Yes - I´ve read corresponding articles first (as a new user I may only post two links): https://community.e.foundation/t …

Still, I´m having issues with entering the TWRP. I tried to install eOS for about 15 times, with high concentration on pushing the correct buttons at the correct time. But nothing worked. Now I´m not sure, if I am really too clumsy or if there is maybe a technical issue. Or do I miss the big red button which says “push me and everything is fine”?
Could someone please check on the LogFile?

What kind of (user) errors should I double check? Cables, locks, specific phone model, motherboard usb-drivers…?
It just worked and I managed to install e/OS on my phone =) Thanks a lot!!!
For all the other desperate people looking for some help, I´ll share what I have done:
Inserted SIM card (for about a few hours).
Activated Location (GPS) Service.
Made a 5 minute call.
Used another USB cable.
At the end, it worked out! I do not exactly knwo which of the points was the crucial point. Probably it had to do with KG/RMM.
But be encouraged, that this great community provides quite accurate support. =)
