OK, I did that but got the same error. Downloaded cm11 again and had the same problem. Tried cm10 and that flashed correctly. Gets stuck on the CMOS animation though. Clearing cache etc doesn't allow it to boot. Ugh!

Try flash another rom like sense based rom.use recovery that Mr Hofs give you.

EDIT: Don't know why that recovery give error when flash cm11,it's kitkat based recovery.

Prompt
Hi Guys,

Firstly sorry for the late reply, been quite busy.

Secondly thanks for all the help, I finally managed to get CM installed with a combination of the suggested recovery, a different USB cable (I think this was the killer) and several attempts in fastboot etc.

My current problem is as shown:

Wakelock?

So battery life is pretty poor (even though i had the battery replaced with a new one!) So far I have set my location to battery saving, and manually chosen my mobile network which has improved it somewhat, but I am struggling to make one day with very little use. I know the battery is working well because I was n the phone for a while and it did not drop much.

There are no kernel or partial wakelocks that I can see, but as the screenshot shows there is quite a big discrepancy between Awake and screen on.

The only thing I can find (and please excuse my lack of understanding and ability with better battery stats) is that under Alarms, com.google.android.gms shoes as "54%"... so not sure on that one... halp?
