Micromax A55 : All Things Root Guide

Micromax A55 : All Things Root Guide

Micromax A55 runs on Android 2.2.1 Froyo and thus for that Z4 Root method will be apt. It is important to note that most Android handsets running on Android 2.2.1 Froyo can use Z4 root method. Now, the question is what would tempt you to root this device? Well, of course, with rooting you will get access to Super User permissions and post rooting you can perform modifications in the system files and updates. You will be able to free the Android phone and gain complete control over the operating system.
But before you move towards the rooting process you must know about the risks and this includes a risk of losing the data from the phone or even bricking the phone.
Disclaimer: Since there is some risk involved in rooting Micromax A55, we recommend that you perform the rooting procedure at your own risk. We must not be held responsible for anything that may happen with your phone after rooting.

How to Root Micromax A55

Micromax A55 can be rooted using the simple Z4 root method as developed by popular XDA developer RyanZA. You can download this app from here: Z4Root tool
After downloading the same, you need to install it on your phone. Now to root your Micromax A55, open the app and you will come across two options, one is permanent root and the other is temporary root. If it is merely for the testing purpose then you may try the temporary rooting way. But if you are actually looking for the rooting solution then in that case we recommend you to root the phone permanently. When you click on the permanent root option your handset will reboot. After the phone is rebooted, the rooting is done. You can check the same with Super User App.
Post rooting we recommend you to take the back up of the phone. Only then you must uninstall the apps that you don’t want from the system.
  • After you root an android phone you will gain access to the internal file system and thus making potent changes in them or accessing them will be very much possible.
  • You can enhance the visual experience of the phone after rooting.
  • Sometimes, you may feel quite irritated with the unwanted default apps which the manufacturers or Google packs in without an uninstall button. But since it is something that the administrator has provided you, nothing can be done. But rooting helps you in removing the unwanted default apps and that too with a very simple method.
  • Reports say it helps in reducing the battery usage of Android phones.
  • Yes, for all those who love speeding up the operating system, rooting Android brings in benefit by way of performance and speed enhancement.
  • There are many such apps that work on rooted phones only. Yes, after rooting the device, you can seek access to such apps.
The credit for Z4 root app goes to developer RyanZA and with the help of this app, Androids that run on Froyo 2.1.1 can be rooted easily.

How to Install ClockworkMod Recovery 5.0.2 on the Motorola Droid X

How to Install ClockworkMod Recovery 5.0.2 on the Motorola Droid X

Motorola’s Droid devices have been hard to root and recover, and if they aren’t hard, then they come with their own set of requirements. The Droid X is no exception, but the benefits reaped from rooting it are endless, especially when paired with ClockwordMod Recovery. Whether you’re not very well-versed as a techie, or you’re the type of person who wants to flash things one after the other, getting ClockworkMod Recovery for your Motorola Droid X is a must.
ClockworkMod Recovery is one of the most widely used Android recoveries that are available for most mainstream Android devices. Developed by Koushik Dutta, the same man who created ROM Manager, ClockworkMod is set apart from other Android recoveries by its extremely simple setup process. Though it does require users to root their phones, once it is installed, using it is a breeze.
ClockworkMod Recovery allows you to reboot your system, apply updates from your SD Card, as well as a number of other advanced recovery, restoration, installation and maintenance operations on your Android device.
If you have a rooted Droid X and you’d like to flash custom ROMs to it, the easiest way is to do it through Clockwork Mod Recovery. Not sure what to do? No problem. We’ll help you through the simple setup process.
Before we begin, we’ll need a few things:
  • A rooted Motorola Droid X
  • ADB installed on your system. If you haven’t gotten it yet, we recommend that you do.
  • Recovery Bootstrap app. You can get it from here.
Once you have the requirements ready, you can now proceed to installing ClockworkMod Recovery on your Droid X:
  1. Download the Recovery Bootstrap app (see link above) and save it to your computer. Copy the APK file to the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder.
  2. Make sure that USB Debugging has been enabled on your device. You can do so through the path Settings > Applications > Development.
  3. Connect your device to your PC using the USB cable.
  4. Open a command prompt on your computer. If you are on Windows Vista/7, click your Start button and in the search bar, type “cmd”. If you are on Windows XP, click Run and then type “cmd”.
  5. Enter the following command (without the quotes) into the command prompt window: “adb push bootstrap- /systems/app”
  6. Once the file is pushed, install ROM Manager from the Android Market.
  7. Run the ROM Manager app.
  8. From within the ROM Manager app, choose to flash the latest ClockworkMod Recovery to your device.
  9. Once ClockworkMod Recovery has been flashed to your device, check that it has been properly flashed and is working by rebooting into recovery mode.
Congratulations! You now have ClockworkMod Recovery 5.0.2 on your Motorola Droid X.

root" basically comes from Linux terminology. "root" is the super user, like Administrator on windows. root user have complete permissions, like to alter system files, perform system level updates and such. 

