Now that I'm done saving my butt, let's proceed :D

Flashing and updating

Clean Install
- Backup all your data (Important)
- Wipe /system, /data and cache.
- Flash the ROM + GApps (Download link below)
- Reboot

Updates
- Wipe anything you want to (Optional)
- Install ROM + GApps
- Reboot

Getting a recovery
Since many people have trouble installing recovery, I might as well add it up here.
Use the recovery installer app to get to twrp. Alternatively, you could download it off the link below and copy to your adb folder. Then execute the following in your adb directory
Code:
adb root
adb wait-for-device
adb push PathToRecoveryImage.img /tmp/twrp.img
adb shell dd if=/tmp/twrp.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/FOTAKernel
If you don't have access to a computer, download terminal emulator and execute these:
Code:
su
dd if=PathToRecoveryImageOnPhone.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/FOTAKernel

Downloads
ROM: BETA1
GApps: OpenGapps (Use nano or pico)
FOR ANDROID 7.1 USE THIS
OpenGapps (Patched): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=457095661767103604
Recommended Recovery (optional) : TWRP 3.0.2-0

Issues and reports
Before submitting a crash/issue/bug, make sure you:
- Are not using a custom kernel
- Are not using any mods.
(In case you are, make sure it's unrelated to the issue and mention it)
Share a logcat using adb or an app like CatLog.

Q&A - FAQ

Q : Is root access included into AOSP?
A : No it is not. Just flash SuperSU.

Q : Is the ROM suited for daily usage ?
A : Getting there.

Q : Google Service crashes during Setup Wizard, solutions ?
A : Try to get through the setup. If not, do this with a computer and adb :
Code:
adb shell pm grant com.google.android.setupwizard android.permission.READ_CONTACTS
adb shell pm grant com.google.android.setupwizard android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS
adb shell pm grant com.google.android.setupwizard android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION

Q : GApps crash all the time, what to do ?
A : Get through Setup Wizard, head over to settings and enable all permissions for Google Play services and Play store. Reboot and it should stop FC-ing.

Q : I see errors during the installation, is it normal ?
A : If it is E:unknown command [log] , ignore it for now

Q : Where can I change the Quick Tiles and Status Bar ?
A : Long press the Settings icon in the notifications drawer.
You will have access to the SystemUI Tuner from Marshmallow.

When I first heard that Xperia L won't ever get an update from 4.2.2 and I saw the 4.4 custom ROM, I thought that custom ROM development will end with 5.0... And here I am, seeing that we have 7 is a really great feeling. Thank you guys for working your asses of for us, you are the best!

    Fixed FM Radio.
    Added Browser.
    Download
    Link in OP Updated.
    Since we now have everything working other than Camcorder, the ROM is now marked BETA. FM Radio works fine now and I've added the Browser app.
    NOTE: In my testing, OpenGapps had Setup Wizard constantly crashing. Using these patched gapps seemed to work fine.
    Gapps (Nano, patched): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=457095661767103604
    You will have to force stop and enable permissions for Google Play Services after getting through setup wizard.
    I haven't tested root yet.
    Let me know if there's any other issues :D

    EDIT: SuperSU seems to be working fine. It breaks FM though.
