    unlock root doesn’t work it says cant get root access..

    • It does work. I have already attached the picture as you can see above. It shows that Root Checker has verified the Root access. Here’s one more screenshot. Just make sure you follow the process as its written here.

      • amitk

  • Ramji

    • Make sure the phone is connected to PC and you have enabled USB Debugging. To enable USB Debugging Settings->Applications->Development and check USB Debugging.
      You are missing some step as many has successfully rooted the device as you can see by the comments below.
      Best of luck.

  • Lav

  • Shahbaz

    plzz there is a problem in downloading the adb drivers.i click root then it asks to download the drivers but after sometime it again starts killer and starting the adb server plzzzzzz help

    • Looks like UnlockRoot has some problem with your and Ramji’s PC Config. Why don’y you try this on another PC?
      You can see that people have successfully rooted the device using the same method.
      I’m not really sure what’s wrong.

  • Shahbaz

    same as Ramji

  • Shahbaz

    not working on different pc also i tried on dell vostro 15 is it because of windows 7 same thing occuring plzz help yaaaaar i followed every step which u have written can u plz upload the adb drivers

    • I’ll try to find the ADB drivers.. If I found them I will upload for sure. Try installing on a 32 Bit desktop.

    • Post updated. Download the ADB Drivers Installation Package. Click “Install This Driver Anyway” when you are prompted.

  • Blizz

    I am getting this error while flashing this phone

    • Double click the BOOTIMG text to select the Boot.img

    • Try the XDA method to get the ADB drivers man.. You can see that people have easily rooted their A52s.
      PS: I have censored your mobile number.

  • Raj

    I am facing the same peoblem as Ramji.. everything is good except this…

  • Blizz

    Thank you it actually worked.. Ujjwal Kumar..

  • Shahbaz

    the link for adb drivers u gave is for 64 bit but i m on 32 bit…….!!!!!!!

    • Instead of Unlock Root you can use Superoneclick

      • Shahbaz

        tried not responding….!!!!!!!

        • Then I think there’s something wrong with your system or you did not followed the tutorial correctly. Try it on some friend’s PC. You can see that many people have easily rooted their devices.

  • Shahbaz

    what will happen if i flashed rooted boot.img 3 to 4 times

    • Don’t know.. never tried.

      • Shahbaz

        OK if u hav original boot.img than upload it i will try to root from starting
        Thanks for ur GREAT REPLY MAN……..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Trying to help every possible way I can 🙂
          You can download this ZIP and extract the boot.img from here. I don’t have the exact boot.img right now.

          • Shahbaz

            i dont hav an account on 4shared it is asking me to login
            upload on mediafire

          • Just sign up using your Facebook account. You will be able to download with it as well.

          • Shahbaz

            why its size is so big 142MB…..!!!!!!!!

          • It is the full stock ROM of MMX A52. I was about to post about it after a few days and a way to restore A52 to Stock ROM.
            Just download it and extract the Boot.img

          • Amitk

            hi Ujjwal thnx , i have successfully rooted my A52 & really vry happy with some free internal memory using link2 SD & by deleting some unwanted apps like mibuddy & weather (btw. can u suggest some more ways to free up internal memory ?)…….my question is about this stock Rom for A52 , why would i need it in future if i do, & how do i use this ..thnx

          • Great. Looks like you are absolutely enjoying your rooted device.
            I don’t own the device so cannot suggest on how you can clear more memory. Keep in mind. Do not delete the mlabs launcher. You will be doomed then. I’ll soon write a post on restoring your A52 to stock ROM. You can subscribe to email feeds to stay tuned.

  • Try superoneclick. If its not working then try on Windows XP if it doesn’t works either.. then you can try on a 32 bit desktop of your friend or someone. I don’t understand why some people are facing this problem while many others are happily rooting their devices.

  • aksaga

    can u plz upload video of rooting micromax a52

    • aksaga

      i m new 2 android so its difficult for me plz HELP?

      • Sorry its not possible to make a video tutorial but I’ve written this tutorial in simplest possible manner. You will never learn anything until you take risks. Try yourself. If you get stuck somewhere just ask. I’ll help you.
        And don’t worry this will not brick your phone.

