I tried following the tutorials
here : http://kalyani-786.blogspot.com/2013...n-one-rom.html
and here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2466694

but I had the same issue both times.
When I connect the phone (switched off) it connects (I can hear the sound) and then disconnects (again the sound) and starts charging.

I used the PdaNet+ drivers, the drivers of canvas hd (a116), and many others (Names of all the drivers further below the thread)

I tried using a different cable,removing the battery, different USB ports, multiple PC's, and 64bit versions of Windows 7, and windows 8/8.1, still, had the same issue..

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

What I did :
Open the SP flash tool (with admin permissions)
Load the scatter file
Check the box that says 'DA DL All With Check Sum'
Hit download
Connect the phone (switched off)
Now the issue starts, it connects, then disconnects, and starts charging.
The flash tool, it just keeps on searching for my phone.

Other Drivers I tried :
Micromax A116&A240 Drivers (from XDA)
a116_driver (from Micromax India download section)
AdbDriverInstaller (from XDA)
MTK6589_PdaNET_ADB_VCOM_Drivers (from the first tutorial link above)
PDAnet_4150 (from PDA website)
PdaNetA4126 (from PDA website)
MyPhoneExplorer_Setup_1.8.5 (someone referred)

Then this is definitely a driver problem...
If you tried multiple drivers then post your OS and problem here and help will be there at your rescue...

My phone just keeps disconnecting and re connecting to the PC when I try to connect it with the battery, sim, and sd card taken out. (also holding the vol+ button)
Also, can you upload the file to mediafire? TrustFiles has a lot of **** between the file and the user...

CHECK OUT THE NEW WIN 8.1/8/7 64 bit DRIVERS DIRECT BACKUP FROM A WORKING WIN8.1 64BIT INSTALL
BUT MAKE SURE TO: Disable Driver Signature Enforcement (google it exactly like this for instructions)
NOTE: This may show an attention mark in Device Manager. Completely ignore that!
