Hello
This is the post which helped me to get root access on this device.
I cannot post an url, so search this on Google : [ROOT] Lenovo K5 Pro L38041
And the Chinese ROM on Google : lenovo s5 pro firmware and the third searched link
Before get into the process of rooting, if you have a global rom, make a copy of it...
There is no global rom which you can download, so, I installed the chinese one, but it's ok, as soon as you get root you can easily delete all the bloatware. But, if somebody has the global rom, I kindly please to make a copy and share with us .

Sounds good.. but without global stock firmware I won't try it. What is the difference between chinese and global stock?

How did you go about installing the chinese rom? I accidentally flashed the chinese boot.img to mine, would like to install the rest of the chinese rom to fix it. Thanks

No luck on finding global firmware, or finding TWRP for this phone, but here's a quick guide I assembled for rooting the ZUI firmware:

Firmware Links:
https://yadi.sk/d/jvDlauax6DjGEQ/Fir...20Pro%20L58041

Important: Make sure to install the Qualcomm drivers

bootloader unlock from:
https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=929173
To unlock bootloader:
"On the site https://www.zui.com/iunlock in the first field enter IMEI1.
In the second field, enter serial number from fastboot (not the one in the settings), then enter mail and verification code.
Tick the checkbox, the sn.img file will be sent by email
In the developer’s menu, enable boot loader unlock and enable USB debugging
Put the sn.img file into the folder with ADB.exe, Start cmd. prompt, enter the commands:"
1. adb reboot bootloader
2. fastboot flash unlock sn.img
3. fastboot oem unlock-go

Rooting guide:
Copy boot.img from firmware archive to phone, use Magisk Manager to patch the file. Copy patched_boot.img into folder with adb.exe
To flash your patched img:
1. adb reboot bootloader
2. fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img
3. fastboot reboot

Factory Reset:

Whats working:
Magisk
Xposed
BusyBox
etc.

Credits: Thanks to suninterbru for the bootloader unlock link.
Thanks to 4pda members for firmware links etc
