Exclamation Failing to Flash ROM. (Status errors)

So here I am again, after a while.
Have changed like hundred of ROMs about year ago on Galaxy S III and Galaxy S II, it was still time when newest android version was 4.1.2 i think.

So now i have a problem, big one. I bought Galaxy S II again, and wanted to flash new rom, because version that i had was 4.1.2.
It was horrible, i effd up my phone big time and flashed stock rom trough Odin, now its 4.0.3. It's old like my granny, but it's very fast. I'm spending like only 38% of my RAM.

But still i wanted to change ROM, and put on the new 4.4.2, but only that kind which don't takes more than 50% of ram.

Adding Screenie, so you can check out what kernel am I using.



using as stock rom - I9100XXLPQ_I9100OXALPQ_I9100XXLPQ_HOME.tar.md5 (file name)
and as root - CF-Root-SGS2_XX_XEO_LPQ-v5.3-CWM5 (file name)

I Have tried to flash any of the ROMs trough CMW recovery with the kernel i have now, but still i got Failed to install update. Some kind of e:emmc (Status 7 error), i tried to fix it, fixed. But now I had Status 6 error. It seems that i can't open the update (ROM).

So i'm asking for help. Maybe some1, could give me the right ROM, right KERNEL and RECOVERY. and step-by-step guide to avoid those errors and fails.

I'm sorry if i'm posting new thread, but i can't really find and answer to my question and problem. I would be greatful if someone could just help me and guide trough this problem, if not here, then maybe in PM.

You don't need a step to step guide. Just flash a kitkat compatible CWM (search for it), before flashing a kitkat rom. Everything else goes the same.
Search and read before asking questions!

Hi

As long as your phone is rooted and have custom cwm

You can flash this kernel

Then dont reboot the system
Reboot to recovery
Full wipe
Flash kk rom zip
Flash gapps

Thankyou very much both of you. Seems to me i just had old CMW. I installed new one, and sucessfully flashed rom and gapps.

The problem now is that file transfering, deleting and folder opening when connected USB is really slow or folders won't even open. So i really can't transfer any files from my PC.
Thanks.

Make sure the screen is on and the phone is unlocked and try a different usb transferring modus.

Default cwm 6.0.4.5 can't open kitkat rom

Hi,
classic intro i guess, i'm new to the forum, was going to open a new thread, when in fact this one seems perfect. Still, if i shouldn't be doing it, i apologies in advance, please let me know....

Now,
as i said the original topic replicates almost exactly the issue i'm facing.
  • i have Galaxy S2 i9001, i had rooted it, then tried to flash a rom, failed that, found a guide which got me to have rooted stock (i assume it is a stock rom) version 4.0.3, similar kernel version listed in the original post (i hope is ok to list below the file names? this is the file i used to get there: I9100XXLPQ_I9100OXALPQ_I9100XXLPQ_HOME.tar.md5)
  • I flashed CWM version 6.0.4.5, which, reading from this thread, should be compatible with KK roms.
  • i didn't manage to install the newer version listed in that thread as inside the zip there is no .tar file for odin to read, so not sure how i would do that. same for the other "philz" file listed. i'm a noob after all....
  • So, with CWM 6.0.4.5 on, i downloaded into external SD card a few different ROMs
    pa_i9100-4.3-BETA6-20140523.zip
    aokp_i9100_kitkat_unofficial_2014-04-14.zip
    Resurrection_Remix_KK_v5.1.1-20140507-i9100.zip
  • rebooter into recovery, followed the wipes listed in the ROMs threads then tried to "install zip" and for each file i get the same messages:
    Installing: /PATH
    Finding update package
    Opening update package
    Can't open /PATH

i hope someone could help me understand what it is that i'm doing wrong?

any help would be really appreciated, please!!
