    Followed everything, and watched the CMD screen. All looked well, and it went through everything. After installing a root checker, it showed that it was not rooted.
    I did it again and nothing.

      It’s not tested on that device. You can try it but do at your own risk.

        I’ve yet to find a device driver package that works asis.
        The trick to get the adb driver to install is to edit the .inf file to make the device ids matchup with the ones
        shown by the Windows Device manager. For me, for my S8-50 we have:

        %Lenovo% = USB_Install, USB\VID_17EF&PID_77D9&REV_FFFF&MI_02
        %Lenovo% = USB_Install, USB\VID_17EF&PID_77D9&MI_02

        If you have a 64 bit machine be sure to fix these lines under the [….NTamd64] stanza or similar.

      What’s happen in the end after you followed all the steps?

    Dori, you need to update this webpage. The rooter program you provide here did work with Android 4.x but fails after the latest Lenovo update to Android 5.0.1.

    I’m told the S8_50 can still be rooted by forcing it to load a TWRP or similar recovery program – you have to do this via USB from a PC… I haven’t gotten around to trying this yet.

    hey dory. thank you so much. this worked like a charm. but I have some issues maybe you can help me with. I bought my lenovo s8-50lc tab from China and some of the apps are in Chinese language. what’s even worse is that I cannot run any google services like play store google play and therefore cannot download anything and use from google play. For this reason I want to flash the custom kitkat firmware on my tab. your thoughts on that. Also I seem to be having a hard time finding ADB driver for lenovo s8-50lc.
