If in your about phone you can see ROW (Rest Of World) than you use international firmware version. With baseband V58, baseband is modem file, it arrange about your signal strength. There is no EU version

Hi,

I installed the TWRP recovery correctly, but when I go into recovery and select the "Update_SuperSu_v2.01" it says Installation aborted. I tried both the zip files given above. What am I doing wrong?

Hi,
Are you sure already complete installed twrp, twrp can using touch function and need swipe to install, this file cannot be install with lenovo standard recovery because it don't have lenovo sign. Just make sure twrp already installed completely

Hi,
There are many applications to use to root Lenovo S660 running jelly bean, why you not try using framaroot or vroot. It more easy to use just one click and you device will be rooted.
And if you ask this work for you, then no. It need install custom recovery each ROM have it own custom recovery and this custom recovery is for kitkat

When you run root checker there will an agreement that you must allow root checker to use the root permission, if you denied it of course root checker said that your phone is not rooted. Yes it will install kinguser apolication on /system/app that without a root you will not be able to delete it. Just press option on kinguser and select unroot.
You will not brick you phone if it just root. Brick phone is you will unable to turn it on.

Reply to  goku

Hi,
Use mobile uncle download from play store or use mtk droid tool but all need root to get work if you don't have root just follow the guide and ignore about back up IMEI cause install custom recovery will not erase IMEI
