You probably have the JB bootloader as the only other bootloader is ICS and I don't think M7 will run on an ICS bootloader.

Many older ROMs will run on newer bootloaders. If you don't have the correct bootloader for the ROM, the install will fail with an assert error.

If you want an updated version of CM on your device, you need the ones built for JB bootloader: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?de...o_msm8960_jbbl
