    1. hi,
      no different just you will able to move or delete something from your /system folder, If you use link2sd you will able to move app to sd and it need root. but i think android 4.4.2 already have move to sd function on default.
      the risk if you failed is your device become bootloop and only can be fix using reflashing, but you can use adb to push stock recovery.img if you know about adb

    1. hello,
      sorry for long reply, the worst using this method is your device get brick after flashing custom recovery, but if you know how to restore it with Lenovo Standard Recovery than you don;t need anything to be fear.
      if not rooted then nothing happen. because it installing kinguser on your /system and su binary on /system/xbin. if both not work then nothing happen because it not change or delete any system file.

    1. Hi,
      Backup your lenovo standard recovery or you can re flash rom again but just check the recovery image only if you wanna restore. But if you don't have backup rom the re flash official ROM will bring back all, refer to guide http ://bit.ly/U52UEZ
