We have noticed that many of us are not able to update our Lenovo A6000 device using the OTA Update. Many of our blog visitors have complained that it is due to custom recovery and yes they were right it happens due to the custom recovery and a rooted device, the most common error while installing the OTA update for Lenovo A6000 is the Status 101 and then followed by Status 7. For Status 7 we do have a fix and most of us know about it, but this Status 101 error which pops up while updating our device was mostly unknown, but there is a fix for it. We need to install the Lenovo A6000 Lollipop Stock Recovery for installing the OTA update without any error. You just need to follow the guide which we’ve tried to make it as simple as possible so that you don’t get confused. You can do it in two ways and that is using a pc/laptop or without it using flashify app on your Lenovo A6000 Lollipop running device. But we would prefer using the pc/laptop if it is available with you because it is more convenient and sometimes without PC/laptop it is not successful to install recovery without it on your device.
