ROOT YOUR PHONE BUT IN A BIT COMPLEX WAY,
 because recently the easier methods like unlockroot software have been reported to fail.
So here you go.

The plan is this, firstly we need to install or rather flash Clockworkmood.
(Many new persons to android may ask whats that???)

I will explain a bit.
If you power ON your mobile while simultaneously pressing the VOL DOWN button, your mobile will be opened in RECOVERY MODE. The inbuilt recovery mode is not of much use for us frankly.

So now we need to replace this recovery mode by CWM Recovery (i.e. clockworkmood recovery).
{please also note that if we have install this we can also then flash custom ROMs, thus its must for us I would say}

So how to do that?????????
HERE COMES THE GUIDE BUT IT WILL NEED YOU TO DOWNLOAD FEW THINGS

but believe me you will enjoy doing it.

so step by step
1) download CWM recovery image from HERE.
(Kindly give credits to: Beerzar from Thailand and Shahabazas from India.

2) download Android SDK from HERE .
(This link will take you to download SDK from the original website. this Size is too big whooping approx 400 MB).

3) Also download a another file cyanogen-files.carneeki.net/flash_image.zip

4) Now where to keep which file
copy the CWM recovery image to your SD card (note: Keep it on root of SD and not inside any folder).
Extract the Android SDK file as per your convenience. best is to place and extract in D or E drive.
We assume you have placed it in D drive. Thus the folder will be like this d:\adt-bundle-windows-x86

Extract the file downloaded in step 3 inside the SDK folder ie. d:\adt-bundle-windows-x86\sdk\platform-tools\

5) Connect you phone to PC in USB debugging mode. ( I assume you have installed the driver)

6) Start command mode in your PC ( to stat DOS mode press start type cmd press enter)

7) Type the following in the  cmd

cd/
d:
cd d:\adt-bundle-windows-x86\sdk\platform-tools

(The aim is to navigate to the folder where we had extracted the file downloaded in step 3)
 

adb push flash_image /sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,exec /dev/block//vold/179:1 /sdcard
cd /sdcard
./flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img




Congrats you have successfully flashed your clockworkmod recovery to Micromax A73

(please reboot your phone and check whether superuser app has been installed or not, in case it has not not been done move to below steps)

NOW WE RETURN BACK TO OUR ORIGINAL AMBITION i.e. TO ROOT OUR A73.
 
Before that you need to understand the advantage of CWM Recovery.

When you will open this recovery mode (POWER ON your mobile while simultaneously pressing the VOL DOWN button)

The Menu will be as such.
- reboot system
- install zip from sdcard
- wipe data/factory reset
- backup and restore
- mounts & storage
- advanced

remember to take a backup of your original ROM
to do it go to backup and restore > backup
(to navigate up & down use left and middle key, and to select press power button on top)

It will be saved on your SD card, remember to take a backup from there to your PC (my suggestion).

Now here is the method to install super user.

STEP 1) go to android market and install super user.

if step 1 fails,
STEP 2) FLASH SUPER USER APP IN ZIP FORMAT
To do so, download the zip file from HERE. place it on SD card.
Boot into Recovery mode and flash by selecting install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sdcard.

select the file downloaded from the above step.
it will warn you,
Confirm install?
THIS CAN NOT BE UNDON.

SELECT YES.

That's it you are done.
Thanks for reading till this part.

Do not forget to say THANKS if this blog has helped in any ways to you.
Also say thanks to the original people who developed the software for us.

BYE...
