    Is it just me or CACHE and USRDATA files are really missing from MyPhone A919i Duo ROM posted here! I’m thinking to put this ROM in my A116. Is it safe to put it without those files??

    • It doesn’t matter. Just flash the files that are present.

      • Resq

        Thanks dude. Just one more question. Should I backup my both IMEI, serial no and wifi mac address?

        • You need that only if you format.
          In this method you just need to click the Download button.

            Thanks again….and ‘Like’ done 🙂

          • Great 🙂

            So I tried to flush MyPhone A919i Duo ROM into my A116 and it didn’t work. The phone stays at boot image (yes, it doesn’t even reach to the animation)!! But flushing to the MMX A116 ROM given here does work. I donno what I’m doing wrong. I followed the exact steps mentioned here.

          • You need to do a full data wipe in recovery mode. A dalvik cache wipe is also necessary.

          • Resq

            Yep, I did “Wipe data/factory reset” and then “Wipe dalvik cache” using CWM 6.0.1.2

          • Will check it and tell.

          • Resq

            while doing “Wipe data/factory reset” I do get following log:

            Formatting /data…
            Formatting /cache…
            Formatting /sd-ext…
            No app2sd partition found. Skipping format of /sd-ext.
            Formatting .sdcard/.android_secure…
            Error mounting .sdcard/.android_secure!
            Skipping format…
            Data wipe complete.

          • Did you perform Dalvik cache wipe too?

          • Resq

            Yep…and this time I used CWM provided here in the link (v6.0.3.0)

            In logs its showing that:

            failed to mount /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 (no such file or directory)

          • Weird.

          • Resq

            Wait….it worked this time…Even after that “failed to mount” warning I rebooted the device. And it started working!! The only difference was that this time I used CWM version provided here. Donno if that makes a difference. But hey…now I’ve got a better ROM then the one provided by MMX 😉
            Thanks for your help and for this wonderful tutorial.

          • Great!
            Though I would like to know why it’s better than MMX’s ROM.

          • Resq

            Although I don’t think there is much difference (other then the preloaded crapware)…but this one does take around 70-90 MB less RAM then MMX’s

          • Yes. The Micromax one takes a bit more RAM but I changed the launcher to Nova and I got more free RAM.

          • Resq

            …and I’m going to do same with this one too 🙂

            Nova launcher rocks.
