How did you get Cdroid ROM to install with Lineage recovery? I’ve never gotten anything but Lineage ROMs to install with Lineage recovery.

Hey Jerry, so when it comes to getting Lineage recovery, the specific version of CRDroid I use comes with it preinstall. So when I'm installing CRDroid with TWRP, I only install CRDroid, I then do adb reboot recovery and it takes me to the LineageOS Recovery. I actually will have a youtube video soon on my whole setup process for this phone specifically, as well as others. This phone is finicky when it comes to TWRP, which is one reason I'm glad LineageOS Recovery exists
