Hello Micromax A73 users...
I have modded boot.img for your device to get you basic needs of a rooted phone n actually it will help u root your device too...but as u have got recovery already, rooting will be easier with that....
1) Unsecure (For those who r not rooted yet: helps rooting device, after flashing this boot.img, u can root the device using UnlockRoot or SuperOneClick.)
2) init.d support (to load/run scripts on boot)
3) Adobe flash support (need to confirm, don't have device)
4) Initialize ext2.ko module on boot
How To Flash Using SP Flash Tools:
You must have drivers installed already to the system for the device before u begin the procedure.
1) Switch off the device completely
2) Run SP Flash Tools on ur PC
3) Put the downloaded boot.img in the same folder as ur scatter file
4) Browse to the scatter file of ur device on pc where u saved
5) Load that scatter file
6) Now u will see all partitions of ur devices selected in the list below
7) UNTICK all except boot (make sure its path is to the downloaded boot.img)
8) Now hit Download button only (n not format+download)
9) It will show waiting for device in bottom bar
10) Now connect the device using the usb cable to pc
11) It will automatically put ur device in download mode n will flash boot partition only
12) When everything is finished it will show Download OK dialogue.
13) Close the SP Flash Tools
14) Detach the device from PC n Power On.

1) boot.img (non-flashable, sp flash tools method):- boot.img_A73_Mastermind.zip
2) boot.img (flashable zip for cwm recovery):- boot.img_flashable_A73_Mastermind.zip
This is a non flashable zip file so extract the zip file n u will get the boot.img
I can provide flashable zip on demand for the users already having CWM recovery.
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns before flashing! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
