Micromax Flagship Canvas Knight is an Android 4.4.2 Kitkat device. It is packed up with quite a good specification and is a great device. Before proceeding ahead, I would like to inform one thing that Rooting voids warranty, but once rooted you can unroot it anytime.
Rooting has been always something confusing for all new users, but by following the guide below you can successfully root your device.
Why to root? Read Rooting FAQs
Our Android device can do a lot of awesome things, but for all of them the basic necessity is to ROOT our devices. Rooting is a process which helps us to gain Administrative access which further helps to modify system core files.
Most of the people believe that rooting their devices will damage it and they’ll end up losing warranty, although it’s true that one loses the warranty of the device, but one can always flash up STOCK ROM of their device and get back the device as it was at first boot, also many people say that they rooted up their device, but nothing happened, so I would like to point up a fact that rooting alone won’t help your device to do wonders but it helps you to give SUPERUSER Access which is required for special written apps.
So before proceeding towards the way to root your Canvas Knight, here are few goodies you need to download.
- Canvas Knight Root Package
