There's no section yet, just this thread. This phone deserves it's own section though! It is incredibly good value for money.

Go here and post that you want this phone to have its own section, hit that thanks button for anyone suggesting a Lenovo K8 Note - and with time, persistance and enough interest we should have our own section.

Share your thoughts and questions below!

update kernel source link

They already found a way to root by flashing patched boot image. Anyone just confirm and tell if the twrp works so that I can update links
