    Hello,
    While I am installing games(mc4,asphlat etc) I got this error – the package duplication permission null
    I read your article. But my doubt is that can I play these games in my lenovo a7000 without rooting my phone. Any solutions??
    Thanks

    1. AJ says

      Hello Sreenath,

      Me too have the same problem…but I know one thing for sure…you phone should be rooted for playing these games…
      (correct me If I’m wrong)…yet to find solution for this package duplication permission null thing…you said ‘you read article’…may I know which one?

      1. sreenath says

        I meant this article.
        Are you sure , that is rooting necessary for playing this game. why this happens so? My friends with low specifications devices are able to play this game [without any rooting].

        1. AJ says

          okie…yep you are right…game can be played without rooting too but rooting offers some cheats..

          1. sreenath says

            But I can’t install these games in my lenovo a7000 ( not rooted)
            Any solutions for the error ‘ package duplication…. Null error ‘
            Help me

    2. Ashok Kumar Varma says

      Asphalt and mc4 games can be installed in Lenovo a7000 irrespective of root… i think you are trying to install modded apk’s… try to download from store.. Hope this helps .. Thank you!!

      1. sreenath says

        Yes, you are right Ashok.

        Also, when I am trying yo root my lenovo a7000 (by above article) my phone not recognizing.
        Me also tried aj’s method in windows 8. But nothing happened. Is windows 7 must needed for rooting my lenovo a7000
        Thanks

        1. Ashok Kumar Varma says

          Same as Aj’s method… but follow the installion of vcom drives from the following link http://thebroodle.com/microsoft/windows/install-mediatek-mt65xx-usb-vcom-drivers-windows-8-8-1/
          It wont recognize the first time try 2-3 times …
          Sorry for late reply
          Thanks!!!

        2. Sarthak Vinchurkar says

          I tried to install spider man, assassin’s creed, modern combat, asphalt from my SD card ( I have their apk files). But while installing they are giving error that “App not installed. App duplicate permission null”. I am very irritated of this error! Plz tell me that will they install normally just after rooting?? Or do I need to install CM 12 also?? And will they surely install after this??

  15. Ashok Kumar Varma says

    Is it Working????

    1. Admin says

      It is working, you have to follow the instructions carefully. If you still have some problem then you can search for rooting Lenovo A7000 on xda forums. Thanks

      1. Ashok Kumar Varma says

        Should i follow yours guide… or AJ’s Guide ??

        1. Admin says

          Follow Aj’s method, his method is quite easy and convenient.

          1. Ashok Kumar Varma says
