How to Root Micromax Funbook Tablet

Today, I m going to show you process How to Root Micromax Funbook Android Tablet. Micromax Funbook was a budget priced tablet launched with latest Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich ICS. Moreover it was equipped with a 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 single core processor and Mali-400MP GPU. This Tablet was priced at RS 6999 in India and it has many nice features like HDMI port, capacitive screen and much more. Even I also liked the tab very much and purchased it but there were no rooting guide or apps available for it. But, few days ago on xda developer forum a member shared a sparkyroot apk file that can enabled root user rights on Micromax Funbook.

  4. Micromax Funbook ia pre-rooted , there is no need to root it again. Sparky root does nothing.Download 'root checker' app from the Playstore and check it yourself before you proceed to do anything silly with your device.

  14. funbook inifinity does not work with other dongles than tata photon as per service centre/ their own brand micromax mms 353g dongle which can accept any sim of your choice does not work either/.
    I understand , the f/w supports only ZTE based (tata photon is ZTE china make brand with locked sim ). Huawei and other dongles will not work.
    Above holds good for infinity P275 model and not all others.
