4.2.2 stock on a rooted phone
Use this thread for the files
Or you can use this one to flash zvc tot file straight to phone.
The second post as you read will give information I thought a bit more clear on Sprint.
@#***This will wipe your phone as in complete. Nothing will be left of yours. So copy anything off internal first@#***
Follow the directions, use ioroot25. Root.
If you want custom recovery.
Use auto-rec from above thread. Thank cloudyfa for putting that together.
If you reboot after and screen shuts off and you get white lines.
You might a well tot back to zvc and just root. @Cloudyfa
on that same thread is working out the details to fix.
