After flashing the ROM, reboot to TWRP and then flash gapps or any other zips..Sorry for nope question! I follow the mentioned steps but my device have been bricked, and i have to fastboot the recovery.img and restore twrp backup from previous rom (RR-O-v6.2.0-20180913-tissot-Final)
PS. it gives me an error when I tried to flash GApps after flashing the lineage!
whats I missing here?!
The term firmware is generally applied to the modem partition which deals with your antenna and therefore is responsible for your mobile network signal.
It is not part of LOS and can be found in this thread.
There is other stuff going on in the firmware and many pie ROMs require a pie firmware. However, there have been problems when updating the firmware, especially with LTE band 20 in Europe.
Make TWRP backups, especially modem and EFS
