Why doesn't it work?
Is there an error or something?

You can also temporarily boot twrp or any other recovery using
Code:
fastboot boot twrpOrOtherRecovery.img
and use the install feature there.

It would be really helpfull if you tell us what you did and what error occured.


EDIT: Did you follow this official guide using the rom for your device?

So...

1) you are in lineageOS' recovery
2) click `apply update'
3) `from adb'
4) You do adb sideload lineageos.zip

And then, the device stays black and nothing appears on the screen? No text or anything appears?
What about your terminal on your computer? Does it indicate that it's actually sideloading that zip?

Okay. Then try the following:

1) boot twrp.
2) do adb push /path/to/lineageos.zip /tmp
3) Via twrp click the `install' button.
4) Navigate to /tmp and choose the lineageos.zip
5) follow instructions to install (twrp shows these)
6) Done.

Does that work?

thanks for your help my friend
I finally managed to flash lineage os directly via twrp recovery and zip file, but during the installation process, the screen went completely off, I had to manually reboot the phone and then it booted, is this normal?

Glad it worked!
I actually never had that before and don't remember that I read that.
But if it works fine now, you shouldn't be too worried about it.

If you want to know what the cause is, maybe you can open another question here. Someone might know, even tough it might be difficult to find the cause without recovery logs.
