  5. Greetings Sir Suwito,

    First of all, thanks a LOT for your post. Few hours ago, my new A850+ got soft-bricked. It lost its default root access for apparently no reason, and stuck itself on boot logo. I was lucky to have got on this page. Seems like the steps above you pointed out are also feasible to unbrick a A850+ successfullyl. Just thought I should leave a note here about it for future reference of the others. Thank you!

    Regards,
    Hatsune.

  6. I'm using windows 8 for my laptop, I've extract USB Driver for Lenovo Smartphone & getting Lenovo_S890_ALL_Driver. But I'm fail to install it... Is it becoz of the window 8 itself?

    2nd try, I skipped the step 1 but I enable the usb debugging on my phone & continue with the step 4, 5, 6,& 7... After I hit the download button, it seems like nothing happen. But after a while when I try to remove / eject my phone then there a pop up "problem ejecting USB composite device. windows can't stop your' lenovo composite ADB interface' device becoz a program is still using it. Close any program that might be using the device, ang then try again later"

    Now my phone still connected with my laptop... Pls help me bro

    1. You can continued the step but it won't effect to your device, the windows warning is because the storage still use by windows not mtk port. For installing driver in windows 8 0lease refer to this http://www.androidrookies.com/2014/06/lenovo-s650-flashing-newest-firmware.html

    2. Bro andy, tutorialnya suksess + berhasil... Trima kasih... Saya ada terbaca di forum yg lain. Katanya ROM yg ini bisa swap 3G untuk sim 1 & sim 2. Apa ia mustahil?

      http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/rom-a850-a850p-miui-v4-5-t2802835

      Apa pendapat anda tentang ROM yg ini

      Salam dari Malaysia

      Delete
    3. hi javis,
      i think it possible, but it just swap it means just only one SIM that can used 3G. So it same like any other ROM. unless that this ROM can both use 3G that it must be great. excellence this ROM is you can modified your ROM, from screen server until bootimage. In MIUI there is theme gallery that will make you easy to modified the ROM.beside that this just like another ROM.

  7. Andy!, great work mate, now i can finally enjoy my new A850+ in spanish :D. I'm having 1 issue though... I'm unable to switch time zone, whenever I try to do it Configuration app stops. Do you had this issue? is there a different way to change zones? Thanks in advance!

    1. thank you,
      actually you don't need to configure time zone, just select Automatic date & time in system setting. It will automatic adjust depend on your country, but it will take time to change maybe 1-2 hours. And thank you for visit

    1. Check GPS setting if turn off please turn it on. i think SIM card also give time zone just wait it will change without you know it. ok i will glad to hear news from you

  9. GPS was active, but no luck on that also. Then it came to me "I can't be the only one with this issue", and I really wasn't. There's an app called "TimeZone Changer" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.futurek.android.tzc&hl=es_419) that did the job nice and easy. Once again, thanks a lot for your help and I hope this can help others.

  15. Hello everyone,

    My girlfriend has a Lenovo A 850 cell phone.

    By mistake she pressed 2 buttons at the same time (she thinks it was the power button + volume button)

    Now all the text is in Chinese - written on a black background with a blue top part of the screen.

    How can she make a "hard" reset of the phone?

    We cannot really find anything in the Internet about that subject, only one website that mentioned, that we have to

    - Turn off phone
    - Press "power-button" and "volume-up"

    at the same time.

    But still everything is in Chinese

    Thx in advance for your comments
