Author adMember Info


Lenovo A396 Official S221

Plus :

+ Root

+ Changed the first boot picture to new official Lenovo logo


Install the Rom :

- download all files

- install the drivers

- run  the ResearchDownload.exe file

- load .pac file

- click on the play button

- Switch off the phone push the volume down button and connect to PC via factory USB cable

- the ResearchDownload recognize the phone, and start the rom flash

- some min later the ResearchDownload wrote "[Removed] Passed" If you see this, then the rom flash is ready

- remove the battery wait 5 sec and put back the battery. Switch on the phone

- ready



If you want to multilang rom with GAPPS, I shared the files for this. Install the multilang: 

- Have to delete all files on the phone in /system/preloadapp folder

- Also delete in /system/app folder the  :  LenovoPhoneCity_v2.0.14.140108.ff2fc49_all[rd-releasekey].apk (odex too), LenovoPhonemgr.apk (.odex too), LenovoStore_6.3.18.88.apk (odex too), LenovoSync_3.3.22.apk (odex too), PinyinIME.apk (odex too), SprdNote.apk (odex too), provision.apk (odex too) files 

- Delete in /system/media folder the shutdownsound and startupsound files 

- copy all of multilang GAPPS files to phone /system folder

- if the copy is ready then make a reboot and have to make a wipe data factory reset

You can do this all with Root Explorer, or Android Language Project (ALP)

      In my opinion (follow to the instructions written .pdf in chinese)

      *Better use windows XP 32bit

      *Then inside the "DriverPackage" x86 folder, Double click "dpinst.exe" ..just follow the rest instructions.

      p-s: i used windows 8.1 update 1_x64bit (no lucky with the driver as well), its like i have to install windows xp in order to work.

      flash again the rom and when you install the multilang, yoo have to set the premission on all files what you copy to phone. Just check an apk premission in /system/app folder, and set that simmilar premission on all files. It is important. You can copy these files in one way with Android Language Project(ALP)
