How to Install TWRP:
Note: that version is UNOFFICIAL TWRP-3.3.0-0524

.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 https://devsjournal.com/usb-drivers-...d-devices.html

Pre-Requisite 2

You must also install: Minimal ADB & Fastboot, you can download the software
from here https://devsjournal.com/download-min...boot-tool.html

Pre-Requisite 3
Your device needs this with unlocked bootloader
if it is not unlocked do the tutorial to unlock HERE

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'

------------------------------------------------
1) Download TWRP: recovery-TWRP-3.3.0-0524-LENOVO_Z5PRO_GT-CN-wzsx150.img
2) After getting the TWRP file put it in the same ADB folder
3) Now start the phone in bootlader by doing this:
Connect the phone to the PC
Start the Minimal ADB & Fastboot program from the PC
On the PC screen, type:

adb reboot bootloader

(A request may appear on the phone screen with permission of USB debugging, accept it)

The phone will now restart in Bootloader mode.

4) Now that you are in bootloader mode, from the PC, from the screen
Minimal ADB and Fastboot type:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-TWRP-3.3.0-0524-LENOVO_Z5PRO_GT-CN-wzsx150.img
Sending 'recovery' (98304 KB) OKAY [ 5.970s]
Writing 'recovery' OKAY [ 0.539s]

My device was unlocked by vendor. I'm unable to boot into twrp to root my device. The flashing is successful but it will only boot in a simple recovery where I can only install an "update.zip".



Have tried this https://forum.xda-developers.com/z5-...5#post81055547 but the problem remains.
Hope anyone can help. I need to root my device. Thanks

Have the same scenario as you but I haven't done the tutorial yet as I read your post and I got concerned. Have you fix you issue? Is it safe to do this tutorial?

No solution so far. No twrp and no root
Now I have flashed the original rom with ZUI 10. Works well and updated to ZUI 11.

I've read somewhere that you need to flash vbmeta.img if verified boot is enabled, however I couldn't find the correct img to flash anywhere. Maybe if we ask someone that has the phone already rooted.

Can anyone post wzsx150's newest TWRP 3.3.1 from October 4? It's in this thread but the download link is for registered users only. I can't sign up for a Club Lenovo account.

What method would you follow to install the stock rom, like you, it comes with the bootloader unlocked by the seller and I don't know how to flash stock rom

I gave up on clublenovo. They require SMS authentication to post so even when you log in you can't post and download. TWRP 3.3.1 is also available from 4PDA. That's what I used.
