  1. With latest update on Micromax Yureka with Cynogen OS version 12.0; I am unable to view the display once I dial any call. After dialing a number screen gets blank or diabled…and I cant make it visible even after pressing power button. Due to this I am unable to end the call.
    Also unable to enter any keypad entry during conference call.
    Is anybody facing same issue with Micromax Yureka Mobile???

    1. Go to the dial pad and dial *#*#7769#*#* and press start you will get a good calibration then exit your problem will be solved this is because of the proximity sensor.

  2. Can I install Kitkat or lollipop in turbo a250. If yes can you please provide the link to the process

    1. If your phone update with lollipop then don't try to install KitKat again because bootloader is changed and your phone will brick. so don't install previous version of your Yureka.
