Bro that isn’t working i tried kingo root apk it just saying rooting and keep spinning , framaroot says error #6, towel root says your device is’t supported
reset your phone and try again with any method, it will work.
This guy does not know what he is talking about, he just copied from some other site and pasted it here… do not waste your time with these apps, i have spent 6hs to root and still trying…..
Its not working, the framaroot shows #6 problem and the other one just keep spining. Not working at all.
reset your phone and then try with any method.
Does resetting needs to remove the external SD and sim card too? Also canvas A1 doesn’t comes with default file manager app so resetting once will require to download n installing both these again… I tried resetting it but it doesn’t worked for me till yet…
Can you post a screenshot or video of working OTG of the canvas a1
redmi 1s vs canvas a1
