please use appropriate screenshots:
1. Odin 1.85 are different than 3.x, which 1.85 is preferred for flashing
2. CWM version is different (screenshot 5.0.2.7, file 5.0.2.8)
3. you use Galaxy S3 for all other screenshot

also i prefer to use squadzone AIO to root (since it support OC and BLN), maybe you could make tutorial about that

Q&A about the GALAXY MINI 2

A: In the unix/linux world root is the super user that can do anything on the system.
In the windows world the user is called Administrator.
Q:What are the advantages and disadvantages of rooting ?
A: SeeMod Edit
Q:What is difference between GT-6500, GT-S600D, GT-6500T, GT-6500L?
A: GT-S6500 is international version of GALAXY Mini 2 and it has NFC,
While GT-S6500D, GT-6500T, GT-6500L are regional naming of Samsung and it has no NFC
Q:Can i install GT-S6500D ROMs on my GT-S6500?
A: Yes ROMs can be installed successfully but the NFC feature of S6500 cannot be used,
BUT STILL eventhough it can be installed it is not RECOMMEND to do so.
Q:How to root my GALAXY Mini 2?
A: Follow the guide above:D
Q:How to unroot ?

Q: What is Kernel ?
A: In computing, the kernel is the main component of most computer operating systems;
it is a bridge between applications and the actual data processing done at the hardware level.
Q:What is Stock ROM ?
A:A STOCK ROM is native ROM thats installed when you brought the device, STOCK ROM also means
OFFICIAL FIRMWARE from the manufacturer. (In this case, SAMSUNG)
Q:What is Custom ROM ?
A: A custom ROM is a fully standalone version of the OS, including the kernel
(which makes everything run), apps, services, etc - everything you need to operate
the device, except it's customized by someone in some way. (e.g CyanogenMod, Muiu, Paranoid Android)
Q:So what does the "customized" part mean?
A: Since Android is open source, developers are free to take stock ROMs,
modify them, strip them of garbage, optimize them, add things, and pretty
much do whatever their imagination and skills allow.
Q:Is there a Custom rom for my Mini 2?
A: Yes there a few custom roms for S7500, based on GingerBread (Android v2.3) and Jelly Bean (Android v4.1, v4.2) ,
see the bottom of the tutorial post :)
Q:What is a BRICKED phone ?
A: When used in reference to consumer electronics, a "brick" describes an
electronic device such as a smart phone, game console, router, or tablet
computer that owing to a serious misconfiguration, corrupted firmware, software,
or a hardware problem, can no longer function .
Q:How to remove that ugly yellow triangle, at the boot screen ?
A: It is removable by TriangleAway by Chainfire, you can purchase it on the PlayStore

I flashed the ROM, but i had an error at the end. I was very nervous.

I put out the Battery, and put it again after 5 minutes and turn on the phone. It start normally with the S6500D.

I verify the ROM with *#1234# and the PDA is updated but the CSC is "Unkown". Is it a problem?.

Thanks for your opinion.

Guys is that very safe to overclock sgm2 to 1ghz for a long time?
This sgm2 is using MSM7227A chipset which used by 1ghz galaxy ace plus and xperia J, and wikipedia said that this MSM7227A chipset speed range is 800 mhz - 1 ghz . Is that mean sgm2 is underclocked?
Sorry for my bad english

Thanks for your answer bro, btw one more question . What is the best I/O scheduler for gaming ? Noop,deadline,cfq,vr or sio?

Sent from my GT-S6500D using xda premium
SIO is recommended for optimum stability
most likely you can OC to 1.088Ghz - 1.107Ghz stable..

some reached 1.126Ghz w/ some voltage tweaks.


BTW: please click THANKS if i help xD

Tutorial worked great, the root checker app tells me that i'm root, but why when i connect with adb and run id it shows me an uid different than 0? (as in not root) ? and when i try to navigate the filesystem i get permission denied.
