Rooting an Android operating system might sound like serious business, but all it usually does is install an application we know as SuperSU. The SuperSU app comes in many versions, and often you’ll need to find the right version to install on your device for it to work at optimum levels. That’s where you leave it to us to deliver you what you need.

Once you have the SuperSU application installed on the Lenovo Vibe X3 ROW device, you can use it to grant root permissions to the apps that require root to run. If you ever try installing root apps, it will end up on your Lenovo’s app drawer just fine, but when you open the application, it won’t run. That’s because it officially needs those rooting permissions to start up and get going. The same rooting permissions the SuperSU is going to grant for your device once you install it on your device.

Take Into Account:

Team Win often release several TWRP Recovery files for a particular device. They always recommend installing the latest version of TWRP available to avoid compatibility issues. If you have updated the firmware on the device recently and the most recent version of TWRP is not working, then try downgrading the firmware and trying again.

Some custom ROMs that are newer might not be compatible with older versions of TWRP Recovery. You can fix that issue by updating to the latest version of TWRP also.

You can visit the official Team Win Recovery Project home page and scroll down the list to find your device to get the most recent version if the version available in this guide is not working for your device.
