Resurrection Remix 5.7.3 for Micromax Canvas L A108



This is the first ever custom rom developed for the Micromax Canvas L a108 phone that was released in the year 2014 and I definitely think that there are many people who are desperate to get a single custom ROM made for this phone as soon as possible because it has Android KitKat as the last update on this phone and the phone is now aging so to keep the support on I have ported this wonderful Resurrection Remix 5.7.3 for this phone

What's working

Everything that I have tested to my knowledge in the 7 days.

People can definitely post the comments regarding the performance and all other issues in the comments but I have just ported it from the excellent guide made by Ajit Guraya


Instruction to flash the custom ROM

1. make sure to make a nandroid backup before you start doing this because there is always a possibility that everything can go wrong,so it is better to have a backup
2.Boot into the custom recovery (CWM, TWRP, CTR, any other recovery )(the link of the TWRP recovery is now provided )
3.Do a complete clean wipe off the data, cache, system
4.Now head towards the location in which you have stored the file preferably in the SD card so that you don't lose that file while wiping off your data.
5.Now go to install the zip file of the ROM and then the Gapps package.
6.Now reboot.

Booting for the first time it will definitely take some time because install the required packages so wait for some minutes the phone will automatically boot and you will be guided through the initial settings


And voila! you have a brand new Android Marshmallow install on your Micromax Canvas A108

N.B-Installing custom rom you may feel that you have a very shortage of memory so please before doing this stuff you can always go to this thread mentioned below to increase your system partition to 5 GB instead of the normal 1.25 GB so that will get enough space for your applications
https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...108-l-t2867010

But remember if you use the CWM recovery mentioned in that forum then it is not compatible with the new Android Marshmallow custom ROM,What I am suggesting you to just use the EBR files to expand the storage only



Here is the download link for the custom ROM.

Now the TWRP recovery is completely fine and ready to be flashed

Download link-https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx7...w?usp=drivesdk

Thank you master Pratik Rawat for your kind help in getting a TWRP recovery right.

Some notes:

1.Regarding the expansion of the storage if anybody wants to expand the storage with the help of the external SD card then I am sorry that it is not possible because it is a bug in the CyanogenMod 13 upon which our ROM is based do this is one of the prime feature of Android Marshmallow but I regret that is not possible due to the problem from the source.

2. If anybody wants to expand the internal storage then that is possible by the help of the EBR files mentioned in the another forums whose link is given in this post but I want to mention that that is not possible to flash by using the TWRP recovery because it is not having the flashable format so the users have to use the SP Flash tool in order to get that..

To flash TWRP recovery in phone I suggest to install the flashify after rooting the phone with the king root in the Android KitKat.

Please use to TWRP recovery mentioned in the forum instead of the CWM recovery that is mentioned in the another forum because only this recovery is compatible with the Android Kit Kat and above.


3. If any user faces the problem of wiped IMEI then you have to go back to the KitKat by using the format all + download option in the SP Flash tool and then use the MTK engineering mode to write the IMEI.


Update: regarding the Restoration of the IMEI master Pratik Rawat has deviced a method to flash the IMEI number for this everybody is required to flash the package using TWRP recovery after the installation of the custom ROM-
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MXz...w?usp=drivesdk

THEN AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL INSTALLATION USERS CAN INSTALL THE CHAMELEON APP AND WRITE THEIR IMEI NUMBER EVEN ON THEIR NEW CUSTOM ROM.
The link to download the application-
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VP3...w?usp=drivesdk

I hope for now this much of the information can be useful as of now and further more discussions will be happening as more people will be installing the rom and finding more doubts.

I will be more than happy to help.

Regarding your request to make a video on the process I think I cannot do at the time because I don't have the device right now and for the open gapps you may refer to the smallest package available that is the Pico one for android 6.0.1

If you try to install the custom ROM without having any custom recovery I mean you are trying to install with the stock recovery then you are going to get the same message because it will not allow any installation of foreign software into the mobile

That is the problem that I have mentioned in the main post that I don't have the recovery image with me at the current time because I have lost it and I am not able to do the same thing because my current PC is not taking the parameters correctly.

I need someone to do that for me as it is a very automated process so anyone can do that and see it.

Sorry for this lacunae in the post but at the current time I cannot do anything for the custom recovery for this phone but what I can guarantee you that this custom ROM is perfectly fine for this mobile because I am already use that with my previous custom recovery which I have lost now.
