Hmm did the ROM install and once you reboot does the fastboot show? Have you tried using the hardware key method and getting into recovery?

I had the same issue recently (which got me to start posting on here after using this forum for help). If you can get into your ROM regardless of the lack of recovery, that would be a huge plus. The VS980 is not friendly with GooManager and TWRP Manager. However, it's friendly with the Flashify app. Give it a try if you can boot into your ROM.

i was updating TWRP to the 2.7, wasnt changing the ROM in that moment, apparently i did something wrong, and now if i try to get to recovery (with the key combination) it stays on fastboot

if i just turn it on, it stays on bootloop

if i go into download mode, my pc kind of recognizes it, but doesnt let me puso a recovery

hmm ya if recovery is pooched and you cannot use adb to install another one... i think your only option is to use flashtool and install kdz again...

I'm assuming you already finished the KDZ process. If you haven't and can boot into your ROM, you can ressurect TWRP via adb or the flashify app. I went through the same situation as you and could boot into my ROM.
