Before proceeding further we would like to let you know that rooting voids warranty. Rooting is a confusing process for all new users, however by following up the guide below you can easily root your Micromax Canvas L.

Why to root?

Our Android devices can offer us with a much better performance and some awesome mods, but for doing them all there is a basic need known as ROOT. Rooting is a process which helps us to gain administrative access which is further required by specially written apps to perform the specific mods.

Most of the people think that Rooting will cause damage to their device and they will end up the bricking their device, yes it is true that one may brick if he/she doesn’t follow proper instructions however you can flash the STOCK ROM any time and get your device as it was on the first boot and revive back your device. Also I’ll like to inform up that Rooting alone won’t do wonders, but it will help you in doing the wonders by giving you Superuser access.

So before proceeding ahead here are the things that you need to download.


And make sure your device has at least 75% + and you have enabled USB Debugging. If not, go to Settings–>About phone–>tap the build number 4-5 times and that will enable Developer Settings if it is not present by default. Then, follow settings–>Developer options–>Enable USB debugging.
