    ALL CREDIT GOES TO BENALMIGHTY FOR FINDING THIS ROOT METHOD FOR 2.2.2 PHONES! ALL THANKS GO TO HIM.I JUST PUT THE FILES TOGETHER FOR EASE.

    DOWNLOAD THE 2.2.2 ROOT AND RECOVERY KIT

    RUN THE "RUN FIRST" BATCH FILE AND FOLLOW THE PROMPTS.

    usb debugging must be on with an sd card inserted and mounted.

    Select option A on the first screen and READ THE SCREEN AND MAKE SURE YOU DID WHAT IT SAYS TO DO!

    once its finished,you will be root w/ GINM custom recovery on 2.2.2!

    Feel free to download and flash my 2.2.2 stock DEBLOATED smooth ROM from HERE


    !!AND AGAIN,HUGE THANKS TO "BENALMIGHTY" FOR THIS FIND!!!
    !AND BIGGER THANNKS TO THE GUYS WHO MADE THE C++ ONE CLICK FOR US!

    HOW TO ENTER RECOVERY-turn phone off..while its off,hold vol down,home and power until the 4 buttons at the bottom light up..then release the buttons and it will boot into recovery.

    Alternate ways to boot into recovery include-Quickboot.apk (free on market)


    WARNING:I URGE YOU,AFTER ROOT/RECOVERY IS COMPLETE.GO STRAIGHT INTO RECOVERY AND MAKE A BACKUP!! I CANT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!


    VIDEO TUTORIAL THANKS TO "jerezer1985" FOR MAKING THIS VIDEO.MAKE SURE SURE TO THUMBS UP HIS VIDEO IF IT HELPED YOU OUT!

    It means new OM's that come with the 2.2.2 update wont have to downgrade to root their phones.

    I tried, and sadly (as I expected) ROMming brought back the reboot issue. Have to Yank the kernel from update and apply it to a custom ROM to see benefits.

    So I think I found my next project.

    It would work, but reboot problem returns.

    Mike, ill pull your kernel if its the unmodified updated 2.2.2 kernel. Otherwise ill take it from stick update. At this point, ill take stock CPU speeds and stable over OC and reboot daily.

    Sweet. This is what I wanted to see. ^-^ I'm glad the OM hasn't died, I don't have money for a new phone. Haha. Anyways, keep up the work.

    Just want to verify before attemping...

    Is this a root for 2.2.2 SW Version MS690ZV7 update that fixed the reboot issue? And without the addition of any custom rom's just bloatware removal, will the reboot issue return?

    Yes, this will root that version. The reboot issue should not return unless you flash the phone with a rom or kernel built for 2.2 or 2.2.1. The fix for the reboot issue required an updated kernel, which those roms do not have. Though, its safe to remove the bloat yourself, or flash Kelso's 2.2.2 rom. (which I might try) There is a few threads on this forum the explain which apps are safe to remove and which aren't. Anyways, good luck. :D

    I can't get the kitchen to repack the zImage into reppards CM7 ROM. Zip that comes out just wont flash on updated recovery in this pack.

    Nor will it flash in jonedys. :(

    Will keep at it though. I want stable CM7

    Hello,
    Please help out a newb and tell me what is an "OM"?:thinking:
