btw, when you are done, you can download google play store from the lenovo appstore
found this video very useful to see the original rom in work, and the difference to the socalled global rom

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?

-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

Lenovo Z6 Pro ZUI_11.0.575 stable version:
This update mainly optimizes the experience and improves system stability. System optimization repairs the occasional automatic timing error; optimizes the camera stability and camera effects; optimizes the occasional double-click screen to not brighten the screen; optimizes the U-touch side sliding insensitive problem; repairs the occasional missed call status display error Problem;Fixing fast motion when shooting a video and the specific scene cannot focus.
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.
