Karbonn mobiles has launched many low budget mobiles in succession, and one such device is the Karbonn A6. Running on Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and 512MB RAM, the device packs good hardware for it’s low cost. But one serious problem with the device is it’s very low internal memory of only 104MB. As we know, this is not enough to run even a low graphic game. But, by rooting your Karbonn A6, you can easily swap the internal and external storage of the device, and get better memory for all your needs.

Recently we did a root guide of the Karbonn A12+, but the Karbonn A6 has completely different hardware and software, thus its rooting method is also different.

The device can be rooted by using VRoot application, which is a Chinese(or Japanese, I don’t understand either !) app, but is very effective.

Prerequisite Stuff

  • A Karbonn A6. 🙂
  • VRoot Rooting Application.
  • Karbonn A6 PC drivers, for 32 bit, or for 64 bit.
  • Ensure that your Karbonn A6 is charged to at least 60%, so that it doesn’t die while we are rooting it.
  • A PC or laptop.

Rooting the Karbonn A6

  • First of all, enable USB debugging on your device, by going to Settings, Applications, Development, USB Debugging, and there check the USB Debugging option.
  • While rooting your device, you must ensure that the device allows apps from 3rd party, so go to Settings, Security, Device Administration, and check Unknown Sources.
  • Also, to ensure that the A6 doesn’t sleep while the process, enable stay awake option, in Settings, Developer Options > Stay Awake.
  • Now install the USB PC drivers that you downloaded above and install it.
  • Connect your device to your PC or laptop.
  • Now, download and install the VRoot application.
  • Open the application on your PC or laptop, and now tick the check-box beside the big green root button. This is very important, as not doing so can brick your device.
  • Now is the fun time, just click the big root button, and wait for your device to reboot.
  • All done, you have rooted your Karbonn A6.

Unroot the Karbonn A6

If you ever need to give your device to the service center of Karbonn, it is always better to unroot the device, as rooting voids the warranty, so here is the unroot method.

  • First of all, in your mobile, go to play store, and install OTA RootKeeper application.
  • Now open the applications, and touch the button Temp. un-root (keeps backup).
  • This will unroot the device, but keep a backup of the root, so when you get your device back you can root it from this app in one touch.
