Recently, I tried to install a custom ROM of Android L (beta), which bricked my device (Canvas A1).

My device Neither boots nor able to go to recovery mode or fastboot.

Pressing power button or Power+Volume Up isn't booting anything.
My bootloader is actually unlocked.

So I tried to flash stock ROM using SP Flashing Tool and it downloaded successsfully.
But still not booting.

Is there any other way to unbrick it rather than going to Micromax Service Center??

Thanks in Advance

Thumbs up Problem solved!
Actually, I had used an old version of SP Tools which didn't support MTK6582 scatter configs.
Then v.5.1424 from http://forum.xda-developers.com/canv...as-a1-t2887150 helped me out and I successfully downloaded the stock ROM in meta-mode.

For users who encounter the problem:

First, Install VCOM drivers for MTK devices..
Then install Android CDC Gadget Drivers.

Download the KitKat stock ROM.. (See instructions there)
Use SP Flash Tools v5.1424 from there to download it.
Use both 'download' and 'firmware upgrade' modes to flash.

Other issues after flashing:
Also fixed IMEI issues using http://en.miui.com/thread-10061-1-1.html (Needs unlocked bootloader again)

Fixed Wi-fi error using http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2730486 (Needs root access)

Rooted KitKait using TWRP recovery and installed SuperSu 2.40 without bootloader unlock (doesnot void warranty if warranty present)

For users who encounter the problem:

To get warranty back by resetting flash counter, choose "Firmware Upgrade" in SP Tools, which will automatically lock bootloader and set flash_counter=0
You can check it by running the command "fastboot getvar all" in fastboot mode using ADB kit or tools in PC.

Also fixed IMEI issues using http://en.miui.com/thread-10061-1-1.html (Needs unlocked bootloader again)

Download the KitKat stock ROM..
Flash using latest SP Flash Tools v5.1548 (This is the latest version & highly recommended)
Use both 'download' and 'firmware upgrade' modes
