Hi guys, I'm sorry to bother with this question that seems ridiculous but unfortunately around you will not find many decent guides

I own a moto g 5g (Kiev) I would like to install custom rom but I know that the device has dual boot

Since there has been dual boot/partitions technology for years, I have not yet understood the correct installation of a custom rom in such devices
I've always been used to installing custom roms in devices with only one partition (which despite this I had difficulty anyway)

Is there anyone willing to write the steps and steps of installing recovery with custom rom for dual partition A/B devices?

It's also fine if you have material like: videos, links to guides and more

I apologize for my English from google translate :)

In bootloader
fastboot flash recovery_a <recoveryname.img>
fastboot flash recovery_b <recoveryname.img>

Or flash installer.zip in recovery

fastboot boot <recoveryname.img>
Sideload / select recovery zip


Typically the work flow follows as such:

1) Install permanent recovery via twrp ui or fastboot in bootloader
2) Flash rom.zip
3) Reboot recovery
Flash gapps
4) Format data (recovery ui)
format data (bootloader) / fastboot -w
5) Reboot system/start

Fastboot flash recovery must be specified and installed for both partitions. To install the custom ROM and Gapps you just need to flash, right? I noticed that some developers allow you to flash "copy_partition.zip" what would that be?
