ROM is working flawlessly, there are couple of chinese apps that u can remove.

Guys please do not install GAPPS just after flashing the Rom.After Flashing rom reboot the system and configure it,then go to recovery and then flash the GAPPS.
If u flash GAPPS just after flashing rom, then after reboot the rom will not move past to the welcome screen and says “WLAN stpped working”.

“Do not update this rom as u will loose root privilege, Recovery and google services”

    Install without problem. Working very smoothly I am coming back from Limonchello to Vibe UI and Vibe does feel a lot more fluid.

    My only problem is with facebook which crashes when I try to access my messages, same with messenger which quits as soon as I try to access a message with popup : “Unfortunately, Messenger has stopped”. I wiped both apps caches, partition cache, reinstalled… no way to get rid of the problem. Any Ideas how to solve ?

  8. Gunner

    “Guys please do not install GAPPS just after flashing the Rom.After Flashing rom reboot the system and configure it,then go to recovery and then flash the GAPPS.
    If u flash GAPPS just after flashing rom, then after reboot the rom will not move past to the welcome screen and says “WLAN stopped working”.

    Unfortunately only found this after installing genuine standard vibe UI and gapps to replace vendor installed junk. I am now stuck at WLAN not working. cannot load adb drivers as not device not recognised – have I killed my phone? or is there any way to get out of WLAN error.

    1. Rick

      Just found the answer to my own question – hope it helps anybody else
      Copy vibe ui to root of phone using standard windows usb connection shows as K3 note drive.
      Rename vibe ui zip file as “update” and use lenovo reboot – vol+vol-power and it installs rom.
      May work with other roms – I’m too scared to try it
