How to Root and Unbrick: Lava Iris 405

Lava Iris 405 is one of the best Android devices available at that price point. Powered by a 1 GHz dual core processor and 512 MB of RAM, Iris 405 sails high on Android Jelly Bean OS. As with every other Android phone, rooting the Lava Iris 405 can help you do a lot of other things than you can do with a stock unrooted device. To have an idea about what sort of stuff you can actually do on your android smartphone once you root it, read this article.

Disclaimer:
Rooting voids your manufacturer warranty. In most of the cases though, simply unrooting the device makes you eligible to claim the warranty again.
Neither the developer of the tools used in this guide nor Droidiser shall be held responsible for any kind of damage that might occur to your device while following this guide.

Before you begin:

Enable USB Debugging on your Lava Iris 405. On Android 4.1 devices, that can be done by going to Settings > Developer Options and then ticking the USB Debugging checkbox.
Don’t perform the steps listed below unless your phone has sufficient battery left to last the process. I shall recommend charging it to at least 50%.

Rooting Lava Iris 405:

  1. Download Framaroot.apk and install it on your Iris 405. To install it, you must have checked Unknown Sources by going to Settings > Security. If you haven’t already done so, you will be pointed there when you try to install that application.
  2. Open the app once it is installed.
  3. Click the Install SuperSU option. Though Install Superuser option should also work, it is reportedly not working fine.
  4. Then select the Boromir exploit.
  5. On the confirmation message that follows, select OK.
  6. Reboot your device and check if it has been rooted successfully.

Unbricking Lava Iris 405:

To unbrick Lava Iris 405, you will have to flash stock rom on to your device. Below are the steps to do that.
  • Install USB Drivers for the Mediatek based Lava Iris 405 on your computer.
  • Download stock rom for Lava Iris 405.
  • Follow the steps in this guide given under the heading: Using Flash Tools to flash Stock ROM V2 to A110. All the steps go as it is, the only change being the rom file you have to flash is the one you downloaded in the step above.
We are quite sure that for most of you, this would be a walk in the park. For others who face any kind of problem with the steps listed above may ask for help from the We community.
