Just curious, and not trying to offend or anything, but did you flash the zip in the custom recovery?

Are you in the stock recovery or a custom recovery like TWRP, ClockWorkMod, or Philz? Do you see an option that says "Install Zip" or something similar?

Hmm... Do you have the correct ROM, one specifically for our device? What's the fail error? Oh and bro, my battery is close to dying, just so you know.

Let me guess at the error, is it Status 7? After reading the link you provided you installed an old version of Philz that won't allow you to flash cm11 (which I'm assuming us what you're trying to flash). If this is the case you need to update that bad boy. Look for Android-Andi and in his signature are up to date recoveries. Philz is great but I recommend the cwm swipe, it's a beast and has all the options we need for a tablet.

That's totally why. You're lucky you didn't brick it trying to flash that. DL a ROM for the 10 inch and I would look into upgrading the recovery of you're going to KitKat.
