Good day, people today I’m writing about how to install Android 7.1 Nougat on your Micromax Canvas Nitro and Coolpad F1. This tutorial is for both the a311 and a310  models or version phones.I will show you how to install perfectly stable ROM on your canvas nitro or Coolpad F1.

Name of the custom ROM you are going to install or flash is Resurrection Remix OS. It really is an awesome ROM bugless, super stable, smooth and responsive. But the feature I like the most about it is its customizability. It is customizable as hell. You will love it when you finally flash it on your device.

I myself own a canvas nitro a311, it is quite old almost 3 years old. I purchased it back when it was initially released. I own a 16 GB variant. Before installing Android 7.1 Nougat on my Micromax Canvas nitro a311 I was on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

The reason I didn’t upgrade my Micromax Canvas Nitro a311 to Android Nougat 7.1 earlier is bugs. But then Resurrection Remix OS with android Nogaut released, bugless. So, let’s start.


Compress files online before downloading interested!

  1. Download Resurrection Remix OS
  2. Download Sound Patch
  3. Only download this Patch if you own an a311/coolpad F1

First of all, download the required files from the links provided above. You may or may not wanna flash sound patch, it is totally optional. And download the patch if you don’t own a canvas a311 model.

After that I recommend you to go ahead and flash TWRP 3.0.2-0 for bugless and flawless experience as the author says. It is a fairly straightforward process it will take you under 5 minutes to perform.

1. Boot into Recovery

It will take quite a while for the installation to finish. I don’t know why but it took me more than 20 minutes to finish the flash process.

So please be patient.

5. Flash sound Patch

After the flash process is completed reboot the system if you are a Micromax Canvas Nitro a311 user. Also, you may flash the sound mod zip too if you want. All it does is install the Dolby sound app which is useful to make the sound quality better. Don’t forget to disable AudioFx before using the Dolby app.

Now all is done. Resurrection Remix OS or ROM with Android 7.1 Nougat al installed on your device go ahead and explore the brand new ROM. You will love it.

To do so go back to the main menu after you finish flashing sound Patch. Again click on ‘install’ option select the storage where patch Zip is located and click on it after that Swipe to confirm flash. It should be pretty quick. After flashing is completed, reboot your device. If everything went fine then you should be booted into brand new ROM in a couple of minutes.
