Step 4: Once into TWRP, take a Nandroid backup. To do so, tap Backup option and select all the partitions including the system, data, boot, recovery, EFS and cache(optional).
Step 5: Now return to the home screen again and tap Install option. Navigate to the Root-Boot file from your internal storage and select it.

Step 8: Once installation completes, you can wipe the Dalvik cache or simply choose reboot to system option.
If the system doesn’t boot or you come across boot loop, a factory reset from the recovery should do the trick(but u will lose data). If that fails, you can restore your previous ROM from the TWRP recovery. Follow and share us on social media. If you need any help, then comment down below.
