As we promised earlier, we did some work on grabbing latest news on Android 5.1 Lollipop update for Micromax Canvas A1 users. After found numerous reports, after having conversation with couple of Android One users who already got this LMY47O update, it seems, Google is rolling out updated OTA package for Canvas A1 users, which is carrying the build number LMY47O. Previously, it was LMY47I. This new build might be intended to fix the earlier memory leak bug and battery draining bug. Google is yet to announce official statement on this.

If you don’t want to wait until the OTA hits your device. Here we are providing OTA zip file but users need to be rooted to install the given file. Read the instructions in twice before going to do anything.

Don’t try this without having proper knowledge on rooting and we don’t encourage this kind of things, so we recommend everyone to wait for official OTA update. We are reporting this for those who cannot wait for official OTA update (Strictly).

An XDA Junior Member named Vyshnav Raj made available stock Android 5.1 Lollipop Nandroid backup ROM for all Android One users, the ROM was extracted from Karbonn Sparkle V, which is carrying similar build number (LMY47I) when you compare to what we reported earlier. It should work on other Android One devices (Indian models) according to other users reports on that thread. Some users already got this OTA update; that’s why, we have extracted build here to download, so this will hit your device very soon. Google is rolling out this update slowly to make sure update process is smooth.

Prerequisites:

  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • Rooted Stock Rom (optional)
  • Philz touch recovery
  • Stock 4.4.4
  • ANDROID ONE (any)

Some other guy using Canvas A1 also reporting about the update. Here is the screenshot. However, Wi-Fi recommended..!! Follow us on social media for more instant updates..!!

Micromax Canvas A1 Android 5.1 update notification

Update:

Some of our readers asked interesting question ??

Here is the answer:

We identified that the navigation buttons looks like Lollipop buttons in the screenshot, but We don’t think this is fake, we believe this is genuine, but the user may root his device and transformed his navigation bar with the help of xposed framework. One thing we should stress that after rooting also, users can get the official update until and unless they didn’t change on system files.

Old Article:

Google stated few weeks ago about the seeding of Android Lollipop update for Android One devices in India but lot of our readers reported that they cannot see any update notification so far. However, it is a gradual upgrade so it would take some time to hit. Despite waiting, we have exquisite news to share with Micromax Canvas A1 owners that they are reportedly getting Android 5.1 Lollipop update (See below image) directly by skipping 5.0 version. The information has been confirmed by some users in Android One development & discussion group.

Micromax Canvas A1 Android 5.1 update screen

As you guys can see, the update is already hitting devices in India. To let you know, Google was announced Android 5.1 Lollipop just a couple of days ago. You can check full features of Android 5.1 here. The update brings the build number LMY47I, and the update file size is 409.8MB. We recommend you to check for the update now, you may not see the update notification right now, but it should hit your device within a couple of days or weeks. This step by Google would eliminate waiting for future updates since this is the latest available Android version.

To check the update Go to Settings -> About Phone -> System updates -> Check now. Make sure, you have 80% or above battery life to get updated to the latest update. Don’t forget to share your opinion with us in a comment section below.

Thanks for the tip Ashiq;

  • Anunay Sharma

    When will others will get the update? I’m from Madhya Pradesh and is this only a one user who reported it? Please tell any timeframe…!!!

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes you will get the update very soon.. Max this month..!!

  • Arshad

    Still waiting for lolipop. Did not received updat yet 🙁

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes lot of people are waiting..!! You will get the update for sure. Not only you, every Android One user will get the update. Google will definitely give better support for their devices, that’s why they are giving Android 5.1 Lollipop update directly for Android One devices in first phase of rollouts.

  • lakhan anjana

    I am from rajasthan and when i will get 5.1
    My friends says that i brought wrong
    But i think Google will do it

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes Google already did it. you will get the update very soon..!!

      • AdErsH

        Is WiFi necessary for the update??

        • WhatsOnTech

          If you want it earlier than others, i would say, yes you need Wi-Fi connection. As you can see in official update screenshot, Google is prioritizing users first based on who connected to Wi-Fi. This was confirmed by Google India executive. However, this will change from March 21st.

      • Harkirat Singh

        ohk.. Let me confirm one major thing. Is there any change in memory mounting as we see in indonesian version?.. or remains same like kitkat version… are you able to move apps in external SD Card after getting ur device updated? as we can’t do it in indonesian version of android 5.1 rom. Please revert back soon. 🙂

        • WhatsOnTech

          Android 5.1 Lollipop is intended for better RAM management so you should see major improvement in RAM usage. We don’t think, Google will provide apps2SD.

  • Souvik

    I am not receiving the update. I live in Bihar & I have WiFi connection.

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes you will get the update.

  • Srinivas

    I think this is fake news. look at screenshots carefully, KK screenshot has LP navigation buttons and text on LP screeshot was blur..

    • WhatsOnTech

      Hi Srinivas, before going to comment here read the updated news first and you know the truth. We already explained about that lollipop navigation buttons so you must and should read the entire article first.

      • pankaj singh

        Can i use my mobile data to update?

  • viraj

    When will we get android lollipop update

  • WhatsOnTech

    Hello Srinivas,
    We publish each and every article after cross checking twice, just headover to top of the post and see, we got another confirmation from our loyal reader, we have updated the screenshot. You can see that the update is for Android 5.1 Lollipop and it is for Micromax Canvas A1.
    Let us explain one thing, we are sincerely providing information for guys who have been waiting for updates since couple of months, that is the reason, we have provided dedicated section on our homepage for software updates. Atleast, we are providing this information, no other website in this world reported this news but what you are doing here for us ? without having proper knowledge about Xposed framework, simply commenting here as “this is fake”. We have explained everything, even though, you don’t agree with us, we cannot do anything for that since this is your problem on understanding technical data. We are trying to explore more possibilities for this and found new screenshot. You are pointing out blurness of the photo, which is out of the point and makes no sense for you. You are always talking about first screenshot, first screenshot was done using Photoshop to provide clear idea that is why it looks blur but it’s not fake. Come out from that and check updated screenshots provided by few more users. What do you say on it ? you think, still it is fake ?. We think you are disappointed about not getting update for your device but we suggest you to wait some more time since Google already reiterated that this update would be available phases wise and it select the devices randomly. One more thing, we were too busy in looking at back end things that is the reason the reply got delayed, sorry for that. We got another update on this to further clarify that this is genuine. an XDA member has posted extracted build, which is also carrying same LMY47I. We think, your doubt is now clarified.

    • Srinivas

      Cool. I understand.. anyways thanks for your information. Seems we need to wait some more time to get the mass OTA update.

  • Vivek Kumar

    What about spice dream uno…??

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes, you will get the update..!!

  • Varun Siranjeevi

    Non WiFi user’s can also get the update?

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes but you have to wait until March 21st. Anyways those who connected to Wi-Fi will have high priority.

  • Arjun

    Should i flash it on my micromax canvas 4 ??

    • WhatsOnTech

      No, You cannot install it on Micromax Canvas 4. This is exclusively for Android One devices. Thank you.

  • Sunny

    Hey vinay do you have any idea when it will come in Delhi&NCR because in the screen shot the networks are shown idea Delhi and reliance Delhi

    • WhatsOnTech

      Hi Sunny,
      The rollout is not happening based on regions instead Google is selecting devices randomly so you have plenty of chances to get the update at anytime. Wait for your turn.

  • Uddeshy Singh

    finally got all the answers that I was looking for on this page after a lot of search..GooD job guys..you made my day
    looking forward to receive lollipop update..☺

    • WhatsOnTech

      Thanks for feedback Uddeshy Singh. We love to hear this from you.
      You will have great time with Lollipop goodies. Stay Tuned, we are working on more exclusively info.

