    Hi Rahul,
    I have just updated my canvas 2 colors to kitkat 4.4.2 like Chandra, but through online update released a few days back. I have since unrooted it through Frameroot using Barahir (Boromir didn’t work). After this I partitioned my external SD card into FAT32 and ext2 partitions with Drive Label letters “G” and “*” and then downloaded Link2SD app so that I could move apps along with their data and apk… but when I select “ext2” in the pop up that comes after opening Link2SD app that says “Select the file sustem of your SD card’s second partition”, I get an error message saying “Mount script cannot be created. mount: No such device”.
    I think this has something to do with nand unlock, but not sure.
    Could you please suggest on what I am doing wrong here.
    Limited internal storage in Canvas 2 Colors is such a pain. 🙂
    Thanks for your help.

    • chandra says:

      hey ravi r after updating to kk frameroot app working ? Before u unrooted ?. Which version frameroot u had used. Reply plz

  9. Proximity sensor is not working properly in my canvas a120. Plz solve the problem

  10. Hi
    Terribly upset with latest kitkat update for A120, I went to service center to downgrade. First they said it was NOT possible. Then added we can only try, not guarantee. Then they said, it might burn your motherboard and it may take many days to get a replacement.

    Would like to know what’s your take on it? Is it so difficult to downgrade or are they just avoiding the task?

    I will appreciate if you could put your assessment. Thanks for all the valuable advise on this site.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      No, It’s not difficult. You can flash the stock 4.2 JB ROM to your device. Google the guide and follow it carefully.

  20. Hey rahul thanks for this simple yet useful guide… i have a question .. i got canvas 2 colors with 8GB ROM with KITKAT 4.2.2. I am facing “insufficient memory” error due to its low phone storage(all apps are installing in phone storage by default which is near about 0.9 GB). Some apps are movable to external SD card and some are not, apps which are movable still consumes my phone storage. Is there any way i can physically move apps to my SD card? Will rooting solve my problem? Any custom ROM available for my device? Waiting for your valuable response. Thanks in advance

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Yeah, if you are rooted download link2sd n with it you can move unmovable apps too.

    Mr. Rahul, I have Micromax Canvas 2 Colours A120, 4.4.2 Kitkat version. All my apps are getting downloaded into the phone storage (which shows 0.89GB capacity) instead of the internal memory card which I had selected as default write storage. I am unable to update my regular apps too as the space has been filled. Please help to free my phone storage and fill my internal sd card which has 5.26GB free and refuses to get filled or be brought into use in anyway.
    Will be very grateful if you can help me out.
    Thank you very very much, in advance 🙂 🙂
