Hey friends am Ajai and I own mmx a72 , as of you guys I too faced problem due to low internal memory , so don't worry here's the solution for your problems.

The following methods are collected from the internet but I personally tested these methods on my own mobile and they are working great.

How to ROOT mmx a72


1. First of all download and install the drivers for your mmx viva a72 from the link below.
2. Now for the rooting download e-root from the link below.

3. After installing
  • Connect your phone via cable
  • Enable Unknown sources
  • Enable usb debugging and Allow mock location (Setting -> Applications -> Development)
  • Double click eroot.exe in your PC
  • Connect your mmx a72 phone to pc via USB it should look like this


4. Now click the ROOT button

5. Wait for few seconds after the process is completed , check your mobile and you would see SuperUser installed in your mobile



6. Hurrey!! now you have successfully rooted your mmx a72 mobile.

7. To check that your mobile has been rooted download the following apk to confirm

One more thing the recovery can't be acessed by using volume keys.
It is only accessing through rom manager.
Plz help me to boot into recovery using keys in mmx a72
