Pin It

Released in April 2014, the Doodle 3 was one of those neither here nor there sort of phones that Micromax seems to be so keen on throwing on it’s customers. Equipped with a gigantic 6 inch screen, this device fails to deliver in performance as might be expected from a phablet. However the cheap price may have allured quite a few multimedia lovers to get a hold of the Doodle 3. Now if you’re one such person we have the root methods for your device. Now you may wonder why you’d even consider rooting your device since it will void your warranty. Well. for starters it is to sae your internal storage from Micromax and your cellular data too.(For more info on how micromax is stealing your data read here)


Pre Requisites

  • Your mobile must be more than 80% charged
  • The ability to follow instructions!


  • The framaroot apk. You can download it from this link
  • Mobile Uncle tools from the Google Playstore. Download it from here.
  • The ClockworkMod recovery file. Download the recovery image by clicking here.

But before we begin a few warning words. Rooting an Android phone voids it’s warranty. We here at take no responsibility for your device if it is anyhow damaged in the process described below.

With that said, let’s get this show on the road,

Step 1

We will enable the ability to install 3rd party apps apart from the play store. This is done because the framaroot apk is not available in the Playstore and we need it to root the device. We go into Settings>Security>Device Administration>Unknown Sources. Click on it once to enable it.

Step 2

Install the previously downloaded framaroot app on the phone. You can find the icon in the app drawer once installation has been completed.


Step 3

Open the app and scroll down to the Barahir option. Click on it.

Step 4

Once rooting is successful, restart your device.

Step 5

Once you’re done with that we move onto the next step that is, installing the Mobile Uncle tools


Step 6

Once installed, open the app and scroll down to update recovery and click on it.


Step 7

The app will search for the previously downloaded recovery file and install it.

And that’s it you’re all done. Congratulations on having rooted and set up a custom recovery on your Canvas Doodle 3. A whole world of ROMs now await you. If you have any questions, queries or thoughts, please leave them in the comment section below. We’d love to help you out!

    I was hoping this method would work. But was stuck at step 2 itself,
    frama root gives the following error – “Your device seems not vulnerable to exploit included framaroot”

    i hope that you can provide us some other method to root micromax doodle 3 or find a loop hole to the problem mentioned above

    thank you

    Hey thanks for the quick replies, i am not that great with this stuff. i understood the screenshot from step 6 but got few questions –

    where to put the super su file? and how do i flash the “” FILE. would be great if u provide another tutorial for this method with the screenshots like above.

    really wish that frama root or the other root programmes start working for mixromax canvas doodle 3, would make it soooooo much easier.

    thanks once again :)

      Put the SuperSU file on the root of your sd card. By that I mean on the page which you open first in a file manager.
      To boot into recovery mode, power off your phone. Hold the volume up and power button. You should boot into CWM recovery.
      Once you do that, click on install and choose the zip and then finally click on yes.
      I can’t post screenshots because the phone I had with me was rooted with framaroot. Sorry!
