Can we update using this method if custom recovery is installed?

Reply to  Naif Dastagir

of course, you can.
this is the default method to use to update Lenovo ROM, instead OTA update. If you have custom recovery than you cannot use OTA update.

THANK you so much Andy for sharing this. IT works like magic. But the Wi-Fi Connectivity issue is not solved in this version. It remains the same as it was in ROW_S058.

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

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?

Reply to  gpgarain

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

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

I tried creating Hotspot without keys in my PC, but it doesn't work. The wifi in S660 is asking for keys even if I created Hotspot without keys.

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

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.

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

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

Yes there is a bug in Row ROM only,when i root my mobile my warrenty will gone and OTA update also not getting, so can you try to give us the update.zip, so we can directly update the ROM with out flashing.

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

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?

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
