I did what is written in the fifth posting here to turn on adb. Unfortunately I have adb only in TWRP and not in the Android booting process.
Is there something wrong with what I did to enable adb? Or is adb not starting that early in the boot process and it can't work?

What did you do to cause the bootloop? If you were on stock then flashed a custom ROM but did not factory reset, wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache when you flashed the ROM, that is why you are getting a bootloop. You can't flash a custom ROM over stock without wiping. If this is what you did, boot into TWRP and factory reset, wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache then see if it reboots correctly.
If this is not what caused your bootloop, try booting into TWRP, select the Wipe option then select the "advanced wipe" option, then select only the cache partition and dalvik cache, then wipe them and try rebooting.
