How to root Micromax A26 Bolt in 5 steps: effective tutorial

Micromax A26 Bolt is an old smartphone from MMX. They launched it at a time when very few users were concerned about Android version and its features. This smartphone does not house very high end features that can be considered in today’s scenario but still if we consider price to feature ratio then it can be considered as a worth to buy device.

It measures 3.5 inch TFT screen having 320x480 pixels resolution. This resolution is appreciable at the price Micromax is offering this phone. It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS with cooperation of a 1GHz single core processor with 256 MB RAM. This is the main reason why you need to root it. Its 1350 mAh battery provides approx. 4 hours talk time and 5 days standby time with usual 2G network. It is equipped with light and proximity sensors which seems impressive. These sensors works well in area of improving the automation in particular fields.

Though its RAM is not sufficient for high end firmware’s but still it is capable of holding upgraded features in form of ROM upgrades, recovery installation or next generation games. Rooting will grant you some extra powers which can be used to enhance its functionality.

So rooting is going to give you a complete new atmosphere where your A26 Bolt will breathe new air of modifies software and features. Also this rooting will allow you to manage some custom settings (if you’re a developer) on individual level. However it will void your A26’s warranty but I think it is already expired or going to expire very soon, so no concern with this point (only in limited cases).
