You can try brother and give your response here, So others can also be benefited.
Although I have not noticed any bugs in 207. So if 208 is also bug free or Lenovo have not done any thing to bootloader then YOu can try.

@ramisumi I couldn't get it worked for my phone. Everything was working(twrp,root,supersu,xposed, etc on lollipop) until step 10. After upgrading to marshmallow I ended up boot loop where it says "Android is upgrading". I restarted it's even more worse. It's not booting to stock or twrp recovery also.
