Can you please give instructions as to how i can either merge A706 Internal SD with phone memory or keep as little Internal SD as possible and merge remaining Inernal SD with phone memory? With current setup space is a terrible problem.
You XDA user, so i bealive you know how to use ADB command line,
root and busybox is required to be installed.
Just enter this commands one after another
Code:
adb shell
give ADB interface root permision
command line must be look like [email protected]:/ # if you have [email protected]:/# type su command
Code:
busybox fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0
Code:
busybox fdisk /dev/block/mmcblk0

hi to Oddisey,

A706 working fine with increased internal /data partition.
Could not resist asking few more queries, if time permits you may answer.
(1) is /dev/block/mmcblk0p17 is a /system or RAM partition and /dev/.......p18 is /cache?
(2) if /dev/...p17 is system, then which is the RAM partition?
(3) we partition /dev/.....22 and and change partition's system id with "t" to "4f" . What does 4f denotes and why the partition is so small, 3mb if i understand correctly. Where is it mounted?

This has been quite exciting learning experience thanks to you.

My a706 got some malware from moborobo and after a factory reinstall, the malware is still there (it was rooted before if that matters).

However, the problem is that I've downloaded the stock roms (A706ROW_1_S_2_001_0020_130821.rar, and more which all appear to be the same thing) and:

1) My phone no longer recognizes qsb files in the recovery tool (sd card update). It appears to want a zip file (I tried renaming the qsb to zip). So, the qsb file is not even there to choose. I'm guessing a Lenovo update did this?
2) There appears to be no scatter file in order to use the target_bin files and flash tool?

I installed the CWM recovery image and that allowed me to try a few other roms I've found, but basically my phone is looping to the CWM recovery tool. The CWM recovery doesn't see the external sdcard or the internal sdcard in the sd update option. It sees the main partition as the sdcard. I can mount sdcard (internal) and sdcard2 (external), but they don't appear as options in the update tool still.

So, both options seem like a no go. How do I get this phone back to stock?

Any help is much appreciated.

UPDATE:

I didn't create that broken m*lw*re link above. So not sure what that's about.

I got my phone working with CM11_LENOVO_melles1991_BETA_13.zip posted a few page back and I was starting to dig it until I realized the wifi is not working. So, that's not really acceptable.

I also tried A706ROW_1_S_2_001_0023_140116.zip (found on the internet somewhere...but has a mostly correct looking directory structure for sideload...and which is the actual version it was at). Won't boot.

UPDATE (the next day):
Without configuring hardly anything... something in that CM11_LENOVO_melles1991_BETA_13.zip used all my load going to websites that "were not in my coverage agreement." (or some sms message like that from my provider) So there's something mal in that image. As soon as I saw that sms message from the provider, I shut it down.

I finally got my phone working with "adb sideload A706ROW_1_S_2_001_0023_140116.zip", but that image was hanging at the Lenovo screen forever and then just finally booted up after letting it sit over night and trying again today. When I booted up it was connected to my computer and also had the TWRP recovery console installed (by accident actually). So, I don't know if either of those had something to do with it. Maybe it didn't have enough charge previously to finish the install?

Anyway, TWRP 2.8.1.0 broke all functionality with adb and fastboot (waiting for device always, including in sideload mode), so I don't recommend installing that on the a706. I was literally dead in the water and looking for a manual way to uninstall TWRP and reinstall CWM (and about to blow a gasket) when the phone booted up and was back in business. Crazy.

You need to flash it using Philz Touch Recovery. I've just flashed it and its stable, smooth, clean, and working fine except the camera error"cant connect to the camera" so I've flashed google camera. :good:

(Remember don't allow your battery to drain to 0% it will give a big problem to charge it [my experience])

Can You Please Give Me Google Camera Flash Package Link And Detail On How To Flash It.;)

Hi, can i talk?

Is there a stable version of cm11 for lenovo a706 (or cm12 & cm13)?



http://forum.xda-developers.com/and...-a706-a760-t3391010/post67136871#post67136871 - This Is CM 13 Un-Official Build Website.
There Is No CM 12 But Many CM 11 Un-Official Builds.
One Thing For Sure, All Are Stable. But I Don't Recommend CM 13 Because There Are Camera Bugs, Front ( No Solution Yet ) And Rear ( Works Sometime ) For Me. Also The Screen Recorder Soft Reboots Your Device Every Time You Click Start Recording. Internal Memory Is Just 0.90 GB. That's A Major Flaw.

4.4.4 ROM's

For 4.4.4 CM 11 By Anonim47 ( Which Was The Best 4.4.4 For Me), CM 11 And This Is G-Apps

I really need help!!

I need a healthy EFS backup/QCN backup file from a healthy A706 ROW. Please someone send me a file so I can restore it to my A706 via QPST.
Note: IF the IMEI get changed, I will restore them to my original IMEI (I know how to do it).

What was happened:
My phone got bricked and I accidentally erase certain partition via fastboot (partition table missing) when I tried to unbrick it.
Although it was successfully unbricked, it leaves my phone being useless because SIM cards are undetected.

I wasn't be able to turn on radio (dial *#*#INFO#*#* > Phone information > "Turn on Radio" button), so I guess this is where the problem came from: something wrong with the EFS/modem partition. When I tried to erase it via fastboot, it tells me that modemst1 & modemst2 not found or missing.

I've tried many times reflashing stock rom and also custom roms back and forth, nothing changed, my simcard still not detected and radio still won't turn on! Then I've read some Dev's advice to restore EFS partition by copying the working QCN from healthy A706 and inject it to my phone.

So, please help me send your A706 ROW QCN file.

Thanks.

