I've looked at multiple forums, not just galaxy 3, and I can't find an answer to this problem. I keep getting the "symlinks: some symlinks fail - status 7" error when I try to flash certain roms. First of all, I'm rooted and unlocked. I have flashed CM10 and Synergy before (couple weeks ago,) but now I can't install any of the synergy nightlies or JB roms. I've tried to install from internal and external sd, and failed on both. I've flashed CWM touch and non touch 18.104.22.168 as well as twrp with the same error message. I've flashed the cwm recoveries through Rom Manager and Odin with no change. I loaded the latest Modem through Odin to see if that would fix the problem somehow, and that didn't work either. (Wasn't expecting it too.) Has anyone run into this issue and come out with a fix? I think I've done some pretty in depth research on this, but maybe I've missed something. I don't want to create a brick if someone has a fix. Thanks for the help.
