  1. Is there any possibility for installing lollipop on Lenovo s580?

    1. Hi,
      Still there is no news about lollipop on Lenovo S580

    2. Hi
      I did what you said exactly it did come up with the Russian words and samples then the phone is stuck on the lenovo logo and i don't know if i should disconnect it or what??

    3. if after installing custom recovery and your phone stuck then the recovery is not for your phone, try to restore to standard recovery again, if you dont have standard recovery file then find on this guide, when flashing just flash or just check the recovery only.

  2. when i flash the TWRP its hanging and not restart

    1. Try do normal boot, if still cannot do reflashing recovery again.

  3. really thanks for ur respond
    i need to inform u as i made double check and re-flashed again and we when i re-flashed through the CMD it says finished but the phone when it made the restart it's stopped on the Lenovo logo and do nothing so after while i removed the usb i got error on the CMD told me ( failed many links)
    and the phone still on the Lenovo screen so i made the turn off and on again and when i try to install supersu and update it appear failed to update
    so i really appreciated to help me if i miss something or not :)

    1. can you tell me what is your phone detail, look like the custom recovery is not fit with your device or firmaware. so tr look at about phone and tell me the firmware version and the device.
      to fix your device you need to install standard recovery back to your device, follow this but when check the firmware remove all check list and just check recovery only

    2. sorry for late reply
      Model : S580
      Android : 4.4.2
      Kernal : 3.4.0

    3. I think it because your firmware,try update first then install the custom recovery again.

  4. sir, how can i restore my stock rom. when i flash the twrp my phone got boot loop. pls. help me. Build : S580_S211

    1. follow this guide, it will restore all your firmware to stock

    2. Any issues with already rooted devices. My S580 is rooted. So same process as above or i need something diferent?

    3. rooted device is more easy, try using mobileuncle and the flash recovery from there. no need to use flash tool.
