Lightbulb Micromax A45 ROOTED!! (MTK 6573)

So, this is it! MICROMAX A45 has been rooted!!

Things you would be needing:

1. SP flash tool -> ver 2.1 preffered (google it)
2. Download and extract my attatched .rar file.
3. Unlockroot (get it from www.unlockroot.com).
4. MTK drivers (download the attatchment from this xda post)
5. ADB drivers (No need to worry about, unlockroot will automatically setup the adb driver while rooting)

Ok so let's move on to the steps:

1. This rar file contains my modified boot.img & the A45 scatter file (needed by SP Tools, tells the SP tools which rom addresses to flash).
2. Install the MTK drivers, just run the InstallDriver.exe program inside the MTK folder).
3. Most of you might be experienced with flashing through SP Tools, for those who are using it for the first time read this excellent guide on how to use it -> MTK Flashing Using SP Tools
4. After flashing, reboot your handset by taking out and reinserting the battery.
5. When the phone boots up go to Settings->Applications->Development and tick mark "Enable Debugging".
6. Now attach your phone using the data cable.
7. Open Unlockroot program through windows start menu.
8. Click the big green root button.
9. It will ask for installing drivers, click "yes"...it's now installing the ADB drivers.
10. Finally it will root your phone and will ask you for rebooting the phone, click yes.
11. Let your A45 reboot.

Finally after booting, check the app drawer for an application "Superuser"...Congratulations!! your A45 is successfully rooted!!!...

Caution: You can softbrick your device if you play around much on "GOD MODE" (Superuser mode), know what you are doing and accept the consequences if you make your device unusable (although highly rare)..

ANY QUESTIONS?? DONT HESITATE TO ASK ME!! POST IT TO THE FORUM, NO PM!

EDIT: I HAVE ALSO ATTATCHED THE ORIGINAL BOOT.IMG OF THE A45 FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO USE THE STOCK BOOT.IMG!

New around here (xda-dev and Android hacking), so please be gentle if I ask a stupid question. Have read may recommendations that before flashing a new ROM, one should backup their current ROM and user-data, so that one can recover one's phone if it were to be bricked for some reason. However, looks like to be able to do that, you need to Root the device first. And this seems to be a vicious circle.

Wondering if some way of backing up original ROM exists, without needing to Root, and how did Sahil Deep / Indidevers manage to get the original boot.img !!

BTW, I am probably too sleep-deprived, because I cannot seem to find the "Thank" button !! Will definitely click it once I've had a chance to try out your method and succeeded. Until then (and until I find the darn button), please accept my gratitude.

Default Recovery console doesn't load

I followed the instructions you've given and have successfully rooted my Micromax A45! now the problem is, i manually flashed the clockworkmod recovery image onto RECOVERY using the SP Flash Tool v2.1 and when i try to boot into recovery mode, it gets stuck at the logo(Superfone PUNK logo) and doesnt go further. Pls suggest a solution. Many thanks!

Angry CWM recovery for Micromax a45

Hi,

I had earlier posted about a problem i had with clockworkmod on Micromax a45, and i'm really happy to say I have solved it! i edited the recovery.img file and replaced the cwm-kernel with the a45 stock recovery kernel and voila! it works perfectly! I have attached the custom recovery img which can be flashed using the SPF Tool. BTW, can anyone suggest any good custom ROMs for micromax a45? Thank you.
