Is it possible to activate a rooted g2? If so, does it need to be on a stock based ROM?

You mean bypassing the activation screen ?

Volume Up, Volume Down, Back Back with sim card out
or
Vol Up, Vol Down, Back, Home

If you mean actually activating it with Sprint only works if ur ESN is clean I think.
Makes me wonder if you can use a Sprint on T-mobile.

Yea, I meant actually activating it with sprint.

So if the phone is rooted, does it mean it has bad ESN?

What I'm trying to do is give my phone to my wife and didn't want to re-root.

No rooted does not mean it has a BAD esn.
Just means someone decided to do custom Roms Apps and so on.

BAD ESN happen when contract hasn't been 2 years.
Phone was stolen. Not eligible to upgrade etc etc all the things that would happen if the phone isn't paid for in full.

If it was urs, ur contract is fine and she is on the same plan as urs aka family plan.
Go to sprint Store and they should be able to swap numbers.
If you got the phone somewhere, AND it may have been stolen it will be harder to hook it up and that kind of topic is frowned upon on here.
If you word things towards the negative that is.

Hope this helps.

OK thanks.

We are both on individual sprint sero plans so shouldn't be a problem as far as that goes.

I was just afraid sprint would have a problem activating a device that has an aosp rom instead of stock.
