I have a Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114 which is soft bricked. I am trying to get into recovery mode after flashing CWM Recovery image using fastboot with the following command:

# fastboot flash recovery /tmp/recovery.img

The command gives the following result:

sending 'recovery' (6144 KB)...
OKAY [  0.233s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  1.098s]
finished. total time: 1.332s

However, when I try to get into the recovery mode, it doesn't boot into recovery and go into reboot again having infinite loop cycles.

How do I fix my phone?


Attempting to directly boot into the recovery doesn't work. Console remains stuck on booting... and device doesn't boot at all.

# fastboot boot /tmp/recovery.img
downloading 'boot.img'... 
OKAY [ 0.204s] 
  • The chipset your device has is supported by SP Flash Tools. Find the ROM here and flash it using that tool. You can also flash the recovery partition alone and see if the device reboots into your CWM recovery this time.

First of all thanks to @Firelord for pointing me to SP Flash Tools and giving the link of stock ROM.

In case anyone ever stuck with this problem in future, I would like to tell I got my phone recovered by following this tutorial:
