    • Jay

      Can you please elaborate on the error you get?
      make sure to install CWM recovery via flashtool and then flash SU binaries via the CWM recovery.

        I dint get dat instruction in 2nd point dat transfer this file to the root of your sdcard.
        So can u xpln..??

      • Jay

        Copying to the Root of the SD card means copying the file into /sdcard and not inside any folder.

        You can wait for our post on rooting the canvas 2 without using a PC! Keep a track of our fb page > Facebook.com/techzei

      • Tushar

        I ve installd it…..its shwng in my control panel…….
        btw installing drivers means just instaling a file named Micromax driver A110 (x64) right….??

      • Jay

        Yes. If you’re running 64 bit of windows then you need to install this file. If you’re PC is running a 32 bit version, you need to install the 32 bit version of drivers.

      • Tushar

        Yeah i knw…..so i instald dat file…..bt still geting an error……

      • Jay

        Try it on a windows 7 x32 bit version. You won’t face any issues.

        dude help me I m struck on strock recovery n badly require root access to have cwm recovery so that I can install jb pre rooted rom

        help plzzzzzzzz//////////////////////

      • Aditya

        Hello there. I own a A110 and i m thinking of flashing a jelly bean ROM but i have read somewhere that old sim cards are not working!!?? is ti true???
        1 more thing i wanted to ask that how can i check whether my sim is 64k or 16k???
        the reason i m asking is that it was written that only 64k sim cards are working.
        PLZ PLZ PLZ help

      • Jay

        It depends on the ROM you’re currently using. If you are using the Cynus T2 ICS ROM you wont face any problem, if you’re coming from Stock Micromax ROM you will face sim 2 not working error. Anyways, it can be corrected by simply following our guide which is noob friendly. And, If you have a new sim (purchased recently) it is a 64k one, it would be mentioned on the SIM card.and, most of the sim cards that I tried are working.

    trying to root with the instructions above but not working….

  8. Puneet Vikram Singh

    while doing cmd getting a message -waiting for device and nothing happens

    • Tanmay Gandotra

      May be your mediatek preloader Mt65xx drivers are not installed
      if u r running win 7 64 bit switch of ur phone n remove the battery
      reinsert it. open device manager connect ur phone to pc in switch off state.
      there in device manager u will c unknown driver Mt65xx pompt up.
      press update driver manually n browse for mobistel under programfiles
      this may help u….
      if ur drivers are updated you cN c then in ports section as it happens for a second .

    • Apoorva Mehrotra

      1’St if you want to root search google for MTK 6577 Drivers 32/64 bit (check your OS for this)
      Second allow installation of unsigned drivers. (Refer youtube how to do this as per your OS)
      You should not see any ! (yellow) mark in system manager / device manager in front of MTK 6577 driver which you just installed after enabling installation of unsigned drivers.
      Once this is done, The method mentioned above should work if not then let me know i can tell you how to root using the flash tool but that is a lil tricky but works hundred percent. You will be able to port CMW / TWRP recovery which gives better access for porting any custom ROM on your MMX Canvas A 110 …

  9. Apoorva Mehrotra

    Finally did it friends. Well i will not say the method is incorrect but
    it is a lil tricky to understand what recovery to select.

    Many guys who cannot go to CMW, you might need to flash TWRP recovery
    because the recovery file which is linked in this is not working for
    me. I tried TWRP, it worked perfecto. For those who are waiting at the
    RED bar, and then nothing happens, please install the correct USB driver
    for your phone which MTK 6577; Search for this in google. 2’ndly in
    Your windows operating system you need to disable “Signed driver
    Installation”; disable this only then you will be able to work it out
    perfectly. On installting unsigned drivers please search google or view
    in your tube how to install any unsigned driver. YOU CANNOT FLASH UNTILL

    Also you can very well skip step # 6 & 7 on droidser. Simply click download
    -> Connect Phone -> Switch off the phone -> Wait for green ring
    thingy -> Once done, reboot in recovery -> Wallah you are in LEWA
    Recovery. -> Install whatever ROM / FLASH / ROOM Etc etc

    Let me know if any more troubleshooting needed. glad to help you

    thanks in advance..

    • Jash Jacob

      You should goto to recovery mode and wipe all. And reinstall the ROM. Note that you will lose all your data.

  15. rahul

    sir i just root my canvas 2 running official jelly bean ,i am having signal problem ,signal comes and goes away plz help me ,i had cwm mode can i try any jelly bean rom available in xda

    • Jay

      Rooting is no way related with signal being dropped.
      Yes, you can try custom ROM’s From XDA.
      For a minimal and fast experience, use Techzei’s ROM.
