I recently bought a phone from China. It's Star G9000, which is a Samsung Galaxy S5 clone, octa-core with MTK6592 chip.
Here is what I have done to root it.

System Specifications
Android 4.4.2 KitKat
MTK6592
2G RAM
16G ROM
Expandable with MicroSD

It worked for me, but that does not mean it will 100% work for you. You are responsible for any side effects and damage caused to your device, your property, anyone nearby, or yourself, which includes, but not limited to: software and/or hardware destruction of the device, robbery, riots, injury, death, acts of god, epidemics/pandemics, natural disasters, government shutdowns, mutations, getting a certain limb of your body stuck in a ceiling fan, etc. Rooting WILL void your warranty (if there is any).

  1. Download file "PDAnet_4150.rar", unzip it, and install "PdaNetA4150.exe". That's the drivers for your phone.

  7. Be sure that ONLY "RECOVERY" is checked and the location is pointing to file "MT6592_Android_scatter.txt".
  8. Now press the "Download" button.
  9. A warning will come up saying not all boxes are checked. Click ‘Yes’.
  10. Wait about 5 to 10 seconds.
  11. Attach your phone to the PC using a USB cable (do not turn on the phone yet), and you will see the progress bar at the status bar of the program changing values.
  12. Wait until a green circle icon appears on the SP_Flash_Tool program.
  13. When you see the green circle, close the program and dettach the phone.
  14. Turn on the phone. Congratulations, now you have CWM recovery that we will use to root the phone.

I've got it from Aliexpress. Go to the site a search for "755675732" without quotes.
The performance is excellent. It has MTK6592 chip which is 8-cores at 1.7 GHz.

The only thing you have to consider, is that the 3.5 mm jack that has, is not a REAL 3.5 mm jack. It's actually incompatible with any headphones I have ever have. The only headphones that works with this device, is only those that where in the original package.

Trying to follow your guide, but I can't get into recovery mode
Hi Georbe,
I think I have the same phone (everything match except I am not sure if the Android is KitKat)... Just in case, here is the link of my phone: goo.gl/Qhcf5T
My phone stopped to respond and I tried removing the battery. Next time I turned it on, it keeps in Welcome screen and never starts.
I wanted to tried your steps... but the thing is that I can't get into recovery mode (I have tried with a lot of buttons combinations)...Is there any way that I can accomplish the step 3 of 'Root the phone' in another way?
Sorry for my ignorance, I am very new on those kind of things.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have a problem when i try to install CWM recovery.
At the pass 11

I connect the phone but in the SP Flash Tool don't change any; change only "USB" in "searching" but not all (0%, zero time, ecc).
Why?
