hi stympy, thanks for quick response well I am from India, currently m on kitkat 4.4.2 but dont remember S_xxx_ROW version is there any way i can know it from custom CWM ? I can enter in CWM .

one more thing its 8GB version & i took back up of kernel using flashify before screwing boot.img. but its on internal memory & CWM is not able to mount emmc therefore not able to access that back up too. Anyways i dont think restoring kernel will fix issue as Boot.img has more package than just kernel. So, restoring stock boot.img can only fix issue...

I was upgraded to latest firmware & in lenovo community I see latest firmware as P780_ROW_S228.....

Hi. Here is the full firmware you need !
In here you will find the pieces you need to rebuild your softbrik phone !
An here you will find custom recovery TWRP. I think TWRP is mutch better then CWM. I reccomend you this one: openrecovery-twrp-2.8.4.0rev2-p780row.zip.
If you need other advices PM me.
Good Luck.

Hi. Error 4001 means that your PC or notebook cannot communicate with the phone. This error could be initiated by: bad driver, bad USB cable, faulty USB port or the worst of all broken mainboard of your phone.
Try to flash with SP Flash Tool v5 and see what is going on.
Good luck.
