If Developer Options is not located under settings then enable it by going to Settings > About Phone > Device Info and tap on Build Number for about 7-8 times. And then go back and follow the previous step.
Step 1: Install the Lenovo Vibe S1 Driver & Mediatek Driver ( first go to smartphone driver and install "dpinst.exe" then install Usb VCOM driver. to do that please refer google to how to do it in your current OS

Step 2: Extract SP Flash Tools on your desktop

Step 3: Extract TWRP folder on your desktop

Step 4: Open flash_tool.exe from the SP Flash Tools folder and clock Scatter-loading and then browse the TWRP folder and select the MT6752_Android_scatter.txt

Step 5: In the Flash Tool Window Press CTRL + SHIFT + O a new options window will open. Click download and then tick USB Checksum and close the window

9) Remove the cable and press volume up and down + powerkey together and wait for the the lenovo logo or vibrate, it will go to twrp if you see black scree please wait for 2 mintues after twrp come copy the "UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46" file to the phone and flash it

Note: Custom Recovery of SevenMaxs is the current updated recovery available but when you try to Wipe (dalvik,cache,system,data,etc) it will take more time ,you have to wait it to complete other than this no other issue

All the above are taken from different resources so if you find any difficulty ask to known experts.

Do remember this twrp recovery will only work on Android 6.0

Twrp takes takes about 1-2 minutes to boot up as it has to time out the screen once to turn on the display(bug in twrp) in that time don't press anything or tap on the screen or the timeout will reset, after waiting for 1 minute(screen time out time) press power key and it should show the twrp recovery

and yeah after flashing twrp, please flash SuperSu or Magisk or you'll face bootloop
