hey dude..micromax a56 is the clone of coolpad a7019. see this.
http://s8.taobao.com/search?spm=a23...l&m=parm&cat=1512&ad_id=&am_id=&cm_id=&pm_id=

Micromax A57 has 1ghz processor rather tha 800mhz so it can't be the clone of coolpad a7019 cuz it has 800mhz processor.

What name do you get when you connect your device to pc in fastboot mode.(fastboot devices)>>> it will be the clone of your device.
I got the name of coolpad a7019 when i connected my device in fastboot mode to pc.

Device Bricked !! Flashed Stock ROM of Micromax Ninja A87 on Micromax Ninja 3 A57

Flashed Stock ROM of Micromax Ninja A87 on Micromax Ninja 3 A57

Well When I changed Folder Properties of '/phone/system' Folder as RW-R-R using SE File Manager my MMX A57 got crashed after Reboot.
It directly lead me to Recovery Interface on reboot.
I used Wipe user data/Factory Reset.
Data wiped successful but cant lead me to Factory Reset option.

I thought of Flashing Custom ROM of A57 but
but ihave mistaken and flashed A87 Custom ROM and all it end up into Crash/SoftBrick.
No what I can see on my screen is as below...(splash Bluish screen with particle like blinking)



Please help me out to restore my Micromax Ninja3 A57.
It was Rooted. SU/Busybox/Link2SD/Titenium Bckup/SE File manager Installed with Root Access.
Was in USB debugging Mode (ADB not working)

Issue Solved: (My friend had this Issue: Got Million 'Thanx' in person !!!):highfive::cool::highfive:
Used Fastboot erase options-->Flashed Stock Recovery & Other partitions but failed at 'system' mount using fastboot-->Reased all partitions except Recovery-->Assumptions Worked--->Flashed using Recovery Boot-->Nothing on screen-->one time Vol- and then 2 times Power button (that allowed flashing Stock ROM from SD card)-->Hurrrah !!! Done !!!

@azhar2k7: First u understand problem-->you get solution.
The only problem is enabling your PC to communicate with your Android. If you using Windows XP you have to place adb.usb.ini file (choose the right one-as it has got modified as per need of various devices as well. You can find d Specific attached here)

1. Install Drivers for Micromax A57 (I guess you already had on your PC).
Check 'Android Composite ADB Interface' must be listed under Androd Devices in your Device Manager, while connected in USB debugging mode.
2. Download the attached Android ADB USB driver. Put the 'adb.usb.ini' into your Android-SDK directory i.e. in platform-tools (folder) where you must find 'adb'.exe and 'fastboot'.exe as well.)
3. Place the same adb.usb.ini in .Android folder in Documents and Settings in C:\
4. Now (Must) Reboot your PC
5. Now connect Device using USB cable in 'USB Debugging-Enabled' Mode and let all the drivers load. Confirm 'Android Composite ADB Interface' now be listed under Androd Devices in your Device Manager. Done.
6. Now open Command Prompt using run cmd (follow below example)

Now as if your SDK directory is: C:\Android-Sdk/Android/platform-tools

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.


C:\Documents and Settings\XperiaTipoDual>Cd Android-Sdk/Android/platform-tools (HIT ENTER)

C:\Android-SDK\sdk\platform-tools>
C:\Android-SDK\sdk\platform-tools>adb devices (HIT ENTER)
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
Micromax-A57 device


C:\Android-SDK\sdk\platform-tools>exit


Now your are done with your preparation.

1. To Root A57 Install & Run Unlockroot
2. Click ROOT
3. If will say Your phone is already rooted-IGNORE and click YES
4. Process will complete and your MMX A57 is now a Rooted device.
