    1. OK… but on recovery mode, there is only option to install update… no install zip file…
      i have 3 zip file in S820,,, (achinese character).zip

      also my build number is slightly diff VIBEUI_V1.5_1421_DEV_S820

    2. Ok… i should follow instruction on this article *CWM Custom Recovery for Lenovo S820* am i right? is yes, then the 1st instruction to CWM custom recovery is confusing –> Your Lenovo S820 must has been Rooted…

    3. @liza tell me about your device, see at system setting than go to about. Yes need root to install custom recovery, if your firmware is android 4.2.2 that use framaroot, but if your firmware is android 4.4.2 or vibe ui v1.5 than use

    1. Cwm can installed if device already rooted, if device not rooted than to install cwm can be done with sp flash tool. Kinguser can install only for android 4.2 cannot be use to android 4.4 to root vibe ui which is using android 4.4 than you must install cwm first via sp flash tool than root device using zip method
