The various new goodies waiting for you in the new ROM are:
- Fixed GPS bug (which was already fixed by this patch)
- Fixed regular WiFi disconnection problem
- Internal Storage is now managed in a better way. Internal Sdcard size reduced from 2 GB to 1 GB and internal storage (where apps are stored) is increased to 1.5 GB
Note: This can be utilized even more by swapping your internal sdcard with the external sdcard, this way you have increased space for installation of apps, and even more space for downloading and storing data of heavy games.
- LED Flash intensity has been increased to almost double than that in version 1 (as reported by xda users)
- Apps can now be moved to External sdcard (even without root)
Software release notes:I think I should now pay attention to what the title promised you: The steps to install Stock ROM v2. There are two methods, one is really very easy, while the other one is comparatively trickier.
1. M! Zone+ and M! Live(http://mimicromax.com) applications are integrated.
2. Browser homepage is replaced with http://mimicromax.com
3. Dialpad issue fixed.
4. SD card memory changed from 2GB to 1GB. This 1GB added to internal storage for apps installation.
Let's start with the easier one.
Flashing Stock ROM v2 using CWM
Note: Restoring the backup won't repartition your internal storage, though all other changes will take effect.
- A Rooted Micromax A110 with Clockworkmod Recovery
- CWM Backup of Stock ROM v2 (Thank vijetaverma for uploading it!)
- After you have downloaded CWM backup from the link above, extract it somewhere and transfer the extracted folder itself to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/ folder. (that's the default location where cwm backups are stored, clockworkmod recovery scans only this folder for backup files).
- Switch off your mobile.
- Press Volume Up + Volume Down + Power button till a screen appears asking you if you want to go to recovery mode or to factory mode. Press Volume up to go recovery mode, now you are in the clockworkmod recovery.
- Using Volume down, scroll to the option that says "Backup and Restore".
Choose the highlighted option
- Backup your current version just in case something odd happens.
- Once the backup completes, choose the restore option and restore the backup of v2.
- Let the process complete.
- Clear Dalvik Cache from Advanced Options in the cwm recovery.
- Reboot your phone. The first boot will take some time as Dalvik Cache is regenerated.
- Go to the Storage section, and if the internal storage is changed, then you can confirm that you have successfully flashed the new version.
- You may need to root again after flashing the stock rom. Also, the swapping mod needs to be reapplied.
Using Flash Tools to Flash Stock ROM V2 to A110
- Stock ROM v2 (compressed)
- Flash Tool (Included in the stock rom linked above)
- A computer
- A Micromax A110 (obviously)
- Install drivers for your phone using pdanet. You can use Micromax drivers in case pdanet doesn't work out for you (although it should).
- Extract the Stock ROM folder
- Extract and open the SP Flash Tools.
- In SP Flash Tools, click on Scatter-Loading and the program will ask you the location of the scatter loading file for your device.
- In the extracted folder of the stock rom, go to the folder named "S9081_MP_F4_B1_IN_MMX_0.16__flasher_user" and select the file "MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc" which is our scatter loading file.
- Switch off your phone (Remove the battery to make sure it is switched off).
- In Flash Tool, go to Options and Click USB Mode so that it is enabled. Click options again and then go to DA Download All > Speed and finally select High Speed. Click the Download option (present on the right of Firmware > Upgrade option) and the flash tool will start looking for your phone.
- Connect your phone now. The Flash Tool will start the flashing process, the progress of which can be viewed from a yellow progress bar at the bottom of the flash tool.
Notice the yellow line at bottom telling the progress
- Don't interrupt this process as it can potentially brick your device. Make sure no power interruption takes place. (Use a laptop to ensure this).
- After the process completes, a green ring will appear on your device signalling that the process was successful.
- Disconnect your phone.
- You have to root your phone again if you want to.
