I am trying to get a custon ROM to work on my Oneplus 8 Pro (instantnoodlep)

ROMs I tried installing:
Cherish OS 3.9.5
Nameless-AOSP_instantnoodlep-12.1-20220708-0935-Official

What I do:
1. Download recovery provided with the ROM
2. Reboot to bootloader and flash recovery
'fastboot flash recovery recovery.img'
'fastboot reboot recovery'
3. Select apply update/apply from ADB
4. Connect device to PC
5. Sideload rom.zip
'adb sideload rom.zip'
6 Do Factory reset/format data from recovery
7. Restart to system


What happens:
Phone goes to fastboot and stays there.
When I try
fastboot reboot system
or
fastboot reboot recovery
I also land in fastboot again.

The only way to get out of fastboot again is fastboot boot recovery.img, which boots into recovery. When I then reboot into system, my old OOS11 boots up.


Because this is independent of the Custon ROM, there might be another issue. But which one?

U don't need the command fastboot reboot recovery. U can just use the volume buttons to select recovery and press power button to boot to recovery

I had a heck of a time with this two days ago. OP pushed c33, A12 on my phone. It took forever to corrupt both a and b enough to get twrp recovery installed and working to install A11 again. I had to load the recovery on both slots, a and b and I used twrp install to install the OTA to slot a. Right now I have nothing on slot b other that twrp recovery.

Sorted it out by this. Thank you!