  • WhatsOnTech

    This is hard to explain Yash. As i discussed in article, Google is selecting devices randomly but giving high priority for Wi-Fi enabled users. I’m expecting that mass rollout will start as soon as next week so you have to wait one more week my friend. Thank You..!

  • WhatsOnTech

    No, its problem with Google. Google engineers have to be exact on providing rollout dates for Android One devices. They officially confirmed about the update rollout on its Google Plus page but very minor amount of people got it so far.

    • Krunal

      Okay thanks for the information .. You doing a great job updating the information to us

  • WhatsOnTech

    Yes Rajnish Sinha. Google yet to provide the update for all people but due to undisclosed reasons, they are selecting people and rolling out the update. Ofcourse, this is painful moment for every Android One user. Even Micromax, Sprice, Karboon also don’t know when the update is going to hit for its devices. Strange right.

  • anu

    Hi, First of all thanks for all the info.

    Want to add few things here which I have read it on other website. Few websites has mentioned that the update is reagion based, and to get update on your device keep on check the system update manually this will increase the chance of getting lollipop. I am not sure how much its true.

    I have few doubt please share your comments if you have any info on this,

    will everyone get the 5.1 by 23 march ?

    the memory leak issue which has been reported by few nexux user with 5.1, will affect android one user as well, and if yes then is this recommended to update or not ?

    • WhatsOnTech

      Hi there,
      I don’t think, keep checking for update will improve your chances of getting it. Yes..Memory leak was true but Google partially fixed it, we will probably get Android 5.1.1 update to fully fix it. We got some user reports that after updating to Android 5.1, they are reportedly facing battery issues. We are working on it to further confirm whether it is actually happening or not so if you can wait some more time until Google comes up with official statement, it would be safe bet. Thank You..!

      • anu

        Thanks for quick reply. Please update as and when you have any info on update, on the battery issue and on memory leak issue.

        • WhatsOnTech

          Sure, we will update more info. Keep on Check WhatsOnTech

      • lalit

        Hi I have just connected my micromax andriodone with wi fi hotspot and update msg appeared update untill 31st march over wi fi. Should I update it or wait. Is memory leak issue haunting andriod one or not?? Please tell should I update it atonce or not

        • WhatsOnTech

          There is no word from Google yet on Memory leak but the reports said Google quietly fixed it so there won’t be any problem for you. We would appreciate, if you are able take screenshots of update confirmation and send us.

  • amol kamble

    thank you sir for uploading Backup rom now i am using 5.1 indian version
    thanks a lot…………..

    • WhatsOnTech

      Can you share couple of screenshots with me so that i can further explain about the situation. It would be so helpful for our friends. Please mail me at vinaytallapalli@whatsontech.com

      • amol kamble

        some screenshots from my new 5.1 update

        • WhatsOnTech

          Thanks for sharing valuable screenshots. This will clear lot of confusion.

          • amol kamble

            its pleasure sir keep updating on new version’s.

        • Lalit Srivastava

          Do you facing any memory leakage issue or battery issues friend

  • WhatsOnTech

    That is called luck. Without getting update, how can he extract system image ? Some people indeed got the update. That is reason, we are confident on this news and ready to face any queries from our users. Our ultimate goal is to deliver as much information as possible that is why, we are constantly updating the new in this article. Some people may get frustration due to delay of update but we can understand them. We have explained everything about the update. We did what we can do for you.

    • Saurabh Jays

      Many will get updates may be after 21 march deadline for this crop of users is over.

  • WhatsOnTech

    No ETA, anytime you can get it.

  • WhatsOnTech

    Google might be delaying update due to Memory leak but not sure, we are working on it. Check back our website. Thank you..!

  • Kommera Manjunatha Reddy

    sir pls kindly tell that what is meant by mass rollout is that mean that random selection will stop and all will get it at once…….. pls clear my doubt….. iam using canvas a1

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes mass rollout means everyone will get the update same time.

