Does anybody know how to downgrade from Kitkat to Jellybean ? or is there some official stock firmware which we can download and flash on our phone cuz I am facing various issues after the update .....

vicky, 25 May 2015It fell down two times and both SIM CARD is not working...plz help me.......... Vicky,try removing both your sim cards and inserting them back again. It may not work at once, keep trying for a day atleast,patience is important. If it still doesnt work you'l have to take it to the service center coz dropping your phone may cause internal damage to your phone.

Hey guys,ive posted earlier on this site and after a lot of experimentation for the past 8 months,ive come to certain conclusions about the Lenovo S660.I will also post some tricks i figured out that will surely help.Furthermore,it will also save you a trip to the service center if your problem is minimal.
First off,the specs : Dont expect a lot from this phone when you buy it,coz lets face it,even though it has 1gb RAM and runs on a 1.3gHz quadcore processor,the chipset is not snapdragon,which is a pity. The rear cam is quite good with 8mp cam capable of HD video recording as well. To get the best pics out of your cam,you need to know a trick.
*****In your cam settings,theres an option called ISO which shows figures like--Auto-100-200-400-800-1600. So what you must know is that,when the the light in the background is less you should set the ISO to a higher figure say 800 or 1600,when the light is more,you use a smaller figure. Thats a way i found out to get good pics.*****
Alright,next up is the update to kitkat. Trust me,when you get your phone,the battery life is going to be terrible therefore an update is compulsory. If problems as mentioned above occur,its due to a poor network connection. It is important that you properly update or you will have to go the service center to get your phone repaired. Its safe to update now as no new updates have been launched by lenovo so far. So once the update is completed,you need to check for these stuff:
2)Go to--about phone--version infos
3)Android version should be 4.4.2
4)Baseband version should be S660.V62
5)Build number should be S660_ROW_S062
Thos things will prove that you have succesfully updated your phone. Now perform this trick to help you perform another trick in the future. In version infos keep tapping at "Build Number" until it shows :You are now a developer". Now leave this,il tell you what to do after some time. Now in order to update your phone properly,either use a 3g connection or a wifi(only if net is consistent and does not break off). I used 3g and it went well. Keypoint is your net should not get cut off at any cost.
So after update,some good things you'll get are :
The true power of a 3000Mah battery which will help you last out a day easily even while using facebook and whatsapp on 3g,a better interface than jellybean,a better dialer screen and an app called "one key lock" which when combined with lenovo's gesture feature, helps you to lock your phone without using the lock button.
Now remember what i said about tapping the biul number option?If not scroll up read again. Now once you see "You are a developer" a new option opens up in your settings called "Developer Options". Open that and theres an option called "Select runtime" and in that by default it will be given as "Use dalvik". There will be another option called "Use ART". ART is another experimental runtime installed by google. When you select that,you will have to restart your phone and when it starts it will "Android is upgrading". Let it finish. So the good thing about using ART is that your phone's battery life improves again and take lesser time to charge as well. Thats what i could know,i just started using it yesterday so basically im still experimenting. From what i got from the net,there are chances of some apps crashing,however none of them have crashed for me yet. I'll give my list of apps at the end.
*****IMPORTANT SECTION****COMMON PROBLEMS FACED*****
(A)If your phone is acting weird like---too much data being used---apps crashing---camera not working properly--basically any problem that occurs with apps
SOLUTION : reset your phone
HOW TO DO IT -- Go to settings--take backup and reset--take factory data reset--complete. Make sure your sd card and sim cards are removed or else numbers will be lost from your sim cards as well as the data from your sd card. Dont worry restting your phone wont downgrade it back to jelly bean.
(B)Commonest problem--FORGETTING YOUR LOCK PASSWORD
Don't worry you dont have to worry about going to the service center. All you need to do is reset your phone. Well how do you reset your phone if you cant unlock it?
Here's how :
1)switch off your phone
2)press VOLUME KEY UP and LOCK BUTTON till an option appears with:
3)Use your buttons to get to recovery and select it.
