If you are facing the same or similar problems as this:

I'm currently on MIUI, I want to switch back to the sock rom of Canvas 4.

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...

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!

Driver problem solved

I had the same problem, phone connecting then disconnecting.
Here is a solution for the problem.
1. Install latest drivers
2. Disconnect phone
3. Open SP Flash Tool
4. Select Scatter-loading and select the files required
4. Now here is the trick, in SP Flash Tool, go to ACTION > DOWNLOAD
5. Connect the phone (which should be switched off)