      • Kommera Manjunatha Reddy

        thank u sir

  • Kommera Manjunatha Reddy

    what is meant by mass rollout sir

  • Mohan Kumar

    Hai I using micromax canvass a1 today 20th march but I can’t get any update in my phone I am in tamilnadu. When I will get update please tell when I got the update?

    • WhatsOnTech

      Today, Lot of people reporting about the update. It seems, Google has speeded up the rollout. It would take couple more days to hit final devices.

      • Mohan Kumar

        I am in tamilnadu then when I will get the update.

  • Rahul

    No sign of update yet…this is very cheap strategy by google

    • WhatsOnTech

      Lot of people reporting about the update. The gradual upgrade process is to eliminate as much bugs as possible. We saw LMY47I before, which had some bugs so Google is rolling out updated LMY47O now to eliminate the worst experience.

      • Rahul

        in which zone the update is being rolled out?

        • WhatsOnTech

          All over India. The update process will continue through out the week so you will get any time.

      • Rahul

        not getting update

  • Kommera Manjunatha Reddy

    sir some sites told that google will complete rollout by 23 march…… i dont think that they will complete rollout for total devices………
    sir pls coment on this…… whats ur opinion……

    • WhatsOnTech

      That is impossible since very few people got the update so far. I don’t think even 10% of the people get the update by this time. It is possible to complete the update in 2 days in case, Google opted for mass rollout like Apple. If Google continue to push the gradual upgrades, then you guys need to wait seriously longer times.
      Another Android One user named Lalith just got the update.

  • Lalit Srivastava

    Hi Boss I live in remote U.P. area. I m watching update message today on wi fi hotspot connecting to get update untill March 31. I want to update it but I want to know whether micromax users are also facing memory leak problem or its only for nexus devices. I have to go a wi-fi centre for updation. Please advise me should I update my set or wait more…. Please answer quickly as I have to go ahead.

    • WhatsOnTech

      Hi Lalit
      Let me explain it briefly, Google hasn’t acknowledged the memory leak issues so far, it was reported by few users “only” and some website reported that Google quietly fixed it but no one knows about the issue exactly that is the reason, we skipped it in our website. We only write if we can confirm it properly. According to my opinion, there won’t be any problem after upgrade to latest build. i recommend you to update to latest version. We also got the reports that Google is rollingout updated “LMY47O” instead of “LMY47I”, which offers battery improvements and even fixed the bugs in LMY47I (You can see above screenshots). I hope this will answer your question, if not post your queries, i’m here to answer your questions.

      • Lalit Srivastava

        Thanx my friend for your valuable advice. I have updated it today evening on wi fi in one hour and I didnt find any issue. Rather I m happy to see everything in new style. Although some apps are bigger than kitkat ver but its totally a sweet crispy lollipop updation. I m highly grateful to you showing always true path to the readers of blog. Go ahead bro. God bless you. Thanx a lot bro.

  • Mrugank

    Hi,
    I got the 5.1 OTA update(micromax A1). But it isn’t starting download and it says not sufficient space to download 409.8 mb since i have more than 550+ mb free internal space and more than 1.5gb on my sd card

    Its really annoying that it isn’t downloading!

    • WhatsOnTech

      The downloaded Zip file would be extracted while installing the update so it would need even more space in your internal memory. Having gigs of memory in external storage won’t help you so free up more memory in Internal storage.

  • Uddeshy Singh

    Successfully updated to 5.1 with the help of your link without rooting my a1..thanks .
    Wanted to wait for ota but they are really very gradual

    • WhatsOnTech

      Congrats..You will have great experience on Lollipop
      Yes..They are too slow indeed.

      • Uddeshy Singh

        Some screen shot if you want

        • WhatsOnTech

          Thank you for posting screenshots.

