    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH HAS FEW BUGS. HAVE A BACKUP OF THE CURRENT ROM BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Lenovo P2 (kuntao) requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Lenovo P2 (kuntao) phone, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
