Updating stock rom firmware

Hi!

Is it possible to root a newer version of 4.1.2 and update this post?
XXAMG1 is from August 2013, and since then Samsung released new and more stable and smooth versions.

Thanks!

Flash any custom recovery for your golden.
After that flash SuperSu from Chainfire using your custom recovery. You can find the flashable SuperSU zip here on XDA.

Can you upload all previous versions instead of two previous versions ?

Edit: Nvm :D

Hello, I would like to know if it's possible to flash TWRP recovery through Odin, and only after this step I want to flash the root app from the recovery. Where can I find a link to the supersu app?

I hope I don't have to post in Spanish... (Guess that's was previous speaker used)
A few days ago, I got a used and unrooted i8190.
Your procedure and ROM made it really easy to root the device, Thanks very much. It worked out perfectly - even without having any experiences with the i8190 as we only used i9305's so far.
Please allow me a remark from own recent experiences, maybe valid to mention in the OP:
If the device seems after flashing through Odin for ever (you might believe it's a bootloop - it isn't!), just remove the battery, insert the battery again, and boot into recovery.
Even if you are still in e.g. the stock recovery with its extremely limited features, just do a factory reset (wipe /cache and /data - without internal storage), and boot back into system.
Afterwards, the re-start into system occured very fast afterwards - and more important: SYSTEM WAS ROOTED!

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

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

Hi, I have tried to solve my problem, bootloop, using your guide, but it keeps going in bootloop even after flashing param_i8190.tar

    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.
    or here

    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.
