  1. "When you extract S650_S119_131010, it will contain 2 folders S650_S119_131014 and S650_S119_131014-Lang_Fix, use the Lang_Fix folder for this guide".but i have only this folder "S650_S119_131014-Lang_Fix",did i miss something?i really need to downgrade my phone.after kitkat update i had call drop issue, 2g internet issue.can you help me?

    1. It should contains 2 folder, but it ok if you only got Lang_fix it language fix for original S119.
      So the files is same just Lang_fix is the newer than S119 because it contains system with language already fix by the developer.

    2. then why this error happens Error: Initialize scatter file failed. Please check the scatter file name you load is legal.,i am so disappointed.i am sony xperia s user.it is really simple to flash.there are lot of developer support for it.this phone is my friend's phone.he really need my help,can you suggest me another method or link.?

  2. the thing is you said that "S650_S119_131010 ↦ 448 Mb, This download contains all required files to upgrade Lenovo S650 ( If you questioned username and password when download this files, please use android rookies global username and password at about page )"..but we are getting this file "S650_S119_131014" not "S650_S119_131010".i think thats why problem occurs.

  3. Hello pls help..

    helo sir do you know what is the problem of this..

    when i use sp flashtool for flashing my lenovo s650 it will work/flash the phone when i dont tick/checked the DA DL All with Checksum..ofcourse we know the output which will be stucked on a screen saying.."tool dl image fail uboot is blocking blahblah" proved!

    PreLoader USB VCOM Port-ok
    S650_ROW_S116 ROM-ok
    S650_ROW_S305 ROM-ok
    Scatter files -ok

    the real problem is this:

    but when i tick/checked the DA DL All with Checksum it will flash only red then purple then it will stay 0%.. until it show a message like this..

    BROM ERROR: S_DA_UART_CKSUM_ERROR(3060)

    what would be the problem.. itried switching to other versions of flashtools and different Scatterfiles/ROMs..

  4. I bought this phone for my friend 6 months ago . Yesterday he gave it to with a big problem . The phone can not open , and i even can not open the recovery mode .The battery is ok , i have check it . When i plug it to the charger ,it did not show any battery level . It only light the red notification light . I have install the USB VCOM Driver and the Lenovo Drivers . I use a Windows 10 Pro x64 laptop . I try to flash a lot of Roms via Flash Tool but all end up at the same error [BROM ERROR : S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) Please check your load matches to your target which is to be downloaded.] . I try all the USB Ports of the laptop . I try many different USB cables . I uninstall and reinstall all the drivers several times . I try to flash only Custom Recovery so i will install new Rom via the Recovery . An error at the Flash Tool tells that [ BROM ERROR : S_DL_GET_DRAM_SETTING_FAIL (5054) Please check your load matches to your target which is to be downloaded.] . Can anyone please help me .

    1. First dont flash the ROM using windows 10 it very not recommend, use windows 7 or xp.
      Error 4032 when in flash tool is because you need special preloade, search at google special preloader for Lenovo S650. Try follow the guide above using windows 7 or xp
