Hello everyone. So I've been trying ROMS(Rooted Stock, RwizzROM Creator Magisk module, Andy Yan's LineageOS, LineageOS R Mod), I'm currently on LineageOS R Mod with rainbow kernel and I wanted to flash back to stock because the touch-not-working-after-phone-sleeps problem was annoying me. I tried using "adb reboot download", and holding "Vol + and Vol -" button and plugging my phone but it doesn't boot into download mode, same goes for recovery mode with "adb reboot recovery" and "Power and Vol +" button. It just boots up the phone to the phone screen. I also tried factory resetting the phone but it just reboots it and does nothing. The phone still works but now I can't go back to stock ROM. I was just wondering if anybody experienced this as well and is there a possible fix for this or am I stuck with this ROM now?

Which model, and where did you get image file of ROM? There could be a chance it replaced your recovery with it's from boot.img, same goes for download mode. But I still think that is less common to happend for download because it is stored on a special partition unlike recovery.
At the end of the day, you can always boot in to META-MODE and from there flash everything new.

Boot in META-MODE? How do I do that?

Nvm my question here XD. I finally booted into Download mode. What I did was I turned off my phone then I held the Power and Vol - button and the screen was stuck on a "Charging" image or something then after that I held the power button and when the phone shut down I held the Vol + and Vol - and plugged the phone to my laptop and it booted into Download mode and I am now on Stock ROM again. I'm not sure if that really was META-MODE but it did help me do some searching and trying on my phone. Thanks for the help and knowledge :D

Meta mode is diffrent from download mode(odin mode). To enter META-MODE you have to joint pins on the board. And you can't just get that stcuk in a ROM, everything works but you probably are very new to this so it is a new experience for you. And when you are flashing new fimware, I recomend to follow this guide:
