    Hello guys, Im having this problem with my Lenovo S856, where I installed a new rom, it ended ok, installation successful, and then the phone doesnt boot, it only shows the Lenovo screen forever, I still can go into recovery mode, but dunno what to do.

    This is the guide I was doing:

    Go into recovery, do a factory reset, and reflash the ROM.

    Do you give it enough time? Sometimes it can take a looooooonnnng time on first boot.

    Well, it's going to vary based on the device and the ROM. Mine takes 5-10 minutes.

    15min and it doesnt go through, dunno whats happening, according to what Im reading, my phone its chinese, I bought it online, and when I tried to put the "US" rom, it broke something, and installing the chinese rom woulr be the solution, but I cannot get the chinese .qsb, I only found a folder to be installed with Flash Tools, but I dont know how to use the program.

    Are there any other ROMs available for this model? Is there a CyanogenMod ROM? I don't know because I'm not familiar with that device.

    I use CyanogenMod and it's about as close to a professional ROM as one can get.

    Sadly i couldnt find a cyanogenmod, Lenovo is not even listed in their webpage download section.

    I managed to find a chinese and a original from their website rom but they are not .qsb files and i dont know how to install them with the recovery
