Download CWM recovery from the OP. Download SuperSU too. Then do this.

adb reboot bootloader

The CWM recovery will be booted
Now choose install zip -> install sideload to sideload the SuperSU. And
adb sideload
You won't lose data you won't lose stock recovery, you won't lose anything. But you'll be rooted.

I did this and it seemed to work - thanks a lot. But nothing seems to happen. SuperSU complains that it has no SU binary when I try to run it. In adb shell, if I type 'su', there is no error message and 'su --help' displays the correct help. But I just get another shell with a '$' prompt. If I try to enter a restricted directory like /data, I get "permission denied" when I try to list it.
I tried doing it twice. Both times I got the "Root access possibly lost" message when I tried to reboot; once I said don't fix, the second time I said fix, but it made no difference.

What's happening? Thanks in advance

My phone is a Spice Dream Uno.

Update: I fixed this problem by downloading the latest version of SuperSU from the Chainfire site (not the one linked here) and using the Philz recovery rather than the one linked here. It worked fine after doing that.

Method 1:
  • Download SuperSU zip from here
  • Enter recovery
  • Go to Install zip --> adb sideload
  • Connect the phone to PC
  • Execute the following
    adb sideload

This will root your phone. There are more methods to root these devices, new methods will be added once I get my hands on my phone

Thanks to @droidextra for testing root and recovery for Canvas A1. You will be seeing a video walk through of all this from him soon
