Actually its always risky but then my personal experience is good. So far i have rooted two micromax canvas phones and htc 816. Typically its an hour's job once you have all the required stuff ready with you. Make sure you backup your data as it would do hard reset after custom recovery. If your phone is out of warranty, then you can take the risk.
You can refer to xda developer thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2775801
or a detailed video tutorial
All the best!

I need to root my phone but am a bit nervous about bricking it. Can you post me some links to the software or tutorials you used?
How easy was it?
Vinusha, 11 Aug 2015Can we still get the updates even if the phone is rooted?
Basically when you root the device, you replace the stock_recovery with custom made CWM or TWRP recovery. When you want OTA updates, you will have to again install stock recovery and then update it and then again install custom recovery.
So in short, yes you can update but then you will have to play again with the recovery a bit for this.

Now after unblocking and rooting,i got 2Gb of phone memory which got reduced bu 0.5Gb after few app installations. But now the beauty is that i can get rid of stock apps as well, like kids mode, 7digit, etc.

Please,reply me.What should I do?
shoeb, 03 Aug 2015is it true?yeah, unfortunately its true. And the reason is that its installing just too many stock apps which you can't remove and will keep eating memory/cpu and your time! :)
But then not updating would also be stupid as you would miss lot of good features!
