Could anyone be so kind as to tell me how to root my S3 Mini? I've found several guides, but they're either for the wrong model (mine's I-8190N) or the baseband versions don't match (mine ends in AMA1). So, I don't want to flash a rooted stock firmware that might not fit, so to speak. Any help?
This guide might be for you (though it's written in pidgin English). It will have you install CWM and subsequently flash a kernel (probably intl. version) using CWM. As far as I know the N model is identical to the intl. version, only that it has NFC capabilities. If you want to root your phone using this method you will lose those capabilities. You'll also keep your data and the stock ROM, but you should be able to flash different ROMs with CWM if you see fit to do so, just remember to create a nandroid backup using CWM.
Thanks, I saw that guide a while ago, but didn't go for it for whatever reason. Seemed too... I dunno. But I got it working and all, NFC is still in the settings menu, all is well. Thanks!
