Hi!

Its the first time i try to boot a custom mod to an android.

Ive managed to unlock bootloader, get TWRP, tried to root with magisk but I think I failed that one.

I also managed to install Lineageos 18.2 but totally missed to install the google programs so I wanted to go into TWRP and do a factory reset and install the google programs aswell before booting. But now I cant enter TWRP/recovery mode, i used to click and hold volume rocket minus together with power on but it doesn't take me into the TWRP menu.

I found the setting about advanced restart in developer options to take me into recovery mode, but i only get the option to go into safe mode.

Any ideas? Cheers.

You may have Google apps without Google.
People use workarounds.
The one I know is APKPure.
I used it on Z1C for about a year or more.
I rooted it but I stayed with factory OS, though.
Of course not all google apps will work this way but it costs nothing to try.
It may save you lot of time.

you can also use an app store called yalp it gives u acces to all of the playstores apps as a apk
