Network Spoofer is one of the greatest apps for your rooted Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini device. It doesn’t stay in the Google Play Store long since Google didn’t like it, but it’s still available on the open source market for you to install on your device.
The Network Spoofer app lets you pass all network traffic through your Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. The reason it didn’t last in the Google Play Store is because it allows people to get up to mischief. On that note, do not misbehave with this app.

- Reboot the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini in download mode (Home + Power + Volume Down buttons).
- Let go of those buttons and press the Volume Up button when it says to do that on the S3 Mini display.
- Connect the S3 Mini to the computer using the USB cable once you are in the download mode.
- The ID: COM port from the Odin user-interface should light up a color now.

Your S3 Mini device will be as stable as it was before rooting. The only difference is that the rooted image enabled and installed the SuperSU on your device. That SuperSU file is going to grant the rooting permissions to the apps which require root access when called upon. Make sure you recognize or research the names of the apps that are asking for you to grant them root access so you do not accidentally allow access to malware or a virus.
