    How to do it:

    Step 1) Turn OFF your mobile and go to Download Mode by pressing and holding the Volume Down + Home Buttons together for few seconds followed by Power button then proceed with volume up. (For some phones, when you see the construction Android robot and a triangle, press Power again to confirm to enter into Download Mode).

    Step 2) Now open ODIN on your PC and connect your Galaxy SIII Mini GT-I8190 to your computer.

    Step 3) Once your phone is successfully connected to your PC, the ID:COM box on ODIN will turn blue and will show the COM port number.

    Step 4) unzip the downlowded file (from second post), u will get a Home.tar file.

    Step 5) click on pda (in odin) and choose the file "Home.tar"

    Step 6) check "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" options and make sure that "Re-Partition" is unchecked

    Step 7) Click on Start button in ODIN window to start the installation process. The process will take few minutes to complete.

    DO NOT UNPLUG USB CABLE WHILE EXECUTING THE PROCESS, YOU MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE!

    Step 8) When the installation is completed, you read a "Pass". your phone will restart (first boot will take a longer time so don't panic) [​IMG]

    It is recommended to make hard reset after flashing to have a fresh official firmware

    NOTE 1: If you flashed custom recovery when rooting, please restore your stock recovery, do it before flashing stock firmware: refer to Please or Register to view links

    NOTE 2: If your phone stuck into a bootloop after flashing the firmware, take-off battery, reinsert it, boot in odin mode and flash "param_I8190.tar" (attached) as PDA.

    NOTE 3: If you have a corrupted partition table, (Odin says: "there is no pit partition" or "Re-Partition operation failed"), flash pit file for your device (attached) (put it in pit window) with your firmware, in this case "Re-Partition" must be marked.
