  4. Thanks…for replying me.
    I have anther prob,when I connect my phone for downloading the recovery,it said errors and I've try use the upgrade method,and it still said errors after a few second when downloading…how can I manage to download the recovery without any errors?

    1. above recovery is for china version firmware, so if you firmware is china version than i think it will be ok, but if your version is international then it will error.
      installing recovery will always pressing download button, upgrade button cannot be use if you install recoveyr only.
      anyway you not give me error code or what error you have

  5. anyone have tried this rom, MIUI v7 CNROW from Redmi Note 3g. It seem nice and I already downloaded it will flashed it by tonight. Hoping that it works like charm.
    Andy you told me to revert to china firmware; so which one do I install
    this one Lenovo S820 installing Vibe UI 2.0, Step by step Guide 1507 or this one Lenovo S820 Installing Vibe UI 2.0 with Google Applications 1443 or this one Lenovo S820 Flashing Official Stock China ROM S820_S141

    1. i am using LG G3 now. it up to you but usually china firmware is more compatible with modem for Lenovo. and by the way Lenovo is from china so i think it more compatible than ROW modem.
      for china ROM is up to you choose the newest from the Lenovo site if you can.
