The Best CM13 CyanogenMod 13 ROM For Lenovo A6000/Plus B3.3 -Update5 (Stable)

Search This thread


Nov 18, 2013
I decided to try upgrade from KitKat 4.4.4, so I flashed CM13 + Update 5 + gapps + supersu. I'm surprised how slow and laggy the result is comparing to stock firmware. I cannot recommend this ROM deffinitely.

Never flashed successfully for many times, completely following your steps. Every time the recovery printed "Patching system image unconditionally..." for just few seconds, and then stayed at "Verifying the upload system image..." step permanently.