        • aksaga

          Thanks i have rooted my a52, now i want to ask is there cmw recovery for a52 or any new custom roms?

          • No CWM as of now. Devs are working hard to get CWM working on A52.

          • aksaga

            i have heard that cwm v5 is working in a52

          • Yes.
            I will post a tutorial tomorrow. Stay tuned.

          • aksaga

            can we install galaxy duos Rom in a52 because both phone config is same is it possible plz reply

          • Amitk

            hi aksaga .. may i know which operating system u used to root your A52 , is it win 7 or XP, 32 or 64 bit ? thnx

          • aksaga

            win7 ultimate 32bit

  • Hi Ujjwal, thanx a lot…I can root my device 🙂
    next requriement -: I wanted to install custome recovery in my device (micromax A52). From where can I find CWM recovery image for my device?

    • Glad you are enjoying your rooted phone. Custom recovery is not yet available. Stay tuned to the website. I’ll update as soon as I find a way.

  • ramana

    This works great and am very happy with my rooted phone. I would love to increase the RAM by enabling swap but swapper for root and swapper2 does not work until our kernel inbuilt support for swap partition. So is it possible for us to get a custom kernel that supports swap partitions. Thank you so much for your efforts.

    • I don’t really see that happening. Micromax is not releasing the kernel sources for its devices so making up a custom kernel is really tough.

  • hey ujjwal bro…..pls tell me hw can i backup my current ROM….yes m rooted

    • xxCodeRx

      Will post a method to flash CWM today.

  • Sarthak Choudhury

    will flashing should i on the usb debugging

    • Your phone should be turned off while flashing with SP Flash Tool.

      • Anubhav

        hey ujjwal!
        I finshd d flashin process bt wen i clik on ROOT in UNLOCK ROOT……it repeatedly asks fr instalin d drivers even though i hav a cnstant internet connection……can u help me…??

  • anup

    Hi ujjwal bro, I have given u what I did to root and where I hanged and u have to help me to complete the remaining steps 1. I click on sp flas tool 2.scatter loading the scatter file from the extracted folder 4. Tick on bootimg 5. Click on bootimg and after dat where to click? I found mtk, spflash, unlock root when I clicked on bootimg. Actually it asks me the path. What will be the path Please bro help me I m new on anroid so unable to solve this kind of task alone.

    • Hello Anup
      Path is where your boot.img is stored. For example, if you have saved your boot.img on desktop, you can select it in SP Flash Tools by browsing to desktop and then choosing the file.

      • anup

        After flashing the phone can I root it by using updatezip or I need to follow your rules. I m confuse becoz someone posted that unlockroot ask internet connection to download

        • You need to follow my method or your phone will be bricked.

        • anup

          Plz dont mind bro, I m asking u so many questions. Actuall I dont have pc so I have to go to my frend’s home and I cofirmed that he has windows7 32 bit pc. Shall I achive the root access through this pc? Any suggestions bro… I m ready to take any risk just believing on u

          • There is no risk at all if you follow this method. And yes, this can be done at your friends PC running on Windows 7 32 Bit.
            Also, you can install ClockWorkMod recovery on your device which is useful in taking backups and installing new ROMs.
            Here’s how you can Install ClockWorkMod on Micromax A52 Aisha.

  • anup

    Hi bro should I backup all data in recovery mode before going to root. One more ques bro… my friend also wanted to root this phone by this method but he faild in last step I mean when he opened the unlock root folder and attached the phone after flashing it asked to download something. He had no internet connection so he failed. Please bro any other method to root after flashing. Unlock root may not be work in my phone also, so I need an another option if I fail too.

    • Internet connection is needed for getting root via UnlockRoot. Also, I don’t recommend using this method for your friend until his phone is MMX A52. Any other device can be bricked.

      • anup

        We access internet through data cable and if internet connection requir then how it will be possible at a sametime. Plse give me how can I connect to internet when unlock root will ask to connect

        • Well you have to find a way to connect to internet.

