    1. Hi Ajit

      Your logic is right, but I don't think so because Micromax would also increase sales of Canvas HD, Turbo, Magnus etc.

    1. Hi

  12. hi abhishek
    great work on ur blog but i had one question
    instead of using these tools, can i just place the rom on my sd card and use rom manager to flash it?

    1. Hi Raunak

      this is flash-able Rom, so you can not install this Rom via Rom Manager app

  13. i tried to install usb drivers finally successfull but the sptool does not detect my phone a117

    1. Hi, Akshay

      Have a good day

    1. Hi abhishek can i take the stock rom v3 and install from sd card with cwm recovery or uncle tool….is that possible bcuz micromax driver is not compatible on my w8 64bit lap….

  14. hi Abhishek.. i had to enquire sumthng frm u.. dat if i can install rom for canvas hd into my magnus.. if i can den is it d regular method for it?

    1. Hi Maaz

      Don't install canvas HD Rom on your A117 because chipset is diffrent Canvas HD has MT6589 and your phone Magnus has MT6589T.

    2. I don't suggest you any custom Rom for you because, custom Rom means beginning lot's of problem with your phone.

  15. DEar abhishek,

    i am a regular follower of your posts and like them as they work so well. just one question i have is that, how to uninstall cwm recovery from my magnus a117 and bring back the old recovery mode as it was at the time of purchase.

    1. Hi Mihir Soni

      Copy your stock Rom recovery from your Rom Folder on your Internal storage then install mobile uncle tool from Google play store.

      open Mobile uncle tool

      and tap on update recovery >>> choose recovery.img file

      then reboot your phone

      that's all

      Good day
