Star B94M MT6589 aka B943 rooting

Just to be on the safe side, this about THIS phone:


Preface: 

For the MTK Droid Tools, you need ADB-Drivers. If they are missing, please install PDAnet frist.
For the SP Flash Tool, you'll need VCOM drivers, if you are having problems with it, check this out: CLICK

Download: 

This download contains the MTK Droid Tools, the SP Flash Tool, a patched Bootimage and a modded Scatter file: CLICK

Instructions: (The screenshots were taken when I had a different phone hooked up, don't mind that)

MTK Droid Tools: Create a scatter file:





Flashtool: Readback boot image and recovery image (sorry, I'm not going into details) :-(

 
MTK Droid Tools: Patch the boot image and recovery image (say no to CWM)


 MTK Droid Tools: ERROR: Recovery image can NOT be patched (ignore that):





 Text Editor: Edit scatter file, change

 "__NODL_FAT 0x94f80000" to "FAT 0x94f80000".

 Flashtool: Flash the patched boot image.

 MTK Droid Tools: Install SuperUser

Re-boot. done :-)

If you are "lazy", you can just flash MY patched Bootimage and  use the already modded scatter file ;-)

Thanks goes to tommy0815 for his help :-)

YOU ARE DOING ALL OF THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!
