[SOLVED] Rooting Chinese Star I9100 2.3.6 (MTK6573)

I've had this inexpensive phone for about a month now, and the only reason I'd want root access is to install Titanium Backup or a firewall to freeze/block access to a certain Chinese Android Market app. The app in question sends out a notification to feature new Chinese apps everytime the phone is given internet access and there are no options to disable it within the app itself. And since it came with the phone, it cannot be uninstalled, and of course, it restarts immediately if stopped.
