Hi there,

I've been through your guide with no success!
I own a Lenovo S920, which was pre-rooted with cwm pre-installed
when it was delivered to me.

I followed your first steps installing busybox and usb vcom driver with success.
Now when I try to run the mtk droid tools, nothing happens.

The adb shell command outputs error: device not found.

Also there is another wierd behaviour in the cwm recovery. When I try to backup it outputs error: cannot mount /data

Any idea what maybe wrong about it?

Hi
Are you already enable usb debugging? Most of the problem device not found because usb debugging was not enable, go to system setting->developer mode -> usb debugging please enable it and look if mtk droid tool can found your device

USB debugging is enabled..
I just figured it out. I was missing the Lenovo USB Driver.
I download it from a russian forum, I installed it along with the Vcom driver
and everything worked out just fine!
Maybe you should add a small not for Lenovo smartphones regarding
the lenovo usb driver.

Nice guide. Thank you very much…

PS: I think that you should write another one on how to restore an mtk device
after the backup!

Hi,
Try following this guide but this will install ROW firmware instead of CN firmware, http://bit.ly/1tZrPcm, make full backup for your current ROM first before following th guide. For CN jelly bean i am not have yet, but i will update my blog for CN firmware

If you not install usb vcom driver than flash tool and mtk droid tool will not detect your device, are already enable usb debugging? It need battery remove when you wanna install usb vcom driver, are it already remove?

Then sorry maybe you got mulfunction usb devices or usb cable, or maybe your windows need to re install. Because it impossible your pc cannot detect your phone after it xonnected. Pleade check your pc or cable first.

Android 4.4.2 cannot be root using framaroot, vroot, or etc when root it you need to change lenovo standard recovery with custom recovery then install root from there. Yes update vibe ui 2.0 remove all google applications and change your multilanguage rom with cn firnware. Just make backup current rom and IMEI first then change your rom to row / international version

Hi,
Stuck or not? If not just wait for 30 minutes before cancel the process sometime it take 45 minutes to finish the backup. If stuck than check error message on left side MTK droid tool

adb is some program that can communication between device and computer, for installing ADB on your computer please refer to this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979, then try again.

I am suspect with windows vista, because i never use it. I am using windows 7 and windows xp and never have problem installing adb server. Maybe tried this on the windows search box type cmd, if you found the result right click on it and run as administrator. Your using administrator user with right click run as administrator is a different think. On cmd type adb kill server, then type adb devices while connect your device

As far as i know when your email match with email on the google play then google play with recognize your device. Try search busybox from play store on your device, if not maybe you need wait for sometime for google play to recognize your device

Happy New Year Andy,
I'm having trouble while my device (Lenovo S850) connected to usb, MTKdroidTools couldn't detect my device. I've also installed the VCOM driver, it appears 'MediaTek Preloader USB VCOM Port' instead of that shown in your picture above, it only appears for a second and gone. I did turn off my device before doing this. I notice it began to charging mode once I connect the device to usb. I tried this on two computers with the same problems. Is it because the existing of the battery? But my battery built in.
Any solution bro?
Thanks!

Hi,
Devices not recognize by mtkdroidtool usually because you not enable usb debugging, so make sure that usb debugging already enable and cable connection is a good condition.
