    Hello, community :)

    This is my problem:

    Yesterday I tried to root my S3 Mini but something went totally wrong.
    I've tried about 5 firmwares (various versions of cf-root and a "Rooting Kit" which was adjusted to the S3 Mini, according to the website at least) so far, all giving the same result: The first part of the boot screen saying SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 MINI appears, but the process stops there and nothing's happening until the battery dies.

    Then I tried to put the original firmware back on the phone, which I downloaded from Samsung LIVE. Same result.
    Nothing's working anymore, except the ODIN Mode.

    Is there any way to get my phone working again? It would be great if the data wasn't lost, but that's not the main thing. I just want my phone to be usable again.

    Well, basically this just means that all of the firmware you tried were wrong ones. Do you have the build number and CSC number of your device?

    Hello, thanks for your reply!

    Can you tell me where to find those numbers?

    They were supposed to be seen in your phone by dialing a code. If you don't have them and you cant turn on the phone, I have no idea how to help you other than advise you to just download all the stock ROM versions you can find. Hopefully one of them will work. Or take it to a service center. Just tell them you were updating via Kies and the power went out. Hopefully they don't find out what you've been doing so you can be covered by warranty for free service.
