  2. Help! I tried to install the recovery.
    I put the files in /root but MobileUncle tools did not find them.
    But they suggested files from remote and I downloaded a file named P780_CWM_0624.
    I installed it and now the phone is in permanent boot loop.
    How can I recover the phone?

    Please help!

  3. It not fake like a clone
    AP set Product Authorised which actually is a phone of this type sold by the distributor is not official or not recognized by the manufacturer of a brand. The quality is almost the same as set ORI. Only difference is in the form of warranty where the warranty AP set is of importers and ORI is from the brand itself.)

    1. Hi,
      Yes and i think it cannot use this guide, but if you sure you can try it but i cannot guarantee about working or not because this recovery use Lenovo P780 specification and if you sure you device have same specs you can try it

    1. Then verify that it really root. Try to browse system folder and see at /xbin/ try search for su file if you cannot then your device not rooted. If can and you see su binary then just install supersu from google play store
