Please guide us to root micromax a87 it is a quite good hardware just the ram is too less ie 256 and also the internal memory, i just want to root it to get rid of the extra internal memory occupied by existing rom and to tweak the rom for extra free ram, because some of the games shutdown while opening up ..that is maybe because of less ram...i hav tested asphalt 7 in this thing it works well but not the games like cut the rope,

Worked games: Asphalt 7, skaterboy, Wheres my water, fruit ninja

Not working: temple run, cut the rope, Angry birds !! all editions (after downloading from play store it says package invalid)

Other issues: very less multitasking, apps do not remember the last state while resuming,

Lets take the first step towards rooting, i got this screen while i tried to go into the recovery screen connecting it to pc and pressing Volume up + Power,


i had no idea what to do, the options can be highlighted using volume keys and select with power key, i chose to reboot and it started normally.
While in pc it detects the device micromax a87 as a cdrom drive

i also downloaded the drivers which i got on micromax site - download
they have some intresting stuff i didnt played wd them yet

Any further requests please let me know

What do you mean by extracting the usb.ini file inn your step "4". i mean its just a text file. hw can we extract it. the drivers of the phone are successfully installed and "Android Composite ADB Interface" is showing in the device manager but still "adb devices" command is not showing the connected phone. USB Debugging is enabled.

thanx... i updated my default adb_usb.ini file with the values provided in the file you attached. it has worked now .. thnx a lot.. but i have a question now. It was mentioned in the default file that we should use "android update adb" command and should not edit the file. i tried the command and got the result that adb updated successfully and i restarted the server by first killing it and then starting it again. but the default adb_usb.ini did not update itself with the vendor id. now i entered the values given in the file provided by you and it worked.. so the ques is what if we dont know the vendor ID's .. why is not the command not working properly and updating the values..
even there are 6 IDs in the file provided by you.. are all of those values are necessary or we can delete the unnecessary 5 values (i'll find out that).

i'll appreciate if you can help providing the answers.. these ques are troubling me..
anyway.. thanx a lot for the help provided by you.. i can test my apps on my phone now.. no need of running the emulator.. also i can root my phone..

my email id is india.vikrant@gmail.com. my name is Vikrant... please drop a dummy mail in my inbox
