How to Root Micromax A110 Canvas 2

Micromax A110 Rooted!
Root checker confirms root
It hasn't been a week since the Micromax Canvas successor i.e. Micromax A110 went on sale and can you believe it, it's rooted! Thanks to Bin4ry's rooting tool and XDA member jgsolo27, the device was recently rooted and thus enjoys superuser access. The development for this 5 inch dual core processor powered Android Phablet will, for sure, be accelerated with this. I shall try to get a ClockworkMod port for this device, as I did for Spice Mi 500. The rooting procedure is really easy, and you will get through it in a breeze.

Update 1: You can get the Micromax A110's Stock ROM here (updated)
Update 2:Another good news, ClockworkMod has been ported to the Micromax A110
Update 3: Here is the guide to help you use your external sdcard as the internal sdcard. Enjoy more HD games now!
Update 4: If you have already upgraded your Micromax A110 to Jelly Bean and want to root it, go here. Else, Update it to pre-rooted Jelly Bean stock rom using this guide.
Ah, I don't want to repeat that boring disclaimer again, but here it is: Rooting can brick your device and it will also void your warranty. So, you are at your own risk. If you are a rookie, give this article a quick read: What is rooting?

Let the root-athon begin:

  1. Enable USB debugging on your device. To do that, go to Settings > Development > USB debugging.
  2. Connect your device to any PC/laptop and install the drivers using pdanet.
  3. Unzip the root tool you downloaded above.
  4. Change the mode of your device from USB Storage to Media Device and proceed further. This change can be done only when you have connected your device to the PC, so don't go mad searching for this option before you have even connected your device. (Thanks RajivMishra13 for the update).
  5. Run the runme.bat file. (Clever naming, eh?)
    Click the Runme.bat file
  6. A command prompt with weird green letters will pop-up on your screen.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions carefully. To start off, you willl need to type in a "1" and press enter.
    Note: If you ever want to Unroot your Micromax A110, follow the above steps till you reach this one and then, instead of typing "1", type "x" and hit enter.  Follow the instructions that appear on the command prompt after that.
  8. The command prompt window with weird green letters: Root by Bin4ry tool
  9. Your device will reboot during the process after which Bin4ry will copy some files to your device.
  10. When the green letters in the command prompt says Have Fun!, then... Have fun.
  11. That means, your device is rooted now and you can enjoy Superuser permissions!
Wasn't this easy? For a first timer, it may be somewhat difficult, but given how scary the word "Rooting" is, this one was really a no-brainer.