4)Your phone will start and an android pic will open showing "NO COMMAND"
5)Press your lock button and another options menu will appear.
6)Select wipe data/factory reset option
7)Then select reboot system and voila your phones is back to normal,you will lose all the data ofcourse. Make sure that your sim cards and sd card is removed. And next time don't forget your password(I did and now im scared of putting a lock,lol ).
(C)Sometimes your phone may start and play that lenovo restarting clip over and over again instead of switching on. Use the above mentioned step to reset,which is the only option.
(D)In the resetting options menu, theres an option called "wipe cache partition". Select that to clear all cache from your phone. Do it once a week to keep your phone working normally without lags.
These are the problems that ive face with my lenovo for the past 8 months and believe me i got so fed up with going to the service center i sat up an entire night finding solutions for them. Now i dont have to go anywhere.
Those interested in rooting your phone,heres a reminder,once you update to kitkat it becomes a huge trouble to root and chance of bricking is higher. When its jellybean its easy to root with SUperSU app and chance of bricking is less and all you need to do is download custom ROM's. But i dont exactly know the procedure coz bad thing is you lose your warranty.
Anyway these are the list of apps that i use :
1)Social networking apps:
Facebook,whatsapp,imo,skype,hike,twitter,fb messenger and kik
Youcam perfect,picsart,tubemate,mp3 video convertor,mp3 cutter
N7 music player,mx player,color note,news hunt,xender,pzizz,DIC-o french,Pocket MAL,Dubsmash
5)All system apps as well.
Asphalt 8 will work fine for a week and then your phone will start to lag. Other games which work well are :
Iron man 3,bad land,temple run(all),subway surfers,sniper shooter,transformers,batman arkham asylum..these are ones ive tried and all worked well.
Some tips :
1)Don't recharge your phone unless its below 15% or else you could damage your battery.
2)Clear cache once a week and every 2 days open your file browser and clean trash as well.
3)Use your antivirus to block spam calls and scan your phone , but dont bother updating that app.
4)Try not to use use launchers and lockscreen apps coz it eats up your phone's RAM plus the battery life. If you want it really bad use apps like Apus launcher, Nova launcher and lockscreens like C lockscreen.
5)Do not use the camera in the sunlight, your battery will overheat and your phone will switch off on its own.
6)Use google drive effectively to back up your data.
7)Use sd cards of good companies like sandisk or sony. Otherwise it may overheat and your motherboard will have problems.
8)If by any chance you think your phone is overheating around the camera area take it to the service center at once. Over heating happens due to the motherboard's fault and therefore it must be changed at once.
These are the problems ive faced and ive found solutions for all of them.If you've any doubts regarding this,just post it and il reply. If you are faced with a new problem which ive not mentioned,kindly share it.I hope this helps you guys. Do let me know if it was helpful.
I have been using this phone for past one year, it has a good battery that lasts for a full day, has a good rear camera. It has 8gb internal memory which is good.
After android upgrade ur front camera won't work or will disappear.
network disappears often and will have to restart to get signal.
While making a call the screen goes dark and u have to turn on again to end call, it ll be more difficult if u have a screen lock.
My screen got damaged and I thought of replacing it. I was shocked to hear 8000rs for screen while i found a same new phone on amazon for 7000rs.
I won't recommend this to even my enemy, coz of the worst service network. Everyone points someone else when contacted.
tenzib, 17 Apr 2015Any issue with the phone after upgrading to kitkat.. please do share ur honest experienceAfter upgrade my handset it is looking good but it sucks while using internet the data charges are getting itself high and deducting like 200mb for few mins and not even download any data and only just for browsing and main thing its speed is worst than 2G speed I went to service centre to degrade to Jelly bean they did not degrade because of doing this the handset may have a chance to dead completely. For lenovo customers they should have to find a solution either they bring a exchange offer for some lenovo 7000 series