So, basically, "rooting" for android is the process of getting "root" permissions. That is, to modify the android operating system to get complete control over it. 

What the rooting process actually does is to upload a special program called "su" (consider this as short for superuser, actually it stands for switch user) which allows us to perform "root" operations.

THE ROOTING PROCESS Download the file attached here: 
1.) Download needed file

2.) Copy ZIP file to your SD-card

3.) Turn off your phone

4.) Switch ON your device in the 
recovery Mode (hold power, volume up, home
button together).

5.) Select update from SD Card

6.) You will see that the list of files will come from which you will have 
to select the file which is named as

7.) Wait a few minutes

8.) And Your Galaxy Y
S5360 is now rooted!


Well, after rooting, the first thing I did was back-up and un-install all the unwanted app using Titanium Backup. Be sure to back-up apps if you are not sure whether it is an unwanted app or a system app.
Next thing I did was to backup the entire system using ClockWorkMod recovery (If you want a how-to, please ask). I would recommend that you do this step first.
After that, some thing you can easily do are : change the boot animation, use scripts, and so on... 


The benefits of rooting are many. I will note down a few here :
1. You have almost full control over your android.
2. You can back-up restore your system.
3. Change the appearance by modifying PNG's.
4. Run scripts for performance and usability.
5. Allows to remove unwanted apps, that are otherwise un-removable.
6. Installing custom ROM's become so much easier


1. You may brick (damage) your phone (If you trust people in this forum, most of us have rooted our phones and there was no problem at all). 
2. Well, I am not sure, but rooting may/may not void your warranty as you are modifying the operating system from what was given to you by the manufacturer. 

Finally, here is a link that I have posted earlier. This is a post on XDA Forums with details on almost every basic thing about android. 
Dictionary for n00b - What is.../What does ...mean?

I hope someone benefits from this information.

These are my friend, insane_subro's lines:
Rooting and Modifying the OS will void the warranty !! But you can easily get back to the state where you were any time  
And if things go wrong say you downloaded an app from the market !! The service centre people will buy it without bargain !!

Wiki - How do I know ?
I hard Bricked my phone twice and blamed Samsung people for that 
Soft bricked more than - lost count !!
Played with the bootloader fked things up, went to Samsung Service Center with LG logo showing up on the screen!! when asked why, I said I dont know, it went off and when I turned it on LG appeared, I think LG people hacked it .... The bought my story and flashed with the latest firmware which I lateron distributed!

How To Root Your Android Phone With SuperOneClick

How To Root Your Android Phone With SuperOneClick

Since I first bought my Motorola Droid over a year ago, I’ve done everything with it. I’ve gone on GPS-based geo-caching adventures, I’ve transformed my phone into a media center remote control, and I’ve installed some of the coolest surveillance apps available. However, the one single thing that I could not let myself do is root my Android phone.
The fear of “bricking” my expensive mobile device was too much, even for a guy that prides himself on his moderate hacking abilities. What convinced me to take the plunge and learn how to root my Android phone? Well, the first thing was seeing how easily my iPhone-toting MUO colleagues could jailbreak their phones. The second thing that convinced me was my need to take screenshots on the go, not only when I’m attached to my PC via a USB cable. The final thing was seeing how many cool apps on the Android Market require root.

Root Options Available To Android Users

In the early days of Android ownership, the process of “rooting” your brand-spanking-new and expensive Android device involved a fairly complicated 10 to 15 step process that involved the very real and present danger of “bricking” your Android phone and making it a worthless block of metal and glass.
If you’re in the same boat and you’ve been fearfully avoiding the complicated rooting process like the plague, I’ve got some good news for you. There are now a fair number of one-click applications out there that will root your phone for you. These apps work on the large majority of Android devices. Don’t get me wrong ““ the danger of “bricking” is always there, but if you check to see that the app has been tested with your phone and version of Android, you should be safe enough.
Just to give you some options to look at, some of the top one-click root apps for Android include Universal Androot, the Recovery Flasher,  Easy RootUnrevoked, and last but certainly not least ““ Super One-Click from XDA Developers. SuperOneClick is the app that I went with, and I believe it’s the app that will work for the majority of people reading this. But before you get started, don’t forget to enable USB debugging on your phone by going toSettings->Applications->Development and enabling “USB Debugging“.

