Hello Abhi


Generally Rooting the phone does not stops OTA updates from happening. It seems that there is Some problem with the Root zip you are flashing.

If there would be a Good working Root File available on XDA etc then you can go for it. Then Even the system updates should happen smoothly.


This is just a theory I am putting here. We will come to know the difficulties in doing this only when we will go for it.

So far K4 note is only be able to rooted via Kingroot, and it has some problems with OTA.

It only happening with Lenovo. So far no good rooting solution available and it breaks the OTAs

There is only one problem. With each update, battery drains more 10-15%. S152 has almost double battery drain than S147

Hello Friends,

I have somewhat different observation. S152 has given some good performance improvement as well as battery backup. I always use wifi & no data connection like 2G 3G 4G etc, this could be the reason of Good Battery Backup plus I have disabled background apps because of which It may be consuming less power.

As of now No Custom ROMs are available for this Model. As per my View it is meaningless to Flash Custom ROM of Same Version. So better to use the Current Version From Lenovo get some good updates and make your phone stable.

Once the Lenovo Will stop providing updates we may think of Custom ROMs of Android M.

It is difficult to say if the Custom ROMs would be availble if the Source code.. binaries are not available.

And guys for people facing ota updates issue... (24% then ota failed to install) the only solution is flash stock ROM...

I had the same problem I rooted my phone using kingroot and later unrooted it , but I wasn't able to flash ota updates since. Tried everything but only option that worker was flashing stock ROM

It also gave me back warranty and ability to get ota updates...

So for those who are struggling for updates ... Go for the stock ROM ....
