I tried Kingo Root and Root Genius and some other software but finally failed to root this phone. My phone is Lenovo A1000.

  • For users who flagged this as "Unclear what you're asking": assume Android 5.0 if OP doesn't clarify since I don't think Lenovo pushed any update beyond that version.

To root a Lenovo A1000 smartphone (Android 5.0), go to kingroot.net and follow their directions to download, install, and run KingRoot. I downloaded the Android .apk to my Linux laptop and copied it to the phone via adb, but I'm sure downloading directly to the phone (they provide a QR code) would also work.

By the way, add SuperSU to the list of ones that do not work on this phone.
