You might be familiar with Yu Yureka, one of the best mid ranged Android devices from Micromax. Yureka has won the hearts of many people, because of the high end specs for the low price they offer! You might’ve already come across about Yuphoria. Yes, the younger brother of Yureka.

For the price it comes with, it has a lot to talk about from the camera to the performance!

To ROOT the all the new Yu Yuphoria, you’ll have to unlock its bootloader first (incase if you’re a noob)! So, let’s see how you can easily unlock the bootloader first!

How to unlock the Boot loader of the Yu Yuphoria!

Before you continue with the tutorial, don’t forget to turn on USB debugging. (Fire up settings, go all the way down to “About phone” and tap on the build number until it says “You’re now a developer”. Of course you’ll find USB Debugging option in the developer option that will be newly pinned on to the main settings).
1.       Extract the adb_fastboot file to a new folder in your computer (I would prefer C drive for that). (Downloads given at the end of the article)
2.       Now, boot your phone into fast boot mode! Wondering how? Shut your phone down, connect your phone to your PC, while pressing the volume button. Yes, you’ll have to press and hold the volume button (making this tutorial, a little noob friendly).
3.       After the driver installation (now that’s usual on a Windows PC, right?). Navigate to the folder where you’ve extracted adb_fastboot file (the one on the STEP 1). Open command prompt on that window (Hold down shift and right click anywhere in the folder and select “Open Command Prompt Here”).
4.       The command prompt will show up as expected.
5.       Here comes the interesting part (Unlocking the boot loader part). Type “fastboot -i 0x2A96 devices” to see if your machine has actually detected your phone or not.
6.       Now type, “fastboot -i 0x2A96 oem unlock” command to unlock the bootloader (and it easy as that compared to, how you unlock the bootloader of a Motorola device, it’s pretty complicated).
7.       And now, type, “fastboot -i 0x2A96 reboot” to reboot your system (phone)

Install the Temporary recovery!

Now, that’s what you call hotbooting a recovery. To do this follow the below steps!
1.       Copy the “yuphoria-cwm-recovery” file to the folder where you’ve stored the ADB files. Using the same old method, go to fastboot and also open the Command Prompt in that window (don’t make me say that again).
2.       Type down the command “fastboot –i 0x2A96 boot yuphoria-cwm-recovery.img”, and yeah, it’ll boot you into your custom recovery (CWM)

Time to ROOT your Yuphoria

1.       Copy the SuperSU file to you external SD card.
2.       Select “install zip from SD card”.
3.       Navigate to the place where you’ve kept the SuperSU file.
4.       Now, click on “Yes”, and that’s how you flash the SuperSU binaries!
Ta-da! Your new Yuphoria is now ROOTED and you can do all those weird stuffs I do with your ROOTED Yuphoria!
