How to Root the Karbonn A111

Indian Android Smartphones manufacturer, Karbonn Mobiles, has lately announced its budget-friendly Android device labeled as Karbonn A111. The device sports a large 5″ inch screen and is equipped with a 1.2GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. With these specs, you should be fine with running some normal games but the resource-intensive games, such as from Gameloft, won’t work as smooth as they’d on any high-end smartphone. Recently a root method has been discovered for the device so you can access root-level files and make customizations on your device. In this guide, we’ll show you how you can root your Karbonn A111 smartphone and unlock the true potential of your device!

2. Turn ON the USB debugging function on your device by heading to Menu>>Settings>>Developer options>>USB debugging.

3. Enable the Unknown sources option as well from Menu>>Settings>>Security>>Unknown sources.

4. Connect your device to your PC using the USB cable.

5. Double-click on the SRSRoot executable file and it’ll launch.

      Hello Rahul,

      No official JB update is available for the Karbonn A111. Maybe you should go for a custom ROM that’s based on JB, if there’s any.

      Thanks!
