Congratulations, Now enjoy your Lenovo S660 with the latest firmware version. Please leave any comments if you found any problems or broken links regarding this guide and Thank you for your visit
    1. you could try to find it on the net,
      may website i used for my references, needrom.com, telchina.pl, myphone.gr and etc i am not just serve what it set but i need edit some and then publish it. so try find at many china phone forum out there

    1. So strange error, how about if you try to connect to another acces point that not required password? It can connect or not? Because i never found this problem before.
      Or try to remove password from your acces point, i am afraid you not use wpa or wpe for your password

    2. My Lenovo S660 is getting connected with WPA/WPA2 PSK security while Hotspot created from Samsung Device. But when I create Hotspot from my Windows PC (Win8.1Prox64bit, genuine), its showing "Authentication Problem". I cannot understand the problem. My Samsung Device is working fine with the PC. Can you help me?

    3. I could not say anything because authentication problem can be cause by 2 device your wifi or your device, but to solve this i need to know your security setting on your wifi device about allowed device and many security setting must be check, because as you can said your device can connect with samsung device but not with wifi device, so i can take conclusion that your wifi device security setting need to be checked

    4. Like i ever say before, why not try not using key. Just start hotspot without any keys if seccess then the problem is in the keys, you cannot compare it with your samsung device, if you wanna compare it are you sure the wifi setting between lenovo and samsung is same? Are authentication mode between lenovo and samsung same?
      Just try create hotspot without keys look if your devices can be connect?
      And i bet even you change your ROM with another it will not solve the problem, because i think the problem not on your device

    1. Hi,
      Sorry for the inconvenience, the link is use adfly and maybe that what make you cannot open the link. So sorry i cannot give you the other links because it already convert all with adfly. So just try using another dns like google dns 8.8 8.8

    2. Hi Andy,
      I successfully download all s/ws which you have given, i am trying to install Mediatek PreLoader USB VCOM Port is not successfully installed, for this Flash Tool was not connected to my mobile, so please tell to me what i need to do?, For lenovo OTA S660_ROW_S062_141126 version update failed,so my dailer was not working, i need to solve this issue, please give me the suggisition.

    3. Hi,
      You must be succesful install the USB VCOM first before continued to the next step because flash tool will not rexognize your device if USB VCOM driver not installed, so it must installed first. Try repeat the step to install USB VCOM over and over again until success

    4. First thing to do when there is an application than not working just try to remove data and cache from the system setting -> application -> dialer click remove data and cache, but when it not working try to do factory reset for the last.

    1. Hello,
      I am having the problem with installing this Mediatek PreLoader USB VCOM Port on Device manager. I followed your guide but still it doesnt work. I guess cuz when i turn on usb it appears than, after 5 sec. as you said, (ofc i manage to sellect Update Driver Software) it dissappears and driver cannot be properly instaled. What should i do now?

    2. Hi,
      Yes when you connect the device it will show then it will dissappera, before dissappear right click on it and select update driver. Even it dissappear the driver still installed on your system. After that just try to begin the flashing process

  1. Hi Andy,

    I have the problem with wifi, my wifi is not working properly, when i connect the wifi it says obtaining the ip address, but not connected, so i google it and found one solution as adding static ip address, now wifi connects, some time net will comming properlly after that wifi symbol is disappear, after restarting the mobile only it will connectes again and getting net, plesae give any solution for this wifi issue.

    1. Hi Andy,

      I have the previous version only, that time my wifi was not working means wifi trying to keep on obtaining address but not not connecting, so i google it and found one solution as adding the static ip address then the prob will solve so i did like that, then wifi is connected with static ip address and net also comming but Lenovo given the ota update recently, i tried to update,but it fails, and i found your blog and try to update but failed to me,

      Now the wifi problem is wifi is connected with static ip address after some time internet will not comming and signal also gone, if signal have then net not comming, i tried wifi fixer app also, but not getting the intenet, after restaring only again wifi is connected and same as usaval,

      Please give any solution for the wifi issue.

