1) ROM installation process is a data loss process. So, use an app like Helium or something else to take complete back of your personal data in the smartphone.

2) Make sure that your Karbonn A1 device is rooted and you have CWM recovery installed in it. If you don’t know how to do it, then follow our guide.

3) Ensure that your device has a minimum of 80% battery backup left in it since the ROM installation process is a battery consuming one. If you have less battery backup and if your device gets switched off during the installation process, then it might result in a bricked device. So avoid it by charging your device fully before starting the procedure.

4) Download Karbonn USB Drivers for your smartphone and install it on the computer. Without USB drivers, you can’t connect your smartphone to the computer.

5) Make sure that you have enable USB debugging mode in your device. If you are not sure how to do that, follow this guide.
