  3. 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!

  4. 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 a program is still using it. Close any program that might be using the device, ang then try again later"

    Now my phone still connected with my laptop… Pls help me bro

    1. 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


  5. 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!

    1. 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

  7. Hi, sorry for asking a lot of questions. I have problem with my BBM (Blackberry Messenger), I downloaded and installed it successfully from Play Store, but I can not open it as it always said "unfortunately, BBM has stopped working". I tried to re-install BBM, restart, upgrade to S124 rom, back to this ROM, and still nothing happened. Please help. Thank you.

    1. Hi eric, sorry about that but i cannot help about this, because it like problem with the firmware. If the problem on firmware you must ask with the dev, i just know about the installatiin progress and the way how to install. Sorry

  8. Hello everyone,

    My girlfriend has a Lenovo A 850 cell phone.

    By mistake she pressed 2 buttons at the same time (she thinks it was the power button + volume button)

    Now all the text is in Chinese – written on a black background with a blue top part of the screen.

    How can she make a "hard" reset of the phone?

    We cannot really find anything in the Internet about that subject, only one website that mentioned, that we have to

    – Turn off phone
    – Press "power-button" and "volume-up"

    at the same time.

    But still everything is in Chinese

    Thx in advance for your comments

    1. the process need phone in the off condition, so if your phone boot up when connecting the usb cable then the process will not start, so from the point it like the SP FLASH TOOL not recognize yoru device right? then your USB VCOM driver not installed correctly, dont open flash tool connect your device without battery and see on your device manager. are the USB VCOM appear or not ?

    1. I cant help …
      Coba kamu gunakan ip addres manual (ip adres statis_
      caranya :
      kamu centang perlihatkan sandi dan pengaturan lanjutan
      setelah kamu isi sandi wifi, jangan OK dulu, kamu geser kebawah
      , pada IPv4 kamu pilih STATIK,, dan ip adress kamu isi seperti ini ( angka 123 bisa kamu isi suka hati (misal 111, 162 dll) asal jangan lewat 225) trus coba kamu konek…
