Should we be able to directly update this version to the zip posted on https://dl.omnirom.org/zenfone8/ ?
I'm currently running the microg version and I tried updating with the zip but I get error messages, from the logs I can see this for example:
update_engine: [ERROR:payload_metadata.cc(217)] Manifest hash verification failed.
update_engine: [ERROR:delta_performer.cc(547)] Mandatory metadata signature validation failed

Edit: Forgot to edit this, but flashed it with twrp and that worked fine

Hi,

I get these errors:

W:\AndroiD\Android SDK\platform-tools>fastboot flash system system.img
Sending sparse 'system' 1/3 (458752 KB) OKAY [ 10.670s]
Writing 'system' FAILED (remote: 'Partition not found')
fastboot: error: Command failed

Is it because I already flashed TWRP?

I don't know what you're trying to do or how, but all versions of this ROM except the first are flashable ZIP files. With TWRP installed you flash the downloaded ZIP just like you would on any other device. The OP's instructions were for flashing the initial version over the factory software only.

Would it be possible to increase the number of volume steps in this rom?
Seems like the volume go straight from "low" to "high" with a single step on this phone

Would anybody care to state the steps to install the ROM once TWRP is installed? I've installed custom roms on a bunch of the phones I've installed, but once I got them working, I never messed with them again. So I don't have the process memorized.

When I try to "install" the .zip file from inside of TWRP, the screen flashes black, then the main TWRP menu comes up again, and OmniROM is not installed.
