    I bought my z5 on eBay and didn’t realize the seller was going to root it first before sending it.
    How can I obtain the original ROM so to install it and re-root the phone?

      Hello Dom,
      Why do you want to re-root the phone? that doesn’t make sense. If you want your phone to be rooted then it is already rooted as you told me. But if you want to unroot then follow the above steps to unroot your device. You need to figure out how your phone was rooted, in apps is there any root apps?

        Sorry, I was meaning to unroot, my bad.
        Substantially I am considering restore it to original as from the manufacturer.
        This is because not sure the ROM installed is well optimized and I will not get updates when available.
        I don’t have the ROM because the seller sent it to me already rooted.

    Hello guys, I have the same problem above. Also, my Lenovo Z5 has come rooted and the ROM installed is missing a lot of features. Specifically the Sim toolkit. It only has very few Android apps. And it can’t install some sensitive apps because it’s rooted. And it boots with some wearied warning. Help me restore the original ROM.
