I found some steps on this Chinese website.

Meanwhile there are also other root methods! See links below in this post.
For ROM's also see below.

What I understand from it is you have to do the following steps to root:

- Set the phone to USB debugging in the settings
- Make sure drivers are installed and the phone is recognized well by the default phone PC software
- Close all the PC phone software applications
- Make sure no other android or smart/USB-device is connected except for the phone itself.
- Download this file: root files, download link is also below in the attachment.
- Unzip it and launch the .exe (executable file) with the Chinese characters (should be first .exe in directory). Launch it with Administrator privileges.
- The shell should start the root process.
- The phone will automatically restart, don't touch it or any button, don't interrupt the shell program!!
- Now after the reboot of the phone you should press a key on your keyboard when asked.
- The shell program should continue, the phone will restart again!
- Again press a key to continue and wait for the shell program to reboot your phone for the third time (this can take some time).
- When rebooted the "Operation was successful" message should appear in the shell program.
- Now your K860 is rooted! Look for the root app in your phone to confirm. If rooting didn't work, try this process again.
- Also update the Superuser or superSU app & binaries.

I want to note that I'm not responsible for any bricked phone by using this root process! I didn't do it myself yet, so it's all at your own risk!
Also backup all data before rooting the phone!

Because I don't have this phone at the moment I can't try to root it just yet. So if anyone got it rooted using this method, let me know!

Root method seems to work, a few users in this thread already confirmed this!

Other notes:
- Links to how to add Google Apps are in this thread, please read all posts.

QR code you will find under my post number 530. First you have to download from Play store or Lenovo app store some application called QR BARCODE SCANNER or just QR SCANNER there are plenty of them. After you install that QR scanner you run it and scan QR CODE from my post it will start download Exynos Abuse app (you must be internet connected), after download is finnish just install Exynos Abuse , run it and follow instructions..

is there any way of knowing what the adb or fastboot commands are from the root method exe available from page 1 of this thread?

i get nothing but adb error messages in windows and was hoping to perform the root manually in linux, where adb works better and makes a bit more sense to me - all i need is the sequence and commands involved. is anyone able to assist? thanks

Notification problem
I have a big problem: I don't receive App notifications in real time (like from Facebook). I'm using the official rom and I don't know if the problem is created by the app called "LeSafe". Please help me!

Thanks. I meant the international rom like the row rom because I need some USSD code functions to work on my k860i.
I also email to lenovo support and they said that there was no confirmed time for the k860i row rom, so Im expecting a custom row rom for k860i
