Micromax Canvas 2 , a phone which made Micromax a renounced brand. With the launch of various phones in the canvas range Micromax has become the top choice of  Indian smartphone market . Today we will briefly discuss how to root canvas 2 smartphone . Before going further let me tell you the most important thing first – Rooting Voids Warranty . Once you root your device you can unroot it anytime .

Root Canvas 2 device

Rooting has been a matter of question for everyone around here, specially a newbie in android world and here we before rooting our Canvas 2 clear some FAQs:

Why You Should Root Your Canvas 2 Device  ?

Well take your phone as a treasure box and its locked, so pirates we need to extract the treasure? Rooting is the gateway, it removes all the restrictions in your device and gives you full access to all the system and allows you to edit/modify it!


  •   What about my warranty, I lost it eh?

Yes, you lost it , but the best part about canvas 2 is you can always flash the stock ROM completely factory made and get back your device like it was on first boot.


  • I rooted, my device has nothing new.. just a SU app

Well, rooting alone won’t make your device a beast, the SU app is a permission granter and through that gate , specially written apps can access all your system and do some wonders, yes a lot of wonders!
So just rooting wont upgrade your android OS/ROM. For that you can find other articles here


  • Will It damage my device?

No it will not if u have a lil common sense, Just know what you are doing . Rooting alone wont do any damage to your device!

Ok so now we move over to rooting this phone, you need some apps on your pc, a brain, your phone, data cable


Note : Make Sure your phone is fully charged or at least 70-80% charged .

      3) Switch OFF Phone..
      4) Remove Battery..
      5) Connect mobile to PC while holding Volume + button [WITHOUT BATTERY]..
      6) Flashing will be started
      7) Hold the button till flashing completes…
      8) After 100% Flash,Release Button..
      9) Insert Battery..
      10) Start Device..

    • You can visit canvas 2 xda forum for more info (Google it)
      If flashed well nothing will damage.

  29. kartik says:

    will it keep all the data and apps intact or the restore will delete everything ?

    • You can take a backup of your data but it’s not required while rooting as the data remains there.

      • kartik says:

        how about apps… will they be intact or do i have to install them again ?

        • I have the same doubt. Will I have to take backup of all the data in my Internal SD and Internal Storage? Is there any chance that my apps or data will suffer?

          • In Case of rooting backup isn’t required. But if you want to take a backup, take it of the internal SD card.

    Hi. I’m currently using canvas 2 jellybean, the features are great but of recent I’ve started facing issues with my phone. I had installed some apps/games from Google store but when im using them there’s a small alert at the top right corner which says low memory despite moving them to my SD card and the app/game stops midway. What could be the reason???
    I also tried doing a factory reset and re-install but still the app/game still misbehaves and doesn’t work.

    • Which game? Tell me its size and tell me one more thing. Go to settings–>apps–>Running. How much amount of memory is free?

  34. shubham bisht says:

    i have jelly bean on my phn..when i try to root it an error comes which says ‘ping is not recognized…’

    • Don’t try rooting with the steps mentioned above. The above method works for C2 running on ICS.
