I got the same error as you Gustavo, to solve this problem I used the Chinese flash version SP_Flash_Tool_v5.1348.00. It is located inside the Lenovo_A850+_Mutil_language_70_Flash zip file.

Andy thanks for this awesome tutorial it helped a lot!

Hello, i am on step 13. I cand find the "'install-optional.sh''' in recovery mode. Although i see the folder when i open it there is no''' install-optional.sh ''

Am i doing something wrong?

androidrookies

There is no install option.sh on recovery mode, install from sdcard. Gapps in zip so need to install using cwm recovery mode.

Greetings Sir Suwito,

First of all, thanks a LOT for your post. Few hours ago, my new A850+ got soft-bricked. It lost its default root access for apparently no reason, and stuck itself on boot logo. I was lucky to have got on this page. Seems like the steps above you pointed out are also feasible to unbrick a A850+ successfullyl. Just thought I should leave a note here about it for future reference of the others. Thank you!

Regards,
Hatsune.

I'm using windows 8 for my laptop, I've extract USB Driver for Lenovo Smartphone & getting Lenovo_S890_ALL_Driver. But I'm fail to install it… Is it becoz of the window 8 itself? 2nd try, I skipped the step 1 but I enable the usb debugging on my phone & continue with the step 4, 5, 6,& 7… After I hit the download button, it seems like nothing happen. But after a while when I try to remove / eject my phone then there a pop up "problem ejecting USB composite device. windows can't stop your' lenovo composite ADB interface' device becoz… Read more »

You can continued the step but it won't effect to your device, the windows warning is because the storage still use by windows not mtk port. For installing driver in windows 8 0lease refer to this http://www.androidrookies.com/2014/06/lenovo-s650-flashing-newest-firmware.html

Bro andy, tutorialnya suksess + berhasil… Trima kasih… Saya ada terbaca di forum yg lain. Katanya ROM yg ini bisa swap 3G untuk sim 1 & sim 2. Apa ia mustahil?

http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/rom-a850-a850p-miui-v4-5-t2802835

Apa pendapat anda tentang ROM yg ini

Salam dari Malaysia

hi javis,
i think it possible, but it just swap it means just only one SIM that can used 3G. So it same like any other ROM. unless that this ROM can both use 3G that it must be great. excellence this ROM is you can modified your ROM, from screen server until bootimage. In MIUI there is theme gallery that will make you easy to modified the ROM.beside that this just like another ROM.
thank you for visit and comments

Andy!, great work mate, now i can finally enjoy my new A850+ in spanish :D. I'm having 1 issue though… I'm unable to switch time zone, whenever I try to do it Configuration app stops. Do you had this issue? is there a different way to change zones? Thanks in advance!

androidrookies

thank you,
actually you don't need to configure time zone, just select Automatic date & time in system setting. It will automatic adjust depend on your country, but it will take time to change maybe 1-2 hours. And thank you for visit

Thanks for your quick reply. I did what you've told… more than 5 hours now without change… I'll give it until tomorrow then let you know. I'm in GMT -3 😛

Check GPS setting if turn off please turn it on. i think SIM card also give time zone just wait it will change without you know it. ok i will glad to hear news from you

Gabriel Carabajal

GPS was active, but no luck on that also. Then it came to me "I can't be the only one with this issue", and I really wasn't. There's an app called "TimeZone Changer" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.futurek.android.tzc&hl=es_419) that did the job nice and easy. Once again, thanks a lot for your help and I hope this can help others.
