First charge the phone battery to 100% ! (seriously u can't replace the battery or charge in another way)

BEFORE UPGRADE S60-a 4.4.4 or S60-w:
Do the root with kingroot. After root do the backup all partitions with Partitions Backup & Restore and keep it in safe place:

Vol- + connect USB on turned off phone = Diag Mode
Vol+ + Vol- + Power Button = Lenovo Recovery (there is an option to turn off phone), this is the simplest way to turn off the phone:
hold Vol- and Vol+, hold Power and wait for reset. Chose english > Turn off


Flashing  S60-W with this rom:
After flash your phone could switch to Marshall London HS-USB Diagnostics 9006 in this mode first do the backup all partitions with EMMC RAW TOOL. Then you can flash with MiFlash or write partitons with emmc but first read instructions:

Updated from version:


This ROM will wipe all userdata! Except external SD Card.
If phone after flash won't boot up and only long vibrating long hold: VOL- and POWER BUTTON (30-120seconds). Phone should restart.It happens when you will flash from other versions loader (for example 5.0.2 -> 4.4.4 or 4.4.4 -> 5.0.2). Why? Because old loaders is running and you have flashed the new one so you have to restart the phone but u can't remove the battery and u have to long press PWR Button.

Warning 1:
If something went wrong and phone is long vibrating and windows see Qualcom MMC (a lot of drives) u can repair it by flashing emmc with MiFlash and then HOLd VOL- and power Button and plugin USB Cable.
