As preivious thread which was made by sayannayas that was flooded so freshing the whole section into one thread with updated insecure boot.img and with flashing updated stock rom.
original thread:- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2333647
before starting 1st read this:- i'm not responsible if any damage is done to your device.also if you flash your device using reasearch downloader then you will bump your imei(**you can revert your imei back which is given in this tutorial).
1)First Unlock the Boot IMG
as previous boot.img were v4 this is v5 (**fixed auto off)
download insecure boot.img from here :- http://www.mediafire.com/download/ya...img_for_v5.rar

(auto off fixed,camera improvment)
**(for windows 7 users only)
links for driver enforcement overrider:- http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/V...verrider.shtml
**(if you want using windows xp from windows 7 then use it)
link for virtual box:- http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/vir...-89960-Win.exe
(things which you needed)
1.windows XP (ps- for all drivers compatibilty) ( strongly suggested)
windows 7(currently not working)
**(note- you will this things...1.driver enforcement overridder for turn on test mood 2. you have to run reasearch downloader in admin mood)
you can use virtual box too to run windows xp
4. in device manager you need -ABD interface,two COM ports,two emulators
**(note-If any of this having yellow sign it will not work).
Ok now take a long breath beacuase you have to flash with your phone with a stock rom and modified boot.img for rooting.
Open research download
1.click on first button and load pac file
2.click on second button change baudrate to 115200,in calibration tab uncheck all.
3.For BOOT_IMG option browse and select the unlockedboot.img that you downloaded now.
4.plugin the usb cable(DON'T plugin the phone now)
5.click on play button
6.PRESS & HOLD VOLUME UP KEY and insert the usb cable,don't release the key.
Download should starts within 3 secs.If it doesn't then check the drivers carefully or reply to this thread with failures.
Once done unplug your phone and remove battery for 3 second.
7.Reinsert battery and restart your phone.
YES!! you have successfully unlocked the boot.img
2)installing cwm(optional-not required in rooting)
**(note you cant do full backup using cwm i will tell you after sometime how to do that)
1.Download .andriod.zip,extract it and save it under C:\Users\<computer name>\<paste it here>
2.From your phone got to application-->developer option-->enable usb debugging
3.Now plugin your phone through micro usb cable.
4.Download this zip ,extract and place "platform-tools" folder inside under c:/<paste it here>
5.download recoverey image from here :- http://www.mediafire.com/download/om...o/recovery.img
and palce it under c:/platform-tools
5.Open a command prompt type
Note:you will NOT be able to proceed further if this doesnt shows up.Double check the andriod.zip has adb_usb.ini file.
Now we will flash a custom recovery image in fastboot mode.REMEMBER,PROBABILITY OF BRICKING IS MINIMUM AS I HAVE ALREADY DONE ALL THE TEST FOR YOU GUYS !!!.STILL IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG DONT PANIC,JUST FLASH A FIRMWARE AS MENTIONED ABOVE(point 1) EVENIF YOUR PHONE IS TOTALLY DEAD .
C:\Android Multi tool>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
sending 'recovery' (10240 KB)...
OKAY [ 10.487s]
OKAY [ 3.425s]
finished. total time: 13.918s
7.Reboot your phone.
8.to go to cwm Open a command prompt type
cd C:\Android Multi tool
C:\Android Multi tool>adb reboot recoverey
**(note-you cant go cwm uding vol+power button in this v5 rom i dont know but hardware mapping button seems not working with cwm)
