  2. Bro i need help …… Can i root my mobile without intalling CWM / TWRP Recovery…and Can i follow the steps directly how to root YU5010.. Pls help me i want to root my Yuphoria

    • Yes you can. In the above tutorial use the command: fastboot -i 0x2A96 boot recovery.img instead of fastboot -i 0x2A96 flash recovery recovery.img. This will just temporarily boot from the recovery.img and after reboot you will be on stock recovery. Before booting make sure to copy the SuperSU zip package to your device.
