i think i will give up

i used every option i would think of.
maybe the bootloader is locked, but i can not unlock it (since adb does not help)
i may get a old computer running windows 7 to use adb.
i have 2 computers, and both are either running linux or windows 10 (they are not compatible with 7)

If using flashtool you should not have to unlock bootloader , open flashtool , load scatter file , load recovery image , select download , power off device , plug in device with volume down and power button both held down , allow flash tool to flash image , green check mark , hold volume up , then press power button , continue to hold until TWRP boot screen , once in TWRP , make a backup , flash super su or magisk zip to install root , also you can flash xposed zip at this time , first boot to system will take some time after installing TWRP and root so just wait for device to fully boot prior to messing with it , it can take 5 to 15 min in some cases , just wait until fully booted , some devices require power off and either , just plug in usb , or power off and plug in with volume up , or plug in with volume down and power button held together to go into flash mode on sp flash tool

when i

plug in + volume down: it goes to factorykit test (idk what is that but whatever
plug in + volume up: it goes to android recovery
plug in + power + volume down: it resets after a few seconds
plug in + power + volume up: again, android recovery
power + volume up: recovery
power + volume down: safe mode or it turns off
power + volume up + volume down: either android recovery, factorykit test or safe mode

the only thing that i can think is to root temporaly using the one to click solutions, and install using the twrp app, however i don't trust it.

What is required is to load flashtool and select download then use button combo and plug in usb cable to device quickly to enter flash mode , it all has to be performed in one motion

rooted using kingo root (temporally) to install a app that can reboot to download mode, after installing it i clicked reboot to download mode and... nothing, it just booted normally, even with sp flash tool.

i guess i let installed kingo root and forget about spyware.
if there is a root app which can flash a recovery (something like the twrp app) then it will be possible, however for the time, i am done thinking about twrp.
