Default New S3 International - Error 7 while trying to flash first Cyanogen Rom

Heres what I have done so far

- Rooted Phone
- Flashed TWRP 2.3.3.0
- Downloaded latest nightly rom
- Factory Reset
- Install rom


It starts the install and then flashes up an error 7. I then have to do a restore to get the phone usable again. Did not see this error in forum and wondered if anyone knew anything about it?

Thanks in advance.

not sure if it is connected to it, but did you try with Philz latest CWM based recovery? I heard that TWRP has problems with new Android versions.

Rooted - Radio: I9300TDUELL2 - PhilZ Touch Recovery - Kernel: Googy-Max
ROM: Slim Bean 4.3

Nexus 7 2013
Stock ROM - Not Rooted (lets see how long )

HTC Desire (A8181)
Hboot: Stock | Rooted & S-OFF
Rom: ICS Beta 0.15.0.1 | Radio: 5.17.05.23 | Kernel: Tiamat | Recovery: 4ExtRecovery Touch

Thanks for the info!

Is it fine just flashing a new recovery over the current one?

My issues are now resolved. I thought I would post for anyone else who finds themselves in this situation.

I used the Samsung Galaxy GS3 Toolkit to root my phone. The issue with this was that both options for recovery were out of date!

I flashed the latest clockwork mod and worked perfectly.



Thanks everyone that posted for your assistance!
