  • EInstall 7-Zip.exe, then extract & install drivers Qualcomm_Usb_Driver.7z, then decompress Stock rom (ROW Firmware ) using 7-Zip.exe  to the root of any drive.
  • Check whether to install the necessary drivers.Open the Device Manager on your PC, then turn off the device (smartphone or tablet) and take out the USB-cable from the device (if it was connected).
    Then we press the Volume Up key (Volume Up) and holding it connect USB-cable which is already connected to the USB 2.0 port of your PC – in the Device Manager device should appear Qualcomm Lenovo HS-USB QDLoader 900854980dd0da5da_0.png
  • Run the utility QFIL (Start> All Programs> QPST> QFIL).
  • In the window QFIL fill in the following fields :In the Programmer patch specify the path to the file prog_emmc_firehose_89XX.mbn (in my case prog_emmc_firehose_8916.mbn), for this click on Knop «Browse», in the window that opens, specify the path to the folder with the firmware (in my case ROW_S121), then select the file prog_emmc_firehose_89XX. mbn and click “Open.”

  • To install the device in 9091 mode, I recommend to start the process of firmware A6000 turn off, holding down the Volume up, turn the power button A6000, after vibro release the power button, and then after a couple of seconds, releasing the volume – set the device to PC mode 9091.
    Firmware smartphone through Downloader_Lenovo_V1.0.2
    Download and extract to a folder without spaces and letters  Downloader_Lenovo_V1.0.2.7z (he and the driver came with firmware). Run as administrator flasher.3. Preferences change is not necessary, they are permanent :93605f87e500be6127d21fae293155e1.png
  • Select the folder in which you unzipped the firmware :49ee79477b3d78eaf1c932f38ab9d668.png
  • Press the start button of the firmware :e871e76edef3fab920b2b59d3221f593.png
  • Turn off the smartphone, hold down the volume up, turn the power button smartphone, after vibro release the power button and then after a few seconds by releasing the volume button – you will see this menu :356ae62a7488fbe9bee1ecc2b58a5df3.jpg
  • Connect your smartphone to your PC with a USB cable to the port (preferably black, USB 2.0) on the back of your PC (on the motherboard). The program will translate it into a flashing mode when you first plug it in, install the drivers for new devices and smartphone will be sewn :8c8b3519772c96eb0e182755eb1ca559.png
  • The flash will take 6-7 minutes, the end of the program will tell you :e4a502a7e301c8a2f0ff43e944a11d05.png
  • Turn off your smartphone, after the first start by entering the region code after changing the region recommend to immediately wipe do and use your smartphone! PS And a few wishes and parting words :

>>>>> If you do not have the strength to even install the drivers for the chips Qualcomm, the likelihood of a successful process of pouring firmware drops to 3%.

>>>>> I advise you to make a fill flash with a PC that is running Windows 7 (in Windows 8.1, but the likelihood of a successful process of pouring firmware reduced to 30%).

>>>>> The whole process of the firmware with this method is safe, but only in the right hands!

>>>> Good luck to all <<<<<

  3. Hi Dev,
    My A6K+ was bricked yesterday, I’ve tried flashing with QFIL with ROW firmware for A6K (cause A6K+ doesn’t have ROW firmware that can be used for flashing with QFIL). My Phone back to work again after that, although My RAM and my Internal Memory have been decreased (RAM 1 G and internal Memory 8 G)
    Finally I flash by manual update software for A6K+ Lollipop (Android 5.0.2: Kraft-A6000-s_S030_151030_WCAF) with stock recovery. Hence My Internal Memory still has an issue, only 4-5 GB although the RAM back to normal 2G. Please Dev, help me solve my Internal memory problem decreased. Sorry for my bad English

  4. Hello Bro,

    A6000 was dead while flashing Lolipop. I have tired all the methods still unable to make my phone to work. In Method 2 Download button is not highlighted so unable to proceed with that. For method 3 status shows downloading from 3 hours and more. For Method 1 i will get error after “Receiving hello packet”. Don’t know what to do now. I don’t see any response from Power & vol keys. Please do let me know how to make my A6000 to back to normal condition. It would be much grateful if you can help me with this.

  5. Which method works on the nexus 6p? I am linked to this page from the device page on this site.

    I can’t seem to get it to work. Now my device doesn’t even show up in device manager.

          1. If phone driver can still be seen on a PC, you just need to find full repair firmware, you can ask someone Nexus 6p fellow users to make backups and upload firmware … the easiest way is to use hddrawcopy tools. only backup and restore raw firmware. Discover Nexus 6p user on Nexus 6p forums/group is best solution..good luck

  6. Can you please provide the link to files required by qfil that are the .mbn and XML files

    I need them to unbrick my yuphoria as it have same MSM8916 board.

  7. I have a bricked A6000, i installed QPST in my system and sucessfuly installed but when i open it it showing an error,then i try to flash with lenovo downloader it connected and started to flash but after a long time it still on flashing .any solution

      1. Can you give me a link of where the error is an image? Usually if the flash process is successful, but no change. then the problem is damage on MMC hardware And you need to replace it with a new MMC

  24. Hello there
    I made a huge mistake with TWRP recovery, formatting all the partitions. Now my lenovo A6000 stops at the logo screen, without any possibilities to fastboot, probably because the internal storage is empty. I tried your suggestions and stuck at installing the the qualcomm drivers. I used Windows 7 64 bit PC for the purpose, however the D:DownloadsLenovo A6000Qualcomm_USB_DriversQualcomm_USB_DriversToolsDriverInstaller64.exe doesn’t do anything at all. Please suggest me how I could install these drivers so that I can try to continue with rest of the steps.
    Thanks in advance
