Hello guys, Karbonn has recently launched four new Smartphones in the previous week. Though we may like the stock rom, it will have bloat applications and bugs and low memory problems and many! So you guys may be thinking of rooting your phone as soon a tested method is released for your Smartphone.Today, I will be posting about the rooting method of Karbonn A90 and yes!It is tested for sure.First of all,let us take a glance in the features of Karbonn A90 and its price tag.

The display is a 4-inches capacitive touch screen display with touch points up to five in number. The processor is a 1 Ghz processor and we are not sure about the chipset, but probably it should be a Qualcomm MSM7*** one. The primary camera is about 5 Megapixels and the front camera is a VGA camera. It contains a 3.5mm audio jack. It is a dual sim phone.Karbonn A90 come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.The key specifications of Karbonn A90 are :

Instructions to root Karbonn A90 :

  • Download the Bin4ry tool and extract it on your Desktop, in a folder.Using any extracting tools like Winrar, Winzip for that purpose.

  • If required,go to the “Android SDK tools” folder.Open SDK Manager application.Select the Android 4.0.3,Android SDK tools and Android SDK Platform tools check boxes and install the packages.This is not actually required,but still if you face any trouble in the below process,these are recommended in that case.
  • Connect your Smartphone to the computer using the USB Datacable and enable USB debugging.Note that enabling USB debugging is a very important step and so, don’t skip it!
  • In the Bin4ry folder,open Runme.bat
  • A Command Prompt dialog box will be displayed with On-Screen instructions.Type “1″ and press enter, to enter into the Normal mode.

    Hi, I was in India a few weeks ago, and i bought the Karbon A90. When buying I asked if the phone was unlocked and could be used in my home country Jamaica, the seller told me yes. However this is not so. If i follow these rooting steps, will this allow me to unlock the phone to be used by Jamaican cell providers?
