Attempts for phone root with intention to change the modem
Dear stympy and the rest of to whom it may concern,
Writing again to submit my dissapointment that has no positivie results at all. Not able to root, install TWRP or any other ROM Manager software etc...nothing!
Would like to specify that I have a Lenovo P780 device with 4 GB memory and most likely a device for sale on Chinese markets as labels on the cover box of the phone and stickers under the back cover are in Chinese language.
Although, the device I bought from a seller as new device was upgraded to a firmware he said, in fact I do update my firmware over air which is designated for the "Rest of the World" (as per Settings info.).
I go through the step-by-step guide written by stympy and I am stuck with SP Flash Tools software.. I tried using the SP Flash Tools as per the guide while the phone is in switched on and off conditions but the utility does nothing to the phone, as if it the phone is not recognized by SP Flash Tools.
When I connect the phone to the PC in the switched off condition I get the message thatn an as USB device not recognized asking for a driver (I browse to the drivers folder indicating the correct driver initially it was recognized and now not anymore) but when I Connect the phone to the PC in the switched on condition then phone is fine, immediately get recognized and I get access to the Internal Memory and SD Card content.
Very, very strange and ridiculous behaviour.
Same problem actuall to other PC connected with my Lenovo P780.
I wonder if there is another way to root my phone and change modem firmware. Please keep me advised accordingly,
Thanks a lot for your support
