Before going further let me tell you the most important thing first – Rooting Voids Warranty . Once you root your device you can unroot it anytime .

How To Root Lenovo S5000

  1. Download The Framaroot.apk and Install the Framaroot.apk file you have downloaded earlier on your Lenovo S5000. Enable the installation option from unknown sources if asked.
  2. Open the installed Framaroot application on your tablet.
  3. Choose Install SuperSU.
  4. There you will find a button probably named as Barahir, so tap it once & wait for few moments.
  5. And you will see the following text: “Success, Superuser and SU binary installed.”
  6. Reboot the device
  7. You should now see the super-user icon in your device’s app drawer. Your Lenovo S5000 device is now rooted.

  1. i cant root my lenovo a706 using framaroot… not like my a800.. in a800 i rooted it so easy using framaroot… but in a706 it doesnt show boromir it only shows Aragorn and gandalf… y is it like this.. please help me.. thank you!

  2. Framaroot doesn’t work on S5000. Neither for me, nor for a friend with the same tablet. I guess all we could do is wait for another update.

  3. please make a guide for install cwm in this tablet!

  4. Just the same for me:
    Note of the exploits in framaroot currently work for the S5000, tested yesterday

  5. Unfortunately, neither Boromir nor Faramir work on Lenovo S5000 (failed to root the device, error #9). Tested today, with apk version 1.8.1.

  6. New version (apk 1.9.0) successfully rooted my Lenovo S5000-F (at least it says so, I haven’t rebooted yet). The new exploit is called Barahir. Word of advice: if you want to root the tablet, skip the firmware update, so that the exploit has a chance to work…

    • to: GS, can i root my s5000 after i done the firmware update using that 1.9.0 version? because i dont know t at all about rooting this device before …

    • I have a Lenovo S5000-F too, and am thinking of rooting it, in order to be able to lower the brightness of the backlights.

      Can you confirm that Framaroot successfully rooted your Lenovo S5000-F AFTER you rebooted the machine?

      When I got my my Lenovo S5000-F a couple of weeks ago, I am pretty sure that it updated the operating system automatically, or that I updated it myself, from the Settings menu. If I DID update the OS, will Framaroot still root the machine successfully?

  7. How can we flash a recovery on the s5000?

  8. How should I root lenovo A5000-e

  9. i need custom rom for lenovo s5000

  10. Lenovo S5000 -H (3G) loses root on OTA update S5000_A422_004_089_140324_WW_SMS but Barahir exploit again roots this update

  11. used vroot from chinese website (updated the library) and then install superuser, change the launcher and works flawless

  12. Can i uninstall framaroot after the root?

  13. It says failed to root try another exploit

  14. Hey, just wanna ask something. I already done what you wrote and downloaded the apps. Then I downloaded an app for reboot. Then my phone went off and restart. But I still can’t find the super user icon like you said.
