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!

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

It might be the ROM bug have you tried to factory reset it? If already and still exist then it might be ROM bug

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

Reply to  gank1987

move only data and leave the ROM inside it alone,
i dont know why it create folder 0, if it because the CWM then you should change the cwm to lower version. like twrp v2.6 maybe..
