As usual, you do anything described in this post at your own risk. No one but you is responsible for any data loss, bricking or damage of your device.

INSTALLATION:
Pre-Requirements

ADB means Android Debug Bridge, and it is software that you should always do have installed on your PC.

Pre-Requisite 1
Make sure that you have the drivers for your phone installed on your PC.
If not, you can download and install them from here

Pre-Requisite 2
You must also install: Minimal ADB & Fastboot, you can download the software
from here

Pre-Requisite 3
Your device needs this with unlocked bootloader

Pre-Requisite 4
Make sure you have enabled 'USB Debugging' and OEM Unlocking on your device
Settings -> Advanced settings -> Developer Options

PAY ATTENTION: If you do not see the Developer Options menu you need to do this:
Settings -> Device Info -> tap 6 or 7 times on the 'ZUI version' entry
A pop-up should appear, telling you 'now you are a developer'

And now, how to install:
1.Reboot phone to Fastboot mode (via adb -type adb reboot bootloader)
2.Download patched vbmeta and TWRP recovery
3.Extract it to folder with minimal adb and fastboot
4.Open cmd in this folder and type fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
5.Then type fastboot reboot bootloader
6.Type fastboot flash recovery twrp_3.3.1_decrypt_works_by_alexeei.img
7.Press volume - and select Reboot recovery, then press power button
8.Enjoy

What worked:
All functions (may be ;) if not, please say). Also TWRP now see exFAT microsd.

Thanks wzsx150 for it's TWRP for Lenovo Z5 Pro GT, some decrypt stuff taken from it.

@eduardoelorriaga , this an old thread. My thread for official TWRP builds includes instructions for flashing TWRP with locked bootloader so banking apps work fine.

    Hello, I recently went through the whole process of unlocking bootloader, installing TWRP recovery and flashing ROM, and I am at version 11.0.350 ST ROW currently.
    The ROM works fine, but now at every boot I am greeted by the "The boot loader is unlocked and software integrity cannot be guaranteed. <snip> Press power button to pause boot/continue" notice.
    According to google, it's apparently a result of the bootloader unlocking process.
    I tried to lock the bootloader again using "fastboot flashing lock", but then the phone stopped booting normally. It got stuck at the boot logo (which I believe means bricked?).
    It wouldn't work until I unlocked bootloader and reflash the ROM.

    So what I want to ask is, is it possible at this time to restore the bootloader to stock to avoid that "boot loader unlocked" notice and possibly become eligible for warranty again?

    Do you try flash qfil rom after lock bootloader?
