Default 4.4 roms wont flash to Sprint htc one

Hey guys,

Every time I try to flash a 4.4 rom whether it was Beanstalk or pure cyanogen 11 I got the same error while it I was flashing.

set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed

Then it says error in the file (status 7) installation aborted.

The only thing i could think of is that I am not s-off and I didn't see any requirements for that or anything else.

Thanks for any help.

I am afraid it's because of the recovery. It needs 2.6.3.3 recovery which isn't available for Sprint yet

Well i looked up status 7 error and got a fix for deleting some of the script for the rom, but that didn't even start the installation of the rom so I guess i'll give up for now.

Also, if that recovery isn't available then how are people flashing these roms? I would assume because they are developers.

Hardly a definitive answer (because I don't use the ROM in question), but you could consider using a different recovery such as CWM. That said, I'm running the GE 4.4 port, so take with a grain of salt.

is the only way to switch to twrp through the bootloader? i'm running cwm right now. I know there is a way to go through goo manager but the file never downloads to install twrp to begin with. I'm just not destined to run 4.4 i guess!

Anyways, Thanks for all your guys help.

I read somewhere you cant use goomanager now to flash TWRP, bootloader seems to be the only option unless there's a way to flash it through CWM...

Why not use a terminal emulator app? Although I have ran quite a bit of Kitkat roms and they all work for me.

Try this:

Get the latest update of TWRP:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2236620

Take that .img, rename it one word and put in the recoveries file in the AIO folder. Then use the tool to flash your updated recovery. It's what I did.
