black screen in twrp-126.96.36.199.
in 188.8.131.52 – error 7January 3, 2019 at 4:11 AM #65563
I’ve tried to install lineage16 on my ZTE axon 7 and it makes me freak out. I thought I’ve lost my phone, when I wipe out all the data, system and so, and tried to flash the last rom. I’ve got the error 7: this package is for axon 7 ailsa_ii. This device is.”
I’ve tried to flash all the ROMS (customs and stock) i could download, any version until I fortunately got A2017G-AROMA stock ROM by raystef66.
So, what is the deal with TWRP on flashing lineage16? anyone have got the same error?
