  • the security programs running on your smartphone should also be deactivated;
  • turn on USB Debugging on your handset;
  • only Windows should be running on your laptop.

Step by step instructions

  1. If you can’t wait to start, we have the very first few tasks for you to follow. For now, make sure your laptop contains the rooting app. This is why we have to indicate the place the SRSRoot app is at; here’s the link.
  2. Be sure to tap on that, then click on the download button which is going to appear on that site.
  3. For the next part, we recommend installing the app; after you open it on the same device, a good idea is to enable Unknown Sources. In order to quickly do so, find the option under Settings; after that, tap it.
  4. This next task tells you to see to it that USB Debugging is turned on; if it is, move on. Like this: provide, with the phone’s USB cable, a plugging between the laptop and the Galaxy S3 mini VE GT-I8200.
  5. Achieving a connection between the two devices is easy and it doesn’t take an eternity. When the products are safely plugged to one another, tap Root Device (All Methods).
  6. You will soon experience the rooting of your smartphone; this is a phase that only takes 10-15 minutes. To solve any sort of problems you may have here, it’s always indicated that you redo the steps.
  7. In the absence of rooting problems, the handset can be rebooted. To operate a restart, you should head over to this option: Reboot System Now. When you see it pop up, you will have to make sure it’s turned on; for that, tap it.

Take the rooting goodies for a spin. Are they rising up to expectations? If they are, you’ll have great fun with them; if they aren’t, you’d better revoke, via the SRSRoot, the root access from your phone.
