    The page for stock firmware zip file (CM 11S) from CyanogenMod is down or moved. Do you have any alternate link for the same?

      We have no any alternate source. Search on XDA or use LineageOS or Yu Open OS

      It means you are stuck in a bootloop. Try by wiping cache in recovery

    Can i do this via recovery(i have twrp recovery flashed).
    i rooted my phone and bricked it thrice(in 4 days), the last being when trying to flash dolby atmos. i thought of reinstalling the os.
    i bricked twice earlier trying to flash stock firmware via fastboot but it failed when trying to send “system parse”.
    can i select wipe system from twrp and then install cm 12.1( from cyanogen support) (using twrp–>intall).

      Not an issue. You can download the ROM for Cyanogen and flash it via fastboot.
