Note: This is a post to share the experience that I had, during the installing process of Lineage Os. So That someone else can learn from my experience
I'm new to modding Android Phones and installing Custom ROM in phones.
I decided to install Lineage Os on My Asus ZenPhone Max Pro M1, I was following these steps.
- Unlocking BootLoader
- Installing Custom recovery
- I installed
twrp-3.2.3-0-X00TDwhich is also recommended in the instructions.
- I installed
- Installing Os from the recovery.
experance some hiccups
Following the steps was in the documentations I wiped all the data(cache) and system partitions. after that, I went to
Advance > ADB sideload and Twrp was stuck at Starting ADB sideload Features and I was not able to find my device on
adb devices command. I also tried to install the os from external storage. But then
twrp was saying that the file is corrupted. So I download the Os zip file again. and
twrp was not able to map the file.
I found the solution though. I read the documentation again the installing Lineage Os part and the warning caught my eye. the warning as follows
WARNING: Depending on which recovery you use, you may be prompted to install additional apps and services. We strongly advise you to opt-out of installing these, as they may cause your device to boot-loop, as well as attempt to access or corrupt your data.
And I thought that I can also use another recovery as well, because as per my diagnostics I thought that problem might be in
twrp recovery so I searched about the problems that I stated above. and I found that there were some problem as same as mine before as well. So I started searching for another version from
twrp on their official website but I was not able to find a version from my phone. After that I Start finding another recovery that supports my phone and I come across OrangeFox recovery and I download a supported version from here and now I'm able to install any from recovery. I installed lineage os from ADB sideload. and my Phone just completed the
open G-aaps installation as I was writing this post.
I hope this can be helpful to others.