  • Lalit srivastava

    Hi guys just finished my update amazing smoother n faster xperience no memory prob update ver Lmy470 happppppy nd thank god nd google nd micromax

    • WhatsOnTech

      That good to hear Lalit. Thumbs up..!

  • Nisarg

    can I known what is the total size of the update??

  • Nisarg

    can I known the total size of the update??

    • WhatsOnTech

      Around 409 MB, Some of our readers got the update and they shared screenshots too. I recommend you to check it out. Thank you..!

  • WhatsOnTech

    Yes. You can but it may additionally cost you so please make sure about that.

  • Amit Tiwari

    How can i know the status of download of the update!!!and a message is showing
    “Via wifi until 31 march”…. Can i download it throught mobile data???

    • WhatsOnTech

      Yes..You can download through mobile data but makesure you are connected to faster internet connection like 3G. I don’t recommend initiating update using 2G internet connection due to high fluctuations, which will lead towards software bricking.

      • Amit Tiwari

        After connecting to wifi or mobile data!!! Update is still not downloading!!! How to start downloading???

  • akki

    m not getting ota update…
    how can i got this update…
    m regularly check update…
    bt not get update..

    • WhatsOnTech

      All three Android One devices are getting updates. However, it is gradual update so you will get it anytime by next 7 days.

  • Varun Siranjeevi

    Download not starting at all I am connected with Wi-Fi hotspot it is showing waiting for download

    • WhatsOnTech

      You are facing it due to slower internet connection. Please make sure you are connected to faster connection. Sorry for late reply, we are busy in updating the posts.

  • Varun Siranjeevi

    What to do

    • WhatsOnTech

      It seems your battery is about to dead. In that case, power saver modes will refuse the downloads. Makesure you have atleast 80% when installing and start the download once your battery hit 40%. Eventhough, you are seeing this message means, your internet connection is slow and unstable. There won’t be any other options than this. Thank You..! All the best

  • g.sugan sugan

    I am not get it lollipop 5 in my Micromax Android one how to get it? My native in tamil nadu .

    • WhatsOnTech

      The update isn’t rollingout based on region, it is rollingout gradually so it will take little bit time to see notification in your device.

  • Rahul

    no update yet… what the hell..

  • Rahul

    no update yet… can’t wait more

    • WhatsOnTech

      Micromax already affirmed that the update will hit throughout the week so you may not see it right away but you will get it within couple of days.

  • Rahul

    but there is no confirmation on micromax site..

  • Vipil

    Is the OTA update will erase the data in phone such as contacts,SMS etc ? Am I need to backup my data ? I’m talking about OTA only not the custom install ? Please help. I got it and waiting for you to update.

    • WhatsOnTech

      No, it won’t erase any of your data. Everything would remain same after update including your call history. Thank You..!

  • anu

    Hi, From Micromax site I came to know that this whole week they will be doing lollipop update for canvas A1, but I have doubt on below things.
    1. does the above statment tells that all the Canvas A1 will get the update irrespective of wifi and region?
    2. Is there any trick to get the update ?
    3. Does I need to keep on check the system update status, if not then how will I get the update ?
    4. Is there any perticular time when the update happens, becoz I have wifi connectivity only during day time.
    5. What if all the canvas A1 doesn’t updated by this week i.e. what will be the way to update them later?

    I understand that list of questions are big but I have seen that you always clearify all the doubt of the readers :). So I request you to clearify point by point whereever you have understanding becoz I am eagerly waiting for update?
    Thx in advance.

    • WhatsOnTech

      Hi anu,
      Yeah it’s big question indeed but not a problem.
      1) According to Micromax & Google, you should be connected to Wi-Fi to download it but i have got nearly 5-7 confirmation (with screenshots), whose actually updated over stable 3G connection, even though, it was showing Update only available over Wi-Fi.
      2) I don’t believe in this tricks because they simply don’t work.
      3) I would say no, you will automatically get message as “System update available” in notification panel when you connected to internet.
      4) You will have same chances throughout the day.
      5) The update will rollout throughout the week means, it won’t be stopped once the given period ends. It will continuously available for ever. Eg: If you incase flashed stock Android 4.4 in future with stock recovery with OEM lock, you will be again notified about lollipop system update. I have experienced it lot of times on my Nexus 7.

