    I have found easiest and proper way to root A75 Superfone Lite.I have successfully rooted my A75 by this method which was on stock rom only.

    This method also works for mito898 device which is indonesian clone of A75.mito898 users can find unsecure boot.img with init.d support for their device at the end of this post.

    This guide is for those who want to have their own custom stock rom like me.
    You have choice of custom pre-rooted rom like UB roms...I liked rom but the problem was we can't use spared system storage of about 73mb to add apps.Apps added to /system/app/ don't showed up after reboot.
    Beauty of this rooting method is you can add apps to /system/app/ later n they will showed up next time after reboot.

    There is no guaranty that this will work so giving it "BETA" tag but it worked for me so it should work for others too.
    Thanks to members vkrajuu and sansingal for testing and reporting this method as WORKING.


    FOR MICROMAX A75 DEVICE:

    Requirements:
    1. Drivers installed on system, both specific drivers n ADB drivers (here)
    2. Unsecured boot.img: here (Credits- me)
    3. UnlockRoot: here (Credits- Respective developer)

    You may also try SuperOneClick if u prefer it.I used UnlockRoot.

    Method:
    1. Flash downloaded modded boot.img to device.
    - U must know by the time how to flash A75 using SPFlashTool (See Here for Info or here)
    - Put newer boot.img replacing existing one
    - Tick only BOOT (boot.img)
    - Download
    - Let it finish.

    2. Power on device.

    3. Enable USB Debugging.
    - Settings > Application tab > Applications > Development > USB Debugging

    4. Install UnlockRoot in pc

    5. Attach device in debugging mode to pc.

    6. Now Run UnlockRoot program and click Root button

    7. Confirm online device Micromax A75 in the list which pop-up.

    8. Let in finish the procedure and Restart device.(I manually restarted device)

    Viola...A75 is rooted in simplest n proper way.

    UnlockRoot does not install Busybox on device so after u rooted the device install busybox to work with many root apps.Search Play Store for Busybox Installer by Jrummy.


    FOR MITO898 DEVICE:

    Unsecure boot.img with init.d support for mito898 device (indonesian clone of A75): mito898-boot.img

    I didn't find that funny.....why hiding all your EASY ways till???Promoting UB roms always but never ever said abt EASY ways to root.you are the 1st one to root device,no doubt but that was not the proper way.biggest hitch was 73 mb spared but can't use it.N abt recovery,ya I can see devices being bricked,cant blame recovery directly though but this is the fact right now....so I don't want to brick my device especially when I m living alone, 300kms away from home where no service centers can be found.
    So if u can't appreciate the work then please atleast don't try to make fun...

    Even I am wondering why recovery is bricking only selective devices and not all

    @mastermind
    Any idea?
    At least if I get a log then I can surely spot it.
    It looks like I have to port another recovery :O

    @varun I think flashing the recovery with mmx files works fine
    if you update something pls provide that file to me I will test that
    dont close the project

    ninadchaudhari What's up !

    come on , calm down... !!

    I never meant to be funny btw !! i do not know what sounded funny in my post , but still if you were offended , Apologies :)

    i was never promoting anything :D also , hiding is not my goal :p
    while i doubt why is the 73Mb downloaded was not useful :eek:
    also, recovery bricks the devices is different problem ! but ya flashing via Recovery is another way of doing root ;)
    any ways, I never made fun of anything !
    also, if you are in any ways offended, again Apologies ;)


    We come here to discuss not to fight :D

    Grave problem needs to be solved off :D

    Inventors.

    I need your help. The purpose of a phone is to make phone calls and my A75 is very slow in getting the phone logs and dialer. I would like to root the phone using the above method however, I would like to know if i will be able to recover or get back to the factory setup when i purchased the phone.

    Also, need your help in referring to the post. I used to refer the xda developers link for my windows phone and it was really helpful and I am not quite sure which form to read and which one to apply.

    In your busy schedule, may i request you to let me know

    1) How should I root my phone?
    2) How to install the rom (from the 2 or 3 variants which is available)?
    3) How to restore back if i want to go back to MMX build?

    Please let me know, whenever you have time. I will live with the slow phone dialer problem.

    Note: I have tried all the different troubleshooting steps like installing a 3rd party driver and removing themes, etc. but no go.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Dialler in A75 is a bit slow in responding. Even with latest ROM's and over clocking you have to live with minor delay ( <1 Sec ) , how ever it is better than stock experience.

    2. If your intention is to root your phone to make it snappier, I would suggest you to to go with UB-A75-1 , which is rooted ( you dont have to root it again ) and having many tweaks . ( and stable to date ) .

    3. MMX stock ROM dump is available for download in this forum . So you can go back to Stock ( with factory settings ) with out any problem.

    Thanks

    it is based on mmx boot.img
    give a try
  15. mastermind1024

    No...i don't think it will work.The method will be the same for your device too but you need unsecured boot.img of your device instead of one provided here.You may give it a try but i will say its not safe to use another device's boot.img.If after flashing above boot.img your device don't boot then u need to have stock boot.img so better to have stock files 1st.If u can somehow get boot.img of your device then I can make it unsecure n then u may root the device by this method.

    I have rooted my micromax A75 with the above method. Absolutely good and easy method of rooting. The phone is rooted and i have also uninstalled all the stock unwanted applications by using Titanium backup.
    One thing more please perform the V6 supercharger script trick after rooting otherwise the phone would be insanely slow.
    Good work and many many thanks

    finally uninstalled stock apps right?
  22. sansingal

    sansingal Member

    Don't be a naive though. I have not only uninstalled the stock apps but i have also recovered the valuable space that have been leftover after uninstalling and I have been able to install the google apps updates by utilizing the recovered space. I have also been able to manually run supercharger script trick on my phone. The phone has become blazingly fast. Also the battery life has also considerably improved. I can bet that it is no less than the UB Rom. Even one more thing i would point out is that in the UB-1 Rom i was not been able to use the firewall as it crashes on start. Hence stock rooted rom is far better in terms of speed, stability and battery life.

    Ok,I have modded your device's boot.img so u can root the device.Download following boot.img and flash on device using the same SPFlashTool which we use for our device or something else if specific for your device.
    mito898-boot.img (Caution: this is not for Micromax A75 device)

    EDIT:
    Updated link for mito898-boot.img, now with init.d support
