  • Amit Gurung

    Hi Pawan, I am using MM A56, I am also keen to know about rooting up the phone and what are the consequences of rooting up a phone. Does it enhance the performance of a phone? Also my phone is not getting charged, no matter how long I try. it shows that battery is charging but the the percentage is not rising up above 8, 10 or 15 percent., someone told me that its a software problem, is it possible? Please post the tut and drivers for A56 and help me to sort out the battery issue.

    • Pavan

      Hi Amit,
      You should probably try doing hard reset. Software issues will get resolved by this.
      If this doesn’t work go to the MM service center.
      I will definitely update here if I come across any rooting guide for A56.
