I have a K3 Note with the CHINESE ROM VIBEUI V251512_5495.1 and I'd like to install a recovery and root the phone; the user interface of the LENOVO Smart Assistant is only in Chinese. How can I do to get an English language version?

I tried different other solutions such as ADB and Fastboot, the start of the process is OK, ADB sees the phone, then I launch ADB reboot bootloader and it is still ok, thenphone switches in FASTBOOT mode as this appears at the bottom of the screen and when I launch the command FASTBOOT devices, nothing, the phone is not seen. After some time the PC asks for a driver, but which one? I installed a pack adb-setup-1.4.2.exe as it is mentioned in the tutorial. You can access a recovery menu by pressing the relevant keys but of course useless as it is written in Chinese.

You will need to install the Fastboot drivers. These drivers allow communication with your PC while you're in the Bootloader. To download the drivers, access the link below and then click the AndroidMTK website. Scroll down to find your phone and download the drivers. Disconnect the phone, install the drivers, plug the phone in Bootloader mode, install the drivers, then repeat the whole rooting/recovery flashing procedure and it should work.
