Introduction:

Team Win Recovery Project or TWRP for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It's a fully touch-driven user interface, with no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML-driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Key Features:

Touchscreen driven with real buttons and drag-to-scroll
XML-based GUI that allows full customization of the layout true theming!
Settings are saved to the sdcard and persist through reboots
Ability to choose which partitions to back up and which to restore
Ability to choose to compress backups now with pigz (multi-core processor support for faster compression times)
Onscreen keyboard
Easy selection of internal/external storage

In addition to the above new features, TWRP features a scripting engine that allows an app to send commands to the recovery for the recovery to perform during startup. We call this scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript. This engine will be put to use immediately in the GooManager app. GooManager will be able to install recoveries automatically for most supported devices. The app will also let you choose to install multiple zips from within Android, wipe, and run a backup.

We are looking for other talented developers, themers, and device maintainers if they are interested in helping with a free, open-source project.

So the next build of official TWRP for Z01RD will include vendor wiping since it seems that the modified prebuilt vendor image flashing can sometimes break the vendor partition for future flashing.

  4. Run this command (Change the .img to whatever the name of the file is you downloaded):
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot twrp-3.5.2_10-1-Z01RD.img
  5. (Optional instructions from this point on) Install ROM of choice
  6. Install TWRP installer zip
  7. Reboot to recovery
  8. Install GApps
  9. Reboot to system

I did steps 1-4 in an unlocked bootloader zenfone 5z. After flashing TWRP, my phone is stuck in either TWRP or fastboot; and TWRP can't mount any storage so adb loading firmware isn't possible.
Is there a way to recover from this?
Phone can only receive fasboot commands and TWRP non storage commands

Heyyo @fastrespawn , you will need to format data in TWRP as stock ROM uses Full Disk Encryption and on custom ROMs like LineageOS we use the newer File-Based Encryption.

Wipe > "Format Data" Button > Type "yes" > Keyboard checkbox

Then wipe Cache and system and reboot to recovery and you're ready to flash a custom ROM.

I've expanded the instructions to mention this
