Update Micromax A116 Canvas HD To Official Jelly bean 4.2

How to install Official Jelly bean 4.2 on Micromax A116 Canvas HD 


Canvas series is the most famous series of Micromax and canvas HD is one of them.Now it is coming with the taste of latest android version 4.2.Micromax has rolled out the official Jelly Bean 4.2 update for the Canvas HD  handset. The update adds OTA features and users will also be able to move / install apps on external storage.
Some users had sent email to Micromax about the release and they replied back saying that there is no update for A116. I think it will take some time for Micromax to move the update to the service centres and probably many of the Micromax staff and service centres are not aware of it.

 NOTE:- Before you proceed do it at your own risk. This process may damage the handset and will void the warranty. So, proceed at your own risk. 

Things Needed
  1. Sptools [Download Link]
  2. Firmware file [Download Link]
  3. Mobistel Cynus T1 drivers [Download Link].

( In case there is no activity either the drivers are not properly installed or you can try disconnecting the phone, remove battery and insert it again (do not start the phone), just connect and see if that works).