Also, SDK is required. Just follow my instructions in the taking Screenshots article that I wrote a while back to install the SDK developers kit. Nothing else below will work until this is done. Take the time to do it, because it’ll also open up a lot of cool features like high-resolutionscreenshots, file exploring and easy file transfers. Once you’ve set it up, you’re ready to roll.

Download Super One Click, make sure you have the Android debugger (SDK developer kit) running, expand the Super One Click zip file and click the SuperOneClick icon to run it. When SuperOneClick launches, you’ll see several large buttons at the top of the screen. Make sure your phone is connected to the computer via USB and that the debugger can “see” it (activity will start logging). Make sure your SD card is not mounted, and go ahead and click “Root” in SuperOneClick.

You’ll see the scrolling activity as SuperOneClick does it’s job, with “OK” appearing after each task. You may see warnings, but so long as it doesn’t “hang” on waiting for device, things should keep scrolling until it finally returns the “Success!” message.
At this point, check out the installed apps on your phone and you should see a “Superuser” icon that looks like a Droid skull and crossbones. If you see it, you’re rooted. If you don’t see it, reboot the Droid. In fact, I’d suggest rebooting even if you do see it, as I had some issues getting rooted apps to work until I actually rebooted my own device.
When you open up SuperUser, you’ll see that you can configure notifications so that no app can actually run with root access unless you give it permission. Also, according to the folks at Nexus One Forum, SuperOneClick doesn’t actually unlock the Bootloader, so you still retain your warranty. I haven’t confirmed if that’s true or not, but if true it’s a pretty good plus to using SuperOneClick with the SDK approach.
Whenever you run an app that requires root (superuser), you’ll see a notification requesting permission. I like this because it also means that if an app gets installed and tries to utilize superuser access without your knowledge, it can’t.
If you check off “Remember”, the program gets added to the list of “approved” apps with superuser access. You can see the ones on your list when you click on the “Apps” tab.
As you can see, once you have SDK installed and connected to your phone, the process is as simple as installing and running SuperOneClick. The program takes care of rooting your phone from the PC. Finally, you can enjoy a rooted Android phone, and all of the fun and excitement that offers!

How to move the applications to sd card in unrooted android devices,it supports 2.0,2.2,2.3

How to move the applications to sd card in unrooted android devices,it supports 2.0,2.2,2.3

This requires Froyo 2.2 or above
It doesn't void your warranty
It doesn't delete existing apps
It's perfectly safe
It doesn't require rooting.

I realise there are a few threads about this, but I thought I would make a new one for to make easier than any other guide, and hopefully people will find it more easily as they won't have to scroll through pages of other threads to find an answer.
I am now successfully running most apps from my SD Card now. So here is my guide - hope it helps

Download the SDK from here- Android SDK | Android Developers
downloaded exe file should be installed.

basically installed files only in "C:\Program Files "here you find the android folder.
Copy that Android folder to the desktop.
Open the folder on the desktop and open the file, SDK Manager.exe (as no such file as setup.exe exists in the new version of the SDk)
Close the command or windows command prompt window that opens else automatically closes.
Untick all options you are promted to download except ones like the manuals, and Essentially, ensure the USB driver option is selected or ticked.
Let these files download
Ensure on your phone, USB Debugging is on - Go to Settings/Applications/Development/USB Debugging and ensure its ticked or on.
Download and install HTC Sync from HTC's website for your device.
Connect your phone by USB and select the HTC sync option when it pops up with charge only, disk mode etc.
Allow the sync to complete.
Open windows command promt. Start / Run

Type in (without quotations) "cmd"
The following should appear. (note its "users" in windows 7, )

15. Type in the following after the ">" at each step (without quotations,and including spaces and capital letters)

"cd desktop\android\android-sdk\platform-tools" (might be "cd desktop\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools" in windows 7)
"adb devices"
"adb shell"
A $ sign should pop up
"pm setInstallLocation 2"
Another $ should pop up
should show like this

And your done. Close everything, disconnect phone, turn off phone and then turn it back on again.

16. Now the phone will be set to install all apps you install onto the SD card. However, current apps on phone will mostly still be stored on the internal memory. This process doesn't move these apps for you, it adds the ability. So you must now manually move those already installed on the phone.

To do this, go to settings / applications / manage applications
Then you just click on an app, and the move to SD card box should no longer be Grey. So you must now move all the apps you want onto the SD Card.