    2. i think what must you do is re flashing your device, with new ROM or maybe the latest. because new ROM will not have wifi problem or anything.
      and i think it now hardware issue also because your wifi can turn on and can search for ip so i think it ROM problem with the file wifi permission, so i think re flashing will solve the problem. just my suggestion

    3. ic so you mean it bug in this ROW ROM ?
      because i read in S058 they also had this problem?
      apparently the S062 cannot be update from OTA, some people say they manage to update it but in the middle update progress the got an error. and after that i think the wifi got problem.
      i have one solution but it need you to root your device and install root explorer, fix the permission of the dhcp file.
      open root explorer and then go to /system/etc/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-run-hooks, edit the permission to 777 or any that other user can execute it

    4. when you root your phone only warranty will gone ota update will still received, then sorry i cannot help you then it need to be root.
      by the way if it still on warranty why not return it to your sales ? problem fix with the new device.

  2. Hi Andy,
    I have tried once again for firmware upgrade using this process, when trying to update Mediatek PreLoader USB VCOM Port, system says, up to date the version, so i proceid to start the process, doing all process what you said, i cannot find the flash tool was recognized, when i clicked the download button from flash tool, i was waited lot of time, but still not finding the GREEN CIRCLE, can you please guide me

    1. It look like the driver not installed properly, when flash tool recognize your device it will automatically begin to start flashing your device with progress bar on the bottom of flash tool. but if the flash tool cannot recognize your device then nothing happen on the flash tool, and the progress bar will not show. that you need to reinstall your VCOM USB drvier

    2. i think need wait long, because the high end device still not received lollipop, but i don't know if freelance developer already release it, and make lollipop custom ROM for Lenovo S660. so just keep waiting and enjoy the current ROM.

    1. Until now i still don't hear any bug on S058 from any other use. But you must be experience your self to know it good rom or not. Every people have different opinion about the rom, in one side i say it good rom but another maybe said it bad rom because lag or something

  3. Hi bro.
    I have a lenovo s660 with build number : S660_ROW_S035_140415
    It has Android Jellybean 4.2 installed and rooted.
    I tried to update it to android kitkat 4.4.2 via ota but it failed (maybe because I have a rooted device?)
    Will your above method of flashing will work on my device or not?

    1. Hi,
      Above guide is not using OTA, it using flash tool, more risk on do this guide. If you wanna use OTA tried to use custom recovery for update, cwm or TWRP S058 cannot installedusing standard recovery so please install custom recovery first

  4. Hello andy! I sucessfully updated my lenovo s660 to latest kitkat.
    But I was not at all happy with the kitkat. I don't know but after updating it to kitkat, my lenovo s660 become slow. Scrolling lag in lots of apps. And there is also sd card restriction and lot more…

    Well, fortunately I did a backup of jellybean earlier using MTKDroid tools. I restored back and my lenovo s660 is fast compared to when kitkat was installed.

    Here are my question to you :

    1) Do you know how can I install a custom recovery like twrp or cwm in my lenovo s660 (now running jellybean build version S660_ROW_S035_140415) ?

    2) I rooted my lenovo s660 with vroot. But the superuser application is in chinese. Do you know how can I get rid of it and use other su app like supersu?

  5. Hi Andy, are those steps work for lenovo s660 only? Because I use lenovo s650 and I got some problems with the system upgrade. i couldnt update it to the latest version. Whenever I tried to download the system update, it worked and the download was finished even though it took so long but when I tried to update it, it didnt work. It said something like 'package installation is insuccessful'. Then I tried to do factory reset but it still got the same problem. I'd been trying since last year. Would you mind to help me?

    1. Hi,
      The step can be use for another lenovo phone but the file can only for Lenovo S660, and flash tool also just for lenovo s660 but sometime you can use it for Lenovo S650. After finish flashing it will take longer on the first boot and for ota update it will need official recovery

    1. You are scaring me…
      "update_TWRP_S660_S058_KK ↦ this is installation package for Lenovo S660 with build number S058, never try for S062 but if you try it please give update on the comments"

      Is this a comment you forgot? is it tested? I cannot afford bricking the phone. I need it.

    2. I decided to give the twrp 2.8 version a try but I did not find a scatter file inside, so I followed this (http://www.androidrookies.com/2014/10/install-twrp-2711-on-lenovo-s660.html#.VegwH_lsHxU) to install older version of twrp.
      After a couple of tries I managed to boot in recovery mode (twrp)

      Exiting twrp the first time I got a message that the phone was not rooted and twrp offered to install superSU. I chose yes. After booting there was a notification from the superSU app that said that superSU was not fully installed and I should choose one of two ways "Google Play" or "twrp" to install it. Play was not working 🙁 Choosing twrp, it automatically downloaded the superSU app, it rebooted to twrp, it installed it and rebooted again. Everything worked like a charm!

      Andy thanks for your help
