Hello guys,
I'm glad that we finally get lollipop for our device Lenovo A6000/Plus.
Some people want to get superuser privilege, but still confuse how to install/flash it.
Here's how to get root:

What is needed:
  1. Your Lenovo A6000/Plus (Lollipop)
  2. PC (windows)
  3. Download this tools (contains adb, fastboot, supersu, custom recovery)

How to root:
  1. Enter to fastboot
    Turn off your phone
    Hold on the volume - key and hold on the power button
    Wait until lenovo logo appears with small text "Powerkey long press can reboot phone" at the bottom of the screen
  2. Connect your phone to your PC
  3. Extract the tools
  4. Open command.bat
  5. Type "fastboot boot recovery.img" (without quotes). Wait until you land on TWRP recovery
  6. Choose Advanced -> ADB Sideload -> swipe to start sideload
  7. Type "adb sideload SuperSU.zip" (without quotes)
  8. Reboot

Thanks to:
Google (ADB and Fastboot)
chainfire (SuperSU)
duniamodandroid.blogspot.com (TWRP, I don't know who created it)

NB: It can be applied to both firmware version (S052 and S028)

Yes it's safe with superuser. Don't root via kingroot it as it fails to unroot the phone.

Thanks buddy but the adb sideload command didnt work. So I placed superSU.zip it in the internal sdcard and then clicked on the install button. Thanks a lot.

I think no, Cuz twrp that we install are temporary. But if we can find or even make the permanent twrp for our device maybe that's should possible. Correct me if I'm wrong
