I have followed xda since I got my first Micromax a70. I recently bought a new Karbonn a93. It has an mtk 6572 chip set with 4.2.2 (jb?) The first thing I did was I got mtk droid tools and created scatter file. Used that file in sp flash tools and did a read back creating a file that I loaded in mtk droid tools, auto created cwm and saved the backup folder. I flashed auto made cwm with sp flash tools. I also flashed the patched boot.img it created. Got supersu zip and flashed it. Phone is working perfect. I use only root explorer.apk and xposed installer for transparent status bar. No problems so far. Cwm backup created and saved. All this after murdering two phones. I am happy and wish to thank xda for the excellent work you are doing. I have some questions l, I hope I am posting in the right forum.
1. Is mtk droid tools and sp flash tools safe? Never knew anything to create cwm automatically so bit apprehensive.
2. Supersu superuser and superuser by koushik datta, which is best and why? Can't update koushik app
3. Any suggestions about xposed installer I mean what all is recommended for good performance?
4. What suggestions does xda have for me to upgrade to kitkat?
Thank you once again , you helped me root this phone in one day. Keep up the good work. Will buy this app soon.
Oh and yes. The patched boot.IMG I flashed, it didn't change to.secure value. Then what is that patched boot.IMG?
