    1. Hi,
      Are you asking or give information? If you asking, just try it first. It won't hurt your device. If you give information, i will thank you for trying and confirm this method. I try this on Lenovo S820 Vibe UI 2.0 1439 Version

    1. Yes i think supersu cannot be installed on Android KitKat. That why a lot android KitKat root using king user. If you got Vibe UI 2.0 from Lenovo update than it will not include google applications so you need to modified by your self. You must install custom recovery than install google applications from it

    1. this guide not use super user, as you see it use king user super user or super su cannot running on Android 4.4.2. so for Android kitkat 4.4.2 we use king root.
      for china firmware i just have this guide, don't have anymore guide to root. so sorry cannot help you more

    1. hi,
      a lot :
      1. you can modified system files, remove unwanted china applications from system folder
      2. running root applications
      3. backup your ROM using MTK droid Tool
      4. installing custom Recovery for backup / restore via recovery
      5. etc

    1. hi,
      i have guide for Lenovo S660, you can refer to this guide for ROW version http://bit.ly/1Hnkvtg this is the latest ROW version for Lenovo S660, but be careful S660 china sometime got LK image incorrect when installed with ROW version. If this happen just flash back to china ROM then flash again to ROW but press firmware upgrade button. Don't forget to Full backup ROM and IMEI

    1. hi,
      this guide not work on every Vibe UI 2.0 it depend on the release version, Yes Vibe UI 2.0 is china version and china version firmware if prohibited use google applications, so the solution is install international version or root and install google applications by your own.

    3. Hi,
      Sorry for late answer, i don't have guide for Lenovo K920 but usually lenovo have 2 kind firmware china and international version so if you want google applications try to install international version. And for rooting usually it install from custom recovery so install custom recovery then root your phone

  5. Hai..i had trouble rooting my lenovo a319 androi kit kat 4.4.2..after tried your methods it still meet the failure and i tried other root mechanism but still fail..could you light some shed to my problems?

    1. Hi,
      For rooting lenovo device it usually install custom recovery first than install root from custom recovery, but if you like the one push rooting method you can try towel root, vroot or kingroot. But so sorry i don't have any guide for Lenovo A319

    1. So china root application have sub menu to u root, so if you use king root, vroot or towel root there is sub menu to unroot. if you use supersu too i think it have sube menu to unroot so try search at rootapplication sub menu

  6. Hi Andy,
    I bought Lenovo A936 in March and I was told that there will be an international update which will remove all China defaults and I am unable to use it now that Im in India. Is there a way I can upgrade to international OS?

    1. Every lenovo device had 2 tyoe firmware, china and international firmware. International firmware is has google play default and not have many unwanted china apps, you can flash it without waiting for an update using flash tool, but sorry for lenovo A936 i dont have guide about it

  7. Dear Mr. Andy
    Would I ask why I can't doing update to VIBEUI_V2.0_lenovohome.net.s960 (ROM) after successfully rooted
    If I Updated to android kitkat as you mentioned in your video is that helpful to make update automatically
    also, I cant' doing OTA update
    in addition, SD card does not appear in TWRP recovery , so I can't make flash for any ROM
    Hope that I asked in correct way because I am beginner in this field
    Kind regards

    1. OTA update cannot be done if your device rooted, or will failed. From your software version mention above it look like china firmware that already modified so i dont know about OTA update. But if you succesful update it will remove google apps and only have english and china language

  8. Hello everyone and thanks for letting SHARE MY PROBLEM WITH MY SMARTPHONE went crazy started down APPLICATIONS ICONS GRAMBLIS SEEMED LIKE THINGS started putting Christmas decorations tags etc, until he recorded a message in English saying that was not allowed APPLICATIONS ADULTS, then try to restart the phone, but encrypted, ME SAYS ON TIGHTENING THE KEY WITH KEY VOLUME +, AND YOU ENTER THE SYSTEM REMAINS THE SAME BUT THEN I gave the minus – and got WITH SYSTEM blew it, now only turns on and off turns on and off, SHOWN BY LENOVO PAWERED Android, and stays in a loop, I tried to get down the Lenovo_A816_S017_150527_ ROM software (by_xdafirmware.com) .zip but NOT comes Mt. 6585 which is what would make it work, I dropped FlashTool tHE DRIVER AND SOFTWARE BUT NEED tO RETURN TO wORK.

    1. hi,
      i don't get your story well but i catch that your problem is you got boot loop on Lenovo logo, cannot boot to home screen.
      solution for this problem usually do factory reset from recovery mode, go to recovery mode then select factory reset.
      if the factory reset could not fix the problem then you need to reflashing the firmware using flash tool.
      what phone model ?
