    Tried this a number of times but my Wileyfox Swift won’t boot!
    It keeps returning to the bootloader screen.
    TWRP is installed and seems to work fine.
    And the installation (lineage-14.1-20170508-nightly-crackling-signed.zip) seems to complete without error.

    Anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong?

    Ok so in the end I found a post from someone on XDA Developers (https://forum.xda-developers.com/wileyfox-swift/development/recovery-unofficial-twrp-3-0-1-0-t3350351) who was having the same problems as me.

    I found a CM 14.0 ROM, as they suggested, and flashed that instead.

    It worked fine and all seems good.

    Would prefer a LINEAGE 14.1 ROM though……
