    Please help because I have done what I could.is there a chance? please help .thank you.Marius

  3. I bought new lenovo k3 note of k50-t5, After few days i have not seen any updates by OTA and could see other laguages. So i thought to install Indian Version and rooted the phone and installed Custom ROM, System performance went low and my phone is not in good conditions like lot of ads and sexy posters popping up frequently. Again i looked your forum and installed Stock ROM firmware version which is provided using your tools and instaled the same. My phone is working fine, But I am getting error like Loophole Detected install Fix many times and in shutter i am seeing lots of sexy photos and ads after installing this firmware. Please update how to fix this ,
    Note : I have selected recovery option in Flash tool during my flash.

    Thanks you !!! Awaiting for your reply.

  4. I also got a Lenovo K3 some days ago. I tried to flash it, but made a mistake when flashing a revovery as described here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4PQqRXSUa4

    Rooting with KingRoot worked perfect.But:
    I had chosen boot instead of recovery rom when flashing the revocery rom!
    Now it does not boot any more, it is in an endless cycle of booting.

    I am able to start Lenovo recovery and I would be able to install any files via a zip file named Update… but then the message comes up.. that I should use Android OTA for installation.

    Please give me a hint. I would like to get it running again.

    Thanks in advance.

  5. Hey….I have recently bought this lenovo vibe p1…and I’m trying to root that device…it runs on an android 5.1.1 and kingo….kingroot aren’t working…please help me out..

  6. Hi,
    After 2 days of flashing the phone with your method, it went in a boot loop. After trying to re flash it sometimes started and sometimes not, it got stuck in the booting animation of the developer. After a while i showed me the logo and down a message a “tool DL image fail”.
    I tried through flashtool but no luck also. It was getting stuck at 15% all the time, so i tried part by part (first the pre-loader, after the recovery etc).
    I observed i had it stuck when trying to install : 1) system 2) tee2 and 3)userdata and usually i hade the error: brom error : S_DA_UART_GET_CHECKSUM_MSB_TIMOUT (3064) . I tried several roms but the same problem. I also tried another recovery (cuoco) but with no luck.
    Can you please help?

  7. Dear Tom,

    I have updated to Vibe UI 2.8 which said “Stable version” and then I am in big trouble now.

    I think my android version is 5.0. But now it said 5.1 after I have updated to Vibe 2.8. I tried to follow up your video. But it stopped at “Fast boot”. My phone not available in my computer. Hence I was not able to install recovery.img into my lenovo k50-t5.

    Please kindly give me suggestion if you know.

    With very much thanks.

  8. Hi RootJunky, I am trying to install CyanogenMod 12.1 on my Lenovo K3 Note as per your video, however the install fails with an error message to the effect ‘This package is for device: aio_otfp,k50-t5; this device is K50’
    E:Error executing updater binary in zip ‘/sdcard/Download/cm12.1-k3note.zip’.
    I have checked and my phone details are Lenovo K50-t5, have you see this before?

  9. Hi RootJunky, I made a type in the earlier mail…. this is the corrected one… it failed on fastboot devices on step 3. what did I do wrong ?

    1. adb devices — OK , device found
    2. adb reboot bootloader — OK , K3 goes into fastboot mode (small print at bottom)
    3. fastboot devices — failed

    nothing happens at step 3 and device was not found ….
    I had earlier installed the Lenovo drivers from your site to

    Please advice

  10. Greetings All!

    Just before Christmas I bought a Lenovo K3 NOTE off Aliexpress.com, a very good
    price. Through trial and error and a couple of websites later, I came to XDA and
    finally got root and flashed several different ROM’s sucessfully (I think?).
    Here is what I have so far:
    Kenovo K50-T5
    Android 5.1.1
    Baseband K50T5.MR1.LWG.V4,2015/07/22 21:01
    Phoenix ROM
    modem_VIBEUI_V3.0_1544_7.303.1_DEV
    I am missing something? Everything works except connecting to my carrier and adding or editing an APN?
    “Access Point Name settings not available for this user”
    Is there something I can do to get this phone to work here in the US (Straight Talk)? I live in Texas if that makes any difference.

  15. Hi, RootJunky, I have Lenovo K50-T5, android ver. 5.0, VIBEUI_V2.5_1512_5.495.1_ST_K50-T5 (everything stil original). I am a very beginner (my first android phone). I bought it from gearbest and when I turn it off for the very fist time, I could not use it after turn it on again. I got a message: Unfortunatelly a user interface program has stopped (OK and Solve it). Whatever I choosed, the phone did not work. The message reapeard for as many times as I typed something. I had to do hard reset. After that I connected it to the computer, but I received the lousy messega again and had to do hard reset again. After that I had not connected it to the computer any more and also had not turned it off and it works. Just there are some Chineese words under the unknown phone number calls, it does not recognise the phone numbers from my contacts, which have international codes in the beginning,

    As I am the beginner and and not so young any more, I will not use the phone for some special huge apps and games etc. I would like to be fast on Internet, and reliable and user friendly for the use in Europe (Slovenia), without to much changing in the phone and. The originaly it has a Slovenian language (there are many in English – that is not a problem), but there are sometimes also some Chineese menuse. Even by hard reset there are Chineese menus to choose (I found on some youtube what to select if you have Chineese phone).

    What do you suggest me to do? Is it possible to fix the error in my phone? Would root help? Do I need to change the ROM? What would be the easyest way to do it for the beginner and what ROM and other things do I need to change to keep everything in operation in the phone and also to keep the possibility of using my language?

    Thank you for your help in advance!

  16. I recently bought a Lenovo K3 Note and decided to root it. I used your video “How to root the Lenovo K3 note and install custom CWM recovery” Everything seemed to go OK with same output at each step as shown on the video until I tried to boot into CWM recovery. It boots into Lenovo – Recovery which of course has a different menu. I have repeated the process twice with the same result. Can you tell me what has gone wrong?

  19. Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help? I recently rooted my Lenovo K3, I then tried to install a custom ROM via CWM when I try to install the zip I get the message ‘opening package’ and then are taken straight back to the main menu of CWM? I have tried a few different ROM’S and same problem! If anyone could help it would be appreciated. Thank you

  20. For anyone wondering, yes, these instructions work for a 3TS model. I’m currently running the Flyme 5.1 on AT&T in the USA after rooting and installing CWM. Thanks to Rootjunky for his instructions.
