You need to change both what the Roamio/Mini respond to and what both remotes are sending. It sounds like either the Mini remote is still sending code 0 commands, which will be obeyed by all devices, or the Roamio is actually still code 0 instead of 9 (check the system info screen on the Roamio).
A remote sending code 0 will be responded to by all TiVos, a TiVo set to code 0 will be commanded by all IR remotes.
Remember that the standard Roamio remote is connected by RF and not IR, and therefore doing the tivo+pause - 9 setting on the Roamio remote does not actually send any IR signal to the TiVo (since it is using RF) and thus the Roamio's setting is not changed. Easiest way to get around this is to temporarily set the the Mini remote to code 9 and use it to change the Roamio to address 9, and then change the Mini remote back to code 3.
