Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

UPDATE GUYS . 

 

Before i flash the India rom (still on CN) i opened Google maps to check on something . 

I actually found out that gps is not working.

I downloaded GPS Status and Tools to double check , i got no fix

 

But two days ago right after i flashed cn rom and installed google it was working on gmaps and other apps .

 

I think theres an app that causes the problem but i deleted everything and it still wont work.

 

We are back to square 1 . frustration is high.

 

I'll flash india rom hope for the best.

Hi, those in CN ROM, who have issues in notifications. The answer is untick all in Custom Restrictions. Apparently, lenovo hides this option. But you can access in >Settings, in search box (upper most), type, "Custom Restrictions". Please see photo attached.

 

(Havent tried this in "Tampered Global Rom")

 

Info: Official India Global ROM is available now see links in youtube. You can flash your Z6L to it. See youtube link below.

 

 

PROS:

 

1. Fully supported by lenovo as it is an official release.

 

2. Fixed most of the bugs including GPS

 

3. No chinese apps

 

CONS: (AS COMPARED TO CN ROM)

 

1. CN ROM has two updates now, india global rom has none for now.

 

2. No ZUI lab

 

3. No special motion features such opening of flashlight by two chop motions

 

Ill stay with CN ROM.

GPS Navigation is fixed.

Unwanted Chinese Apps can mostly be removed: tap icon til you see an "X", tap on X to remove.

Some Chinese remains, but now you get OTA Updates and most known bugs are fixed.

Enjoy, and thanks for all your help.

Lenovo Global Store has promised a GPS fix for the Global ROM "need a couple of days to test".   Will post if I get a response.


Lenovo Global Store has sent me the fixes for the GPS problem in the Global ROM. I dont know what to do with it. If you have the skill to use them here is the link.  One are instruction videos. The other has six .apk files. Please report your results.

Has anyone tested this?

 

Also how has everyone else's CN ROMs held up? I'm having GPS issues with global and plan to flash after work.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

Havent tried it since its not necessary. I stayed with CN ROM for quite some time now. Have not reflashed or twerk it or anything like that. So far, have no truble with CN ROM. Heres what I did after flashing to CN:

 

1. Install google play store .apk (see my previous post for instruction).

 

2. Delete/uninstall/disable all china apps and features (there are some that you cant since these are system apps).

 

3. Update (there are two)

 

4. Customize according to my preferences.

 

Since then, i have no trouble with my device. No gps, notification or whatever problem. You see, CN ROM is the optimized ROM.

 

See my previous post and replies for information.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

After you flash the Chinese Rom you have to install Google Play Service; I got mine here:

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

How exactly do you guys flash it?

 

I'm using QFIL and the ROM provided in the youtube link (picked the one for my model), then I:

 

1. Connect phone (powered off, holding volume up and down)

2. Select Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 as port

3. Progammer path set to where "prog_firehose_ddr.elf" is stored

4. Load XML set with RawProgram as "rawprogram0.xml" and Patch as "patch0.xml"

5. Download

 

But I keep getting 

Download Fail:Sahara Fail:QSaharaServer Fail:Process fail

 

Can anyone help?

Thanks for the reply!

 

But actually it turns out the issue was simply me forgetting to enable OEM unlocking...

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

Also, I know it is a CN ROM, but is there a quick way to get all of our apps and contacts back via our google account once we reinstall the basic google apps?

 

Whenever I install the play store apk I sign in with google and then I just get:

Error retrieving information from server. DF-DFERH-01

Does anyone know how to fix this issue? I've tried clearing cache, reinstalling, removing/readding google account, and changing date/time.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

It seems the CN ROM I downloaded from the link has google play services already installed by the manufacturer, but it is the Chinese version and thus blocks all the google apps from being used.

 

How did you guys bypass this?

Or how did your download not include it?

And we're back...
