I've found this 5 minutes ago :)
It seems that this tool works for our S3 mini, just need to edit the param.cfg file.

Output of the tool linked above on my Linux VM:

To make sure

I have posted it in official rooted thread in general section.
I8190XXAMG4_I8190XXAMG4_I8190OXXAMH1-PreRooted.zip - 669.33 MB

Sent through time and space from my s3mini/CM10.1

MOREOVER though

Here it is... I8190XXAMG4_I8190OXAAMG4_DBT-BTU-ITV-XEF-XEO_PR20130902.zip

Unpack .tar.md5 file from the zip archive and flash with Odin in the PDA section.


Right, so here comes the stupid question. 1) What is the difference of those 2. 2) My make is I8190XXAMG4, with CSC:MH1(EUR), Greece. I use either of these ^^ files now with odin,rather than the I8190XXAMG1_I8190OXXAMG1_HOME_rooted_by_avicohh.7z (570.5 MB) included in the original post of avicohh and if yes which and why? Too new at samsung. Strangely enough I found hacking HTCs easier :p

**UPDATE**

Impatient as I always am, I went ahead and used the 8190XXAMG4_I8190XXAMG4_I8190OXXAMH1-PreRooted.zip - 669.33 as it had the same CSC (no idea what that is) and was also used by a Greek, therefore most probably the same device as sets here are rarely branded. Works like a charms

Only difference is the csc version. Don't know what update includes..could be some added csc, updated settings for some provider or something...
The one you picked is the most recent one, so you picked the right one :)
Good it worked out fine.

Hi,

just want to share my experience. I have tried several ROMs including custom and stock ones. The best performance and mainly battery life I achieved with XXAMB3 stock ROM from Avicohh. I have also tried the newer XXAMG1 version, but the battery life decreased significantly and I also experienced force close issue on some apps.

BTW any idea when 4.2.2 will be officially released for S3 mini?

    Hi Evryone.

    Until somebody will release CWM Recovery or root for this device, I managed to create a pre-rooted firmware.
    This firmware base on the last build for I8190, is a full firmware exactly like the original, except the root.
    after flash you will see the SuperSU app in the app drawer.

    flashing this firmware do not doing wipe data. you will not lose anything.
    also, this flash not increase your download binary count.


    This file will work on any firmware/baseband.

    Caution!
    This is only to the I8190, not I8190T or I8190N


    base on - XXAMG1.
    PDA - I8190XXAMG1
    PHONE- I8190XXAMG1
    CSC- I8190OXXAMG1
    Android version: Jelly Bean 4.12

    Download
    https://mega.co.nz/#!50BD3RTJ!frjDD3hIV1GoaMpyHeWWITRm3HFymU8h6H_3JwAH5kM


    Installation instructions

    • Download the zip file above and extract to some folder, you should receive a tar file. (Extract by double click on the 7z exe file)
    • Open odin 3 (attached) and put the tar file in pda.
    • Put the divece into download mode. (vol down + home + power button, and then click on vol up)
    • Connect phone to usb and wait for odin detect the device.
    • Click start.

    p.s.
    For some reason in some models it's impossible in this device to boot into recovery mode (by combination of buttons).
    If you want to do wipe data doing it from the settings menu (factory reset) or if you have a boot loop problem, flash the attached file WIPE_I8190.zip (the tar file inside zip) via odin in pda, it will do wipe data automaticly.

    Who happened to him soft brick as result of wrong flash (for example cf-root of I9300) and the phone stuck on boot, first flash root file and after this flash param_i8190.tar (attached). it will fix it.

    Enjoy

    If you want to thank me for this work, you can do this by donating..

    Regards
    Marsdroid / Brokenworm

    http://Marsdroid.6te.net

    Sent from my GT-I8190 using XDA Premium App
    I did not make any change in the kernel or recovery, just decompile system img, adding root files with the right permissions and recompile again.

    Ok, so... where's the firmware ??
    press on download button in the nain post, it's a link.

    Hi guys!

    I am presently working on i9070, which is the same platform as S3 Mini (NovaThor)
    I have merged the i9070 and S3 Mini sources, so we can have the same Kernel features on both the devices since they are derived from the same platform.
    I need a tester and the stock boot.img/zImage/kernel.bin (whichever format is used) from stock ROM.
    Please attach it here, and PM me if a tester is interested.
    You can checkout my other work in the links in my sig.

    Got lots of plans if things work out well ! :)

    That sounds just great! Unfortunately I don't think I've got the time to be a regular tester, but hopefully someone will reply with a PM :D
    For now, all I can do is to provide a boot.img
    Downloaded it. I've got a Kernel build ready. If anyone wants to test it, PM me ASAP.
