Default Rooting the Trio Stealth G2

Well as we all know the Trio products have little to no support on their website. so after alot of searching and digging around i finally found a way to root the stealth G2. now keep in mind this method has worked for me, and it MAY work for you im not sure just post your results here.
Quick reminder: I DID NOT COME UP WITH THESE METHODS, I SIMPLY LOOKED AROUND FOR SOME METHODS AND INCORPORATED IT TO MY DEVICE.

these are the links i got my info from
1.stackoverflow.com/questions/11582410/android-device-not-seen-by-adb-but-accessible-from-windows-xp

2.unlockroot.com/download.html

ALSO if anyone has found any quicker or better methods please feel free to post im only putting what i found worked for me



Step 1 getting the stealth g2 to be recognized as android device

Remember to keep the debug mode checked on your device
The first thing i did was get adb working on it. for me the device never installed properly it would say TrioStealthG2 with an exclamation. what i did was download the adt bundle from developer.android.com,from their once it finished downloading i clicked on it, i clicked on sdk,then clicked on extras,then google, and finally android usb. once in the android usb directory click on android_winusb.inf...from here you want to add some lines under either x86 section or x64 section (youll see under those sections alot of other device names like the nexus with same lines under their name)that will allow your device to be recognized as an android device and not as the G2.Here are the lines


;TrioStealthG2
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&MI_01

We are not done yet though now we want to copy and paste your device id over the line ending in: USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&MI_01, minimize the page and go to device manager. once their right click TrioStealthG2 or whatever the name is for you and go to properties then go to details and click on hardware id.copy the id it usually looks like the USB\VID_xxxx&PID_xxxx&MI_xx. once you finish copying your id go back to the android_winusb.inf file and now paste your id over those 2 lines i gave you. in the end it should look just like the lines i gave you, the only difference being that YOUR id is now pasted over instead of the one i gave you.it sshould look similar to this: it won't be exactly the same but similar.this is an example. You'll see my lines added in there .(you can try to paste my line and see if it works if not just follow the instructions.)

Save the file and exit now you want to go back to device manager and update the drivers on the trio. click on browse my computer for file and click on the directory the android_winusb.inf you saved is under. for me it was under the android usb folder so i clicked on android usb and thats it. it should update the drivers and tadah now you have an android device.


Step 2: Actually rooting the phone One click method (this is not my method and you can download the program at unlockroot.com/download.html


this is the EASIEST part once you finish getting the computer to recognize your trio as an android device just go to the site i gave and download unlockpro the free download. thats it, yes its free it has the free version and paid version. free version works just as well. once installed just click root, let it do its thing and your set. you may want to download SuperSU from the play store and if it lets you download binary files your good to go. test it and post results ;D

Hopefully it works xD its much easier thenn this method, afox you have to download android SDK once you got that just grab the android_winusb.inf file that's in it and add the lines I posted above inside that file,save then exit and update driver manually,and go to the folder that has your android_winusb.inf file it should install. I'll try to post an image of how it should look. It should look just like the other lines in that file

Thanks marreroj32! This totally worked for me. I have a Stealth G2 Hype (4GB ) and since I am new to rooting any android device, I had to do some research to find out what "adb" and other things meant, but it all worked out.

A list of my steps:

1. I actually had to end up copying your driver code into a text file and saving it as "android-winusb-alt.inf" because editing the Google .inf kept giving me errors. Oh and I had 2 Hardware IDs, one that matched yours identically and the other was USB\VID_16D5&PID_8005&REV_0231&MI_01, I used it and it worked fine.

2. My machine kept showing up as "0123456789ABCDEF" in adb devices so I had to actually open up the Dalvick Debug Monitor (command line ddms) and make sure I did in fact have the right device. And it did in fact show up as "mach_speed-g2-0123456789ABCDEF."

3. Once all of that was done, I downloaded UnlockRoot software (watch out for the adware and other goodies it tries to install on the free version) and ran it.

4.) Opened up a terminal on my device (I got Android Terminal Emulator from the PlayStore) typed in "su" and was given Super User access.

5.) This was when I realized "I rooted my device! Now what the hell do I do next?"

Thanks again for the guide
