Finally got around to rooting and ROM'ing my Exhibit II to KitKat (Slim). One thing I came across is that by following posted instructions I installed 6012 CWM and thereafter could not install any of the roms I tried as I was getting 'status (7)' failures! After trying for HOURS I discovered that I had to install 6045 CWM to get the roms to install. So there appears to be a dependency of CWM version to rom version. Can anybody shed any light on this and explain which CWM version is applicable to which specific custom rom? Thanks.

i'm far from expert, but I think I can give you a decent explanation.. I don't think cwm is "rom specific" as you say, but more like "android specific" like ginger bread, jellybean, and kitkat. older versions of cwm work with older versions of android os.. I hope that makes senses, sorry I can't go into more detail but i'm not a 100% on it.
