    My device: OnePlus5 A5000
    First of all I want to mention that I am kind of a novice on rooting so please do not go hard on me, mistakes happen. So I was running the lastest version of Android on my phone (Version 5.1.7) and decided to root my phone and use Magisk. So I unlocked my bootloader and I was going to work with TWRP. But I did a terrible mistake and wiped the system while experimenting. I know this is a very stupid mistake but it sadly happened. So my phone is basicly empty and has no OS running everytime with a black screen whenever I enter the system . The only thing I am able of doing is transfering files from my PC to my phone and using TWRP. I downloaded the original and latest OS version from OnePlus' site and moved it inside my phone. I then went on to install it via TWRP but I faced "Error 7". I did a research on that and I found out that it happens because it detects if it is a compatible ROM with the whole "assert" thing in META-INF in the "updater-script". I went on to unzip it and edit it with NotePad++to remove "assert" but "assert" was no where to be found since it was the original version. I then went on to try installing the lineage version for OnePLus 5 not knowing if it was going to work and it turned out to not work at all. I also want to mention that whenever I tried removing the "assert" from the lineage version I got an error of "Invalid zip file format!". Finally I want to mention that in order for me to view the files I worked by repairing the partition and converting it to FAT and exFAT(I did NOT convert it back to EXT4 yet). In case I am missing something or there is a way of solving it please let me know, I would really appreciate it! Also if you do not mind be as decscriptive as possible since I am a novice and I do not know everything like other individuals. I will though make a deep research on every single comment I get, I am not waiting for an easy solution on such a subject. I hope I can fix my phone with your help in the near future. Thanks in advance!
    Files that I have downloaded (if necessary):
    1)ADB Files
    2)Original version of latest OnePlus 5 Update (5.1.7) (.zip file)
    3)Lineage ROM for One Plus 5 (15.1-20181127-nightly-cheeseburger-signed)
    4)TWRP (3.2.3-0-cheeseburger)
