During the following guidelines we will be checking how to apply a new one click root solution that is compatible with the Lenovo A850 smartphone. The process is quite intuitive which means that even a newbie can easily apply this new root solution. In order to make a proper idea about this step by step guide, don’t hesitate and read the following lines.
Ensuring root access is important especially for those who want to spice things up a little bit. As you might know, gaining root access implies in removing factory and default restrictions from your Lenovo A850. Thus, after completing the steps from below you will also have access to the Android firmware and you will be able to optimize and customize the same by your own taste. Moreover, since we are about to unlock your Android smartphone, the advantages that are related to the root operations are numerous.
For example, after completing this guide you will be able to install complex apps from Google Play, or from other sources. Then, you can consider in performing other custom operations such as install a custom recovery image (like CWM or TWRP recovery), update with a custom ROM firmware (such as CM11, AOKP or Paranoid Android), flash a custom kernel, overclock your Android device, remove bloatware and more. The results are various, but basically the speeds will be improved, the battery life upgraded, the Android system customized and personalized and the general performances optimized.
That’s why, ensuring root is a must especially for advanced Android users who wants to unlock the true potential of their Lenovo A850. But, where we have so many advantages, there must be a negative aspect too. Well, in our case, root represents an unofficial operation that has nothing to do with Lenovo or with Google. So, by completing this one click root solution you will lose the Lenovo A850 warranty, meaning that you won’t be able to reclaim the same in case something bad happens and you need to take your phone back to service (you will have to pay for the technical assistance or you will have to try to manually fix your bricked Android device).
Even though it is unlikely, in some rare cases your data might get corrupted or erased during the root process. Because of that, the best will be to backup your data before doing anything else. So, go to Google Play and download backup and restore apps, or use a cloud service, and save everything from the internal storage memory of your Lenovo A850. You should start with your contacts, call logs, text messages and you should end up with your images, videos, audio files, market apps, internet settings and other personal data, info and accounts. Also, if possible save your current ROM by making a Nandroid backup.
On the other hand, for this guide you will have to use a computer. The computer will be useful only for downloading the one click root file. Anyway, in order to make things right, first of all deactivate – only temporarily – the security protection from your computer or else the antivirus tools might interfere with our plans. On your phone enable USB debugging option from path “menu – settings – developer options”. Also, on your device take a look over the battery status: if the power left is less than 50%, plug in the charger before doing anything else (your phone might get bricked if it gets turned off in the middle of the root operation).
This step by step guide is compatible with the Lenove A850 – the steps from below shouldn’t be completed for a similar or different Android powered smartphone or tablet.
