    I have had my Galaxy Mini for 2 months now, and have been trying to root for one. I have tried superoneclick, the 7-zip download and many others including a guide that almost worked from this thread http://androidforums.com/captivate-all-things-root/483646-guide-root-official-2-3-5-guide.html .
    No matter what I do there is always a problem and I don't know what to do. When I bought my phone it was already 2.3.5 so I havent upgraded before with kies or any other way. I would really appreciate some help from someone that may have been in my position. Thanks, Chaos1577 :)

    I don't have expiriance with custom roms or something like that couse i don't trust them is 50/50 chance to brick the phone with them i only use stock rom on my rooted phone and applications that i need and nothing else.

    Is it bricked? And if it is tell if you can enter recovery mode only. Try this
    remove SIM, SD card and battery. Hold the buttons pressed for recovery mode in mid time enter the battery and if is possible to get the recovery mode. If you get into the recovery mode. Wipe cache partition and wipe data and reboot your phone but untill rebooting hold the buttons for download mode Home button + Power Button + Volume down and try to flash with stock rom via odin.

    from wich country you are?

    I'm realy sorry what happend. You started good but ended badly. Maybe you jump too early in conclusions to install custom rom. Time is needed to search how the apps work and the rest of it. But worst things in life can hapend, I say only health in life is important and the rest things will pass. I sugest you take it back in service. Format your SD card thru the SD micro adapter on your PC in (FAT) put it back. Tell them in service when you wake up in the morning that you diconnected from the charger and it wont started up. That trick will do and in 7 days it will be replaced with new motherboard or new phone. That's it good luck ;)

    I'm telling you from my expiriance I have already bricked mine when I was trying to unlock my phone with some very old methods and for that I needed to root my phone. So the Samsung Service they realy don't get involve in investigation of what hapend they only plug the phone to other machine just to check the voltage if it is a hardware failure (like droped the phone in water or burn the motherboard with overall voltage) but in this case is the boot loader has been dameged (software) that is situated in one memory chip but samsung as company they they don't get involve in to that only private mobile service can repair that with JTAG. Mobile providers services they only repair it in 2 ways ...they replace the motherboard complete or new phone from the box. That mean that even if they repair the bootloader they must do complete flash of the firmware and they don't have any evidance that the phone was already rooted. So you don't have to worry about that just tell the story as it is and in 7 days will meet again here.

    I think I've read somewhere that the ROM manager is not compatable with S5570 (mini)
