i know this rom doesn't have custom recovery but i hoped it could be installed after flashing.
Could we switch the recovery.img before flashing roms on the phone just like we have to do with the preloader ?
Or only flash the recovery.img with the flashing tools ?
Yes you could. Just replace stock recovery with custom one.
I recomend TWRP from life ROM that you will find here:https://drive.google.com/folderview?...TA&usp=sharing
Extract from archive CHINA ROM - RECOVERY.IMG; COPY ; replace your stock recovery with this one;

I flashed ROM P780_S135_130917_rooted_twrp_gapps with Smart Phone Tools and after that my phone was dead.
I flashed this ROM because i want to flash the ROM AOSP-4.4.2-v.1.8 after that.
Thx stympy for your tutorial to bring back my phone back to life!
I donīt know if my phone is chinese or not. There is no date on the battery, only chinese letters.
I need help to flash ROM AOSP-4.4.2-v.1.8.
So.. lets see.. Your phone is chinese, thats for sure.
On your box that came with your phone you should see the date of fabrication like 04.2014 with some chinese letters.
This tipe of phones are called SPEED like this: Lenovo P780 Speed. They have done some modifications.
After you flashed your stock Firmware, must do this steps:
1. install MobileUncleTool from google play;
2. download a rooting tool; the firmware must be rooted;
3. download custom recovery TWRP or CWM;
4. put the custom firmware on your internal storage;
5. open Mobile UncleTool; go to recovery update select recovery and flash(update).
6. tell me iff something goes wrong;
