@333vasc can you try in the fastboot: fastboot oem unlock-go
Look at the attachment for hidden fastboot oem commands. be careful, i haven't tested those. use at risk!

Thanks for the help but they don't work, still getting oem unlocking not allowed. On the lenovo forum i found one extra command fastboot -i 0x1ebf oem unlock, fastboot -i 0x1ebf flashing unlock, but that only gives <waiting for any device>

hmm, i wonder what does set-display-panel does; this can be useful when flashing firmware of single sim but a 1080p screen.
just a thought tho, wouldn't recommend if you're dependent on your phone right now.

You have to boot twrp immediately or else syatem will overwrite the recovery partition.

Sent from my Lenovo Vibe K5 using XDA Labs

Now twrp is install in my device.
after many attempts to install, first i boot into the twrp recovery using adb command and then allow twrp to make change in the system and then install twrp and it is working
thank you for your kind help

When i try to restore my twrp backup (and other backups like s102 & s155 also downloaded from sherps website), phone stuck in bootlogo (or is it boot animation?? idk, i am talking about Lenovo powered by android screen). I waited for 15-20 min, nothing happens. Any help please.
Edit: Nevermind, Just noticed that the data partition was formated as f2s filesystem automatically by TWRP when formating Internal Storage. So i had to re format data partition file system as ext4.

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

    noob guide needed!

    TWRP:
    1. Activate the Developer options (Settings> About phone> Device Information> to tap 7 times in Build number)
    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!

    root:
    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.
    3. Confirm execution flashing, restart the phone and voila!

    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.
