    Hello Sir, Thanks for the guide. Although I’ve found myself in a bit deeper trouble than this.
    I tried to install a custom rom using CWM recovery, and it’s bricked now. :/
    The problem is, I can’t even enter the fastboot mode with the Vol Down + Power Button, nothing is showing up. Please advise?

    • Is the device responding while charging? Can you see the battery charging icon?

      • Virat Rafiki Saluja

        Hey, I’ve partially figured it out. I used TWRP this time. The recovery mode does gets started, but the screen isn’t displaying it. Since TWRP is touch enabled, I get the vibration that it makes when we select an option, but then again the screen isn’t displaying anything.

    Finally I flash by manual update software for A6K+ Lollipop (Android 5.0.2: Kraft-A6000-s_S030_151030_WCAF) with stock recovery. Hence My Internal Memory still has an issue, only 4-5 GB although the RAM back to normal 2G. Please Dev, help me solve my Internal memory problem decresed. Sorry for my bad English

  • Taarak Ahuja

    sir I am very concerned about my phone tried many ways to repair it but now I am seeking help from you. The problem is following:-
    my Lenovo a6000 is not functioning properly after I flashed cm12 on my device
    Steps I followed:-
    I booted into my custom recovery cwm and cleared data of the current stock rom and then cleared the cache partition. Then, I went to install zip and installed cm12
    It flashed properly and I booted in it correctly, everything was working great just that now I had TWRP recovery instead of cwm.
    I don’t how the data of my previous rom was not cleared properly and instead of having 4.5gb of free storage I was having only 2gb of storage(my old data was of nearly 2.5gb).
    so I decided to revert and booted into my recovery and was stuck in bootloop
    Now my devices recovery is lost, bootloader is locked, I cannot boot into fastboot mode and rom is totally working but not correctly. Now I want to flash my backup and don’t know what to do as having no QUALCOMM specific flash tools to unbrick
    All features in the rom like usb debugging are working if they could help
    PLEASE respond to my problem and tell me a way out??
    looking forward for your reply

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      You can try unbricking by using Mi Flash tool:

      Install Mi flash tool & launch it
      Star Flashing using MI-Flash :

      • turn off phone
      • hit VOL + and plug USB cable (phone will vibrate once)
      • In Device Manager (Control Panel) should shows : Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008
      • run Miflash, you should see appropriate COM port
      • browse folder with downloaded firmware
      • Click button ‘flash’ and wait

    hi dev, I just want to know the exact flash procedure of only A6000 plus. I know you have mentioned above but its bit confusing for me, so please tell me the procedure I’m waiting

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Follow everything as mentioned for A6000. Once the stock ROM is installed. You’ll also get stock recovery installed with it. Boot into stock recovery & Goto “Install zip from SDcard”, select A6000Plus zip file. Wait for the flashing process to complete. That’s it! 🙂

        • Devs-Lab Staff

          First of all Fastboot mode & download mode are two different modes. You might have tried flashing ROM in fastboot mode. I have mentioned the procedure to get in download mode. If you can’t get in download mode, you can get in fastboot mode & flash recovery (For installing recovery refer: Install recovery). Once the recovery is installed, you can directly install the Lollipop firmware.

Also can’t access recovery

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      If you are still able to see the logo means your device can be fixed. Just boot into fastboot mode. Flash recovery & Install Lenovo’s Stock rom.

      • Dominique Vias

        Hi when I reboot to fastboot mode, ADB cannot recognize the device. NO devices found. My problem now is when installing adb drivers, the ADB installer doesnt recognize any connected device. 🙁

        • Devs-Lab Staff

          Install this USB driver: lenovo a6000 drivers

          • Dominique B Vias

            I am so sorry to pester you with this 🙁 but the driver didn’t work after installation. My pc still doesn’t recognize my phone nor does ADB. 🙁 The only time ADB tool recognized my phone was on a rare occasion that my phone booted up and the internal storage popped. There was Lenovo PC suite and driver application which I proceeded to install. I was able to install the recovery img and the ROM at the time but that’s when the problem of the phone turning off and not doing anything more happened… Also I don’t think the Stock rom is suited for my phone. My Lenovo A6000 version is a single sim unit. Help 🙁

            • Devs-Lab Staff

              Just to check whether your device is completely dead, connect your device to your PC & check in device manager. Whether any new device pop’s up! If it does, remove battery, connect your device & flash the ROM. I think you’ll find stock ROM for single sim device on Lenovo’s Official site or some other forums.

    Urgent reply please when i was flashing my lenovo a6000
    I think cablenwas shaked after that u tried to open the device its not turning on i again flash butt flash dosn complete i cause me to wait alot … butt no solution please help me

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      If you can boot in Fastboot, flash custom recovery & Install any custom ROM. If none of the solutions work, your device is completely bricked.

  • Goran

    Hello friend.
    Flashed some custom rom on A6000, and it hard bricked the phone.
    It is my friends phone, and now I feel awful about it.
    Phone is not showing nothing on the screen, not with all possible button combinations pressed.

    What do you propose, is there any solution?

    I will try to charge it for 2h, and then to press volume up, power and middle touchscreen icon (home button).

    Custom rom was flashed using TWRP, and before I flashed the rom, i did a full backup on SD card.
    But now, I cant go into recovery, so…damn.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      If none of the button combinations boot your device. It’s probably hard bricked & can’t be repaired. Try your luck in Lenovo’s service centre.

  • Arief Seto

      Yes, you can flash custom ROM through TWRP recovery. 😉

      sir have you fix your phone now cause im having a same problem plss reply

      • Devs-Lab Staff

        Yup, I fixed my device 3 times; following this procedure. You might be doing something differently, if it gets stucked at particular point, are you able to boot your device into recovery mode after completing this procedure? If yes then flash custom recovery & flash any custom rom. On which device you are trying this, A6000 or A6000 Plus?

        • kenneth

          i been doing all the procedure but when i start download thing it goes on and on and never been done… what should i do to fix it any suggestions

          • Devs-Lab Staff

            This is really weird! Below are few solutions that might help you:
            1. Try on other Desktop PC.
            2. Use Original USB Cable. Clear all drivers & Install the drivers all again.
            3. Use other Lenovo Flash tool.
            Hope this helps!

  • K.Harish

  • dani

    I can’t go to recovery / fast boot what should I do??

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      You don’t need to go to Recovery/Fastboot mode. Press & hold Volup+Power button+Home. Release the button after 3 secs of vibration. This will boot your device into download mode. If you have flashed any custom ROM, you won’t be able to boot into Download mode. Flash custom recovery by this method Install TWRP in Lenovo A6000/Plus. & flash stock rom through recovery.

      • kenneth

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      This can’t be possible. You might have done without differently. Can you go into recovery? Fastboot? If yes, then flash TWRP recovery & flash any custom rom. If the device is completely dead then, try the above process without battery.

  • Chandu

    7. Click on the Start/Play button. Wait for the process to complete. Please don’t shake or unplug the USB cable during the process as it would permanently damage your device.

    I followed the method for flashing the phone exactly suggested. but the flashing is stuck and the timer is at 4348 s.
    What should I do? Its taking very long as compared to the suggestion.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      The time completely depends on your PC specs. However, it should not take more than 700s. Try flashing the ROM again or use different PC.

  • vincent
