    Thanks brother,
    Worked like a charm.
    I was flashing to an earlier version of SuperSU (1.94) and it was giving error on Android 5.0 (there is no su binary installed)
    With your updated SuperSU, I am able to root!

    Tried many times…. Ran as admin also…. Tried removing battery also….the procedure completes succesfully….. But It showed me lenovo stock recovery only….. Please help!

  7. shahid

    I had been through the same problem. Try this…it may help. While executing the command “fast boot reboot” don’t wait for your device to boot in normal mode….rather press and hold volume keys and the power key just after executing the command, and wait for recovery to load. Please comment if you get successful so that others could benefit

    My Lenovo K3 Note went suddenly into Meta mode after my battery completely drained out. When I tried to restart, the only message I get is “Have been in meta mode, long press the power button and the normal boot”.
    I tried all the possible options with power button and volume keys. Also removed the battery cards, sim. But only message I get is Meta mode. Phone is charging when I plug in the charger. However It is not getting detected in my laptop.

    I can see your process worked for many. But in my case it is in meta mode so I am not able to enable the USB debugging and installe the superSu on device.

    Can you suggest me some solution?
