I hope someone can help me. I have a LTE enabled Lenovo Tablet 2 1050L which I attempted to root using the instructions given here ... https://forum.xda-developers.com/thi...let-2-t3251571 ... but I have managed to brick my device. I successfully installed SuperSU but then read that Magisk was better and tried the same procedure with that but it didn't work. Now when the tablet starts up, I get a message which says ... "EFILINUX ERROR [android_image_start_buffer:737] boot image digital signature verification failed : 0000001A" which appears over the initial Lenovo splash screen. I then get to the Android system recovery menu but I can't get the table any further than this. I have tried wiping data / factory resetting but this does not work.

I can boot the tablet into recovery mode using CWM or TWRP but I have no idea what to do now. I guess I shouldn't have messed. I hope someone can help.

Kind regards

    Check for instructions how to restore the original boot image. That is what Magisk replaced after creating a backup. Raw approach: find that image file, then use Fastboot to flash it back. I've never done that, so I cannot give detailed instructions (hence a comment only).

  • I've booted back into CWM and TWRP and there are no backups to restore. Does it matter that, following instructions from elsewhere, I wiped the 'data' and 'cache' partitions?

  • I didn't tell you there were any backups in the recovery. Magisk creates a backup and places it in its own folder. That's why I wrote "check for instructions". And yes, if you wiped data, that backup is gone. Which leaves you with finding an image of your original boot partition.

  • OK - thanks for your help. Can I download a stock ROM and extract boot.img, say from here?

  • Can't tell, I don't have that device. Btw: If your Lenovo tablet is MTK based, Flashtool (cross-platform) could be helpful as well. I've used that in the past to perform a full backup on another Lenovo tablet before I started playing with root etc. A real life saver, as that gave me the chance to restore all partitions after a similar issue. Might not help now (as you didn't use it to backup before), but might come in handy in the future ;) Good luck!
