Bolt A36 smartphone by Micromax made its entry to this concentrated Indian smartphone market in 2014 with outdated Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box. The reason for this old Android is that this is basically a low-range device with just 256MB of RAM and single core processor which can only handle this OS. However if you are confident of your A36, then I suggest to root your phone and install some custom ROM based on Android 4.4 KitKat.
If you are ready to take my advice then follow our instructions to root your Micromax Bolt A36 smartphone on your Windows computer so you can try custom ROMs based on latest Android OS on your old device. Once the device is rooted, you can easily install CWM recovery on it (Google it). Please make sure you go through safety guidelines mentioned below before proceeding with tutorial:
- Make sure you have complete backup of your data including Calls logs, Contacts, SMS and other app data.
- Your Micromax Bold A36 should be fully charged. If it isn’t, it should have at least 85% of charge remaining so the process goes smooth without any trouble.
