How To Install/Flash Carliv Touch Recovery (CWM) in Micromax A117 Canvas Magnus

Micromax A117 Canavs Magnus get's a CWM Recovery, oh sorry, not cwm recovery but Carliv Touch Recovery
Carliv Touch Recovery is popular among MediaTek Android devices because it can be ported to almost any MediaTek device without any decompiling and other things. Credits goes to Carliv for making this simple tool and yuweng for his excellent work on his recovery.  This is latest recovery complied by Carliv and there are all features which a recovery should have liek touch, nandroid, swipe etc. The recovery is touch based recovery so no need for touching your buttons and that's the best part of the recovery. Not only the touch feature, but you get swiping feature, touch-to-flash-rom feature, Nandroid backup, 'Nandroid backup deleter' (in the recovery itself), backup format changer, Aroma File Explorer and other tons of special features in it. Let me show you aggregate features of Carliv Touch Recovery.


  • Can be ported to any MediaTek based android device easily.
  • Touch support- so no need to touch your buttons.
  • Touch buttons (you can use on screen touch buttons like in ICS/JB ROMs too!)
  • Change backup format- you can change the backup format like .ext4, .img etc.
  • Aroma File Manager- use your SD Card, view files on your SD Card, System partition, data and all partitions, also you can delete any of them (thanks to amarullz for his fantastic work)
  • Nandroid backup- backup your current ROM (system, data, boot, recovery and other partitions)
  • Swiping feature- swipe up, down, left or right for moving in recovery.

Please note..

I am not responsible if you bricked your Canvas Magnus while performing the tutorial in this website. I hold no responsibility for it. You may make a backup by MTK Droid and tools for a safety purpose but it is tested by many users so you can also give it a shot. After flashing recovery, whatever you flash, I won't help you in that but make sure to make a Nandroid backup before flashing anything.
