Now, as a proud owner of Karbonn A12+, you would be eager to root the phone and start customizing it in every possible way. Right from removing the pre-installed apps to taking backups, everything can be done after rooting your beloved Karbonn A12+.

Here’re some instructions that you should follow before starting to root Karbonn A12+.

Pre-rooting Instructions

  • I’m not sure how much you’re familiar with these terms like rooting etc but I would recommend you to read as much as possible before getting into it.
  • Everyone makes mistakes. Its OK to acknowledge them but its not OK if you’re committing them without reading proper instructions.  I’m here to help you out throughout this rooting process and you can reach me up through the comments section below.
  • Please post your queries or problems through this specific comments section only because that will help me in organizing things properly. Besides, other fellow members can read those replies and figure out the answers to their questions.
  • It’s highly recommend that your phone i.e., Karbonn A12+ should have minimum of 75 percent battery before carrying out the steps mentioned here.
  • Remember – Rooting your Karbonn A12+ will result in removal of warranty. You may or may not be able to get the warranty back.  While some suggest that un-rooting the phone regains warranty, I would not agree to it completely. The bottom line is – If your phone’s manufacturer (Karbonn; in this case) finds out you’ve rooted your phone and un-rooted it back, the warranty wouldn’t be considered.
  • Backup – There could be some important files on your phone. Generally, rooting doesn’t delete/wipe anything from the phone or SD card but its safe to take the backup of all those important files.
