So guys, simple as that. I'm planning to use adb sideload in twrp afterwards to flash a rom. I have a corrupt folder and I can't seem to be able to delete it + I wanna clean up the phone. So how would I go about it step by step? If there is a guide somewhere, I'm sorry, but I can't search anything in Tapatalk :/

Any help appreciated!

Why don't you flash the factory image and just start over. Wiping internal storage is going to wipe everything anyway

Start fresh. Flash factory images. All you need is here.

Or you can just wipe everything in recovery, reboot to recovery (optional), and sideload the rom of your choosing.

Yeah I was thinking of doing this, because it seems like less hassle than flashing factory images. I did it once in the past I think, but I don't remember the exact steps. So that's what I wanted to ask

Yeah, you can just wipe it all in recovery. It will reformat it. Good luck then. [emoji4]

Man, it was hell of a ride again. First drivers of course, i hate when they just "unnistall by themselves" I hope u know what i mean. Everytime u wanna use those things u have to install them all over again. next thing i kept getting erros while sideloading, again. For me, i cant have errorless sideload, no. So i rebooted phone, pc = rom sideloaded sucessfully. Weird.
