It's already unlocked, without this I couldn't install twrp. As I said, I finally managed to install the OS via TWRP but it's stucked on the lenovo logo.. :( I flashed the system.img then the Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt but it's not working :( After the lenovo logo I have a red light then it's pushing me to the fastboot menu :(
Root with Magisk after installing the system image

In my mobile Lenovo K5 Note 2018 the only GSI that works without problems is AOSP, apart from being updated with the patches.

Octopus seems abandoned, Viper OS bootloop, Pixel Experience Bootloop, Bliss Os when activating the navigation bar remains in continuous restarts :(

AOSiP bootloop, Havoc in the same abandonment situation.

RR is the other one that works but does not have Gapps included and my model does not have TWRP, so I install everything in Fastboot mode.

you can have success by flashing magisk using boot.img that was patched

magisk will stop bootloop from happening because of dm-verity and encryption problems ....

then inside magisk you must use magicgapps to module to flash gapps systemless ...*maybe this will give you gapps..and besides there are many gsi on github that include gapps ....

you can do one easy thing ..take stock recovery.img ..download recovery port utility from xda ..make recovery for your device ...just use fastboot to "boot" the recovery ..not flash it ..that way you can flash gapps too without messing with stock recovery ...

** for many devices it's needed to factory reset AFTER installing the system image ..especially huawei ...you also need to format data in many cases because of encryption/ decryption issues

https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/twrp-porter-maker-mediatek-mt67xx-32-t3681861

or if 64bit follow this guide
https://www.stupdroid.com/2017/04/how-to-port-twrp-for-mediatek-64bit.html?m=1

here is device with same chipset as you
http://www.gizbeat.com/10576/blackview-bv6000-twrp-and-root-mt6755-helio-p10-guide/

USE THIS twrp to follow the guide from stupdroid

***also try one simple trick

in fastboot
use the twrp from blackview with same chip
_put the twrp in adb folder
_rename to recovery.img
_in fastboot run cmd

fastboot boot recovery.img

***it's possible on phone the twrp will boot and you can flash any file from sd card without installing the twrp ...MANY times recovery of another phone with same chip can boot on another phone ..

here you have all the tricks you need

My phone used SnapDragon 450, not Mediatek chipset.

I'll still investigate and see if I can solve

Hello, I installed this rom on my lenovo s5 k520 and I just have a few minor problems. 1 When I plug in my charger it doesn't show up as charging but it does charge, if I connect on my pc it does the same but it connects to the pc, If I restart my device then it shows up as charging, basically if I want my phone to display as charging I need to reboot. 2 For some reason when I activate battery saver "night mode" on developer options gets disabled and I need to reactivate (no idea why it does that), if not for that, your rom is the best one I've tested on my phone. Thanks for your work c:
