    WARNING!!!
    Do not install this on a Idol 3 6045K 5.5

    After following everything here the LineageOS booted fine but without both SIM cards detected and without sound.
    What’s worse the fastboot commands stopped working.
    TWRP Recovery would not boot, so I could not flash modems for sims to work, couldn’t flash anything.
    No going back to working ROM, or to repair TWRP.

    After several hours I found the solution!
    Use the phones download mode.
    1. Turn off the phone.
    2. Plug in the USB cable to the phone and to the PC
    3. Press both volume buttons together with power button
    4. The phone will enter the Download mode
    5. Confirm download mode with Up Volume button
    6. Now use the Mobile Upgrade Q 5.0.0 to restore Official ROM

    I’m still downloading the image with the tool cause the download is very slow but this look like it will work.
