Step 3: You will see an SP tool window, now click on the scatter-Loading option in the SP tool. Then you will get the new tab of SP Tool which you ask the location of the scatter file on your PC. You will find this scatter file in the extracted Stock ROM folder. Now go to the Rom folder and select the file “Android_scatter_emmc.txt”. See in this image.


Step 4:  Now You will see two options for flashing Rom, first is “firmware upgrade” option which is used to update or flash your Rom without deleting your data and second one is “Download” option this is work for format your phone then flash Stock Rom ( like fresh Rom installation). So choose according to your requirement and I suggest, click on the “Download” option and flash fresh Rom on your phone.

Step 5: Now connect your switch off phone to the PC via USB cable  (Make sure your phone is switched off). SP Tool detect your phone and process will start. See in blow image. If Sptool is not recognize/detect your phone then install vcom driver read this post it will help you click here  (Driver already in phone flash drive if you don’t have these drivers then install it)

      Hi Yashwanth

      update process will work without Enable debugging mode but safe side it must be on. In case phone is damage during this process then phone service center alive your phone by debugging mode.

    I was doing this but for some reason, every time I download, the red bar fills in a few seconds but then nothing else happens…. the timer keeps running but the meter stays at 100% red. What should I do?

    NOTE: My Micromax canvas HD is formatted including the bootloader.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sir ji my MMX a116 is locked by pattern lock by mistake.n its not be open with my gmail I'd.pls help me what can I do?

      1. Go to the Android Market download page on your desktop and install the app. (Yes, you are able to install apps using your desktop instead of your phone) Direct link: (note: You need to login to the Android Market using your Google username and password that you used when you first set up your phone. This is the username and password that “should have” unlocked your phone in the first place.)

      2. Select the phone you have (this is why you need to login with the right Google ID) and install the app. Wait about 5 minutes or restart your phone and wait a good amount of time for the app to fully install.

      3. On the app instructions, it says to install any other app to trigger the Screen Lock Bypass app. I did not do this but for me, restarting the phone, waiting, soft off and on seemed to trigger it. (may have been triggered by a message though, this is the part where it unexpectedly blanked and disabled my screen for a good while.)

      4. If it worked and bypassed the “too many pattern attempts” screen, go to phone Settings and then select Accounts & Sync.

      5. Under Manage Accounts, remove all accounts except your Google account. (this should enable your Google username and password)

      6. Go to Settings and select Applications, then Manage Applications.

      7. Find Screen Lock Bypass and uninstall the app. (this will trigger the “too many pattern attempts” screen immediately)

      8. Use your original Google username and password to finally unlock your phone properly.

      9. Enter your new security pattern twice to finish!

    By updating to V2 ROM, can we able to transfer application and games directly to External SD card, as in V1 ROM we are only able to transfer to internal SD..

      Brother, i am using A116 not A110, u have given me V3 link for A110….

      By the way i wanna tell than now also i have selected preferred location as External SD card but than also it doesn't get installed in external SD card…

      Everything goes under Phone Storage or Internal SD card…

      By going to Setting->Application than after selecting any application whichever u wanna move to external sd card but over there u will get option only to move to internal sd card not external card…

      Thats wat i was asking that after updating A116 with V2 ROM, will this issue will get resolved or no….

      And is this a official update or no…

      Check it out and reply me…
