Default [Q] Unable to install CM - installation aborted

I was trying to install CM11. Tried installing the zip from external memory and from an SD. Tried four different versions of CM but here's the message I always get:

This package is for "m3, m3xx, i9305, GT-I9305" devices:
this is a "m0"
E: Error in /sdcard/cm-11-20140117-NIGHTLY-i9305.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

Could it be that Samsung Knox has something to do with this error? Root gone wrong? I am unable to check the root status since Knox is closing superSU.

I would appreciate all the help I can get.

Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9305 4.3 official firmware

Maybe you got the wrong (outdated) Recovery. Try to flash latest Recovery (cwm vor TWRP) and that should work! :thumbup:

I have tried a few different CM11 ROM's and its all has failed... initially I got the error message

"This package is for "m3, m3xx, i9300, GT-I9305" devices:
this is a "m3"

I then looked for the GT-I9305 ROM and now i am getting a different error message... pic attached...

Can anyone help please...

What i did... I clicked Install, chose the ROM(latest cm-11-20140909), then Add More Zips and selected gapps-kk-20140606-signed.zip (which i downloaded from wikipedia)

and its showing failed... And i did a factory reset before I did the above....

Please Help...

Have you tried using Philz?

Make sure you click the i9305 button and check the file name before flashing it otherwise you will hardbrick your phone.

Use Phil recovery or CWM, twrp has been giving me problems since 2.6.0.0. I am currently using cwm touch, besides a few freezes (which was fixed by pulling the battery) I didnt get any errors or problems with it
