Hey, IN 1b users!

How are you? We hope you all are good and having great fun with your smartphone. We have something important to share for unlocking the bootloader on your IN 1b. Finally, people who love to explore new custom features on their phones would be able to do the same on their IN 1b.

Please read the disclaimer carefully before proceeding with unlocking the bootloader on your device.

Disclaimer

1. After unlocking your phone, ALL OF YOUR DATA WILL BE ERASED! Backup before you proceed.
2. Unlocking the Bootloader may have unforeseeable impacts on your phone.
3. Some functions may not operate properly because of third-party firmware- like the camera, audio functionality, etc. It can damage the device too.
4. Personal and confidential information on phone may get leaked and your privacy may get compromised.
5. Unlocking may modify some of the system functions and prevent you from updating the system version.

Pre-requisite for unlocking the Bootloader

1. IN 1b - with minimum charge level of 60%
2. 1 x USB C type Cable

FAQs

Q1: How to re-lock the Bootloader?

If you have flashed custom system image, don’t lock the Bootloader, otherwise the device will not boot up.
If you have not used custom image, use the following commands from fast boot mode.
- Enter the command: fast boot flashing lock
- Press “Enter” on your keyboard.

Q2: Are there any risks after unlocking the Bootloader?

Please be aware that Micromax can’t guarantee full functionality and will not be responsible, for any third-party unsigned custom ROM being flashed onto your device after the Bootloader is unlocked. An unsigned third-party custom ROM may not have gone through the thorough tests that we run for each device and software version that we release.
A third-party custom ROM may not work properly on your device, certain functions and services may cease to work. The performance and device data may also be affected and may damage the device permanently. In the worst case scenario, unlocking the Bootloader will cause physical injuries or material damage through explosion due to overheating of the device.

Q3: Will it affect future OTAs after unlocking?

Unlocking the Bootloader may cause for the secure user data partition to become inaccessible. Yet if you simply unlock the Bootloader (without flashing custom recoveries or rooting) you will still receive official software updates (OTAs).
But we cannot guarantee that you will still receive updates if you do operations other than simple unlocking the Bootloader (such as flashing custom recoveries, rooting, etc).
Once you re-lock the Bootloader and use the official recovery, you will receive official OTAs again.

Q4: Will it affect warranty?

Q5: How to re-flash the official ROM after installing a custom ROM?

Users need to go to the nearest service centre to flash the device

Thanks for the information. I ordered two Micromax In 1b 64gb 4gb. I'm very happy with it.

Please give the scatter file for Micromax In 1b. So that we can easily backup our firmware. It's a kind request.

Waiting for your reply.
