Hope this fixes your problem too.
I did try going back to complete stock. Thats when the problem actually started happening.
I flashed the stock recovery i downloaded from the oppo forums with fastboot. i then booted into the recovery which is still very difficult to get in to and flashed color os. it takes me like ten attempts before i get in. i then setup my phone for regular use. things seemed normal till that evening. when i tried launching a few apps and received error messages saying app wasn't installed. so i reinstalled them and then it happened again. i also launched the camera app a little later and realized the pictures i had taken were also gone.
When i am able to get into recovery i noticed there used to be a lot more folders under install zip from sdcard. now i only have maybe 5 to pick from when before there was probably 10 or more.
Thank you for your suggestion.
