    Hi.. Micromax A57 screen blacking out problem solved!!

    I rooted my Micromax A57 using above method, it perfectly worked.

    Just you have to install an extra app- Titanium backup and then start Super SU and give rooting permission to Titanium backup app.

    Then open Titanium backup app and you can uninstall system app….You should first backup an system app before uninstall it…

    But be careful…I just did that and i was completely screwed. My screen got blacked out, the mobile restarted twice and I couldn’t do anything. Only the notification bar was active. Then I pondered for 1 hour and got the app “notification toggle” form google play store. Connected the phone to system and installed the app. You can get access to every app through the notification bar. Just select Titanium Backup app and open it. Then restore all the system apps. The screen automatically comes again.

    So the caution is …..never uninstall system apps.
