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.

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

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

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

Hi, @Shreps
I wonder if you compiled this from source and if you will, can I learn how to compile it?
I'm currently on K32c36 and I've done pre-root stock firmware, but I wonder if I can compile a TWRP for Chinese user to backup and restore their data and system easily?

I'm using a prebuilt Kernel if what you're asking.
Device tree for the device is in progress.

I wonder why this is working on locked bootloader devices?
I tried to flash on my K32c36(Chinese vibe k5 plus), but it failed because it detect bootloader is locked

Edit: Tried to flash this recovery via FlashFire, but failed. If this is also for Vibe K5 plus?

What about Lenovo K5 plus (indian units)

It's already in progress with others dev, but requires lot of works.
Be patient. Thx

Hey,first of all, thanks a lot for your effort in making the TWRP recovery for the phone. I wish to know whether this works on the Indian retail units of K5 Plus (A6020a46)? Can anyone confirm on this?
Every single day I open xda forum to check the latest updates on K5 plus, and this is a huge news for the users! Thanks again mate :)

Steps to Install TWRP and make root in the K5 / K5 plus (for noobs)

2. Enable USB debugging (Settings> Developer> USB Debugging)
3. Enable OEM unlock (Settings> Developer> Unlock OEM)
4. Connect the phone with the USB cable to the computer
5. Install the drivers that come on the CD cell partition.
6. Install "Minimal adb and FlashBoot" (if not already installed).
7. Download the TWRP recovery created by @Shreps, and copy it to the folder where abd is installed.
8. Run the Minimal adb and FlashBoot program or open the command line in the folder where the abd installed.
9. Run the command "adb devices" to confirm the connection. If you have never done before in this cell, the cell must confirm the adb connection.
10. When the adb confirm the connection, run the "adb reboot bootloader" Fastboot command to enable the functionality.
11. If you want a temporary recovery run the "fastboot boot TWRP-k5-3.0.2-r1_shreps.img" command. If you want to permanently run the "fastboot flash recovery TWRP-k5-3.0.2-r1_shreps.img" command.
12. You can now use the TWRP recovery in the K5 / K5 plus!

1. Download the ZIP file SuperSU v2.46 and save it in the micro SD card.
2. Restart the phone in recovery mode: Turn off the phone, then turn it on while pressing the volume up button. a screen appears with various options and choose "recovery". When opening the recovery, select Install and locate the file you downloaded just now.
