The Karbonn Mobile A7 looks a lot like those HTC smartphones having curved corners and sleek style, especially the silver color makes phone look beautiful. The phone sports a 3.5″ inch capacitive touch screen and on the back, you’ll find a 5 MP Camera with flash to capture still images. The phone provides Android Gingerbread experience to users, however, you’ll find it a bit disappointing if you’ve been using an ICS device before. Well, the phone has got a root method to uncover the true potential of the device and eventually install some custom ROMs. And in the following guide, we’ve explained how you can root your Karbonn Mobile A7 device with the easiest method available. Let’s get started:
