    I was trying to factory reset my phone through TWRP but I couldn't, every time I tried TWRP would just crash and reboot my phone, I tried it one more time and TWRP crashed again but this time my phone booted into recovery mode, not to the system, and now it's stuck on this screen, but it's not opening it, it just shows the LENOVO logo and it says to hold the power button to reboot the phone (which brings me back to this screen). I think the system is corrupted and I don't know what to do.

    a factory reset thru twrp wipes data, cache and dalvik. it should not have wipe system as it seems that is what happened. did you wipe anything else? do you have a nandroid backup? if you do you can just restore a nandroid backup. what phone do you have?

    It's a Lenovo Vibe K5, or A6020.
    And no, I don't have any backups. I can't even boot the phone, because as I said the phone goes to Recovery Mode but it never opens, it just gets stuck on the Lenovo logo.
    I can't connect the phone to the PC either, Windows detects the phone but I can't do anything with it.

    that was your first mistake......always do a nandroid backup before doing anything. can you boot into twrp?

    The only way I know of to boot into TWRP is by holding the power button > restart > TWRP, is there any other way? Since I can't boot the phone I can't go to TWRP by doing this.

    Lenovo phones don't come with TWRP, and I presume you originally installed it yourself, along with the rooted or custom ROM you were using.

    From what you describe, it sounds like it's corrupt and TWRP needs to installed again, and then the ROM.

    Yeah, but I can't enable USB debugging so I can install TWRP, is there any other way?

    No idea. I've only ever used TWRP on an Oppo Find 7.

    How did you root and install TWRP on the Lenovo originally?

    Go into fastboot mode (or download mode, either way it's part of the bootloader) and you can use fastboot (app you install on a computer) to flash a TWRP image. Obviously it must be the right image for your phone!

    The other option is to reflash with stock software, though if you do that it will overwrite both TWRP and any custom ROM you installed.
