Default Assert failed: getprop("ro.bootloader" during flashing of LiquidSmooth 2.37 T999

Assert failed: getprop("ro.bootloader" showed up when I tried to flash LiquidSmooth 2.37 4.3.1 onto my T-Mobile T999. Any help please?

Did you receive and install the Stock OTA update to 4.3 ? The process to resolve your issue depends on that answer.

In that case, first make sure you have the latest version of the custom recovery of your choice. If its not then update it and try. If it is latest then read on.


Best if you take the rom zip and open it on pc with winzip or similar. Then go to
/Meta-Inf/com/google/android/ folder. There you will see a file called updater script. Open it with Wordpad and NOT NOTEPAD! Inside first few lines, you will see something like
Code:
assert(getprop("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVDLJA" ||
       getprop("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVDLJC" ||
       getprop("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVDMD5" ||
       getprop("ro.bootloader") == "T999VVLDLL1" ||
       getprop("ro.bootloader") == "T999LUVAMB7" ||
       getprop("ro.bootloader") == "T999VVLDMF2");
show_progress(0.500000, 0);
There, delete the part before
show_progress(0.500000, 0);

Close the file and save it back to the zip. Put the zip on your External sd card and flash via recovery.

What do you mean by version of custom recoery? Sorry, I'm a noob. And when you say delete the part before, 'show_progress((0.500000, 0);, do i delete everything before it lesving only that ?

Yes you delete all the Assert statement before that. But before you do that, please check the Version of your Custom Recovery.

When you boot to Custom Recovery, CWM or TWRP, you will see its version at the top.

Yes that's the correct version. You should try removing the Asserts.
