Flash LineageOS

First boot into the recovery mode:

  • Either with adb: adb reboot recovery
  • Or with the recovery mode key combination of your device.
    • Note: this is not the same combination for the download mode.

Then go to Wipe + Advanced Wipe to wipe the following partitions:

  • System
  • Data
  • Cache
  • Dalvik

Then go to Advanced/ADB Sideload, swipe to the right, and execute adb sideload lineage-xxx.zip on your computer.

  • When it shows adb: failed to read command: Success on the PC, and Exit code: 1.000000 in TWRP, it has suceeded.

Reboot to start LineageOS!
