Dang !
The LVM File I have downloaded if for Find7, not find7a
(as what the red message said when I tried to flash setuplvm_find7_FULL_WIPE_09012014.zip on my 7a
Could someonekindly direct me towards the Find7a download link (search engine is down atm, so can't look for it in Omni Thread)

The android system have to communicate with this drivers which is done by propreitary binary modules - called "blobs".
If you flash or update ColorOs, these partitions would be updated in any way. Custom roms do not come with these updates, they resist on the driver-state the phone was when the custom rom was flashed. So, if you updated to a newer ColorOs you will have another base than the custom rom is made for. This can cause problems: If you have different low level drivers as the Rom depends on some functions will not wok correctly......" So if am on color os 1.2.6 i and shift to lvm based omni rom, do i have to flash the corresponding modem too? which in this case would be Omni Rom: Q_V1_P14 Modempackage_v1.2.0i_Find7a.zip. Some direction would help in understanding modems cos clearly "Baseband info shown in Device Info is no readout value, it is set by rom source."

This isn't really related to LVM, but in general:
Any ColorOS 1.2.x baseband should work fine with Omni.
JB 2.x basebands may work but aren't particularly tested
The basebands/bootloader of KK seem to have compatibility issues that need to be resolved

And I really need to update my baseband packages.

Question
Is there anything I could do to fix my Error executing updater binary ?

* Storage was not unified (Was thinking about it, but Entropy warnings in OP kinda cool me off and showed me how LVM is safer).
* Did a 4way wipe, and tried just installing lvm-> no luck.

Do I need to reverse to the Entropy512's lvm aware TWRP or is 2.8.0.1 fine ?
Can I flash Entropy512 twrp with TWRP manager or is it better to push it ?

I'm going to try and figure out why 2.8.0.1 is problematic, although I have a guess:
There were some issues ayysir from PA had with the lvmsetup ZIP not properly extracting the LVM config file and binary from the ZIP. So it would only work if recovery had the LVM config file and ZIP.

Part of the "final" LVM support in TWRP 2.8.0.1 moved some binaries around, which may be why lvmsetup fails.

The ADB instructions in one of the commit messages linked from the OP will work. I'll try and clean things up this weekend to get rid of the lvmsetup incompatibility issues.
