Sorry - I don't really know which (if any) ROM would coexist better with GooManager. Maybe ask in the TWRP thread about the problem that you are experiencing with the installation method #2?

Plug the phone in, and then when it vibrates for the first time, take out the charger. Now, (You have to be really quick here) Hold the volume down button, as the phone should reboot in a few seconds. Hold it down for about 30 - 40 seconds, and the phone should stay on the splash screen. Then you can let go of the volume button and plug it into the PC.

This might take a few attempts, but it should work...

I presume it's then in fastboot mode so adb can be used to install a recovery?

 

It's then in fastboot mode so fastboot.exe can be used to install a recovery. The ADB is for when android is running. Fastboot is for the bootloader.

Have a go. Hold volume down when it vibrates (thats when boot starts). Keep holding it for 30 seconds, and if it reboots, try holding power and volume down.

no, download mode is something else, when holding both volume buttons and uses the file from dload/update.app or if there is no folder just a pink screen

OK - I would have called that force[d] update mode but as ever some of the terminology is not that clear...

So you can try a forced update to a stock update.app maybe?

I can't remember - do you not have to root and/or unlock the bootloader first?

Root > (Officially) Unlock Bootloader > Flash TWRP in Fastboot > Install Custom ROM
