I have followed all the instructions to the last detail and watched the available videos but  when I try to go into recovery mode I get "rf calibration test fail" in red letters. I cant do anything to this red letter error( volume up and down and power button dont seem to work at all). Its a dead end.
I am unable to do anything from here (cant access recovery mode)
Please assist.

That's because you pressed the wrong button combo to boot into recovery mode.
Recovery mode is Volume up + Power button (in that order)

I have done the combination alright, volume up (keep holding) then power button and keep holding both, But my phone keeps on doing that startup vibration and then repeats the vibration over and over again with screen blank all that time. Nothing more happens.

There are no guarantees.
I would advise you create a new thread so we port one for your Build
