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 :)

    Sir, I am the one who found rooting these micromax devices is only by modding boot.img n then use UnlockRoot or SuperOneClick, i first employed that method on Micromax A75 which i own n now the same method is the only working root method for Micromax A52 also...I will get the boot.img of this device Micromax A25 by tonight mostly...i will mod it n post a new thread for rooting if u say or should i post it in this thread only???whatever u say.
