Lenovo series/Branded androids phone: When updating new OS update. Backup necessary data on sd card/computer, factory reset the phone. Without logging any google/windows accounts or installing any app/software, turnoff and turn on two times, start updating the phone, try to keep sims off-line while downloading upgrade firmware, on hispeed wifi or 3/4G internet. And installed the update, make a reset on updated phone again and turnoff and on phone twice with the same procedures. This will keep safe the update and doesnot break the android/windows files while downloading/installation time. Downgrade to KiTKAT will effect the touch sensor and will make it hard, just go to Lenovo Sales/service center and make it on KITKAT, then follow the same procedures as i mentioned above. It works, i had the same issue but resolved now. I am only facing Camera resolution issue and waiting for the 3rd built of Lenovo A5000 Contact Hammad@ 03055609229

Holly09, 17 Oct 2015Do you find a way to go back to the previous version. I updated my phone and I really don't like it.No, the lenovo said they don't do downgrade and the warranty is only for hardware. So i'll just wait for further update of the Lollipop cuz changes might happen and they will make it stable hopefully
Holly09, 17 Oct 2015Do you find a way to go back to the previous version. I updated my phone and I really don't like it.As far as I know since the frimware was already updated no way to return back to a previous kitkat version unless you go to an authorized Lenovo repair center, probably they will change the mainboad and the touch. Make sure your phone is under warrently otherwise you will pay for spare parts and its already expensive.

After upgrading to Lollipop the main camera became 6 megapixels from 8 megapixels, and the front from 2 megapixels to 1 mega pixels, plus the APN did not work at all, cannot be connected to the internet through data sim. Those who want to buy this phone beware of upgrading it, much better to keep the original kitkat version.

nate, 15 Oct 2015where did u learn this steps? and did it work for u?.. what r the new options in lolipop? thanksI learned these steps from my previous trials with HTC upgrading and should works perfectly for any type of android phones and updates if you follow the steps correctly (I did with many phones brands including Lenovo phones and all updating to Lollipop went OK).
Android Lollipop Rom A5000_S123_150929_8g_ROW (5.02) is perfectly and smoothly work with Lenovo a5000 (although some issues like battery drain and Ram usage commonly exist in android) but so many third party apps could resolve such of issues like Clean Master I already used which make my Lollipop a5000 phone better than any android phones around.
Finally such of ROM is the best than previous one.
