3. Download the custom ROM for lollipop. There are certain sites offering the download of ROMS, but it may be not suitable to provide the links here.

4. Install ClockworkMod recovery from Play store. You may use the link https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=ClockworkMod&hl=en

I think MicroMax Unite 2 has Official Lollipop update Rolled over ( you can check that in Settings << About Phone << System Updates ) and If your Device hasn't got that Update, you can try Below steps.


1) To get started, download Android Lollipop ROM (not official but it is a Micromax ROM) and SP Flash Tool to your computer. Once done, extract the ROM package and save its contents in a folder in your computer.

Note: This Lollipop ROM works both on 4 GB and 8 GB variants of Micromax Unite 2 A106 Android smartphone.

2) Now install SP Flash Tool and open its Window in your computer. Once done, click on "Scatter-loading" button in SP Flash Tool's window and select the "MT6582_Android_scatter" file from the extracted ROM folder (Step 1).

3) Next, select "Firmware Upgrade" from the drop-down menu in SP Flash Tool. Once done, you will see 11 files loaded in the SP Flash Tool window. Now, switch off your Micromax Smartphone by removing its battery. After a while reinsert the battery of your device but don't switch it on.

4) Now, click on the "Download" button in SP Flash Tool window and connect your smartphone in switched off state to the computer using the original USB Data cable. The flashing will begin and it usually takes 3-4 minutes to get completed. Once done, you will see a success message showing up in SP Flash Tool.
