Important instructions

  1. First step has a lot to do with the following: activate the USB Debugging mode on the smartphone, which you can do very easily. Just go to the gadget’s Menu > Settings > Apps. After that you must choose Development and finally activate the USB Debugging. Next: perform a connection between the tablet and the PC and access the Command line (for that you must go to Start, then cmd.). The window should be launched in the directory where the ADB file is located.
  2. Step 2: write adb shell using the Command line mentioned a bit earlier, then wait until the Shell mode is activated.
  3. For the third step you need to, while in that mode, type “su“. Once you do this, you should see a message.
  4. Step 4: give the appropriate level access to Superuser and then enter these lines via the Command line. At the end of these command, you should use the Enter button:
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system
    rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
    rm /system/xbin/su
    rm /system/bin/su
  5. Step number 5 needs you to restart the device once you are done with the insertion of the commands above. This will mark the end of the unrooting of your Lenovo ThinkPad. Which has been our intention all along.
