Hey guyz,even I m facing a lot of issues with this phone,now I m really fucked up,I bought this phone in july 2016,n for a while like 2-3,it was really working well,after that I started facing some issues like after ending up calls it hangs,So later on I heard there was an update to marshmellow,so I updated to marshmallow using C4etech's(youtuber)instruction as he uploaded a video in youtube,So after thr update to marshmallow,I was so glad,as so many features were newly available,fingerprint scanner was working well like 1to1-½ month,after that I noticed that some issues on fingerscanner,I wasn't working well,instead of unlocking in the first attempt,it used to get unlocked in the second,so for a while I stopped using fingerprint like 7 days,later when I went to set up fingerprint scanner in the settings, I was soo shocked as the fingerprint scanner option wasn't there, I don't know how it could vanish off so easily,I thought this issue was there oly in my phone,later on I saw so many people complaining about fingerprint scanner on zuk z1,from then I didnt even update to any updates which I used to get in my phone,can somebody please tell how can I update my phone to pure nought 7.1 without any issues
syed raj, 21 Feb 2017Whether Lenovo zuk z1 is enable volte or notNo
I hv been using this mobile for a year... Excellent performance.. But i dont like its signal strength.. Its weak
Hii guys pleasevhelp how to root zuk z1
I try every rooting aapp even PC BT z1 not root
Lineage 14.1 on Zuk Z1
Automatic adaptive display works
No bootloop or lagging issues on my experience.
Over-all Nougat Software is in full effect.
Hi Guys! Been using this phone for almost a year.
1. Working good for the first 8 months with Cyanogen12.1
2. Last few months, noted overheating patterns and lagging and restarting issues.
3. However, performance and battery life was still good.
I guess the overheating and restarting problems are due to software issues.
So, what I did was look for many reviews and research for Good zuk z1 roms.
At first was like, I should update only to Official ZuK software. But boo, poor software support. So why should I wait for nothing?
Finally, I am so happy with my research. It worked for me! All the hard efforts were paid. I have the latest software with minimal tolerable bugs!
Maybe this can help you and appreciate this phone again:
1. Unlock your bootloader. (This requires a lot of patience to work)(videos in youtube helps: use keywords:unlock bootloader zuk z1)
2. Install custom recovery with TWRP
3. Root your phone. With super su
4. Download CM13(marshmallow official)-CM14(nougat 7.0 official)-Lineage14.1(nougat 7.1.1 by ordenkriegger) roms. Download them all for they are incremental updates and you cannot directly install nougat from lollipop.
5. Download Gapps ( download each for marshmallow, nougat 7.0 and 7.1)
6. Then were all set.
7. Go to developer options and allow advanced reboot-> recovery
8. Do a wipe first, then follow this installation pattern:
Flash with cm13 first then gapps for marshmallow then reboot.
Go to advanced reboot-> recovery
Do a wipe-> flash cm 14->gapps for nougat then reboot
Advanced reboot-> recovery
Do a wipe-> flash lineage 14.1-> gapps for 7.1.1 then reboot
You have the latest firmware for lenovo zuk z1!
Fingerprint sensor is working properly
Camera support and 4k video support is very good.
No Volte as the official ordenkriegger page said.
So far, restarting issues were not present on my experience.
Fast and split screen support
Increased antutu scores
So far, some minimal issues with stock brower which lags but may be overcome by downloading google chrome. And use chrome as default browser.
The unlocking of bootloader itself is a pain in the ass. I was stuck here for almost a day. Just do your reading and research. Everything will go well.
So now, I'm happy again with my Zuk Z1. I' m like having a new phone again!
Just be patient.
I am John Wickk.
