This may help if you had troubling which Custom ROMs you wanna install for you device. Here some of my experiences on each OS version ROMs that i have tested. Check down below on which Custom ROMs that i have tested.

Android 2.3.6 = Stock, fast from my experience in 2012.

Android 4.1.2 = Stock, Lags and freezing. [because of TouchWiz bloatwares]

Android 4.2.2 = Haven't tried it.

Android 4.3.1 = Haven't tried it.

Android 4.4.4 = Fast and smooth. *Recommended for daily use

Android 5.1.1 = Lags and unusable. *Older builds

Android 6.0.1 = Fast and smooth. *Also good for daily use

Android 7.1.2 = Fast but unusable with Gapps. *Can be use daily but don't

Android 8.1.0 = Fast but stutters on notification bar, recent app, default launcher, etc. *Older builds

Android 8.1 Go = Lags and unusable. *Older builds

Android 9.0.0 = Slow but expected, since it's still in alpha stage.

Some Gapps:
HDPIGapps working fine.
OpenGapps Setup Wizard and a lot of systems app crash constantly for Android 6, 7 & 8.
Haven't tried MicoG yet.


Custom ROMs that I tested:

Android 4.4.4 = LiquidSmooth Rom (iiD4x), CM11 (TeamCanjica), CM11 (Chrono), CM11 (A2N).

Android 5.1.1 = CM12.1 (Straciatella), OmniROM (Chrono).

Android 6.0.1 = UltimateROM (Chrono), LineageOS 13 (SergeyL).

Android 7.1.2 = Resurrection Remix-N (Chrono), LineageOS 14.1 (SergeyL).

Android 8.1.0 = LineageOS 15.1 (SergeyL), LineageOS 15.1 Go Edition (Chrono).

Android 9.0.0 = LineageOS 16 (Chrono).


Currently Using:

-None at the moment-

What do you mean? I just follow the instruction on which custom rom i'll going to install, If you mean like the newer LineageOS 15.1 by SergeyL or Chrono just follow bien2004 instruction LOS15.1 thread on how to install it (it also works with LOS 13/14.1 SergeyL)

So far I've understood that you need to have a custom recovery to install any custom ROM, I might be in a false assumption.
That is the reason why I tried to install TWRP but failed in first attempt see

The only way is to install TWRP is using Chrono Kernel which came with TWRP Recovery after installing it.

And the TWRP you trying to install is old which bricks most user.Chrono kernel works with Stock 4.1.2 so no worry

Chrono Kernel is only work on 4.1.2+, and what I meant by is the kernel itself have an inbuilt TWRP Recovery.You should update your device to jelly bean first before doing this.

Shall I do OTA update or flashing the image as downloading the image from hosting pages takes ages.

Just use Odin it's much easier, if things go wrong you can just flash back to stock (without re downloading it again).Here the links https://updato.com/firmware-archive-...1.2%29&rpp=100 (better than SamMobile since you need to be premium user to download the older ones and also faster download speed) or you can go here http://www.xda.mister-freeze.eu/XDA-...160/Stock_ROM/ (this from a2n server, choose the I8160XXMB4).
