  1. Hi Andy, me again.
    Phone works fine but I have some problems with GPS which is very unstable and inaccurate. I find some solution on internet but first i have to ROT my phone. I didnt put eny custom recovery before on phone, what I should I do?

    1. Hi,
      Mtk devices is have weekness on gps functional, it kind hard to lock location sometime we need to tweak it. If you ask to root s650 than you just need to follow above guide, just tell me if you have problem about above guide

  2. hi andy, me again.just now i successful rooted my s660 4.4.2. i am using the update supersu v2.01. after i rebooted, i dont have to update the supersu, its already being update, there is nothing shows up telling to update it. and now i want to update the supersu to newer version manually maybe from play store, will the supersu still work ?

  3. 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?

    1. 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

  4. Thanks a lot for the recovery, worked smoothly for me!!
    If you have already developed a CWM based recovery, could you please share? I have been using CWM and am kinda comfortable with it! Thanks in advance!!

    1. hi,
      modification not make your device cannot received update, you still can received updated and download it but you cannot install it. because to install update OTA you need to use Lenovo Standard Recovery. In this guide lenovo standard recovery are replace with TWRP which is custom recovery.

    1. 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

    2. it did not work i install root checker and check if my phone is rooted but is said phone is not rooted the kingroot app install a kinguser application i cant delete kinguser app please help im scared that i cant delete it i think i brick my phone D:

    3. lols bro it work im rooted wohooooo !! yes i just update the kinguser app and a popup message said root acces and i install again the root checker and i click verify and its said that my phone is root bro thank you for helping me root my phone thank thank you bro :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    4. 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.

    5. your welcome and nice it can help you.
      for samsung galaxy note 3 better not rooted because samsung using knox and if it rooted knox will mark as 1 and never be restore to 0. as 1 is already root and the warranty is void.
      but if you wanna atry just look custom recovery or cmw or twrp for samsung galaxy note 3, install it and install root from it

    1. 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
