Hi! This is an index and guide about the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini plus i9195i :)
Rooting guide:
I downloaded Kingroot and rooted it there (even though it said not supported, it still worked). I then downloaded Super me and let it do it's magic (delete Kingroot apps and install SuperSU apps). It takes about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you can get your refund from the Play Store.

Xposed guide:
I downloaded the Xposed installer, went to install/update, and it all went smoothly for me. Other users reported boot loop, but my phone was fine, so don't blame me if you get boot loop.

Custom Roms:
KitKat ROMS:
CyanogenMod 11

Lollipop ROMS:
CyanogenMod 12.1

Marshmallow ROMS:
CyanogenMod 13

Nougat ROMS:
LineageOS 14.1

Oreo ROMS:
LineageOS 15.1
dotOS 2.4
Resurrection Remix 6.0.0

Pie ROMS:
LineageOS 16
Pixel Experience
Credits to @Danil_e71 for the development on our device :)
As far as my testing went, all these ROM's are pretty stable and that includes LOS 16. This device is not my primary device though, so I don't test as well as I used to. LOS 16 doesn't seem to have any major bugs. (I didn't even find minor bugs either, but again, I don't test properly.). You need the latest TWRP to flash it though.

Custom Kernels:
Custom kernel by alexax66 for stock ROM 4.4
.zip file (v 0.1.7)(Flash via recovery)
.tar file(v 0.1.7)(Flash via odin)
(v 0.1.7) Disc image file
Source

It works well, normal features work and it seems to make the phone work faster. I found that all kernel features do work, while there are a few bugs (I've come across 2: the alarm clock doesn't work and I can't search for mobile networks/ put new apns in). To make sweep2sleep work, you must insert
Code:
su
echo 1 > /sys/sweep2sleep/sweep2sleep
into the terminal after adding code to the build prop (this worked for me, but after a reboot it stopped). I installed first via TWRP official and then via Odin. I'm not sure if you have to do it that way, but I can assure you that if you do do it that way, it will work.
I would not recommend this kernel, due to its instability, although I did used to use it daily.

I could not get WiFi working on this kernel.

Overclocks to 1.4 Ghz, and works well.

What is Stagefright?

wikipêdia:
Stagefright is the collective name for a group of software bugs (or more specifically backdoors), that affect versions 2.2 ("Froyo") and newer of the Android operating system, allowing an attacker to perform arbitrary operations on the victim device through remote code execution and privilege escalation.[1] Security researchers demonstrate the bugs with a proof of concept that sends specially crafted MMS messages to the victim device and in most cases requires no end-user actions upon message reception to succeed, while using the phone number as the only target information.[2][3][4][5]

I've done it via same route, it was bit of a hassle for trying to find information about this exact phone. Nice compilation here. Thumbs up.

I added a bunch of disc images of kernels and recoveries (no new releases :( ) I also added the newest stock kernel if anyone needs it. (Released 11 Jan 2016) :D Also, TWRP 3.0.0-0 is out for our device, links are there. Is anyone working on CM by the way?

Anyone flashed any of the stock firmware in the original post?

Mine came with the stock firmware from another country, and I would like to flash the one for my country to see if the cell phone signal is any better.

Should I bother?

BTW, will doing that trip the knox meter?

I tried to change Kingroot with SuperSUMe but can't do this, course can't brake Knox. I try to install SuperSU it also can't brake Knox. Wtf?
I need custom kernel without bugs for our i9195i.
I also can mention that the Rom for each country has special BB (baseband - drivers for radio module). But there is no any Rom for my country... So i have unstable signal...

---------- Post added at 05:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:02 PM ----------

How to disable Knox?

Update: Got a custom ROM fully working (with small bus where and there). Check the first post :)

You've got a interesting thread here to stay up-to-date on info about our phone, but shouldn't you mention some credits to the guy(s) that found the cm11?
I think it's Chrisled2 talking about it on cyanogenmod-forum (i see he's active here also by the name of chrisled):

There are mentions about problems with play store, and playing video files in browser.

But thanks again for keeping us up-to-date!
Could you maybe try and test the infrared-functions with the custom rom? I use it for my television and decoder.

I thought OyyO found it first but I wasn't sure. I would've given creds to the devs but they don't seem to be on this site, if they are, tell me, but I've only seen them on 4pda, a Russian site. The truth is that I didn't test it enough to notice all the bugs. I lost a lot of interest when I found that I couldn't put Xposed on
