Hi Guys,

I have tried many of the ROMs available however, for the most part, I get this error "error executing updater binary" in TWRP. I have also tried CWM and Philz recovery. The only ROM that installs is CM11. Does any one know what is the issue? Anyone got a solution? Thanks.

Current Recovery: TWRP 2.7.1.1

I'm the only one experiencing this issue?

Are you checking the md5 when you download?

No, I did not. However, having said that, would it really be the case of corrupt downloads across multiple roms? As well, CM11 installs perfectly fine.

I'll do some checking now.

It's possible, I'm just throwing out the usual causes of your problem. It wouldn't be the first time it's happened.

Well, just re-downloaded AOSP from the oneplus homepage and flapped AOSP. I also checked their md5 hashes; they match. I will report back.

I'm getting this same message, except I'm getting it when trying to install the new OTA update. I'm rooted with custom recovery, but haven't flashed any ROM. After I download the update, I push "install update" and my phone reboots into TWRP to install the update, and then gives me the "error executing updater binary" error. I tried downloading the update manually off the web and installing it via TWRP on my own, but it gave me the same message. Not really sure what else to do at this point.

Just tried to flash both, both times I get the "error executing updater binary" error. I do not have the technical expertise to try to correct this.
