Bootloader Unlock IN 1

Full Guide

Unlocking the bootloader will void your smartphone’s warranty.

I am going to guide you all with the steps for unlocking the bootloader of your Micromax IN 1 smartphone. Previously, we had not seen Micromax active in the custom development, but the whole scenario was changed by Micromax by allowing users to unlock the bootloader of Micromax IN Note 1 and IN 1b. Micromax has done the same with IN 1 as well, and from now you will be able to unlock the bootloader of your IN 1 and explore the full strength of the smartphone by flashing various custom ROMs on it.

Benefits of unlocking Bootloader on your smartphone:-

  • It allows you to install custom recovery on your smartphone.
  • It allows you to install custom ROMs on your smartphone.
  • Furthermore, it allows you to root your device and make you superuser.

DISCLAIMER

  1. After unlocking the bootloader, all of your data will be erased, so create a backup of your important data before proceeding.
  2. Unlocking may modify some system functions and prevent you from updating the system version.
  3. You may end up bricking your device, if not followed the instructions carefully.

Before you proceed

Make sure to have

  • More than 60% charge on your IN 1.
  • A USB type-C cable, using an official cable, is recommended.
  • A PC or an auxiliary smartphone.
  • An OTG-Connector(If using smartphone).
