Exclamation [Q] Installing the Google Play Edition Rom

I am going to try to keep this as short and simple to understand. I was trying to install the Google Play Edition Rom and followed a video on YouTube (because I am rather new to rom installation). At this time I also unlocked my boot-loader, and rooted my phone. So rooting and unlocking boot-loader for me and my phone went smooth, no problems. But now I am trying to flash/install this rom and it will boot with the Google boot screen and the set-up for the phone launches, however after 3-4 seconds it re-boots and is in a boot loop of this. I can easily restore my phone to get out, however I am unsure about what I have done wrong. If someone could try to help a noob out that would be great.

Extra Info: Using the TWRP latest edition for recovery menu, not CWR.

I think the OP's are always a little unclear on the exact requirements of flashing tbh, but i believe you need to be S-OFF to flash a GPE Rom.

Also the latest firmware for GPE wouldn't do any harm, although the devil is in the detail
