lenovo z6 root and twrp

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the installation process of TWRP on the Lenovo Z6. If you wish, you can stop after installing the TWRP recovery. However, if you wish, you can also start the process to root Lenovo Z6. All the necessary downloads are linked below, as well as all the requirements that you need to fulfill.


If you root your Lenovo Z6, your warranty will be canceled. In addition, flashing a custom recovery and using it to flash third-party mods can be risky. You could end up breaking your device. Even if you correctly follow all the steps mentioned below, there is always a chance that things will go south for you. Make sure you know what you are doing and do everything at your own risk. DroidViews or whoever can not be held responsible in such circumstances.

The rooting process does not require you to format your device or format it automatically. However, make sure you have backed up everything important, including files and folders stored on your device’s internal storage. Creating a backup is never a bad idea. If you have not unlocked the boot loader yet, your device will be erased, including the internal memory, when you unlock it.


Before you can root Lenovo Z6, make sure to meet you.

    1. A Lenovo Z6 with an unlocked bootloader.
    2. You will need a Windows, Mac or Linux computer with the tools of the Android SDK platform. We have a specific and detailed guide explaining how to do exactly that for the three platforms, linked below.
    3. Extract the downloaded zip file anywhere on your PC.
    4. The extracted platform-tools folder contains all the necessary tools to run ADB and Fastboot.
