Haven't you previously asked that one?

Left i - status code is referring to network status details (route is valid, best route etc):
*>i - prefix learned from iBGP neighbor

Right i - origin code is referring to how prefix was advertised into BGP:
777 i - prefix originally learned via Interior Gateway Routing Protocol and advertised into BGP via network command