This is a good budget device when compared to other devices from lead manufacturers like Samsung, Sony, LG or Huawei.



While searching on the internet I did find some Root & CWM installation methods.
I will be updating the relevant posts as and when needed.
You can look in the list below for what you want to do with your device.


ATTENTION!!! READ THIS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Friend, there are two versions of this device in the market:

1. A706 (Chinese model)
2. A706_ROW (International Model)

The ROMs in this thread are only for the A706ROW model of this phone unless otherwise stated.
If you have the chinese model or another model A760 (which is a different model) then the ROMs in this thread are not for you.

Model A706 and A760 are two different models with almost same specifications. This DOES NOT mean that the ROMs of A706ROW are compatible with A760.

Please DO NOT confuse Lenovo A706 with Lenovo A760 as these are two different devices!!! Flash or experiment at your own risk!!!!

If you share a ROM link for any of the above devices, then please mention clearly the device for which the ROM can be used.




What to do with your Device ?

Rooting your device VOIDS your warranty. Remember if you are doing this, it is at your own sole responsibility
and I cannot be held responsible for any damage to your device, data loss, or any personal injury as a result of your actions.
And, If you still feel it is worth the effort, proceed with caution!


FOR NOOBS
--------------------
Read the instructions (click on SHOW to read) before attempting anything from the list below!

First you need to have the Android SDK installed on your computer. Or atleast you need to have the adb & fastboot files available on your computer.

Here's a good post that tells you how to setup ADB and fastboot.

Here's a post that has a list of adb/shell commands for noobs.

Ok, once you are done with the setup of ADB & fastboot on your computer, then you can proceed with the below instructions.
--------------------

IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE FLASHING:
-------------------------------------------------------------

Recently, I have noticed that many people after buying the phone are flashing any firmware to their phones and most of the time without checking the phone versions and the OS versions. In the stock firmware post, I had mentioned that people having the Chinese version of the phone should NOT flash the ROW (international) firmware otherwise it would mess up their phone and network etc.

SOLUTION FOR SIM ERROR & DOWNGRADING TO CHINESE ROM
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, some of the people have already done such a mistake and for those people (who are having SIM or network problems and want to go back to chinese ROM, I am sticking this post by danyno1 to the OP:

here on 4pda russian website is the newest build of LOs11 (useful for A706 with memory repartitioning) by Weritos (sorry,not posted here before,but tested a lot). At "Download" spoiler - google drive folder,so i am sure there won't be download errors.Trust me,it's stable enough and installation shouldn't have some issues. IDK if it is nessesary information here,but who knows.Peace :)
NB: Oh,gDrive folder to make life easier.

I think it's time for you to move on. :good:
Because the world now runs on 4G technology which the lenovo doesn't support and the next factor is the battery and screen size.

Though I'll help you with your bricked device.
If you can access the fastboot mode or recovery then you are lucky but if you can't access them then that might be a problem because you need to rush to the service center.

Click here to get further instructions if your device is soft bricked.

    ------------------------------------------
    after reading the whole topic posts, and testing all the methods , the problem is solved [thanks to mixbox360's posts.] i'm going to just copy and paste his 2 separated posts.
    BEST soloutions for these 2 common problems :
    #1 device doesnt recognize simcards
    #2 being unable to downgrade to the chinees stock rom

    soloution of the #1 problem :

    how I fixed: Just Installed the QNeonModern 1.7 ROM... then I installed the update of a chinese ROM from bootdroid (I mean putt the update.qsb file un the sdfuse directory o my sd card, then power and vol+ to enter the menu and selected SD UPDATE)... thats all... I have again my chinese rom with signal for calls untill we discover how to make work the athk board in the ROW roms.

    Hope to be helpfull!

    soloution for #2 problem:
    Ok trying again to put my chinese device in ROW rom with sim signal, and found a solution:

    1:Flash via droidboot a chinese stock firmware I used the 130325

    2:Rooted device with vroot and installed CWM Recovery via ADB

    3:In the procedure to install custom rom Qneon one of the steps is to flash boot.img via fastboot... well I just didn´t do this step and flashed directly Qneon_1.7.1.zip via CWM

    4: Did data/factory reset, cache reset and dalvik cache reset

    5:Reboot system

    An Ready! Finally got my chinese device in spanish and sim signal.

    That's it! If you guys have found any more firmware download links (even for different regions, build etc.) just share them with me along with details and I will add them to the list in this post.

    CWM Installation Instructions:
    -------------------------------------------

    1. Make sure you have all the drivers for your phone installed on your computer. Download for A706 from here. Some other Qualcomm drivers (not sure if required)
    2. Make sure you have USB Debugging enabled, Install from Unknown Sources is enabled and device is detected in ADB run this command:
      Code:
      adb devices
    3. Download the CWM Recovery for A706 from here.
    4. Unzip the downloaded file to get a "recovery.img" recovery image file.
    5. Press SHIFT key + Right mouse click in the folder where the file is located and select Open Command from Here.
    6. Now, in the command prompt do the following:
      a. Reboot into Bootloader mode. Use command:
      Code:
      adb reboot bootloader
      b. Device will reboot and display Lenovo logo. (check if device is in bootloader mode by running command:
      Code:
      fastboot devices
      . If you see a device connected then you have successfully rebooted into fastboot mode.
      c. Now, run this command:
      Code:
      fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
      (This will flash the CWM recovery image to the device).
      d. Once successful, reboot the device using this command:
      Code:
      fastboot reboot
      . Or, you can keep the power+vol up+ vol down buttons pressed to restart.

    If everything has gone well, this should get CWM installed on your device. Your device is still *not rooted*. Once you have installed CWM, please proceed to the ROOT instructions post to *root* your device.
