(maybe s/w bug)

Hi saturn. I was able to flash the Overseas ROM using you modified EBR2. Great partitioning! However the problem with my phone still persisted even with the new battery The charging port may be the culprit. The phone is still able to flash with the battery pulled out. But, once the phone is plugged to recharge, it spontaneously reboots. So, right now I just use an external charger for the batteries. I hope the phone can still be fixed. Thanks.

Help Please...
Hey guys, I own the same phone that you guys have (Lenovo S920), rooted, and bloatware removed.

I removed Chrome, LeCalendar, Norton, and Tutorial. Unfortunately, now I cannot update OTA, as the recovery screen is looking for ChromeWithBrowser.apk, which I already removed. I tried installing a signed ChromeWithBrowser apk but it still didn't work. Am now beginning to think that I need to reflash the original ROM just to be able to get the update.

Anybody have any ideas how to solve this OTA issue? Would really appreciate the input...thanks!

i faced the same problem, i had rooted my phone, and changed my build.prop, when i tried to install the OTA update, it failed
but i managed to get the update by doing the follwing:

1- download the OTA update but don't reboot your phone
2- search in your SD card for the update.zip file (located on a folder but i forget the name)
3- open the update.zip and edit the update script deleting the assert line(s) that make it fail
4- reboot into recovery and flash the update.zip file

i hope it will work for you

Today i have found out that if you put a magnet near the upper third of the left side of your Lenovo S920 it will lock/unlock
i know this has been on the iPad and other phones for a while now, but it is not announced in the Lenovo S920 specs!
and it is a cool thing to have a flip cover, attach a magnet just the correct place, and viola! you have a smart flip cover

I tried doing that, to no avail When I try to manually add those apk's I get the same error message, which is the assert thingy failed. Basically I took out Chrome, the Tutorial, and LeCalendar.

What am I missing here?

the assert error you are getting is caused by the MD5 check some, since you have changed/deleted those files the MD5 for them is changed, and the update script in the OTA file will check that MD5 and match it to the original.
that what is causing the update to fail.

the solution is to extract the update script form the update.zip (open it using winrar or something) go to "\META-INF\com\google\android" search for the "updater-script" extract it, then open it in any text editor and remove the line(s) that is asserting the files you have deleted.
example:
assert(apply_patch_check("/system/app/LenovoClock.apk", "f7c75be4512cb791baa754f17df896205f27cb53", "1cdf8cd84122d93668d77d14fb5692474ff301a9"));
this line asserts that the "LenovoClock.apk" exists, and it has the correct MD5

remove similar lines for apk(s) you have deleted.

after that, put the "updater-script" again in the "update.zip" file and copy it back to your SD card, reboot into CWM recovery, turn off assertion, and flash "update.zip" by choosing flash zip file form sd card

i hope it will work for you

hey sorry for the late reply; been extremely busy and I just found the time to carry out your instructions earlier.

Unfortunately it didn't work... When I tried to update, it tries to, then it closes with just one word "ERROR".

I updated the 2 updater-script files as you instructed (one of them was the updater then the other had a (~) sign after the word updater).

Should I have just updated one?
