How to Root QMobile Noir A10?

Rooting Noir A10 is as easy as a pie. Well thanks to Bin4ry from xda-developers.com who developed a general script to root/unroot majority of android devices running stock ICS or JB. Fortunately, that script works fine with Noir A10 as well.

Before you Start

1) Rooting will void your warranty (unless and until you unroot it and find a way to reset the flash counter).

2) You might brick your device while rooting. So follow the instructions carefully.

3) Make sure everything is in order and that your device is charged.

How to Root

1) On your device, go to Settings > Development and enable USB Debugging.

2) Connect Noir A10 to your PC. Install device drivers using PDANet.
