Yu Yureka rooting guide, unlock bootloader and Custom recovery


A custom recovery is the world to some beautiful custom ROMs and to ROOT your device.
If you agree with me then you do understand the need of a custom recovery for a device.
Micromax Yu Yureka was recently released to market and today we have CWM and TWRP custom recovery for the same.
Although this device comes with CyanogenMod pre-loaded out-of-box but there are also some other good ROMs you can try on youor device and you can enjoy the benefits of rooting a device.

Installing custom recovery on your device may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data.
Before proceeding further you may consider backup your all data.
Understand the fact that you are the only person responsible for everything that you do with you device.
If you blame me for a disaster that happened to your device then I will simply laugh at you.

Before going into details make sure that you have the following things in hand to start with the installation guide.
Required things:

– Recovery image for your corresponding device from the following links:
TWPR custom recovery for Yu Yureka
CWM custom recovery for Yu Yureka
Philz recovery for Yu Yureka
Fastboot and adb binaries
SuperSU v2.27 Flashable package by chainfire
– USB cable and USB drivers (USB drivers will be automatically installed on a Windows machine after connecting the device using usb cable)
– Enough time with a smart and cool brain

You may follow the below link to backup all the data on your android device:

STEP by STEP ROOTing guide for your Yu Yureka:

The complete process will be split into three things as following:
– Unlocking the Bootloader
– Installing a custom recovery
– Installing the ROOT package using a custom recovery

Unlocking the Bootloader:


Turn the phone off.
Then boot it into the bootloader/fastboot mode by holding volume up + volume down + power.


Open a command console and go to the directory where you have extracted adb and fastboot
Type the following command in the console:

$ fastboot devices

This command will list the connected devices.
If your phones serial number shows up you are good to go and may continue.
If the phone is NOT listed this indicates that your drivers are not installed correctly.
In order for you to continue you must configure your drivers properly so that your phone is listed under fastboot devices.


If the phone has been recognized by the command above, proceed to unlocking the bootloader with the following command::

$ fastboot oem unlock

Remember that this step will wipe EVERYTHING off the phone.
If you have not taken a backup of your phone data then do it here:

Flashing a Custom Recovery:


Find out the appropriate custom recovery for your device.
Copy the custom recovery into the directory where you have kept the adb and fastboot files.


Now type the following command to install the custom recovery image onto your Nexus device:

$ fastboot flash recovery <recovery_image_file.name>

Place the recovery image name in the <recovery_image_file.name> field.

$ fastboot reboot


Yu Yureka Rooting guide:

Rooting guide will only work only after the custom recovery installation.
If you will SKIP the custom recovery installation process and perform only these steps then rooting will not be done.


Copy the SuperSu zip file to your phone (By using a USB cable or via adb push command).


After copying the SuperSu zip file to your SD card you have to go to the recovery and there you have to install this zip file.
Press vol up + vol down + power button to go to recovery

Or use the following command in a command console:

$ adb reboot recovery



Select Install zip from sdcard option in your recovery.
Select the SuperSu binary zip file where you have kept in the SD card.

Enjoy the rooted yu Yureka and all that rooted features and all beautiful custom ROMs for your device.

Have fun and stay tuned to get more updates.
