I am trying to root my Lenovo B A2016a40 but I absolutely cannot find a working method. I have tried several apps (desktop and android) such as KingoRoot, Framaroot and so on, but nothing has worked so far.

Here are some specs of my phone as a screenshot:


I have found this way: (https://www.kingoapp.com/root-tutorials/how-to-root-android-6.0-marshmallow.htm) but I am not sure if this can be applied to my phone or not and I am scared to brick it.

Can anyone help? Thanks a lot!

  • Look here (translation using Google works fine): lenovo-forums.ru/topic/… Please note that there are different builds (and the link only works for an early build).

  • @Bob Ah right I had come across that forum post before, but unfortunately it's in Russian and I don't speak any Russian, so I did not want to do something on a Google Translation. Besides, how would I know whether that would work for my phone, with my firmware and stuff? If there is someone who figured out how to root it, why can none of the Kingoroot, Framaroot or whatever-root-apps do it also and make sure it would work before I brick my phone? Long story short, I didn't dare to do it.

I am recommending you to use kingo-root application because this app are very great for rooting devices and it won't put your device in brick if this app failed during root it automatically close itself and notified you. Final is your decision and you are responsible for your work!!

Have a great day!!!!!!

  • Yeah i keep trying KingoRoot but according to the site it doesn't support Marshmallow (yet). I have good experiences with KingoRoot, because I rooted my wife's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with it. I just wonder, how come until now none of those rooting apps support Marshmallow. Or is it something phone specific? I mean if it's personal towards my Lenovo B?
