I have tried to flash the custom ROM CM 13 to my Lenovo A6000 plus as described in the xda thread. My phone was running on Lollipop and was rooted. I had twrp in my phone. So I simply copied [ED300-CM13.0-UNOFFICIAL-wt86518.zip] and [open_gapps-arm-6.0-micro-,,,,,.zip] to my external sd card and tried to flash them using twrp. Installation of ED300-CM13.0-UNOFFICIAL-wt86518.zip was seemed succes but open_gapps-arm-6.0-micro-,,,,,.zip showed an error as
zip file corrupted.
I assumed the installation of later was only to include the necessary Google apps. So I thought not to install them assuming that they weren't necessary. I simply reboot the phone. Now my phone is in an infinite bootloop. It just shows the Lenovo logo, stays for 2-3 minutes and again go back to boot.
I tried to enter into twrp but didn't succeed. I can access the bootloader. So I put the phone to bootloader and connected to my laptop. But when I type
adb devices it doesn't detect the device.
Did I really brick my device? Is there a way to get back? I just want to flash any compatible ROM so that the phone stays up. Please don't tell me to get back to xda :(
