Hello,
Sorry if this question is asked before, I did search actually in the forum, but couldn't find anything clear.

I got a lenovo k3 note, but it has some annoying apps installed which may be infected.
Apps such:
I love wallpaper
Caller ID
Twitter
MaxxAudio
Clean Master
DU battery saver
Browser (it seems there are two installed)
probably more....
All these apps are installed in the system so they can not be uninstalled directly. so rooting is a must in this case I guess (i'm newbie in these things)

So the main question is how can this phone be rooted?

Thanks in advance.

It is wired that I can not disable any pre-installed app. Is this an issue in Android 5.0? Can someone please help?

It is easy to root this wonderful smartphone :
1/ Go here and download the CWM recovery v6.0.5.1 : http://pan.baidu.com/s/1mguuByg
2/ Flash it with SPFlashTool. Important : you must to check the option "DA DL All with Checksum" otherwise it will not boot!
3/ root : reboot to CWM recovery and install the supersu update zip : https://download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU/
4/ Gapps: reboot to CWM recovery and install google gapps 5.0 minimal : http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...ition-t2943330

Here where you can find the last official roms : http://www.vibeui.com/vibeui/rom?key=k3%20note

After flashing an official rom, you have to redo all those steps.

I don't think the phone will be rooted in that way. I did red that before. I do have access to CWM, in Chinese language unfortunately, but the phone is not rooted.

Hi,

I rooted my Lenovo K3 Note just yesterday (received it on tuesday) and had the same problem (Twitter + User Experience with viruses [checked with ESET] ).

This topic helped me quite a lot, but I still had some trouble flashing the phone.

If it can help you, here is a link to what I did : chinasmartphonereview.com/lenovo-lemo-k3-note-recovery-google-service/

Since I had to tweak the process a bit, here is what I did :
  1. Download MT6752 Flash Tool and MT6752 USB Driver (see link above)
  2. Install USB Driver and reboot PC (just to be sure)
  3. Unzip Flash tool and choose flash_tool.exe
  4. Run Flash Tool, Option – Download – “DA DL All with Checksum” must be ticked on
  5. Click Scatter-loading-Choose MT6752_Scatter (CWM recovery folder)
  6. Tick the Recovery (if it's not already ticked)
  7. Turn off Phone and Remove Battery, Remove SD-Card, SIM Card
  8. Plug-in USB Cable to PC (USB Port) – Phone to PC
  9. Press POWER for a couple of seconds
  10. Choose Download and Click Download (Flash tool)
  11. Reinsert Battery
If Unsuccessful (Red Bar) – repeat from step Turn off Phone and Remove Battery, Remove SD-Card, SIM Card

Once it was done, I installed SuperSU and an app to remove those troublesome viruses (for example : "Easy Uninstaller" on the play store).

Hope it helps...
Still, many thanks to dreambo

I'm gonna try this now.
Been waiting for a root option to remove the 4(!) stock browsers and the other bull**** that this phone comes with

Quote:

Choose Download and Click Download (Flash tool)

I did the whole thing, waited for about half an hour (twice), but absolutely nothing is happening. Any tips?

I had to try several times in order to successfully do it.
I don't know if it changes anything but, did you activate the "USB Debugging" ? I activated it on my last try...

My main problem was linked to the drivers : my computer had a hard time using the right ones (always checking Windows Update, had to disable it).

When it worked, I just pressed the power button, released it, inserted the battery and clicked "Download" in the next 5 sec. My computer used the right drivers, everything went smoothly (CMW installed in less than 5 sec with a big green symbol that I was REALLY happy to see).

If it doesn't trigger in the first 10sec, it failed : you can unplug your USB, shutdown your phone, remove the battery and repeat the process (press the power button, release it, plug the USB cable, insert battery, press Download).
Just keep an eye on your drivers to make sure Windows is using the ones you have installed...

Hope it helps...

Please do the step 11 before the step 10.

Armacryss: please change this in your post.
