Step 5: Now wipe the current system. To do so, return to home screen and tap the Wipe option in TWRP. Tap Advanced Wipe and select partitions like system, boot, data, cache, Dalvik cache. Do not, in any case, select internal storage, unless you know what you are doing.

Step 7: Now swipe right on the confirmation action button below to install the ROM.

Step 8: Go back and select the compatible Google apps zip file from the location in your internal storage.

Step 9: Once selected, swipe right on the confirmation action button below to flash them.

Step 10: Once installation completes, you can wipe the Dalvik cache or simply choose reboot to system option.

Step 11: Once you reboot, you should see the new CyanogenMod logo. this means that the ROM has been installed successfully. First boot may take a while. If the ROM doesn’t boot or you come across boot loop, a factory reset from the recovery should do the trick. If that fails, you can restore our previous ROM from the TWRP recovery.
