Using Flash Tools to Flash CWM Recovery to A350

Canvas Knight A350 CWM+Root

Requirements:
CWM Recovery
Flash Tool
A computer
A Micromax A350 (obviously)



Steps To Follow:-

  1. Install all drivers for your phone (Please find the attached "A350_USB_Drivers.zip").
  2. Download "recovery.img" (CWM 5.5.0.4) and "MT6592_Android_scatter.txt" file to any temporary folder.
  3. Extract and open the SP Flash Tools.
  4. In SP Flash Tools, click on Scatter-Loading and the program will ask you the location of the scatter loading file for your device.
  5. Select the file "MT6592_Android_scatter.txt" which we already downloaded at step 2.
  6. Check only recovery.img and uncheck all others. Click on "recovery.img" file and set it's location to our downloaded "recovery.img"(CWM) file
  7. Switch off your phone (wait for 10-12 sec).
  8. In Flash Tool, Click the Download option and the flash tool will start looking for your phone.
  9. Connect your phone now. The Flash Tool will start the flashing process, the progress of which can be viewed from a yellow progress bar at the bottom of the flash tool.
    ***Don't interrupt this process as it can potentially brick your device.
    ***Make sure no power interruption takes place. (Use a laptop to ensure this).
  10. After the process completes, a green ring will appear on your device signalling that the process was successful.
  11. Disconnect your phone.

Let me know if I can help or assist you for anything.. Although I have made a video for flashing the Kitkat nd CWM on Knight Will publish that here.

Make sure you add features to change the font size and custom fonts in rom. And remove Micromax bloatware

Could you please write down the bloatware list here ? so that i can remove them from our upcoming custom ROM.
BTW - I'm planning to release this build with pre-installed xposed framework+GravityBox [KK]. With no more major changes at this time....

Here are the programs that I dont like and I think should not be there on the phone.
1.) All the micromax apps as they are not full apps and really badly made and ask for Rs. 99 Each. I mean come on if I approach XDA will I be aying 99 for each app. Grow up Micromax

2.) Spuul ( no one uses that)

3.) BBM (Blackberries are no more tasty now)

4.) Facebook ( it shuld be a user app as this gets updated and eats away 40 Mb)

5.) Games that micromax gives in trial and asks for money for like where's my perry. and water

6.) RegistTest (It will register your phone everytime you restart it and will spend 3 Rs everytime)

7.) Truecaller ( It should also be user app)

8.) Whatsapp ( same reason)

9.) Hike ( why shoulld we look forr something that is not whatsapp)

10.) A very irritating Micromax homepage from the Browser which was almost impossible for me to remove.

11.) Brandfusion Ringtone ( Its very irritating)

12.) MIcromax Launcher which behaves like its not on FHD screen but on 240*320 Screen, Gigntic Icons and no customization.

13.) The very cheap G and 3G icons from the status bar. Looks like we do not know which network we are on and Micromax came in like a charm to save our souls. Hell.

14.) Reduce the font size it looks like I am wearing my GrandPa's Glasses.

15.) Add option to change the font size to tiny like it is in Samsung.

16.) Kingsoft Office( It will spoil your tables in document, Better use Quick Office it wil give you dditional 10 Gb space on Google Drive)

In Short try to keep it as much android as you can. Better like Nexus 5

I have no idea about this..... not tested !! But this is what about the ROM theme apk. We need some more extra dependencies to become it works.

BTW - For Canvas Knight A350 Custom ROM, you can download mod kitkat from here:

[This is A350 mod ROM which I found till date. I'm working on it with more customization and publish it soon :P]
