Default How to root Micromax A25.

After lots and lots of research, I have now confirmed that the only way to root Micromax A25 is through the following steps:

1. Obtain its scatter.txt file and boot.img.
2. Make the boot.img insecure.
3. Use the scatter.txt in SP Flash Tool to flash
the modified insecure boot.img file to the
phone.
4. Then root with UnlockRoot.
So dear modders and fellow Micromax lovers, please help me and let's get this phone rooted. The phone already communicates with my PC. I think the drivers are auto-installed when I connect the phone to the PC. And Motofail was able to reboot it. One of the many rooting methods that I tried managed to install a battery saver apk on my phone but not the superuser apk and the su binary. Therefore I am sure that the usb drivers have been installed.
Now the real question is--- How to obtain the scatter.txt and boot.img file? Will the scatter.txt file for the Micromax A52 work with A25? They have very similar specs and both have MT6575. Somebody please help. I seem to be the only person trying to root this phone.

Unfortunately, I am unable to help you out, but I would advise against using the scatter.txt file for a different phone (not usually a good idea to use stuff intended for a different phone when it comes to rooting).

Hopefully, someone who has your phone will be able to step in with some help and advice

I got the scatter file. Can you please help me dump its boot image? It is based on MT6575 and running on android 2.3.6.

Great news mastermind1024 - your work is, I'm sure, appreciated by others who have the same phone

You can either post in here or you can create a new thread... the choice is yours. If you PM me to let me know when you've posted it, I will add a link to it in the root sticky
