  1. hi, i already tried mobileuncle and my s660 is rooted but after i success installed recovery.img but still boot into old recovery mode and i never see any language selection show up…btw volume up+down+power is factory mode and volume up+power is recovery mode for me…and when i boot to recovery mode it will show three option which is recovery mode, fastboot mode and normal boot..is this custom recovery?i really wanted to flash back stock recovery bcoz i wanted to upgrade my firmware to ROW_s62…

    1. Hi,
      I am also recieved same comment with mobile uncle recovery update. But i am sure i am alredy upload the right recovery file. Could you please try using flash tool? And if it return the same as you use mobile uncle than maybe i will re upload the recovery file for S058

    2. hi…i now tired sp flash tool but still no work…when i press volume up+power it still bring me to 3 option boot mode..still old recovery mode…i suggest admin to re-upload recovery file for s058 and let me knw after upload…i wan tried it

    3. Hi,
      I have just realized from your first comments that you already successful change your recovery to standard recovery. What is your OLD recovery before you see 3 options when you press pwer button+volume up?
      Twrp or cwm, for Lenovo S660 cwm is not available, and twrp is a touch recovery so you can see the different between twrp and standard recovery. Or can you see the recovery title?

    4. lol…too bad i cannot screenshot here…ok first..im no installed twrp or cwm…and old recovery i meant when i press power+volume up which came up 3 options…to select anything it says "volume up is select and volume down is ok"…when i choose recovery mode it appear an android with red sign and written no command but when i press power button it appear android system recovery <3e> s660_ROW_S058_140919 with many option to choose…if this is stock recovery before i found out fail to update new version i make sure already unrooted my phone…

    5. So you never change your recovery file? Lol and why do you think you have custom recovery? Just tried the OTA update and i think it will work and installed successful.but make sure you have S058 Row version firmware current running on your device.

    6. hi…i tried few times ota update but it still give me failed and i realise at interface it installing update when i press power button there written signature verification failed installation abort…
