  1. stuck on step 4 Now to get in the Recovery Mode
    all I get on step 4 when I boot with power and volume down key is the factory reset, how can I get into the recovery mode that offers extended options to install the zip file?

    • You must have a recovery installed. Search for the TWRP c50 recovery, as well as download the TWRP app from the Play Store. Open the app when you are finished downloading the TWRP recovery file or scroll down to the “Recovery Version to Install” and click the latest version. Use common sense from there and the app will do the rest of the work.

  2. Does this rom have intergrated gapps?

    Hello, I downloaded it and copy it to my SD card. It’s the T-Mobile H345 variant, so I wipe the phone and try to install it, but it doesn’t. It doesn’t give me any red text, so I know it is compatible but I started reading and it said something about some files “not found” your help will be appreciated, thanks.
