    The amount of bricking case is just rising nowadays and the reason behind it is still under the black cloth, some think its due to wrong scatter file and there are many users out there who are eager to flash the recovery. But still there is workaround for it which is safest amongst all

    Spoons and Forks needed-
    1. Micromax A75 :p
    2. Root access
    3. Stock ROM/UB-1(This doesn't matter but just for a safe side)
    4. Terminal Emulator from here
    5. Recovery image by me from here
    6. flash_image binary from here
    7. Any Root explorer



    Procedure-
    1. Extract the flash_image binary to your sd card( Don't extract it in any folder, extract it in open that is root of sd card
    2. Copy that extracted flash_image binary file to system/bin using root explorer and after that long press on the same file and select permissions and a dialog box will appear with few empty check boxes, tick all the check boxes and tap OK
    3. Now place the recovery image in sd card( keep it open and not inside any folder)
    4. Fire up terminal emulator and type
    Code (Text):
    1. su
    and press enter and grant the root access
    5. Then type
    Code (Text):
    1. flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    and press enter
    6. Then type
    Code (Text):
    1. reboot recovery
    and press enter and this will take you to new recovery!!

    Advantages of this method
    Safest method
    Disadvantages of this method
    Needs root access



    Done!!
    If you face any problems, post it here and I will be happy to help

    I think ES File Explorer would do the job.
