How to flash custom ROM on lenovo A3000 H using cwm which is formatted, not rooted.


Hi I am Rupesh from India and I have lenovo A 3000 H idea tab and I want to flash custom ROM. Previously I tried to flash the custom ROM called A3300HV_CM_5.1.1.zip. I found how to flash the above ROM in XDA forum and tried to follow the procedure. At first I acquired root permissions using iroot then installed superuser app and then flashed cwm recovery using flashify app and in cwm recovery tried to install the above ROM but failed. I have tried to flash twrp recovery which is downloaded from XDA forum but failed.

After some days other people have unrooted my tab without my permission after that I have tried to root my tab using a number of ways but failed. After that in cwm recovery I tried to install A3300HV_CM_5.1.1.zip custom ROM which is in external sdcard but unfortunately I got lots of errors.

In order to install A3300HV_CM_5.1.1.zip custom ROM I thought to format all the partitions and so I wiped dalvik cache after that formatted cache partition after that formatted data and system partitions. After performing the above steps I have tried to install A3300HV_CM_5.1.1.zip ROM from external sdcard but again failed.

At present there is no os in my tab but I am able to enter into cwm recovery. In cwm recovery when I try to install A3300HV_CM_5.1.1.zip ROM I am getting a lot of errors.



When I connect charger to my tab the logo lenovo is blinking again and again and so I think my tab is not charging properly.

I have downloaded the following custom ROMs from XDA forum website

cm-13.0-20160910-UNOFFICIAL-A3300.zip
cm-13.0-20160919-UNOFFICIAL-A3300.zip
ResurrectionRemix-M-v5.7.3-20160807-a3300hv-mtkroms.com.zip

when I try to install in cwm recovery any of the above ROMS which are stored in external sdcard I am not getting succeeded.


Please suggest how to flash any of the custom ROMs specified above in cwm recovery. Is there any way to flash the above mentioned custom ROMs using flash tool or other software in PC.


Please don't try to say that you are an idiot and so we are closing the thread.

I have tried to post the thread in AndroidQuestion.org by first logging using username as rupeshforu3 but failed and so I am posting here.

Regards,
Rupesh.

You can't just install any custom rom. It needs to be compatible with your tab model. From the info you give, that does not seem to the case - A3000H is not A3300HV. Try finding a rom specific for your model or reload the original.
I hope you backed up the original firmware.
You also need to be rooted I believe so you may have to reflash original firmware if you can get it. SP Flashtool works for flashing roms. There is a windows version and a linux version. I've never been able to get the linux version to work.

this sounds incredulous! others you don't approve of have had easy access to hacking your phone?

this sounds like someone asking "the world" how to reprogram a stolen phone (change ID) or worse: imitate another phone id

MY ADVISE: DO NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION. will do more harm than good.
