Wait... There's no official TWRP for Z5 Pro yet. How can you come over saying there's way to install TWRP?... Don't misguide us Mr. @BadCluster

I know that the TWRP for this phone is not out yet, the guide is an Alpha "under constrution".

But if you are brave enough today I wrote a new tutorial where you can performing the backup of your original rom and proceeed with the root.

it's not tested, you tell me if work or not

This is the post of the new guide:

Hi, this links to bullshit!

Totally agreed, I bought this phone because i found this guide, however, I found that the bootloader is locked, how to flash TWRP and root like this!

Boardmaster should remove this junk post.

http://developer.zuk.com/bootloader_2

This is the page to unlock the bootloader for ZUI, but Z5 Pro is not on the list.

Thread cleaned, waiting for a official or unofficial TWRP

Tutorial updated!

Now we have a TWRP fully working, How to unlock bootloader and do the Root with magisk!

enjoy!

Nicely done.

There is an updated Google camera mod from the forums: https://club.lenovo.com.cn/thread-5311977-1-1.html
Direct link of the apk from the thread http://183.249.249.211:8001/downloa...021_BSG_Arnova-based_v.1.2_TlnNeun_Fix_CN.apk
Maybe you can download and share with everyone.

The settings that they use here (https://club.lenovo.com.cn/thread-5268404-1-1.html) are quite rubbish though.

What I did on mine:
1) Settings -> Photo: Set front and back camera to 4:3
(so that it uses the full camera frame)

2) Settings-> Quick settings -> Advanced -> Saturation: Set to 1.9 for both front and back camera Highlight and Shadow Saturation.
(It will look bleached if you don't set this)

3) Settings-> Quick settings -> Advanced -> Base:
-Interface set to Pixel 3
-Back and front camera set to Pixel 3 XL
(I set to these and it works fine, not really sure what it does except for the change in UI)

These may not be optimal as I've only played with the phone for half a day, but they look pretty decent and much better than the settings given from the Lenovo forum user) The Z3 Pro camera is good for daytime, esp. the dual mode which creates nice bokeh effects, but at night time it is quite bad. Try Night Sight of Google Camera during low lighting to see it's magic.
