  1. Hi,
    I can see the recovery mode, but the screen doesnt work out. So I want to go back to stock recovery mode. How? I already reboot it, and it stuck at custom recovery. I forgot to backup. Does it mean my phone is bricked? 🙁

    1. Hi,
      Where did you found custom recovery link? In my blog i remove the link because the screen cannot be touch and still not update it. You can to back to stock recovery by installing or flashing rom. Brick if you phone cannot go to home screen stuck on the lenovo logo
