To root kitkat firmware you need used so flash tool cannot use this. This is for only android 4.2 or lower. Root with framaroot then install twrp then install supersu update

Your welcome, thank you for visit.

Sorry wrong not twrp, carliv touch and not so flash tool but sp flash tool. Install this using sp flash tool and then update supersu via carliv custom recovery, cannot use mobile uncle. But you need scatter file to run sp flash tool.

How to use sp flash tool is basically same for every device, what make the different is the scatter file and the image file. You can search in my blog how to use sp flash tool but make sure the scatter file and image file are for lenovo s939.

Andy,
Thanks for the input.

It seems I have to accept the fact that, the lost contacts cannot be recovered.
Those lost contacts, I don't have duplicate copy in SIM.

I'm pretty new in using smart phone, have been using the old keypad phone for long time, and just recently switched.

Please kindly share me a link that I can learn to sync contact with google.

Thank you.
regards,
EK

I do a factory reset and stuck in boot looping also. Just now I try to enable USB and Storage DA DL to flash. I got an error at the 100% saying 'BROM ERROR : S_CHKSUM_ERROR (1041)" and if i disable the DA DL then it is not there. Do you think it is because of that?