      Let us know few things – is your device rooted ? If yes, you won’t see any official update notification since it violates Google policies.
      Install “Root Checker” app from PlayStore and run it. It will let you know exactly whether your device is rooted or not. Thank You..!

      • anu

        First of all thanks for detailed answer.

        No, my phone is not rooted.

        • anu

          Looks like the issue was with Availabe Internal memory, I have uninstalled few Apps and the download started. Thx for all your support.
          See attached Pic.

      • anu

        No, Its not rooted.

        • WhatsOnTech

          If you are not rooted and everything is stock then we have no other option except waiting for update since it is problem from Google/Micromax. That’s what i can assist you now.

          • anu

            Hi, Just 10 mins before I have check the system status and got the msg that 5.1 update is avaialable and a restart is required. So I restarted my phone and waited for sometime hoping that download will start automatically but it didnot so I have check the system status again and found that “Waiting for download” Now its been 30 mins and still download is not started. I have checked my wifi connection and all other things and everthing is fine.

            Any idea why still download is not starting, What should I do next. Please reply ASAP. Thanks in advance.

      • Akshay Shah

        I use the App Root Browser, will it prevent the Lollipop update?

        • WhatsOnTech

          Oew..Root Browser is only for rooted users to explore OS level files, which isn’t achievable for non-rooted user. Did you root your device earlier ? If yes, just make sure you are unrooted properly to get the update. You need to check this – Stock build, Stock recovery (to install update but without having it also you can see the OTA notification), OEM lock (should be locked to install downloaded Zip but again you can see and download OTA).

          • Akshay Shah

            I use Root Browser to explore normal files and not system files as in the current Kitkat version there is no other way to see all files / folders. I have never Rooted the device, Also when I run Root checker it says Root access is not proper installed in this device so that means am non rooted, am I correct? Do I uninstall Root Browser for this update? Which other app can I use if not Root Browser to access normal files / folders like DCIM, Videos, SD Card folders etc as in my Android One KITKAT 4.4.4 I do not see any pre built utility for the same! Please guide ASAP.

          • WhatsOnTech

            Hi Akshay Shah,
            After hearing this, Yes..your device is not rooted. You can find tons of browsers in PlayStore. I prefer ES File Explorer. Uninstalling Root browser might help you a bit but not 100% sure because, as i said earlier, you would get OTA even though you have root access (but you should be running on stock build). I think, there is no problem from your side. Wait couple more days, usually, update would take weeks to sometime months to hit every device. Let you know one thing, most of the OEMs prefer to push update based on the device purchase. I mean, if you buy device first, you will get update noticeably quicker than others so calculate your chances.

          • Akshay Shah

            I got the update message now over 3g data pack, updated the device over wifi and seems to be working fine now, just getting to work on lollipop now, one noticeable difference is the speed of the apps, its better compared to kit kat for sure!

          • WhatsOnTech

            Great news buddy. I know how did you suffer during last couple of days. You must be enjoying it now..:P but Keep in touch with us. We are working hard to bring out more news for you. Thanks and have a great time with Lollipop. Wait for 5.1.1 😛

      • Akshay Shah

        It says Sorry! Root access is not properly installed on this device – this means what? Its not rooted right?

  • Mithilesh

    As the roll out begun since 20th march i have not yet recieved amy update stats from android,is it too late? or the rollout is still in process,All my friends have got it!!plz reply

    • WhatsOnTech

      Hey buddy.
      There is absolutely no need to worry. It is OTA update and Google made it clear that the update is gradually rolling out so it will obviously take sometime to hit your device.

