thanks for this brother, is there any method to unlock bootloader or is it not neccessary to unlock bootloader to install custom rom

just enable OEM unlock in developer options. then flash the TWRP image and voila.

You must flash TWRP and then boot in TWRP right away and flash SuperSU or any other root module.
If you boot your stock system without root, it will reset the recovery with stock one.

After doing all Steps K5 contnues with Android Version 5.1.1

K5 A6020a40. (Hardware Version H201) Trying to update Android Version from 5.1.1 to newer one.
Used twrp-k5-3.1.1_shreps.img.
After reboot device continues with Version 5.1.1 .

All Steps in the article correctly done:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=67159924&postcount=17

    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.