  • Abhay

    hii iam facing that problem help me please(same as Shahbaz) iam using win7 64x

    • Try SuperOneClick if still fails then try on a 32 bit PC.

      • Abhay

        Thanxx bro it worked on windows xp. Can u suggest some custom ROM.

        • There is no Custom ROM right now. Stay tuned to our website so that you can know if we update in future.

  • anup

    will superoneclick work instead of unlock root? if it works then which version

  • anup

    Hi bro…. I m going to root my a52 today but one last ques… I watched how to use superoneclick in youtube. In some videos they mentioned about installing driver. Now the ques is which driver I should pick for superoneclick and also for my a52? Shall I flash this phone before using superoneclick or without flashing it will work? Please bro answer me in details

    • All the steps will remain the same except the one that involves UnlockRoot.

      • anup

        I have flashed my phone successfully on 32bit xp pc. But superoneclick rar folder has virus issue but still I have tried still window cant open it. I have downloaded an another zip version of superoneclick. Lets see.. I wana ask u that has my phone been flashed for forever or I should flash it again? Answer me bro I m on the way.

        • Your phone has been flashed. No need to flash again. Also, try turning off any Anti virus installed before using SuperOneClick.

  • anup

    I could not root my device bro so I m sad. After flashing anything change in my phone?

    • No, nothing major has changed. You are just running on an insecure boot.img but its ok.
      I think you should try on a PC with proper internet connectivity.

  • Jayanth Acharya

    My main motivation for rooting A52 is to free up space taken up by apps that I don’t intend to use, to install some other apps that I am interested in.

    Can someone suggest a list of software that I can remove safely ? I’d prefer to replace the default launcher with ADWlauncher, and remove the likes of ToI, mStore, miBuddy, Aisha. Can this kind of app removal lead to any problems ? If there are more apps that I can remove safely that’d be great. Eventually, I’d install Link2SD anyway.

    • Don’t remove the default launcher. Use some other launcher on it.. I’ve seen people running into trouble after deleting the default mlabs launcher.

      • Nibin

        i installed the mtk drivers provided by you but unlockroot was showing no device found. im using windows xp sp3 . i also tried it on my friend’s win 7 pc but it showed the same message. Please HELP!!!!!!

  • Abhay

    my mobile is stuck on the micromax logo i think it is bricked please help



    • You need an OTG cable and search for a post on XDA for unbricking.

  • nipun

    i have try to root micromax a52 with above process but icant see SuperUser in application drawer and i cant fill that os is change .

  • Nirmik

    While flashing i have to select only the bootimg option? in sp flash tool…

  • after rooting does we can unroot the device? and BOOTIMG will get changed to secured one (Provided by micromax when purchasing the phone).

    • Yes it can be uprooted. You will need to flash the secured boot.img to get the secured version back.

  • Nirmik

    Unlock root does not install tried 10 times! stuck at 72% and then says network problem! plz put in a tutorial with some other software! please! asap! 🙁

    • Try SuperOneClick

      • Nirmik

        did it with an older version of unlock root! super one click was not installing either!
        is it possible to port ics?
        i read on xda that the screen res n memory are low but the galaxy y n y pro have ics with same/lower resolutions and just 30mb xtra ram! i cant post it on xda but can you find out a way?

  • abhi

    hey, by chance i deleted the mlabs launcher.
    is it going to be a problem ?

    • Yes. When you do a factory reset you will not have mlabs launcher.

  • Choose the path where the insecure boot.img is located.

  • thanks thnaks alot you guys are great, my A52 has been rooted , it was so simple thanks to you, God bless 🙂

    • Enjoy and don’t forget to install CWM.

      • MOHSIN

        • It is a custom recovery by which you can take nandroid backups, restore those backups, flash ROMs flash mods etc.

      • Nirmik

        Awesome! thanx a lot! would it be an ICS port? (may be i am asking too much…but cant control 😉 )

        Also, though the chances are rare that it will be considered,but still, i hav written to the CM developers requesting for a CM ROM 😉 :p

  • Mohsin Khan
