The rom is very unreliable and it is far away from being called stable.
Do not recommend using it as a daily driver.

I accidentally factory reset in recovery and now I am stuck in a bootloop. My recovery is PhilZ Touch 6 CWM Base version v6.0.5.0.

I want to flash this ROM but I am having trouble installing TWRP. ADB does not detect my device because I probably did not enable USB Debugging. Can someone help me out?

Enter fastboot mode and flash twrp image with fastboot commands.

Flashboot is different from Hboot, right?

My options in Flashboot is Hboot, Ramdump, Reboot, Reboot Fastboot, and Power Down.

Sorry for double posting.

I don't see a flash option in my fastboot. Can you check out my attached photos? I'm really stuck on what to do.

I've used this for two days now, and here's what I observed:
•Everything seems to be smooth. The UI is great also.

But:
• The device shuts down occasionally, and I think it's usually when I'm using multiple apps at once.
• I've been unable to restore my synced contact on my Google account
• I'm also unable to connect to my Google account to restore WhatsApp chats backup from Google; instead of showing me to select an account to restore backup, it shows "add account", meanwhile I've already signed in to the account on the device.
If these issues could be looked into, that'll be great.

Thank you for this amazing work.

Update:

I did dirty flashing and it fixed the issues.

The phone seems to reboot once it shows "System UI not responding".

    Introduction
    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11 (R), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community.

    When is the next update is coming?
    When the next monthly security patches has been merged into LOS's sources.
    But actually asking ETA is not a good thing for me, I will release updates if I think it's needed.

    Thanks.
