It worked ! Thanks.

The reason I didn't try it straight away was all the comments about wrong links etc. And some of the links afterwards didn't work. So I was looking for a recovery.img file in other places.
I read your new message, so I used the first link in your post which gave me the recovery img. The TWRP link doesn't seem to work, but I already have an up to date TWRP on the phone.

the reason with the links is that ,,,when ever i copy a link and paste it here ,,it doesnt showup,,some contents of the url gets missed.
also the google drive link i posted got deleted.

if someone want the link they can PM me,,,,i guess that will work

Hello again
I have tried to do the same operation on another identical phone.
But after a try to flash Twrp I get a message

writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: download for partition 'recovery' is not allowed)

Yes, it's detected in Fastboot and shows up with fastboot devices
I've tried fastboot oem unlock

I get a message on the screen saying volume up for yes, volume down for no.
Strangely, if I press volume up, it doesn't unlock, but volume down it unlocks.
I get a message on the computer that the unlock is okay.
But I still can't flash the Twrp img file.
I've also tried SP Flash, but that doesn't work either.
I already used SP flash with this phone a year ago, and that worked fine, but that was then!

I really can't make out what's going on.

My phone TWRP-looped many times. The solution is actually easy.

1. Reflash using SPFlashtool ONLY the stock recovery
2. boot into stock recovery
3. choose english > press reboot phone
4. phone will reboot into rom without problemos
5. reflash TWRP
cheers

or
1. Copy stock recovery.img into sdcard
2. In twrp, select Install and navigate to where you put stock recovery.img
3. Press install image. Then, Select recovery.img. Slide to install
4. boot into stock recovery
5. choose english > press reboot phone
6. phone will reboot into rom without problemos
7. reflash TWRP
DONE

try to flash to Lenovo Stock Recovery from this link
forum.xda-developers.com/k3-note/development/official-build-lenovo-k3-note-k50a40-6-t3370537
search for "Stock Recovery" for download link

in TWRP, you need to reboot into bootloader and flash it with adb command in bootloader (need to install driver and adb first!)
adb command list
fastboot devices <enter>
fastboot oem unlock <enter>
fastboot flash recovery "C:\<recovery_folder>\recovery.img" <enter>
fastboot reboot <enter>
done!

    did it help?
    My phone got a bootloop to twrp 3.0.2-7 after I wanted to restore to factory settings (from settings menu), I tried flashing 'new' RR-N-v5.8.5-20170926-aio_otfp-FINAL (during flashing I had 2 errors - logs available), tried to flash with some other roms, I tried to restore some old backups - same thing = bootloop to twrp.
    I don't want to brick it like the guy from this thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/k3-note/help/help-unbricking-k3-note-k50a40-charging-t3699007

    I did not had time to revert rooting and remove custom recovery, so can't say much at this moment.

    But your bootloop issue is most probably due to presence of TWRP, you need to completely remove root & TWRP, restore stock boot and recovery, then try.

    Exactly the same thing happened to me.
    So I tried your idea and updated my TWRP, going from 2.8 to 3.1..1

    But exactly the same thing happens - it still bootloops, but to the new TWRP.

    I've tried flashing several different ROMs that all worked in the past. But no change.


    do as what i have mentioned above,..and give update
