I had asked this question... My Previous Question

Good News is that somehow I am able to put my tab in recovery mode. I wanted to install the stock lollipop version of Android in it and after doing some research I found this link...Link to Lenovo Website But I am unable to understand that how can I put this in my device. So my question is can any of you provide me guidance on how to install this on my device or atleast can provide me a link to a flashable stock ROM. Any help would be appreciated

Edit: Okay, So I finally got it up and running, but I have a small problem that I can't enter it's recovery mode through the previously correct key combination. It just shows Lenovo's splash screen. I can however use:

adb reboot recovery

Can Anybody help me with this please?

  • The link you found is the source code (for developers), not a ROM.

Reading from your previous question, the model is Lenovo tab 2 A7-10which has a Mediatek chipset (Mediatek MT8127). So you need SP Flashtool and the firmware with a scatter file to be able to flash your device.

  1. SP Flashtool (Download and unzip then run it)
  2. Stock firmware or Mirror - password: lenovo-forums.ru (Download and unzip)
  3. MTK VCOM, CDC Drivers or Mirror (Download and install)

Install the drivers for the computer to be able to detect the device. Power down your device. If you can't, just force shut it down (Keep pressing Power button + volume down button for a couple of seconds).

On SP Flashtool, click on Scatter-Loading: Browse to the folder where you unzipped the firmware, you'll find a text file similar to this: MTXXXX_Android_scatter.txt. select it.

You'll be back in the SP Flashtool interface, uncheck the first field (Preloader) and leave the other checked.

Click on Download (green arrow) and wait the software do its things. You should get a big green checkmark if everything goes fine.

Please comment with any errors occurred. I'll update my answer with new elements.

  • BTW why do I have do uncheck Preloader? Can't I just install a new Preloader?

  • It is not recommended to flash the preloader because even if the flash file is correct, the preloader may be different. flashing a wrong preloader simply kills your phone.

  • Should be simply with Volume up + Power button

  • Actually, This vol+, Power combination lands me into the same test menu I mentioned in my previous question

  • Well, holding volume up + volume down + power should take you to recovery menu, weird this doesn't work, or may be on of your​ volume buttons is broken?... adb reboot recovery should work if you enable USB debugging from the developer menu

You can try the following method. This is the convectional way of installing/upgrading firmware on most android devices:

  • Download official firmware (correct version) preferably on PC. Extract the download you should see a sdfuse folder

Depending on contents of the compressed file you may not find the sdfuse folder, in this case;

  • create a folder in your external sdcard and rename it as sdfuse

  • extract firmware zip and copy qsb firmware "the file vit extension .qsb" to sdfuse folder or it may have the .inb extension.

    • You will need to transfer sdfuse folder preferably using a micro sd card Adapter or card reader from the PC to the phone.

    • Make sure phone is off completely. Then press and HOLD the POWER+VOLUME DOWN buttons simultaneously until the service menu appears.

    • Using your Vol+/Vol- buttons navigate to sd update and the installation should begin. Follow the instructions carefully to successfully re-install the firmware.

(Your phone must have at least 50-80% of battery charged )
