Re: HELP! Lenovo Z6 Pro, a scam? Benchmark results down the drain.

Hello Chaina,

Thank you so much for you detailed information on this. Could you let me know where you managed to get your Chinese / English ROM from? Also please add a small installation note on how you overwrote your Global rom to Chinese / English. I run my phone in English anyways so I would be more than happy to test this out and finally receive good benchmarks and great performance.
I'm fairly experienced in phone customization; rooting, flashing, etc so I'm definitely not asking for a tutorial but some guidelines in the right direction would be amazing.

Thank you so much, this gives me a lot of hope.

Best regards,

Kian

and here:

 

https://club.lenovo.com.cn/thread-5557546-1-1.html

 

(if your chinese is a bit rusty,....google translate is very useful Smiley Wink )....you should be able to log in there with your existing lenovo account to view and post there to get download access) btw i can speak a bit of chinese, and i did not find anything about a global rom in the official lenovo z6 forums....)

 

google for:  mirrors      lolinet    com      firmware    lenovo

Re: HELP! Lenovo Z6 Pro, a scam? Benchmark results down the drain.

Hi Chaina, thanks for all the info. I'm also tempted to try the Chinese ROM because the "Global" one is laggy and lacks features. But the Chinese ROM also has things I don't like:

 

1. How many bloatware (Chinese apps) are installed? Can you uninstall them?

2. I read on these forums that app notifications don't work properly. Do you receive notifications from Whatsapp, Facebook, Messenger, Instagram etc?

 

Thanks

Chaina

Re: HELP! Lenovo Z6 Pro, a scam? Benchmark results down the drain.

-not many, you get asked at the beginning if you want to install several apps...(QQchat, Wechat, WeiBo, etc) you can uninstall all bloatware apps and you even can uninstall some of the ZUI apps (Calender,Calculator, etc).

-so far i get notifications...on locked screen and on widgets and even home screen...(but did not test this completely...there are so many settings...

-actually you also can log in with your lenovo account when you want to use the main account of the phone

-some ZUI apps are really nice: U Health, Security...

-the lenovo APP Store is more up to date than google play store...you receive newer versions of some apps

Re: HELP! Lenovo Z6 Pro, a scam? Benchmark results down the drain.

Ok so I decided to give this a shot. I'm preparing everything right now. I will also document it for future purposes. I'm looking into pulling my stock firmware from my phone so that I can flash this one over the CH ROM whenever I feel like going back. Could come in handy when I need a warranty or something. I'll keep you guys posted on the process and will create a tutorial as soon as I managed to get my CH ROM working accordingly. Speak soon!

Best regards,

Kian

Good luck with it, you easily should do it, if you encounter any problems i will try to help. Really good idea to backup the global ROM. Smiley Wink
