    • Trust me, I have tried multiple times but handset refuses to boot in recovery mode. Guys I think we have to wait for few months before Lenovo officially roll out Marshmallow in India for K4 Note. I have downloaded the custom ROM and saved it in my SD card, renamed it but all in vain. After switching off and then Power+volume up+volume down it simply doesn’t work.

    Handset refuses to boot in recovery mode. Probably handset needs custom recovery. Which means handset needs to be rooted. This will void the warranty.

    • It works fine
      First switch off your phone and then, press Power Button+Volume Up+Volume Down

      • Hey Sumit, I tried multiple times. Offcourse I had switched off my handset then while restarting I hold and press all the keys together as advised. Still not working

So when I go to check my storage details after touching d internal storage total of app, images, videos etc amounts to around 5.27 GB. Now when I goto file manager-internal storage and select all and find out properties from 3 little dots it shows only 2.18 GB.
    So my question is:
    1. System setting says 7.99 GB is used but when I check it n add all it amounts ot only 5.27 GB. Where did my 2.72 GB go?
    2. File manager is telling me other wise.
    3. How do I get the function of storage of lollipop? I liked it better. “Set primary storage” option.

        • Your phone is rooted that’s why it’s not working. It only work on stock devices. Better to flash stock lollipop firmware before flashing the update
