Phone Rooting LAVA iris N400 and all iris series - A complete guide about root

I know so many of us tired of searching about rooting this awesome device Lava iris N400
For u guys this is the compilation of other works which are working for rooting and this is not my work...Thanks for the developers

completely checked on my LAVA iris N400 so dont worry it wont brick ur device and i have succesfully rooted and using link2sd app its awesome do it guys...............Happy Lava

step by step guide for newbees...

first step; first and foremost install the correct ADB drivers to ur computer for Lava iris N400 using pdanet software
http://www.topnotchtablets.com/installADBdriver
use the above link for installing ADB drivers

please exit the pdanet software from the system tray before start rooting because it will interfere with ADB

second step; root lava iris N400 using Root_script_by_Bin4ry_v17.zip
- Download and extract this zip file: http://www.mediafire.com/?wadbxnnxa8kf4b4
- Enable USB debugging on your lava iris N400. (Go to Settings > Developer Options > Check mark “USB Debugging” and then tap OK button.
- Now connect your lava iris N400 to your computer via USB cable. The drivers should be installed automatically (or use Pdanet to install drivers)
- Go to the folder named “Root_script_by_Bin4ry_v17″ and run the “Runme.bat” file. This should open the command prompt.
- Choose the Normal mode by typing ‘1‘ and hit Enter button from your keyboard.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the lava iris N400 rooting process. Your lava iris N400 will reboot during the process after which Bin4ry will copy some files to your device.
- When your phone is back ON, you should find the superuser SU app in your app drawer. If it’s there, your lava iris N400have been rooted!

third step; use link2sd to extend phone memory (dont worry about small internal memory u can install now alot more enjoy)
make a second partition ext2 on microSD and enjoy the app
http://www.xperiablog.net/2011/12/12...-limits-again/
use the above link for making second partition and using link2sd app

:vict ory:: victory::victo ry::victory

now enjoy ur LAVA iris N400 with more apps and dont worry about internal memory and now enjoy all benefits of rooting on LAVA iris N400
this procedure can also be used for rooting all the iris series devices such as iris 350, iris 501 etc,,,

Lava Iris 501 looks a re-brand of some Chinese model, may be some premium one.
The look and finish of the phone is Outstanding for Sure.

can anyone tell which is his forefathers so users can have more options to develop customized apps and Rom's for it.

Thanks a Lot for your detailed instructions, I've Just rooted My Lava Iris 501, using (Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v18-28-jan-13)
phone was purchased a Hour Ago
.

Now going to see if I am able to Backup the Current Rom, before i start loading up personalized stuff.

Thanks again.

Edit: I see this is Stock recovery, which will only allow "User data backup" and Now I need to Hunt for a method of Installing CWM recovery to be able to backup
complete ROM if possible.
