How To: Root YU Yureka

Root YU Yureka

If you are among those lucky ones who got a chance to pickup the Yu Yureka from Amazon and looking for a detailed guide on how to root your yureka, then I doubt that there is any better place than this. You might have visited some XDA threads for the same but those are generally brief explanations and you might miss something or the other. Moreover, in most of them, ported Clockworkmod recovery has been used which is less stable and lacks features. So keeping your worries aside, look nowhere if you want to root your device correctly.

Note – We are not going to give you those dire warnings which you generally see before any rooting procedure. Surprisingly, Yu has announced that unlocking bootloader and rooting your Yureka will not void your device's warranty.
