What are my options? I have the latest version of TWRP. I have tried flashing multiple roms but I always get the "Error executing updater binary in zip" message.

You are old partition. You can only flash ROMs built for that. Also, you are S-on, so if the ROM you're trying to flash is not sense based with a kernel installer, you will have to extract the boot img and flash via fastboot or flash img GUI or flashify. Otherwise, relock your bootloader, run the .4 RUU and reobtain root and reinstall custom recovery and get S-off to flash new partition ROMs.

Edit:
Consider getting S-off first. Makes life easier.

Yea, I was going to try getting S-off first. I just don't know how that would go without an OS. I also extracted the boot img, and it still didn't work. Where would I find the RUU? Is it that shipped-roms website?
