Default [Q] Issues with TWRP on my VS-980

I attempted to flash TWRP to my VS-980 using flashify but once it was completed and I hit reboot I get a second of a couple lines in white at the top of my screen and then a black screen permanantly (15 + minutes) until I hold power for 10 seconds and then it reboots fine. But from there I couldn't get in to recovery (attempts to would result in a reboot) or bootloader (same) so I eventually had to flash back to stock and re-root which is where I am at now. I am able to flash CWM fine but I want TWRP. And the links in this thread are dead... Can anyone give me some assistance? Thanks in advance,
