Exclusive: How to Root Jelly Bean Updated Micromax A110 Canvas 2

Back this afternoon, I posted the news that Micromax A110 can now be updated to unofficial Jelly Bean. I had promised you to write down this article to help you root once you update your Micromax A110 to Android v4.1 Jelly Bean. If you are still on Ice Cream Sandwich and came here looking for a rooting guide, you should visit this guide instead.

Note: If you find this guide too hard or are facing problems while performing steps in this guide, then the easier guide to root and install Jelly Bean guide is for you.

There can only be two reasons why you would want to root after you have updated your phone.
  1. You hadn’t previously rooted your phone, but now want to root it to solve the problem with the second sim after you have updated.
    Note: You are required to flash modem.img from Stock rom v2 to keep second sim functional for which you need root.
  2. You were having a rooted device when you were on ICS, and you can’t resist the perks of rooting now.

Before you proceed:

  • Rooting will void your warranty. Btw, you have already voided your warranty by flashing the 3rd party Jelly Bean Update.

  2. Download Flash_Tools.rar and extract it in your pc.
  3. Open Flash Tools and run Flash_tool.exe.
