What is the best way to root my Micromax A87?

My phone RAM shows only 160MB, but I only access about 120MB.
I want my phone to run faster.

Or is there any common method for rooting my phone.
Kindly help me.

  • Just by rooting you will not make your phone run faster. You may have to do a lot like throttle CPU speed, manage memory etc to achieve it. Of course, for all these you have to root your phone.

  • I added a link to your question on our rooting index. You might want to have a look over there, maybe one of the described "general methods" applies to your device. If you succeeded, don't forget to update that fact here -- you might even answer your own question, describing the steps involved, if nobody else did that here ;)

  • Just realized now that Micromax devices are already rooted! Yep, this is true at least for Micromax Funbook Tablet and Micromax A110 phone. Install and run Root Checker which will reveal whether your device is already rooted.

A XDA thread speaks about rooting MicroMax A87 Ninja which seems to be quite easy and broken into following easy steps:

  1. Preparation of computer which includes downloading JDK, SDK, ADB driver and One click tool to root.
  2. Connect the phone and run the root tool.

I am skipping on rest of the details as the XDA thread enumerates its details.
