In recovery, perform a full factory reset, wipe cache, dalvik cache and wipe data/factory reset. (source: https://www.naldotech.com/how-to-install-custom-roms-on-nexus-6p-with-custom-recovery/)

But in my Android Recovery I can only see following options:

  • Apply update from ADB (or SD card)
  • Wipe data/factory reset
  • Wipe cache partition
  • Mount /system
  • View recovery logs
  • Run graphics test

No such thing as full factory reset, wipe cache, dalvik cache. There is also no "install" option.

My Recovery screen says:

Android Recovery, 
8.1.0/OPM6. ...(long version), 

Prior to that I have installed custom recovery (TWRP) from Play Store. Perhaps TWRP should be installed differently?

  • Twrp can't get installed from play store. You need to unlock bootloader and then enter to bootloader mode and install twrp through adb commands. – Rahul Gopi Mar 21 '19 at 0:44
  • @RahulGopi when you are in fastboot mode, adb commands don't work. Only fastboot commands work. overdrive, as suggested above, you need to flash a compatible Twrp image in your device. You cannot flash a custom ROM using stock recovery (not permitted). – Firelord Mar 21 '19 at 3:59
  • @Firelord Thanks. I forgot about fastboot during commenting. Only adb is remembering at that time. some commands example: handsetgeek.com/adb-fastboot-commands.html – Rahul Gopi Mar 21 '19 at 5:23
