For every android geek who wishes to enjoy the features of custom ROM, we have a custom recovery. Custom recovery not only helps to flash different customs but also you can flash any kind of zip files. Sometimes while performing any type of external installation, our data get lost and there are some chances for your phone to get dead. To avoid these issues, we can make a use of this custom recovery to backup all the data present in the ROM. By default, Lenovo devices come with stock recovery which has very less features and you cannot flash the custom ROM through this stock recovery. In this tutorial, you will learn a simple method to flash custom recovery TWRP on your Lenovo k4 note.
I sincerely thank Gursewak, Sevenmars and other developers for providing this recovery.

          1. not working on android 6.0/marshmallow, until now no exploit found so apk file rooting like kingroot won't work.
            the only way is to flash the recovery rom using odin, then root it in recovery mode.

          2. after selecting the image file on rashr the phone restart, there's error when booting up, I tried again importing image on rashr, phone suddenly turn off and wont turn on again…please help…

          3. Android 6.0{lenovo k4 note} is rooted by a special method apps like kingroot cant root you phone… you will have to root it by pc..
