Very few Indian consumer electronics brands have been able to find success in the Indian market like what Micromax did in a short period of time. From being a small company selling rebranded feature phones to dethroning Samsung as the largest mobile phone manufacturer in India for some time, it has come a long way. The company tasted this success riding on the back of value for money offerings which provided a great price to performance ratio to the value-conscious Indian users at a time when Samsung phones were considered overpriced. The company launched many smartphones under its A brand and the Canvas brand which sold like hot cakes in cities as well as tier 1 and tier 2 cities.
Micromax A102 was a budget offering, providing great value for money and good quality hardware, and the latest android software at that time. This made it one of the favorites of smartphone buyers in India. The phone was so good that even today, many people use it as their primary driver for daily use.
But being an Android device, it also has its share of software problems. Like any other android device, with time the software performance of the device deteriorates. This causes many problems in the day to day functioning of the device.
The best method to get rid of such software problems is to reinstall the flash file firmware on the device.
In this article, we will discuss and see how exactly we can reinstall the flash file firmware on the device.
What is Micromax A102 flash file?
A flash file is a software package that consists of various components. These components must work together to make sure the device is working smoothly and without any problems. The most basic and important components in a flash file are Operating system (OS), bootloader, kernel, recovery image, etc.
The operating system is the user-facing and consumer-centric part. It basically takes inputs from the user and passes on the information to the hardware through the kernel. The operating system is also responsible for resource allocation for completing various tasks. The kernel acts as a translator for the operating system to interact with the hardware. It provides the interface for the Operating system to communicate with the hardware. In the same way, the main purpose of the bootloader is to load the operating system in-memory every time the phone is restarted. Similarly, a recovery image handles the updates and protects the data every time the phone software is updated to a newer version.
For any device to work properly without any hiccups, all these components of the phone’s software must work seamlessly with each other. If there is a problem with even one component, there can be problems with the device. The problems can be as small as occasional lags in the user interface or can even render the phone useless. The most common problems include unexpected shutdowns, abrupt and frequent restarting of the phone, app freezing while using the device, overload on hardware components, sudden unexpected shutdowns, boot loops, etc. Reinstalling the flash file onto the device will help to solve all these issues easily. It helps in getting rid of all these issues without any hassle of keeping the device with the service center for days.
