  3. Hi Papajack,

    I have experience in rooting Android phones in the past, and I can say that the steps are right and same as how to root other mobile phone. I am just hesitant in doing it with my Lenovo A7000 Plus due to the first comment on your post that is saying that his phone was not successfully root. Can you please confirm that the issue was not caused by your post? I can then have 100% confidence in following your guide to my phone and I will give an update with its outcome. Thanks in advance Papajack.

    • Hi Papajack, sorry for that question. I'm just making sure. I'll be conducting the process now and will be posting here the update. Also kindly delete my previous comments, it seems there was an issue on why my post was submitted multiple times. Thanks bro.

  4. Hi Papajack, as said, I've tried your guide to my phone. Unfortunately until the time of writing, I have no luck in rooting my phone. Here are some information about my phone, computer and process I've done.

    Computer Info:

    Phone Info:

    Error Encountered:

    I've googled the error and landed on this page for information:

    I've downloaded the latest version of Smart Phone Flash Tool but still I am having the same error. I am suspecting that my Windows version is the issue, I'll try the process again on a Windows 7 computer and post an update after. Another issue I am thinking of is that my build version or baseband version is not supported by the process. I just updated two days ago via the over the air system update.

    Sir Papajack, your advice are greatly appreciated and will help me succeed in this process. Thanks in advance.

    PS: I've tried the process with USB Debugging on and off.

  5. I tried your method and bricked my phone. Then I tried your guide in fixing a deadboot lenovo a7000 plus, it just vibrates when I try to power it on or go to recovery mode. Now I have no phone. I seriously need some help.

  6. i did use the above steps. 1st check usb debugging under developer option. turn off phone. and final before u press download check DL/DA all must be checked. to see it under option>options DL/DA whatever youll find there just check all. then your good to go.
