As the title says, these are for Lenovo P780 Chinese version with 4Gb ROM, and model 2013 (not the new 2014). I don't have other versions of the phone and so I can't offer solutions for them.
All these are all built by me from source, tested and are working very well.

JELLYBEAN (Android 4.2.1 or 4.2.2) version:
  1. Modified clockworkmod (non-touch). With extra menus and functions. Aroma file manager support.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here.
  2. Carliv Touch Recovery version 2.7 - full touch CWM based Recovery. Many extra functions.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here.

KITKAT (Android 4.4.x) version:
  1. Modified clockworkmod (non-touch). With extra menus and functions. Aroma file manager support.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here.
  2. Carliv Touch Recovery version 3.0 - full touch CWM based Recovery. Many extra functions.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here.
  3. TWRP Recovery version 2.7.1.0 - full touch.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here. <<< If you don't like MTP feature from last TWRP (2.8), this one has the good old USB Mass Storage mode only.
  4. TWRP Recovery version 2.8.4.0 - full touch.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here. <<<Screenshots are from 2.8.3.0 but visual there is no difference (in 2.8.4.0 adb sideload is fixed).
  5. PhilZ Touch Recovery version 6.59.0 - full touch CWM based Recovery. Many extra functions.
    Screenshots here. * Download it here.

In addition I'm offering the stock kitkat recovery (from readback the kitkat firmware), which seems to be a modified version of miui recovery, for those people who need it.
Download it here.

Also there is a zip for install Aroma File Manager. Download AromaFM_installer.zip and flash it as it is in recovery - it will install aroma file manager for my CWM modded and CTR recoveries (both jb and kk).
Aroma installer is attached to this post.


If you want to say "Thanks!" this is how you can do it:

Either way of support you choose is highly appreciated, but it's not expected!

    This come in two variants: the one with "sw" in name is for those people who don't have or don't want to use internal sdcard as main sdcard (/storage/sdcard0) and it has defined as main sdcard the external sdcard.

  3. TWRP Recovery version 2.7.1.0 - full touch. Doesn't work partition sdcard - have to be removed to make it fit in 6Mb partition size.
    In screenshots there is version 2.7.0.0, but they looks the same.

Nice. Thanks for your good work.

Edit:

All of you users who download this custom recovery, if you dont post at least press thanks button Carliv. He or her at least will know that this cool recoveries work on your phones.

I already did that last year here.
Or you can follow this one to port one of my recoveries from this thread to your P780 version.

I need more feedback to remove version (year and board) compatibility. If more users test these in different P780 versions and found they're working I can delete the year (2013) and board (CN/ROW) compatibility, and I will call it universal. But now, even I see many downloads, there isn't much feedback. Also, judging after number of Thanks, I can presume it's not working for most of them, otherwise I can't understand why they can't come back to say thanks for someone's work they're using, except if they are rude; but I think xda users are well educated people and this is not the case.

PS: If it's not working for a specific P780 version, then any of you post here a stock boot and recovery image, and the dumchar_info content from phone, and I can adapt it to that version too.
