  6. i hav a problem. i was trying to increase the internal memory of my a88.
    but i hav not done anything that are said in the process steps. i was only taking back up of my apks using clean master. then i hav uninstalled some games and lot of apps that are installed in my phone. then i switched of my phone and using recovery mode i tried to take a backup. but it said something that and backup had not done properly. then i i tried to switch on my phone, i got bad. the phone stucks at only showing "canvas" during boot. i kept the phone as that and it was not booting. then i removed the battery and go to recovery mode, clear data and factory reset , clear cache partition. then tried to switch on the phone. it was not booting. please help me….

  7. Hi Abhishek,

    Tutorial is nice ..well explained but unfortunately, it did not work for me. Sptool does not recognize the phone (i followed all steps).. i even tried 3-4 times with driver installed n updated driver etc. but nothing happenened .. any clue what could have been wrong?
    Does phone need to be rooted?

    1. These drivers are not getting installed, how to install them, they are inf files only, i right click them and press install and message appears saying 'cant install digital signature missing'

      1. You can disable digital signature check in Windows 8 and later by holding Shift key while pressing Restart and choose Disable driver signature verification enforcement.

  8. I hv already flashed cwm in my phone so if flash the v3 update directly is it okay

    Or do i have to first clear the delvik cache and format like we do when flasha new rom???

  9. I experienced WiFi issue with this ROM, also Internal memory issue still persists…plz suggest in case we have any patches…

      So you saying if I re-flash and re-install same FrostMod ROM it will resolve my issues…or do I need to download again the latest ROM … and follow the whole process…

    3. welcome

      yes some time solve problem by re-flashing Rom, So try to re-install your Rom and after finish start your phone and do not touch your screen till it is finish

    4. HI Abhi,

      Again some issues are occurring in this ROM such as application stops in between suddenly; I guess it will be because of RAM issue.

      Please let me know in case any other ROM could resolve this problem or else do I need to go again to my previous Stock ROM?

  10. Is the memory leak(ram) issue can be solved with this update? My a88 shows rom version as V23 is it latest than v3?

  11. can i update my micromax a88 without root through service center if yes then which version of android available for micromax a88.

    1. Hi bhavin

      follow these steps and update your mobile, it is Jelly Bean 4.1.1 bug fix update

    1. Go to your Phone setting then tap on last option about phone

      you will find version of rom in this option

  12. I Downloaded V3 and V2 when scatter file loaded in SP flash tool everthing loads ub except uboot file. Its is not there in the both download. I accidently flashed it and afterwards no light in mob. I can even see wether its charging or not. please provide uboot file for A88 pleases………

    1. Hi Sagar

      605 Downloads of this Rom but it is first problem, no one complain like this. so please flash Rom again.

    2. Can You check the Folder for UBOOT file whether it is there or not ? I dont see such file in my zip file. I think , thins UBOOT file will be the one for screen display. All others wont have such prob because , already this file will be there in their phone ROM. They will be flashing other files so they wont have such pron. But I have flashed server times with other roms too . so it could be corrupted . So I would require that file alone .

  13. Thanks Abhishek
    And one more thing if sp flashing become unsuccessful and can i restore my previous backuped rom via cwm recovery which i have created on
    my sd card ??

  14. What other options are need to be selected while intstalling Rom via sp tool other than MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt. i mean will i have to select options like recovery.img, boot.img ,etc at the bottom !!