  • WhatsOnTech

    Micromax also recommended Wi-Fi connection to download the OTA but i have seen few reports from those who downloaded OTA over 3G connection.

  • WhatsOnTech

    I haven’t heard this kind of issue yet. Restart your device and try to install the OTA if you can see “Restart & Install” button. Otherwise, i will recommend you to backup your entire data and remove the SIM cards, factory reset your device. I hope it will help you but i don’t say you should do this but i’m providing a plausible solution for you. However, it is up to you. Thank you..!

  • Rahul

    no update yet…. what to do… now really getting frustrated..

  • Rahul

    no update yet.. none of my friends got the update…. it seems that the update is not yet rolled out in Mumbai..

  • anu

    Is there any option in Canvas A1 of disbaling the SIM in case it’s not used. I read somewhere that this will be fixed in Lollipop5.1 but I see the same option even in 5.1 which were available in 4.4. Is there any other way.

    • WhatsOnTech

      Sorry, since i don’t have Android One device, it is tough to disclose.

  • manoj

  • Nisarg

    Plz help me this cycle is going on since hours … The downloading has stuck

    • WhatsOnTech

      1) Simply restart your device and try again.
      2) Take a backup of your entire data and reset your device then try to download it. It will work most of the times. Make more space available to extract the downloaded build.
      Note : Download only when you have stable internet connection. Sorry for late reply. I was busy in updating posts.

  • Nisarg

    Finally upgraded to lollipop 5.1 I think it was memory storage problem…and I wanna known that is there any silent button anywhere except in settings because I can’t find it anywhere ..

    • WhatsOnTech

      Thats good to hear from you Nisarg. Unfortunately, the stock build don’t provide silent option except settings.

  • Chetan

    Actually my phone showed me the update “android 5.1 system update” I clicked download then it showed not sufficient memory as it needs 400 something memory though my internal memory is 600 MB free

    • WhatsOnTech

      You need atleast 1GB of memory. You are downloading Zip file, which is in compressed format so it will extract while installing means, you need around 750MB or more internal storage to install it without any hiccups. I would recommend you to make available atleast 1GB internal storage.

      • Jeevan Nidhi

        how do i increase the memory. I tired uninstalling few apps, but it doesnt help. Im unable to move apps to the SD card as well. Please suggest how to increase the space..

  • ranjan dutta

    Is it possible to force stop the download once it is started for Micromax canvas one …it consumes all my data ..

  • ranjan dutta

    I want to force stop the software update while downloading ..it is consuming all my data ..is it possible ..plz tell me as soon as possible

  • melwyn_y2k

    I did by my Micromax A1 (AQ 4501) wanting to use it for a short term though & to get an instant feel of Androi L. However, prior I received the update till date the Software has crashed thrice.

    1> Prior to Android L update it crashed I thought that may be it was I had a lot of apps installed and consumed most of the ROM. So after getting the Software downloaded again from the Service Centre I installed less apps

    2> When I got the message to update to Android L, I realised that I couldn’t download the update as it needed more memory. So had to delete many apps and get the same downloaded and installed

    3> After a couple of months again I started to get the same issues wherein I frequently stated getting messages of various system apps along with other installed apps not responding. So this time before the software could virtually crash I took the phone back to the service centre and got the Old Android One Software installed. When asked for the reason for the Software Crashing frequently they said that it could be because of a Virus, to which I strongly disagree

    4> Just again after 3-4 weeks some of the options like copying or deleting a particular sms from the thread wasn’t working. So I re-booted my phone by removing it’s battery too, only to know that again the Software has crashed and it’s going no further then the Andriod Initial Logo before the Android One is displayed

    I guess that I am done with this phone now.

    Guys please assist and also suggest a good dual sim phone too possible with expandable memory. Am considering to go either for Samsung A7 or E7 or for Mi4i

    Kindly Assist!

    Would also appreciate if you could directly email me your valued suggestions!!

    Thanks & Regard,

    Mel!
