.7.3 version, until the links that say to be v1.7.6 and v1.7.8.
I have a model GT-I8200L, from Brazil:
- Android Version
4.2.2
- Baseband version
I8200LUBUANE3

The 1.7.3 version not work to root my model and I found the 1.7.8 chinese version in other post inside here, on the message http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=53548755&postcount=41.
Only the v1.7.8 of Vroot worked to my model.
I hope this helps someone.

Hi all!

First of all I wish to confirm that Vroot 1.7.9 works fine and my S3 Mini VE is now ROOTed.
Specifically:
- VRoot v 1.7.9.2.140927
- Galaxy S III Mini GT-I8200N [Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean - Baseband I8200NXXUANG1 - Kernel v3.4.5]



Cheers mate! Many thanks for putting this Guide together and helping us noobs with ROOTing our Galaxies.

Do find an archive attached with this post. It is that thing which worked well for me.
Now You don't need to waste time, rummaging throug the Web, as most of rubbish out there is in fact an old 1.7.3 version...

As DanielCarbajal96 mentioned above, the entire rooting process took around 5mins, it was entirely in Chinese. There were some, easily understandable, pictures and symbols which lead me through the whole process.

Since I had Kies installed for a good while before I even thought of ROOTing my I8200N I decided not to bother going after any other drivers.

At long last, I can tidy up my App Drawer and do some Freezing and/or Unistalling :D
Firstly, all the rubbish such as Facebook or ChatOn... GONE :) Then some magic from Titanium Backup etc.

By the way, NONE of the lot such as Contacts, Messages, etc. were harmed during ROOTing process.
Work away freely then and enjoy some more freedom.

Again, much obliged to DanielCarbajal96 :beer: :highfive:

Thanks

Hi,
I'm new and I'm not english, sorry for my english .
I have a Samsumg Galaxy S III mini ( GT-I8200, android version 4.2.2 ) .
I noticed my device it's different from others, it's the last model .
I searched online but it seems there aren't Cyanogenmod support for this device .

Someone reached this objective unless errors ?

P.S.
I wrote here because the user has reached the root-objective, maybe he can know something about this ROM :) .

Like some others have reported, i'm also having problems swapping Kinguser for SuperSU after rooting with vRoot. Anyway, i've tried everything i've seen posted here, but i always get the "Installation failed" message when SuperSU tried to install binaries.

For now i'm just sticking with Kinguser. It seems to work fine and as long as i've got root access i'm happy.

    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.
