The ROM don't boot, I let the phone for 10 minutes only the bootanimation logo. I flash first January then boottwrp and then the zip of the ROM.
Yeah same thing here. Tried both, the non-gapps and gapps one, even though they're the same size.

Flash the rom then twrp... Then boot.
Flashing TWRP has nothing to do with the booting of the rom.
Its only if you want to be able to boot into TWRP.
You can flash any rom without having to flash TWRP.

    Bug reporting:

    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab dmesg . (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    • Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues.

    Gapps are no longer included. they will need to be flashed separately if you plan to use and i recommend Open gapps(package is your choice) as they include the a/b backup script needed for our updater app when we start using it.

    FAQ and Install instructions:
