Reboot your phone to fastboot mode
Open cmd and go to the folder where platform tools are (DO NOT USE POWERSHELL!)
Enter following commands by copypasting one by one:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot flash --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Reboot your phone to recovery mode, click "Install update" -> "ADB Sideload"
In cmd enter command:
adb sideload Nameless-AOSP_xxx.zip
Wait until your device shows Step 2/2 and back arrow appears. Click back arrow, then click "Factory reset" -> "Format data/factory reset" -> "Format data"info
Progress on your pc will stop at around 47%. It is normal behaviour. Click back arrow in recovery, then click "Reboot to system"
