I purchased phone on ebay for $149.99. I was supposed to receive the Star N9000 (i9220) but ended up with the ALPS F7100

They both appear to be Galaxy Note look alike but have lower resolution. Physically appears to be built well other than not knowing if it has Gorilla Glass, which I assume it does not.

This phone does not appear to be have T-mobile 3G Bands unlike what is stated in the Star N9000 that multiple people in Amazon state 3g with T-mobile which is contrary to what the box says. The back of the phone for SIM1 says GSM/CDMA but I'm unable to verify actual operating band. Further search on eBay turned up a N7100 that is aesthetically similar.

I have a 3g SIM, but I assume that I am doing something wrong or I am using wrong T-mobile service. i.e. maybe compatible with Straight Talk

This phone can be ROOTED with SuperOneClick, just as I as able to do last night.

Software appears to be very basic Android 4.1.1 without modifications.

Pressing Vol(-) + POWER gets you into some kind of Factory Test Mode

Pressing Vol(+) + POWER Gets you into Android System Recovery so Flashing Rom appears to be possible.

Angry
It uses Either a poorly coded upgrade from gingerbread, or a Themed version of gingerbread....

Pretty sure its the latter....

And has anyone had any luck with root and/or cwm.
Does anyone have the rom for this phone....


And any help in installing stock android 4.1.x?

Im pretty sure real jellybean has higher kernel version.
also can you go through the steps you used to get cwm on this little beast
Go click on the android version number... I get the gingerbread icon...

I've actually got the feeling that the phone we are looking at is this one http://www.mediatek.com/_en/01_produ...ro.php?sn=1056

I got the exact same phone... And i agree this is not 4.1.1 as it sas. More like the version of the SDK Android 2.3.3

Does anyone know if it possible to Extract the rom, upgrade it to 4.2 and flash it back?
