So, this is it! MICROMAX A52 has been rooted!!

(I dont own this device, i rooted it for my friends at Indiedevers, dont ask me device specific questions!)

Things you would be needing:

1. SP flash tool -> ver 2.1 (see attatched files!)
2. Download and extract my attatched a52 rooted.rar file.
3. Unlockroot (get it from www.unlockroot.com).
4. MTK drivers (see mtk attatchment on this xda post)
5. ADB drivers (No need to worry about, unlockroot will automatically setup the adb driver while rooting)

Ok so let's move on to the steps:

1. This rar file contains my modified boot.img & the A52 scatter file (needed by SP Tools, tells the SP tools which rom addresses to flash).
2. Install the MTK drivers, just run the InstallDriver.exe program inside the MTK folder).
3. Most of you might be experienced with flashing through SP Tools, for those who are using it for the first time read this excellent guide on how to use it -> MTK Flashing Using SP Tools
4. After flashing, reboot your handset by taking out and reinserting the battery.
5. When the phone boots up go to Settings->Applications->Development and tick mark "Enable Debugging".
6. Now attach your phone using the data cable.
7. Open Unlockroot program through windows start menu.
8. Click the big green root button.
9. It will ask for installing drivers, click "yes"...it's now installing the ADB drivers.
10. Finally it will root your phone and will ask you for rebooting the phone, click yes.
11. Let your A52 reboot.

Finally after booting, check the app drawer for an application "Superuser"...Congratulations!! your A52 is successfully rooted!!!...

bro congrats for the root please clarify if your rom can be unrooted if needed
also i cant find any ROM on FB page ... please give link

3. Most of you might be experienced with flashing through SP Tools, for those who are using it for the first time read this excellent guide on how to use it -> MTK Flashing Using SP Tools
4. After flashing, reboot your handset by taking out and reinserting the battery.

P.S. which option to select when flashing with SPflash tool please elaborate a bit
