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.

  1. I love my G2. Have had it for about 8 months now maybe. It’s been an awoemse phone and enjoy it much more than I did my Nexus One. But the Mytouch 4G Slide is coming out in a few weeks and it’s specs look damn impressive. I mean, the 2nd gen snapdragon in this phone rocks (OC top 1.5ghz easily, or crazy 1.9ghz for the insane)? Imagine what a 3rd gen snapdragon dual core can do. Instead of selling I’m thinking of giving it to the wife, so my G2 will always be around. heh, Maybe I’ll try the meXdroidMod PreGhostChiliGIRL (Hot Pink) ROM.
