  1. Hi Andy! Thanks for the this guide. I have successfully rooted my S90-A by following all the guides (for the step #2, volume up + power didn't boot to custom recovery – I used volume +/- and power key then release power once booted to lenovo screen).

    Do you have a guide on how to flash custom rom and where can I get the roms? I'm a newbie on rooting but I can follow instructions like what I did on rooting. Also if I will flash custom rom, will it make my phone sim unlocked (currently my phone is locked on certain network and I want to use other network).

    Thanks in advance and thanks again for this useful guides.

    1. Hi,
      Thank you for your revision, i will update the guide soon as possible.
      For custom ROM sorry i dont have in this blog i am only show how to update Lenovo with it official ROM china or international so for custom ROM i dont have.
      For unlock the sim, have you tried to install or re flash another ROM? International ROM maybe?

    2. No I haven't tried it yet. I don't know where to get custom rom (well i believe i have the international version since my phone model is S90-A) and I'm not familiar with flashing yet. I hope you can make a guide for flashing and rom list. Your guide will be my top priority since I didn't encounter any problem following your guide.

      I'm the one who asked also on the region code after manual install of firmware on s90 (####59930# still don't work, but my phone is still running good even if I wasn't able to set the region).

      I really hope you can help on the flaahing guide (w/ links for rom – haha XD ).

      Thanks again mate!
