  1. I have S860 with 1GB RAM, I had Android 4.2 and then upgraded to 4.4.2. Now I have Chinese apps and Gapps do not work. Build number VIBEUI_V2.0_1439_7.2.1_ST_S860. What is/are the ROM/s that will work for me? Is there any ROM for the phone 1GB RAM that doesn't have the Chinese apps?
    Do I need to start with root (I saw here the article for all Lenovo versions), then recovery, then installing ROM?
    I've been reading about this in the past days but feel a bit lost in all these infos.
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi,
      That mean your device is china and update with china firmware, solutn for google play is installing international firmware bit.ly/1s8TIN. But for information it formware for 2gb s860 so you will need change modem after that

  2. after flash.there is folder 0 created when i flash.n cantain all my data video music all.the data is unaccessible by media like music player etc.when i move the data to whole folder the data unreadable by twrp.so i must still leave it like that if i want to flash.any idea to solve it.or that prob is cauae the cwm.thanks

    1. it on the SD Card or on the internal memory ?
      remove the SD Card when flashing and for internal memory i think you should move all your data first on the computer and then restore it again after flashing is done

  3. ok thanks buddys for info ,I can update my china s860 with 1GB ram after upgrade to 4.4.2 kit kat then install as all guides to Lolipop version.work smooth n clean.keep up more info .i stay in malaysia phone bought local.
