Root & Tutorials
ROOT:
Flashing SuperSU ZIP v2.46 with TWRP is working fine to get Root on your device.

[TUTO] Steps to Install TWRP and make root in the K5 / K5 plus (for noobs) thx to @samuro625

Combo Key:
To reboot in Recovery with hardware keys:
- Power off your device
- Press and hold Vol+ + Vol- + Power until TWRP boots.

TWRP and Internal Memory:
The Lenovo ROM mounts internal memory directly from "/data/media".
But on TWRP, it uses the "emulated" mount option, meaning internal memory is mounted as "/data/media/0". It's also true for custom ROMs which are using the same built Kernel as TWRP.
That means:
- Every files generated by TWRP (like backups) are visible in the "0" directory when you're in OS Mode
- If you need to see files from your OS Internal Memory, you can open and browse manually "/data/media" or just simply connect your USB and copy files to your phone, TWRP will put them in the accessible Internal Memory (ie /data/media/0) and your files will be directly visible.

I tried on A601020l36 model and it failed to mount /cache partition, does it means that is not compatible?

!! AVOID ANY OTA UPDATES WHILE ON ROOT ACCESS !!

Unroot before OTA Update is recommended, you may encounter any false positive.

idk if TWRP too.

but i request Dev to reply few suggestion on this matter.

Thankyou....

Thank you so much for this bro! It was only because of your effort that we finally have root access on our phone. Can you now try compiling cyanogenmod 12.1 for our phone? It will be appreciated a lot. Thank you again
