Happy March 2012 people, since we promised a stable workable rom for the A85/ cherry Magnum / K Touch k700 with Android 2.3 , we are here to deliver in time. 

Before we begin with the update process there are a few things we would like to clear out few important things with you people.

Important Notes 

  1. We do not take guarantee that this rom will work perfectly and could crash / damage / brick your device. So proceed with your own caution.


  2. This ROM has been cooked by iGyaan but is majorly based on the official Cherry Magnum 2x update (you will see once you flash your phone)
  3. We have added bug fixes and tweaks from the Micromax Android 2.2 rom and K-touch K700 Rom to this upgrade.

     

  4. Unfortunately during the update you will loose all data/ apps and most importantly gesture features from the Micromax 2.2 stock rom. So Please Backup Accordingly.

 

 

Here are our finding with this rom.

(Based on 3 test units)

  1. Its very stable = Little or no crashes.
  2. Audio quality is excellent and networks are solid.
  3. Battery performance seemed better / depends on usage.
  4. Very fast and snappy.

 

Okay now that you are aware of the above lets begin with the process.
