Lenovo A6000 Lollipop To Kitkat Switcher

Hello Lenovo A6000 users, we have a very good news for you all who are on Lollipop and want to downgrade or revert back to Kitkat for any reason. Maybe Lollipop is running slow, lagging or any other problem and you want to get back to Kitkat 4.4.4 then you guys are going to get a boon. Rahulsnair a member of Xda forums and one of our Lenovo A6000 guru has brought a new formula to switch back to Kitkat without much hassles and without wasting time and bandwidth because he has created a very small flashing file which is just of 1 MB. Followed by this if you’re on KitKat and want to use any custom ROM based on lollipop then you do not have to flash any stock lollipop firmware which is 1 GB at least. This process of first upgrading your Lenovo a6000 to lollipop definitely takes a lot of time and you even have to cut down 1 GB of your monthly bandwidth. But if you already have any Lollipop based custom ROM like CM 12.1 or Flyme OS 5.1 then you can first flash the 1 MB file which you can call it as a “patch” and then the lollipop based custom ROM on your Lenovo a6000.

    Presently my Lenovo A6000 mobile is running on Latest Lollipop Build via OTA upgrade. It is still buggy and often behaves abnormally because of less amount of free RAM. Suggest me any fast Lollipop ROM which will run smoothly with 1 GB of RAM. Also, help me installing it.

    i dont know why you guys want to use any mods to install lolipop rom on you kitkat stock !! just download official s052 stock rom install it via stock recovery, its so simple !!
