The error message hints to a wrong firmware. Are you certain that you chose a ROM compatible with your device?

of course. I had flashed this custom rom (s226 life xvibe 0.5) a year ago under win7 with FT, now I tried it again - the same rom and another one later version - s226 life xvibe 1.2

p.s. just flashed on win7 , and its working, but under linux FT still doesn't want to flash ((

p.s.2 I've downloaded off firmware P780_8G_ROW_S124_140403 and I've tried to flash it. When scatter was chosen, location path of "PRELOAD" section was empty. I clicked it and chosen preload.img in target_bin. Then I clicked Download and get "PMT changed for the ROM; it must be downloaded" message. If I try again and don't touch "PRELOAD" section, the error still is "Unrecognized ROM detected".
Maybe its all about that my lenovo p780 has integrated battery (which I cannot pull out to prevent loading device, when it connected to PC) and PC system cannot catch the moment of the device loading, because its disconnecting after a few seconds and ttyACM0 is disappearing (see the log)?

If you are 100 % certain that the firmware and preloader.bin are correct, you can try to flash it as Firmware Upgrade. As far as I know the partitioning format has changed some time before the linux tool became available.
I don't think that the battery causes the error...
