    I have a Lenovo A6000-1 . It took me a lot of time to figure out that it’s a different phone than A6000 or A6000 plus.
    Still when I try the update with any of those both roms i Get the Status 7: something like: “Your rom is A6000, and your phone is an A6000-1”
    Do you know any fix to this? I am afraid of rooting. I found a guy crying cause he did this and the updated failed and now he cant find the original stock for this 1 sim version of the phone

  28. Satyajit Korlam says

    I have tried your method, n successful. But unable to install system updates, I got 138 mb of Stability update over Lollipop. I have downloaded but after flashing it, it is the same old Lollipop version. Can you please solved this issue in my cell, It is now not rooted.

    Can you also told me, when we download update using system update, where is the that update saved in phone. Since I ave wasted my 140 mb of 3g Data.

    1. techolite says

      Internal Storage > lenovoota

      Make sure you do not click the install now after the download completes. Copy it on your SD Card quickly as soon as it gets downloaded.
