Unhappy [Q] Cant install any custom rom - Green CWM V2.5.1.0 Speedmod ULFK

Hi ,

I have followed the the procedure 【Guide】How To flash ANY Captivate ROM from Stock (including ICS) to upgrade my Froyo 2.1 to any latest rom but it failed to do so due to error
Quote:
Installing:SDCARD:Rom_name
Finding update package...
Opening Update package.......
Installing update.....
E:Error in /mnt/sdcard/Rom_name
(status 0)
Installation aborted
. I have now CWM recovery V2.5.1.0 Speedmod ULFX installed ( Green text one) . I have learned in so many posts that this version of CWM is too old to install recent ROMs . I've tried below rom but couldn't make that work :

CyanFox Rom

omni-MACKAY_ROM-4.4.2-20131217-galaxysmtd

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I've finally made my way to install [ROM][JB] [4.3] Avatar ROM for Samsung Captivate but it has just too many bugs.My keyboard is not working and keeps on crashing. Now i have CWM 6 installed and which helped this ROM installed. Regarding other ROM i have mentioned here is still giving me the same error.

Any idea?

Hi,

I was finally able to flash the AVATAR rom . I messed around with installing latest google apps and which made the keyboard crashed , Now its working like charm ,

However, here is what i did.

1. I followed the guide 【Guide】How To flash ANY Captivate ROM from Stock (including ICS) to upgrade my Eclair 2.1 . Did exactly what was in the tutorial and succeed . ** Just a note- I missed to copy ROM in the SD card , which i managed to do later by mounting USB storage from CWM .
2. I went for flashing and it was always giving me the error when i tried to flash my phone with the rom CyanFox Rom
3. Then i downloaded the rom AVATAR and went for flashing , suddenly the phone rebooted ( Still it did not install the ROM) and a new version of CWM 6 appeared with Blue text . From there i flashed the new ROM and it was a success.

Currently i am running my phone without any problem .

However, I still can not flash below ROM


CyanFox Rom

omni-MACKAY_ROM-4.4.2-20131217-galaxysmtd

do you have any idea on how to make it work ?

- stop asking same questions in 2 different threads, please
- read carefully the Guide in post #2 ant try to understand the process
- read carefully installation instructions for the ROMs you want to try
- avoid installation of experimental/ported ROMs as your first Custom ROM
- be careful what partition setup is needed for the ROM you want to install
- don't change default CM kernel for CM10.2 and up

- Acer Iconia Tab A200, ICS Android 4.0.3 (games tablet)
- Samsung i896 Captivate, JB Android 4.2.2 (backup phone)

Status 0 means that you have a wrong script (for your phone). The script in "/META-INF/com/google/android" folder. I doubt that it's the ROM's problem. I also flashed CyanFox 4.4 for Galaxy S II. But had to flash CWM 6.0.4.x first. It worked only then, it didn't even flash using CWM 6.0.3.

So I think you can also flash CWM 6.0.4.x on your cappy and try this?
