We had recently upgraded our Lenovo A6000 to Lollipop 5.0.2 which we got officially from the Lenovo OTA servers. But after upgrading we lost the SuperSu and our device went back to un-rooted stage which means we are not able to take full freedom of our device. Now you can Root Lenovo A6000 if it is running on Lollipop 5.0.2 or above. This is a simple guide just like we flashed TWRP Recovery on Lenovo A6000/Plus, rooting is also the same and it requires only 1-3 minutes if the resources are ready.
WARNING : Rooting or installing a custom rom or recovery might brick your device or your device may act abnormally and you also lose the device warranty. You may even get a dead SD card which might not work or you can leave your device in a dead state. Before going through the entire tutorial please be advised that it is your own responsibility to go further. We’re not liable for any loss of data or any property of yours by any mean.
