Please help! I follow your instruction to install CWM on my Lenovo S660 ( build S026) multi languages, but after Mobileuncle tools boot into recovery mode, it says " kernel image incorrect, shutdown in 5 seconds.." then the phone shut down by itself. Please show me how to unbrick my phone. Thanks

Hi,
I don't have guide to install Lenovo s660 with build S026 multi language. Kernel image incorrect is because you have china devices and you installing it with international ROM version. The solution to unbrick is installing the china ROM on your device follow to this guide http://bit.ly/1mEZupr.

Hi,
If your phone is row no way you got kernel image incorrect, it happen on china phone only. Flash this china rom first http://bit.ly/1mEZupr then from that rom flash to row rom but press firmware upgrade not download button

Usb vcom driver contains inf file that must be installed manualy, look at the download section how to install it. I just can say to keep trying installing the usb vcom driver because without that flash tool wil not recognize your device

Try install row rom again. China rom and row rom have the samme way to install. So if you success install china rom than i think with row rom no problem

On lenovo you dont need to unlock bootloader so if you need to install CWM or any other custom recovery just use flash tool.
