How to Root Karbonn Smart A111

Smart A111 is a creation of Indian manufacturer Karbonn Mobiles. They are known for making smartphones that run Android. They are not as widely recognized as, say, Samsung or HTC, but they are quite successful in their homeland.

This time they are offering this handset that we mentioned; its target is made of people who cannot afford other (more expensive) phones. The specifications and features that the Karbonn Smart A111 sports are not that impressive, but they aren’t bad either. Here are the most important ones: a 5″ touchscreen, 512 MB of RAM and a 1.2 GHz CPU.

However, you will soon find out that this kind of processor is not that great, in the sense that you won’t be able to multitask or play more demanding game titles. That’s why a developer created a root method that applies only to this smartphone.
