What it contains......

** Adb, fastboot and other tools...
** Rooting CWM flashable zip file
$ Superuser 3.2
$ Su binary 3.1.1

Download link MMX_A100_Toolkit.7z - 20.51 MB

----> Important <----

Copy the android folder inside the "adb, fastboot tools" folder to the root of ur C drive

So now u have a folder like this C:\Android which contains adb.exe, fastboot.exe etc..

Driver installation -- Here

Troubleshooting

Now a method to flash recovery:

Prerequisites:

Copy the CWMrecovery6.0.img to the root of C drive, such that u have a file like this C:\CWMRecovery6.0.img


Method:

** Now open the command prompt "cmd"...

** Change to the directory
Android in the extracted folder of tools - "cd C:\Android\


** Type "adb devices"..
This will list phone something like this "7227****** device"
(If it doesn't see troubleshooting)

** Now type "adb reboot-bootloader"
Wait till the phone reboots into fastboot mode (just phone back lit blank screen)...

[If nothing happens, Remove your phone, Open the phone battery and put it back on
Then Switch on with "Vol Down + Power"
Then u should come to backlit screen]

** Now at this tym if u hav lost the device recognition, use the first post to update device driver again...

** Now type "fastboot devices"...
Again u shd see the device listing as u had got before...

** Now type "fastboot flash recovery C:\CWMrecovery6.0.img

Congrats u hav successfully flashed recovery!!!

** Now type "fastboot reboot"...


Rooting

** Copy the Root-CWM.zip in the package above to the root of ur sdcard

** Reboot into recovery

** Choose Install zip from sdcard > Choose from sdcard > Root-CWM.zip

** Wait till it finish

** Reboot!!!

Thumbs up help me plz..
I've some queries:

1) If i install CWM, it means in future i cant give my cell to service center ?
2) Can i install STOCK ROM if i dont like any new ROM?
3) From where i can get latest STOCK ROM with fixed CAMERA PATCH ?


Now i've some problems related to my own MMX A100 :

4) My sms/whatsapp tone changed to unknown after sometime and it only vibrates, also music player show zero files after 1hr. When i refresh then also its not able to show files. But i can view/play any music file via any file explorer. Where is the problem?
5) I'm not able to send long SMS.


I think i've bought this cell with oldest FW. I bought on 20 sept 2012. and there are few updates available in MMX FTP site, but i dont know how to use them. So kindly help me out.

I'm KOOL from TDF.

Welcome to xda!!!

1) If u install cwm and u want to revert back to the original recovery - just flash the original recovery.img (found in the stock rom zip/rar) using the same proceedure shown in 2nd post

2) Flashing the stock rom/ custom rom is at ur will flash whichever u want using the proceedure in the third post!!! Btw I haven't checked out the proceedure myself though its working for lot of ppl..

3) Same website as u told to me, actually that was thr only link I could find out in all google!!!

4) U may hav stored ur songs in internal storage (emmc folder)...
The stock app somehow doesn't recognize the songs there u vl just see the names in the playlist...

Soln - Use third party app, I use poweramp pro!!!

5) That long message problem seems a mixup by the mmx ppl..
Try third party messaging app like Go SMS...

I don't hav problem in sending long messages and I bought my phone on 14 aug!!!

Its working smooth just I can see my screen flikr at times...

That should fix it all bro, Don't forget to press the Thanx Button!!!

That ringtone mixup thing can be fixed by

Go to sound settings and select the ringtone which is in the internal system of ur phone...

Don't select the SD ringtones

Now go to message and whatsapp and from the settings make the ringtone as default ringtone...

But I hav heard that while u are using 3G on first sim, u have to disconnect all data, wifi and BT connections and then use the 2G sim, otherwise it doesn't work...

When u r using 3G data the 2G sim becomes unreachable...
