If I wipe everything using Advanced Wipe in TWRP that includes internal storage, where the rom is stored before installing it.. If internal storage is wiped how do I flash the rom with TWRP? I can't flash it from my PC, I guess I could ADB sideload it but that is a lot of hassle. Does internal storage really need wiping?

Confused noob. Bought my first android device a few days ago.

Edit: I have no external storage yet.

On the internal storage are a lot of samsung files stored.
So without wiping the internal storage you will get a LOT of samsung bloatware back...
But it should work, flashing without wiping internal storage.

The ideal situation is to have your ROM on the external card/storage so you can wipe your device completely and start with a clean fresh ROM.

Aight, I went to a friends house and borrowed his external sdcard so I can flash your rom and try it out. Thanks for the reply! Doing this mainly to get rid of the bloatware.
Working perfectly, only thing I've noticed is an odd graphical glitch now and then. Mainly when turning it on (during samsung model display) or when I take it out of sleep. Should one be concerned? Seems to work fine other than that. Also flashed cybertronics v5 kernel

No. The 8.4 and 10.1 have completely different CPUs so they can't share.

download latest version of flashify app from playstore
Then load twrp recovery from in flashify. Then pick a rom ..I suggest GraveD rom for t520. The best so far IMO.
