Download beforehand to have available during initial flash.

Also for myself, I was able to keep Data by going to Advanced in twrp and only formatting /system dalvik cache, and cache. Mileage may very.

Huge thanks to @aidfarh for getting this off the ground!!

Actually CM12 uses its own Privacy Guard to manage root, so you don't really need SuperSu or any other superuser app.

Install failed. You think it can just be a bad file and I should download it again?

Check the MD5 after downloading to insure the file is as expected.

I have this CM12 installed and running on my v510 right now and it is unbelievable. The thrill of seeing the cyanogen boot ani on my v510 was beyond words. Will report any issues but it looks great so far. I did a dirty flash (only wiped system, dalvik cache and cache) over the stock lollipop and Sleekai4.7 with no problems. Will likely clean full wipe install later today but just wanted to play, thank you so much for breathing new life into this great device.
Thank you sir, will be sending you some $$$ today you deserve it.
Fantastic work !!!

You're using an outdated version of TWRP. Use the TWRP from here:

Simply put, it is a way to insure that what you downloaded is what was put on the download site by the creator. There are many windows and android free versions of the MD5 checksum utility. Once you download something you open it in the MD5 checker and it will generate and MD5 hash (among others) you then compare it to the one on the download page. If it does not match it is not the same file as placed there. Either a bad download or worse case scenario a virus or other malware was injected into the download.

As I look closer at your screen shot you have an old version of TWRP follow the recommened link for the latest version in the OP and you should be fine. You can easliy update it with flashify.
