Rooting the IStar i9220S

I tried rooting the IStar i9220S and it turned out to be pretty easy…

Follow the XDA-Developers thread here and download the root tool available here.

Simply connect the phone via USB to your (Windows-based) PC. Ensure your phone is in USB Debugging mode, execute TPSparkyRoot.bat and follow the on-screen instructions. Your phone will reboot three times and voila – your phone is rooted.

I’m satisfied with the stock ROM on my phone, so I won’t start flashing anything before a Jelly Bean-based ROM is available.
