    yeah it is failing with supersu v2.67 & 2.68 i have tried with both CWM and TWRP recovery for 5-10 times……

  4. It seems that SuperSu is not working for many people, plz don’t flash SuperSu until you know how to recover from bootloop. We will update this soon.

    • I tried everything…
      Before rebooting to system twrp asks to root ur device but when i do so my mobile stucks while starting
      Showing Android
      Any solution please

  5. VIJAY INANI Reply

    Whoever able to root successfully, can they please confirm if the bootloader of their device was unlocked? I read in many posts that it needs an unlocked bootloader. I do not have bootloader unlocked. Have not tried yet as I have already bricked my device once.

  6. Pls can anyone tell how to root it with stock recovery as my phone wasn’t rooted before marshmallow update so i don’t have CWM or TWRP so how can i root then ??

  7. Found any solution for rooting the device, the above method does not work, decompressing ramdisk failed error.

  8. If you are not upgraded to 6.0 marshmallow then use kingoroot app and if updated then wait for the update of kingoroot.

  9. You can install custom recovery any time with sp flash tool
    download the stock rom
    go to firmware replace the recovery img file to cwm/twrp image
    now flash using sp flash tool……
    scatter load–>checkbox(ticks) only recovery—>go to options –>in general–>check DA Dl All checksum and go back then flash

  10. can u give the the link for stock recovery after marshmallo update.i want to change to stock recovery.please help.

    • just reset and your phone and it will be back to stock. no root no custom recovery.

    • Abhishek Rajput Reply

      It’s depends on can put it into either sdcard or internal storage.its work in both storage.

  28. Abhishek Rajput Reply

    First you have to install custom recovery like twrp or cwm.
    After boot into recovery mode and than choose boot image file install it and than install SuperSU zip.
    Lenovo k3 note has marshmallow so we need first install boot image and than super su.
    If you don’t install boot image than your mobile will get hanged whenever it start.

  29. In cwm recovery mode how to change language my language is other please help
