Lenovo A6000/Plus CM 13 Marshmallow ROM 6.0 [UPDATED 18-12-15]

Yet another custom rom with the latest Android Operating System Marshmallow for Lenovo A6000 and Plus users. It is unnoffcial but it comprises the latest updates of Marshmallow and CM 13. The custom rom is still under beta phase testing and there might be lots of bugs and instability. We would advice you to flash this custom rom if you’re not using as the primary device. You can test the features of Marshmallow on your Lenovo A6000 but there might be errors or performance issues. The Lenovo A6000 CM 13 Marshmallow ROM is only 400 MB and it needs to be installed on a Lollipop based rom already with the TWRP custom recovery.

Techolite and its authors are not responsible for any damage which is incurred in the process of flashing custom roms or rooting the device.

    I have flash my Lenovo A6000 plus, But found no solution for No SIM error. hence downgrade from stock recovery.img I think Kitkat is awesome, and better than Lolli/Mars. I found only problem is Media Server ,and it will solve if you delete all mkv files. Nice colours in Kitkat, better than lollipop, I have used both OS but some aps did not working in lollipop, so why a buggy OS ?

  21. Shubham Rawat says

    I used MoKEE for about a month and later had to move back to stock KK due to performance issues. Actually, I’m a Modern Combat 4 addict. And it lags a lot on Custom ROMs even after using performance mode in kernel adiutor. I tried cm 12.1 By flourmo and even that cm 11 which you voted for the best custom rom for gaming, but nothing works as well as the stock KK. Even the antutu scores i tested are best for stock KK. So, I want to use L ROMs because of the good looking ui but cant comprimise with the performance. Can you suggest something to help me out of this…??
    Also the pics from camera are always grainy in custom ROMs.

  22. syed umair says

    in the navigation bar torch and some other tiles are not appearing
    properly please fix that
    also port kitkat stock camera for cm13 as it was ported for cm12.1

    There is problem with installing facebook or messenger, Not able to select protected apps after making the pattern, Not able to deactivate SIM in SIM card settings, Restarts automatically after call through second sim at times, Flashlight is not shown in notification drop down, Edit tiles dows not work , Battery consumption is very high by the Miscellaneous Android System find any way to reduce it.

    And a serious bug is, any theme on installation will crash the System UI and restoration is possible only after Factory data reset.

    Any ways the update is awesome with all other working features. RAM consumption and Internal Storage Consumption is ideal working smooth until we dont select any wrong option. Kindly make an perfect update for this. Thank you..:-)

  61. Kush Bajaj says

    Not working

    It just flashed in seconds… I don’t think that rom is installing correctly

  62. D technology says

    Can I flash from KK ?

    1. Techolaty says

      No, you will have to upgrade to Lollipop first.

  63. Mark Anthony says

    error executing updater binary in zip :( cannot install it

    1. Techolaty says

      This error is quite common.
      You need to wipe the whole system which includes cache/partition/dalvik/system. Just swipe them away and then install the rom. It’ll definitely get installed and you will get Marshmallow on your Lenovo A6000/Plus

  64. sarthak patil says

    everything went absolutely fine… but then when it comes to the setup screen where we have to select the language then the booting logo starts popping up again. please help

    1. Techolaty says

      That sounds strange my friend. Re-flash it once again Sarthak.

  65. Vikas Handa says

    Wow! works pretty well. Thanks techolaty and team
