Ask mmx if there's any stability update for a78.
Because I need firmware image or files to root it.
U ask mmx about it till then I will look up for another way

If you could tell me a way to extract the firmware or image files... i can send you the same.
also i tried to root by:
superclickone v.2.3.3 - does'nt works.
Rooting guide for ninad for A85, Does'nt works.

Although i did do this: How to force install apps to SD card without ROOT!!! A70. successfully done in A78.

You need root for it

The problem is like, u need the mmx Support package ,
some users secretly copied the link from where the mmx person was downloading it for A75 ! hence I was able to Root the device

I am trying to find other ways ! but still nothing

Guys any news on how to root this device...?
"Micromax support" people prove to be of no help.
the device is not even usable widout a root!
No RAM, no internal storage whtsoever...
to be accurate: 5 mb internal memory (cz i cnt move 'preintalled' google maps, facebook, etc and their updated to storage card... and
12 -18 mb free RAM (cz of some useless services running in the background which when stopped, restart.)

Oops ,
that was too much exaggeration ....
it is impossible to have 5Mb of Data ... that's crazy and to be frank i do not think any company would do that crap ... as some apps are 5Mb each (even more)

More over seems you have installed many many apps That is the reason for the low memory !

For as Maps and other crap is installed in the system memory and not in data memory (where you can install apps )1

Its not exaggeration.... cant even post a screenshot... No root to get it installed.
The company actually sold crap this time.
yes too many programs installed but all of them are in storage card.
every single one tht was installed manually is in storage card.
Too many pre-installed apps - in system memory (rom)
All the updates of those pre-installed apps- in internal storage
thus leaving the free internal storage to be exactly 7MB at present.

and so far RAM is concerned:
Launcher 11 MB
Settings 14 MB
Facebook 11 MB
Maps 12 MB
Google services 8 MB
android Keyboard 4.6 MB
peek 2 MB

119 MB used
Ram free: 1.3 MB

I'd like to root the thing too, but you're exaggerating a bit, right? It's a very usable and useful device as it is, for calls, e-mail, net-surfing, reading e-books, playing music. I see no difference in smoothness/responsiveness to my wife's Galaxy S. For more heavy-duty stuff I tether it to my laptop.

Or maybe the manufacturing quality varies wildly and I happen to have got a good piece..

Yes you are right. Smoothness and performance is okay till I am leaving 100MB or so internal memory. (I have only installed Google +, App lock, MX player, Xabber and google reader, That's it I only have 92 mb memory left) Still whenever I am accessing contacts or call log it takes time. Okay it's manageable. (As I have payed not much for all these)
Most important is battery life. It sucks. Hope it will be improved once the pre-installed caps which remains active all the time is removed.

Try moving the apps to the SDcard? (You have one right?) Google+ alone is around 22MB I think. I haven't installed the others you mention but have quite a few other apps -- kindle, opera mini next, dolphin mini, adobe reader, folder play etc.

As for battery life, I find it comparable to my wife's much more expensive Samsung Galaxy S. In other words, on a full charge with normal use (for me) it lasts 24 hours. It has never run out of charge for me yet.

Hi Ninad & Varun,
I have read almost all your posts for A75. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge.

I have tried Zurgush, it didnt worked on my A78.

I am able to see all my file on internal rom of A78 and I can download as well. let me know if you need any specific file on mobile, which will help to root it.

Thanks Again Ninad and Varun.

Hello Varun,

If I get you a partial extracted stock ROM contents (not as a whole ROM but its partial contents including its directory structure) as it is inside the device, can you find out a method to root the device? Or by going through that contents can you guide me to root my device? This extracted content amounts to some where around 238 MB if I compress to a RAR file it comes to around 139MB. If I upload it and give a link to you can you get the rooting method for the device?

Question Micromax A78 flashed with A75 ROM - mistake - Help

I have flashed Micromax A78 with A75 files wrongly.

Now the phone starts but display is dead and don't know if it is bricked.

Thanks to vshlkmr for his A78 rooted post in this forum. Do I have a chance to recover the A78 by following this rooting method by vshlkmr?

What could be the problem, What can be done?

Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
