    Any idea how I could create a backup of the stock recovery before rooting? Also, how would I go about reversing the process and unroot the phone if need be (for warranty claims)?

  2. Pratidhwani Srivastava says

    I tried following all steps but it does not seems to be working. After clicking on Download button no red stripe appears, my phone in turned off state starts charging by the USB cable. I confirm that I have drivers installed as I am able to see my device when I do adb devices in cmd. Please suggest,how can i proceed.

    1. Vivek Goel says

      You need proper drivers on your PC. Unistall all existing adb and fasboot drivers… restart your PC and install Lenovo PC Suite… and then your phone will be recognized…
