Micromax A106 Unite 2 Android Lollipop Update now Available

It looks like Android Lollipop upgrade is now available for Micromax Unite 2 device, the official ROM got listed on Moulnisky.com and many users have already flashed it on their U2 device successfully. The upgrade can be installed on both 4GB and 8GB variant however on the site it has been advised to flash on only 8GB model. The reviews that we had seen in Unite 2 groups on Facebook are showing on positive side. The update isn’t made available over the air by the officials and no such announcement has been made by MMX yet.

Android Lollipop for Micromax Unite 2

If you would like to read the detail guide on how to flash a ROM manually do check out our previous post. Android Lollipop was made available for Canvas xpress few days back and Yureka is also subjected to receive an update by CyanogenMod soon. Micromax has also launched two devices canvas fire 2 and canvas juice 2 with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Micromax Android one A1 is also going to receive the update in the coming week and Hue would also receive the upgrade as they promised to provide one.

Coming back to the topic, the ROM is available to download from Moulnisky. Below is the image where this link will be directed, it is clearly written over there that the Lollipop ROM is available and would work with 8GB variant of Unite 2 however I have personally seen 4GB variant users upgrading to Android 5.0.

 Lollipop Update for Unite 2 from service centre

Also, users got their Unite 2 device updated from service centres as well. So, if you’re not very much familiar with flashing ROMs on your device you should better contact the service centre to have your device upgraded.

PS: Do contact the service centre people before actually visiting them about the update availability. As per the posts on the Unite 2 group on Facebook the update is now available on support centres.

Note: If you’re going to upgrade your device manually you will lose all your data so it is better to have a proper backup of the data present on your device. Search the backup guide on our site.

The OTA might be rolled out by MMX officials soon, not sure when. If you have any questions please let us know.

Update: OTA update is now available for Unite 2.

    Hello,Plz can u tell ,is there any official lolipop update for unite 2…..

  30. krishna says:

    hey. how many ram space does it take after upgrading android lollipop in a106 8gb rom.

  31. Antony says:

    Sir, by internet news the lollipop ota update will be launched in april 17 2015. But why the ota update isn’t yet available. Pls tell the date bro

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      That will be available, not sure why the officials didn’t roll the OTA update yet.

      • sravan kumar says:

        Sir what is the app installation space on 8gb model after lollipop update

  32. Arani Dey says:

    After updating to lollipop, facing some issues over default write disk and moving apps and game data to external SD card. A mild lag is in the dialer app. The Micromax Checkpoint guys told that they can’t reverse it to kitkal before the 30th day from the day of the lollipop update for some IMEI No issues. In terms of utility, it’s not a worthy update at all. New UI and material design of lollipop can make you pay by limiting the storage. Think again. Looking for 19th May to uninstall the lollipop update and get the Kitkat version from the service centre so that I can avail the OTA update.

  33. sucharan says:

    I got my unite 2 updated from Micromax service center and it is free and android lollipop is awesome

  34. Its almost 2 weeks past from releasing lollipop udpate still i didnt get notification of update n even tried on software update

    • shambhavi Pathak says:

      Go to the service centre, they will upgrade your phone within half an hour for free(if your phone is under warranty period) , otherwise they will charge 100 Rs . for it.

  35. Neil says:

    Hey , guys I’m new and just 14 , so today went to Settings>About phone>Software Update…it said “Your device software is up to date” , but via the net , it has been said the update has already come out for Canvas Unite 2(my phone) , so must I go to a service centre? It’ll be better right?
