    hey guys don’t worry about rooting your mmx a120
    :- just find KINGROOT.APK from google and install it to on your phone and just click on root button
    after few seconds you got (true mark) on your screen.
    that’s it.
    if you have doubts just install root checker on your phone and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!
