Modding Lenovo K3 Note
I anticipate that I will, nor the forum will take responsibility 'of malfunctions and \ or damage!

Part One - CMW Install and Root command line

In this thread, I'll describe a simple, fast, and definitely safer than SPFTools.
SPFTools VCOM working on ports that are not always recognized, sometimes give problems also installing special drivers, they are almost always a problem for Windows because of the signatures on the driver.

Closed this little digression for information, we start with the drivers:

Quote:

Driver Lenovo K3 Note + PDAnet+:
https://mega.co.nz/#!O4lmBaZa!jCUk1z...xi6TXuwcBOCv5k

Install all drivers Lenovo inside. Once you finished enable the USB debugging and wait for Windows to complete its configuration.
When completed restart the PC and install the utility on the device:

Be sure to restart to have all the drivers installed correctly and stay in Debug USB.
Without this included in your terminal this .zip file to obtain permits Root later:

Now download this Minimal ADB (with Recovery K3 notes included) from here:

Quote:

Minimal ADB & Fastboot + K3 Note Recovery (CWM):
https://mega.co.nz/#!rs0lHZrI!hE3Ux9...92uU0KJB3iQNdo

Now comes the fun part!
Unzip the zip file and open the file py_cmd.exe and quietly run these commands:

Code:
adb devices
To ensure that the PC recognizes the device, and if it should be unauthorized make sure that USB debugging is enabled.

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
This command will reboot the phone on a black screen, going in fastboot .

Code:
fastboot devices
This command will confirm the above.

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
This command will install the much sought CWM, but it is not over yet!

Code:
fastboot reboot
This command will restart the device.

Perfect! now to get root permissions, there will be that off the device, wait a few seconds and turn it on using this key combination:

Quote:

VOLUME UP - VOLUME DOWN - POWER

Wait until the CWM is not playing, choose obviously the English language.
Subsequently searching

Code:
install zip
... and subsequently ...

Code:
choose zip from /sdcard
... looking for that zip file SuperUser inserted at the beginning.

Et voila! The device is unlocked and ready to receive new rom and functionality!

Part Two - Install new ROM from SPFTools CWM does not work when

Many with the above guide you tried to change the finding in eom stuck.
With this procedure you can go back, but before we move forward I want to give you a few details regarding the update of the rom:

*- The rom mounted on chinese devices with Play Service support and multilanguage already moddate the seller.
*- Given the above, download a rom 'official' (see NeedRom) carrying the phone in its native state.
*- If you need to download the latest versions from the site VibeUI not download the latest available, sometimes the downgrade is not possible (personal experience).

Let's start!

First, before you go ahead to make sure you have followed the guidance post 100% in the first part of the thread.
Follow the link:

Now unpack everything and put it in a folder convenient for you.

I post the link of a rom in case I tried to see if this will work, even to you. To me it is working well.
In the third part if this rom works almost everyone will get all roms that I find around and decide what to do and what to do.

Quote:

Rom 1949Deal:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/zep53n1j21...20rom.rar?dl=0
Password: 1949dealjoy

Once downloaded, extract directory in a readily available and open flash_tool.exe .

Before we go on, first remove the battery and attach only the USB cable, then set the SPFTools this:

Set in this way the program.

In step [1] look for the previously extracted folder and locate the file.

Give the program a few seconds to load the rom, and after leaving it in Download Only Click Download .
Obviously nothing will happen, to make sure that going forward, you can simply insert the battery and wait for the completion of the transaction.

Reinstall the back cover and turn on the device. Give it about 8/10 minutes for the first startup.

Et voila! We are again ready to modding this Lenovo K3 notes!

Part Three - Collection ROM

In update


You will not find in this type of tour guides, as is the link is driving are my own work, so excluding the Play app store are my property. If you have any problem with the link, do not hesitate to ask.


If you have been useful, it is needless to say that it is a thanks is appreciated!

Better add a custom ROM for Lenovo K3 note in the thread has official Roms of lenovo k3 note are useless bcuz FDD 4G and VPN are not supported in k3 notes official ROM. It would be better if some one finds and updates the thread with k3 notes custom roms available

Do you have it and know that FDD LTE is not supported? Sounds unlikely as China Unicom has FDD LTE in addition to TDD LTE (and the phone supports China Unicom).

Yes I have lenovo k3 note since few weeks but still I am not able to make FDD 4g work in my K3 note but yes I have fixed the VPN problem with a custom ROM but still 4g is not working in my K3 note.
