BTW that AIO tool is nothing but a batch file.
yes it is a batch file i agree,
but what would you do when you need to update the binaries of the recovery? i.e. a new version comes out with a different filename?
should we wait for someone to spoonfeed the batch to us when all the procedure takes is less than 5 minutes?

Just replace the old file in the folder after renaming the new file (to the old file name) and you can use the same tool with new file and it takes lesser than 5 minutes :D.

I dunno man, I wouldn't recommend a noobie to use a script, its like disaster waiting to happen.
if he knows what he's actually doing, he wouldn't make mistakes .
and how will the noob who doesn't know the technicalities know which file to rename?

No no! I don't use unverified tools.
I'll make it simple for you

1)Follow the steps in this thread to install proper drivers so your yureka is recognized by your PC at fastboot mode
http://forums.yuplaygod.com/threads/fix-yureka-fastboot-detection-issues-win8-8-1.2106/
2)Now Unlock bootloader follow instructions in this thread
http://forums.yuplaygod.com/threads/how-to-unlock-bootloader-on-the-yu-yureka.1542/
3)Now flash a custom recovery, I recommend Philz Recovery
http://forums.yuplaygod.com/threads/recovery-philztouch-6-59-based-on-cwm-v6-0-5-1-for-yureka.1537/
do everything via adb and type the commands , don't use flashify
4)Check if recovery installed properly by entering recovery
turn off phone
press volume up+down+power wait for vibrate, release
5)turn on phone, download Superuser binary zip sd card
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053
Turn off phone, boot to recovery
install the zip file by Philz Recovery or CWM recovery.

DONE!
Wont unlocking bootloader delete all user data? atleast thats what happened when I unlocked my nexus 5 bootloader.

Seems like 'fastboot oem unlock' performs a standard factory reset, which typically wipes the /data partition but not anything considered to be "external storage" (such as an /sdcard mount point, where pictures/music/video typically live). So I guess all the installed and such will get deleted.

Just for the information - I bought the Xolo Omega 5.5 from ebay for around 8.2k(was available for 7.8k with valentine coupon, but couldn't buy due to paytm gateway problem). Right now if you go with Desidime coupon, one can get it for 7.8 k as well.

I'm still awaiting the phone delivery, and not much review available online. But its smaller cousin Omega 5.0 has very good reviews on Igyan/gogi sites.

It has 1GB ram, with octa core CPU. So should be good enough for even heavy games(which is not a requirement btw for me).

For me the selling point was its camera which is supposed to have the same 13MP Sony exmor RS sensor, which is present in the Xiomi Mi4(20k phone). Other things such as 5.5inch 720p screen and 2 sim slots, removable 2600mah battery etc are present, So if this phone doesn't give any problem, then I guess its a pretty good deal. They are saying that they have some issues with camera synchronization with flash, which will be corrected in next update due by this month end(they have already rolled out the update for smaller cousin). So lets hope it turns out good.
