Hello there. I updated my Nubia Z20 global ROM to android 11. I lost Google services in the process.
So I install the necessary drivers on my PC and used minimal adb and fastboot to unlock bootloader on my phone. But my problem is that I can't install TWRP recovery on the phone itself.

I used the Twrp recovery for nubia z20.exe to get the phone into fastboot mode but I cannot proceed any further.
Once the phone enters into fastboot mode, the computer wont detect my phone anymore.
Please help

    Are you able to extract the .exe with something like 7zip to get the twrp.img file?
    Then you could fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
    Thanks so much. I will use 7zip to get the twrp.img file.
    After that, what do I do next?
    do I open minimal adb and fastboot then type the command "fastboot recovery twrp.img"?
    If you're able to extract it, yes. I tried searching for a copy of that file, but they all appear to be removed from the forums.
