selamat pagi 🙂
mohon maaf mas admin, mau memastikan karena saya masih newbie di android. apakah update OS Kitkat untuk Lenovo s920 ini resmi dari Lenovo atau hanya semacam custom rom dengan tampilan Kitkat?
saya baca di grup dan di kaskus tapi masih bingung dengan kepastiannya.
terima kasih atas tanggapannya 🙂

ini asli android 4.4.2 bukan tampilannya saja, tetapi bukan resmi dari lenovo, vibe ui ini jadi kayak official custom release. jadi ya 50% official 50% custom. kayak cm gt sih gan.

Gan, kalo agan cuma mau install gapps aja coba buka market bawaannya lenovo. Trus ketik google service ntar kan muncul aplikasi google banyak la agan pilih yang google framework

Tested & confirmed gan… thanks buat tutorialnya.. untuk VibeROM ini memang harus dari stock ROM CN dulu & TWRP nya juga yg CN baru bisa update/install VibeROM ini… kalo salah 1 nya ada yg gak cocok bakal berakhir dgn boot stuck yg jalan keluarnya harus re-flash dulu ke Stock ROM yg bener… (tested on lenovo s920 4GB)

ROM CN selalu ada 2 pilihan bahasa, bahasa inggris dan bahasa china jadi ya ada kekurangan dan kelebihannya. tinggal kita aja kalo mau ya install kalo gak mau ya pake yang lama aja.

yes your device can be update but need more additional process because your device use ROW ROM, it international ROM with multilanguage. First you need to flash your device using CN ROM, after that just follow above guide. thank you for reading …
