  1. i have problem with this method, after i click update recovery. clicked on recovery.img stated there please root your phone. btw i updated my android to kitkat version

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

  2. 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,

    1. Hi,

      I tried for a few days and seek no solution, therefore I would like to ask if anyone have such situation and got a solution.

      Model: Lenovo S939

      It was with android 4.2.2 which is the stock rom until I successfully flash it to android 4.4.2 which is the official VIBEUI_V2.0_1507_7.9.1_ST_S939_WC36 about two months ago.

      I think I accidently deleted some apps in the phone(I was trying to clear personal contents) and now the phone cannot turn on at all. I am able to connect the phone to my PC using USB and have the driver for it. So I can use SP_Flash_Tool_v5.1524.00.000. I have stock roms S939_S129_140217 and S939_S126_140109 in scatter form.

      I flash one of them using the SP tool, but when I finish downloading and reboot, it go back to android vibe UI v2.0, and all sort of system processes stopped continuously, I cannot access the phone at all.
      just like the video below:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sblFRs0ldZc

      Then I reboot and boot into recovery ( CWM 5 for S939, get from Needroom). I have quite some customs roms saved in my Sd cards which I got from needroom.com:

      VIBEUI_V2.0_1501_7.5.1_DEV_S939_WC19.ZIP

      VIBEUI_V2.0_1507_7.9.1_ST_S939_WC36.zip

      Material_ROM_V3.zip

      Loli_Dark_S939_FASTCHIP.zip

      I try to flash every one of them, all of them say successful, but when reboot, I boot back to vibe UI 2.0 and all systems processes stopped continuously. I tried to patiently click “OK” and try to access the system setting to enable to USB debugging, but no success.

      Have encounter such situation before and a solution of it? Appreciate any input.
      additional info: I can't erase emmc in ori meta mode, it shutdown automatically when i click it.

      Regards,

      Lacer

    2. How can new flash have cwm in it?
      tool, but when I finish downloading and reboot, it go back to android vibe UI v2.0, and all sort of system processes stopped continuously, I cannot access the phone at all.
      just like the video below:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sblFRs0ldZc

      Then I reboot and boot into recovery ( CWM 5 for S939, get from Needroom). I have quite some customs roms saved in my Sd cards which I got from needroom.com:

      So i think you not clean in install it. If you want clean install before flash go to recovery format data, system, and cache. It will erase your system, and then install it using flash tool, and make sure flash tool finished install it

    3. 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?
