Exclamation [Q] E971 Optimus G fails to install custom ROM!

I was able to boot into TWRP and this was the first custom rom being installed every. I messed up and wiped the stock rom and now when I try to flash a custom ROM it says "Failed" and when I try to reboot to fix this it says "NO OS INSTALLED ARE YOU SURE?" If I reboot to recovery will it boot to recovery or fail? Please help. I tried to find link to stock roms but download links are broken

What do I do now? Is there a way to fix this?
I cannot put files onto do the SDcard unless I adb push which I did but still fail!

Yes! I managed to find a ROM that works! The AOSP Geeb KitKat 4.4 houstonn v3! The first time I flashed it it got stuck into the google boot loop. Then flashed it again and it worked!
If anyone has a problem with your model being "geehrc4g" and not wanting to install other roms get the rom at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2509457

...then why not just remove the device check from the install script?
Optimus G F180S, Sling v2.2.2 (KK 4.4.2)
Xperia X10 Mini, rooted stock 2.1
MeMO Pad HD 7 ME173X, rooted US stock 4.2.2

To whom it may concern: STOP nagging about pressing the freakin' Thanks button!!! It is rude, stupid, and annoying as hell. I am not an idiot who needs a huge in-my-face reminder to press it, and I will press it when I feel thankful, not because you asked for it!

I don't know how to do this

I looked in the update-script file thing to change the device names but didn't want to change the wrong thing and render the device useless

Can someone explain what I need to edit in the update-script file for it in order to flash a rom?

In twrp after selecting the custom rom zip
Did you remove check box ..where it shows verification (click on it )

After that ...Try to flash ROM by swiping

I am not familiar with TWRP options, but I believe you are talking about package signature verification, which is a completely different thing...

One of the first few lines of the script usually has a device type verification. It may be the assert check, or a different syntax (looking for certain build.prop properties), but it's pretty obvious. You just need to remove that one line, so the script doesn't check for your device model.

I don't have a specific example handy right now to show you, but it's been discussed many times before. Just try searching for "remove assert" or similar.

Please note that if, by removing this check, you manage to flash something totally incompatible with your device and royally screw it up, it's your fault, and your problem.

Thanks everyone. So I can flash a e973 ROM on e971? Both Canadian models

The script starts with;
Quote:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "e975" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "e975" || abort("This package is for \"e975\" devices; this is a \"" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "\"."); );
I delete that whole thing? Even though it has two semi colons at the end or is one of the semi colons for the abort function and one of the whole assert function?
