If you never installed a custom rom before, there's lots of video tutorials on how to do that.  Just search for "install lineageos" in youtube.  OR in the link I provided earlier

https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/klte/install

For your recovery program, I suggest TWRP at

Backup your data because the new OS and TWRP will overwrite everything.  Again, there's lots of video tutorials on how to flash a custom rom.

That went way over my head.  I am not experienced with installing operating systems, backing up data, and so on.  I have been around for a while but my expertise is in analog and hardware, so this is a foreign language to me.

If you would tell me more, a little at a time, maybe I could do it.  I don't want to brick my phone.

Someone asked what I consider a reasonable price.  Well, substantially less than what the providers charge.  Several hundred dollars is out of my price range.  If I could squeeze by for, say, $100 or so I might be able to handle that.

exc.

There are plenty of legit brand name options. You don't need to buy literal junk to get a cheap phone.

Thanks Cyberdragon, I will check those links.
