Samsung Stratosphere Rooted Already

Did anyone purchase the Samsung Stratosphere when it was released two weeks ago? If you did, know that you can now root the lil’ guy and attempt to have even more fun with your LTE speeds and physical keyboard. The instructions look massive and are not for just any casual hacker though. You need adb, Heimdall or Odin, and to follow the entire process that is listed at the source link below.

If only rooting could add a second processor, Super AMOLED Plus screen, and 1GB of RAM, this would be really hot.

    Frustrating that the first 4G LTE phone on Verizon with QWERTY is so…. lackluster. Even for “free” right now on Newegg’s wireless store I still can’t talk myself into finally upgrading from my Droid 1 due to the lack of RAM and lack of HDMI on this. Sad.

    I will say however that rooting this doesn’t look that hard really.

    Well damn I say, this Stratosphere is a fine specimen for the $! I checked it out the other day and the screen is beautiful and overall nice looking for a slider…4G speed test wow, very fast. Think it’ll be good for a person’s first smartphone, like my dad.

    I had this phone for 4 hours before I returned it. It was locking up and freezing doing just about anything (search online, someone posted a video). Makes me question the Nexus. Samsung should have never let this thing out the door. They must have really really back QC dept.

      Samsung lets a lot of junky phones out their door. I don’t think they even have a Quality Control department. Its also slow because of the outdated processor and poor memory management.

  • Fail. No phone has two processors. A second CORE.

  • Tim

    This is a solid phone, but could be better if it had dual-core.  Either way, G-Nex trumps it and will see updates because its a Nexus and not a Touch-Wiz 

  • Nerdydesi

    I would absolutely buy this device in a heartbeat if it had a dual-core processor, 1gb of ram and the newer SUPER AMOLED+ screen.

    I love slider phones!

    Hey, this isn’t the Galaxy Nexus!!

  • funny thing is i would honestly buy this phone over the droid razr. i refuse to support motorola and their crappy stance towards their users.

      Yes, Because the Droid Charge by Samsung has lived up to it’s expectations for customers. 

      • Booboolala2000

        I have a Droid Charge and it is pretty bad. No Gingerbread, Fail, knew that when I bought it. Selling it and putting the money towards the Nexus. No more update nightmares.

  • Anonymous

    I dont get how this thing gets 2.3, and yet the charge is sitting with 2.2 still….just amazes me why the Nexus is so important to have. 

    • it’s so important because things like you just mentioned will NEVER happen.

    • Dominick DeVito

      I agree – my wife’s Charge is basically DOA – she’s pissed and I can’t blame her. VZW keeps telling her no update planned. Insane. I expected more from a Droid branded device.

      Welcome to Samsung’s update history. 🙂

      • Jarred Sutherland

        Yup, Samsung has a really bad rep (deserved though) for not updating their devices. When they do, you tend to get stuff like the problem with the Fascinate and missed calls/sms messages. 

        Quality stuff.

      same thing with htc and moto. I mean the razr will have 2.3.5 yet the bionic wont. If it isn’t a nexus be prepared to wait awhile for updates.

  • Dominick DeVito

    Yup and all 3 people who own them will rejoice
